Physicists used optical tweezers to capture their gas clouds.
The study shows that the drug profoundly lowers the usual brain’s usual barriers, bolstering evidence that it could be an effective tool for treating anxiety and depression.
Wally was blasted by an air horn and hosed down by lifeboat crews in Wales, and has now reappeared off the coast of Cornwall.
Astrophysicists are using the simulation to learn how stars form, how they arrange themselves into galaxies, and how the heavy elements that are vital to complex life are forged.
Scientists will continue to closely monitor the iceberg, which could pose a risk to penguin breeding grounds on nearby islands.
A giant carved into an English hill could be a pagan reaction to Christian domination, but scientists think it is more likely the giant received his most flattering modification in recent years.
The researchers found the result by studying a tiny, jiggling membrane. Their experiment could lay the groundwork for further tests of the laws of thermodynamics at the tiniest scales.
Male parasitic wasps emerge from their hosts a few hours earlier than females, making the ability to sniff females out all the more important.
The micron-sized drum apparatus used by the two teams has applications from probing for quantum gravity to building the first quantum computers.
A star that’s being “spaghettified” has been observed by astronomers. The star’s long strands can be seen wrapped around a black hole like yarn around a ball.
The injured baby whale slipped free from rescuers on Monday morning, and became stranded again after swimming upstream into shallower waters.
Researchers say the new network will be unhackable and able to coordinate systems to unprecedented levels. Many of the deeper implications, however, cannot be foreseen.
The increasing number of satellites and space debris orbiting Earth could prevent astronomers from making crucial discoveries.
The hybrids may have an advantage over polar bears because their jaws enable them to eat a more diverse range of foods.
Even today, the Gulf Coast still suffers from the effects of the oil spill. But a remarkable cleanup effort has helped the pelican return home.
The research isn't all for nutting; scientists say it will help a number of industries, from pharmaceuticals to mining.
The researchers say that brain plasticity like this may not just be a trick of the ants. Other animals could do it too, and we may only just be noticing.
Astrophysicists think a newly discovered region of the Milky Way could provide hints about the evolution of our galaxy and its potentially violent past.
Wally has been stirring up mischief by lounging on lifeboat slipways and capsizing passing dinghies, but conservation groups have warned tourists not to get too close.
