Iron-rich rocks near ancient lake sites on Mars could hold vital clues that show life once existed there, research suggests.
Certain types of bacteria and viruses are readily ejected into the atmosphere when waves break; others less so, researchers reported. A team of chemists, oceanographers, microbiologists, geneticists, and pediatric medicine […]
Scientists integrated NASA’s New Horizons discoveries with data from ESA’s Rosetta mission to develop a new theory about how Pluto may have formed at the edge of our solar system.
Magma steadily emerges between oceanic plates. It pushes the plates apart, builds large underwater mountains and forms new seafloor. This is one of the fundamental processes that constantly change the […]
Researchers have designed a fleet of autonomous boats that offer high maneuverability and precise control. The boats can also be rapidly 3-D printed using a low-cost printer, making mass manufacturing […]
A new study of how ligaments restrict joint movement suggests that pterosaurs and ‘four-winged’ dinosaurs couldn’t have flown in the same way that bats do.
Exposure to early life trauma can elevate risk for poor physical and mental health in individuals and their children. A new epigenetics study in both men and mice posits that […]
In November 2017 — under a biodiversity monitoring and assessment activity supported by the US Agency for International Development — scientists and conservationists captured photographs of one of the rarest […]
Physicists have succeeded in entangling a single atom with a single photon in the telecom wavelength range. This constitutes a basic building block for transmission of quantum information over long […]
All the major groups of animals appear in the fossil record for the first time around 540-500 million years ago — an event known as the Cambrian Explosion — but […]
