CERN just discovered two new particles that scientists thought were the stuff of myth. But in a new breakthrough study, they can now prove that their predictions were correct.
NASA has released an ultra-high resolution video from their computer models that can give us a stunning view of how carbon dioxide travels and builds over the course of a year.
Protected areas and the conservation of ecology has been the hot topic at this year's World Parks Congress in Sydney, Australia. Now NASA and the Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) has announced the publication of Sanctuary, a short book of stunning pictures that can help us understand how satellites and aerial surveillance are keeping our most valuable ecosystems safe.
Imagine a drone that not only boasts a light and sturdy frame for cameras and other equipment, but also one that can disappear in a matter of hours if it happens to crash. This could be a boon both for military officials and conservationists alike who don't want to leave their mark on the environment.
For the first time, twisted light waves traveled over a large distance outdoors, passing above Vienna rooftops and seemingly clearing the way for advancements in data communication, new research shows.
The face of search and rescue, traditionally characterized by brave men and women and your occasional St. Bernard, just got a bit uglier. That's because researchers have created cyborg cockroaches that are capable of homing in on the sound of distressed disaster victims in tight spaces.
Young salmon have a lot to deal with after first being brought into the world. Leaving the safety of their spawning pools, these fish have to dodge predatory birds, bears, sea lions, and even the dangerous turbines of hydroelectric dams during their trek to the ocean. Now researchers have fashioned a new sensor that could help them determine how to make that last part a bit easier.
This past Halloween, Oct. 31, space-faring private company Virgin Galactic suffered a major tragedy, with the fourth powered test flight of SpaceShipTwo resulting in destruction and death. Now, investigators say they will soon be wrapping up the on-site investigation, having found some startling evidence about what may have occurred.
Researchers have somehow managed to replicate the natural ebb and flow of the tide with a few tools from their local home improvement shop.
This past Halloween, Oct. 31, space faring private company Virgin Galactic suffered a major tragedy, with the fourth powered test flight of SpaceShipTwo resulting in destruction and death. Now, as of today, an ongoing investigation has revealed new information about the disaster.
The first ever DNA-based electrical circuit may soon be more than just an intangible idea, as new breakthrough research in DNA molecules has the potential to make this dream a reality.
An unmanned rocket bound for the International Space Station (ISS) exploded immediately after falling from the air above NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Tuesday evening. Now reports are coming out on what exactly was lost in that "catastrophic failure."
An unmanned rocket bound for the International Space Station (ISS) exploded immediately after falling from the air above NASA's Wallops Flight Facility on Tuesday evening, suffering from a "vehicle anomaly" that led to "catastrophic failure."
The third phase of China's lunar exploration program successfully lifted off on Thursday, marking the beginning of the country's first partly-privatized mission into the Moon's orbit.
The boosters are the pride and flair of any rocket. Without these powerful and fiery plumes, a rocket is nothing more than a tall hunk of metal, fuel, and wasted engineering. However, once their job is finished, boosters become a massive burden that an ascending rocket needs to quickly shed.
