Volcanic activity did not play a direct role in the mass extinction event that killed the dinosaurs, according to an international team of researchers. It was all about the asteroid.
In 2018, a large number of seismic alerts had been detected everywhere. They created a weird buzzing sound. Now the mysterious hum is identified as rumblings of a magma-filled reservoir deep under the Indian ocean where the new volcano is forming.
Scientists have uncovered a new kind of electrical process in the human brain that could play a key role in the unique way our brains compute.Researchers have discovered that certain cells in the human cortex transmit signals in a way not seen before.
A new study shows that heat energy can leap across a few hundred nanometers of a complete vacuum, thanks to a quantum mechanical phenomenon called the Casimir interaction. It could have profound implications for the design of computer chips.
A surprising new study shows that heat energy can leap across a few hundred nanometers of a complete vacuum, thanks to a quantum mechanical phenomenon. It could have profound implications for the design of computer chips and other nanoscale electronic components.
A new method, the result of decades of research, has allowed researchers to suppress vacuum noise and extend the reach of the gravitational wave detectors.
Latest studies showed that bacteria-infecting viruses called bacteriophages, or simply phages, could kill different strains of the bacterium E. coli by making mutations in a viral protein that bound to host cells.
Earlier this year, US team announced they had grown a mini-brain with neural activity similar to that seen in a preterm infant. The ability to feel or experience the world around them, may be just around the corner — and all the ethical implications it brings.
A team of Israel researchers revealed the 3D printed heart that completely matches the immunological, cellular, biochemical and anatomical properties of a human patient.
This quantum battery is a tiny, nano-size battery meant to be used for applications on the nano scale but the research provides a theoretical demonstration that creating a loss-free quantum battery is possible.
An international team of scientists have found a new compound of plutonium with an unexpected, pentavalent oxidation state This new phase of plutonium is solid and stable, and may be a transient phase in radioactive waste repositories.
