How can the new solar probe stand up to the heat?
The stem cells in the brain’s hypothalamus, which are also responsible for forming new brain neurons, have been found to control aging throughout the body. The cells decline as we age, which accelerates aging. But, replenishing them or the molecules they produce can slow and even reverse various aspect of aging throughout the body.
Scientists have performed the first-ever, 3D color X-ray on a human body using the MARS spectral x-ray scanner - a revolutionary colour medical scanner based on technology developed at CERN.
A study finds that every individual has a unique brain anatomy. The uniqueness is attributed to a combination of genetic factors, individual experiences and life circumstances.
Do you know that vomit-inducing smell that comes from the expired food items? Well, you do, and you only have to smell it once to make sure it never happens again.

The European Space Agency has released the final batch of images taken by Rosetta’s high resolution OSIRIS camera. In the mission’s final hour at Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, Rosetta scanned across an ancient pit as it moved closer to the surface, and sent back images showing what would become its final resting place.
Following the most precise test of gravity outside the Milky Way, an international team of astronomers has confirmed the validity of Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity in another galaxy.
MIT researchers have developed an ingestible sensor that can diagnose bleeding in the stomach or other gastrointestinal issues. The 1.5 inch long cylindrical device contains millions of genetically engineered bacteria, and is powered by 2.7-volt battery.
