If we could harness fusion to generate electricity, it would be one of the most efficient and least polluting sources of energy possible.
Armed with complex models and waves from nuclear tests, researchers are revealing the Pluto-size world beneath our feet
Glasses are much more mysterious than their crystalline counterparts, yet have a wealth of practical uses, says Jon Cartwright
Biochemist Dr. Brian Thomas joins us to discuss intact proteins, hemoglobin, and DNA discovered in fossils from all around the world, including in Dinosaurs. How could these sensitive organic materials have survived for tens or hundreds of millions years? And what are the worldview implications if they are only thousands of years old?
Experts at the University of Bristol have discovered that the scales on moth wings act as excellent sound absorbers even when placed on an artificial surface.

In photography, depth of field refers to how much of a three-dimensional space the camera can focus on at once. A shallow depth of field, for example, would keep the subject sharp but blur out much of the foreground and background. Now, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and…
The Moon may look like a big dry ball, but there’s more water up there than you might expect. In a new study, scientists have shown that at least some of it could have been showered onto the lunar surface from the Earth’s atmosphere.
A new study published in the journal Scientific Reports lends support to a body of research suggesting that reading on electronic devices reduces comprehension. The study found that reading on a smartphone promotes overactivity in the prefrontal cortex, less frequent sighing, and lower reading comprehension. ...
Cameras aboard NASA’s Parker Solar Probe managed to peer through Venus’ thick clouds to photograph the planet’s surface.
