A team of U.S. engineers have created the most water resistant material in which the droplets knocked down the theoretical time barrier on bouncing. This latest find can be used in several application ranging from aircraft wings to waterproof clothing.
A 10-year study has revealed that the rate of abnormalities in frogs, such as shortened or missing legs, was less than 2 percent overall. This indicates that the malformations that were first reported in the mid-1990s are a lot less common than originally feared.

An underwater volcanic eruption gave rise to a new island measuring 200 meters in diameter in the Pacific Ocean.
In a new technique, German researchers have used combination of computed tomography (CT) scans along with three dimensional(3D) printers to recreate accurate copies of dinosaur fossils.
A rare fish has been found in the Arctic waters, it is scientifically known as Rhinochimaeridae, also called the "long-nosed chimaera".
Mules and other hybrids aren't fertile. But why is that exactly? Scientists may have no uncovered the genetic reason. It turns out that differences in the levels--but not necessarily the sequences--of certain key proteins are crucial in mediating reproductive isolation.
A latest study states that babies have a natural aversion to touch plants. The study claims that this helps the infants to protect themselves against thorns and possible toxins present in the plants.
The calcite crust that grows among layers of seafloor algae helps in reconstructing climate change and also helps in modelling the future change in the climate, according to a latest study.
It turns out that permafrost may be contributing more to greenhouse gases than we thought. Scientists have discovered that methane emissions produced by thawing permafrost in the Canadian Arctic are greatly underestimated in current climate models.
