It seems that champagne isn't just for celebratory toasts, but is also important when it comes to the world's future energy needs. The mechanics behind uncorking a bottle of champagne may hold the key to developing more efficient energy-producing plants, according to new research.
Seaweed may be the root of the damaging algae bloom problem happening in some states, but scientists are realizing its untapped potential as a source of food and fuel for the future, new research describes.
Scientists at the University of California (UC), Santa Cruz have developed a tracking collar that can measure the power of a mountain lion's pounce in order to learn more about the cat's hunting strategy.
Located in the heart of the Sun, physicists have for the first time directly detected neutrinos, revealing a little about our closest star and the sources of its energy, a new study describes.
Motherhood is exhausting work, and none know this better than sea otter moms, whose exhaustive efforts can at times prove fatal.
Toyota Motor Corp. unveiled Monday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas plans for a fuel cell car adapter capable of powering homes, according to a Los Angeles Times report.
Scientists may have figured out a way to harness solar power even at night, according to a study published in the journal Nature Chemistry.
Scientists may have hit the jackpot on creating a constant source of solar energy, solving a great energy riddle. To date, solar energy has not been seen as a totally viable energy source because the Sun is not always shining. In spite of this, researchers may have found a way to store solar energy, one of the major challenges in creating renewable solar fuels.
Engineers at Oregon State University have made a breakthrough in the performance of microbial fuel cells that can produce electricity directly from wastewater, opening the door to a future in which waste treatment plants not only will power themselves, but will sell excess electricity.
