Could asphalt actually provide a new technique for "green" carbon capture? Scientists have found that the best material to keep carbon dioxide from natural gas wells from fouling the atmosphere may be a derivative of asphalt.
As temperatures drop this winter, scientists are looking at new ways to keep us warm. Now, they've announced that they've created a new nanowire coating for clothes that can both generate heat and trap heat from our bodies better than regular clothes.
Robots may tell scientists a bit more about the Antarctic. Underwater drones have now mapped the underside of Antarctica's sea ice, revealing algae and other organisms that live within this icy ecosystem.
There may be a new method to enhance fuel cell efficiency. Scientists have created a new technique that not only ups efficiency, but also removes toxic, heavy metal ions.
Scientists have uncovered the gene regulatory networks of plants that control cell wall thickening by the synthesis of the three polymers, cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin. The findings could mean a more efficient way to convert plant biomass to biofuel.
It turns out that analyzing what people tweet on Twitter may just help with urban planning. Scientists have suggested that using geolocalized tweets could potentially be used for urban planning and land use by identifying the nightlife areas of certain location
A team of astronomers have created a realistic simulation of the universe in which realistic galaxies are created.
NASA scientists are working on adhesive gripping tools inspired by geckos that could potentially grapple objects such as orbital debris or defunct satellites that would otherwise be hard to handle.
Scientists have created metamaterial coatings that could be extremely useful in the future.
Researchers have observed and measured synaptic transmission in a live animal for the very first time.
Scientists have developed the first 3D metamaterials by combining physic-chemical formulation and microfluidics technology.
