Our back-to-school guide will show you something worth your time and money.
To win the Google Lunar XPrize, you not only need to land a rover on the moon by the end of 2015, you'll also need to send high-definition footage back to Earth to document the journey. We join Team Part-Time Scientists in Germany for an early systems test.
Eighteen teams are in a race to get to the moon, with a $30 million payoff. Team Part-Time Scientists recently explored a simulated lunar surface in Bremen, Germany.
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.
Flexible plastic bricks smoosh together like Lego, but could actually become building components for soft robots.
In another breakthrough in the weird, wonky world of quantum physics, researchers teleport data an unprecedented distance with a novel technique -- inching us closer to the rise of a 'quantum Internet.'
By electrically stimulating the severed part of the spinal cord, scientists are able to precisely control in real-time the limbs of a paralysed rat -- and human trials are on the way.
A new catalogue of the visible Milky Way is the most detailed yet, charting 219 million distinct stars in the region we can see from Earth.
