Scientists at the University of California San Francisco have developed a bioreactor device that uses human kidney cells cultured in the laboratory and mimics some of the key functions of a kidney.
The most high-resolution map yet reveals something we previously never knew about: an ancient ocean floor that may wrap around the core. This thin but dense layer exists around 2,900 kilometers below the surface.
Astronomers detected the most distant galactic magnetic field so far. The galaxy is called 9io9. Its light has to travel travel more than 11 billion years to reach us, from a time when the universe was a young 2.5 billion years old.
Non-native species—displaced either by global trade and travel or by climate change—pose "a severe global threat" to local biodiversity, food security as well as public health, a new report has found.
The new discovery lends weight to the theory that the hominins first evolved in Europe before migrating to Africa 7–9 million years ago.
A newly discovered exoplanet has characteristics so peculiar that astronomers think it must have experienced a giant collision some time in its past.
The meteor from which these beads originated, known as IM1, disintegrated over the Pacific in 2014. Some of these spherules do not possess the chemical composition expected from objects in our Solar System.
Researchers from the University of Zurich and Intel have announced the creation of a unique autonomous unmanned system called Swift. It is powered by artificial intelligence and is capable of outperforming humans in FPV drone race.
Between 2016 and 2018, physicists recorded more than 100 rare, unstable hypernuclei – atomic cores that contain an unusual flavor of quark in one of their nuclear particles.
Scientists have successfully induced rhabdomyosarcoma cells to transform into normal, healthy muscle cells. It's a breakthrough that could lead to similar breakthroughs for other types of human cancers.
In two separate cases, scientists have successfully used brain implants and machine learning to give patients back their voice after theirs was taken.
Now, for the first time, we have observed a Neptune Storm with Earth-based instruments in unprecedented resolution.
Scientists have taken an important step forward in understanding the human genome - our genetic blueprint - by fully deciphering the enigmatic Y chromosome present in males, an achievement that could help guide research on infertility in men.
