Scientists led by an Indian researcher, Harminder Dua, have discovered a previously unknown layer lurking in the human eye. The newfound body part, dubbed Dua's layer, is a skinny but tough structure measuring just 15 microns thick.
Scientists have developed a new robot that replicates normal human foot movements more closely than ever before. Researchers designing adult bipedal robots have faced a challenge in limitations in a robot’s walking pattern.
Researchers have discovered a newflying dinosaur in China — roughly the same size as a chicken — that lived about 150 million years ago.The creature was about 20 inches long. It had teeth and probably fed on insects, researchers said.
A team of astronomers, engineers, and physicists from the University of Hawaii, the University of Freiburg, and elsewhere has proposed a new and powerful technique to search for intelligent life.
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.
