Wildfires are continues to increase as the climate changes. Now, scientists have taken the next step when it comes to predicting these fires. They've developed a new computer modeling technique that offers the promise of producing continually updated daylong predictions of wildfire growth throughout...
For the first time, a normally fragile quantum memory state was maintained at room temperature for a world record of 39 minutes, where both 1s and 0s are present at the same time, smashing previous record of few seconds.
An algorithm that extends an artificial-intelligence technique to new tasks could aid in analysis of flight delays and social networks.
Despite their almost incomprehensibly small size – a diameter about one ten-thousandth the thickness of a human hair – single-walled carbon nanotubes come in a plethora of different “species,” each with its own structure and unique combination of electronic and optical properties.
Nature designed lignin, the tough woody polymer in the walls of plant cells, to bind and protect the cellulose sugars that plants use for energy.
Social networks may not just connect us to other individuals; they may also make us smarter. Scientists have discovered that the secret behind why some cultures thrive while others disappear may lie in social networks and our ability to imitate, rather than individual smarts.
How do you make better batteries? You use viruses, of course. Scientists have found a way to boost lithium-air battery performance with the help of modified viruses. The findings could be huge when it comes to drastically increasing power per battery weight.
The first step in potentially curtailing and combating ocean acidification is monitoring it. Now, scientists have taken that first step by developing a cost-effective micro sensor for long-term monitoring of ocean acidification.
Could the movement of stingrays-cartilaginous fish classified in the Myliobatidae suborder-be the inspiration for the improvement of deep-sea vehicles' agility and fuel efficiency? Researchers from the University of Buffalo and Harvard University seem to think so as they are currently working on the...
An invisibility cloak may not just be something you find in the Harry Potter books. It turns out that two researchers have managed to demonstrate an effective invisibility cloak that is not only thin, but is also scalable and adaptive to different types and sizes of objects. The findings could open ...
A recent study shows how music affects both the structure and function of different regions of the brain and how those regions communicate during the creation of music to interpret different sensory information.
