A trio of university researchers is proposing to advance 3D printing one step—or rather, one dimension—further by manipulating materials in the nanoscale range so that they can change their structure and behavior over time.
A team from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Northwestern University has devised a novel nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique that delivers a roughly 10nanometer spatial resolution.
An open competition for the planetary community to submit proposals for the science and exploration technology instruments that would be carried aboard the agency's next Mars rover, scheduled for launch in July/August of 2020, has been announced by NASA.
Nearly half of U.S. jobs could be susceptible to computerisation over the next two decades, a study from the Oxford Martin Programme on the Impacts of Future Technology suggests.
A Lund University research team has made an astounding discovery – bees have a battery of healthy bacteria in their honey stomach that protects them. Giving these lactic acid bacteria back to bees boosts their natural immune system, helping them fight off disease.
The world’s first 3D printed human-scale structure seen here was designed and created by architects Michael Hansmeyer and Benjamin Dillenburger out of plain sand.
Scientists at the Vienna University of Technology have succeeded in combining graphene light detectors with semiconductor chips, a crucially important step to develop highly advanced and miniaturized optoelectronics.
This colorful scene is situated in the Noctis Labyrinthus region of Mars, perched high on the Tharsis rise in the upper reaches of the Valles Marineris canyon system.
The crowd-sourced physics simulator Test4Theory has simulated its one trillionth (1012) particle collision since its launch just two years ago.
Scientists trying to decypher the fundamental laws and building blocks that constitute our universe at CERN in Switzerland had to go big in terms of giant devices and hyper-charged technology required to achieve their ambitious goals. They succeeded.
Though less Arctic sea ice melted in 2013 compared to 2012, this year's total is the sixth lowest in the satellite record. This year continues a long-term downward trend of about 12 percent Arctic sea ice loss per decade since the late 1970s -- a decline that accelerated after 2007.
Reliable quantum computing would make it possible to solve certain types of extremely complex technological problems millions of times faster than today’s most powerful supercomputers. Other types of problems that quantum computing could tackle would not even be feasible with today’s fastest mac...
