The intensely white coloration of the shrimp is a remarkable feat of bioengineering.
500 sheep were slaughtered to produce the 2,060 pages of the "Codex Amiatinus," a Latin translation of the Bible.
So far, two papers have been retracted, and a third is under investigation. Accusations of plagiarism appear convincing.
3D-printing robots are being used to build a 100-home housing development in the US state of Texas.
Using shaped ultrasound, researchers can 3D print objects in one shot.
Was it the enormous magnitude of the quake, or is the problem with the buildings?
Some solar cells are so lightweight they can sit on a soap bubble.
Lithium-ion batteries pose challenges for our transition toward renewable energy. Sodium-sulfur batteries might be a solution.
Bend it. Stretch it. Use it to conduct electricity.
Vanadium dioxide is a strange material that "remembers" information and when it was stored. This is akin to biological memory.
The future of American jobs isn't only services and tech.
"Ghost gear" leads to hundreds of thousands of animal deaths.
The new material may make marine uranium extraction economically feasible.
Scientists turn to nature to improve a ubiquitous building material.
A two-dimensional material made entirely of carbon called graphene won the Nobel Prize in 2010. Graphyne might be even better.
In paint form, the world's "whitest white" reflects so much light that surfaces become cooler than the surrounding air.
Cement production currently accounts for 8% of global carbon emissions.
A team of scientists hopes deep-earth lithium could sustain America's vast demand for batteries. But extracting it won't be easy.
Fire-retardant gels and slimes combine the best attributes of water and foam.
One home was printed in 28 hours. Now, Alquist 3D is building 200 more.
It has no moving parts and could allow us to tap into renewable energy year round.
In a major advance, scientists have found a new and groundbreaking way to force electrons to flow only in one direction in a superconductor.
Nanofabricators could quickly synthesize whatever we need, molecule by molecule.
A lucky discovery involving lithium-sulfur batteries has a legitimate chance to revolutionize how we power our world.
Small spiders use their silk threads to passively fly, a process called ballooning. Learning how could help atmospheric scientists.
Using cellulose from trees and a synthetic polymer, MIT researchers have created a material that "is stronger and tougher than some types of bone, and harder than typical aluminum alloys."
