Virgin Galactic's reusable space vehicle SpaceShipTwo (SS2) completed its second supersonic flight on Thursday, achieving the highest altitude and greatest speed to date.
Researchers have developed a transparent skull implant they say could open up new treatments for life-threatening neurological disorders, including brain cancer and traumatic brain injury.
Researchers at Michigan Technological University have developed a prototype of a microscopic thruster that could one day be used to power miniature rockets.
Harvard University researchers have developed a gel-based audio speaker system in which electrical charges are carried by ions, rather than electrons.
NASA recently tested its largest 3-D printed rocket engine component to date, marking a milestone in one of the agency's most promising strategies designed to cut space hardware-related costs.
GOES-12 captured data from Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the blizzard that crippled the Central US in 2009 and since 2010 it has been covering South America.
A new pair of experimental ytterbium atomic clocks at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) -- the agency responsible for keeping the official time in the US -- have set a new record for stability.
An international team of researchers have developed a new type of camera capable of taking images so sharp it could detect a baseball diamond on the Moon.
Scientists have created a new app based in part on International Space Station technology that, they say, is capable of testing water quality without costly lab equipment.
It's not exactly "mind reading," per se, but a team of researchers have developed a method through which they are able to determine what letter a person is looking at based on a scan of their brain.
A new material consisting of a thin coating of nanocrystals embedded in glass could revolutionize the world of windows and energy efficiency, according to those behind it.
In response to the question "Can you 3D print an airplane?" two researchers have developed a new lightweight structure whose X-shaped, interlocking pieces are 10 times stiffer for a given weight than existing ultralight materials.
Scientists say they have developed a new way to slow the rate at which light travels that could one day lead to new technologies in remote sensing and measurement science.
In an effort to create robots capable of traversing increasingly difficult terrain, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania say they have developed a device boasting both jumping and climbing abilities.
