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.
Paleontology may involve studying fossils and remnants from the past, but that doesn't mean future techniques aren't making the process a bit easier--and more insightful.
Scientists may have found a new way to harness the vast amounts of wasted excess heat that are generated by industrial processes and electric power plants.
Would you consider eating meat made of stem cells? Scientists are now looking at the possibility of culturing meat from these cells, which could potentially result in a more ethical and greener source for meat.
Scientists have created a super-hydrophobic material that's so repellent, it causes water to almost act like a solid.
Scientists have created the world's smallest, fastest and longest-running nanomotor to date. The synthetic motor is an important step when it comes to developing miniature machines in the future.
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.
Spiders spin super-sticky silk in order to capture their prey. Now, though, scientists are taking some inspiration from these strands to create more efficient and stronger commercial and biomedical adhesives.
Using material found in Silly Putt and surgical tubing, scientists have created a new way to make lithium-ion batteries that last three times longer between charges than current industry standard batteries.
Drought continues to plague the United States and now, scientists are using some new technology to monitor it.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) released their newest data on Thursday regarding trends in education, science, and research in each of the country’s 50 states. A division of the NSF used their state data tool that will gather telling results.
