Researchers may have made a breakthrough when it comes to unlocking the secrets of ancient Herculaneum scrolls. Although the scrolls cannot physically be opened, scientists have now created software that will visualize the scrolls' writings as they would be if unrolled after scanning them.
Can you imagine creating planets in the lab? That's just what scientists are doing. They're conducted new laser-driven compression experiments to reproduce the conditions deep inside exotic super-Earths and giant planet cores.
Scientists are learning a bit more about the ecosystems thriving beneath Antarctic ice. Using a hot-water drill and an underwater robotic vehicle, researchers have made some new discoveries about Antarctica's geology and biology.
New findings published in Nature Genetics uncover DNA's biological significance, according to researchers at Cornell University. They examined how new computational methods can indentify positions in the human genome that play a role in the proper functioning of cells.
Lasers have yet another use. Scientists are using them to transform metals into extremely water-repellent materials without the need for temporary coatings. This could be huge for airplanes, anti-rust materials and other applications.
New findings could actually improve practices for current biotech crops. Scientists have discovered that multiple toxins in transgenic crops don't help when it comes to pest control.
Scientists have discovered a method to both enhance light emission and capture light from metamaterials embedded with light emitting nanocrystals.
Scientists have taken a novel approach to gaining high-resolution images of cells by enlarging tissue samples by embedding them in a polymer that swells when water is added.
Astronomers are turning to machines when it comes to learning more about the stars.
Let's face it. We all pick up a ton of germs handling this and that throughout the day, and of course, everything we touch latches on to many of these germs as well.
The Japanese VR headset manufacturer Fove has created Eye Play the Piano, a type of VR application that allows children with physical disabilities to play the piano.
