The most distant dying galaxy discovered so far, more massive than our Milky Way — with more than a trillion stars — has revealed that the ‘cores’ of these systems had formed already 1.5 billion years after the Big Bang, about 1 billion years earlier than previous measurements revealed.
New light-sensitive material could eliminate some of the endoscopic procedures needed to remove gastrointestinal devices.
Manufacturing prescription drugs with distinct markings, colors, shapes or packaging isn’t enough to protect them from counterfeiting, U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration reports have shown.
Physicists are using gravitational lensing to take the temperature of dark matter, the mysterious substance that makes up about a quarter of our universe.
Feeling excessively tired, devoid of energy, demoralized, and irritable? You may have burnout, a syndrome associated with a potentially deadly heart rhythm disturbance.
Drawing an object and naming it engages the brain in similar ways, according to research recently published in JNeurosci. The finding demonstrates the importance of the visual processing system for producing drawings of an object.
A new study concludes that rail is the industry that’s injected the most money into climate change denial propaganda efforts in the last 25 years.
Activity in this circuit predicted which animals would keep drinking despite negative consequences.
Researchers are investigating whether an anti-itch medication that targets a specific part of our nerve cells can make morphine — which targets a different part–more effective. The findings suggest it can.
The recently discovered protein is normally abundant in fat; without it, the body struggles to manage glucose and insulin.
Scientists have shown that a type of foam long studied by scientists is able to block particular wavelengths of light, a coveted property for next-generation information technology that uses light instead of electricity.
Researchers are first to combine 3D climate modeling with atmospheric chemistry to explore the habitability of planets around M dwarf stars, which comprise about 70% of the total galactic population.
Astronomers detected a giant planet orbiting a small star. The planet has much more mass than theoretical models predict.
EPFL scientists have developed a soft artificial skin that provides haptic feedback and – thanks to a sophisticated self-sensing mechanism – has the potential to instantaneously adapt to a wearer’s movements.
Algorithm enables one audio signal to glide into another, recreating the ‘portamento’ effect of some musical instruments.
