In what could be a game changer in space exploration, NASA has successfully tested a "microwave thruster system" that requires no propellant to generate thrust.
The US space agency's Opportunity rover has now clocked more miles on Mars than any man-made vehicle to reach another celestial body, NASA has said.
"I'm going to open things, climb trees and do all that other stuff that everybody does," said Pring, a resident of Groveland, outside of Orlando, who was able to give his mother his first two-armed hug.
Early risers are more likely to cheat and behave unethically in the night hours, scientists, including one of Indian-origin, have found.
On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on the moon. To send humans to deep space, NASA engineers are developing a new space transportation capability destined to travel far beyond Earth.
Researchers are developing new display sensors for smartphones that will read the user's spit to not only detect the body temperature, but also analyze the DNA.
A future in which it is difficult to tell man and machine apart could soon become reality, scientists say, after recent robotic breakthroughs in Japan.
Researchers, including one of Indian-origin, have developed a novel glass surface that can provide anti-glare, anti-reflective display for your smartphone, allowing you to use the device in bright light.
In what could make 3D imaging studies more efficient, saving time, money and resources across many areas of experimental biology, researchers have developed a software to digitally navigate three-dimensional images.
In a new discovery, researchers have found that lasers can safely replace years old quartz technology used in wristwatches or to transmit reliable signals to radios.
What if humidity in the air can be used to power your smartphones or iPads? With new findings that water droplets can generate small amounts of electricity, this appears possible in near future.
German scientists are developing a new sensor that attaches to a smartphone and measures particulate matter or fine dust levels in the air to draw up a pollution map.
Researchers have created a new approach to develop personalised gene therapies for patients with retinitis pigmentosa (RP), a leading cause of vision loss.
What if your old smartphone could hide in a forest, listen to poachers and illegal loggers and report incidents directly to the authorities?
Researchers have developed a radiation detecting device that can scan radiation levels in their living environment and is smaller than a golf ball, portable and inexpensive.
