Graphene quantum dots drawn from common coal may be the basis for an effective antioxidant for people who suffer traumatic brain injuries, strokes or heart attacks.
Physicists have developed an amazingly simple device that allows heat to flow temporarily from a cold to a warm object without an external power supply. Intriguingly, the process initially appears to contradict the fundamental laws of physics.
The study has uncovered parts of our genetic code that could be responsible for causing poor sleep quality.
Astronomers have taken the first ever image of a black hole, which is located in a distant galaxy.
Can water reach minus 263 degrees Celsius without turning into ice? Yes it can, say researchers, if it is confined in nanometer-scale lipid channels.
Paleontologists have just reported the world’s biggest Tyrannosaurus rex and the largest dinosaur skeleton ever found in Canada. The 13-metre-long T. rex, nicknamed ‘Scotty,’ lived in prehistoric Saskatchewan 66 million years ago.
Asking patients to recall unpleasant memories shortly before being knocked out created more difficulty in recalling those memories the next day.
A new 3D printing technique can replicate complex structures using projections of light into a special resin.
Instead of throwing away your broken boots or cracked toys, why not let them fix themselves? Researchers have developed 3D-printed rubber materials that can do just that.
While common in everyday life, the science behind this phenomenon is not well understood.
The strange rotating circle resembles a UFO or a moon.
During the formation of a black hole a bright burst of energetic light is produced called a gamma-ray burst. Researchers have built the POLAR instrument to analyze GRBs. The first results reveal that high energy photons coming from GRBs are neither completely chaotic, nor completely organized, but a mixture of the two.
A recent study has shown that religious fundamentalism is partly the result of a functional impairment in the prefrontal cortex, where damage to particular areas may indirectly promote religious fundamentalism by diminishing cognitive flexibility and openness.
A super-Earth known as Barnard b might be far more habitable than previously thought.
It’s very small and very cool.
