In the future military bombers won’t have to slow down to subsonic speeds to drop their deadly payloads. Technicians from Boeing Phantom Works and the Air Force Research Lab say they’ve simulated a bomb drop at Mach 2.
Move the electrical cords aside. This year, the 30,000 lights adorning the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree are powered by solar panels atop a nearby building.
Online newsletters and other cyber documents tailored to a specific product or service category may soon become sprinkled with ads powered jointly by Adobe and Yahoo.
Scientists have found economical materials that heal themselves after minor damage, retaining about four-fifths of their original strength. Applications for materials under repeated-stress.
Maryland - Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Joint Quantum Institute in Maryland, have discovered a way to create a donut-shaped Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC) exhibiting properties of persistent gas flow. These could have practical applications in future ultra-tiny, ultra-accurate gyroscopes.
More than $733 million were spent online this past Monday, making it the most successful Cyber Monday on record.
HDNet will air a live Democratic presidential debate this weekend, making it the first channel broadcast exclusively in high definition to do so.
If there was a viable way to dissolve carbon dioxide into water, and then store it in the Earth, would that be a good solution for the man-made greenhouse gas contribution to global warming?
Argonne (IL) - Scientists may have found the solution to long airport screening lines: T-Rays. T-Rays are Terahertz electromagnetic (EM) emissions which harmlessly scan for the same basic things X-Rays are used for today. However, since T-Rays are much of a much lower energy, there are no harmful effects, according to researchers.
Oceanic health through a comprehensive monitoring system is the focus of a recent paper published by a group calling themselves POGO (Partnership for Observation of the Global Oceans). They hope to create a global ocean monitoring system which will continuously give mankind a leg up on safety and prosperity.
A website set up to inform people about the facts of global climate change was recently transformed into a hidden infomercial for online drug stores.

A recent poll has revealed that scientists were more concerned over nanotechnology. Are their concerns justified?
Los Altos (CA) - Rambus will announce on Wednesday a new Terabyte Bandwidth Initiative (TBI) designed to bring terabyte bandwidth to future many-core architectures. The design places 16 DRAM channels, each operating at 16 Gbps with 4 bytes of data per clock. In theory, the total aggregate memory throughput would be 1,024 Gigabytes (1 Terabyte) available via sixteen separate channels, each of which could be piped directly to a group of multiple cores.
