These storms produce very strong winds that cause the ocean to swell, generating powerful waves.
Thanks to two 14-year olds in the US, we will probably be able to eat ice creams from cones without a mess!
The coatings may not only lead to everyday self-healing clothes, but also help create garments that are tailored for protection against chemical and biological warfare agents and that can repair themselves.
A team of engineers has used light to print 3D structures that "remember" their original shapes even after being stretched, twisted and bent at extreme angles
Exposure to a chemical used in many consumer products, including water bottles, can induce behavioural changes in turtles, reprogramming male turtle brains to exhibit behaviour common in females.
The silvery skin of fish like herrings, sardines, mackerel and tuna act like mirrors, reflecting their watery surroundings to better blend in and the effect serves as a kind of underwater invisibility cloak that helps them hide even from animals with super sight, new research has found.
We probably do it every day but scientists have only now discovered a distinct new way in which we move our eyes.
'Clean Air India Movement (CLAIM)', said to be India's largest anti-pollution campaign, on Tuesday bagged the 'Energy and Environment Foundation Global Award 2016' for efforts to tackle the problem of air toxicity.
Scientists have developed a tiny bioinspired soft robot capable of mimicking caterpillar gaits in natural scale, that can climb slopes, squeeze through narrow slits and transport loads. The 15-millimetre long soft robot harvests energy from green light and is controlled by spatially modulated laser beam.
Chinese scientists have discovered a small molecule that can regenerate tissue, which in the future could potentially eliminate transplants of some organs.
Researchers have discovered the purpose of a large number of spherical stone artifacts found at a major archaeological site in South Africa.
In a study published on Thursday in the US journal Science, researchers from the Stanford University used machine learning -- the science of designing computer algorithms that learn from data -- to extract information about poverty from high-resolution satellite imagery, Xinhua news agency reported.
China on Thursday said the first batch of data from the world's only quantum satellite, which can provide "hack-proof" communications at speeds faster than light, has been received by it.
The Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, on Thursday presented the Nina Saxena Excellence in Technology award to ISRO scientist M. Jeen Britto.
Watched over by her human admirers, Ranthambore Tiger Reserve's pride, 19-year-old tigress Machli, the oldest big cat ever known to have walked the wilderness, died on Wednesday morning, officials said.
Scholars believe that intense solar storms caused major bursts of radiation to strike the Earth in 775 and 994AD, which resulted in distinct spikes in the concentration of radiocarbon in trees growing at that time.
The researchers showed that their transparent wood provides better thermal insulation and lets in nearly as much light as glass, while eliminating glare and providing uniform and consistent indoor lighting.
Amid the intense preparations for the launch of China's first quantum communication satellite, scientists hope it can help unravel one of the strangest phenomena in quantum physics -- quantum entanglement.
When you lie on the beach, your skin comes in contact with a minute fraction of radiation from outside our galaxy, say researchers.
Brain specialisations such as improved vision preceded the development of large brains in primates, our closest cousins, confirms a new study.
Two teenagers from India are among the 16 global finalists for the sixth annual "Google Science Fair 2016" and they will now compete for the $50,000 scholarship, as announced by the US tech giant Google on Friday.
Birds exposed to stress such as road noise, pesticides and light pollution were twice as likely to be bitten by mosquitoes that transmit the West Nile virus, finds a study.
Researchers at the University of Maryland's A. James Clark School of Engineering stumbled upon the blue flame by accident, while creating fire whirls in the lab.
Batteries take very long time to decompose and also leak toxic metals into the environment that can cause deadly diseases.
Metamaterials are materials engineered to produce properties that do not occur naturally and they are used to make artificial electromagnetic and vibration absorbers and high-performance sensors.
A new Guinness World Record for the most robots dancing simultaneously has been set in China where 1,007 robots shimmied in unison, nearly double the previous record.
Men are more likely to be bitten than women, and almost one third of incidents involve delivery workers and postal staff, the research by pet insurers Animal Friends in the UK found.
This robot can move forward and backward in a wave-like motion which enables it to swim, crawl and climb over obstacles.
A research team at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) has developed ultra-thin and transparent oxide thin-film transistors (TFT) that can be used to make high performance wearable and transparent displays.
A team of researchers has found a new method for making brighter and more efficient green light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which may pave the way for developing advanced solid-state lighting.
