A new species of sixgill shark has been identified by a team of scientists based at the Florida Institute of Technology. Scientists have managed to decode 10,000 years’ worth of insect history from one five-meter-long core of sediment found at...
The degradation of the Amazon rainforest will reach a critical point if deforestation exceeds 20% of its initial area, says new research. A new study has attempted establishing a clear "tipping point" for the forest, identifying what could lead the...
Researchers in Spain have developed a new material, a so-called hyperbolic metasurface, that inverts light waves. Scientists from CIC nanoGUNE (San Sebastian, Spain) and collaborators have reported in Science the development of a so-called hyperbolic metasurface on which light propagates...
New spacesuit can measure people's stress levels and adjust their environment accordingly. Scientists from Florida Polytechnic University are working on a revolutionary technology, which, when embedded into next-gen spacesuits and clothing, could sense mental stress and take appropriate countermeasures in...
A new analysis of data from India's Chandrayaan-1 mission and Nasa's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter suggests that Moon's water may be widely distributed across the surface, not confined to a particular region or type of terrain. Scientists studying far-off exoplanets do...
Ultramassive black holes some 3.5 billion light-years away from Earth have been discovered with the help of NASA’s Chandra X-ray telescope. The so-called “ultramassive” voids are, according to the team’s calculations, growing faster than the stars in their respective galaxies. “A...
Scientists have used NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope to make the most precise measurements of the expansion rate of the universe since it was first calculated nearly a century ago. Intriguingly, the results are forcing astronomers to consider that they...
New Atheist author Steven Pinker claims in ‘Enlightenment Now’ that the world is becoming more wonderful because human nature is constantly improving. His book was reviewed in The Guardian, which referred to it as a manifesto for progressives. The review...
A NASA research based on an innovative technique for crunching torrents of satellite data provides the clearest picture yet of changes in Antarctic ice flow into the ocean. The findings confirm accelerating ice losses from the West Antarctic Ice...
Researchers have discovered the most distant supernova yet, at a distance of 10.5 billion light years from Earth. An international team of astronomers, including Professor Bob Nichol from the University of Portsmouth, has confirmed the discovery of the most distant...
