Plans for thorium reactors have been around since the 1940s, but Chinese scientists believe they are finally close to creating a working prototype.
Chased from the Northumbrian throne in 806, King Eardwulf is believed to have hidden in this cave for the rest of his life.
The findings from the Curiosity rover could help the Perseverance rover decide which samples to collect for later analysis.
Methane tends to only be made by biological life, so scientists are wondering if the source is from alien microbes.
The mass death of animals such as mussels and clams will have a significant impact on coastal water quality, scientists say.
The researchers believe their new bendy ice strands could give us some important hints into how water ice behaves in its natural state.
Although the asteroid, Bennu, only has a 1-in-2700 chance of hitting Earth, scientists are taking the risk seriously.
The artist's remains are reportedly buried in France's Chateau d'Amboise. Now, scientists are one step closer to identifying them.
The thinner size allows electrons to move across the device much faster, which could lead to the development of much quicker computers.
This is the first time ever that an animal has been documented performing this bizarre trick. The researchers who discovered it think studying it could lead to advancements in robotics.
Astronomers think the undead husk could transform into a neutron star — a totally new way for it to evolve.
Scientists are concerned that increasing amounts of meltwater could be finding its way into the ocean.
The early plague strain didn’t have the ability to transmit itself through fleas, making it less deadly than later versions .
The researchers hope to use their apparatus to probe why large objects do not exhibit quantum effects.
The worker bees' ability to clone themselves can be as destabilizing to the hives of other species as it is to their own.
Physicists analyzed data from the first ever gravitational waves detected to prove Hawking's theory, and think that even more could be discovered from studying the ripples in space-time.
The researchers created a computer model to predict the ways the planets would scatter, finding that slight tweaks to starting positions lead to vastly different outcomes
The researchers say that they want to use the survey to better understand our own place in the universe.
Nearly one-third of the 3 million simulations run by scientists showed disastrous effects within 2 degrees of warming, and scientists say their estimates are conservative.
