A team of scientists from the Faculty of Physics and Sternberg State Astronomical Institute, Lomonosov Moscow State University leading an international collaboration with members from Europe, Chile, United States, and Australia discovered a super massive black hole in the center of the Fornax galaxy.
NASA's Parker Solar Probe has been launched to travel closer to the Sun, deeper into the solar atmosphere, than any mission before it. Cutting-edge technology and engineering will help it beat the heat. The spacecraft will travel through material with temperatures greater than a million degrees Fahrenheit.
A blood-sucking mite is wreaking havoc on honey bees — but scientists have discovered a surprising new way to fight back. The use of compounds produced by a widely-distributed mushroom (Metarhizium anisopliae) is known to parasitize a number of different insects particularly toxic to varroa mites.
Everyone poops. But who wants to actually deal with it? Ecologist Sasha Kramer literally works with poop and thinks about it every day. She is helping to transform human waste into fertile organic compost for agricultural use in Haiti.
A North Carolina startup grows "biocement" bricks to circumvent the hefty load of fossil fuels needed for normal cement. Cement is the glue that holds together the stones, pebbles or whatever tough material goes into your concrete bricks and sidewalks. But its production creates more carbon emission.
Advances in of Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning are broadening the scope of what technology can do in people’s everyday lives. Number of people are developing a curiosity in the fields with educational content online, it has never been easier to go from curiosity to proficiency.
It is mathematically impossible to translate the surface of a sphere onto a plane without some form of distortion. To solve this problem, mathematicians and cartographers have developed a huge library of representations of the globe, each distorting a certain attribute and preserving others.
The internet is being torn apart by a new argument over whether a strange recording of a robot is actually saying "Yanny" or "Laurel". We show you why you can only hear one and how you can hear the other.
Whoever said that its not easy being green, must have known what their talking about. Science has made some progress over the last decade when it comes to clean energy, but how many of those developed clean energy models have actually been integrated within the architecture of our homes and offices.
