Space Technologies Improve Surgeries Back on Earth

Apr. 22, 2017 — A novel surgical robotic system has been developed that provides tactile feedback and is capable of single-incision and natural orifice (incision-free) robotic surgery. The system minimizes surgical ... read more

Apr. 20, 2017 — Breakthrough Listen -- the initiative to find signs of intelligent life in the universe -- has released its 11 events ranked highest for significance as well as summary data analysis results. It is ... read more

Will Earth-Like Planets Be Found to Have Earth-Like Oceans?

Apr. 20, 2017 — For a planetary surface to boast extensive areas of both land and water, a delicate balance must be struck between the volume of water it retains and the capacity of its oceanic basins. Each of these ... read more

Apr. 20, 2017 — Scientists have found new ways to detect a bare or naked singularity, the most extreme object in the universe. This finding has possible astrophysical ... read more

Apr. 20, 2017 — This stunning cosmic pairing of the two very different looking spiral galaxies NGC 4302 and NGC 4298 was imaged by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The image brilliantly captures their warm ... read more

Apr. 20, 2017 — Mineral deposits in a region on Mars called Northeast Syrtis Major suggest a plethora of once-habitable environments. By mapping those deposits in the region's larger geological context, the ... read more

Apr. 19, 2017 — An exoplanet orbiting a red dwarf star 40 light-years from Earth may be the new holder of the title 'best place to look for signs of life beyond the solar system.' Using ESO's HARPS ... read more

Hazardous Asteroid Effects Ranked from Least to Most Destructive

Apr. 19, 2017 — If an asteroid struck Earth, which of its effects -- scorching heat, flying debris, towering tsunamis -- would claim the most lives? A new study has the answer: violent winds and shock waves are the ... read more

New Method Can Model Chemistry in Extreme Magnetic Fields of White Dwarfs

Apr. 18, 2017 — Approximately 10-20 percent of white dwarfs exhibit strong magnetic fields, which can reach up to 100,000 tesla. However, on Earth, the strongest magnetic fields that can be generated using ... read more
