Researchers from Oxford University just successfully tested their own self-driving car on U.K. highways. Very similar to Google’s cars, the 'Robotcar' can brake, accelerate and navigate on familiar roads with accurate precision.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world's largest particle accelerator, has shut down for a two year period for maintenance and upgrades designed to restore it to peak efficiency.
NASA will broadcast live footage and commentary on the asteroid that will fly close to Earth tomorrow (Friday), documenting its passage by the planet.
Things like cyborgs and bionics have long been the staple of science fiction, but as with all things in our technological world, it was only a matter of time before the science of bionics went from the pages of a science fiction paperback and into our everyday world.
Deep beneath the antarctic ice, scientists have discovered life in lakes sealed off from the world for millions of years. This discovery is monumental, and has important implications for astrobiology
Chinese scientists have built and tested a British inventor’s design of a new type of space propulsion drive. Once scoffed as an impossible device by his British counterparts, China says that it not only works but it will change the satellite industry in a positive way.
Scientists from around the world have determined the most accurate date for the extinction of dinosaurs, which supports the theory that they were wiped out by a comet or asteroid.
NASA has turned on the drill of the Curiosity rover on Martian soil for the first time, marking the latest stage in the exploration and analysis of the Red Planet.
For the first time ever an actual device was powered by the ear itself, although it was the ear of a guinea pig. Scientists are saying that they have found a way to tap into the body’s own electrical energy to power small devices!
It seems North Korea’s latest propaganda video showing the United States in flames used images from Modern Warfare 3. This came soon after North Korea’s announcement that they would be detonating a nuclear bomb.
The Herschel Space Telescope, operated by the European Space Agency (ESA), has identified a star presumed to be too old to create new planets, but which appears to be doing just that.
NASA has announced the second International Space Apps Challenge, which tasks developers with coming up with mobile applications, software, hardware, data visualisation and platform solutions that contribute to space exploration or improve life on Earth.
We've all seen the streaks of light in Star Wars that have become an iconic visualization of what faster than light travel would look like, but alas, science has stepped in to show us what it would actually look like.
We might have survived the Mayan apocalypse, but doomsayers will have plenty more to talk about, thanks to a whopping 900-foot wide asteroid that will skirt close to the Earth tonight and may crash directly into the planet in 2036.
NASA researchers analysing a small meteorite believed to have come from the surface of Mars have found a substantial amount of water, providing yet another inkling into the geology of the nearby planet.
Most of the world uses the Metric system (or SI), with one of the few exceptions being the United States. The SI system of units is logical, simple to understand and international, making it quite confusing why the US hasn't adopted it. Many critics of the US system however, fail to see some very fundamental
When it comes to science there is no getting around the fact that it was a pretty spectacular year. From the fantastic landing of the Mars Curiosity Rover to the announcement of the discovery of the long-anticipated Higgs boson it seemed that every day was bringing science geeks something new to be excited about. Will
A Canada-based technology company called UrtheCast will soon be providing near-live HD video of Earth from space. The video will come from 2 cameras mounted on the Russian side of the International Space Station.
China has officially opened up their domestic satellite navigation network, called 'Beidou', for public use in the Asian-Pacific region. Russia, the E.U. and the U.K. are also working on even larger GPS projects of their own.
A team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has discovered the first evidence of the Quantum Spin Liquid magnetic state within Herbertsmithite minerals.
