Scientists have developed a special DNA clamp to act as a diagnostic nano machine.
So question is, when did these symbolic practices start to define humanity? There is no easy answer, and we may never gather enough evidence to come up with a definitive timeline. But there are two broad theories about how it happened. One suggests h
Solar physicist Richard Harrison says he has never seen the sun this quiet in more than 30 years of studying it.

We have all sorts of ways to communicate with one another: text messages, emails, Gchats and, according to my sources, even phone calls.
Google latest bombshell of a research project is a smart contact lens diabetics can use to read blood sugar levels through the tears in their eyes.
The Great Pyramid of Giza is 174 meters tall and weighs 10 megatons.
We've seen a cornucopia of 3D food printers specialized for consumer and prosumer chefs, from the multipurpose Foodini to 3D Systems' ChefBot.
The reason for why most diets fail, in our opinion, is that they impose unrealistic restrictions on how you live your life. Some advocate eating tons of protein others emphasise carbohydrates. In either case, you're left with having to make rather d
On Wednesday former vice president Al Gore called geoengineering proposals “delusional in the extreme”.
Laster Technologies has been in the augmented reality (AR) business since 2005. Since 2011, we've been hearing word of an imminent AR headset from the Paris-based company, and this year we've finally got it.
The last time anyone got really excited about zipper technology was probably when someone actually invented zippers.
Japanese space scientists are set to trial a tether they hope will help pull junk out of orbit around Earth, clearing up tonnes of planetary clutter, they said Thursday.
3-D printing, getting more mainstream all the time
To create one of those 3-D holographic images, you record how countless beams of light bounce off an object and then you store these little bits of information across a vast database.
Previously, chemists have managed to create artificial cell walls and developed synthetic DNA to produce self-replicating, synthetic bacterial cells.
They say that nothing takes you out of a fun situation quite like filming it – you stop being a participant, and start being an observer.
What is the solution to a greener, more physically-fit planet? Biking! Even though forward-thinking cities already use bikes for their transportation, the US has been lagging behind. Even though biking is fun and practical, there are
In 2012, researchers from the University of Florida reported a record efficiency of 8.6 percent for a prototype solar cell consisting of a wafer of silicon coated with a layer of graphene doped with .....
Hijacking sperm cells to create little robots might seem far out, but that's exactly what researchers from the Dresden Institute for Integrative Nanosciences have done.
As I ascended the stairs to the second floor of Utah's Mars Desert Research Station, something struck me as strange: the lights were off and the crew was quiet at what was usually a busy time — 5 p.m.
Most children fall within 13 points of their parents IQ level. But every once in a while, a child will have a far higher IQ than his parents.
“Triton uses a new technology of artificial gill model. - It extracts oxygen under water through a filter in the form of fine threads with holes smaller than water molecules. - This is a technology developed by a Korean scientist that allows us to
The uncertainty principle says that you can’t know certain properties of a quantum system at the same time.
And that is not all. For when heated, vanadium dioxide’s crystals begin to rapidly contract along one dimension, while expanding along the other two, showing that a structural phase transition effected by temperature changes is also taking place. Thi
Children who watch the most TV have the most profound changes to their brain structure The authors said the impact of watching TV on the ‘structural development’ of the brain has never before been investigated. ‘In conclusion, TV viewing is direc
European researchers have announced a breakthrough in the development of artificial bone marrow which expands the ability of scientists to reproduce stem cells in the lab and could lead to increased availability of treatment for leukemia sufferers.
The human brain won't be surpassed by computers any time soon.
Previous attempts to transplant uteri have largely failed.
