The relentless march of time can be a source of anxiety. Who hasn't sometimes wished for the ability to freeze themselves in a happy moment or even prevent a loved one from slipping away.

Every once in a while, a science-fiction book, movie or TV show will feature characters who can do what we all wish: Stop time.

The face of a woman who lived more than 13,000 years ago in what is now Thailand, and is a likely descendant of the first humans to populate Southeast Asia, is seeing the light of day.

A new study from the University of California, Davis, and the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai confirms that surgical masks effectively reduce outgoing airborne particles from talking or coughing, even after allowing for leakage around the edges of the mask. The results are published June 8 in Scientific Reports.

When we think of Antarctic exploration, the narrative is overwhelmingly white. The first confirmed sighting of mainland Antarctica was attributed to a Russian expedition in 1820, while the first landing on the mainland is attributed to an American

New Research Shows Māori Traveled to Antarctica at Least 1,000 Years Before Europeans

The tiny multicellular microbes sprang back to life and produced offspring after 24,000 years.

A remote-sensing technique that can detect real-time changes in subsurface environments has undergone successful testing in the desert just outside the KAUST campus in Thuwal, Saudi Arabia.

Acoustic waves give a bounce to real-time seismic imaging

Researchers at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University in Japan have recently been investigating situations in which two distinct Hamiltonians could be used to simulate the same physical phenomena. A Hamiltonian is a function or model used to describe a dynamic system, such as the motion of particles.

Finding the hypothetical particle axion could mean finding out for the first time what happened in the Universe a second after the Big Bang, suggests a new study published in Physical Review D on June 7.

Axions could be the fossil of the universe researchers have been waiting for

Reports of a decline in male fertility rely on flawed assumptions, a new study contends.

A troubled health system lets Americans with heart failure fall into financial ruin, according to a new analysis of health spending.

Like all metals, silver, copper, and gold are conductors. Electrons flow across them, carrying heat and electricity. While gold is a good conductor under any conditions, some materials have the property of behaving like metal conductors only if temperatures are high enough; at low temperatures, they act like insulators and do not do a good job of carrying electricity.

Magnetism drives metals to insulators in new experiment

Seems IMPOSSIBLE but it HAPPENED! *Amazing Cosmic Event*

German and Danish physicists used an electric field to control the single atomic bond between a specialized microscope and a one-atom-thick layer of graphene. The newly realized approach, accomplished by changing the voltage across the bond, allowed the researchers to pick up and drop the graphene with the microscope like a crane.

A group of researchers took a look at Earth's hot and cold spots using satellite data. They uncovered that Death Valley isn’t the hottest place on Earth after all.
