Neutron stars -- the compressed remains of massive stars gone supernova -- are the densest "normal" objects in the known universe. (Black holes are technically denser, but far from normal.) Just a single sugar-cube worth of neutron-star material...
Once dismissed as 'junk DNA' that served no purpose, a family of 'jumping genes' found in tomatoes has the potential to accelerate crop breeding for traits such as improved drought resistance. Researchers from the University of Cambridge's Sainsbury Laboratory...
Scientists say they have discovered new details about the day an asteroid hit Earth and killed off the dinosaurs. In a new study, an international team of researchers led by the University of Texas at Austin has found evidence of...

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have created a material that they claim is 10 times blacker than anything discovered before. A pair of academics at MIT in the US discovered this when they decided to grow tiny...
Stanford University scientists Wei Li and Shanhui Fan and a University of California Los Angeles materials scientist Aaswath Raman have created a device that produces a voltage by channelling daytime warmth into the cooling air. The approach could be adapted...
The centre of our galaxy has blown some bubbles. Astronomers using the MeerKAT telescope in South Africa have discovered a pair of enormous bubbles of high-energy particles looming hundreds of light years above and below the Milky Way’s central...
Two asteroids will fly past Earth Friday and Saturday including one that's almost the size of the world's tallest building, but astronomers say neither is a threat to hit the planet. The asteroids have been described by NASA as “relatively...
