Drawing inspiration from a popular children's toy, researchers from Sandia National Laboratories have developed a new way to increase the electrical conductivity of metal-organic framework materials (MOFs).
French scientists have uncovered a new way to produce large amounts of hydrogen that could one day give way to cheaper production of the clean fuel source.
Graphene, whose title as world's strongest and thinnest material has made it the darling of the science world, could be closer to commercial production thanks to a new study outlining a new recipe for a new graphene substrate.
Early universe might not be as dusty as previously believed, according to astronomers. The latest finding could mean that current theories on Universe formation need to be re-assessed.
Type E botulism has been linked with the death of at least 200-300 common loons in the eastern basin of Lake Ontario, according to The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).
The discovery of a fossilized wasp species with an appendage remarkably similar to that of more recent wasps known for laying eggs in figs has puzzled researchers because figs did not come to exist until 65 million years after the fossilized wasp was alive.
An analysis of a partial skeleton dating back some 1.34 million years suggests at least one ancient hominin retained the ability to climb millions of years after our ancestors are believed to have taken to the ground.
Researchers have learned that tiny fruit flies will actively lay their eggs on citrus fruits because parasitic wasps that feed on fruit fly larva are repelled by the smell.
The magnitude 9.0 earthquake that unleashed the devastating 2011 tsunami in Japan was triggered by the largest fault slip ever recorded, the journal Science reported Thursday.
A 400,000-year-old DNA sample taken from a cave in northern Spain muddies science's ideas on the origins of humanity, introducing an entirely new set of problems and questions.
For many millennia, we humans have considered ourselves superior, primarily due to our large brains and our ability to reason. However, we might not be as smart as we think. Researchers from Australia point out that there are different kinds of geniuses out there, some even better than us.
Scientists from the University of Southampton claim to have found a possible solution to the ever-increasing threat of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere: store it in particular locations far beneath the ocean.
Neanderthals weren't the dumb cousins of Homo sapiens, but were in fact highly organized species who knew how to organize their living spaces, just like modern humans, a new study suggests.
Sahara- the world's largest tropical desert- might not look like a cozy place for many, but it is home to some rare creatures that have evolved to live in the arid landscape. A recent study has found that wildlife population in this barren land is disappearing rapidly.
