And away we go… Moths with a genetically modified kill switch to be released into the wild. The words 'likely' and 'unlikely' are used repeatedly to justify the release: 'unlikely to impact the environment or humans' and 'likely kille
In 2016, IBM made a five-qubit quantum processor available to developers, researchers and programmers for experimentation via its cloud portal.
It's a big one.
For the first time, scientists have revealed the chemical structure of one of the key markers of Alzheimer's disease, capturing high-resolution images of the abnormal tau protein deposits suspected to be behind Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative
Michael Brandt has all the resume highlights that tech entrepreneurs dream of: Stanford grad, ex-Google employee and an Andreessen Horowitz backing for his startup.
Instead of relying on silicon-based devices, a new 3D chip uses carbon nanotubes, which are sheets of 2-D graphene formed into nanocylinders, and resistive random-access memory (RRAM) cells, a type of nonvolatile memory that operates by changing the
This new technology could dictate where people walk, ride bikes, go to school, and so much more.
The sun is heading towards a solar minimum, say NASA scientists, expected in 2019-2020.
Scientists have been examining Greenland sharks - some of which were born in the 1750s
How do you make research in space less expensive? Why not build a space station where half of the structure functions as a luxury hotel–and the other half belongs to NASA's astronauts?
E.E.G. is a technology that has been in use for over a hundred years, mostly in the medical field- to read brain waves.
Welcome to New World Next Week -- the video series from Corbett Report and Media Monarchy that covers some of the most important developments in open source intelligence news. In this week's episode:
The silvery vacuum chamber resembles a zeppelin, the vaguely Art Deco lines of the welds between its stainless steel panels looking at once futuristic and old-fashioned.
NASA's Space Technology Mission Directorate (STMD) is keenly interested in nanotechnology – an approach that can reduce the mass and improve the performance of aerospace systems.
Water is way weirder than you might think.
In the early 1990s, Xerox Parc researchers showed off a futuristic concept they called the Digital Desk. It looked like any other metal workstation, aside from the unusual setup that hovered overhead. Two video cameras hung from a rig above the desk,
New research details method for distilling water by converting solar energy.
Engineers at the University of Twente have developed a new biopsy robot made from 3D-printed plastic. This allows it to operate inside a MRI scanner so accurate biopsies can be taken with real-time visualization of the abnormal tissue. It's hoped the
Volkswagen has been pushing hard with its concept cars recently, using the Paris and Detroit Auto Shows to provide a glimpse of its plans for an electric future. The ID Buzz and Crozz have now been joined by the Gen.E Research Vehicle which, undernea
The Dove soap company has released a new line of bodywash for fat women (really, they did). For some reason the strange marketing campaign believes that overweight women want bodywash or shampoo bottles that are shaped like them. Media analyst Mark D
It's been more than three years since Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 vanished, and after spending $150 million and scouring a huge chunk of the Indian Ocean, the international search effort has turned up just a few scraps of metal.

CEO reiterates target of selling one million electric cars and hybrids by 2025
But, different systems and organs thrive in different pH levels. Specifically, the skin has a pH of 5, and the saliva has a pH of 6.5-7.0. Additionally, the digestive tract has a pH that varies from 1.5 to 7.0. It typically depends on various fact
Humans were never really meant to live in space, but that hasn't stopped us from trying.
Nasdaq has issued a market-wide trading halt amid what appears to be a "glitch" that sent a number of the largest Nasdaq-listed stocks to crash or spike to exactly $123.47 per share.
Last July 4th, NASA's Juno spacecraft slowed its record breaking pace just enough to get caught in the pull of Jupiter's gravity. (The timing, according to NASA, was just a very patriotic coincidence.) Either way, Independence Day 2016 was the last t
Along with burgers, brats, and BBQ, fireworks are a Fourth of July staple in the US. And they always have been. Founding father John Adams wanted "illuminations from one end of this continent to the other" to commemorate Independence Day even befor
Best hope of repairing injured spines.
IBM scientists have made carbon nanotube transistors smaller and faster silicon transistors. Carbon nanotube transistors have long had the potential to be better than silicon, but this is the first time when that promise has been realized.
