Researchers discover new genetic disease that delays brain development in children

Scientists have discovered a new genetic disease, which causes some children's brains to develop abnormally, resulting in delayed intellectual development and often early onset cataracts. The majority of patients with the condition, which is so...

Technology Research Center: Water Suvival Equipment Tested By NASA At Texas A&M

In 2020, the world watched as SpaceX launched a two-man crew in a commercially built and operated spacecraft to the International Space Station. They then watched as they safely splashed down two months later....
Study: DNA tests show most 'wild dogs' in Australia are pure dingoes

Study: DNA tests show most ‘wild dogs’ in Australia are pure dingoes

Almost all wild canines in Australia are genetically more than half dingo, a new study led by UNSW Sydney shows - suggesting that lethal measures to control 'wild dog' populations are primarily targeting dingoes. The...
Researchers observe complex tunable magnetism in a topological material

Researchers observe complex tunable magnetism in a topological material

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory have observed novel helical magnetic ordering in the topological compound EuIn2As2 which supports exotic electrical conduction tunable by a magnetic field. The discovery has significant...

Scientists create map of undiscovered life

Less than a decade after unveiling the “Map of Life,” a global database that marks the distribution of known species across the planet, Yale researchers have launched an even more ambitious and perhaps important...
Research reveals plunge in lithium-ion battery costs

Research reveals plunge in lithium-ion battery costs

Analysis quantifies a dramatic price drop that parallels similar improvements in solar and wind energy, and shows further steep declines could be possible. The cost of the rechargeable lithium-ion batteries used for phones, laptops, and...
