A potentially game-changing breakthrough in artificial photosynthesis may be able to solve the world's carbon emission problem, according to new research.
According to researchers, the Universe should be brighter than it actually is, and now they are just beginning the figure out why that's not the case.
For the first time ever, researchers have managed to capture on camera light behaving as both a particle and a wave, a new study describes.
Scientists have discovered a monstrous black hole about 13 billion light-years away from Earth, and it is the largest they have ever seen, a new study says.
When we think of skin cancer, sunlight usually comes to mind. But an interesting new study reveals that skin damage is possible even in the dark, leaving no place safe.
New technology involved in creating Christopher Nolan's epic Interstellar is shedding light on the powerful effects of real life black holes and paving the way for astrophysics research, a new study explains.
The oldest stars in the sky aren't so old after all. They actually lit up the Universe more than 100 million years later than scientists previously thought, according to a new study.
For the first time ever, scientists have slowed down the speed of light as it travels through free space, helping them to better understand the properties of light, a new study says.
A newly developed laser the size of a grain of rice could lead the way to advances in quantum computing, new research says.
The holidays this time of year always seems to make night a little brighter. Now NASA and the NOAA have released evidence that during December, cities especially in the United States shine up to a whopping 50 percent brighter - a change best seen from space.
Fireflies are known for their luminescent nighttime glow, but how does this phenomenon work? Scientists from Switzerland and Taiwan set out to unravel the mystery.
We all know how color works. Different pigments reflect different frequencies of light, meaning the color our eyes see is essentially the "reject" light. However, blue pigment is rare in nature, and difficult to craft even in this modern age. So how does the blue jay do it? New research has revealed that the bird doesn't rely on pigmentation alone, exposing a unique way to express color.
A number of holidays are nearly upon us, and you neighborhood is likely looking a lot brighter at night. Little did you know that up above, the Universe has brightened as well. That's because a pair of Galaxies about 130 million light years away just had a get-together, producing some of the most concentrated super-bright X-ray light emissions ever seen.
Plants, which rely on photosynthesis for their survival, have learned to depend on a key protein to efficiently harvest energy in a world where light is constantly fluctuating, according to new research.
