Researchers studying the lakes of liquid water that are buried under Mars’ southern polar ice caps are beginning to question whether or not these structures are indeed liquid, as the radar data would indicate, due to the lack of a heat source that would prevent the water from freezing. Butread more

Researchers with the University of Tokyo may have directly witnessed the quantum reaction that results from the exposure of biological tissue to a magnetic field, a mechanism hypothesized to be behind the magneto-receptive sense that can guide birds on their long migratory routes. Although it has been long established that certain speciesread more

In 1842, mathematician and physicist Samuel Earnshaw laid out a theorem that states that it’s impossible to project a magnetic field into empty space: any magnetic field found in nature will always be centered on the physical object that’s producing it. But a team of scientists set about theorizing how one could circumventread more
