Capturing the Wind for Later Use, More or Less...As we've said many times in the past, wind power is great, but to use it to its fullest potential, we need to figure out how to cheaply store the energy that it produces at times when
This LED lightbulb is a bright idea from SmartCharge, a bulb that would work even during a power outage.

Has the Earth's Moon's orbit REALLY shifted 34 degrees in the last 12 days as this video report from Bpeirce2 suggests? I'll be the first to admit that I cannot guarantee that the information in this video is accurate, however, the videographer...
A quirk of physics has allowed astronomers to spot a distant exoplanet about 25,000 light years away in a densely packed region of the galaxy known as the galactic bulge. This is notable [...]
An international team of astronomers has discovered an exotic young planet that is not orbiting a star. This free-floating planet, dubbed PSO J318.5-22, is just 80 light-years away from Earth and has a mass only six times that of Jupiter. The planet ...
This image looks like it can't possibly be real, but it is. Taken back in 2006 when the Cassini spacecraft was orbiting the sixth planet, this photo captures a nighttime view of Saturn as light sparkles off of its rings.
At some point in the last few decades, someone took a poster and stuffed it in an unused office at Lawrence Livermore National Labs (LLNL). The poster was made by the W.M Welch [...]
Call it the deep blue dot. For the first time, scientists have seen the visible color of a distant alien world. The exoplanet — called HD 189733b — is a "deep cobalt blue," orbiting its star 63 light-years from Earth, scientists say.
Mars is not a nice place to live: The Red Planet is cold and dry, and its thin atmosphere is dominated by carbon dioxide. And, according to new data collected by NASA's Mars rov...
In no celestial hurry, Neptune has just completed its first orbit around the sun since being discovered 165 years ago by Earthlings.
A dying star is throwing a cosmic tantrum in this combined image from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope and the Galaxy Evolution Explorer (GALEX).
Never mind the Holst, here's the real planet suite...
