The asteroid that killed the dinosaurs must have ejected billions of tons of life-bearing rock into space. Now physicists have calculated what must have happened to it.
What's to stop kids from pirating LEGO sets as readily as they pirate music?
Chinese physicists demonstrate a practical system for converting infrared images directly into visible ones.
The battle amongst theorists to predict the structure of a new form of carbon is hotting up
Last year, physicists discovered that red wine can turn certain materials into superconductors. Now they've found that Beaujolais works best and think they know why.
The recent death of Sherwood Rowland, whose work helped us avoid one of the world's great environmental disasters, should be a reminder that we can't afford to ignore the lessons of chemistry.
The Murphy bed gets a new twist.
A soap film can bend a jet of fluid, just like a lens. That opens up an entirely new way to control microjets, say physicists.
The new material matches the properties of a puzzling new form of carbon found in high pressure experiments
Metamaterials that absorb seismic waves rather than steer them, might be a better way to protect some buildings, say engineers
