Does the arrival of asylum seekers lead to a deterioration in the economic performance and public finances of the European countries that host them? The answer is no, according to economists from the CNRS, Clermont-Auvergne ...
The way dragonfly larvae control the water jets they use to move and breathe could have a range of engineering and medical applications, according to new research.
Scientists are using the latest in 4-D technology to predict the behaviour of lava flows and its implications for volcanic eruptions.
After eight years spent recovering lost moon data from the Apollo missions, scientists report in a new study they've solved a decades-old mystery of why the moon's subsurface warmed slightly during the 1970s.
Microbubbles delivered via gas embolotherapy could provide a vehicle for cutting off blood supply and delivering drugs
Embolization—the use of various techniques to cut off the blood vessels that feed tissue growth—has gained traction over the past few decades to treat cancerous tumors.
First came the fire, then the rain—and finally, the devastating mud.
New simulations of Earth's asthenosphere find that convective cycling and pressure-driven flow can sometimes cause the planet's most fluid layer of mantle to move even faster than the tectonic plates that ride atop it.
Quark-gluon plasma is formed as a result of high-energy collisions of heavy ions. After a collision, for a dozen or so yoctoseconds (10-24 seconds), this most perfect of all known fluids undergoes rapid hydrodynamic expansion ...
Fountains of lava, whiffs of toxic gases, acidic plumes of vaporized seawater and blankets of ash: those are just a few of the dangers that volcanoes have delivered in recent weeks, with Guatemala's Fuego Volcano and Hawaii's ...
Most of us have an understanding of what atmospheric turbulence is – nauseating plane movement is hard to forget.
