Forget about Kevlar; graphene may be the new bullet-proof material. Scientists have taken a new look at graphene's strength by shooting it with microbullets.
The ESA has now released the best-ever map of ocean currents that circulate our globe, revealing a bit more about the patterns that influence climate across the world.
Scientists have created a new plastic blend that can cast away heat 10 times better than conventional plastics.
Astronauts may be getting their espresso fix in space. Scientists have designed a new cup that can defy the low-gravity environment encountered aboard the International Space Station (ISS).
Imagine plastic that actually disappeared. Sounds impossible, right? Now, though, scientists may be able to create a new type of plastic that can be broken down when exposed to a specific type of light.
Engineers may have come up with a new material that beams heat back into space.
Blue-ray disks may be more useful than you might have thought. Scientists have discovered that Blue-ray disks may actually improve the performance of solar cells, which suggests a second use for unwanted disks.
A robot is giving scientists a new look on Antarctic sea ice. The underwater robot, called SeaBED, has now helped create the first detailed, high-resolution 3D maps of Antarctic sea ice, revealing accurate ice thickness from areas that were previously too difficult to access.
Researchers have just uncovered the ancient remains of Roman goldmines with the help of a laser.
Spiderman has some competition. Scientists have created gloves that allow the user to scale glass walls like a gecko.
Texting might seem harmless, but did you know it may be adding extensive pressure to your neck over time? In fact, recent findings published in the journal Surgical Technology International show that it could be adding as much as 60 pounds to your head, neck and shoulder-area.
Scientists have discovered a completely new form of crystalline order that exhibits two different properties: crystal and polycrystalline. The new material could potentially improve the efficiency of thermoelectric devices.
