It turns out that plutonium has magnetism-something that scientists have long theorized but haven't been able to prove. The new discovery holds great promise for materials, energy and computing applications.
There may be a new world record for a particle beam. Scientists have announced that Fermilab has set a new world record for the most powerful high-energy particle beam for neutrino experiments.
The universe overflows with repeating patterns-from the smallest cells to the largest galaxies. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at surfer's waves which occur not only on the ocean, but also in space.
Scientists may have developed a new design for a cloaking device that overcomes some of the limitations of existing invisibility cloaks. They've created a thin cloaking device that does not alter the brightness of light around a hidden object.
Scientists may have taken a step closer to teleportation. Researchers have successfully produced pairs of spin-entangled electrons and have demonstrated that these electrons remain entangled even when they're separated from one another.
It turns out that June is getting an extra second. Scientists have announced that Tuesday, June 30, 2015 will receive a "leap" second.
We may just be able to control lightning. Scientists have discovered a way to guide electric discharges and even steer them around obstacles by using lasers.
Black holes may be more complicated than we originally thought, and may not be the ruthless "killers" scientists once believed.
Scientists have created a toy car that is powered by the power of water vapor. The new car, which taps into the power of renewable energy, may pave the way for larger devices in the future.
Researchers may have created the world's thinnest light bulb. By using graphene, scientists have constructed an on-chip visible light source.
Scientists have managed to create the coldest stable molecules in the world. They've cooled molecules in a gas of sodium potassium (NaK) to a temperature of 500 nanokelvins, which is just a hair above absolute zero and over a million times colder than interstellar space.
