You don’t even need grade school science to know that water flows wherever gravity pulls it. But somehow when poured onto Arthur Carabott’s intriguing fountain, it instead sticks to impossibly perfect straight paths and corners on its way down.
Other than youth and recess and summer vacation and nap time and candy and junk food and energy and fast metabolism and hope and excitement and bubbles and being with your friends every single day and first memories and playgrounds and no worries and probably a million other things, one of the things that you miss about being a kid when you’re an adult is the lack of silly science experiments. Sometimes you just want to put some food coloring on a plate and make it blow away with some dish soap. You don’t what to know the science behind it, you just want to see a volcano explode.
One of the most exclusive clubs in Great Britain is not full of hereditary peers and socialites, but instead counts former pilots and servicemen as its chief members. It’s called the Guinea Pig Club and membership dues are steep.
Forgery is a science–and it’s getting better all the time, to the tune of trillions of dollars. Now, a group of researchers, lawyers, and insurers are banding together to beat it with a tool borrowed from science: synthetic encrypted DNA.
The victim was a seamstress, found dead in a bean patch, strangled by her own scarf. The suspect was a local creep who insisted he had nothing to do with the crime and was far away when it occurred. How did one detective prove what really happened?
From the skylight that beams sunlight into your room (regardless of the weather outside) to the interactive cloud lamp that brings a mini thunderstorm right into your house, check out these ten incredible climate simulations.
The paradox of Schroedinger’s Cat famously demonstrates that a quantum cat sealed in a box is both alive and dead at the same time until we look inside, at which point it becomes one or the other. Such is the weirdness of quantum mechanics.
Isaac Asimov and other classic sci-fi writers envisioned a future in which great vats of yeast or bacteria could feed humanity. We’re not there yet, but today’s startups are using yeast cultures to produce milk, egg whites, and even coffee.
You already know that water can have three states of matter: solid, liquid and gas. But scientists at the Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) have discovered that when it's put under extreme pressure in small spaces, the life-giving liquid can exhibit a strange fourth state known as tunneling.
It used to be the case that only skilled witches and wizards could make their origami fold itself. But now, clever Muggles have stumbled upon the non-magical secret behind autonomous paper—graphene. Read more...
We typically think of evolution as a progression from simplicity to complexity. But one organism seems to have thrown the rulebook out the window: a microbial animal that offers a striking example of evolution run “backwards.” Read more...
The Bologna Stone was discovered in 1603, at the base of a dead volcano near Bologna. When treated with heat, and exposed to sunlight, it would glow for hours—sometimes days. It took 400 years to figure out why.
