A newly developed nanomaterial can release hydrogen from seawater much more cheaply and efficiently than existing methods, potentially giving us another way of unlocking this most sustainable of energy sources. Finding a way to produce hydrogen from water that isn’t prohibitively costly in price and energy could significantly reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. And

They kill by coiling around their prey and squeezing until its heart stops. Then the serpents swallow their victims whole. It’s certainly

Jacques Dubochet, Joachim Frank and Richard Henderson have won the Nobel Prize in chemistry “for developing cryo-electron microscopy for the high-resolution structure determination of biomolecules in solution,” the Nobel committee announced Wednesday. Cryo-electron microscopy is “a cool method for imaging the materials of life,” said Nobel committee member Göran K. Hansson from Stockholm. The development

This Northern Hemisphere summer, researchers spent two months collecting samples from a submerged landmass known as Zealandia. As a result, we could gain new insight into everything from ancient life forms to climate change. Tens of millions of years ago, a landmass that’s being referred to as Zealandia was largely submerged beneath the Pacific Ocean.

Elon Musk plans to start colonising Mars within five years. Musk tweeted on Monday that he would reveal “major improvements” to his plan at the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) in Adelaide, most likely in the shape of changes to a two-part, 40-storey-tall vehicle called the Interplanetary Transport System which is expected to take the first
