The thermoelectric effect is nothing new - it was discovered almost 200 years ago by Thomas J. Seebeck. If two different metals are brought together, then an electrical voltage can develop if one metal is warmer than the other. This effect allows res
Scientific research on the human brain has yielded some very interesting results. According to the world's foremost experts on the subject, they have made significant progress on the road to understanding human memories. Soon, they expect to be abl
- paving the way for organs to be grown in animals for transplant even providing a cure for diabetes
Scientists at the Chinese Academy of Sciences have developed non-blood-absorbing hemostatic gauze after repeated experiments. Compared with traditional medical gauze, this new achievement can diminish blood loss by about 60 percent.
Photons, the elementary particles that make up light, are known to be fast, weightless and to not interact with each other.
According to the National Cancer Institute, one out of two men and one out of three women in the United States will develop cancer in their lifetime. (In other words, about 40 percent of the adult population will receive a cancer diagnosis at some po
In this video, Jason Bermas talks about the latest developments involving quantum computing and how the first silicon based quantum computer has now been announced opening the floodgates on this very new and innovative technology.

Boeing is undeterred by all the buzz around SpaceX and its founder Elon Musk, which launched its Falcon Heavy rocket into history last week.
(Natural News) Most mainstream media outlets have been running articles in recent weeks about the severity of this year's flu season. In fact, USA Today recently reported that the number of people being admitted to hospital for the flu this year ri
Like the horse of Troy, scientists at the Technion have developed a way to sneak synthetic cells right into tumor tissue, where they then begin producing cancer-fighting proteins from the inside. The technique was tested in both cell cultures and in
Earlier this week, the robotics company Boston Dynamics released a clip of their BigDog model--a four-legged, gas-powered, mobile machine--dexterously opening a door for its buddy. In light of the recent Black Mirror episode "Metalhead," which
(Natural News) Dr. Michael Greger remarked in a Daily Mail article that the consumption of wholefood vegetarian diets can reduce the risks of various forms of cancer.
Once firing resumed in January, LPPF Research Physicist Dr. Syed Hassan re-aligned the optical path to our ultra-fast ICCD camera to obtain close-ups of the plasmoids through our large quartz window. Using this new alignment, the team obtained a sequ
Two-photon lithography typically requires a thin glass slide, a lens and an immersion oil to help the laser light focus to a fine point where curing and printing occurs. It differs from other 3D-printing methods in resolution, because it can produce
Elon Musk's SpaceX moved closer to another orbital frontier as regulators advanced its application to launch a low-orbit constellation of satellites and join a jostling field of operators trying to cash in on broadband service from space.
Engineers at Rutgers University-New Brunswick and Oregon State University are developing a new method of processing nanomaterials that could lead to faster and cheaper manufacturing of flexible thin film devices - from touch screens to window coa
