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. Today, many food items come with labels – “Sell By”, “Best By”, or “Use By” date - stamped on the packaging. Those are expiration dates. But what do they actually mean?
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.
Blockages in the global air currents called the jet streams could explain why we experience strange and sometimes deadly weather pattern. The jet stream has a capacity, and when it’s exceeded it, blockages form that are similar to traffic jams can occur.
Famed theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking’s last theory about our universe which he worked on with Professor Thomas Hertog from KU Leuven, is based on string theory and it suggests that the universe is finite and much simpler, as compared to many other current theories on the big bang.
The sea slug, Elysia chlorotica, is able to become plant like and survive just on photosynthesis. The slug steals millions of green-colored plastids, which are like tiny solar panels, from the non-toxic brown alga, store them in their gut lining - to become photosynthetic, or solar-powered.
