A team of chemists from Indiana University has developed a new chemical principle which could help create specially engineered molecules that extract radioactive elements from nuclear waste. The method which could significantly reduce the volume of these radioactive materials will also be applicable to “molecules created to extract chemical pollutants from water and soil."
The hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth’s surface is 2370 degree Celsius (4298 degree Fahrenheit). When a space rock crashed into earth nearly 40 million years ago in what is now Canada, it created hellishly hot temperature in the collision zone for a brief period of time.
What would happen if you were to bring a tiny piece of the Sun to Earth? Short answer is you die. And long answer - it depends which piece of the Sun.
Large-scale genomic study covering 210,000 people from across the United States and Britain has shown that humans are still evolving.
Researchers have shown a way to engineer zika virus to attack and destroy brain cancer stem cells. Since the virus tends to affect stem cells in the fetus’ brain, researchers say it could be directed to infect glioblastoma cells.
Showering is one of the individual ways of maintaining personal hygiene. But have you ever wondered what would happen to your body if you stop showering?
REM sleep is the fifth stage of sleep and it’s when dreaming occurs. During this stage, your eyes will move rapidly and there’s surge in brain activity. But a new study has shown that as the amount of REM sleep declines, the risk of dementia increases.
Physicists theorize dark matter could actually be created in the most powerful particle collider in the world - the 27 kilometer-long Large Hadron Collider (LHC), in Geneva, Switzerland. So, how would they do it?
Mosquitoes could be genetically engineered so that they don't bite people. Now, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has granted $500,000 to researchers of University of Nevada to create mutant mosquitoes that have no sense of smell for human flesh.
