A team of scientists from the US Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the California Institute of Technology has successfully devised a new method to convert water and sunshine into usable "solar" fuel.
Scientists have finally created a reprintable paper that when used with a special ink can be reused for more than 80 times.
There's a new way of printing that can cut back on the massive environmental impact of paper production.
Scientists who have been researching gene-editing may be disappointed in the eve of the new administration. A last-minute proposal will be addressing CRISPR and other cutting-edge technologies in the field of medicine.
It appears science is just about to get weirder. It seems tiny brains grown in dishes can reveal the secrets of why we are social. "Balls" of brain tissue generated from stem cells are enabling scientists to interpret the differences between people who struggle to be sociable and those who have difficulty joining others.
New data supports controversial NOAA study that said the climate change slowdown doesn't exist.
The idea of the self, or self-awareness and the idea to understand and explain oneself, is the one big divide between AI and human intelligence. While we as humans have a lot of information to still understand, we can offer up a reasoning for ourselves in a lot of cases.
Researchers have been studying the nature of life on Earth and the role of biodiversity. Given the current state of slow biodiversity loss as a variety of species populations are gradually diminishing toward the poles, scientists from the University of Chicago, University of California, Berkeley, and University of California, San Diego try to reconcile two competing ideas that explain this phenomenon in their study published in The American Naturalist.
It seems smart really is the new sexy -- partly. It appears stimulating the brain can drastically affect sex drives. A new study suggests that a right nudge to the brain can be turned up or down with a new brain stimulation sex drive device.
A company aims to release "workplace" versions of its hallmark modular exoskeleton. The armor can reduce muscle force needed for hard labor by 2.5 times, with a medical version to be available in 2018.
Babies conceived during the cold wintry months have more chances of developing autism and other conditions compared with those conceived in summer, according to a new study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology.
Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have created new solar cells from Perovskite. This presents a cheaper, much efficient way of making solar cells to fully utilize the Earth's solar potential.
In an interesting experiment on frogs, scientists at the University of California, Santa Barbara found that the craving of amphibians to escape from very hot water goes down drastically when the temperature of the water rises at a moderate pace, according to a recent report published in ScienceDaily. The same is the response of animals and humans to temperature and is equally impacted by the rate at which the temperature rises. However, the exact process has not yet been understood.
Some damages cannot be undone, and the planet just recorded one of them. This month, Earth officially recorded its atmospheric carbon dioxide moving beyond the 400 parts per million (ppm) mark – permanently.
California has had a severely dry last few years – and this could be the “new norm” for centuries. This extended drought is linked with the changes in the sea surface temperature of the Pacific Ocean, according to a study led by University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) professor Glen MacDonald.
