That's some heavy stuff
Honoring science's funniest research
Welcome to the age of bioprinting, where the machines we've built are building bits and pieces of us.
How scientists create superheavy atoms.
The claim needs to be verified by chemical authorities, but the team says it's the strongest evidence yet for the highly unstable element.
PopSci discovers the elements, one by one
On its 150th anniversary, a chemist looks back at the various tables we almost ended up with.
Element naming has a surprisingly contentious history. Bitterly contentious. We spoke to Sigurd Hofmann, credited recently with the discovery of element 112, to see how he might change course
Researchers confirm the existence of this synthetic element in a new accelerator study. Will it be enough to give ununpentium official recognition and a new name?
According to the laws of physics, the world should not exist. To explain why we're here, scientists are recreating the universe's fiery beginnings by pitting matter against antimatter and watching them annihilate.
In a wide-ranging interview with PopularScience.com, Aldrin talks about a mission to Mars, 34 years of sobriety and the future of American leadership in space.
