It will be challenging for us to nurture and grow plants when we finally start a colony on the red planet. Researchers on the international space station made an exciting discovery that might make things a little easier
Researchers believe have pinpointed the molecular-level mechanisms that control key biochemical interactions linked to devastating illnesses such as cancer and Alzheimer's - Providing a potential foundation for future treatments
Nuclear fusion has enormous potential and offers the possibility to solve our energy problems, but how far are we with its development? Here's a brief look at some of the issues that scientists encountered
Scientists from Canada and the UK studied the walking patterns of older adults in order to see whether they could use that information to help in more precisely diagnosing several types of cognitive decline and uncovered some interesting findings.
When we think about protecting our environment, we often think of what lives above the land; we think of the trees, the wildlife on our moorlands, and removing plastic from our oceans. But we need to start looking further down, to what truly lies beneath our feet and beyond what our eyes can see; we need to look to what inhabits our soils.
Unintentional shootings of unarmed people sometimes occur because the person wielding a gun instinctively (and incorrectly) assumed that others bear arms too. A team of researchers from Colorado State University conducted an experiment to uncover this so-called 'gun bias'
Ever heard a strange noise and immediately start scouring the room with your eyes looking for it? It’s an instinctual response, so you’ve probably never given it much thought. But our eyes love to move in the same direction as our hearing for a good reason.
Can you spot a liar? Although almost all of us tell a lie once in a while, we are remarkably bad at consistently and accurately spotting them. A team of researchers developed a unique technique to identify liars.
If we aim for a sustainable colony of Mars, we will need to learn how to 'live off the land.' One key component is the quandary regarding oxygen production. Researchers may have found a way to reliably produce oxygen in an energy-efficient manner.
Researchers took a look at the third Gaia space telescope data release. They uncovered several exciting phenomena, including evidence for a significant event that took place relatively recently in our home galaxy. Moreover, astronomers were able to clearly observe our home galaxy's outer side for the first time.
Flowing rivers are probably not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Greenland and its seemingly endless amount of frozen vistas. Nonetheless, scientists uncovered that there might be a substantially large one underneath the surface, flowing from deep in its interior all the way to the northeastern coast.
The so-called diabolical ironclad beetle, formally known as Nosoderma Diabolicum, is an incredible little critter that can withstand loads thousands of times larger than its body weight. Scientists are looking into mimicking this feat in new materials.
You might not have given it any thought before, but the strength of someone's handshake can provide you with more information than you might think. It turns out that grip strength is a good indicator of a person's health and genuine physical age. Moreover, a weaker than average grip can be an indicator of several hidden health issues.
