For the first time ever, researchers were able to achieve liquid light at room temperature.
In another step to make the project more open to public, Boeke shared an open discussion will be held this coming May 9-10 in New York. The agenda will include discussing the roadmap of the project including ethical, social and legal engagement.
Protesters gathered to fight alternative facts during Earth's day's March for Science protest. They are lobbying against alternative facts that prevent the communication and dissemination of factual data about the environment.
This type of liquid can move on its own without external help.
The Mission: Impossible-style heist is one of the biggest hauls in the rare books trade ever.
Scientists give humans an advantage in the fight against the increasingly strong superbugs.
Scientists break the world record with a microscopic circular triple helix made from just 200 atoms.
Diamonds come into play to create ultra-thin electrical wires.
Genetic science has reached its peak as modern technology allows for a much faster DNA sequencing. A company called Genos is offering its services to fill in the needs of individuals to have their genes sequenced.
Recent news on material technology shows that diamond may not be the hardest mineral in the world anymore. Lonsdaleite, a hexagonal polymorph of diamond, is reportedly 50 percent harder than diamond. This particular kind of diamond occurs naturally at the very center of meteorite impact sites in the world. However, scientists may have found a method to create this kind of diamond variant inside a laboratory.
One recent interesting find by scientists and archaeologists is the possibility that ancient rats, or marsupials, have lived at the same time as dinosaurs. What makes it more interesting is that the rats, creatures significantly smaller than dinosaurs, may have eaten the said reptiles.
Giraffes are now at risk of extinction as their numbers reportedly dropped by 40 percent in the last 30 years. With all the attention on global warming and climate change, many were surprised to find giraffes slowly disappearing. Scientists believe that if their population declines further, giraffes will be vulnerable to extinction.
A mythical sea blob, which has been first sighted more than a century ago, has finally been discovered by scientists in Monterey Bay. There are archives of recordings from various scientists from the early 1900s who described a tiny, orb-like creature found in the sea that looks similar to a small jellyfish. However, there had been no accompanying specimens for the findings, a reason for scientists to pass it off either as a mythical creature or a creature that has then been extinct.
China has overtaken the U.S. and other European countries as the world's leading economy. Now, it has driven its motivation toward becoming the leader in science and technology. Experts from all over the world have observed and pointed out that there has been a continuous decline in the amount and levels of research for science and technology in Japan, and this may be the reason why China is now in the lead of the race.
Ever wonder why our blood and other liquids in our body do not leak out and leave us all dried up? According to scientists, despite the fact our skin cells die, dry up, and fall off every minute of every day, it does not seem to create holes that would allow liquids inside the body to leak out.
