The humble house plant could soon start earning its keep by lighting up a room, if new research from MIT pans out. Engineers have hacked watercress plants to make them glow for a few hours at a time, and while it's currently only about as bright as those old stars you might have stuck to your ceiling as a kid, the long-term plan is to develop plants that you could read by to reduce the need f
Nvidia is a name long recognized by gamers, but its GPUs don't just help up the resolution and keep the frames ticking over on the latest AAA titles. With the new Titan V, the company is targeting scientists and researchers with what it boasts is the world's most powerful GPU ever created for PCs...Continue Reading Nvidia targets scientists with world's most powerful GPU for PCsCategory: Comp
Earlier this year, a team of geologists published a paper arguing that a new, mostly sunken landmass called Zealandia should be classified as our planet's eighth continent. Now a collective of scientists from 12 countries has returned from a two-month expedition exploring this subsea mystery. The result of extensive seafloor analysis is hoped to reveal new insights into the Earth's dynamic ge

A team of scientists from Johns Hopkins University have set a rather unique record – they've used a fixed-wing drone to fly medical samples farther than any drone has ever done before. The Latitude Engineering HQ-40 aircraft transported human blood samples across 161 miles (259 km) of Arizona desert...Continue Reading Scientists set record – for flying blood in a droneCategory: DronesTags:
One of the biggest biological mysteries is how life originally sparked out of non-living molecules. The answer likely lies in the primordial soup, a mineral-rich mixture that was lapping against the shorelines on early Earth, but there's still a big question mark hovering over just how these molecules managed to link up to form life-giving proteins. To find out, researchers at Georgia Tech ha
There is still so much to learn out about the TRAPPIST-1 system, the set of planets orbiting a (relatively) nearby ultracool dwarf star that so excited the exoplanet community earlier this year. One question on everybody's lips concerns the chances of liquid water, something scientists are now able to shed more light on thanks to fresh observations from the Hubble Space Telescope...Continue R
Researchers at MIT have uncovered a new potential treatment for reversing memory loss of Alzheimer's sufferers. The technique targets an enzyme known as HDAC2, which blocks genes vital to memory formation in Alzheimer's patients, and so far it has shown promise in tests in mice...Continue Reading Scientists unclog genetic brain blockade in mice with Alzheimer'sCategory: MedicalTags: A
Every fundamental particle in the universe has an antiparticle, which has the same mass but the opposite charge. If a particle should ever meet its antiparticle, the two would annihilate each other in a flash of energy. But it's long been theorized that there's an exception to the rule, with certain particles that are actually their own antiparticles. Now, scientists from Stanford and the Uni
A group of scientists from California have developed a series of organic electronic components that will harmlessly dissolve into their environment after use. Read more
