Evidence that a star has recently engulfed a companion star or a giant planet has been found using NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory. The likely existence of such a "cannibal" star provides new insight into how stars and the planets around them may interact as they age.
As NASA studies possibilities for the next launcher to the stars, a team of engineers from Kennedy Space Center and several other field centers are looking for a system ...
A new experiment proposed by physicists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) may allow researchers to test the effects of gravity with unprecedented precision at very short distances -- a scale at which exotic new details of gravity's behavior may be detectable.
Cognitive scientists from the University of Rochester have discovered that playing action video games trains people to ...
Engineers at the University of California, Berkeley, have developed a pressure-sensitive electronic material from semiconductor nanowires that could one day give new meaning to the term "thin-skinned."
Children's mental development could be recorded in much the same way we chart height and weight, say scientists.
They have devised a way of mapping development using an MRI machine and a mathematics programme.
The tool can be used to place children on a "maturation curve" just like we do ...
