When the first volume of “The Art of Computer Programming” came out in 1962, it was the first book to take a deep look into the math and science of…
Molecular machines, much smaller than single cells, may one day be able to deliver drugs to kill cancer cells or patrol your body for signs of disease. But many applications of these machines require large arrays of rock-hard moving parts, which would be difficult to build with typical biological structures.
Furrion is one step closer to creating its powered mech racing series.
Intel Announces ‘Loihi’ A Revolutionary Neuromorphic ‘Self-Learning’ Chip Which Can Simulate 130 Million Synapses
Intel recently held their CES Keynote and while most of the coverage was pretty much the usual symphony of marketing material and future projects, one particular segment is quite easily the most exciting part of the note: Neuromorphic & Quantum processing. It is no secret that we are nearing the edge of physics with our …
The indications are that at one time mars was both warmer and had an atmosphere thick enough for liquid water to exist. Was this the factor that actually destroyed the atmosphere turning it into the frigid barren waste that it is today. It is a possibility that is well worth considering. The process of…
An examination of 54 human brains suggests that adults don’t grow new neurons in the hippocampus, contrary to several widely accepted studies.
The genes of an Indiana Amish community may host a secret humans have pursued for much of living memory: the anti-aging key to longer and healthier lives.
With everyone from Elon Musk to MIT to the US Department of Defense researching brain implants, it seems only a matter of time before such devices are ready to help humans extend their natural capabilities.
A healthy heart beats about two billion times during a lifetime, thanks to the interplay of more than 10,000 proteins. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) and the German Heart Centre at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have now determined which and how many individual proteins are present in each type of cell in the heart. They have now compiled the first atlas of the healthy human heart, known as the cardiac proteome. The atlas will make it easier to identify differences between healthy and diseased hearts in future.
In just over a month of development, their algorithm outperformed expert radiologists at diagnosing pneumonia.
Scientists at the University of Sussex have disproved the existence of a specific type of axion – an important candidate ‘dark matter’ particle – across a wide range of its possible masses.
Brian Madeux’s life hasn’t been easy. So far, he’s had 26 operations to fix problems in everything from hernias to eyes. He has a rare disease called Hunter syndrome, which is caused by the lack of a gene that’s used to produce an enzyme that breaks down certain carbohydrates. As a result, the carbohydrates build up…
Neurotechnologies will offer brand new ways for humans to interface with computers. However, experts warn that we need to establish regulations.

This primer on hot towers shows how warm air gets lifted high above the ocean to power hurricanes and tropical storms.
Can a fluid analogue of a black hole point physicists toward the theory of quantum gravity, or is it a red herring?
Chinese scientists claim they have developed a working model of a microwave engine, which defies the laws of conventional physics, CCTV-2 reported. The TV channel provided no details of the EmDrive
Researchers at Caltech have developed a computer chip that can store quantum information in the form of light, at the nanoscale. The breakthrough is the latest step towards quantum computers and networks, which would allow information to be processed and transmitted faster and with smaller devices.
NIST scientists have achieved a world record in detecting the intensity of an ultra-faint source of light, equaling the capabilities of the deep-space instruments on the Hubble Space Telescope but operating 100 times faster and with equivalent accuracy.
Here’s why all hurricanes, like Irma and Harvey, spin counterclockwise.

bacteriobots hold a lot of promise in treating cancer says doctor, who hopes to use a new self-propelled, cancer-seeking bacteriobot.
Up until now, it’s only been possible to track where cells are in their life cycle once they’re dead. However, a new study outlines a method of analysing living cells by taking a close look at their nucleus.
The “hollow atoms”, which are being produced in the labs of TU Wien (Vienna) are quite exotic objects. Their electrons are in a state of extremely high energy (so called Rydberg states), but when they are shot through another material, they can get rid of this energy in a matter of femtoseconds (millionths of a billionth of a second).
