Here's some exciting news: Harvard researcher Ronald A. DePhinho has discovered a way to reverse age degeneration in mice, opening the door to the possibility of a similar process working on humans.
Scientists at CERN have managed to trap 38 atoms of antihydrogen, marking the first time outside a Dan Brown novel that anti-atoms have actually been harnessed. And it only took 335 tries.
Concrete eventually cracks. It just happens! But filling cracks in concrete can be a tedious process, and it's not generally at the top of most maintenance lists. But a new bacteria could fill concrete cracks with little work required.
This here is a four-ton camera with five-foot-tall shutter and filters. It's got a whopping 570-megapixel sensor, and it's designed to take pictures of dark energy. It is better than the camera in your cellphone.
You may not be able to get the best calls on the thing, but with the iPhone 4 60X Microscope the hidden world of the microscopic will suddenly get a lot clearer.
It's the ultimate dream item for perverts everywhere: the invisibility cloak. Long the realm of sci-fi, it's been something thats understandably not yet around. But it may actually become a reality in the future thanks to a new "metamaterial."
The race is on to grow replacement human organs in the lab. When the tech is finally perfected, it will save thousands of lives of people who need organ transplants and are forced to wait on lists for organ donations. And now, researchers have begun growing miniature human livers.
It's one of those frustrating things about science: despite us living in such a tech-forward age, we still haven't discovered a cure for the common cold. But that might change in the very near future.
There are a lot of issues out there for science to tackle. You know, the cure for cancer, how to travel beyond our solar system, how to make cloned meat in a lab. But creating prehistoric dragonflies with wingspans of over two feet? Doing more harm than good! We reported on the plans to do this last week, but now you can see the horrifying image above to keep you from sleeping tonight.
This sounds promising: a new drug developed by researchers at the University of Edinburgh has been proven to reverse age-related memory loss in mice, and it may make the jump to human subjects.
