Cornered by a dangerous predator, a gecko can self-amputate its still twitching tail, creating a fleeting moment of distraction - a chance for the lizard to flee with its life.
Scientists have figured out a way to create and cancel magnetic fields from afar.
A team of UK scientists and engineers has demonstrated a novel technology for imaging the brains of infants and babies. The breakthrough is hoped to allow researchers new ways to investigate baby brain activity in natural environments without the nee
Professor Jim Al-Khalili traces the story of arguably the most important, accurate and yet perplexing scientific theory ever - quantum physics.
Brian Greene moderates this fascinating program exploring the fundamental principles of Quantum Physics. Anyone with an interest in science will enjoy this thought-provoking and highly entertaining show.
Greene leads you through all the startling conclusions of special relativity, from time travel to space warps to E = mc2. In the span of 2+ hours, this short master class will change your conception of reality.
Join leading thinkers in the emerging field of quantum biology as they explore the hidden hand of quantum physics in everyday life and discuss how these insights may one day revolutionize thinking on everything from the energy crisis to quantum compu
How real are you? What if everything you are, everything you know, all the people in your life as well as all the events were not physically there but just a very elaborate simulation? Philosopher Nick Bostrom famously considered this in his seminal
Theoretical physicist Sean Carroll, PhD, is challenged to explain the concept of dimensions to 5 different people; a child, a teen, a college student, a grad student, and an expert.
"There is a reason so many of the lakes in the Rocky Mountains have a beautiful, turquoise-colored appearance," said North, an assistant professor of water quality in the College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources. "They are full of gla
Women were bearing infants with organs spilling out of their abdomens or with their legs fused together like mermaids' tails. Some looked as if they were covered in snakeskin. Others emerged gasping, unsuccessfully, for air. No one knew what was wr
To examine the relationship between tree diameter and aboveground carbon storage in forests east of the Cascades Crest, the researchers used species-specific equations to relate tree diameter and height to the aboveground biomass in the stem and bran
The thrust created by the Stainless Steel Prototype was massive. Starship SN8 a first kind of that prototype successfully completed and survived the first static fire test without any fail.
The largest cross-country 18-wheel trucks will need five to 10 times more electricity than an electric car to recharge its battery. And these trucks often need to recharge far from high-power transmission lines.
Commonwealth Fusion Systems new high-temperature superconductor (HTS) cable can be engineered into magnets directly applicable to the high magnetic field approach to fusion. The new HTS cable, called VIPER, can carry over fifty thousand amps of curre
University of Rochester researchers squeezed carbonaceous sulfur hydride in a diamond anvil and it superconducted at 15 degrees Celsius under 270 gigapascals of pressure. This is about 2.5 million times regular atmospheric pressure.
A team of physicists from the University of Arkansas (U of A) has successfully developed graphene-based circuits capable of providing nearly limitless power for small devices.
The Firenze Lanciare is 1000 horsepower supercar on the ground and will have jet engines to become a 500 mph flying car.
The decades-old dream of many scientists and science fiction writers may come true at some point over the next decade...

Baniel, a former actor now in his mid-seventies, has expressive eyebrows and a theatrical baritone. In 2014, he became the founding C.E.O. of DouxMatok, an Israeli startup that is now releasing its first product: sugar crystals that have been redesig
Elon Musk discusses his new project digging tunnels under LA, the latest from Tesla and SpaceX and his motivation for building a future on Mars in conversation with TED's Head Curator, Chris Anderson.

This mini documentary takes a look at how Elon Musk sees the world through a scientific and engineering mind - and how this fuels the businesses he has started. We will also take a look at how he taught himself about different industries: from bankin
"When you look at different parts of the electromagnetic spectrum, that area of space is very different from the blackness we perceive with our eyes," says Michele Bannister, an astronomer at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zeal
When they work backwards, they travel through the fossil record, and through the branches of genetic relationships between species. They also look for geochemical signatures that mark life's presence in the distant past. Somewhere at the end of the
ULA has a website named "Rocketbuilder". You can build your own mission based on payload and destination.
"Just one extra atom in the antivitamin acts like a grain of sand in a complex gear system by blocking its finely tuned mechanics," says Kai Tittmann, an author of the study. Importantly, MTh doesn't seem to have the same effect on human prote
The disturbing contributing factors include all electrical and magnetic fields (EMF 1G to 5G), all acidic foods, all acidic fluids, all environmental toxins, including carbon monoxide, all insecticides, pesticides and herbicides found in non-organic
