Plants living in arid, mountainous and humid region on our planet often rely on their leaves to obtain the moisture they need for survival by pulling mist straight out of the air. But exactly how plants managed to survive on mist alone has long puzzled scientists.
Scientists have found that dark matter interacts with itself even less than previously thought, which narrows down what the substance might actually be.
It turns out that ice water turns into a new form entirely when placed between two layers of graphene.
A new experiment has first the first time ever demonstrated Albert Einstein's original conception of "spooky action at a distance" with the use of a single particle.
There may be a new technique to control heat with a magnetic field.
Do stars "sing?" They just may be able to, according to new research. A chance discovery has revealed that stars may generate sound that we are unable to hear.
Scientists have gained some new insights into dark energy and the theory of gravitation by analyzing data from the Planck satellite mission
Recent research may reveal a bit more about the nature of dark matter. Scientists have set limits to the properties of one of the particles which aspire to be identified as dark matter: axions.
Light behaves as both a particle and a wave. Now, though, researchers have succeeded in capturing a snapshot of the dual behavior of light for the very first time.
A state-of-the-art optical atomic clock has officially begun to tick. Developed by scientists and the first of its kind in Poland, the clock is just one of a handful of this caliber in the world.
One of the most powerful events in the universe occurs when two black holes collide. Now, scientists have taken a closer look at this event and have learned a bit more about what happens when two orbiting black holes become one.
Stars and planets are made of particles--not antiparticles. This asymmetry, which favors matter slightly, has puzzled scientists for years. Now, though, a group of physicists may have solved this mystery
