Imagine shooting lightning out of the sky with the help of lasers. That's exactly what researchers are aiming for. They've created new techniques that bring lasers as lightning rods closer to reality.
Scientists may have developed a theory to explain why dark matter has evaded direct detection.
Scientists have used a powerful microscope to image the three-dimensional positions of individual atoms to a precision of 19 trillionths of a meter, which is several times smaller than a hydrogen atom.
Researchers at NIST have managed to teleport quantum information over 100 kilometers of optical fiber, which is four times farther than the previous record.
Scientists have discovered that supermassive black hole pairs are much more rare than originally presumed, which makes the task of measuring ripples in space-time even more difficult.
Invisibility cloaks have been around for quite some time. But imagine one that's an ultra-thin, invisibility "skin" cloak that can conform to the shape of an object and conceal it from detection with visible light.
Scientists have taken a step forward when it comes to creating hydrogen as fuel. They've created a highly efficient catalyst that could ease the way to a hydrogen economy.
You've probably seen it on crime shows. Forensic scientists oftentimes collect evidence from both blood and teeth to help them identify a dead body--particularly in determining the the person's age.
Scientists have, for the very first time, managed to levitate individual nanodiamonds in a vacuum by using a laser. The new findings may create extremely sensitive instruments that could be used for sensing tiny forces and torques.
Scientists may have created a "wormhole" that connects two distant regions of space. They've managed to construct the first experimental "wormhole" that can connect two regions of space magnetically.
Could the world's oldest Koran actually be older than the Prophet Muhammad?
