Invasive surgeries involve tools that are rigid and there’s a high risk of accidentally puncturing or tearing tissue. Identifying the need for minimally invasive surgical tools, a team of Harvard scientists have designed a device that functions as a highly intelligent robotic arm.

For years, researchers have been curious about the rainy season in the Amazon that is timed a little differently than other tropical regions. The mystery is finally solved as researchers have now discovered that the trees in Amazon create their own rainy season. Imagine an ecosystem so self-sufficient that it makes its own rain.

Forty years ago, the possibility of neutrino-interactions was predicted by many physicists. However, it was not until now that the concept was supported with evidence.

As of August 2, 2017, humans have used up their annual allowance for water, soil, and clean air. So from this day forward, the resources we consume are not sustainable.

People suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome experience debilitating exhaustion that lasts for large periods of time. Now new research findings explain the primary drivers of the disease.   

Gene editing, which has always stirred controversy among scientists and non-scientists alike, could become a legitimate procedure very soon. The first genetically modified human embryo has been created in the U.S. by scientists.

While people born after 1980 are considered "digital natives," people born before 1980 are described as "digital immigrants." A recent study, however, stated that the concept of digital native is a myth and that there is no evidence to claim that different generations assimilate information differently.

According to a new study, a supernova explosion caused an intergalactic transfer i.e. there was movement of matter between galaxies. This implies that humans as well as much of the material in the Milky Way is made up of “extragalactic matter.”

Most of us have been warned at some point by our doctors that failing to do so would increase the risk of the infectious bacteria developing resistance. However, a recently published study states this is a baseless claim and could do more harm than good. Shorter antibiotic courses, it is concluded, work just as effectively to treat infections.

A new project, SUSTAIN, in Iceland is all set to uncover the mysteries behind the formation of islands. Early next month, the team will drill two holes into the heart of Surtsey, a volcanic island, to analyze the interaction of volcanic rock, seawater, and subterranean microbes.
