Increasing natural disasters and aging schools built before modern codes existed put thousands of school-aged children at risk each day. A new guide and webinar series offer solutions.
Nicotinomide riboside (NR) mimics caloric restriction, kick-starting the same pathways responsible for reducing cardiovascular aging.
Electric vehicles may one day be able to recharge while driving down the highway, drawing wireless power directly from plates installed in the road that would make it possible to drive hundreds–if not thousands–of miles without having to plug in.
A new map of the Northern Hemisphere shows how and why different areas receive snow or rain at near-freezing temperatures.
Paying rural villagers to cut down fewer trees boosts conservation not only while the payments are being made but even after they’re discontinued, according to a new CU Boulder study.
A NASA-funded cube satellite built and operated by CU Boulder researchers will study the inner radiation belt of Earth’s magnetosphere, providing new insight into the energetic particles that can disrupt satellites and threaten spacewalking astronauts.
A new CU Boulder study shows that one hour of bright light at night nearly eliminates melatonin production in young children and keeps it suppressed an hour after light’s out. Structural differences may make children’s immature eyes more vulnerable to body clock disruption from light.
A new study of 272,000 people found that the more frequently people work the night shift, the greater their likelihood of having diabetes.
A study led by University of Colorado Boulder researchers provides new insight into the Moon’s excessive equatorial bulge, a feature that solidified in place over four billion years ago as the Moon gradually distanced itself from the Earth.
The changing topography of ice sheets in the Northern Hemisphere during the last Ice Age forced changes in the climate of Antarctica, a previously undocumented inter-polar climate change mechanism.
CU Boulder researchers have developed a new, non-invasive method for assessing mitochondrial function and a ‘metabolic rehab’ program to improve it
A study of 7,000 Facebook comments found that even in the wake of a death, people are remarkably mean to each other online. A few technological fixes could improve things, researchers say.
A solar instrument package designed and built by the University of Colorado Boulder to help monitor the planet’s climate is now set for launch Dec. 12 aboard a SpaceX rocket from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
A first-of its kind report card for the organizations charged with supporting Olympic sports down to the youth level found much need for improvement in transparency, democratic processes and checks and balances.
Eleven days after Boulder-born Shalane Flanagan won the New York City Marathon in new state-of-the-art racing flats known as “4%s,” University of Colorado Boulder researchers have published the study that inspired the shoe’s name, confirming that the shoes reduce the amount of energy used to run by 4 percent.
A rash of earthquakes in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico recorded between 2008 and 2010 was likely due to fluids pumped deep underground during oil and gas wastewater disposal, says a new University of Colorado Boulder study.
