In a time where the products of fossil fuels run amok in our atmosphere, researchers have been busy in finding clean, efficient and feasible power resources. Solar, wind and fusion power techniques all have their negatives and and so we turn towards the delicate processes that bind nature itself, particularly photosynthesis.

Plants make their energy through a chemical reaction in their leaves. Using the photons from the sun, pl...

Turritopsis dohrnii is a species of small biologically immortal jellyfish capable of reverting back to sexually immature, colonial stage after having reached sexual maturity as a solitary individual through a process called trans-differentiation. 

As the tantalizing wave of debris encumbers me, my only safe haven is no more. The gurgling onslaught of waste seems to be my last encounter in the Japanese waters. As I hol...

Born Neils Stensen in late 17th century era Denmark, today Nicolas Steno is immortalized by many as the founder of modern geology and specifically modern stratigraphy, along with inducing a change in the way of scientific thinking emphasizing on empiricism over logic and past theory.

Since its introduction the solar still has remained solely a concept, with its design and structure fully flexible and dependent on its feasibility in the area

The world is currently facing a significant scarcity of clean water and traditional methods of water purification such as nano-filtration and reverse osmosis are extremely expensive and cannot be utilized in remote areas where the problem is most imminent.

Smog is the result of the chemical reaction of sunlight, nitrogen oxides and volatile organic compounds in the atmosphere, which include ozone.

Smog, by now fairly familiar to most of the citizens residing in Punjab, is a term used to describe a mix of smoke and fog. Smog caused in Lahore as well as across parts of Central and Southern Punjab, earlier this year, is largely being attributed to the air pollutants coming from the...

In is 1979 and the Nobel Prize for Physics is awarded to Professor Dr. Abdus Salam, the first Muslim Nobel Prize laureate in Science.

Dr. Abdus Salam proved the electroweak unification theory of electromagnetism and weak nuclear forces, though separate in today’s world, were united at the time of the Big Bang at 246 GeV and over. The breakthrough is considered the biggest stepping stone in the Grand Unified Theory (GUT).

Our Earth came into being when the first debris, whizzing around in the Solar Nebula, barged into each other to form the core of our planet. The heat energy produced as a result of those countless powered collisions was of such extraordinary magnitude that even 4.5 billion years later, the heat has retained its 6000°C Sun-like temperature inside Earth’s core. National Geographic’s documentary on the evolution of Earth through...
