(Phys.org) —Images taken by Rice University scientists show that some diamonds are not forever. The Rice researchers behind a new study that explains the creation of nanodiamonds in treated coal also show that some microscopic ...
More than 100 million years has been wiped off the age of the first stars but there is still the question of what happened in the first billion years of the universe.
Scientists have created microbe-sized beads that can utilize energy in the environment to self-propel upstream by purely physical means.
An Australian National University (ANU) team has successfully replicated one of the crucial steps in photosynthesis, opening the way for biological systems powered by sunlight which could manufacture hydrogen as a fuel.
Rotten eggs, horse pee, alcohol and bitter almonds: this is the bouquet of odours you would smell if a comet in deep space could be brought back to Earth, European scientists said on Thursday.
A cobalt-based thin film serves double duty as a new catalyst that produces both hydrogen and oxygen from water to feed fuel cells, according to scientists at Rice University.
For the first time, researchers have succeeded to detect a single hydrogen atom using magnetic resonance imaging, which signifies a huge increase in the technology's spatial resolution. In the future, single-atom MRI could ...
UNSW Australia scientists have developed a highly efficient oxygen-producing electrode for splitting water that has the potential to be scaled up for industrial production of the clean energy fuel, hydrogen. The new technology ...
A University of Delaware research team is considering the important question of what it will take to create an affordable emissions-free car.
Planets tend to cool as they get older, but Saturn is hotter than astrophysicists say it should be without some additional energy source.
