A new material structure developed at MIT generates steam by soaking up the sun.
A world without bees? Don't even consider it! Of course we would miss the products of the hive, such as honey, pollen and beeswax. But most of all, these super-pollinators are essential to agriculture. In terms of tonnage, ...
In some countries, a region that can lay claim to being the birthplace of a country's political leader is likely to get preferential treatment – bias that shines out when the intensity of night lights is compared with that ...
The Global Precipitation Measurement (GPM) Core Observatory flew over Hurricane Arthur five times between July 1 and July 5, 2014. Arthur is the first tropical cyclone of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season.
For Argonne physicist Clarence Chang, looking backward in time to the earliest ages of the universe is all in a day's work.
The point where the roiling ocean meets the fury of a hurricane's winds may hold the key to improving storm intensity forecasts—but it's nearly impossible for scientists to see.
Powerful, destructive tropical cyclones are now reaching their peak intensity farther from the equator and closer to the poles, according to a new study co-authored by an MIT scientist.
Terahertz radiation, part of the frequency spectrum of light between microwaves and infrared, can pass through many materials and is potentially useful for applications such as airport security scanning. Commercial use of ...
Changes in tree-ring density in the Arctic may be evidence of changes in light intensity during the trees' growth, according to a new study by San Francisco State University researcher Alexander Stine.
