Salk scientists studied complex decision-making capabilities in a worm with just 302 neurons and a mouth full of teeth. It's smarter than you would think.

For the first time in nearly 1500 years, fewer than half the people in England and Wales consider themselves Christian.
Cotton mask fibers prove 33 percent more effective at blocking viruses in trials.
Resilience training can be instrumental in helping employees recover from difficulties and embrace change in the workplace.
More than any other of Einstein's equations, E = mc² is the most recognizable to people. But what does it all mean?
The Poisson distribution has everyday applications in science, finance, and insurance. To compare the results of some biomedical studies, more people ought to be familiar with it.
Yet another ocean monster has been discovered.
The laws of physics state that you can't create or destroy matter without also creating or destroying an equal amount of antimatter. So how are we here?
The universe is filled with unlikely events, but is also full of ways to fool ourselves.
Physics demands that it couldn’t be any other way. Here’s why. Ask anyone — even someone with no background in science — to name something that Einstein did, and odds are they’ll come back with […]
Drop sodium in water, and a violent, even explosive reaction will occur. But quantum physics is needed to explain why.
Move over, IC 1101. You may be impressively large, but you never stood a chance against the largest known galaxy: Alcyoneus.
Previously, only the brightest and most active galaxies could pierce the obscuring wall of cosmic dust. At last, normal galaxies break through.
If the electromagnetic and weak forces unify to make the electroweak force, maybe, at even higher energies, something even greater happens?
When we look out at the Universe, even with Hubble, we're only seeing the closest, biggest, brightest galaxies. Here's where the rest are.
The majority of the matter in our Universe isn't made of any of the particles in the Standard Model. Could the axion save the day?
In 1990, we only knew of the ones in our Solar System. Today, we know of thousands, and that's just the tip of the iceberg.
And if it does, could we ever measure it?
Often viewed as a theoretical, calculational tool only, the Lamb Shift proved their existence. If you spend enough time listening to theoretical physicists, it starts to sound like there are […]
Just 12 million light-years away, the galaxies Messier 81 and 82 offer a nearby preview of the Milky Way-Andromeda merger.
For centuries, men prevented women from writing music. These classical composers broke with social norms and made their mark on history.
Hubble's deepest views of space revealed fewer than 10% of the Universe's galaxies. James Webb will change that forever.
If argumentation led to nothing, it would soon be thrown into the evolutionary dustbin.
We haven't seen a partial eclipse lasting this long since 1440, and won't again until 2669. North America is perfectly positioned for 2021's.
Hubble, our greatest space-based observatory today, is just the beginning. The Hubble Space Telescope has been astronomy’s most revolutionary observatory in history. The stars and galaxies we see today didn’t […]
The new feature uses Amazon's neural text-to-speech technology, which allows it to produce phrases that weren't priorly recorded.
Is history decided by discernible laws or does it unfold based on random, unpredictable occurrences?
A few years ago, the first dark matter-free galaxies were announced, and then immediately disputed. Now, there are too many to ignore.
The Demo-2 mission represents a new era for American spaceflight.
There are ~400 billion stars in the Milky Way, and ~2 trillion galaxies in the visible Universe. But what if we aren't typical?
