ORCHARD, Texas, Aug.
Replacing gasoline and diesel with plant-based bio fuels is crucial to curb climate change.
Fool's gold is providing scientists with valuable insights into a turning point in the Earth's evolution, which took place billions of years ago.
In the search for superconductors, finding ways to compress hydrogen into a metal has been a point of focus ever since scientists predicted many years ago that electricity would flow, uninhibited, through such a material.
Where does water end and air begin? Scientists found that some water molecules exist as both a gas and a liquid by splitting the difference between the two, according to a new study in Nature.
Acid rain is any form of precipitation that is unusually acidic, meaning that is possesses high levels of hydrogen ions. It can have harmful effects on aquatic animals, plants, and infrastructure. Acid rain is caused by emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide, which react with the water molecules within the atmosphere to produce acids. Nitrogen oxides can be produced naturally by lightening strikes. Sulfur dioxide can be produced naturally by volcanic eruptions. The chemicals that are...
