Researchers working off the coast of Mexico have discovered evidence of arsenic-breathing life in oxygen-starved waters. These resilient microbes could also be a sign of things to come under the influence of climate change.
In a major medical breakthrough, Tel Aviv University researchers have "printed" the world's first 3D heart. Engineered heart completely matches the immunological, cellular, biochemical and anatomical properties of the patient.
Gentle jolts of alternating current to the brain restored the waning working memories of older adults (aged 60 to 76 years old) to performance levels seen in younger adults (aged 20 to 29)—at least for a little under an hour.
An international team of researchers have uncovered the remains of a new species of human in the Philippines. The new species, Homo luzonensis is named after Luzon Island, were more than 50,000 year old fossils were found.
After years of work, researchers in the UK have now cultivated one of the most sophisticated miniature brains-in-a-dish yet, and it actually managed to behave strange by spontaneously connecting itself to the nearby tissue.
A pulse of laser light resulted in a stable "supercrystal" created by a team of U.S. researchers. The team's goal is to discover interesting states of matter that do not exist in equilibrium in nature.
U.S. researchers have discovered that a high-strength polymer called "PBDT" has a rare double helix structure, opening possibilities for use in a variety of applications, for instance lightweight aerospace materials.
