Modern roads and developments share more similarities with ancient urban centers than we often realize – which is certainly the case with the sprawling Teotihuacan settlement, once located around 40 kilometers (25 miles) northeast of Mexico City.   Researchers have used LIDAR (“light” and “radar”) scanning to reveal that the contours of Teotihuacan – much

Dogs often seem uncannily shrewd about what we’re trying to tell them. A handful of recent studies offer surprising insights into the ways our canine companions are hard-wired to communicate with people.   The most recent of those studies, published last week in the journal Scientific Reports, found that dogs can understand the difference between their owners’

Incredibly well-preserved tracks of prehistoric baby elephants have revealed a crucial, ancient stomping ground for one of the largest animals to walk on Earth’s surface since the dinosaurs.   On a beach in what is now southwest Spain, archaeologists have identified 34 sets of footprints belonging to the straight-tusked elephant (Palaeoloxodon antiquus). These huge land

Firing beams of neutrons at samples of silicon could lead us to an elusive, unknown ‘fifth force’ of nature, according to researchers. Using a technique called pendellösung interferometry, a team of physicists led by Benjamin Heacock of the National Institute of Standards and Technology have used neutron beams to probe the crystal structure of silicon

Animal farming accounts for twice as many greenhouse gas emissions as plants grown for consumption, according to a study published Monday that mapped agricultural activities worldwide.   What humans eat accounts for a major chunk of the emissions behind climate-change – transportation, deforestation, cold-storage. and the digestive systems of cattle all send polluting gases into

Physicists sifting through old particle accelerator data have found evidence of a highly-elusive, never-before-seen process: a so-called triangle singularity.  First envisioned by Russian physicist Lev Landau in the 1950s, a triangle singularity refers to a rare subatomic process where particles exchange identities before flying away from each other.   In this scenario, two particles –

NASA is commonly thought of as America’s space agency, but its name also emphasizes another research area. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration is also America’s civilian aerospace research organization.    In that role, it has been instrumental in developing new technologies ranging from rocket engines to aircraft control systems. Part of that role is
