The results of experiments involving more than 3,000 participants demonstrates that increasing the realism of violent video games does not necessarily boost aggression in gamers.
Researchers have developed a system to collect data on consumers' energy usage and comfort within buildings.
For years, tech industry financiers showed little interest in start-up companies that made computer chips.
After spending three months at a temperature of just 20 degrees Celsius above absolute zero, the massive James Webb Space Telescope emerged from a large vacuum chamber at the end of 2017. Now, after reviewing data from testing done there, scientists have given the instrument a clean bill of health, moving it one step closer to space.
A new NASA Earth science mission in the early stages of design may achieve a transformational advance in our understanding of the global carbon cycle by mapping concentrations of key carbon gases from a new vantage point: geostationary orbit.
Wavy Transistors That Vertically Gain Width Without Increasing Their On-Chip Footprint for Future Flexible Displays
