HIV is a retrovirus, which means it is one of RNA viruses which insert a DNA copy of their genome into the host cell in order to replicate and thus quietly stag inside the host cells to infect them. Now... Read more »
What you’re about to see is the most diverse form of life forms in terms of survival instinct. Many bacteria are known to survive on a variety of energy sources. For example: some bacteria are photosynthetic, they can make their own food with the help of sunlight, just like plants and subseafloor bacteria can survive by over-activating DNA repair and antibiotic target genes. However, these newly discovered electric bacteria utilize energy in its purest form unlike any other bacteria.
As reported in NewScientist, these bacteria are everywhere and they can easily be found by sticking an electrode in the ground, pumping electrons down it and they will find their way through the electrode. They eat and breathe electrons. The video shows how they connect to form wires.
Scientists have shown that genetics is the key behind every aspect of human behavior and this includes happiness; some people are genetically more inclined to happiness than others. The new research has shown a very interesting link between genetics and... Read more »
To all intents and purposes, every device and machine we use emits heat and because of this a lot of energy is wasted. Imagine if we could convert this heat into some other form of energy, let's say electricity -... Read more »
We are told increasing the amount of antioxidants in our diets as pills or foods will lower the chance of cancer, but a new study sheds light on reality which is completely opposite to this previously held belief. In fact,... Read more »
Two Russian scientists, Leonid Plekhanov and Sergey Plekhanov, are attempting to recreate Tesla’s Wardenclyffe tower experiment which aims to transmit energy independent of transmission lines. The scientists are planning to erect the tower in August-September of... Read more »
Our learning abilities depend both on genetics and environment. Most abilities run in families but the complex system of genes affecting these abilities is largely unknown. However, scientists from University of Oxford and King's College London have shown a link... Read more »
