The world’s governments urgently need to bear down on heating and transportation, where most of the energy is being consumed. Energy systems need to be rapidly electrified and integrated.
A new type of computer memory promises to transform daily life with its ultra-low energy consumption, allowing computers which do not need to boot up and which could sleep between key strokes.
New research by a team of UK scientists has located the site of the massive impact that took place in Scotland 1.2 billion years ago. Roughly one billion years ago, Earth experienced a higher rate of meteorite impact than it does today.
NASA is testing out a new inflatable heat shield which could enable them to send heavier missions to Mars, as well as Venus and Titan.
There are at least 34,000 pieces of large debris in Low Earth Orbit. Now spanish scientists has come up with a simple but elegant idea: equip future satellites with a tether system so they can de-orbit themselves at the end of their lives.
An international team of researchers recently detected two new Earth-like planets orbiting Teegarden’s Star, an M-type (red dwarf) star located just 12.5 light-years from the Solar System in the direction of the Aries constellation.
Breakthrough Listen is an astronomical program which surveys the universe in an attempt to track down alien life. Its data were recently offered to prestigious astrophysics journals, and the amount of information is quite impressive.
A mysterious large mass of material has been discovered beneath the largest crater in our solar system - the Moon's South Pole - Aitken basin and may contain metal from the asteroid that crashed into the Moon and formed the crater.
Scientists offer a solution to the fast-approaching physical minimum for transistor size: a multi-value logic transistor based on zinc oxide, capable of two stable intermediate states between 0 and 1.
Researchers have clarified one of the mysteries of 2018 in the field of extragalactic astrophysics: the supposed existence of a galaxy without dark matter. New results show that the galaxy is "normal" with dark matter present.
Researchers have assessed a range of possible scenarios regarding the rate of climate change in 173 African cities for the years 2030, 2060 and 2090. Their results show that a third of African city-dwellers could be affected by deadly heat waves in 2090.
Large parts of Asian Russia could become habitable by the late 21st century due to climate change, new research has found. Scientists used current and predicted climate scenarios to examine the climate comfort of Asian Russia.
The European Very Large Telescope participated in test coordinated by the International Asteroid Warning Network, successfully targeting, tracking and imaging a double asteroid as it flew within 5.2 million km of Earth on 25 May.
Accounting for the buildup of toxic gases predicted to occur in the atmospheres of most planets narrows the habitable zone for complex life by half and, in some cases, rules it out altogether, the study concludes.
