US residents who believe in the scientific consensus on global warming are more likely to support government action to curb emissions, regardless of whether they are Republican or Democrat.
Movement of the ring-like molecule pyrrole over a metal surface runs counter to the centuries-old laws of 'classical' physics that govern our everyday world.
A concept vehicle, the so-called “Wild Rubis” is a mid-sized crossover that looks to take on rivals like the Audi Q5 andBMW X5.
The concept of the flying robot has rarely had positive connotations. Usually the very mention of the words “flying robot” or “drone” leads to talk about government intrusion or terrifying, secret high-tech warfare. Rarely does it conjure images of benign uses (or even mechanical best friends).
A University of Washington astronomer is using Earth's interstellar neighbors to learn the nature of certain stars too far away to be directly measured or observed, and the planets they may host.
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have discovered a low-cost, stable, effective catalyst that could replace costly platinum in the production of hydrogen.
The Universe is rarely static, although the timescales involved can be very long indeed. Since modern astronomical observations began we have been observing the birthplaces of new stars and planets, searching for and studying the subtle changes that help us to figure out what is happening within.
240 million Chinese born in the 1980s, known as the “Bālínghòu,” are a tempting audience for an automotive company to target, especially with a green vehicle design idea. Nissan has done just this, showcasing in Shanghai recently its Friend-Me concept hybrid.
When galaxies form new stars, they sometimes do so in frantic episodes of activity known as starbursts. These events were commonplace in the early Universe, but are rarer in nearby galaxies.
Determined to make their mark in any way possible, sustainability advocates have taken to the internet. No longer satisfied with .com and .org, a company called DotGreen Community, Inc. has been pushing for a new web address extension: .green.
There is currently a global effort to reduce dependence on fossil fuels and foreign oil, particularly in the United States and European Union.
Resistive memory cells (ReRAM) are regarded as a potential, yet promising platform for future generations of computer memories.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft recently managed to provide the first direct evidence of small meteoroids breaking into streams of rubble and crashing into Saturn's rings.
Volkswagen, at the recent Detroit Auto Show, showcased a mid-sized SUV hybrid concept known as the CrossBlue.
An international research team led by astronomers from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy recently used a collection of large radio and optical telescopes to investigate a pulsar and its white dwarf companion.
After years of speculation, researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have managed to demonstrate how trees help create one of society's predominant environmental and health concerns: air pollution.
General Motors continues to tinker with its green car strategy on a global level. Whether its the Chevy Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel, Chevy Volt, Chevy Spark EV or Cadillac ELR, the American automaker is throwing its creativity at a variety of ideas to see what will be a hit with drivers.
GM has some good news to share today around its upcoming Spark EV, wich will go on sale this summer in California and Oregon around $25,000 after tax incentives.
Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have managed to design a low-cost, long-life battery that could enable solar and wind energy to become major suppliers to the electrical grid.
Astronomers have discovered a galaxy transforming gas into stars with almost 100 percent efficiency - a rare phase of galaxy evolution that is the most extreme yet observed.
