208 patients completed the course of treatment prescribed by the researchers. The mindfulness program involved 2,5 hour classes once a week. The results show that mindfulness exercises can be as effective as antidepressant drugs.
The company takes in batteries (from cars, laptops, phones, tablets, and other electronics) that are at the end of their useful life, then breaks them down and extracts metals like nickel, copper, cobalt, and lithium.
A recent study finds that the vast subsurface fracture networks in Gale crater would have provided water-rich and radiation-shielded conditions that were potentially more habitable than those on the surface.
In giant clusters of hundreds or thousands of galaxies, innumerable stars wander among the galaxies like lost souls, emitting a ghostly haze of light. These stars are not gravitationally tied to any one galaxy in a cluster.
Two exoplanets – Kepler-138 c and Kepler-138 d – appear to have oceans at least 1,600 km deep. That’s about 500 times deeper than the average depth of Earth’s oceans. However, they could be much warmer and under very high pressure.
Playing through the greenery and litter of a mini forest's undergrowth for just one month may be enough to change a child's immune system, according to an experiment in Finland.
NASA's Artemis 1 mission has returned to Earth following a successful trip around the moon. NASA will begin assessing all the data that the spacecraft collected on its 1.4 million-mile journey through space and begin preparing for Artemis II.
James Webb Space Telescope has captured light emitted by the galaxies more than 13.4 billion years ago, which means the galaxies date back to less than 400 million years after the Big Bang, when the universe was only 2 % of its current age.
An alloy of chromium, cobalt, and nickel has just given us the highest fracture toughness ever measured in a material on Earth.
Microscopic fragments of environmental DNA were found in Ice Age sediment in northern Greenland. Researchers discovered the fragments that are one million years older than the previous record for DNA.
Consistent exercise can change the very molecules in the human body that influence how genes behave, a new study of twins indicates.
Astronomers are now closer to a major technological upgrade. Australia has started construction of its portion of the Square Kilometer Array, a system that should become the world's largest radio telescope.
