The TTE rides on a rugged hot-dipped galvanized chassis

Built by folks who know a thing or two about venturing out to Earth's rockiest, dustiest reaches, the Terra Trek TTE camping trailer tows as a versatile mobile basecamp. During the ride, it tucks down for a lower, more compact ride. At camp, the roof-top tent pops open to create sleeping space, accompanying an outdoor kitchen, solar-backed power system, available auxiliary tent room and plenty of storage space.

A Queensland University of Technology (QUT) team led by Southern Cross University's Professor Peter Harrison has developed the "LarvalBot" underwater robot that, for the first time, has succeeded in reseeding damaged areas of Australia's Great Barrier Reef with heat-tolerant baby coral polyps to help combat the effects of predators and climate change.

When we picture a nefarious hacker infiltrating our accounts we like to imagine a super-skilled computer wizard bashing away at a keyboard in front of an epic collection of monitors. But in reality, when many personal accounts are compromised it is because someone simply guessed an obvious password. In a list of the most commonly used passwords of 2018 it was astoundingly revealed that a huge number of people still use "password" as their password.

An illustration of GJ 3470b, shrouded in a cloud of gas as its atmosphere is stripped ...

According to simulations and models, exoplanet sizes should be spread out relatively evenly. But with the exoplanet tally approaching 4,000, that hasn't really been the case. A type of world dubbed a "hot Neptune" has been conspicuously few and far between, but a new observation may explain why. Hubble has now spotted a hot Neptune named GJ 3470b that's vanishing at a record rate.

A new technique called CRISPRa can increase the expression of a single gene without cutting or ...

An exciting new study from researchers at UC San Francisco has demonstrated how a new kind of CRISPR technique can increase the expression of certain genes, instead of the more traditional technique of actively cutting or editing DNA. The method was tested in mice by targeting two genes associated with hunger, with the animals reducing their food intake and not becoming obese.

Image of the InSight lander on the surface of Mars

NASA's InSight lander may have touched down on the surface of Mars, snapped a couple of selfies and broken a power record, but there remains plenty to learn about the interplanetary robot's immediate surroundings. Mission scientists have gained another fresh perspective on the lander's new home, courtesy of intriguing aerial images snapped by the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO).

It was just last month that we heard the latest about an experimental multi-dose capsule that stays in the stomach for up to two weeks, gradually releasing medication. The scientists that created it have now taken things further, with a similar capsule that can communicate from within the body using Bluetooth.

Earth as seen from VSS Unity at the edge of space

After years of preparation, testing, and tragedy, Virgin Galactic has touched the edge of space. This Thursday in the skies over Mojave, California, the company's SpaceShipTwo, VSS Unity, was released from its mothership and fired its hybrid rocket engine for a full minute. This propelled pilots Mark "Forger" Stucky and Frederick "CJ" Sturckow at Mach 3 (1,934 knots, 2,225 mph, 3,581 km/h) to an altitude of 51.4 mi (82.7 km) before returning safely to Earth.
