At first glance, Titan has little in common with Earth. The largest moon of Saturn, temperatures on Titan's surface dip nearly 300 F below zero, its seas slosh with liquid methane, and its sky is a murky shade of creamsicle. And yet, fresh analysis of mysterious features spotted on the moon indicates that it experiences one of the same global processes that is important here on Earth.
Deflector shields aren’t just for the starship Enterprise. One day, giant magnetic bubbles could protect spacecraft on long voyages.
Even when a distant world has the trademarks of habitability—it's Earth-sized, it's in the zone around its star where liquid water is possible—finding signs of life is tricky. The telescope technology of today falls short of being able to distinguish clues of life.
A saucer-shaped NASA vehicle testing new technology that could one day help humans land on Mars made a successful rocket ride over the Pacific, but its massive descent parachute only partially unfurled.
There’s no reason in principle why life couldn’t evolve on a gas giant, but it would have to be some highly unusual life. Last week, we discussed the possibility of life on Jupiter and found it to be a fairly inhospitable place, at least by Earth standards. Does Neptune fare any better? Yes, actually.
A new "supercooling" technique keeps rat livers alive three times longer than before, boosting hopes for easing shortages of human transplant organs, report scientists.
Small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have a big problem: their limited battery power. But researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory are developing a way to extend the range by having drones act like birds. If a drone can land on a power line, the thinking goes, then it can exploit the electricity running through power lines to recharge.
Magnesium chloride, the chemical used to make tofu and bath salts, could become a key ingredient in the production of solar cells, according to a University of Liverpool study.
Want to find the nearest pterosaur? There's an app for that — or a database, at least.
For more than a million years, the simple stone hand axe was one of our most important tools, but in the age of smartphones and virtual reality it can be hard to understand how revolutionary it really was. In their design series "Man Made," Dov Ganchrow and Ami Drach use 3D printing to make the tool's importance a little more clear.
This week, The Australian reported that a hand stencil found in a controversial coal mining development in the Blue Mountains was a “fake”. The story has also been reported by the BBC and was picked up by Andrew Bolt at the Herald Sun.
The Chauvet cave was painted approximately 30,000 years ago and the dreams were buried and sealed for 20,000 years by a land slide. The site and its contents were discovered in 1994 and rocked the world!
WILSALL – The 12,600-year-old remains of an infant boy were reburied Saturday in a Native American ceremony after scientists recovered DNA from the child discovered in central Montana in 1968.
A small hammer dating to the 10th century was found recently on the Danish Island of Lolland. Over 1000 of these amulets have been found across Northern Europe but the pendant from Lolland is the only one with a runic inscription.
For thousands of years, Mother Nature has taken the blame for tremendous human suffering caused by massive flooding along the Yellow River, long known in China as China’s Sorrow and Scourge of the Sons of Han. Now, new research from Washington University in St. Louis links the river’s increasingly deadly floods to a widespread pattern of human-caused environmental degradation and related flood-mitigation efforts that began changing the river’s natural flow nearly 3,000 years ago.
When we talk about the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, we’re generally talking about things that we can safely assume actually existed. This becomes a little trickier when you’re talking about the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, which is a lost wonder in more than one sense: not only can we find no remaining pieces of the gardens now, but we have only outlandish and contradictory documentary evidence that they ever existed in the first place.
For many years, Zahi Hawass has been the living face of ancient Egypt, an ambassador for long-dead Pharaohs who uses his high-wattage personality, telegenic showmanship and knack for wading confidently into controversy to preserve both their star power and the monuments that hordes of laborers built at their command.
