Researchers at the University of Southampton have taken a significant step in a project to unravel the secrets of the structure of our Universe.
Astronomers using NASA's Swift X-ray Telescope have observed a spinning neutron star suddenly slowing down, yielding clues they can use to understand these extremely dense objects.
Researchers at The Open University (OU) and The University of Manchester have found conclusive proof that Ancient Egyptians used meteorites to make symbolic accessories.
The Mighty Eagle, NASA's robotic prototype lander managed out of the space agency's Marshall Space Flight Center, recently completed a test series to monitor its systems functionality after coming out of winter storage.
So near, and yet so far. That’s probably how the crew over at Mitsubishi felt when the team placed second in the Electric Vehicle category at the 2012 Pikes PeakInternational Hill Climb (PPIHC).
Leading world climate change experts have thrown cold water on the idea that planting trees can offset carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels.
Stanford University scientists have developed an advanced zinc-air battery with higher catalytic activity and durability than similar batteries made with costly platinum and iridium catalysts.
The beautiful, glittering swirl picture belowed is named, rather un-poetically, J125013.50+073441.5.
The widespread disappearance of stromatolites, the earliest visible manifestation of life on Earth, may have been driven by single-celled organisms called foraminifera.
Not so long ago we brought you word of the 3Doodler, a 3D printing pen that allows you to draw simple structures into thin-air.
Lawrence Livermore scientists have discovered and demonstrated a new technique to remove and store atmospheric carbon dioxide while generating carbon-negative hydrogen and producing alkalinity, which can be used to offset ocean acidification.
What may be the ultimate heat sink is only possible because of yet another astounding capability of graphene. The one-atom-thick form of carbon can act as a go-between that allows vertically aligned carbon nanotubes to grow on nearly anything.
There are those times when walking a long distance can be overrated. Public transportation options exist, and you can always take your personal vehicle, but what about if you want to try and get to your destination in a more unique way?
NASA astronaut Karen Nyberg, Russian Federal Space Agency cosmonaut Fyodor Yurchikhin and European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Luca Parmitano joined their Expedition 36 crewmates when the hatches between their Soyuz TMA-09M spacecraft and the International Space Station opened at 12:14 a.m. EDT Wednesday.
Computer simulations of galaxies growing over billions of years have revealed a likely scenario for how they feed: a cosmic version of swirly straws.
NASA and a Texas company are exploring the possibility of using a "3D printer" on deep space missions in a way where the "D" would stand for dining.
With 400 ppm of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, it might be that we have crossed the carbon Rubicon.
A robot in Cornell's Personal Robotics Lab has learned to foresee human action in order to step in and offer a helping hand, or more precisely, roll in and offer a helping claw.
On May 31, 2013, asteroid 1998 QE2 will sail serenely past Earth, getting no closer than about 3.6 million miles (5.8 million kilometers), or about 15 times the distance between Earth and the moon.
Studying complex systems like ecosystems can get messy, especially when trying to predict how they interact with other big unknowns like climate change.
