People generate about 70 pounds of textile trash a year, which then sits in landfills for centuries. A new fiber would decompose much, much faster.
These are the three key things that any person should know about the nature of science.
The world's longest sea bridge has opened, connecting Hong Kong, Zhuhai, and Macau. It is 55 kilometres or 20 times longer than the Golden Gate Bridge
The MARS scanner, armed with particle-detecting tech used in CERN’s Large Hadron Collider, lets us see so much more beyond the bone.
From the energy-efficient way turkeys walk to the "invincibility" of a cockroach, critters serve as models for tech.
Building a computer out of the skeletons that hold our cells together could make them smaller and far more energy efficient
Taking a hot bath twice a week may help relieve mild depression. It may work by resetting circadian rhythms, which are often disrupted in people with depression
A new study suggests that microplastics routinely show up in our food—and our digestive tracts.
Algorithms design robot legs tailored to walk on specific surfaces. The results are at once logical, counterintuitive, and bizarre.
Mars gets its red colour from oxygen rusting its surface, and it may be hiding even more oxygen in underground brine, which could help microorganisms survive
