Aquaponic garden systems use fish feces as natural fertilizers. In return, the plants grow faster and naturally filter the water before returning it to the fish. This system ensures environmental sustainability.
Researchers at Stanford, University of Michigan and Woods Hole recently developed digital tags for recording behavior of invertebrates. Before this, a full range of recordings of in-water creatures was only available for large mammals.
University of Alaska Fairbanks researchers recently developed a computer program that estimates the impact climate change could have on the Antarctic ice sheet.
Two Iceland brothers have developed a powerful, lightweight wind turbine that's versatile and powerful enough to charge cell phones, power a TV and small appliances and even charge electric cars.
New eco-friendly construction materials called BioSIPs were developed by a University of Colorado Denver professor and former graduate student. The two were recently awarded a patent for their design.
Replacing old or damaged natural gas pipelines can greatly reduce methane emissions and related injuries. A Stanford-led study found that cities such as Durham and Cincinnati are already benefiting from such projects.
Rice University researchers recently developed solar water-splitting technology that produces a clean, renewable energy source, through processes of splitting water.
This is how far science has come: There are 3D-printed micro-robots of fish swimming around, powered by hydrogen peroxide. Researchers think they will inspire “smart” microrobots with the ability to detox, sense, and direct drug delivery.
Thousands of stone tools from the early Upper Paleolithic were recently unearthed from a cave in Jordan, and now they are shedding light on the dawn of the division of labor among early humans.
Squid are known as masters of disguise, and now their unique abilities are inspiring new camouflaging materials, according to a recent study.
The Bronze Age was a significant era in Earth's early history, but how did it change Europe? New DNA analyses from the bones of early Europeans have attempted to answer just that question, showing that the demographic structure of present-day Europe and Asia is the result of widespread population migrations, and subsequent cultural changes that occurred during the Bronze Age.
Spider silk may be delicate looking, but it is known for its strength and durability. And it's these stunning properties that have inspired researchers at Polytechnique Montreal to channel their inner Spiderman and create a new, ultra-tough fiber.
Jupiter's moon Europa has in recent years given scientists hope that it harbors conditions suitable for life, so in a bid to explore this possibility further, on Tuesday, NASA chose nine high-tech instruments for a mission to search for life on this mysterious icy world.
Stone tools recently discovered in the desert badlands of northwestern Kenya are the oldest yet discovered, dating back 3.3 million years, and now they are challenging our long-held notion of early human history.
