Indian-origin researchers have developed a process to turn human waste into biogas that could fuel rockets to ferry astronauts back to Earth.
Spanish researchers have devised a new method that ensures that information is shared quickly and effectively using Bluetooth technology.
Radio telescopes on Earth will beam 90,000 messages to Mars on Friday to commemorate the launch 50 years ago of the first robotic probe to visit the planet.
Harry Potter swoops around on his broom, faces the bully Malfoy and later runs into a three-headed dog. For scientists studying brain activity while reading, it's the perfect excerpt from the young wizard's many adventures to give their subjects.
Two new subatomic particles that could widen our understanding of the universe have been discovered, said scientists at CERN. The collaboration for the LHCb experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider discovered the particles belonging to the baryon family.
Robot probe Philae has uploaded a slew of last-minute data to Earth from a comet in deep space, before going to sleep at the conclusion of a historic exploration, ground controllers said.
The giant black hole at the center of the Milky Way may be producing mysterious particles called neutrinos, say NASA scientists.
With just a day or two left before the lander's primary battery is exhausted, scientists are considering what acrobatic maneuvers to risk in order to get the solar panels out of the shadows so they can keep Philae going for a few more months.
Scientists in Germany said the lander Philae failed to anchor to comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on landing, but still managed to send back scientific information. More would be known after Philae makes scheduled contact with Rosetta.
The European Space Agency has landed a probe on a comet, but an anchoring system problem may hamper planned investigations into the origins of Earth as well as the solar system.
Electrical engineers from the University of Washington in the Us have developed a way to automatically track people across moving and still cameras by using a technology that trains the networked cameras to learn one another's differences.
It's now a tense wait for scientists in Europe as robot lab Philae separated from mothership Rosetta Wednesday and began a crucial 7-hour descent to land on a comet for the first time in history.
In an operation fraught with peril, an unmanned science lab called Philae will detach from the European Space Agency scout Rosetta and descend to a comet 510 million kilometres (318 million miles) from Earth.
On this day 57 years ago, a Russian street dog named Laika became one of the first animals to go into space and the first creature to orbit the earth on board Soviet spacecraft Sputnik II.
You could now have a 3D tour of the International Space Station and experience how astronauts orbit in zero gravity while sitting in front of your computer at home.
