NASA's X-43A research vehicle screamed into the record books again, demonstrating that an air-breathing engine can fly at nearly 10 times the speed of sound. Preliminary data from the scramjet-powered research vehicle show its revolutionary engine worked successfully at nearly Mach 9.
For the first time, MIT researchers have incorporated a plant's ability to convert sunlight to energy into a solid-state electronic "spinach sandwich" device that may one day power laptops and cell phones.
As a boy, Wei Gu taught himself to write computer software for the electronic games he liked to play.
Would Columbus have reached the New World if his ships could not carry enough water for their crews?
An international team of NASA and university researchers has dramatically improved the accuracy of the first direct evidence that the Earth drags space and time around itself as it rotates.

A place so barren that NASA uses it as a model for the Martian environment, Chile's Atacama Desert gets rain maybe once a decade. In 2003, scientists reported that the driest Atacama soils were sterile. Not so, reports a team of Arizona scientists. Bleak though it may be, microbial life lurks beneath the arid surface of the Atacama's absolute desert
Humans evolved from ape-like ancestors because they needed to run long distances, perhaps to hunt animals or scavenge carcasses on Africa’s vast savannah, and the ability to run shaped our anatomy, making us look like we do today
