Microbes screened with a new microfluidic process might be used in power generation or environmental cleanup.
Climate-driven changes in phytoplankton communities will intensify the blue and green regions of the world’s oceans.
Number of proton-neutron pairs determine how fast the particles move, results suggest.
Seeing Higgs boson decay may help physicists understand why the universe has mass.
MIT researchers find that 1–2 percent of Earth’s oldest mantle rocks are made from diamond. rnrn
Results are among the strongest evidence yet for “spooky action at a distance.”rnrn
Signals from rare black hole-neutron star pairs could pinpoint rate at which universe is growing, researchers say.
New principled approach helps autonomous underwater vehicles explore the ocean in an intelligent, energy-efficient manner.
Black holes in these environments could combine repeatedly to form objects bigger than anything a single star could produce.
Scientists pick up signals from an explosion of electromagnetic energy that occurred when a black hole ripped apart a passing star.
The scientists have traced the signals to just 180 million years after the Big Bang, making the detection the earliest evidence of hydrogen yet observed.
A significant hangup on the way to portable artificial intelligence has been the neural synapse, which has been particularly tricky to reproduce in hardware. Until now.
Scientists have broaden the criteria for what makes a planet hospitable. Researchers dispute that even if a planet were tilted on its side, it could sustain life, so long as its surface is covered in water.
