Imagine you are about to plan and construct a building that involves several complicated geometrical shapes, but you aren't allowed to write down any numbers or notes as you do it. For most of us, this would be impossible.
Using the largest set of radiocarbon dates ever obtained from a single Maya site, archaeologists have developed a high-precision chronology that sheds new light on patterns leading up to the two major collapses of the ancient civilization.
Chemists at Carnegie Mellon University have demonstrated that synthetic nanoparticles can achieve the same level of structural complexity, hierarchy and accuracy as their natural counterparts - biomolecules. The study, published in Science, also reveals the atomic-level mechanisms behind nanoparticle self-assembly.

Providing medical assistance in dying to people in Canada will not increase health care costs, and could reduce spending by between $34.7 and $138.8 million, according to a new research paper. The savings exceed the $1.5 million to $14.8 million in direct costs associated with implementing medical assistance in dying.
Cervical cancer is considered to be rather treatable, and somewhat uncommon, but a new analysis believes the risk of dying from cervical cancer is higher than previously thought. Less surprisingly, there are still racial differences in mortality. read more
Satirical news programs, often dismissed as mere entertainment, have real political effects on the people who watch them, new research suggests. A study found that people chose satirical news that matched their pre-existing attitudes -- liberal or conservative -- and that watching satirical news reinforced those attitudes as much as watching serious news.
After a near-death experience, people often describe floating out of their bodies. Recreating the sensation with VR can make people less anxious about dying
