For the first time, scientists have measured sun’s real-time energy

Physicists on the Borexino neutrino experiment at Italian physics laboratory INFN in Gran Sasso announced in Nature that they have detected neutrinos produced deep inside the sun. Neutrinos, which constantly...

The World’s Largest Solar Plant

Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System is the world’s largest solar power plant.  300,000 computer-controlled mirrors, all at 7ft high and 10ft wide, are focused at the top of a...

The Moon Is Older Than We Thought

For decades, scientists have been of the belief that the Moon, Earth’s only natural satellite, was four and a half billion years old. According to this theory, the Moon...

Scientists Have Grown the World’s First Artificial Embryo

In a world-first experiment, scientists have managed to grow a functional, artificial embryo from scratch, using two types of stem cells to build life in a Petri dish. The stem...

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s — a key discovery about human memory

As Superman flies over the city, people on the ground famously suppose they see a bird, then a plane, and then finally realize it’s a superhero. But they haven’t...
