A sensor developed in Norway gives microphones hyper-acute hearing and a sense of direction.
Since the 1960s, we’ve known the winds of Venus “super-rotate,” or blow faster than the planet rotates. Now a spacecraft has found Venus’ winds are speeding up.
Researchers have found that cells in our bodies carry out something similar to a game of tag to coordinate their movement in a particular direction.
Researchers develop method to design synthetic materials and quickly turn the design into reality using computer optimization and 3-D printing.
At team of astrophysicists says it has shown, for the first time, that high-energy light emission is not only possible, but inevitable when gas is drawn into a black hole.
Researchers are evaluating the potential of woody crops for fuel production. The black locust, in particular, showed a higher yield and a faster harvest time.
Scientists have discovered a previously undetected layer in the cornea, the clear window at the front of the human eye.
Temperatures swing by as much as 58 degrees Fahrenheit (32 kelvins) in this odd, twice-a-day pattern on the planet Mars.
Researchers have proven a new technique that will provide a clearer picture of the universe’s history and be used with the next generation of radio telescopes such as the Square Kilometre Array (SKA).
As the carbon content of the ocean continues to increase, purple sea urchins may be able to adapt rapidly to survive.
The beautiful Chinese passion flower species Passiflora kwangtungensis may be in danger.
Space scientists report that lighter materials like plastics provide effective shielding against the radiation hazards faced by astronauts during extended space travel.
A high moose population density and mild autumn weather result in a higher prevalence of deer keds (louse fly parasite). A great deal of pine forest in the habitat of the moose has the same effect.
This proposal, which endows dark matter particles with a rare form of electromagnetism, has been strengthened by a detailed analysis performed by a pair of theoretical physicists.
These researchers found that long-term, but not short-term, SSRI treatment impairs “extinction learning:” the ability to learn that a conditioned stimulus no longer predicts an aversive event.
Night-shining clouds appear early in northern summer, when water molecules are wafted up from the lower atmosphere to mix with “meteor smoke.”
NASA scientists have released a new and improved movie clip of near-Earth asteroid 1998 QE2 and its moon.
A team of 23 scientists will be sampling and measuring the water column from the surface to the ocean floor some 4,800 metres down – nearly 3 miles.
Researchers are developing optomechanical sensors that will help unlock vibrational secrets of chemical and biological samples at the nanoscale.
The dust trap provides a safe haven for tiny particles in the disk of this young star, allowing the particles to clump and grow, ultimately to become comets, planets and moons.
