When determining the potential effects pesticides could pose to endangered or threatened species, the EPA, National Marine Fisheries Service and Fish and Wildlife Service should use a common scientific approach, says a new report.
Physicists have demonstrated that chaos can beat order- at least as far as light storage is concerned.
In 2015, NASA will, for the first time, fly a space mission utilizing a radically different propellant— one which has reduced toxicity and is environmentally benign.
Researchers recently created a stable version of a “trophy molecule” that has eluded scientists for decades. Now they have discovered that the bonding within this molecule is far different than expected.
A new material's artificial "atoms" are designed to work with a broad range of light frequencies. With adjustments, the researchers believe it could lead to perfect microscope lenses or invisibility cloaks.
Baxter International Inc. says that a blood product it was testing failed to slow mental decline or to preserve physical function in a major study of 390 patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease.
The old coastal road in a fishing village at the eastern edge of Grenada sits under a couple of feet of murky saltwater; for fishermen living along the shorelines of the southern Caribbean island, there's nothing theoretical about the threat of rising sea levels.
What unintended consequences could cleaner energy sources have on the changing climate?
A bat that uses blood flow to reshape its tongue while feeding could help inspire the development of shape-shifting medical instruments.
Research challenges the claim that humans were primarily responsible for the demise of the gigantic animals- called megafauna- and points the finger instead at climate change.
Indoor tanning beds would come with new warnings about the risk of cancer and be subject to more stringent federal oversight under a proposal.
Biomedical engineers have grown three-dimensional human heart muscle that acts just like natural tissue.
A study examines the relationship between families with exceptional longevity and cognitive impairment consistent with Alzheimer disease.
A roughly 3.5-mile high Martian mound that scientists suspect preserves evidence of a massive lake might actually have formed as a result of the Red Planet's famously dusty atmosphere.
Scientists developed a novel magnetic nanosystem that has allowed the first observation of spontaneous changes in the magnetization direction at room temperature in an artificial system.
