A year ago, researchers discovered that fat helps coral survive heat stress over the short term—and now it seems that fat helps coral survive over the long term, too.
You're not irrational, you're just quantum probabilistic: Researchers explain human decision-making with physics theory
The next time someone accuses you of making an irrational decision, just explain that you're obeying the laws of quantum physics.
What's on the surface of a black hole? Not 'firewall'—and nature of universe depends on it, physicist explains
Are black holes the ruthless killers we've made them out to be?

Research has suggested yellow perch grow more rapidly during the short winters resulting from climate change, but a new study shows warmer water temperatures can lead to the production of less hardy eggs and larvae that have ...
The analysis, published in the journal Scientific Reports, offers some of the clearest views ever obtained of rock moving up to 50 miles below the plateau, in the lowest layer of Earth's crust.
Researchers who have revealed a highly efficient way that bacteria use toxins to interrupt the immune response say that until now, the trickery of these toxins has been underappreciated in science.
