Researchers have found a building material that is older than dinosaurs, responsible for some of the world's biggest structures.
Researchers have come closer to understanding how water came to Earth. Some samples of meteorites were found to have abundant hydrogen and oxygen quantities, that led scientists to their observations.
An excavation in Nigeria, a part of sub-Saharan Africa, has found evidence of the earliest glass manufacturing.
New evidence has shown researchers that the neutron star merger, which helped conclusively detect gravitational waves, is releasing more complex radiations then previously imagined.
New research has shown that tropical forests may be more sensitive to climate change than previously thought. Their study relates a rise in flower production to rising greenhouse gas emissions.
Scientists have introduced a system that can help objects levitate. Using sound waves to make objects stably 'float' in air is an exciting possibility, say researchers.
Researchers have created skin tattoos, which can help us control electronic deices thruogh basic hand gestures.
Researchers believe that the change in Mercury's orbit around the Sun could be because the mass of our star is decreasing.
Researchers have developed an algorithm for constructing convolutional neural networks that can be used with conventional mobile phones to record the muons making up these atmospheric showers.
The US government's shutdown means that SpaceX will not be able to test-fire its Falcon Heavy rocket.
"Despite colder than average temperatures in any one part of the world, temperatures over the planet as a whole continue the rapid warming trend we've seen over the last 40 years," said GISS Director Gavin Schmidt
NASA is planning a mission that could send a nuclear fission reactor to Mars. This would be able to generate enough electricity to set up an outpost on the Red Planet.
The last in a series of three supermoons will take place on January 31, NASA said in a report. Given that it would be the second new moon of the month, the lunar eclipse is being keenly anticipated.
Researchers have developed a fuel cell that costs less than $1, and can detect contaminated water samples, that reduces the risk of water-borne infections.
Researchers have introduced a telescopic camera into the No 2 reactor of the Fukushima nuclear power plant, to see if the reactor has suffered extensive damage following the 2011 leak.
Microsoft has created an artist bot, based on artificial intelligence. This bot will enable users to create images from an object's textual description.
Researchers have been able to develop nanosized chips, a development that will enable smaller and faster computer and smartphone processors.
A new study suggests that microwaves could release emissions comparable to those released by cars throughout their life cycle.
The asteroid, 2002 AJ149, is on a trajectory towards our planet, though it is expected to miss the surface by 4.18 million kms.
Scientists at the European Southern Observatory have detcted an invisible black hole, which was found with a star revolving around it.
ISRO's recently launched Cartosat-2 satellite became operational, and beamed back its first images from Indore.
Researchers have been able to use 3D printing technology to develop scaffolds, that can help in tissue regeneration procedures.
2018 will see private companies SpaceX and Boeing launch manned space shuttles, in an attempt by the private sector to provide more commercial impetus to space travel.
Scientists have tested robotic baby to find that infants inhale 20 times more dust than adults, but also show that early exposure to dust reduces possibility of developing asthma.
Researchers have made use of a catalyst, based on copper, that can convert carbon dioxide to plastic, and minimises methane production.
Researchers have been able to create a computer that checks security of quantum computers before interacting with them.
The reconstructed version of a dinosaur skull, enabled through 3D pringting, has helped researchers understand more about their bodily features and functions.
Researchers have created a 'neuromorphic' chip, which can function like the human brain, and will be able to run devices under Internet of Things.
Researchers have created a dry adhesive, that can enable robots to walk on walls, just like geckos and lizards.
NASA has introduced a 3-minute video of the Orion Nebula, created through photos and data, that give stargazers a unique view of the universe.
A Stanford University test on reading and comprehension saw an Alibaba-created artificial intelligence system outscore a human.
Unlike many other diagnostic tests, like those for blood samples or urine for example, ECG reports do not contain numerical values that can be compared to standard healthy values
Pune-based BAIF Development Research Foundation (BDRF) has embarked on a project to produce semen that increases the probability of birth of cows and she-buffaloes to 92 per cent
Study raises alarm over near-total feminisation of green sea turtles in one of the world’s largest turtle colonies in Australia, says climate change is the cause
SpaceX's Dragon cargo spacecraft splashed down in the Pacific Ocean on Saturday after nearly four weeks in space.
The size of each planet's orbit appears to be a ratio of the other orbits, suggesting that all five planets originally formed together in a smooth, rotating disc, and over eons migrated closer in towards their star.
