A new ceramic coating around nuclear fuel rods may prevent the chemical reaction that caused a build-up of hydrogen in the Fukushima nuclear reactor and later led to an explosion and spreading of nuclear material.
A pair of security experts have demonstrated that by using a laptop, an old game controller and some software, it’s possible to tap into the onboard computer chip in some modern cars and take control of them.
The Indian army spent roughly six months watching and documenting what they thought were two Chinese spy drones, but were actually the planets Jupiter and Venus.
Centaurs are small celestial bodies found between the orbits of Jupiter and Neptune. Their true nature has been a great mystery to astrophysicists, but NASA’s WISE may finally have determined that they are comets.
A Martian mystery may have been solved after energy beams were used to prove that the age of a Martian meteorites is actually 4 billion years younger than previously assumed.
The Blackbody force is a newly discovered force that attracts atoms and molecules to hot, opaque objects emitting blackbody radiation. Under certain circumstances, the new force is stronger than gravity.
Scientists have managed to find a way to activate head regeneration in a species of flatworm that usually has no regenerative abilities.
Images taken last Thursday by both Cassini spacecraft have been successfully received, and processed. On Monday, NASA released the anticipated shot of Earth, which was taken from 898 million miles away, right next to Saturn.
While the generally accepted driving force behind evolution is survival of the fittest genes, new research shows that some mutations may survive because they hitchhike on the success of others.
A new report suggests global warming that occurred 5 million years ago may have melted the antarctic ice caps and led to a 20 meter rise in global sea levels.
With a little help from Dr. Browning Vogel of Stanford University, MyDeals has come up with some very interesting images which show what one part of Washington DC would look like if we could see WiFi signals with the naked eye.
Members of the US congress have introduced a bill that hopes to turn part of the moon into a natural park to preserve it for the future.
One day the sun will die. When that happens, it’ll be quite a dramatic sight to see. Thanks to the Hubble Space Telescope we have a picture of what that might look like.
At the end of the last ice age, part of the Pacific ocean suddenly saw a burst of biological activity. Strangely, and as suddenly as it started, the activity suddenly stopped just a few hundred years later. Now scientists know why.
NASA often interprets patterns in debris disks around new stars as a sign that the star system may have planets. A new study finds this might not always be the case.
The space-mining start-up Planetary Resources has managed to raise $1.5 million, which it intends to use to build a space telescope.
New research from a team of scientists identifies methods of regulating stem cell niches, leading to possible future advancements in stem cell research.
One curious idea to solve the world’s energy problems involves using kites, which may harness winds turbines cannot reach.
A Canadian built human-powered helicopter becomes the first machine to ever win the 33-year old Sikorsky engineering prize.
A new study has found that air-pollution may be the actual cause of death for as many as 2 million people worldwide each year.
