Research has identified the tiny chameleon Rhampholeon spinosus as having the ultimate high-speed tongue. When it flicks its tongue at a fly, it reaches peak acceleration 264 times the force of gravity.
Researchers have created a solar cell that can stretch like an accordion, allowing it to tilt along the sun’s trajectory and capture more energy. The unique solar cell is inspired by kirigami, the ancient art of paper cutting.
Mars may one day have rings similar to Saturn’s famous halo, research suggests.
NASA’s orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory has mapped an enormous coronal hole — a gap in the sun’s outer layer and magnetic field — which is the size of 50 Earths
A new technique developed at Australia’s CSIRO not only reveals fingerprints in cases where dusting won’t, but makes them glow under UV light.
