An instrument mounted aboard the International Space Station (ISS) may have detected its first hint of dark matter.
Astronomers from the University of Maryland at College Park (UMCP) and Lowell Observatory have deployed NASA's Swift satellite to explore comet C/2012 S1 (ISON), which may become one of the most dazzling in decades when it rounds the sun later this year.
Physicists believe they can provide secret keys using quantum cryptography via satellite.
There are many challenges to achieving the dreamed-about hydrogen economy, but one of them – the ability to make hydrogen from water cheaply and at scale – could be a little closer to being overcome. If it indeed is, renewable energy could become a whole lot more economical.
Beekeepers and researchers are reporting growing evidence that a powerful new class of pesticides may be killing off bumblebees.
Our very own Milky Way is likely a spiral galaxy. Indeed, our solar system and Earth reside somewhere near one of its filamentous, swept-back arms.
For human civilization to survive, people must have access to the three basics: Food, water and shelter.

The goal of most modular home designs is to assemble whatever you want by connecting prefab modules together like Lego bricks. As sound as that idea is, the folks at D*Haus Company have added a new fold to an old idea, literally.
The Earth is dynamic. Indeed, what we perceive as solid ground beneath our feet is constantly changing.
Infiniti, as previously discussed, introduced the hybrid trim of its QX crossover at this year’s New York Auto Show.
NASA researchers recently traveled to Turrialba Volcano, near San Jose, Costa Rica, to fly a Dragon Eye unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) into the volcano’s sulfur dioxide plume and over its summit crater, to study Turrialba’s chemical environment.
Scientists are currently predicting that rising temperatures will lead to a massive "greening," or increase in plant cover, in the Arctic.
In the aftermath of Sandy, mobile solar power – both on a fairly big scale and the cell-phone charging level – came to the rescue of some powerless residents.
A team of international scientists has managed to successfully replicate the behaviour of a colony of ants on the move with the use of miniature robots.
Researchers at the University of Sheffield have designed a specially-adapted "tactile helmet" to provide fire-fighters operating in challenging conditions with vital clues about their surroundings.
The Universe is a considerably old neighbourhood, weighing in at approximately 13.8 billion years old. Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is also ancient - as some of its stars are more than 13 billion years old.
A majority of the highly energy-efficient homes you see on Earthtechling’s pages cost more to build than the average new US home.
