The universe is generally believed to be expanding at an accelerating rate, thanks to a mysterious force dubbed dark energy. But how exactly does this force work? Researchers in the UK have conducted an experiment to test a hypothesis that this fifth fundamental force works on single atoms – and found no trace of it...

Exactly how life sprung out of non-living matter is one of biology's biggest mysteries. But with continued research into our own origin story, it's starting to seem like life on early Earth was just itching to be born. In new research from Georgia Tech and the Scripps Research Institute, scientists cooked up a "primordial soup" and found that some of the crucial building blocks of life spo
One of the original designers of a pioneering Apollo Moon experiment is leading an effort to create an upgraded version for future lunar landing missions. A team under professor emeritus at the University of Maryland (UMD), Doug Currie are developing a more accurate version of the Lunar Laser Ranging experiment that was left behind by Apollo 11, 14, and 15 between 1969 and 1971 that allows
Like the Wright Brothers, evolution didn't get flight exactly right the first time. It takes experimentation to find the best design, and now palaeontologists have found one of nature's quirky side projects – a strange dinosaur that was covered in feathers but had leathery bat-like wings... Continue Reading Batwinged, feathered dinosaur was a weird, failed experiment in flight Category: S
The latest SpaceX Dragon cargo mission to the International Space Station (ISS) included an experiment that could help to combat the ravages of time here on Earth. The European experiment will test how ceramic nanoparticles interact with cells to act as an anti-aging supplement that not only holds promise for alleviating the effects of growing old, but also for combatting chronic illness a
aerial photos reveal groups of sugi (japanese cedar) trees swell toward the sky, creating the mysterious circular forests. The post strange ‘crop circles’ appearing in japan are the result of 1973 experiment appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
In the modern day, we're used to being able to send messages to specific people over long distances, usually by way of a phone. But now, scientists at MIT have developed a way to use a laser to beam an audible message through thin air to a person standing on the other side of a room, so that only they can hear it... Continue Reading Breakthrough experiment beams audio messages across the r
So far, Earth is the only place in the universe that we know for sure is home to life, but there's evidence that its chemical building blocks may start stacking up in space. Now, NASA astrophysicists have managed to create DNA sugars in a vacuum chamber that simulates interstellar space, and in follow-up studies found other sugar derivatives in meteorite samples...

'project correl' invites visitors to the exhibition to collectively build a virtual structure that will grow over the coming months. The post zaha hadid presents real-time modeling VR experiment in first latin american exhibition appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
This Halloween scientists at MIT's Media Lab are embarking on a massive social experiment. Called BeeMe, the project will let internet users control a real human actor, suggesting, and collectively voting on, this person's every action. New Atlas reached out to Niccolo Pescetelli, one of the creators behind the experiment to find out exactly what is about to happen... Continue Reading MIT'
