A team of international researchers have developed a new catalyst that can electrochemically convert the greenhouse gas into carbon monoxide that can further be used to develop useful chemicals.
For thousands of years scientists have used mathematics to describe the physical properties of the universe. But if all of these properties are part of a mathematical structure, wouldn’t the universe be purely mathematical?
In acknowledgement of tomorrow's Super Bowl XLVIII, questions and concerns have been raised regarding "cold weather" stadiums as a venue for the big game. Oddly enough, based on information collected about the 31 National Football League stadiums in the United States, the location of the venue doesn...
Kawah Ijen is located on the island of Java in Indonesia. When it “erupts” it doesn’t send lava running down its slopes. Instead, it emits an electric-blue fire that’s captivating at nighttime.
California-based scientist/author sues NASA for refusing to investigate alien fungus on Mars.
Drawing inspiration from seashells, international scientists have created a glass that bends but does not break when dropped, rather it slights gets deformed.
An astronomer at the University of West Virginia believes he has discovered a never-before-seen hydrogen river that is flowing through space and streaming into the galaxy of NGC 6946. His discovery is attributed to the use of the National Science Foundation's Green Bank Telescope.
Results show a rupture of the San Andreas Fault could generate three times more shaking in Los Angeles than surrounding regions.
The discovery of what is essentially a 3D version of graphene -- the 2D sheets of carbon through which electrons race at many times the speed at which they move through silicon -- promises exciting new things to come for the high-tech industry, including much faster transistors and far more compact ...
New device from MIT can measure masses as small as one millionth of a trillionth of a gram, in solution.
An international tests show claims that the sticky feet of a gecko like robot developed by a team of engineering scientists could be useful in future space missions.
A collaborative study funded by DARPA had led to the development of a world's fastest thin-film organic transistors. This newly developed thin, transparent semiconductors promises to stand as a foundation for cheap, high performance displays.
