A recent study suggests that we are able to "coax" living cells into carbon-silicon bonds. This is the first time that we have seen that we can actually incorporate silicon, one of the most abundant elements on Earth, into the building blocks of living organisms.
Animal conservationists around the globe are lauding the efforts of Kyrgyzstan President Almazbek Atambayev to save the snow leopards dwelling in the mountainous regions of the former Soviet-controlled nation.
Five expatriates had died from severe asthma attacks as torrential rains hit Kuwait last Friday. The phenomenon is said to be similar to the one that killed eight people in Australia a few days ago.
Blue clouds, also known as night-shining clouds or Noctilucent clouds, are a normal occurrence that happens during late November or early December, particularly in Antarctica. Yet, surprisingly, the appearance of these blue clouds came a bit early. According to NASA, this is a new phenomenon.
New research suggests that the Sahara desert used to be moist and green before it has turned into one of the largest deserts on Earth. An analysis and simulation of weather patterns have indicated that a majority of the Sahara Desert has experienced very heavy and continuous rains more than a thousand years ago.
Researchers may have found that contamination and pollution of surface water have been ongoing for the last seven thousand years. With ongoing societal and environmental issues on the rise, scientists are finding the best solution to the problems regarding pollution and climate change. What is interesting about this is that industry-caused pollution has been existing for more than thousands of years.
Actions against climate change have been aggressive since the Paris Climate Change Agreement, and it has been reported that four of the biggest cities in the world would be banning diesel vehicles by 2025. These four include Paris, Mexico, Madrid, and Athens. Experts have claimed that it is one of the actions of major world leaders to improve air quality in their countries.
Researchers from the University of Chicago and Argonne National Laboratory predict that though storms in the U.S. will be more powerful, they will have a smaller radius.
The Bank of England has announced that it will be changing its polymer notes and is working on potential solutions after upsetting Vegans, vegetarians, and other animal advocates over their animal-fat-infused £5 bank note.
Bernie Sanders responded to House Science Committee's tweet about misleading article.
Engineers from the University of New South Wales have managed to add to the growing benefits of using perovskite solar cells. Aside from being flexible, easily manufactured and cheap, they have now broke a world efficiency record.
Pope Francis urged world leaders to push for the Paris Climate Change Pact, a plea that defies U.S. President-elect Donald Trump’s call to end the battle of the U.S. against climate change.
NASA's Earth science division is hanging on a balance as President-elect Donald Trump released a statement that budgeting for climate change funding, NASA, and other science organizations would be cut down to a significantly low workable amount. With the Earth science program aimed to advance and develop further understanding of the Earth's systems and its changes, what will happen if NASA Earth science does shut down?
New regulations on oil drilling in different parts of Oklahoma have reportedly significantly reduced the frequency of quakes and tremors in the state. This seems to prove that thousands of tremor "swarms" or quakes experienced in different areas, having magnitudes as high as 5.0, are actually man-made.
India just launched the world's largest solar power farm, a 2,500-acre facility in Kamuthi, which has a capacity of 648 megawatts and could power up as much as 150,000 homes. With the Paris Climate Change agreement and the decision of the majority of powerful nations to completely eradicate reliance upon coal, renewable energy such as solar power becomes high in demand.
