Princeton University researchers have demonstrated a new way of making controllable "quantum wires" in the presence of a magnetic field, according to a new study
University of Washington researchers have led the development of Project Sidewalk, an online crowdsourcing game that lets anyone with an internet connection use Google Street View to virtually explore neighborhoods and label curb ramps, missing or rough sidewalks, obstacles and more
ROV Jason is Woods Hole's state of the art Remotely Operated Vehicle. Supported by the National Science Foundation and equipped with sonars, video and still imaging systems and sampling capabilities, Jason can investigate the deep ocean and seafloor.
Researchers aboard the National Science Foundation-funded research vessel (R/V) Endeavor are studying plankton and other materials in the waters off the coast of South America to tackle a pressing question in oceanography
Scientists have created a periodic table of droplet motions, inspired in part by parallels between the symmetries of atomic orbitals, which determine elements' positions on the classic periodic table, and the energies that determine droplet shapes
A new learning system developed by MIT researchers improves robots' abilities to mold materials into target shapes and make predictions about interacting with solid objects and liquids
This is the HOV Alvin... the Navy's Human Occupied Vehicle, supported by the National Science Foundation
A team of researchers visits a seed bank, the Tomato Genetics Resource Center, where scientists try to preserve the genetic diversity available in wild tomato relatives and make it available for crop breeders
Researchers are looking to nature for inspiration in developing a new method of underwater plasma generation, using shrimp as a model -- a discovery which could provide significant improvements for actions ranging from water sterilization to drilling
This video describes a food chain that extends from consumers, producers, breeders and the wild crop relatives that breeders depend on for crop improvement.
Intelligent machines are here, but do humans trust them? And how can that even be measured?
Barnacles are sticky little critters that hitch rides on the backs of humpback and gray whales. They hold a wealth of information that is helping scientists better understand how whales might respond to the current changes in Earth's climate
Seagrass shaves waves, right whale trails, lessen coral stressin' and a hurricane in a pool
As a top predator, the mountain lion contributes to a stable ecosystem which affects all parts of the food chain; their absence can have detrimental effects
Karletta Chief explains her Indige-FEWSS project to address real world food, energy and water problems in Navajo Nation communities
With funding from the National Science Foundation's Directorate for Computer and Information Science and Engineering (CISE), researchers at the University of Washington have created a new smartphone app that can detect fluid behind the eardrum by simply using a piece of paper
Carnegie Mellon University researchers have used computationally controlled knitting machines to create plush toys and other knitted objects that are actuated by tendons
Research at Carnegie Mellon University around drinking water systems has helped improve the water quality of Pittsburgh's Monongahela River
Migration plays a significant role in the survival of the lion species as it helps mix genetics throughout California, making the species stronger as a whole
