Most people know how to boil eggs, but did you know there's now a way to unboil them?
Scientists are learning a bit more about Greenland's ice sheet with the help of some new technology. They've used ice-penetrating radar data collected by NASA's Operation IceBridge to build the first ever comprehensive map of layers deep inside the Greenland Ice Sheet.
Sounds waves passing through the air are considered "elastic waves." They travel at the surface or through a material without causing any permanent changes to the material's makeup. Now, though, scientists have developed a material that has the ability to control these waves.
Indium tin oxide is one of the most widely used materials for touchscreens, plasma displays and flexible electronics. But its rising price has forced the electronics industry to search for alternatives. Now, scientists may have discovered one alternative that could have some major potential.
Some new technology may be changing the lives of the blind. A woman and new mother was able to see her newborn baby for the very first time using eSight Glasses.
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.
