For decades, scientists have relied on an established formula to measure the impact of greenhouse gas emissions on climate change.
Radiation-tolerant bacteria could be even more effective at clearing up nuclear waste through natural processes than previously thought.
NASA has approved $2.6 million to advance development of Southwest Research Institute's (SwRI) Chemistry, Organics, and Dating Experiment (CODEX) instrument. The device will allow unmanned rovers to analyze the decay of radioactive ...
University of Washington physicists are part of a team that made a step forward in their efforts to pin down the mass of a neutrino, an elusive subatomic particle that played a role in the formation of the universe.
A small drone bearing traces of radioactivity that was found on the roof of the Japanese prime minister's office may have been there for days, reports said Thursday.
MIT physicists have developed a new tabletop particle detector that is able to identify single electrons in a radioactive gas.
Federal officials say dozens of drums of radioactive waste at one of the nation's premier weapons laboratories are stable after some showed signs of chemical reactions over the past year.
A Mercury-like body smashed into a young Earth and gave our planet's core the radioactive elements necessary to generate a magnetic field, two Oxford geochemists say.
Scientists at the University of Sheffield calculate that all of the UK's high level nuclear waste from spent fuel reprocessing could be disposed of in just six boreholes 5km deep, fitting within a site no larger than a football ...
Several members of Congress are heading to the mothballed site of a proposed radioactive waste dump in the Nevada desert amid new talk about a decades-old problem—where to dispose of spent nuclear fuel stored at commercial ...
