Mangalyaan will be inserted into the Mars orbit after 200 days after which it will carry out scientific experiments, says Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). "MOM is now 21 million kilometers away from earth, travelling with a helio-centric velocity of 29 km/s."
Researchers at University of Surrey have worked together with scientists from Philips to develop the ' Source-Gated-Transistor' (SGT) - a simple circuit component invented jointly by the teams.
French scientists said on Monday they had revived a giant but harmless virus that had been locked in the Siberian permafrost for more than 30,000 years.
Researchers are reportedly working on a technology that will allow people to share scents with their friends through a device called the "oPhone".
Researchers, including those of Indian-origin, have proposed a variety of innovative methods that can add a strong second layer of security to your password, protecting it from hackers.
Scientists have developed a new battery that consumes sugar to generate electricity enough to power a smartphone for 10 days at a time. The new bio-battery gets its efficiency by using a novel system of enzymes.
Chinese scientists plan to build a faster electron-positron collider to speed up the exploration of the Higgs boson, a particle that explains the existence of mass and holds the key to understanding the universe.
Scientists, including one of Indian-origin, have developed the first gesture recognition system that can be implemented for less than a dollar and does not require a battery.
A student at Sweden's Umea Institute of Design has designed Ero - a robot that recycles concrete in an energy-efficient manner and separates it from rebar and other debris on the spot.
Nasa's Curiosity Mars rover has completed a 100.3 metres backwards drive over the Martian terrain - the longest one-day trek in more than three months. The reverse drive was carried out on February 18 over relatively smooth and benign ground.
Scientists have developed a new tool to search and fetch electronic files that saves users time by quickly identifying and retrieving the most relevant information on computers and hand-held devices.
Engineering students have developed a new electronic musical instrument ' Aura', which can create music by making hand gestures in the air.
A new holographic memory device can provide unprecedented data storage capacity and data processing capabilities in electronic devices like computer, pen drive or cell phone.
Researchers have taken a step closer to capture the kinetic energy of our everyday movements, such as walking, and to convert it into electrical energy.
New research shows that both how much and how well parents talk with babies and toddlers helps tune the youngsters' brains in ways that build crucial language and vocabulary skills - a key to fighting the infamous word gap that puts poor children at a disadvantage at an even younger age than once thought.
