NASA selected a data visualization and simulation software package used by Mars rovers and landers, and a software package that can be used in aerospace and industrial flow fluid applications, as the "best of the best" software developed by the agency this year.
A team of scientists and engineers in the Intelligent Autonomous Systems (IAS) lab at the University of the West of England have built a robot, which is able to power itself on a diet of dead flies or apples.
Gravity Probe B (GP-B), a NASA spacecraft to test two predictions of Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, achieved a major milestone
While parents and youngsters are busy carving jack-o-lanterns in preparation for Halloween, Canadian scientists are hard at work on

The University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine has been awarded a major grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to bring together researchers from different disciplines to study gene-drug interactions.
Thermo Electron Corporation has completed the acquisition of InnaPhase Corporation, a premier supplier of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology markets, for approximately $65 million in cash, subject to a post-closing adjustment. Headquartered in
White blood cells are principal players in immune system function. Yet efforts to influence their role in illness have been hampered by a lack of understanding of the surface structure of these mediator cells until now
Harmful contaminants often taint drinking water drawn directly from a river, but a low-cost natural filter may lie just beyond the banks. Johns Hopkins researchers have found that the soil alongside a river can remove dangerous microbes and organic material as water flows through it
A new mathematical approach for analyzing the complex, subtle patterns of natural mutation in DNA is likely to help biologists understand how mutation contributes to evolutionary change in mammals.The researchers, Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator Philip Green and his student Dick Hwang, published a report describing the first applications of
In an effort to put more science into the largely trial and error building of nanostructures, physicists at the Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated new methods for placing what are typically
The New Zealand Supercomputing Centre, launched this week, has already attracted interest from potential clients in New York, says Telecom hosting and storage manager Eric Pilon.
Dr. Fred Lawrence Whipple, the oldest living American astronomer and one of the last giants of 20th century astronomy, passed away at the age of 97 following a prolonged illness. He was Phillips Professor of Astronomy Emeritus at Harvard University and a Senior Physicist at SAO
A NASA-MIT Lincoln Laboratory team will forge the first laser communication link between Mars and Earth. This unique experiment, part of NASA's Vision for Space Exploration, will greatly benefit the transmission of data from robotic spacecraft
Vulnerabilities inadvertently built into the U.S. power grid, which is one of the most complex systems ever constructed, have been identified by a research team lead by Reka Albert, assistant professor of physics at Penn State.
