FUTURE SPACE TOURISTS MIGHT HAVE TO TRAIN BEFORE THEIR TRIPS
Space travel is rough on the body.
PREHISTORIC SEA MONSTER WAS NEARLY THE SIZE OF A BLUE WHALE
About 205 million years ago, a ginormous sea monster — so large it was nearly the size of a modern blue whale — swam through the ocean, fueling its colossal body by preying on prehistoric squid and fish, a new study finds.
WEIRD NEUTRINOS CAN'T QUITE EXPLAIN MATTER'S HUGE RIDDLE YET
Deep below a mountain in Italy, in the coldest cubic meter of the known universe, scientists are hunting for evidence that ghostly particles called neutrinos act as their own antimatter partners.
MYSTERY OF THE CORAL CASTLE EXPLAINED
In Homestead, Fla., not far from Miami and off the South Dixie Highway, sits a world-famous structure called the Coral Castle.
SCIENTISTS JUST SUCCESSFULLY STORED QUANTUM INFORMATION 10,000 TIMES LONGER THAN EVER BEFORE
One of the challenges in quantum communications is extending how long entangled particles can hold information. Researchers from the Australian National University may have found a way to do this using erbium crystals.
A NATURAL MOLECULE HAS BEEN SHOWN TO STOP CANCER CELLS FROM PRODUCING ENERGY
Researchers have discovered that a naturally occurring molecule can target the metabolic process of cancerous cells without affecting healthy cells. This may give oncologists a way to attack cancer that doesn't involve the cells' genetic makeup.
PHYSICS: A PERFECT CLONE IS IMPOSSIBLE
MinutePhysics explores the impossibility of true cloning. Though it is possible to create genetic copies of an organism it is physically impossible to create an exact copy down to the quantum level.
STAR 'DNA' SURVEY COULD REUNITE THE SUN WITH ITS LONG-LOST SIBLINGS
Is the sun due for a cosmic family reunion?
A new survey of 1 million stars in the Milky Way galaxy could help astronomers link our sun to its long-lost siblings.
NEANDERTHAL ART WAS FAR BETTER THAN PREVIOUSLY THOUGHT AS SCIENTISTS FIND THEY MADE EARLIEST CAVE PAINTINGS
"Neanderthal" has become an insult for someone lacking in culture and refinement.
TOILET PAPER POWER: HOW USED BATHROOM TISSUE (YUCK) COULD GENERATE ELECTRICITY
Are we flushing away a greener future?
Perhaps, according to scientists who found a way to turn used toilet paper into electricity.
