A team of researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has created a new artificial muscles or materials that contracts and expands like muscles fibers, using cheap and readily accessible materials.
A man dies inside one of Yellowstone Park's hot springs as he falls into the pool while trying to "check the temperature" of the water. According to his sister, he was trying to check the thermal pool's temperature because he wishes to "hot pot" or soak in it.
Research by a team from the University of Exeter in the U.K. found the science explaining early spring--and it's not as desirable as you think.
A suspicious number of young starlings have drowned recently in Europe. While researchers are still unsure why groups of juvenile birds have been drowning, they believe they have some ways to help the inexperienced wild animals access water safely.
Americans have depended on groundhogs for tips on when spring will arrive for over two centuries; now scientists say they can do better with new modeling software. Here's their prediction for the coming year.
The response of leaf unfolding to climate warming has significantly reduced, according to a new study. This can help researchers assess future carbon uptake and spring frost damage.
Researchers from Dartmouth College studied Arctic mosquitoes in western Greenland in order to better understand the impact climate change has on their growth, development and ability to escape predation.
Massive bird invasions taking place across the United States and Canada, a phenomenon that has long puzzled scientists and birdwatchers alike, is reportedly linked to climate shifts, new research indicates.
Spring officially started last Friday evening, even if a good majority of folks in the north were still seeing snow on the ground and ice on the roads. And while these last legs of chilly weather may seem to indicate that spring has been pushed back, the reality is that the season is actually shortening, with summer expected to come earlier than ever before this year.
Every year, as temperatures warm and the winter snows melt away, forests on the East Coast become a sea of green, just to morph into a display of reds, oranges and greens the following autumn. Over the last two decades, this cycle has gone slightly askew, as a result of climate change, cultivating earlier springs and later autumns.
