Yeast and worms can survive hypothermia if they are first subjected to extreme oxygen deprivation, a new study finds. The results could explain a long-held mystery as to how humans can be brought back to life after "freezing to death," the scienti
A bacteria that lives in hot springs in Japan may help solve one of the mysteries of the early evolution of complex organisms, according to a study publishing next week in PLoS Biology. It may also be the key to 21st century biofuel production.
Surprisingly, the principles that brought to such a radical performance improvement are very simple, and consist of covering standard heat conducting materials — such as copper and aluminum — with a thin strate of zinc oxide. The coating develops a m
using a technique called "one-bit time reversal," allowed the team to achieve 46 dB of amplification. Because decibels are represented on a logarithmic scale, that corresponds to amplification of the original signal by a factor of more than 10,000.
A little less than double the experimental current (amperage) with a sufficiently strong magnetic field will achieve breakeven. If Lawrenceville Plasma Physics (LPP) achieves full success, then a Focus Fusion reactor would produce electricity v
"The bottom line is we have this new technology which is extremely effective,” said Goyal. “This study involved patients with large strokes associated with much higher levels of disability and death and we have the potential to be able to give them
Dr. Morrison provided compelling evidence in the 1960s that heart and blood vessel disease could be reversed and prevented with natural molecules, particularly chondroitin sulfate. This was over 20 years prior to the advent of the first cholesterol-r
What you are about to read, is what the scientists in the United States are not allowed to tell you in great fear of the Obama administration.
It conjures up a rather frightening vision of a future where intelligent robots work in packs without the need for human intervention. But scientists are developing robots which can 'dock' with each other and fly together in a swarm.
"There's no authentic data to prove her age but judging from her statements and the age of her adopted daughter, who's now 108 years old, it's difficult to doubt it," statistics bureau official Jhonny Sardjono said Monday.
But man-made systems that exist today are very inefficient and often require additional use of sacrificial chemical agents. In this context, it is important to establish new mechanisms by which water splitting can take place. Now, a unique approac
y, have discovered the strategic extraction of hydrogen atoms from a two-dimensional sheet of graphane naturally opens up spaces of pure graphene that look - and act - like quantum dots.
the primary launch services provider to the US Government, announced the first successful demonstration of XCOR's long life, high performance piston pump technology with liquid hydrogen.
Those crazy lab rats at MIT are attempting to radically diminish the cost of producing sophisticated nanotech cathodes and anodes by enlisting viruses to do the hard work for them.
Birds stayed at each site from one to 12 days, with the average being about four days. There was no difference in how long the thrushes stayed across the seven sites.
Energy giant BP told Canadian regulators that relief wells are an "after-the-fact tactic" in controlling oil well blowouts in March, less than a month before the catastrophic spill in the Gulf of Mexico — which the company hopes to stop by drilling
The explanation in the patent of how an EESU could benefit the grid is pretty straight forward, so this is really no surprise. But it’s nice to see the company beginning to accumulate a sizable stockpile of patents to protect its IP. Despite the sile
A tubby dinosaur sporting horns each the length of a baseball bat roamed what is now Mexico some 72 million years ago. Remains of the plant-eating dinosaur, now called Coahuilaceratops magnacuerna, were unearthed from the Cerro del Pueblo Formatio
Spurred by health care trends and technological advances, telemedicine is growing into a mainstream industry. A fifth of Americans live in places where primary care physicians are scarce, according to government statistics. That need is converging...
Part of the OSU research are studies under way with colleagues in England to examine ostriches, and make direct comparisons to the robot behavior. Animals, including ostriches, have a great ability to respond to unexpected disturbances while runnin
The new technique, dubbed “micromasonry”, employs a gel-like material that acts like concrete, binding the cell “bricks” together as it hardens. The tiny cell bricks hold potential for building artificial tis
We made a complex structure consisting of many cell types. This is a major advance in our quest to treat retinal disease. What’s so exciting with our discovery is that creating transplantable retinas from stem cells could help millions of people, and
“This is the first self-replicating species we’ve had on the planet whose parent is a computer,” Venter said in a press conference.
He argues that the time Americans once spent watching television has been redirected toward activities that are less about consuming and more about engaging—from Flickr and Facebook to powerful forms of online political action.
t never ceases to amaze me that every second of every day, more than 6,000 billion neutrinos coming from nuclear reactions inside the sun whiz through my body, almost all of which will travel right through the earth without interruption. But I am eve
When it finally comes to this (maybe sometime in September?) we look forward to the disclaimer on the BP announcement: this has never been tried at a depth of 5,000 feet below sea level.
The team also analysed the efficiency with which the energy of incident radiation is converted by the device. They obtained quantum efficiencies as high as 25% for this energy conversion and the results suggest that even better performances can be ex
For the first time, scientists have successfully extracted DNA from fossilized eggshells. Since many of the eggshells belonged to extinct birds, it may now be possible to learn more about mysterious prehistoric species. Eggs retrieved from cold
While the first two colors have been relatively easy to manufacture, researchers have struggled to produce a green LED.
