New study suggests that the dark streak in the slope Mars is mostly likely to be caused by sediments being flung through the air due to boiling water.
The recent discovery of a terrestrial clone of Mars on our planet Earth might be the start of plenty of new research on the Red Planet, and for a lesser cost.
Insects are ectothermic, which means their internal body temperatures are regulated by surrounding environmental temperatures. Researchers suggest the key to surviving cold winter temperatures for some species is to maintain a balanced salt and water blood concentration.
A new hybrid center pivot irrigation system sprays water above ground and pulls less water from underground, ultimately reducing the amount needed to grow potato crops.
James Sullivan talks here about the Comet 67P and the gaseous oxygen (unusual) and other findings on it that have learnings for us regarding the beginning of life on our planet.
Recently analyzed lava samples suggest water was present when the planets were just beginning to form.
Using nano-sized particles of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, researchers have found a way to increase the growth and antioxidant content of tomato plants. This may soften the impact population growth has on natural resources in the future.
Using a water-resistant sponge material that absorbs contaminants, designers have created a 3D-printed bathing suit that cleans the water as you swim.
Yale researchers have confirmed that removing natural gas from deep underground using hydraulic fracturing methods does not contaminate drinking water, although they also said that "geology across the country is very different."
New research involving dark streaks on hillsides and salt deposits is the strongest evidence so far, say researchers, that Mars currently has flowing water.
After examining potentially habitable climates of three exoplanets, two seem to use an air-condition-like system that prevents the planet from getting too hot, according to KU Leuven researchers.
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.
Rice University researchers recently developed solar water-splitting technology that produces a clean, renewable energy source, through processes of splitting water.
A planetary scientist explains that, with some adaptations, life-forms similar to Earth's could live on other planets' environments as well.
