Jamie Edwards made history when he built a working nuclear fusion reactor at school The moment came on 5 March last year, when Jamie Edwards, then 13, flicked the switch and waited with bated breath. that
NYU Professor: The Digital Age Is Destroying The US Middle Class And There's Little Hope For Reversing The Cycle
NYU business school professor and consultant Scott Galloway believes US society is telling itself a lie: That technology is good for everyone. He believes that the "digital age" has clear winners and losers.
In another breakthrough in the weird, wonky world of quantum physics, researchers teleport data an unprecedented distance with a novel technique -- inching us closer to the rise of a 'quantum Internet.'
Making alternative energy cheaper and more reliable You could call it a rainy-day fund. A team of MIT researchers has built an all-liquid battery prototype that's designed to store excess energy from and
Will you be watching for the Northern Lights? Share your photos with CNN iReport. (CNN) — Youvathana Sok looked up and saw more than just stars in the crisp, clear Maine night sky. A colorful, spectacular
Flipping your fins actually does get you pretty far. The old idiom about “being a fish out of water” just lost some of its luster. Researchers from McGill University in Canada successfully trained a group
Maybe we were mistaken about Earth's mantle, the layer of our rocky planet that lies between its core and the thin crust on which we live. For years, earth scientists were convinced that the mantle's lower
From the aerospace sector to Silicon Valley, engineering has a retention problem: Close to 40 percent of women with engineering degrees either leave the profession or never enter the field. Conventional
Humans may be smart because energy once devoted to brawn was given up for brains, researchers say. The most powerful computer known is the brain. The human brain possesses about 100 billion neurons with
The electrochemical jelly inside your head contains something like one quadrillion synapses, the junctions at which nerve cells talk to one other by converting electrical signals into chemical ones and
Quantum teleportation promises a leap into the next great era of computing -- but first we've got to get it working consistently. Scientists at the Kavli Institute of Nanoscience Delft say they've managed
What can we learn from people with genetic predispositions to a disease who never end up getting sick? The X-Men’s mutations gave them superpowers. Telepathy. Flight. Teleportation. Some scientists believe
Those of you who are seeking investing enlightenment are not going to find much of it on the web. I suggest you log off, power down your computer, and read some books. Take your time. The months you spend
Gettin' the paperwork done for commercial flights into space Virgin Galactic is in the clear, so to speak. The commercial spaceflight company has signed an agreement with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration
