A team of researchers from Harvard announced that they have lost the only known sample of metallic hydrogen on Earth.
Made of nanomaterials, metalenses is a lightweight material that can serve as a potential replacement to current lenses that are available in the market. If used, the nanomaterial could result to thinner, less bulky glasses.
Creating brain implants that could restore human senses has been problematic ever since the conception of the idea. But now, a team of scientists may have found a way to bypass this problem -- at least when it comes to sight.
Improved technique can get them to pick up sounds as quiet as a whisper.
A soft, rubber-like robot powered by farts? It's all real! A team of Harvard scientists has created the first ever octobot, a squishy autonomous robot that's powered by gas under pressure such as hydrogen peroxide.
A new Harvard Medical School study suggests that eating one ounce of tree nuts four to five times a week can lessen mortality risk of prostate cancer by 34 percent.
Researchers from Harvard University has successfully developed an artificial photosynthesis system that can convert solar energy into biomass more efficiently than the fastest-growing plants.
Chitons, a type of marine mollusk, have a multitude of eyes in their hard, horned shells. Basically, they're seeing as well as protecting themselves with a tough exterior. If they see predators, they can latch tight to the surface below them. Researchers think this could help in certain materials designs.
Harvard researchers examined how downstream effects of flooding for hydroelectric development would affect local communities in this area. They found that increased toxins could devastate food supplies.
Deep in their mud mounds, termites are doing mysterious things regarding temperature change.
A new robot, 3D printed in one printing session, uses a unique design modeled on nature to layer from a stiff core to soft outsides. It is touchable and durable.
Young children who were breastfed as infants are smarter and performed higher on intelligence tests than their formula-fed counterparts, and the longer and more exclusively they were breastfed, the greater the difference, Harvard University researchers said.
Cancer is threatening to overwhelm Latin American countries, according to report published in the Lancet Oncology by researchers at the Harvard Medical School in Boston.
