A new radar-based technology developed by NASA and the Department of Homeland Security could help rescue workers save a greater number of lives following building collapses.
Researchers have developed the world's first mind-controlled bionic leg -- an innovation that could mean significant improvements in the lives of the estimated 1 million Americans with leg amputations.
The world's first carbon nanotube computer that has a speed of a 1970s silicon chip has been developed by researchers at Stanford. Experts say that the invention could mark the end of silicon chips.
As robots' role on the battlefield continues to increase, so do soldiers' attachment to them, according to new research.
Researchers at the European Space Agency (ESA) have developed a robotic prototype that could serve as the basis for future robots designed to explore foreign space bodies.
Scientists have successfully encased spider silk in carbon nanotubing, a technological breakthrough that shows promise to lead the way to more practical methods to conduct electricity in a more ecologically efficient way.
An upgraded version of Space X's two-stage Falcon 9 rocket ran into trouble when it roared to life on Thursday for a "static test fire." The glitch forced the company to put Sunday launch plans on hold.
Converted military drones are among NASA's newest tools in the ongoing effort to better understand how hurricanes and other severe storm systems form and evolve.
Japan successfully launched a brand new type of rocket on Saturday three weeks after a technical difficulty brought the spacecraft's launch to a screeching halt seconds before takeoff.
Researchers have developed a new filtering system designed to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from electric power station smokestacks.
Pencil squid have long proven useful to humans, mostly in the form of fried calamari on dinner plates, but a novel use for the creature has been discovered by researchers at University of California, Irvine, who have developed a camouflage coating from a protein in the everyday squid.
A new camera could enable future NASA rovers to function with more autonomy, cutting down on the wait time for new commands and increasing the possibility of missions to sites much farther out in the solar system.
Researchers have designed a new kind of antennae that could significantly increase the range of small satellites, known as CubeSats, allowing them to travel much farther in the solar system.
Researchers at the Brigham Young University have found that liars take longer to reply to digital messages such as texts. Also, liars are more likely to edit their messages and send shorter replies.
