When it comes to healing traumatic wounds of war, success may hinge on the first blood clot – the one that begins forming on the battlefield right after an injury.
Researchers at Duke University have managed to develop an experimental prototype that allows rats to "touch" invisible infrared light.
Researchers at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock claim that Microsoft's Kinect game controller could cut the US healthcare bill by up to $30 billion - by allowing physicians and other medics to remotely interact with patients.
I love eating bacon, but hate making it. Not only does that smell seem to permeate every inch of the house for hours after, but there’s always the question of what to do with the leftover grease.
A laser device originally designed to measure carbon on Mars could soon be used here on Earth to root out counterfeit foods, making sure that honey, olive oil and chocolate are what they claim.
Deforestation and slash-and-burn farming are destroying lands that have belonged to indigenous tribes for centuries. These people have lived among the trees and wildlife in harmony, treating each plant and creature as a sacred gift.
A team of Innsbruck University physicists have managed to directly transfer the quantum information stored in an atom onto a particle of light - theoretically allowing data to be sent over optical fiber to a distant atom.
Cornell University researchers have successfully simulated 25,000 generations of evolution in an effort to determine why biological networks tend to be organized as modules.
Scientists at Arizona State University (ASU) say they are closer to understanding what makes the fiber that spiders spin – weight for weight - at least five times as strong as piano wire.
The connection between poor sleep, memory loss and brain deterioration as humans age has been somewhat of an elusive study over the years.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have managed to develop elastic, self-healing wires in which both the liquid-metal core and the polymer sheath reconnect at the molecular level after being severed.
For the last decade, theoretical physicists have hypothesized that the intense connections generated between particles as established in the quantum law of "entanglement" may hold the key to eventual teleportation of quantum information.
Researchers at Charles University in the Czech Republic have determined that a person’s eye color may influence how trustworthy we think they are.
An international team of scientists has designed a multi-component molecular motor that can be moved clockwise and counterclockwise.
The private space company Mars One has issued the requirements for its astronaut selection program, a mission that seeks to establish the first human population on Mars in 2023.
The reason why we get wrinkled fingers and toes after spending too long in the bath may be down to our ancestors.
Scientists have engineered bacteria to make the precursor chemicals for fossil fuels and plastics, a breakthrough for the chemical industry.
Some feathered dinosaurs may have used their tail feathers in a similar way to today’s turkeys and peacocks, in displays to attract a mate.
It sounds like a contradiction in terms but scientists have reached temperatures that go beyond absolute zero in a lab, and get hotter as they do so.
The wind power industry wasn’t the only renewable energy winner in the fiscal cliff deal that cleared Congress earlier this week – the legislation also showered taxpayer largess on the producers of various categories of biofuels.
