Imagine all the water in the Arctic Ocean. Now, imagine all that and more on Mars. If you visited the Red Planet roughly 4.3 billion years ago, that's what you likely would have found, say NASA scientists. Their new study arrived at that "solid estimate... by determining how much...
New research showing how tiny creatures drifted across the ocean before falling to the seafloor and being fossilized has the potential to improve our understanding of past climates, scientists say.
NASA scientists reveal new compelling evidence that proves the red planet once hosted a massive body of water, at least the size of the Arctic Ocean.
The use of psychedelic drugs does not increase a person’s risk of developing mental health problems, according to new research published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology. Norwegian clinical psychologist Pål-Ørjan Johansen and neuroscientist Teri Suzanne Krebs said the findings show that most of...
Scientists have developed an entirely new, highly versatile mechanism for controlling passage of materials through micropores, using fluid to modulate their opening and closing. The new system can separate a wide range of cargos andShow More Summary
For once, slower is better in a new piece of technology. Scientists have developed a new, radio frequency processing device that allows information to be controlled more effectively, opening the door to a new generation of signal processing on microchips. One of the keys to the technology involves slowing information down.
In an effort to keep America believing that climate change is naturally caused by things like variations in the sun’s energy, politicians have, for years, cited scientists like Wei-Hock Soon who said he found scientific evidence pointing to such facts. Guess
A vast, ancient ocean reaching depths of more than one mile may have once occupied close to half of Mars' northern hemisphere, NASA scientists reported today. Read more...
Dry, dusty Mars once had an ocean that held as much water as the Arctic Ocean and covered a larger share of the Red Planet’s surface than the Atlantic Ocean does on Earth, according to a surprising new study.
If — or when — the zombie apocalypse comes, those of us in big cities are in trouble, according to research presented at the 2015 American Physical Society March meeting on March 5. Starting in a big city like New York or Atlanta would...Show More Summary
The skin is indeed the “next frontier” for new wearable devices. The days of reaching into your pocket to take a call on your smartphone will soon be a thing of the past, according to a team of American and German computer scientists. Show More Summary
Scientists have discovered a skin test that may shed new light on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, according to a study that will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 67th Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., April 18 to 25, 2015. The study showed that skin biopsies can be used to detect elevated levels of […]
A team of scientists call attention to nine issues that must be considered if there is to be any hope of limiting the environmental impacts of the ongoing expansion of new roads, road improvements, energy projects, and more now underway or 'coming soon' in countries all around the world.
Scientists have discovered a new way to manipulate how cells function, a finding that might help advance an experimental approach to improving public health: DNA vaccines, which could be more efficient, less expensive and easier to store than traditional vaccines. Show More Summary
Many may not remember, but in the 1960s, 70s and into the 80s scientists had a “consensus” about the environment. They were sure that the world was on the brink
In California, a biotech company called Ganogen Inc. is bragging about their new research breakthrough in a procedure that harvests the organs of aborted children and transplants them in animals, where they can grow and then be made available to patients. On their website, the company calls the process Xenotransplantation and asks the question, “Would […]
A recent breakthrough in 3D bioprinting is putting researchers closer than ever to being able to print transplantable organs on demand. Scientists report the discovery of a new "bio-ink" system which allows them to 3D print live cells in an organ-like material that is biodegradable, self-healing, and permeable to cell nutrients.
