If the onslaught of iPhone 8 leaks we’ve seen in the past few days is any indication, it appears that our worst fears about the iPhone 8’s new form factor are completely unfounded. Specifically, leaked schematics and case moldings suggest that Apple will not place a Touch ID sensor on the back o...
President Trump has said he wants NASA to refocus its energies beyond our home planet. But even planetary scientists have expressed concerns about scaling back Mission to Planet Earth. Since the earliest days of space travel, NASA has looked in two directions: out to space and back toward Earth.To a...
NASA has discovered a planet the same size as Earth, and the same distance from its star as our planet is from the sun. Due to its small size, the host star does not produce enough heat to support life on the planet. This has prompted scientists to label the world – nominally called OGLE-2016-BLG-...
The International Space Station (ISS) is usually a pretty clean place. But where there are people, there are microorganisms. And when you're trapped in a giant hunk of metal some 400 kilometres (250 miles) above the surface of Earth, you really want to know what that furry white stuff is growin...
It was way back in 2010 that we last heard anything much from InVisage Technologies, when it talked about making a new type of camera sensor suitable for smartphones, capable of producing dramatically better HDR pictures and videos than traditional sensors. It calls the tech QuantumFi...
Gullies streak down the slopes of a frosty Red Planet crater in a gorgeous new photo by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). MRO captured the image using its High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) camera, which can spot features as small as a coffee table on the Martian s...
A newfound alien world is quite Earth-like in some ways, but you wouldn't want to live there. The exoplanet, known as OGLE-2016-BLG-1195Lb, is about as massive as Earth and orbits its star at about the same distance Earth circles the sun. But OGLE-2016-BLG-1195Lb's parent star is tiny and dim, ...
Unlike anywhere else in the solar system, Saturn's moon Titan is brighter during twilight than during daylight, a new study finds. Titan is bigger than the planet Mercury, making it the largest of the more than 60 known moons orbiting Saturn. Titan is also the only moon in the solar system...
Thousands of kilometres of the Arctic and Antarctic sea floors have been charted in an ambitious and highly detailed atlas of the polar seabed. Several strange shapes gouged out of the sea floor reveal some of the more dramatic periods of the poles' past. It's often said that we know more about the ...
NASA and the ESA are planning to launch a joint mission to Jupiter's moon Europa. This icy satellite hosts a subterranean ocean larger than those on Earth, and it could host extraterrestrial life. EXPLORING TOGETHER Recent discoveries in space have made the search for life beyond Earth easier and mo...
The lambs spent four weeks in the external wombs and seemed to develop normally Inside what look like oversized ziplock bags strewn with tubes of blood and fluid, eight fetal lambs continued to develop — much like they would have inside their mothers. Over four weeks, their lungs and brains grew, ...
A huge cold region of the universe spanning billions of light years is not a blank patch mostly empty of galaxies, astrophysicists have discovered. The Cold Spot is an area where cosmic microwave background radiation – leftover radiation from the Big Bang – is weak. This makes it significantly c...

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ were finally released this past Friday, and it seems like the phones are already well on their way to becoming a smash hit. The South Korean electronics giant announced Monday morning that combined Galaxy S8 and S8+ pre-orders out-sold Samsung’s previ...
10,000 years from now (assuming humans haven’t been wiped out by a plague, space rock, or our own destructive tendencies), it’ll probably be fairly easy for the average person to research what life was like in 2017. For us here today, finding out what life was like in 11,000BC is much ...

Russian billionaire Yuri Milner has teamed up with British astrophysicist Stephen Hawking in a bid to discover and contact extraterrestrial life. Existence of aliens has always been argued among the astronomers for centuries, but no one can defy the substantial evidence of alien activities across th...
Washington Scientists have developed the first global Internet Atlas — including a detailed map of the internet's physical structure in India — an advance that could help guard the infrastucture from terrorism or extreme weather events. Despite the internet-dependent nature of our world, a thoro...
The wax worm, a caterpillar typically used for fishing bait and known for damaging beehives by eating their wax comb, has now been observed munching on a different material: plastic bags. Scientist Federica Bertocchini of the Institute of Biomedicine and Biotechnology of Cantabria in Spain first not...
We live in the era of technology and fast access to the internet. As a result, it has become easier to connect with friends and family, to work, and study. While some people may say the internet has a negative effect on someone’s education, that’s not quite correct. Nowadays, you have the opport...
Kitty Hawk is the “flying car” company that’s financially backed by Google founder Larry Page, and today it has published the first video of its prototype aircraft. The company describes the Kitty Hawk Flyer as an “all-electric aircraft” that is designed to operate over water and doesn’t...
From Country Living UK A photo can be even more impressive when taken from the right angle. And a perfect example of this is a new NASA image of Earth taken from 870 million miles away and pictured between the rings of Saturn....
NASA has finally revealed details about its plan to send astronauts to Mars. The plan calls for building an outpost to orbit the moon and test Mars hardware. A crew of four may have to spend up to three years inside of a Mars spaceship — yet never land on the planet. It remains to be seen if NASA'...
Jim Yong Kim said rising broadband access had created a world where "keeping up with the Jones's" meant those in the developing world were comparing their lives with those in advanced economies. echnology and the internet could fuel a fresh migration surge from developing countries as robots and aut...
If you live in fear of an asteroid strike, here's some detail to help flesh out your nightmares. A killer space rock is most likely to get you via violent winds that fling you against something hard or powerful shock waves that rupture your internal organs, according to a new study. "This ...
