The tiny pieces of junk orbiting the Earth could have a major impact on space exploration. Not everything we send into space comes back down. In fact, there are millions of pieces of junk, ranging from
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (Reuters) - A high-flying science experiment may color the skies above the U.S. mid-Atlantic coast with bluish green and red clouds on Sunday evening, as NASA seeks to learn more charged
An anomaly in the tiny magnetic field of a fundamental particle could be the loose thread that lets us unravel a new layer of physics. A new experiment has started to take a closer look A new experiment
Changing Planet To celebrate Mother’s Day, a few enchanting moments captured by National Geographic Photo Ark photographer Joel Sartore of mothers and their babies. The interaction between animals and
Physicists create mind-bending 'negative mass' that accelerates backwards and could help explain black holes
Scientists have created a fluid with "negative mass" which they claim can be used to explore some of the more challenging concepts of the cosmos. Washington State University physicists explained that mass,
However, the Earth may not have always been set up like this. New research from the University of Maryland, Curtin University and the Geological Survey of Western Australia suggests the Earth's first layer
Kinda like Wolverine. Much like a gas-powered car, the human body relies on carbon-based fuels for energy. But for automobile engines and our cellular engines alike, burning carbon has intrinsic inefficiencies.
In a post published last week, Adam Frank argued for the importance of public facts, and of science as a method for ascertaining them. He emphasized the role of agreement in establishing public facts,
Does that mean the original research was wrong? No. It means science is really, really hard. Replication has emerged as a powerful tool to check science and get us closer to the truth. Researchers take
Marking another milestone for a changing planet, scientists reported on Wednesday that the Earth reached its highest temperature on record in 2016, trouncing a record set only a year earlier, which beat
As well as on Parkinson's and other neurodegenerative diseases. Scientists know that the proteins in our bodies can sometimes fold and form clumps called amyloids, which lead to neurodegenerative diseases.
The new cells, it turns out, continued to fire when the landing site was hidden from the bats' view by a curtain. “The bats knew where the goal was, but could not echolocate or see the goal behind the
This stunning photograph released by NASA has quite the story to tell about worlds colliding in galaxies far, far away. Named IRAS 14348-1447 (partially for its discoverer, the Infrared Astronomical Satellite),
The gene-editing tool’s potential to upend science is dizzying. We’re about to enter a golden age of genetic engineering, where huge advances in gene-editing technology are making it possible for scientists
