Suspended tents are one of the big trends to sweep through the camping scene lately, with a range of shelters available that hoist adventurers into the air and away from the creepy crawlies, the cold, and anything else that might threaten a good night's rest. The Bivymok is a new two-part solution for those fed up with ground-based sleeping, consisting of a single-pole tent and a tree-suspended hammock platform built to hold some seriously heavy loads.

Brown University scientists have studied giant cancer cells, seen in the middle of the image surrounded ...

As if cancer wasn't scary enough already, it turns out the cells have video game-style boss versions that are bigger, more resilient and can travel further. These so-called "giant" cancer cells contribute to many of the disease's most dangerous abilities, but they remain relatively unstudied. Now, researchers from Brown University have investigated these troublemakers, revealing some physical characteristics that could eventually unlock new forms of treatment.

Downtown Mumbai, with slums in the foreground

Drone photography has quickly come to offer us entirely new perspectives on the world we live in, and for photographer Johnny Miller, the reality of that world isn't all rainbows, waterfalls and gorgeous cityscapes. The South African-based freelancer has been using these flying robots to document inequality around the world, resulting in a stunning and confronting set of images that highlight the stark contrast between the haves and the have-nots.

A newly discovered biological mechanism may explain why sufferers of inflammatory bowel disease report marijuana can ...

For decades, clinicians have been hearing consistent anecdotal reports from patients suffering inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) that cannabis can directly alleviate many debilitating symptoms associated with the condition. A new study from scientists at the University of Massachusetts Medical School and the University of Bath has uncovered the first biological mechanism that could potentially explain how cannabis reduces intestinal inflammation.

A new energy storage system can release either hydrogen gas or electricity

The filling station of tomorrow could be able to service electric and hydrogen-fueled cars from not only the same location, but the same pump thanks to a potentially revolutionary breakthrough by chemists at the University of Glasgow. Using nanomolecules suspended in a fluid, the new battery system would not only allow such vehicles to refuel in seconds instead of hours, but can produce either electricity or hydrogen gas on demand.

The Tdap vaccine, recommended for mothers during pregnancy, has been confidently confirmed to not increase the ...

In 2005, a combination vaccine called Tdap was introduced to protect against tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis. By 2013 the CDC began recommending the vaccine for all pregnant women as evidence suggested it effectively conferred immunity to the child. A large study from researchers at Kaiser Permanente has now shown prenatal Tdap vaccinations do not in any way increase a child's risk for developing autism, adding even further weight to the massive body of scientific evidence refuting this modern misconception.
