Researchers have developed a new biosensor test system based on magnetic nanoparticles. It is designed to provide highly accurate measurements of the concentration of protein molecules (e.g. markers, which indicate the onset or development of a disease) in various samples, including opaque solutions or strongly colored liquids.
Slated for launch in 2018, NASA's Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) will carry a 3-D printed part made of polyetherketoneketone (PEKK), a material that has never been used in 3-D manufacturing, let alone flown in space.
A team of international researchers recently sequenced the genome of the common bed bug Cimex lectularius, illuminating the genetics that may be responsible for their increased resistance.
Alphabet now comes before Apple atop the list of the world's most valuable companies. Shares of Google's parent company are pulling ahead of Apple in early trading Tuesday.
In December 2012, North Korea unexpectedly launched a long-range rocket from its west coast. The North Korea regime claimed that the launch successfully placed the country’s first satellite into orbit.
‘I’ is for investment, Sesame Street revealed yesterday. The nonprofit behind the popular children’s TV show, Sesame Workshop, unveiled a new venture capital fund.
The Orion spacecraft pressure vessel, meant to carry humans to Mars, was ferried to Florida in the belly of a chrome-colored leviathan. Not one of the seas, but one of the skies.
These findings could improve predictions for which patients could be susceptible to different types of infections.
Buried beneath the perpetual ice of Antarctica are the remnants of a once lush and temperate environment. Millions of years ago, the continent’s life resembled that of fellow southern continents, such as Australia. And traversing about this now-barren frozen landscape were dinosaurs.
In 2014, Villanova Univ. researchers reported that datacenters were major source of energy waste. In fact, more than 2% of the U.S.’s total electricity usage can be attributed to datacenters. And almost half of that power was solely used for cooling the datacenters’ electronics.
There’s a slew of methods companies, research institutions, and governments are using to counter the proliferation of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).
When cold milk is poured into a hot cup of tea, a temperature equilibrium is reached very quickly. The milk droplets and the tea particles interact, and after a few moments they all have the same average energy.
The success story of information processing by way of moving electrons is slowly coming to an end. The trend towards more and more compact chips constitutes a major challenge for manufacturers, since the increasing miniaturization creates partly unsolvable physical problems.
Scientists from the University College London made a new discovery regarding the HIV virus.
The Heiltsuk First Nation people have used this material to treat a swath of maladies like ulcerative colitis, arthritis, and skin irritation.
