Imagine a device that can create a gun for $25. Now imagine being able to fire eight shots from this novel gun. Wait, don’t stop there. What if you could create it? The alarming truth is you can. Click here to learn about the pros and cons of 3D printing!
Nasa's legendary Opportunity rover has broken a 40-year-old extraterrestrial distance record after nine years of hard Mars exploration. The tenacious six-wheeled robot has now travelled a record distance of 35.760 kilometre since landing on the red planet in 2004.
A scientist from Netherlands has genetically engineered a hamburger — made from billions of stem cells. Mark Post, head of physiology at Maastricht University in the Netherlands, grew synthetic hamburger from bovine stem cells, which his team turned into thin strips of muscle tissue before mincing it into a patty.
A team at Tel Aviv University and the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics has discovered an exoplanet using a new method that relies on Einstein’s special theory of relativity.
A study has shown that our brain often works on autopilot when it comes to grammar.
British billionaire Richard Branson said on Monday that rocket-powered space tourism flights by his firm Virgin Galactic would have only a minor impact on climate change.
A new analysis has suggested that a roughly 5.6-km-high Martian mound that scientists suspect preserves evidence of a massive lake might actually have formed as a result of the Red Planet's famously dusty atmosphere.
Nasa is sending a six feet-tall solar-powered rover prototype for ice exploration on highest part of Greenland's massive ice sheet. The space agency's newest scientific rover is set for testing in the highest part of Greenland, Nasa said.
Planet Saturn, known as 'Lord of the Rings', will be visible at its brightest in the sky today as it positions itself directly opposite the Sun. Due to its positioning, the planet will also be the closest it can get to Earth in the year 2013
An international team of researchers has for the first time observed a concrete hint of what physicists believe to be the particle behind dark matter and therefore nearly a quarter of the universe — a WIMP, or weakly interacting massive particle.
Scientists from the laboratory which created Dolly the cloned sheep have now produced a disease-resistant piglet using a new technique which is simpler than cloning, paving way for genetically modified meat.
Just like humans and apes, gelada baboons mimic each other’s facial expressions to show an emotional connection, a new study has found.
A Russian billionaire has unveiled plans to make humans immortal by converting them into 'Terminator-style' cyborgs - a creature that's part human and part machine - within the next three decades.
The poorly designed Y chromosome, which makes men is degrading rapidly and will disappear, even if humans are still around, Jenny Graves from Canberra University’s Institute for Applied Ecology, an evolutionary geneticist has claimed.
Astrophysicists have witnessed the rare event of a black hole awakening from its slumber to snack on a planet-sized object in a galaxy 47 million light years away, the University of Geneva said today.
