Scientists have shown for the first time that the energetic cost of living (the metabolic rate) of fish can be measured in structures that grow... [Read More]
Saturn's distinctive rings were observed in unprecedented detail by NASA's Cassini spacecraft, and scientists have now used those observations to probe the interior of the... [Read More]
Scientists have developed tiny elastic robots that can change shape depending on their surroundings. Modeled after bacteria and fully biocompatible, these robots optimize their movements... [Read More]
In its last days, the Cassini spacecraft looped between Saturn and its rings so that Earth-based radio telescopes could track the gravitational tug of each.... [Read More]
A team of scientists has determined the number of asteroid impacts on the Moon and Earth increased by two to three times starting around 290... [Read More]
A powerful new technique combines expansion microscopy with lattice light-sheet microscopy for nanoscale imaging of fly and mouse neuronal circuits and their molecular constituents that's... [Read More]
A study by researchers from Sweden and Hungary shows that white, painted stripes on the body protect skin from insect bites. It is the first... [Read More]
Scientists have developed a biological system which lets cells form a desired shape by molding their surrounding material -- in the first instance creating a... [Read More]
driving climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution due to over-application of nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizers, and unsustainable changes in water and land use. [Read More]
Currently approximately 600 species might be inaccurately assessed as non-threatened on the Red List of Threatened Species. More than a hundred others that couldn't be... [Read More]
New research reveals the previously unknown behaviors of juvenile Emperor penguins in their critical early months when they leave their birth colony and first learn... [Read More]
Solar cells, quantum computing and photodynamic cancer therapy. These all involve molecules switching between magnetic and nonmagnetic forms. Previously this process, called a "spin flip,"... [Read More]
A team of scientists has, for the first time, used a single, cohesive computer model to simulate the entire life cycle of a solar flare:... [Read More]
Vampire bats could hold the key to new treatments for a range of serious medical problems, but researchers have hit a snag accessing the specimens... [Read More]
An international team of researchers found evidence for the much theorized 'hot cocoon'. [Read More]
Scientists have managed to grow perfect human blood vessels as organoids in a petri dish for the first time. The breakthrough engineering technology dramatically advances... [Read More]
intentionally controlled light can help regulate human health and productivity by eliciting various hormonal responses. Tailored LED wavelengths and intensities also can efficiently stimulate plant... [Read More]
Whale sharks, the world's largest fish, likely endure periods of starvation and may eat more plants than previously thought, according to the first results of... [Read More]
Scientists have developed a novel chemical process to convert infrared energy into visible light, allowing innocuous radiation to penetrate living tissue and other materials without... [Read More]
