The latest space-exploration rovers were demonstrated by College of Engineering students and faculty as part of the UA's homecoming.
UA astronomers have discovered two dust belts surrounded by a large dust halo around young star HD 95086. The findings provide a glimpse of what our solar system may have resembled in its infancy.
Taking cues from "Star Trek" technology, a UA computer scientist has developed a "Swiss Army knife for science," and his versatile creation is a finalist in a global competition this week.
Wireless transmissions are highly vulnerable to eavesdropping because they typically broadcast in all directions. But UA researchers are devising ingenious ways to create signature-free transmissions.
Repeated satellite observations have firmly established that glaciers are shrinking globally, and the foremost cause is global warming.
UA astronomers will present their discoveries at the largest convention of planetary scientists in the world, held Nov. 9-14 in Tucson.
Safety, economy and sustainability all could result from a new use for mine tailings, the finely ground leftovers of ore extraction that are stored above ground at mine sites.
Over the past few years, astronomers have found an amazing diversity in the architecture of exoplanetary systems, as well as the planets themselves.
Relief appears to be on the way for those with fair skin who experience pain, swelling, burning and scarring of sun-exposed areas.
If you go see the movie "Interstellar," know this: UA astrophysicists are working on something much more impressive, the first pictures of an actual black hole lurking at the center of the Milky Way.
With the help of UA researchers, archaeologists have discovered that the highest known human occupation sites are also the world's oldest.
The United Kingdom Infrared Telescope, considered one of the world’s leading astronomical observatories, is entering a new phase of operations under the UA and University of Hawaii.
Paussus beetles use fake IDs to deceive their ant hosts — and then eat them. UA entomologists say the beetles evolve at a rate rarely found in the animal kingdom.

Yes, they have an image problem, but give them credit for saving cotton farmers millions of dollars in crop damage and insecticide costs. However, their role in pest control is changing, a UA scientist says.
An international research collaboration involving UA scientists and cyberinfrastructure provided by the iPlant Collaborative, based in part at the UA, has used DNA to look back in time at important turning points in plant evolution.
Global warming is supported by the tiniest of details in the soil of northern Sweden, a UA-led international team of researchers finds. And that has implications for the future.
UA graduate student Thandiwe Mweetwa studies lions in her native Zambia, hoping to preserve their dwindling numbers.
Engineers also bring considerable expertise to the detection and prevention of infectious diseases, UA faculty members say.
The UA is the only university in the continental U.S. with one, and the state-of-the-art system has received first "light."
