China has launched the world’s first quantum satellite, which promises to probe new aspects of mysterious quantum communications. But as the technology can potentially create a spy-proof communications network, the entire world is eagerly watching the results.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens captured the hearts of many; however, not all of its science-based action is plausible. Much of it would end in certain disaster, no matter what galaxy one calls home.
A new material developed by researchers at the University of Michigan repairs itself of bullet holes within seconds. This invention has substantial implications for the future of aerospace engineering and space travel.
A team of researchers across disciplines at Yale has invented a new semiconductor laser that will help improve biomedical imaging capabilities.
Time travel has sparked imaginations for decades — but is it really possible? Many physicists believe so. Here is how we could do it.
A team led by Yale postdoctoral student Dr. Won-Hee Ryu has engineered an ingenious catalytic membrane design that increases cyclability for lithium-air batteries.
Rocket recovery could confer tremendous benefits on the cost and feasibility of space travel. SpaceX, a company with a goal of making private space travel a possibility, has been experimenting with technology for reusable booster rockets.
The stones scattered throughout a dry, flat lakebed in Death Valley move parallel to each other by a force that has remained a mystery for decades. Researchers from the Scripps Institute of Oceanography have debunked previous theories by seeing first-hand that slow-flowing thin sheets of ice are responsible for the phenomenon.
In order to make water freeze faster, it should be heated first. Doesn’t make sense? The Mpemba effect, or the tendency of hot water to cool faster than cooler water, has baffled philosophers and scientists for millennia.
