Perception, Status and Bottled Water

In a new study, University of Arkansas researchers argue that consumers buy bottled water because they perceive it to be purer, safer and healthier than municipal water. Further findings suggest that young and high-income ...

Climate key to species invasion by air

Far-flung regions with similar climates that are suddenly linked by a busy flight route are at an increased risk of an invasion of foreign species, according to scientists at Oxford University.

AIM to Clear Up Mystery of Elusive Clouds at Edge Of Space

NASA is preparing to launch the Aeronomy of Ice in the Mesosphere (AIM) spacecraft, the first mission dedicated to exploration of mysterious ice clouds that dot the edge of space in Earth's polar regions. These clouds have ...

Researchers create smallest organic light-emitters

To help light up the nanoworld, a Cornell interdisciplinary team of researchers has produced microscopic "nanolamps" -- light-emitting nanofibers about the size of a virus or the tiniest of bacteria.

'Nano-Manhattan' 3D solar cells boost efficiency (Update)

Unique three-dimensional solar cells that capture nearly all of the light that strikes them could boost the efficiency of photovoltaic (PV) systems while reducing their size, weight and mechanical complexity.

Earthshaking images

The powerful earthquake struck suddenly, shaking the seven-story building so hard it bent, cracked and swayed in response. But this was no ordinary earthquake.

Fermilab experiment resolves long-standing neutrino question

Scientists of the MiniBooNE experiment at the Department of Energy's Fermilab today announced their first findings. The MiniBooNE results resolve questions raised by observations of the LSND experiment in the 1990s that appeared ...
