2017 was a spectacular year in almost every facet of the auction industry specialising in historically significant and storied objects. The world's most valuable painting, gemstone, earrings, wristwatch, manuscript and religious document all changed hands, but as usual, scant regard was paid to the landmark scientific texts which underpin mankind's understanding of the world. ..Continue Readi
The remarkable success of Stefano Boeri's Boscoe Verticale in Milan has resulted in the architect replicating the greenery-covered tower elsewhere, including Lausanne, Switzerland and Paris, France.

Fisker Inc. has plenty of experience teasing and detailing its debut car ... more than a year of it, in fact. But before 2018, the all-electric EMotion had yet to be properly introduced to the world at a formal premiere. That's all changed at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, where Fisker is showing off a devilishly red EMotion, its compelling interior and the cutting edge battery techno
Incredibly powerful but gone in a flash, mysterious signals known as Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs) are regularly detected in all corners of the sky. A repeating signal known as FRB 121102 was already the weirdest one out there, but now an international team of astronomers has found that this oddball is even odder than previously thought. The radio waves from FRB 121102 are being "twisted" to an ex
We could learn a lot about energy production from plants, who have been tirelessly turning water and sunlight into energy for millions of years. Recently engineers have mimicked photosynthesis with devices like artificial leaves, or harnessed it with fuel cells powered by algae. Now, a University of Cambridge team has developed a new design for the latter, which is apparently five times more
Over the last few decades architects and designers have started burrowing. Rammed earth structures, reclaimed war bunkers, and homes dug into hills have turned buildings inward instead of upward. Here we present a gallery featuring the most fascinating, weird, and experimental underground designs from recent years...Continue Reading Gallery: From buried bunkers to hobbit homes - a look at und
In what sounds like the beginning of an 80s adventure movie, in 1998 a group of kids had their basketball game interrupted by a meteorite crashing to Earth just yards away.

Now, a comprehensive chemical analysis of the two meteorites

Ordinarily, people who are receiving new joints (such as hip implants) are placed on intravenous antibiotics before and after the operation. There might be a better method of reducing the chances of infection, however. A Houston Methodist orthopedic surgeon has created time-release antibiotic beads that are implanted with the joint...Continue Reading Tiny beads may prevent post-joint-replacem
There's a problem with using antiretroviral drugs to treat or prevent HIV – because multiple drugs need to be taken on a daily basis, many patients simply don't bother to keep doing so.
