The world's best thermometer isn't made of mercury; it's made of light. Physicists have created the most sensitive thermometer yet that's three times more precise than the best thermometers in existence today.
The Kavli Prize is given to scientists in three fields: Astrophysics, Nanoscience, and Neuroscience. The prize for each field is worth $1 million and is awarded by the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters.
Researchers have created a super-hydrophobic surface that is extremely difficult to wet and makes water to bounce like a ball.
Can you imagine hearing light? That's exactly what a new device does. The technology "listens" for light waves and could help open up the last frontier of the electromagnetic spectrum-the terahertz range.
Scientists have created a super-hydrophobic material that's so repellent, it causes water to almost act like a solid.
Scientists have taken a closer look at the biomechanics of the necks of ants, potentially unlocking the secrets to their strength.
Creating matter from light? It sounds like something out of science fiction, right? Well scientists have managed to take something that seems improbable and devise an experiment to make it possible.
Atmospheric sprites have been known to exist for nearly a century. Yet exactly how they formed and where they come from have been a mystery--until now.
Neutron stars are extraordinarily dense stellar bodies that are created when massive stars collapse. Yet while these stars host some of the strongest magnetic fields in the universe, some of them are more strongly magnetized than others. Now, scientists have found out why this is.
Last week we saw President Obama interacting with Honda’s ASIMO soccer-playing robot. Another incredible and new piece of robotics is the RoboGolfPro – the golf swing coach of the future with various capabilities.
Scientists may have found a way to create tiny, but more powerful, signal-generating or receiving antennas and other electronics.
