So could the student. “They use it like this,” Keeler said, raising his hand to his mouth like he was about to cough. “Kids just sit in class, you don’t even know … they just […]

From the moon's far side, a radio receiver will listen for ancient clues to the universe's origin

From the moon's far side, a radio receiver will listen for ancient clues to the universe's origin

Neil Armstrong walked on the near side of our moon half a century ago. On Monday, China’s expected to embark on the first step of a mission to probe its far side, and even more ambitiously, search for glimpses of the universe’s origin. China could launch the relay communication satellite Queqiao, or “bridge of magpies,” […]

Here's How Health Officials Plan to Use the Ebola Vaccine in New African Outbreak

Here's How Health Officials Plan to Use the Ebola Vaccine in New African Outbreak

The Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is spreading, but this time around, there’s a vaccine. New cases of the notorious virus — which killed more than 11,000 people in the 2014 outbreak in West Africa — were first documented in early April in the DRC’s rural Equateur Province, according […]

Proton contains 10 times the pressure of a neutron star

Proton contains 10 times the pressure of a neutron star

Scientists have found that the pressure inside a proton is actually far greater than they ever imagined. An extraordinary new study has found that pressure within a proton is 10 times stronger than that of a super-dense neutron star. It is the first ever measurement of the mechanical property of protons, which are subatomic particles […]

'Tick Explosion' or Not… Lyme Disease Still a Concern This Summer

Getty Images April showers bring May flowers. They also bring along more than a few unwanted guests — namely ticks. But is the United States really on the verge of a “tick explosion”? The seriousness of this year’s tick season was highlighted in a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Vital Signs report earlier […]

'Death Star' lasers reveal the secret battle going on at the heart of the Ant Nebula

'Death Star' lasers reveal the secret battle going on at the heart of the Ant Nebula

IT’s an enormous explosion: two symmetrical, billowing bubbles of gas reaching out to form what we call the Ant Nebula. Now the pulse of lasers has been detected rippling through its shattered heart. The Ant Nebula is already odd. It’s shape is not a common one. Which is why the European Space Agency’s Herschel Space […]

More than 300,000 cases of gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis — the […]

Bulk carbon nanotubes created by using a surprising household solvent

Bulk carbon nanotubes created by using a surprising household solvent

Mass production of carbon nanotubes had proved to be really challenging for the scientists, who had been facing numerous difficulties in building them in a bulk. A single carbon nanotube tends to be near about ten thousand times thinner as compared to a human hair, which is why it takes scientists decades for producing them. […]
