Canon's 20 cm square ultrahigh-sensitivity CMOS image sensor next to its Rebel T3i DSLR

Canon first revealed its ultrahigh-sensitivity CMOS image sensor back in 2010, where its gargantuan proportions were given as 202 x 205 mm (7.95 x 8.07 in) – almost 40 times the size of a 35 mm full-frame CMOS sensor. Now the veteran camera maker has revealed that the sensor has been used to record video of meteors at a level "so dark that image capture had not been possible until now."

The Medusae Fossae Formation is a huge rocky structure that has had scientists puzzling over its origins for decades, but the new work suggests it's the result of massive volcanic eruptions that would have changed the climate of the Red Planet.

It may look like a regular stent, but the smart stent has a tiny sensor to ...

Stents are usually passive devices, implanted into clogged arteries to prop them open and prevent heart attacks. Unfortunately, it's all too common for the artery to continue to narrow around the implant, causing further complications. Now, researchers at the University of British Columbia (UBC) have developed a surgery-ready smart stent that keeps watch for the early warning signs of narrowing arteries, and sends out a wireless signal to alert the patient and doctors.

New research from the University of Illinois at Chicago has examined a form of time-restricted eating known as the 16:8 diet and the small study has found it could indeed be an effective form of weight loss.
