The star system AR Scorpii (AR Sco) lies in the constellation of Scorpius, 380 light years from Earth.
The Great Red Spot produces two kinds of turbulent energy waves that collide and heat the upper atmosphere
Scientists new "haptic" motor space boots will stop astronauts from tripping over obstacles with vibrations
Desalination of seawater by reverse osmosis is also a potential source of fresh water, but is not applicable for landlocked countries
Self-healing technology will help make chemically protective suits that may prevent farmers from exposure to pesticides
NASA's Dawn spacecraft arrived to orbit Ceres in March 2015 and mission scientists expected to find a heavily-cratered body.
Scientists investigating evidence of water in Martian soil have found that the bulk of Mars soil likely contains iron sulfates
Glasses-free 3D already exists but not in a way that scales to movie theatres.
NASA believe that digitising mission data would ensure that crucial information regarding Mars is not lost due to the data being in microfilm form.
Perovskite is relatively easy to process and, therefore, cheaper to manufacture, but also has an efficiency of 22 per cent, close to currently used silicon-based cells' 25 per cent.
The researchers found that the new species shared many features with the other species, it had distinctive facial features not previously seen amongst megaraptorids.
Perovskite, in comparison to silicon-based cells, is easier and cheaper to process and also produces an efficiency close to that of silicon.
Computers must be replaced every few years, and each time the information must be copied over. It would be much better if it could be stored in DNA — the stuff our genes are made of.
The Aquarius Reef Base is located 62 feet below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary.
The satellite will be useful for variety of applications like natural resources mapping and monitoring, assessing soil moisture, etc
The goal of the research to be done in the NASA Translational Research Centre is to produce promising new approaches, treatments, countermeasures or technologies that have practical application to spaceflight.
The method requires far less time and hardware than existing eye capture techniques because it employs a parametric model of the eye.
The camera can take a short video clip of the sperm which can then be uploaded to a computer for further analysis to see if it meets the key indicators of male fertility.
Clipped on to the camera of a smartphone, the lens magnifies an image by 555 times - perfect for looking at sperm cells, New Scientist reported.
The genes of the ant farmers and their fungal crops revealed a surprisingly ancient history of mutual adaptations.
"While the El Nino event in the tropical Pacific this winter gave a boost to global temperatures from October onwards, it is the underlying trend which is producing these record numbers," Gavin Schmidt, Director, Goddard Institute for Space Studies, said.
The organic molecules discovered by a group of Harvard scientists can easily be made from vitamin B2 molecules and provide for cost-saving methods of energy storage.
Free-space optical communications offers a promising way to bring the internet to areas where optical fibres and cell towers can be challenging to deploy in a cost-effective way.
Just like regular fingerprints, a person's browser fingerprint - "browserprint" can be used to identify online user behaviour.
A DNA sequencer reveals the order of chemical building blocks along a stretch of DNA. Among other things, that can be useful to identify and study viruses.
NASA have said that with current and future missions, they are looking to explore many 'promising' and 'uncharted' worlds
SpaceX successfully launched a critical space station docking port for NASA today, according to reports.
OSIRIS-REx will help unlock secrets of the history of our solar system, and shed light on how life may have come to be on our planet
SpaceX tried to deliver one international docking adapter last year, but the equipment was destroyed during a launch accident
Scientists at Georgia's Institute of Technology have designed a new algorithm that replicates human-like motions in the robot
The analysis uncovered features of the genetic code underlying brain development in our close evolutionary relative, while revealing distinct features of human brain development by comparison.
"We are creating a branded generics platform in North America and expanding our biologics play in Russia, CIS and other emerging markets," K Satish Reddy said.
Nasa does not have a replacement for the Plutonium-238 to power its spacecrafts yet
A new study has now said that when the asteroid hit the oil-rich region of Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, a massive amount of soot was ejected which then spread globally.
Although the device is not an invisibility cloak yet, this practical demonstration could result in a step-change in how antennas are tethered to their platform.
Though the idea seems ambitious, ESA believes the science is sound and it should work.
