It may be chilly out, but if you bundle up and step outside over the next week, you'll be able to enjoy one of the most active meteor showers of the year: The Geminids.
How to watch the Geminids
Anyone who has seen the film ‘Gravity’ has probably contemplated the horrors of being lost in space.
Spacesuit with emergency button could stop astronauts getting lost in space
Scientists have identified a shift in the gaits of speedy cockroaches as the insects kick it into high gear. The discovery could help engineers train robots to walk more stably and efficiently.

Excitonium has a team of researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign... well... excited! Professor of Physics Peter Abbamonte and graduate students Anshul Kogar and Mindy Rak, with input from colleagues at Illinois, University of California, Berkeley, and University of Amsterdam, have proven the existence of this enigmatic new form of matter, which has perplexed scientists since it was first theorized almost 50 years ago.

The UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) is trying to secure a £1 billion contract to develop technology for use in the first nuclear fusion power plants.
Scientists close to developing nuclear fusion star with same energy as Sun to power homes
Researchers, led by a Purdue University anthropology professor, have found that statistical methods and 3D imaging can be used to accurately measure animal bone cut marks made by prehistoric human butchery, and to help answer pressing questions about human evolution.
New approach measures early human butchering practices
New analysis confirmed the meteorites that formed Earth delivered just the right amount of salt to support life.
Meteors delivered just the right amount of salt to jumpstart life on early Earth
Scientists are using the Carnegie Airborne Observatory, an airplane filled with scientific instruments, to map Malaysian Borneo's carbon stocks. The effort will inform conservation decisions on the South Asian Island.

University of California, Berkeley, researchers have developed a robotic learning technology that enables robots to imagine the future of their actions so they can figure out how to manipulate objects they have never encountered before.
New robots can see into their future
The International Space Station (ISS) has a ‘very diverse’ community of microbes that more closely resembled that of homes than of humans, researchers said.
