It's not news that it happens - but it's rather amazing to be able to measure it. The National Institute of Standards and Technology has been able to demonstrate that time passes faster just a foot above the ground.
Science isn't an international language after all, according to a new survey. On the contrary, when people from different cultures read the same article, they can come away with completely different opinions.
Dr. Klaus Schulten of the University of Illinois is tapping GPU-powered computing to increase the speed and accuracy of microscopy-based simulations.
A new computer model has indicated that the parting of the Red Sea could really have taken place - if the winds were right.
Chucking a radio transmitter into the heart of a volcano might seem a pretty fruitless endeavor. But a team at Newcastle University says it's developed a device that can withstand temperatures of up to 900 degrees C and which could provide early warning of an eruption.
In a initiative being compared to the Human Genome Project, neuroscientists are attempting to map all the major circuits in the human brain.
Women have a better understanding of science than men, and are more likely to heed the expert view that man-made global warming is taking place.
Two US teams have developed artificial skins that are sensitive enough to detect the touch of a butterfly.
Australian and British astrophysicists say they have found evidence that the laws of physics are different in different parts of the universe.
Researchers have been playing hide-and-seek with robots to help them develop the ability to deceive.
Star Trek tractor beams have existed for some time, but have only been able to move tiny objects for very short distances.
Ironically, by disputing God, Hawking may get us all killed by God.
Scientists at Sweden's Institute of Technology have developed a nanofluid solution that could eventually be used to cool massive data centers and server farms.
University of Utah scientists have demonstrated that planting microelectrodes on the surface of the brain can allow people to 'speak' with their thoughts.
It's a chicken-and-egg problem that's concerned biologists for decades: how did the basic biochemicals of life appear before the biological catalysts needed to form them had come into existence?
You may not have noticed, but according to an Australian academic, we're currently in the middle of a mass extinction event comparable to that which killed off the dinosaurs.
Theoretical physicist and official World's Cleverest Chap Stephen Hawking says there's no reason to think that God created the universe.
A Stanford mechanical engineer is working on an adhesive based on a gecko's sticky foot which would allow people to climb smooth, vertical surfaces.
It sounds like a contradiction in terms, but British scientists have developed 'dry water', and say it could provide a new way to absorb and store carbon dioxide.
Swedish and Canadian scientists have successfully implanted artificial corneas in patients, with more than half reporting substantially improved vision.
