In space, loose clouds of gas generate spontaneous laser emissions all the time. Now, physicists are for the first time creating lasers from gas clouds here on Earth--lasers unlike any gas-based laser we've ever seen.
The Pentagon's mad scientists want to bring brain scans to the smartphone, swarming satellites to space, and self-healing software everywhere.
Absolute zero is theoretically the lowest possible temperature, but quantum researchers beg to differ.
Locata's technology goes where GPS can't, delivering a signal one million times stronger than those beamed from satellites.
Or, how to get high on electrodes.
Biochemist and experimental photographer Linden Gledhill coaxed some common food dyes into crystal and then turned them into art.
Rather than sending humans into deep space, why not bring the asteroids to us?
It was a huge year for 3-D printing technology, which touched everything from sports to chemistry to firearms.
While many call for tighter firearm restrictions in the wake of the Sandy Hook tragedy, the Wiki Weapon project believes technology is about to make such regulation irrelevant--and that that's a good thing.
Early exposure to glowing reviews about a product or service tend to stick in our minds and shape our opinions--even when later reviews are overwhelmingly negative.
Okay, your 3-D printed record might sound really bad, but it's still awesome!
For really big print jobs, you need a really big 3-D printer.
Though not yet confirmed, data suggests a rocky body is orbiting our stellar neighbor at just the right distance.
The computing giant's annual list of technology predictions for the next five years foresee computers that can taste, see, smell, hear, and touch.
More bad news for North Korea on the first anniversary of dearly departed leader Kim Jong-il’s death: the satellite it launched into orbit last week is not only tumbling out of control, but is also likely completely dead, astronomers say. “It’s tumbling and we haven’t picked up any transmissions,” Jonathan McDowell, a Harvard astronomer who tracks space activity, told the New York Times. “Those two things are most consistent with the satellite being entirely inactive at this point.”
