Two Harvard scientists have succeeded in creating an entirely new substance long believed to be the “holy grail” of physics — metallic hydrogen, a material of unparalleled power that could one day propel humans into deep space.
Well over half of the Greenland ice sheet appears to have melted to bedrock in the not-too-distant past, when temperatures weren’t much warmer than they are today
Scientists create first stable semisynthetic lifeform, but warn that complex organism is a long way off
