Chinese scientists claim to have developed a ‘magical suit’ fitted with large-area textile sensors which can detect temperature, pH levels, pressure and other indicators that show the health status of a person.
Scientists have developed a new artificial intelligence system that can decode the human mind, and interpret what a person is seeing by analysing brain scans.
Scientists using NASA telescopes have spotted narrow dense rings of comets coming together to form massive planets on the outskirts of at least three distant solar systems.
Scientists have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system to successfully predict earthquakes, an advance that may help prepare for natural disasters and potentially save lives.
Recent studies show that new dreams driven by short-time achievements make us forget the real objective and purpose of long-term missions.
Two astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) have completed a spacewalk to install a new camera system on the orbiting laboratory’s robotic arm, replacing a blown fuse and installing a new high definition camera on the starboard truss of the station.
NASA has approved a second extension of the Dawn mission at Ceres, the largest object in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
It is S Chandrashekhar’s 107th birth anniversary, and Google is celebrating it with a cool Doodle.
Scientists have developed a flexible sensor “skin” that can be stretched over any part of a robot’s body or prosthetic and lets them successfully grasp and manipulate objects.
Water may have flowed on ancient Mars in peak summers, even though the red planet was generally frozen over, a study suggests.
For the first time, scientists have detected the gravitational waves – ripples in the fabric of space and time – produced by the collision of two ancient remnants of neutron stars 120 million light years away.
It was a faint signal, but it told of one of the most violent acts in the universe, and it would soon reveal secrets of the cosmos, including how gold was created.
The elusive ‘Planet Nine’ does exist, and may be 10 times the mass of the Earth and 20 times away from the Sun than Neptune, NASA scientists say.
MRI brain scans can help identify children at high risk of developing multiple sclerosis (MS) much before symptoms appear, which may lead to earlier diagnosis and treatment.
While it’s true that space radiation is one of the biggest challenges for a human journey to Mars, NASA said it is developing technologies and countermeasures to ensure a safe and successful journey to the red planet.
Scientists have found that small solar flare could help explain why the Sun’s atmosphere, the corona, is so much hotter than the surface.
Astronomers have discovered that a Sun-like star lurking around 350 light-years away consumed the rocky equivalent of 15 Earths.
A mysterious and massive hole, with an area of 80,000 square kilometres, has been spotted in the winter sea ice cover around Antarctica, scientists say.
Scientists have found that the impact of the 2015-16 El Nino-related heat and drought occurring in tropical regions of South America, Africa and Indonesia was responsible for the largest annual increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration seen in at least 2,000 years.
Energy-saving Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) could replace WiFi technology for transmitting digital data, without compromising the quality of light or environmental benefits, a study has shown.
The shortage of plutonium threatens NASA’s future mission to explore deep space, the US government has warned.
NASA’s Mars Reconnaisance Orbiter (MRO) has spotted one possible place where sand grains are being produced on Mars today.
A small asteroid is scheduled to safely pass by Earth tomorrow at a distance of about 42,000 kilometres, allowing trackers around the world to test their ability to operate as an international asteroid warning network.
While burning coal today causes Earth to overheat, about 300 million years ago, the formation of coal brought the planet close to global glaciation or a snowball like state, according to a study.
Japan on Tuesday successfully launched the fourth and final satellite that makes up its terrestrial positioning network system, which will improve the current GPS services and help create a better communications system during a disaster.
Astronomers have designed a low-cost technology that allows telescopes on Earth to observe planets beyond our solar system with greater precision.
