Ultra-bright galaxies in the early universe may be less common than scientists initially thought, according to new research. Researchers used the Hubble Space Telescope to observe two galaxies thought to be so distant that we see them more than 13...
Researchers have created a new method to more efficiently convert potato waste into ethanol. The findings may lead to reduced production costs for biofuel in the future and add extra value for chip makers. More efficient bioethanol production is needed...
Are you more stressed than usual? If you find yourself at the end of your rope then maybe it is time to play a little bit of video games. Research has discovered that playing video games may actually help...
  Apps for kids that encourage interactions between parents and their children can offer the same benefits to developing minds as analog toys do, according to a new study. The average preschooler watches more than three hours of TV, film, and...
Lithium batteries made with asphalt could charge 10 to 20 times faster than the commercial lithium-ion batteries currently available. The researchers developed anodes comprising porous carbon made from asphalt that show exceptional stability after more than 500 charge-discharge cycles. A high-current...
New Rochelle, NY, September 1, 2015--Few comprehensive, definitive histories of biological warfare have been written, many events reported in the literature never happened, and few details are available about some uses of biological weapons that most certainly did occur....
It's a well worn media trope. 21st century millennials are leading the way to a green transportation future, moving to cities, riding public transit, biking and walking - and often delaying car purchases indefinitely, to Detroit's growing dismay. The reality...
You don't need to have a smartphone. You just need to move yourself into an area with a wi-fi network and your body impedance to the signal will increase the count of bodies in that area. Sounds interesting for...
Women lag behind men in the lucrative computer science and technology industries, and one of the possible contributors to this disparity is that they're less likely to enroll in introductory computer science courses. A new study of 270 high school...
A team of scientists has duplicated the chemical reaction that creates trihydrogen, or H3+, which some call the molecule that made the universe. While H3+ is astronomically abundant, no scientist understood the mechanisms that form it from organic molecules. Until...
