Come for the hard science. Stay for the bonkers footage of tires getting blasted with fire.
Joe Barnard has spent the last three years pioneering DIY landing technologies for amateur rockets and now the aerospace industry is paying attention.
"Our earliest ancestor was finally identified after traces of cholesterol were found on it, the blood fat that proves it is an animal, not a plant or other life form... Scientists have described the game-changing discovery as the 'Holy Grail' of palaeontology."
Silicon Valley millionaire Serge Faguet hopes to "live for millions of years and explore other planets" and thinks pills, injections and implants will turn him into a superhuman. Could they?
If we wish to colonize another world, finding a planet with a gravitational field that humans can survive and thrive under will be crucial. If its gravity is too strong our blood will be pulled down into our legs, our bones might break, and we could even be pinned helplessly to the ground.
Did the octopus evolve its unique intelligence by playing fast and free with the genetic code?
A visual prank exposes an Achilles' heel of computer vision systems: Unlike humans, they can't do a double take.
We don't see, hear, smell, touch or taste time. And yet we somehow measure it.
In the latest edition of "could this happen," scientists have published a new study that weighs building massive berms to protect receding Antarctic glaciers.
The ingredients in spot treatments are proven to reduce inflammation and kill acne bacteria, but they need weeks and months of consistent application over the entire affected area to work their magic.
Scientists have finally confirmed that a weird ribbed oval called Dickinsonia is an animal.
The human and octopus lineages split 500 million years ago, but apparently we both retained the gene for partying.
So much damage was done after Florence had already passed through and dissipated, with river levels continuing to surge over the course of this week.
Hurricane Florence, for instance, is a storm that approaches the size of France.
It's difficult to test whether poverty relief actually works. Do randomized controlled trials provide a scientific measure?
On a typical weekday, researcher Elizabeth Head spends almost seven hours watching a dozen beagles play with colored blocks.
The number of physics problems hidden in "Star Wars" movies is much greater than you think.
“This is happening. It’s not going to go away.”
The convergence of computer science and biology has the potential to yield new perspectives on fundamental biological problems.
The team tested their device by recording themselves singing "Mary Had a Little Lamb"
That's our best stuff for today. Great job! Read more
