Research and development
Several different carbon-pricing approaches would help reduce emissions, and some would be fair as well, researchers report.
Researchers have uncovered exactly where a key protein forms before it triggers the flowering process in plants.
Researchers have found differences in the brains of athletes who participate in contact sports compared to those who participate in noncontact sports.
Technology could help prevent life-threatening infections in patients receiving chemotherapy.
A new study shows evidence that pineal and parapineal eyes were present simultaneously in an extinct lizard that lived nearly 50 million years ago.
A new study suggests there isn't a straightforward link between different bumps, spins, and blows to the head and the likelihood of concussion. It's more complicated than that.
The ultra-slow waves that pass through our brains are directly linked to consciousness and play a central role in how the complex brain coordinates itself, new research suggests.
"The deep mantle is a weird place with mysterious features..."
"We want to characterize stars that are similar to our own solar system, because that's our best guess as to what other planetary systems might have life."
More accurate predictions about the methane cows produce could help in the fight against climate change.
Researchers have developed a straightforward way to make a type of conducting polymers with high surface area—called “nanoflowers”—potentially useful for energy transfer and storage.
New discovery suggests that all life may share a common design principle.
As part of an effort to identify distant planets hospitable to life, NASA has established a crowdsourcing project in which volunteers search telescopic images for evidence of debris disks around stars, which are good indicators of exoplanets.
Taking antibiotic drugs may make us more susceptible to other infections down the road, a new study with mice suggests.
Scientists knew some trees clean up pollution from soil, but new research shows that the process isn't a one life-form job after all.
