The Long Now Foundation has created a list of extinct species that it believes we should consider resurrecting via DNA and other modern technologies. Some argue that this would amount to “playing God,” but the reintroduction of some of these species could revitalize natural habitats and increase flora and fauna.
Online retailer trials arm that can select fruit and vegetables without damaging them – but says it will still need humans
Google employees from eight campuses today staged a work stoppage and walked outÂ in protest of President Trumpâs immigration ban. Google, and tech companies in general, stand toÂ be among the most affected should Trumpâs seven country immigration ban â and the hazy status on existing visa holders â be allowed to continue. Today, the company made …
Three new plants in California show how lithium-ion storage is ready to power the grid.
Graphene has been touted as the wonder material of the future and can now be cheaply and easily mass produced using just a few ingredients. The material is continually involved in new testing to discover all of its many uses, it certainly is the future of electronics.
It’s official, time crystals are real.
Forget chemicals, catalysts and expensive machinery-a Kansas State University team of physicists has discovered a way to mass-produce graphene with three ingredients: hydrocarbon gas, oxygen and a spark plug.
The universe is expanding faster than we thought, causing problems for cosmologists. It could even mean Einsteinâs theory of relativity needs revising
In 2016 alone, 58,320 people in the U.S. died from leukemia. This new development could increase a patients’ chance of survival Current treatment methods can increase a patient’s risk of secondary cancer after remission. This Engineered T-Cell approach has not shown to be carcinogenic
Scientists from University of California – San Diego were able to confirm the code responsible for initiating transcription and regulation of more than half of human genes. Knowing how or why genes are turned on and off during development, as well as understanding how they respond to environmental changes, will help us find ways to prevent diseases.
This roundup showcases amazing, cheap tech fixes and gadgets, many that are DIY, that have the potential to transform life in developing countries.
This headset lets you control Star Wars toys with your mind.
Dr. Eric Kmiec, Ph.D., is the director of the Gene Editing Institute of the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center & Research Institute at Christiana Care Health System. He and his
The colonization of Saturn’s moons could open us up to a wealth of harvestable raw materials that could be used in future fusion reactors. While this is a literal moonshot, beginning to think about how it is possible may eventually lead to successful missions.
Researchers have discovered that chemically active droplets grow to a set size and then divide on their own accord in a way that’s very similar to living cell division. The discovery could help us understand how the very first living cells initially evolved from protocells billions of years ago, though much more research is still ahead of us.
Nine years ago, I was sitting in a college math physics course and my professor spelt out an idea that kind of blew my mind. I think…
A Chinese company recently laid claim to being the first to successfully implant 3D, synthetically printed blood vessels into monkeys. Such breakthrough is
Let’s check out where we are when it comes to interstellar space travel.
The FDA approval of a cloud based machine learning application to be used in a clinical setting to help physicians understand how a heart is functioning signals a major breakthrough. Cutting examination time from up to an hour to just 15 seconds paves the way for more AI algorithms in healthcare.
Just as aircraft flying at supersonic speeds create cone-shaped sonic booms, pulses of light can leave behind cone-shaped wakes of light. Now, a superfast camera has captured the first-ever video of these events.
Virtual Reality is not a new technology, itâs been around in various forms for decades, but enthusiasts believe itâs now on the cusp of a golden age. Driven …
One of the most terrifyingly-plausible doomsday scenarios is the rise of superbugs, bacteria that are evolving a resistance to our most powerful antibiotics. Now researchers have created a new molecule that can make previously antibiotic-resistant bacteria vulnerable to existing drugs again.
There’s work to be done.
Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk told CNBC on Friday that economies would most likely need a form of ‘universal basic income’ as more and more industries b…
In the quantum vacuum, no one can hear you scream.
The graphene material is 5% the density and 10x the strength of steel.
A Silicon Valley scientist and entrepreneur who invented a drug to explode double chins is now working on a cure for aging
Nathaniel David’s father began suffering from the symptoms of early-onset osteoarthritis in his back during his teenage years. The 77-year-old is now stooped over, effectively crippled, and unable to move. David started feeling muscle tightness in his back two years ago, at age 47. An MRI confirmed what he knew was his likely genetic fate: He…
Many are celebrating the work of the Nobel Prize winner this month, but others can’t forget this bizarre story that’s also part of his legacy.
Developed by Wattway and deployed on the streets of Tourouvre-au-Perche, a 1,000-meter-long solar-paneled roadway in France is the first stretch of a 1,000-kilometer endeavor. The technology along …
Scientists have long known that DNA segments called telomeres play a crucial part in aging, but new research has discovered a protein that acts as a kind of cellular timekeeper, regulating the length of telomeres to maintain healthy cell division and prevent the development of cancer.
