A new research reveals that the frequency of mothers opting for Caesarean births could greatly impact human evolution, resulting to narrow pelvis and bigger babies.
A new study from the University of Pennsylvania reveals that tails of four-limbed animals and fish evolved separately and are two different structures. The new study breaks the long-held recapitulation theory.
A team of engineers from UC Berkeley has built a tiny robot with the highest recorded robotic vertical jumping agility. The new technology could aid in rescue and search operations during disasters in urban areas.
Ever wondered how fog can be turned into clean water? A new initiative in Coastal Peru is transforming this idea into reality through a new creation called "fog catcher," which will be installed in far-flung areas of Lima, Peru, enabling poverty-stricken locals to have access to clean water.
Decades after Queen Nefertari's, spouse of Pharaoh Ramses II, royal tomb was discovered in 1904 in Egypt's Valley of the Queens, scientists have finally identified that one of the remains found in the tomb, a pair of legs, belonged to the queen herself.
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.
Is there life on Pluto? A new study says that Pluto's icy heart, Sputnik Planitia, could have a subsurface ocean beneath it that may be hiding alien life forms.
The road to making three-parent IVF is bumpy but shows progress. Recently, a new study shows the amount of risk couples face when embarking on this controversial process of conception.
A team of scientists from Johns Hopkins Medicine and the University of Texas Austin has determined that Lucy, the 3-million-year-old human ancestor discovered 42 years ago, was mostly a tree climber rather than a ground walker.
With the goal of India to replace coal with cheaper solar power by 2020, the South Asian country has recently unveiled the world's largest solar power plant, making it the world's third largest solar power market next year.
A new research has revealed that astronauts who stay for long periods of time in space suffer from a strange eye condition: deformed eyeballs. This mysterious condition could be detrimental to future space exploration.
Do "aliens" exist on Earth? In a way, experts think so, and they believe that these creatures can be found thriving in massive underground oceans hidden hundreds of miles beneath the Earth's surface.
An international team from Monash University in Australia has discovered how sand "holds its breath." The researchers revealed how diatoms in the sand survive in different environmental conditions, revealing its potential use in the biofuel industry.
A team of researchers from Technion - Israel Institute of Technology has created laser emissions from the interaction of light and water waves, calling it "water-wave laser." The new laser could prove useful in tiny sensors used for testing new drug therapies.
Is the U.S. ready for a full-blown war in space? Experts say that the US Military considers the prospect and is gearing up for a potential space warfare by developing weapons that could only exist in science fiction dreams.
