We asked experts how to craft a more intentional, peace-filled ritual to support a better night’s sleep.
Want to take control inside your dreams? Turns out it’s a skill you can practice.
A new experiment pulled off the most precise measurement of an electron’s self-generated magnetic field—and the universe’s subatomic model is at stake.
Relativity Space’s attempt to reach orbit heralds the increasing use of 3D printing in the space sector.
It’s cellular immunity, not antibodies, that probably protects against the coronavirus’s worst effects—and scientists haven’t worked out how long it lasts.
Avian influenza has killed millions of birds. Shots to prevent it already exist. Why isn’t the entire poultry industry using them?
Scientists investigated a weird feature in Parker Solar Probe data—and may have discovered what drives the plasma that pervades the solar system.
New modeling estimates that food production could add a degree Celsius to global warming. But it also points to powerful ways to make diets more sustainable.
Faced with extreme drought, Kenya’s president approved a controversial new crop for farmers. Then the legal backlash began.
About a dozen such consumer tests are now on the market, but the science of reading DNA for insights about longevity is still young.
Startups rush to gain a foothold in a burgeoning industry as New York and California move to legalize human composting.
One million species are at risk of extinction, but a handful of charismatic creatures get all the hype. A new conservation strategy has a different focus.
New research shows that if done right, urban farms and gardens can support all kinds of species—for the good of people and the environment.
Atomic weapons are complex, sensitive, and often pretty old. With testing banned, countries have to rely on good simulations to trust their weapons work.
In a factory on the outskirts of Glasgow, aerospace manufacturer Skyrora is building rockets for a space-bound taxi service for satellites.
Electrical stimulation applied to the spinal cord temporarily restored arm and hand movement in two patients.
The student winners of a NASA competition designed a serpentine bot that could sidewind across lunar regolith or roll down hills.
Audacious plans to resurrect the long-extinct bird could be lucrative. But the moonshot raises thorny philosophical questions.
The European Space Agency is exploring a unique way to dramatically cut carbon emissions by tapping sunlight closer to the source.
Many are celebrating Australia’s decision to pave the way for these psychedelic therapies, but questions around accessibility remain.
Scientists have uncovered the Roman recipe for self-repairing cement—which could massively reduce the carbon footprint of the material today.
Biological amino acids could have celestial or terrestrial roots. An experiment simulated their formation in deep space—but the mystery isn’t solved yet.
A simultaneous solution to California’s extreme drought and flooding is to bank more water underground. Send in the choppers (and a few ATVs).
When a warm band of water develops in the Pacific, drought grips the rainforest. The Amazon, devastated by deforestation and fires, is especially vulnerable.
These tiny organoids with working immune systems mimic the function of the GI tract and could be used to study intestinal diseases and drugs to treat them.
