Buffalo is a pretty cold place this time of year, but that's not the case for the city's facilities of CUBRC Inc, where engineers are testing the heat resistant materials that will make up the base of NASA's new flagship rocket, the Space Launch System (SLS).
Understanding salmon and other fish migrations has always been very important to conservationists, especially for species whose treks may be made harder by hydroelectric dams. Now a new tiny and injectable device may help experts better understand how these dams stress these fish, providing data that could lead to more fish-friendly systems in the near-future.
A racehorse recently got a new lease on life thanks to the first ever bone repair technology, developed by a group of Irish scientists at Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research (AMBER).
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 robot walks and flies like a vampire bat, adept on both land and in the air, making this new animal-inspired technology advantageous for certain multi-terrain missions in the future.
Metal materials now have the potential to be water-repellent thanks to new laser technology developed by scientists at the University of Rochester, new research describes.
Micromachine medicine recently saw a small victory after a lab mouse's body was successfully navigated by a tiny team of microscopic motors. The machines in question delivered a small test cargo of gold nanoparticles into the lining of the subject's stomach, proving that these advanced medicinal delivery systems are very possible.
A newly developed laser the size of a grain of rice could lead the way to advances in quantum computing, new research says.
Your phone doesn't just make calls, text and contain your personal contacts, but it also houses lots of bacteria, according to a new study.
Students at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich recently rolled out a highly maneuverable aquatic robot that they claim is the "only four finned cuttlefish robot in the world." And while that may seem like a pretty strange thing to boast, the cuttlefish is an incredible animal, and has been inspiring the technological world for some time.
Space Exploration Technologies' (SpaceX) sixth mission to the International Space Station (ISS) was quite a success, marking the private company's fifth official resupply mission under NASA contract with their unmanned Dragon cargo module and Falcon 9 rocket. However, this mission also marked a first attempt at using one of the company's partially-reusable rockets, and that didn't go as well as intended.
Astronomers are aiming to sort and archive all the stars in our galaxy - a task they hope will help them better understand the nature of stars, their distribution, and how galaxies are formed. However, it has been estimated that the Milky Way boasts between 200 and 400 billion stars. So who can help astronomers with this incredible workload? Learning machines, of course!
Vietnam has recently suffered a number of internet cable system breaks and undersea ruptures, and as a result, network slowdowns and blackouts have plagued the country in recent months. However, while citizens are chalking these failures up to government ineptitude, some experts are saying this is actually the result of a natural disaster - driven by confused and curious sharks.
Students in the United Kingdom are determined to take some of the cutting edge software and tech of this modern age and reapply to a very unlikely initiative - the conservation of our planet's most threatened species. Drones and space-faring tech, they say, could be keeping our animals safe, and people too.
We've already seen volcano diving daredevils, go-pros and drones, but what about robots which can get the job done all the time? Researchers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) are working to make this a reality, potentially opening up new opportunities for otherwise risky geological research.
