Ears are for hearing—everyone knows that. But for a creature called the Cuvier's beaked whale, hearing starts in the throat, a new study finds. The observation might help explain how all whales hear, researchers say. The work might also help scientists u Read More



The Disappearing Newspaper

What's black and white and read all over? Not newspapers, at least not anymore. In fact, if you're like most young people, you probably don't read the newspaper at all. In one recent survey, just 19 percent of 18-to-34-year-olds said they read a newspape Read More

Silk’s superpowers

Spider-Man isn’t the only person with an interest in spider silk. While Spidey uses the threads to zigzag from building to building, or to snare a bad guy, scientists are investigating silk for different reasons. And though researchers have learned a lot Read More

Sky Dust Keeps Falling on Your Head

Any time you go outside, you get pummeled by invisible storms of dust. Even on a perfectly sunny day, you inhale pieces of dead bugs. Floating specks of hair and pollen settle on your skin. Tiny chunks of comets might even fall on your head from outer spa Read More

Slumber by the numbers

It’s an important question: “On an average school night, how many hours of sleep do you get?” More than 12,000 high school students were recently asked that during a survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The overall answer: not enough Read More

A Framework for Growing Bone

If you've ever broken a bone, you know what a pain the healing process can be. You may end up wearing a cast for weeks, aching and itching as you wait for the fractured bone to get better. In cases of severe bone damage, surgeons sometimes take bone from Read More

Cacophony Acoustics

You're in the middle of a bustling school lunchroom. Some girls are yelling behind you. Right beside you, a boy is singing along with his iPod. Other kids are playing a rowdy game in the corner. Meanwhile, you are trying to talk to your friend across the Read More

Giant snakes invading North America

There may be a strange, slithering invasion coming from the South. Big snakes like anacondas, boa constrictors and pythons now live in the wilds of southern Florida. Although not originally native to the United States, some are now being born there. Read More

Middle school science adventures

Have you ever noticed something — like ants in your backyard, or a smoke from a forest fire, or the moon at night — and thought to yourself “I wonder…?” These two words can lead to a science adventure and they recently brought 30 middle school students t Read More

How to Fly Like a Bat

It takes weeks, treats, and a lot of patience to train a bat to fly inside a wind tunnel. Bats already know how to fly, of course. The problem is to get them to do it inside a small tunnel with the wind rushing at them. So scientists at Brown University Read More

Electronic Paper Turns a Page

Reading and computer screens don't go together very well. If you've ever tried to do lots of online research for a school report, stayed up late playing computer games, or gone on an instant-messaging marathon with some friends, you probably know what I Read More
