SpaceX successfully launched their new heavy lift launch vehicle today, the Falcon Heavy. SpaceX take another step towards their goal of sending humans to Mars. Not only was the test flight successful but all three first stage boosters were successfully recovered for future use. The Falcon Heavy is able to launch 64 tonnes into low Earth orbit, making it the world's most powerful rocket by more than a factor of two! All with the ability of being able to reuse the three first stages.

It's something we take for granted today, but there was a time when the concept of the number zero didn't exist. In a recent finding, the invention of zero has been pushed back 500 years.

Carbon dating has revealed that the Bakshali manuscript housed in Oxford contains the earliest known version of our modern zero symbol -- and it is nearly 2000 years old

Australian researchers' historical discovery pushes back the invention of trigonometry over a thousand years.

A Babylonian clay tablet dating back 3,700 years has been identified as the world's oldest and most accurate trigonometric table, suggesting the Babylonians beat the ancient Greeks to the invention of trigonometry by over 1,000 years.

An amazing new medical technology shows promise for future revolutionary treatments. The treatment involves applying a focussed and intense electric field into skin cells to reprogram them into other type of cells. These new cells can then be used to treat injury or diseased parts of the body.

Researchers at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and Ohio State's College of Engineering have developed a new technology, Tissue Nanotransfection (TNT), that can generate any cell type of interest for treatment within the patient's own body. This technology may be used to repair injure...

Mathematics finally shows us how bees are able to fly.

The tiny wings on bees shouldn’t be able to lift their big bodies. How they fly has eluded mathematicians since the 1930s, but the mystery is now solved

Students, here's a neat technique to allow you to quickly draw a pretty decent circle, just using a pen or pencil and paper. No drawing compass required.

If you ask someone if they could draw a perfect circle freehand the answer is likely to be 'no'. Well now you can surprise them with this simple technique.
