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.
A team of researchers has created living rose plants with electronic circuits threaded through their veins.
Multiple research teams claim to have conclusively demonstrated quantum entanglement, which had been disdainfully dubbed "spooky action at a distance" by Albert Einstein.
Some of the competitors have announced contracts to go to the moon, and there may be more to come. We check in with some of the leaders in Tokyo to find out who will get there first.
A story that went viral this week reports that astronomers finally found E.T., but those aren't the facts. CNET's Eric Mack talks with the astronomers involved about what is still a very interesting star.
Scientists determine the color of ancient bats based on the shape of the melanin preserved in their fossils. If these bats had their own coloring book, you'd only get to use one or two crayons.
A French team plans to wake up its second ancient virus in two years to study its genetic structure. Have these scientists never seen a zombie movie?
The technique, which was able to drop a liquid's temperature by 20 degrees Celsius, could eventually be used for everyday tasks like refrigerating water.
