Einstein is wrong? That's the potential outcome of a quantum mechanics study as scientists race to disprove his views on entanglement.
Researchers believe they've found the first rocky, Earth-like exoplanet to orbit a distant binary star system. That's good news for the search for habitable worlds, not to mention real-life analogs to the "Star Wars" universe.
For the first time, researchers create a new organism based on E. coli that passes along artificially engineered DNA.
Chinese researchers have done the seemingly impossible: observed and recorded an instance of ball lightning completely by accident. And it bodes well for a decade-old theory about the nature of the conundrum.
Martian dust can wreak havoc with sensitive equipment, so researchers have created a chamber that lets them simulate the Martian surface -- dust and all -- before that equipment heads to the Red Planet.
Instead of relying on drugs to kill tumors, Georgia Tech researchers engineer artificial pathways to lure malignant cells to their death, using a "Pied Piper" approach to treating cancer.
With an eye on the Lunar X Prize, a 100-member team of experts are trying to develop quick-response rover technology they hope will alter the way robots explore the moon and beyond.
Researchers at Columbia University say their chip lets them electrochemically image biofilms to "listen to the bacteria as they talk to each other."
Without any screening tests, pancreatic cancer is rarely diagnosed early, and has become the fourth-leading cause of cancer deaths in the US. Steve Jobs died of it at the age of 56 in 2011.
Australian scientists are fitting bees with tiny sensors so they can monitor and study the insects' drastically diminishing populations.
