US defense contractor Lockheed Martin has announced it has begun work on developing an unmanned, hypersonic spy plane capable of striking targets at 3,600 mph.
A new species of giant, carnivorous platypus has been discovered in a region of outback Queensland, Australia.
Tracking asteroids and other objects that could kill us, is still largely based on amateur and professional astronomers making chance observations with regular telescopes.
Scientists have discovered a way to combine nanoparticles into composites, using DNA as the paste between them.
A new device combines a microbial fuel cell and photoelectrochemical fuel cell uses nothing but sunlight and waste energy to produce hydrogen gas.
The US Army is calling on private research and development organizations to help it develop suits of armor that give soldiers ‘superhuman strength’ and display an in-helmet HUD showing technical and health information, much like the armor seen used by Tony Stark in Marvel’s Iron Man series.
A new carbon structure has been discovered and it may be the strongest material yet. However, curious properties also give it interesting electronic and energy storage applications.
Researchers have found that by folding paper-based Li-Ion batteries, the energy density of the cells can be increased 14 times.
For the first time, an experimental fusion reactor in the US has broken even, providing more energy than is absorbed by the fuel.
Scientists will soon be able to completely design and print out simple, synthetic lifeforms on Earth using biological 3-d printers, a scientist from the Human Genome Project has claimed.
A ‘forcefield’ technology that uses nothing but sound to create the feeling of interaction with solid objects in thin air has been developed by a team at Bristol University in the UK.
The FDA has approved a new device which will help some sight-impaired people restore part of their vision.
A 10-year, £1 billion (€1.2 billion/$1.6 billion) project to completely revolutionize the way we understand and interpret the human brain began today in Switzerland.
On February 15th 2013, over 1,000 people were injured when a meteor exploded over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk. Scientists are now saying that ‘the odds of asteroid impacts are much higher than people realize.’
