Radiation is a form of energy released in the form of rays, particles, or waves. It can be found all around us, from the sun and stars, to man-made sources like cell phones, computers, and nuclear power plants. Radiation can be both beneficial and harmful. It can be used to diagnose and treat illnesses and diseases, or it can cause long-term health problems such as cancer. On this page, you can find the latest news, articles, and videos about radiation and how it affects us.
Researchers reveal the rapid evolution and radiation of reptiles actually began before the end of the Permian in connection to the steadily increasing temperatures, which drove successive climate changes over 60 million years.
Evolution plays a central role in the field of zoology, with new questions to be chased and an ever expanding field of research. In this Naturally Speaking Short, Karen Hotopp (@KarenHotopp) interviews visiting researcher Professor Walter Salzburger of the University of Basel, and asks him about his research on adaptive radiation and the colourful cichlids…
First-of-its-kind experimental evidence contradicts traditional theories about the emission and absorption of radiation by plasmas. While solids, liquids, and gases are familiar states of matter, there is a fourth state called plasmas which is the most common form of matter in the universe. It can
The latest data from HERA improves the search for cosmic dawn radiation and tests theories of galaxy formation. An array of 350 radio telescopes located in the Karoo desert of South Africa is getting closer to detecting "cosmic dawn" - the time period following the Big Bang when stars first ignited
In the first step toward understanding how dogs—and perhaps humans—might adapt to intense environmental pressures such as exposure to radiation, heavy metals, or toxic chemicals, researchers have ...
