(Phys.org)—Scattered around the Milky Way are stars that resemble our own sun—but a new study is finding that any planets orbiting those stars may very well be hotter and more dynamic than Earth.
A South American butterfly flapped its wings, and caused a flurry of nanotechnology research to happen in Ohio. Researchers here have taken a new look at butterfly wings and rice leaves, and learned things about their microscopic ...
Researchers who are studying a new magnetic effect that converts heat to electricity have discovered how to amplify it a thousand times over - a first step in making the technology more practical.
Using a new ultrafast camera, researchers have recorded the first real-time image of two atoms vibrating in a molecule.
(PhysOrg.com) -- An otherwise nondescript binary star system in the Whirlpool Galaxy has brought astronomers tantalizingly close to their goal of observing a star just before it goes supernova.
Scientists under the age of 40 used to make the majority of significant breakthroughs in chemistry, physics and medicine but that is no longer the case, new research suggests.
Genetic difference in staph offers clues as to why some patients get infections from cardiac implants
New research suggests that some patients develop a potentially deadly blood infection from their implanted cardiac devices because bacterial cells in their bodies have gene mutations that allow them to stick to the devices.
For the first time, researchers have found a way to inject a precise dose of a gene therapy agent directly into a single living cell without a needle.
(PhysOrg.com) -- The next generation of communications systems could be built with a sewing machine.
Researchers who have been working for nearly a decade to piece together the process by which an enzyme repairs sun-damaged DNA have finally witnessed the entire process in full detail in the laboratory.
