The best way to hide a murder is to hide the evidence. Now, crime stoppers may have new geophysical tools that could help them uncover hidden graves that could hold dozens of bodies.
Scientists have created the boson sampling computer, a new type of quantum computer that has the potential for speeding up information processing speeds and revolutionizing the way computers solve problems.
With the start of the polar summer, NASA's new Greenland rover -- GROVER -- can be seen on its first test trip on the ice sheet this week, as planned.
Bubbles come in a range of sizes. They can be the fragile, iridescent globes of soap bubbles or they can be the frothy foam on your latte. Now,researchers have mathematically described the successive stages in the complex evolution and disappearance of foamy bubbles.
Engineers fine-tune the sensitivity of nano-chemical sensor: Tweaking graphene chemical sensors may open up many applications
A tiny robotic insect that can fly like a bee and is similar in size was developed over long years and then successfully test-flown by Harvard roboticists.
There's a whole new meaning to the term "power plant." Researchers are developing a new technology that allows them to harvest electricity directly from these green photosynthesizers. It could mean a whole new way to harvest sustainable solar energy.
If you wanted to catch a glimpse of how our Earth has changed over time, now you can. Google has expanded its mapping platform by launching a new project called Timelapse. This latest project warps you about 30 years into the past and allows you to see how the planet has changed since then.
Quantum computers have long been heralded as the theoretical supercomputers of our age. Now, one researcher has discovered that quantum computing can be far speedier than traditional computing--in certain areas.
With new technique developed by Columbia Engineering researchers managed to encapsulate a single water molecule inside a football-shaped carbon (C60) molecular structure.
Scientists are developing high-brilliance laser beam sources, which enable the laser welding of plastics for improved and rapid production of complexly-shaped parts, and could therefore lead to important advances in the manufacturing of polymeric products.
Silicon-based flexible large scale integrated circuits (LSI) which can be used for in vivo (implanted) bio-medical wireless communication were successfully developed and tested by a team led by Professor Keon Jae Lee from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at KAIST, South Korea.
