Besides superfluous features like touchscreens and internal cameras, basic refrigerator technology hasn't changed much in decades. They still chill your milk by way of chemical refrigerants and compressors, and are notorious drains on your electricity bill. Now researchers in Europe have shown promising early results with an experimental cooling system that uses magnetic fields and shape-s
Anaesthetic-turned-recreational drug ketamine has become the subject of intense research in recent years, as scientists hunt for new and improved treatments for depression. This line of investigation has produced many promising results, but a new study has highlighted some parallels between ketamine and opioids, raising red flags for scientists concerned about the potentially addictive qua
A small experimental CubeSat called the Arcsecond Space Telescope Enabling Research in Astrophysics (ASTERIA) has earned recognition for its ability to punch above its own weight. Awarded the Small Satellite Mission of the Year by the Small Satellite Technical Committee of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics' (AIAA), the bread loaf-sized spacecraft is designed to show th
Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often find it difficult to gauge other people's emotions based on their facial expressions – this can in turn lead to problems in communicating with those people. Scientists at Stanford University, however, are seeing new hope in an approach that utilizes Google Glass smart glasses... Continue Reading Experimental autism treatment reads emotions
DARPA's Phantom Express experimental spaceplane took a step closer to flight as Aerojet Rocketdyne announced that the AR-22 booster rocket engine successfully completed 10 test firings in 240 hours at NASA's Stennis Space Center. Based on the Space Shuttle main engine, the new variant is designed for rapid recycling as part of an effort to create an aircraft-like launch vehicle that can se
With the current opioid crisis in the US, finding new non-addictive painkillers and other relief methods is key. An experimental, non-opioid drug known as EMA401 is showing promise, and now researchers at Washington University in St Louis have found that it works by targeting a different part of the body, outside of the nervous system...

A fascinating study by a team of researchers from Weill Cornell Medicine, Columbia University Irving Medical Center and NewYork-Presbyterian has found that the ketogenic diet may improve the efficacy of a new class of cancer drug that has been inexplicably showing disappointing results in early human clinical trials... Continue Reading How the ketogenic diet could improve efficacy of a new
For people who cannot speak, nor move their arms, hands or even heads, computer-connected eye-tracking systems allow for communications via eye movements. Such systems have some drawbacks, however, which a new prototype headset is claimed to address...

If you've ever lived near an airport, or visited someone who does, you'll be familiar with the window-shaking rumble that can keep many a household up at night. NASA has taken it upon itself to address the problem, testing three new noise reduction technologies on a series of Acoustic Research Measurement (ARM) flights, and managing to cut airframe noise during landing by more than 70 perc
