GETTING WARMER...

Researchers around the world are racing to produce a material that, at room temperature, conducts electricity without losing energy to resistance. This new paper sets the temperature-to-beat at -23 Celsius or -9.67 Fahrenheit — technically room temperature, if you were to open the window during polar vortex conditions in the Midwest.
EAR CANDY

Scientists explore the limits of physics by pumping energy into components of atoms, such as electrons and protons, accelerating them to nearly the speed of light, and slamming the beams of particles together in hopes of discovering something new. You can imagine that this process gets quite noisy.
HOW... INNOVATIVE

The new missile, which has never been acknowledged publicly before today, is called the R9X and is a variant of the Hellfire missile. But unlike a traditional Hellfire, the R9X is designed with six long blades that only emerge from the missile seconds before impact.
A TECHNO COLOR DREAM

For years we've been saddled with the same old spectrum, but the right skull implant might conceivably reveal a whole new one, its colors indescribable until we see them, and name them. But can even the finest brain chip reveal a new color?
GEARING UP FOR 'THE BIG ONE'

NASA, FEMA, and other national and international agencies are once again gearing up for a hypothetical asteroid impact preparedness scenario. They hope to learn the best strategies for responding to a potential strike, starting from the moment a threatening asteroid is first detected by astronomers.
THE AGE OF THE OPTICAL

On top it didn't look much different than its predecessors — it still had a few buttons and a scroll wheel — but underneath it introduced a technology to the masses that brought an end to the prehistoric days of cleaning dirt and grime out of computer mice.
THE REAL MVP

When it comes to Apple's current phone lineup, the iPhone XS and XS Max get most of the attention thanks to features like dual cameras, more luxurious designs, and vivid OLED screens. But the iPhone XR is Apple's true winner.
