Until 1985, gold was widely believed to be chemically inert. But once researchers discovered that nano-sized gold particles can act as remarkable and selective catalysts, a world of possibility opened up.
Astronomers have just made a new measurement of the Hubble Constant, the rate at which the universe is expanding, and it doesn't quite line up with a different estimate of the same number. That discrepancy could hint at "new ...
Wind offers an immense, never-ending source of energy that can be successfully harnessed to power all of the things that currently draw energy from nonrenewable resources. But wind frequency varies with weather patterns.
A University of Iowa physicist is at the forefront of the search for a missing particle that could prove whether the Higgs boson—believed to give mass to all matter—exists.
The recent rollout of Sweden's first wireless charging buses was accompanied by a tool for cities to determine the environmental and financial benefits of introducing their own electrified bus networks.
A research team led by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is performing simulations at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF), a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science User Facility, ...
Tesla Motors announced Wednesday that it has begun mass production of energy-saving batteries that it vows will take electric cars mainstream.
Statistical analysis of mini-spiral galaxies shows an unexpected interaction between dark matter and ordinary matter. According to the SISSA study recently published in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, where ...
Advanced numerical models are helping researchers identify potential sites to exploit offshore wind and wave energy in the Red Sea region.
Researchers at UPM make available for the general public programmes to simulate the functioning and predict the energy production of photovoltaic systems.
