NASA's Mars rover Curiosity, the vehicle that's trekking across the Red Planet in hopes of making novel discoveries, has officially drilled into its second rock. The sample, once analyzed by the rover's onboard laboratory, could reveal new insight into the origins of Mars.
Researchers have discovered that while the Amazon Rainforest stores carbon, the Amazon River "exhales" it in high amounts.
Researchers may have made a breakthrough when it comes to understanding the onset of Alzheimer's disease. They've discovered a catalytic trigger when the fundamental structure of a protein molecule changes to cause a chain reaction that leads to the death of neurons in the brain.
The deadly Irish Potato Famine spread across Ireland during the 1800s. Now, researchers have discovered the pathogen responsible for the famine, revealing a little bit more about Europe's grisly past.
We may be one step closer to creating foldable computers that could potentially fit in a pocket. Researchers have used graphene-based ink to inkjet-print graphene patterns that could eventually be used to create extremely detailed, conductive electrodes.
Things are about to get a bit hotter in Manhattan--and it's likely to take a toll. Researchers have discovered that rising temperatures associated with climate change will increase the death toll by as much as 20 percent in the summer by the 2020s.
A vast pool of warm water stretches along the equator from Africa to the western Pacific Ocean. Now, scientists have discovered that the level of this water may have influenced the tropical climate of our Earth during the last ice age.
Bats aren't the only ones that can use echolocation. Scientists have discovered that blind and visually impaired people may also have the potential to use the same ability.
Ever wondered what a dinosaur's brain was like? Scientists may have found out. By using ancient fossils, researchers have shed light on how the brain and inner ear developed in dinosaurs.
As people hit the beach and the outdoors this summer, the sun will be brighter than ever--and some SPF ratings for sunscreen may be misleading.
Scientists are training honeybees to seek out hidden, unexploded landmines in Croatia. The new technique has the potential to save lives.
The Navy has discovered a rare, 19th century torpedo. While this finding would itself be extraordinary, it's made all the more interesting due to what branch of the Navy actually found the antique--dolphins.
