Although magma stored beneath the volcanic surface can remain solid for thousands of years, it can also take only a few months to heat up and cause an eruption. Now, scientists have examined Mount Hood to get a closer look at this phenomenon.
Inspired by the structure of a pomegranate, a team of international experts has created a new battery electrode that solves the existing drawbacks of lithium-ion batteries.
For the first time in scientific history scientists have harnessed the power of nuclear fusion in a reaction that occurred in under a second. Scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California recorded the successful reaction.
UNESCO has declared 2014 as the International Year of Crystallography. But why? Quite simply because the science of crystallography has revolutionised how we live – and yet few people know about it.
Pacific salmon may posses an inherent “magnetic map” that guides them through their thousands of miles of migration.
The same physics that gives tornadoes their ferocious stability lies at the heart of new University of Washington research, and could lead to a better understanding of nuclear dynamics in studying fission, superconductors and the workings of neutron stars.
Around 100 years ago a father and his son in north England conducted an experiment that would revolutionise the way scientists study molecules.
The word “pseudoscience” is used to describe something that is portrayed as scientific but fails to meet scientific criteria.
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...
