Analysis of data from the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, a massive detector deployed in deep ice at the U.S. Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station in Antarctica, provided insight into one of the most enduring mysteries in physics, the production of cosmic rays.
By using swarms of untethered grippers, each as small as a speck of dust, Johns Hopkins engineers say they have devised a new way to perform biopsies that could provide a more effective way to access narrow conduits in the body.
A research team at the University of Southern California has developed a way to encrypt a crucial portion of the photo to keep it secure, while leaving enough unencrypted that it can still be utilized by cloud filesharing services.
Scientists at Northwestern University have identified conditions and properties that power companies can consider using to keep power generators in a desired synchronized state and help make a self-healing power grid a reality.
Using underwater video cameras to record fish feeding on South Pacific coral reefs, Georgia Tech scientists found that fish can be picky eaters--a trait that could spell trouble for endangered reef systems.
Scientists from NCAR, UCSD, Scripps and Florida State concluded that the heat generated by everyday activities in metropolitan areas alters the character of the jet stream and other major atmospheric systems.
Researchers at North Carolina State University have devised a technique to embed needle-like carbon nanofibers in an elastic membrane, creating a flexible "bed of nails" on the nanoscale that opens the door to development of new drug-delivery systems.
Scientists from Michigan State University and the Chinese Academy of Sciences forecast how a changing climate may affect the most common species of bamboo that carpets the forest floors of prime panda habitat in northwestern China.
Decades of extreme weather crippled, and ultimately decimated, first the political culture and later the human population of the ancient Maya, according to a study by an interdisciplinary team of researchers from UC Davis, Penn State and Switzerland.
Researchers at the Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati have discovered why plants and animals had a hard time recovering from the largest mass extinction in Earth's history 250 million years ago.
An insect's internal chemicals can be converted to electricity, potentially providing power for sensors, recording devices or to control the bug, a group of researchers at Case Western Reserve University report.
Research from Cornell University indicates that getting rid of insects could trigger some unwelcome ecological consequences, such as the rapid loss of desired traits in plants, including their good taste and high yields.
Johns Hopkins researchers have created a synthetic protein that, when activated by ultraviolet light, can guide doctors to places within the body where cancer, arthritis and other serious medical disorders can be detected.
A Florida Institute of Technology biologist has new research that finds predatory crabs poised to return to warming Antarctic waters and disrupt the primeval marine communities that have lived there for millions of years.
