In experiments designed to measure the impacts of spaceflight on human muscle health and performance, researchers were surprised to find inactivity had a greater negative effect than hypoxia.
Inactivity bigger threat to muscles in space than low oxygen
The Martian moons Phobos and Deimos were formed after a large object struck the Red Planet a few billion years ago, according to a new model developed by scientists at the Southwest Research Institute.

It's been suggested that dogs, cats and other animals can anticipate or predict an earthquake. For the first time, researchers have applied thorough scientific analysis to investigate the claim.
Dogs probably can't predict earthquakes, scientists say
For the first time, scientists have successfully created optically active, chiral gold nanoparticles using amino acids and peptides.
Peptide induces chirality evolution in a single gold nanoparticle
The attack of the chemical cabinets is no joke. While investigating sources of polychlorinated biphenyl compounds inside the home, scientists identified airborne PCBs being emitted by kitchen cabinetry.
Kitchen cabinets could leach harmful chemical compounds into the air
Closing the gender gap in physics will take hundreds of years, given the current rate of progress.
Closing gender gap in physics 'will take generations'
With more than 50,000 wind turbines in place across the US, wind power now accounts for eight percent of the nation's energy-generating capacity — and experts predict that figure could rise to 20 percent by 2030.
Wind energy takes a toll on birds, but now there's help
