Wearables have gotten a bad rap lately, and it's probably because of glorified pedometers like the Fitbit Blaze and Apple Watch that look dorky and don't do much beyond counting steps. And I'll admit, I'm one of the people that will readily throw shade at these products for failing
For the first time, scientists have demonstrated laser communications between a microsatellite and a ground station while using the quantum nature of photons to secure the data being transmitted. As the world edges closer to quantum computing, current methods of securing transmitted data may be rendered
Xavier Jubier creates detailed models of solar and lunar eclipses that work with Google Maps to show precisely where the shadow of the sun will fall on the Earth, and what the eclipse will look like at each point. Where did it come from?
When the Great American Solar Eclipse sweeps across the continental U.S. on Aug. 21, astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) will have a chance to see it from a unique vantage point.

Never judge a quiet sun by its boring name. A trove of data from a NASA mission finds that the seemingly low-activity areas of the sun are not as dormant as the name might suggest. Researchers in Wales used the NASA data to examine the outermost layer of the sun's atmosphere known as the solar
Intense radiation and particles streaming from their host star have likely taken a huge toll on all seven of these worlds, even the three that apparently lie within the "habitable zone," where liquid water could theoretically exist on a planet's surface, according to the new research.
