Huge stone circles in the Middle East have been imaged from above, revealing details of structures that have been shrouded in mystery for decades.
The skeleton of a mammoth was discovered this month on the banks of a reservoir in Idaho. Paleontologists have rescued part of its skull and a tusk, but there could be a lot more buried below the surface.
Scanning the skies for near-earth asteroids might be the best first step for getting humans to Mars.
Alt: Asteroids could be used as ‘stepping stones’ to Mars
NASA goal to snag an asteroid and bring a space rock close to Earth is a distraction from the effort to send humans to Mars, a top asteroid expert says.
The latest innovation in medical 3D printing is a 3D printer that could one day make customized medicines on demand, currently under development by the University of Central Lancashire in Preston in the UK.
You’ve probably seen stories about the myriad uses for 3-D printing technology, in which specially-designed printers spray layers of material onto designs to create objects: chocolate candy, transplant organs, entire houses and guns, to name a few.
A team of roboticists in China is behind Dexmo, a hand-capturing device that uses a mechanical exoskeleton. The exoskeleton is designed for the user to touch the digital world. It will transmit a person's finger movement on to several rotational sensors and the data is transmitted directly to a device or back to a host computer, where the team's SDK performs their special kinematics algorithm to regenerate a hand model.

An app that can automatically recognise bird sounds is to be launched in time for spring, its creators have said.
The charismatic Australian bearded dragon changes colour in sync with its circadian rhythm, researchers have found.

We don’t think of ants and butterflies as big talkers. But critical conversations occur between Maculinea caterpillars and Myrmica ants. Ants carry the 2-week-old caterpillars into their nests, where the caterpillars mimic the sounds made by queen ants and so get red carpet treatment. In 2009, researchers discovered that worker and queen ants have distinct calls and that caterpillar intruders get more food, care, and protection than the ants’ own larvae.
Scared of the dark? Terrified of heights? Spiders make you scream? For the first time, a person's lifelong phobia has been completely abolished overnight. Unfortunately, it required removing a tiny bit of the man's brain, so for now, most people will have to find another way to dispel their fears.
Researchers have described a never-before-seen brain cell shape, which appears to have evolved to transmit signals more effectively.
New research from Canada finds trained musicians more efficiently switch from one mental task to another.
It’s not such a stretch to think that humans can catch the Ebola virus from monkeys and the flu virus from pigs. After all, they are all mammals with fundamentally similar physiologies. But now researchers have discovered that even a virus found in the lowly algae can make mammals its home.

“The British do not expect happiness,” claimed English writer Quentin Crisp – and it appears he may have been right.
The UK government’s comparison of international drug laws, published on Wednesday, represents the first official recognition since the 1971 Misuse of Drugs Act that there is no direct link between being “tough on drugs” and tackling the problem.
We accord rights to babies, the profoundly disabled and elderly people with dementia. Is Tommy the ape that different?
