Life on earth has long been a mystery, since the building blocks appear to have landed on the planet with no real explanation of how they got there. But a scientist has proposed one — those mysterious building blocks arrived here by crashing down with a meteorite.
Alt: Scientists solve the 'chicken and the egg' conundrum for life’s beginnings
Scientists from the Rosetta mission may have solved the puzzle of features on Comet 67P that look like they were produced by wind.
Astronomers have discovered thousands of exoplanets in our galaxy, the Milky Way, using the Kepler satellite and many of them have multiple planets orbiting the host star. By analysing these planetary systems, researchers from the Australian National University and the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen have calculated the probability for the number of stars in the Milky Way that might have planets in the habitable zone. The calculations show that billions of the stars in the Milky Way will have one to three planets in the habitable zone, where there is the potential for liquid water and where life could exist.
The galaxy could be stuffed with large moons that orbit alien worlds, according to an analysis of data from NASA's Kepler space telescope. Such moons are thought to be the most likely places to find alien life, so groups are clamouring to find the first.
Researchers from the University of Cambridge have designed a new type of pixel element and demonstrated its unique switching capability, which could make three-dimensional holographic displays possible.
A 3D printing process that harnesses light and oxygen has been demonstrated at the Ted (Technology, Entertainment and Design) conference in Vancouver.
After a chance observation in the lab, researchers found a method that can force dangerous leukemia cells in the lab to mature into harmless immune cells called macrophages.
Behind all those canned compliments for older adults — spry! wily! wise! — is an appreciation for something that scientists have had a hard time characterizing: mental faculties that improve with age.
Recalling a particular memory can cause us to forget another, similar memory - and neuroscientists have now watched this process happen using brain scans.
Alt: Memories Weaken Without Reinforcement, Study Finds
Babies who are breast-fed may be more likely to be successful in life, a provocative study published Tuesday suggests.
During my final semester of undergrad, I made two signs that read, “Feeling stressed about exams? Have a free hug!” Then I recruited a friend and we stood in the entrance of the campus library, held up the signs, and waited. Passerbys had one of two reactions: Either they quickly looked down at their phones and awkwardly shuffled by, or their faces lit up as they embraced us. Most people were enthusiastic. Some exclaimed, “You made my day!” or “Thank you. I needed this.” One leapt into my arms, nearly toppling me over. After two hours of warm interactions, my friend and I couldn’t believe how energized and happy we felt.
Green beer and emerald rivers? Pah. How about a vibrant light show of green and red auroras dancing across the night sky. Earth is currently experiencing a "severe" solar storm, probably due to clouds of charged particles that came racing off the sun on March 15. When high-speed particles from such coronal mass ejections, or CMEs, hit our atmosphere, they excite molecules of gas in the air and trigger brilliant displays of lights, most commonly around the Poles.
There are only five bodies in our solar system that are known to bear rings. The most obvious is the planet Saturn; to a lesser extent, rings of gas and dust also encircle Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune. The fifth member of this haloed group is Chariklo, one of a class of minor planets called centaurs: small, rocky bodies that possess qualities of both asteroids and comets.
It may be possible to draw energy from a vacuum using gravity, a theoretical physicist says.
Ice would make a fine rocket fuel, if you're a CubeSat.
Ever wanted to buy a flying car? You only have a couple more years to wait, says a company that has built prototypes that can both drive and fly.
Advancements in robotics have enabled humankind to automate a whole range of industrial processes, leading to more efficient and safer production and helping to expand our knowledge through scientific discovery. Why is it, however, that we can send a robot into space to take samples of Martian rocks, but still can't delegate the ironing to a household robot?
