We'd know a lot more about what's under the Earth's crust if Jules Verne's Icelandic volcano weren't but a figment of his imagination. Japan's Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology's (JAMSTEC) largest drilling ship called "Chikyu" is very real, though, and a group of internationa...

An opportunity Apple shouldn’t waste When it comes to TV streaming boxes, it’s safe to say the Apple TV isn’t exactly king of the hill. We’re currently in the product’s fourth generation, and Apple hasn’t delivered on the TV revolution it promised. In fact, it’s struggling to...
Jupiter is famous for its Great Red Spot, a storm twice the diameter of Earth that rages on the gas giant's surface. Now, researchers have found that it has a second great spot, almost as large — this one, a Great Cold Spot caused by the planet's vibrant auroras. Researchers first detected the eve...
You might have a 4K television or display, but what content is really worthy of that kind of resolution? Sports? Pfft. Netflix shows? Ha. But how about space? According to people who’ve been there (who are probably best positioned to know), there’s nothing quite like the view from outside the Ea...
Everyone wants faster software development, but how to get there? Here's how Soasta evangelists are selling the world on data science one customer at a time. In a rapidly changing world filled with too much information, Tom Lounibos, CEO of Soasta Inc., has a simple, down-to-earth, one-word solution...
Was former President Barack Obama's birth certificate faked so he could run for office? It depends on how you ask Google. The search engine giant last week expanded a test fact-checking program worldwide in a bid to help stop the spread of misinformation after it faced criticism for returning fake a...

Many other planets throughout the universe probably hosted intelligent life long before Earth did, a new study suggests. The probability of a civilization developing on a potentially habitable alien planet would have to be less than one in 10 billion trillion — or one part in 10 to the 2...

Defining semantics is a matter of semantics, not less so in the Big Data space. The Semantics conference is one of the biggest events for all things semantics. Key research and industry players gathered this week in Leipzig to showcase and discuss, and we were there to get that vibe. Enter...
With the press of a digital “panic” button, immigrants detained by ICE may soon be able to send customized, encrypted messages to friends and family from their mobile phones in a last-minute attempt to share final parting words or critical information. Notifica, which ha...
Throughout history, people have always worried about new technologies. The fear that the human brain cannot cope with the onslaught of information made possible by the latest development was first voiced in response to the printing press, back in the sixteenth century. Swap “printing press” fo...
It seemed as though there was a piece missing from the solar system when Pluto got declassified as a planet and reclassified as a dwarf planet instead. Since then, several other Pluto-like bodies have been discovered beyond the orbit of Neptune, but none that qualify as being a planet, unfortunately...
The fundamental distinction between technology and humans is empathy, but things are changing fast, says Ravleen Beeston. People are now literally voicing their concerns to technology – they are showing their emotion, expecting the technology to listen, watch and understand. People want technolog...
  WASHINGTON, APRIL 8:   A relatively large near-Earth asteroid will fly safely past our planet on April 19 at a distance of about 1.8 million kilometres — over four times the distance from Earth to the Moon, NASA said today. Although there is no possibility for the asteroid to coll...
We might have been wrong about how our bodies feel pain. Scientists have found evidence of a hidden network of 'mini brains' that could overhaul our understanding of how pain is transmitted throughout the body, and revolutionise the way we design pain medication. The current assumption is that pain ...

Vasalgel aims to make contraception for men as easy and effective as IUDs have for womenAn IUD is a remarkably elegant device. Though not risk-free, it’s relatively safe and easy to insert, and equally simple to remove. It’s no wonder that so many American women rely on it to avoid unw...
As some scientists search for habitable planets outside our solar system, other researchers are tackling a similar question for the moons of these planets. So-called exomoons have yet to be found outside our solar system, and a detection could be a decade away — or more. But scientists, writing in...

There have been moments that have changed the way we think, that have stunned humanity, that have changed the very civilization in history. Late twentieth century and the beginning of twenty first century have brought to life the realization of fantastic dreams of scientists, researchers a...
There’s been a lot of talk recently about getting humans to Mars, with SpaceX boss Elon Musk, for one, certain that the feat can be achieved in the not-at-all-distant future. When sending humans to the red planet does finally become a reality, it’s not hard to imagine that the first thing they...
