Cattle feeders in the U.S. are coping with reduced herds and high corn costs in part by increasing their use of growth-inducing drugs designed to bulk up animals.
When did the first stars and galaxies form in the universe? How brightly did they burn their nuclear fuel? Scientists will seek to gain answers to these questions with the launch of the Cosmic Infrared Background ExpeRIment (CIBER).
A nutritional supplement— produced from beef, oysters and soy— delays advancement of Parkinson's and Familial Dysautonomia.
Food industries are now turning meat leftovers into high-protein content ingredients for food supplements, or to be added to processed food, including ice cream.
A new study of proteins suggests that the number of unique pockets– sites where small molecule pharmaceutical compounds can bind to proteins– is surprisingly small, meaning drug side effects may be impossible to avoid.
Since there is increasing interest in harnessing the currents and tides for energy, scientists need to know as much about the environment as they can, but the noise of gravel on the seafloor is so loud it's getting in the way of studies.
A team that proposed a new, more-practical scheme for using quantum physics to secure data transmission has now demonstrated it experimentally.
Three New York Univ. researchers from China divulged results from a U.S.-funded study to Chinese competitors in exchange for tuition, rent and other expenses, federal prosecutors say.
Researchers have produced carbon fibers coated in carbon nanotubes without degrading the underlying fiber's strength.
A new study aims to understand why recycling rates are so low in Great Britain and France, despite people expressing strong beliefs towards environmental behaviors.
Compressed air energy storage plants could help save the Northwest's abundant wind power— which is often produced at night when winds are strong and energy demand is low— for later, when demand is high and power supplies are more strained.
This image shows the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, shining above Bear Lake, Alaska.
Physicists have found a way to make sophisticated 3D images without using conventional digital cameras. Their system uses simple, cheap detectors that have just a single pixel to sense light instead of the millions of pixels used in the imaging sensors of digital cameras.
Researchers have developed a graphene-based ink that is highly conductive and tolerant to bending, and they have used it to inkjet-print graphene patterns that could be used for extremely detailed, conductive electrodes.
A research team has recently presented a three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic simulation of the lunar wake to further our understanding of the Moon-solar wind interaction.
