While cancer sometimes feels like a curse on humanity, when isolated to a single organ it's become increasingly treatable. Often, the problem comes when a cancer spreads, because it makes removing it far more difficult—but now scientists have discovered a molecule that might encourage cancer to remain in just the…
If there's one fact of computing life, it's that there's never enough damn storage, and if you think it's bad now, just wait 'til you're downloading 4K movies. Still, research is at least keeping up, and now scientists can store bits of information on single molecules—which could pave the way for petabyte SSDs.
Scientists have discovered a new molecule that will make your teeth cavityproof and may change dental care forever. They have appropriately named it Keep 32—for your 32 teeth—and it can kill the bacteria that produces cavities in 60 seconds flat.
Ohio State University researchers have captured the first-ever images of atoms moving within a molecule using a novel technique that turns one of the molecules own electrons into a kind of flash bulb. The technique has yielded a new way of imaging molecules, but could one day help scientists to intimately control…
Swedish scientists have just discovered a new molecule—one that has the potential of boosting future rocket fuel efficiency by 20 to 30% compared to the best fuels around today.
Two potential signatures of life on Saturn's moon Titan have been found by the Cassini spacecraft. But scientists are quick to point out that non-biological chemical reactions could also be behind the observations.
Since the first transistor was demonstrated 62 years ago, researchers have tried to make the device smaller and smaller. Now they've finally achieved an extreme point in their quest: A single-molecule transistor. Yes, that's really, really freakin' small.
Maarten DeCeulaer’s Nomad Light Molecules lighting project consists of individual light "atoms" that can stand alone, but are recharged by plugging back into a "molecule."
