A process similar to that used to store human embryos is being used by scientists to save native Australian plants under threat from invasive myrtle rust.
Researchers have developed a new class of so-called heterogeneous geminal-atom catalysts for more environmentally friendly pharmaceutical manufacturing processes.
Scientists say that Earth's vital signs have worsened beyond anything we have seen — and people with lung conditions are particularly at risk.
Scientists found that 71 of the 162 ice shelves surrounding Antarctica have reduced in volume over 25 years from 1997 to 2021, with a net release of 7.5 trillion tonnes of meltwater into the oceans.
Scientists have found the most ancient and distant blast of cosmic radio waves to date, located so far away that its light took eight billion years to reach Earth.
UK researchers have brought clarity to the longstanding question of how starch granules form in the seeds of Triticeae crops — wheat, barley and rye.
Initial studies of a sample of the 4.5-billion-year-old asteroid Bennu show evidence of high carbon content and water, which together indicate that the building blocks of life on Earth may be found in the rock.
A new process can upcycle most plastics into chemical ingredients useful for energy storage, using LEDs and a commercially available catalyst — and all at room temperature.
Scientists have identified a melting ice sheet as the probable trigger of a major climate-change event just over 8000 years ago.
A new breakthrough in chronic myeloid leukaemia testing can help identify patients who are strong candidates for lifelong treatment-free remission.
Ozone substantially changes the size and scent of floral odour plumes given off by flowers, reducing honeybees' ability to recognise odours by up to 90%.
NASA's OSIRIS-REx spacecraft travelled across the solar system and back to visit an asteroid named Bennu and collect a sample — a sample that has now been brought back to Earth.
MPXV-CRISPR is reportedly capable of detecting mpox virus in clinical samples with acute precision and at a faster rate than any other method.
Astronomers have discovered a giant 'bubble' of galaxies, measuring one billion light-years across, which they believe to be a fossil-like remnant of the birth of the universe.
Funding agencies from the US, Australia, Canada and the UK have pledged more than AU$118 million towards the NSF Global Centers in Climate Change and Clean Energy program.
