A group of independent biologists say they plan to copy a costly gene therapy. Are they medicine’s Robin Hood or a threat to safety?
Heisenberg's famous principle can't be violated, but it can be gamed. A new study shows a way to measure particles with far more precision than before.
They knew it had to exist, but they just couldn't find evidence of it. Now, after decades of searching, astrophysicists have found verification of the first molecule that formed after the Big Bang.
The United Nations estimates that more than 8 million tons of plastics flow into the oceans each year. A new chemical conversion process could transform the world’s polyolefin waste, a form of plastic, into useful products, such as clean fuels and other items.
In November, Chinese scientist He Jiankui announced that he had created the world's first gene-edited babies.
Just how small are nanomaterials? And what can we do with stuff that small? Today we'll discuss some special properties of nanomaterials, how some can change...
Nobel laureate Donna Strickland is now a full professor at the University of Waterloo. Strickland won the Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month.
A tiny accelerator could be useful in medicine as well as basic science. Instead of speeding up beams of electrons through giant tunnels, the aim here is to build accelerators on semiconductor chips.
Imagine a box you plug into the wall that cleans your toxic air and pays you cash. That's essentially what Vanderbilt University researchers produced after discovering the blueprint for turning carbon dioxide into the most valuable material ever sold – carbon nanotubes with small diameters.
Korean researchers have developed a device that can control the speed of light. The new device is expected to accelerate the development of next-generation optical communication equipment.
We may not live in an infinite 'multiverse' of parallel universes after all.
