The first continental-scale reconstruction of temperatures over the past 2000 years by 78 scientists from 24 countries has highlighted the unusual nature of the 20th century warming.
Automaker Hyundai recently held what seems like the best office-wide contest ever, asking its R&D engineers to show off their ideas. And they certainly did, unveiling a multi-rotor flying electric concept car.
It sounds like the ultimate do-it-yourself project: the print-your-own-home.
I have a stripy animal on my mantelpiece which is a 3D printed model of a drawing that my seven-year-old daughter made for me.
Jorge Roberto Lopes dos Santos, an industrial designer with the Instituto Nacional de Tecnologia in Brazil, is giving doctors a new way to print sonograms for their patients — as life-size replicas.
The prenatal sonogram is a life-changing moment for many expectant parents, giving rise to the inherent value these images hold whether as printouts passed among family members or posts on social media.
Jeffrey Karp is an animal lover, but this fondness did not lead to any affinity for Pomphorhynchus laevis, a blood-sucking parasite that resembles a fat earthworm with a small cactus sticking out of one end. Karp, an associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, was searching for ideas from the animal kingdom to solve human medical challenges when he stumbled upon the parasite in a Google search.
The spiny-headed worm invades fish and makes its home in a hapless victim’s intestines by sticking its spiked proboscis into the host’s tissue. It then anchors itself into the tissue by swelling that needle-like appendage.
Rather than being repulsed, Karp was inspired.
Early trials suggest a host of allergies and autoimmune ailments could be treated with worm therapy, or infection with live worm-like parasites. But will it ever reach the clinic?
Jim Turk initially put his symptoms down to stress. The self-described "health nut" who was in training to run marathons suddenly found himself unable to jog for more than a couple of minutes before coming to a gasping, staggering halt. His speech began to slur. Turk, then in his early thirties, blamed the combined pressures of juggling a full-time job, studying for a master's degree and his parenting responsibilities. When he collapsed in the middle of a baseball field one sunny afternoon in 2008 while coaching his son’s team, he realised it was time to seek help.
We recently had the chance to chat with Ethan Nadelmann, founder and executive director of the Drug Policy Alliance, an organization that has been at the forefront of the country's marijuana legalization and decriminalization efforts.
France has become the 14th country to approve a law allowing gay marriage.
The mummified remains of what looks like a 6-inch space alien has turned "Sirius" into the most eagerly awaited documentary among UFO enthusiasts.
The aliens are coming and they've found the perfect landing pad, nestled among the emerald hills of an Irish suburb.
Bigfoot rumours are flying again after two young boys found what appears to be a decomposing limb in a wooded area of Quincy, Massachusetts.
Chinese archaeologists have reported in China’s state news agency Xinhua that the tomb they are currently excavating in east Jiangsu Province might be the final resting place of an infamous and tyrannical emperor killed during an uprising in AD 618.
The grave of the notorious Emperor Yang of Sui would be an amazing discovery according to the Chinese archaeologists, though they do urge caution.
Archaeologists from the University of Leicester in the UK have uncovered one of the biggest groups of Iron Age metal artefacts to be found in the region -- in addition to finding dice and gaming pieces.
At least 1,000 Aboriginal founders first arrived in Australia some 50,000 years ago, a reconstruction indicates — numbers that could be evidence of an intentional migration rather than the accidental stranding of a few individuals at a time. The study also finds that the population was devastated during the latest Ice Age, but later rebounded.
During routine archaeological research as part of the Ancient Egypt Leatherwork Project (AELP) carried out by Salima Ikram, Professor of Egyptology at the American University in Cairo (AUC) and Andre Veldmeijer, head of the Egyptology section at the Netherlands Flemish Institute in Cairo, a collection of 300 leather fragments of an Old Kingdom chariot were uncovered at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
Ikram describes the discovery as very important and the collection as “extremely rare.” Only a handful of complete chariots are known from ancient Egypt, and of these, only one heavily restored in Florence and one in the Egyptian Museum have any significant amount of leather.
Ants have a complicated social structure, so much so that it's almost impossible to track their interactions. Now, researchers have individually tagged every single worker ant within an entire colony and tracked them with a computer in order to learn more about how they network. The result is the largest-ever data set of ant interactions.
Astronomers have finally found direct proof that almost all water present in Jupiter’s stratosphere was delivered by comet Shoemaker-Levy 9, which struck the planet in 1994. The result is based on new data from Herschel that revealed more water in Jupiter’s southern hemisphere, where the impacts occurred, than in the north as well as probing the vertical distribution of water in the planet’s stratosphere.
A private Mars colony project will do its best to avoid disturbing potential Red Planet life rather than aggressively hunt it down.
Organizers of the Dutch-based Mars One project opened up their website on Monday to take applications for a one-way trip to Mars in 2022.
