Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but scientists are now coming up with a way to measure it. They've used computational analysis of photographic images in order to assess the beauty-and health-of coral reefs.
Days are continuously getting shorter and shorter as winter gets ready to start. But for people suffering from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a light therapy may not necessarily be the best approach for treating the problem.
The new liquid can dissolve unusually large amounts of gas, which are absorbed by the holes in the liquid. This new study paves way for more efficient and greener chemical processes, such as carbon capturing, according to the researchers from Queen's University Belfast in the UK.
Researchers have created a new forge-proof security system that uses quantum technology. The new development is revolutionizing security and it paves the way to the next generation of security that does not require passwords and is impossible to clone.
Researchers at the RMIT University in Australia have created a new method for detecting varying levels of nitrogen dioxide, which is a harmful air pollutant.
In a recent study, researchers unearthed new findings on the explosive nature of magnetic reconnection, which is changing how scientists examine this astrophysical process and is shedding new light on the mechanical properties behind solar flares and geomagnetic storms.
In a recent study, researchers were able to move small objects made from graphene 'paper' by using heat and light.
MIT researchers have created a new method which will increase the amount of energy that is channelled from sunlight. This new technique involves a quantum process which increase the number of electrons produced when light strikes a metal-dielectric interface, like aluminum oxide.
Researchers have created an innovative temperature sensor that is printable, flexible and very light to carry. The new sensor can be used in health care and welfare applications, according to researchers at the University of Tokyo.
How do tiny insects and other animals clean themselves? Without this ability, these creatures would soon find themselves unable to properly function. Now, scientists have taken a closer look and have found that hair plays a huge role in keeping creatures filth-free.
A sea urchin, of all animals, has spurred an idea for new, lightweight materials. Scientists have taken a closer look at a sea urchin cousin, known as the heart urchin, as the inspiration for strong, lightweight materials.
A new telescope peering into "near space" may help unravel the mysteries of dark matter. Scientists hope to use the new telescope, which examines space within a few thousand light-years of Earth- to seek answers related to the field of high-energy astrophysics.
