An anti-aging strategy that works in mice is about to be tested in humans
The Internet of Things (IoT) is forcing telecom providers, enterprises and cloud providers to change their business models not to just thrive, but survive. Although not new, advances in interest, infrastructure and information have put IoT in a position to fundamentally change how business is done.
If you think technologies from Star Trek seem far-fetched, think again. Many of the devices from the acclaimed television series are slowly becoming a reality. While we may not be teleporting people from starships to a planet’s surface anytime soon, we are getting closer to developing other tools essential for future space travel endeavours.
This past week, 37 participants from 19 Member States attended a technical meeting on the Status and Evaluation of Severe Accident Simulation Codes for Water Cooled Reactors (WCRs).
You’ve probably read about how the Universe is expanding, and has been expanding since the beginning of time. Over the course of 13.8 billion years or so, it’s stretched from the size of a billionth of a proton to the vast, unknowable expanse it is today. In fact, recent research suggests that it’s actually expanding faster than our current laws of physics can explain, and that’s kind of a problem.
Ultrathin films of a semiconductor that emits and detects light can be stacked on top of silicon wafers, researchers report in a study that could help bring optical communication onto silicon chips.
Lasers bounced off satellites replicate classic “delayed choice” experiment
Scientists are altering a powerful gene-editing technology in hopes of one day fighting diseases without making permanent changes to people’s DNA.
New platform holds potential for reversing the most common class of disease-associated DNA point mutations
The blueprint for everything.
Dark matter: The mystery substance physics still can’t identify that makes up the majority of our universe
Cosmologists are heading back to their chalkboards as the experiments designed to figure out what this unknown 84 percent of our universe actually is come up empty.
Though expensive now, prices could get cheaper for more common diseases.
A group of astronomers from the universities of Groningen, Naples and Bonn has developed a method that finds gravitational lenses in enormous piles of observations. The method is based on the same artificial intelligence algorithm that Google, Facebook and Tesla have been using in the last years. The researchers published their method and 56 new gravitational lens candidates in the November issue of Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society.
Physicists theorize that a new âtraversableâ kind of wormhole could resolve a baffling paradox and rescue information that falls into black holes.
Don’t throw out your CPUs just yet, but there may be a new way to run your neural networks.
A new MIT study finds that larger cities are more resilient to technological unemployment.
D-Wave system shows quantum computers can learn to detect particle signatures in mountains of data, but doesn’t outpace conventional methods — yet
Mitonuclear conflict â a struggle between the genes in a cellâs nucleus and its mitochondria â might sometimes split species in two.
Radical Science News is about radical breakthroughs and the newest technology and ideas that will change the world. “A house-size asteroid that just passed b…
Boron nitride nanotubes can withstand temperatures up to 900 degrees Celsius.
It’s a small world after all – and now science has explained why. A study conducted by the University of Leicester and KU Leuven, Belgium, examined how small worlds emerge spontaneously in all kinds of networks, including neuronal and social networks, giving rise to the well-known phenomenon of “six degrees of separation”.
And she isn’t the only one.
California probably will change the kinds of cars on the road in the United States. But it’s going to take a while. Find out why at HowStuffWorks.
How Chinese scientists used a supercomputer to solve the ancient puzzle called the Three Body Problem
Like the endlessly repeating patterns of chaos theory, the new solutions discovered by the Chinese researchers make for elaborate and weirdly beautiful images when they are plotted in two dimensions
The Food and Drug Administration has approved a promising new treatment called CAR-T for a particularly deadly form of cancer.
Woebot combines cognitive behavior therapy with advances in natural language to create a virtual counselor.
If brain imaging could be compared to Google Earth, neuroscientists would already have a pretty good “satellite view” of the brain, and a great “street view” of neuron details. But navigating how the brain computes is arguably where the action is, and neuroscience’s “navigational map view” has been a bit meager.
The next time you come across a knotted jumble of rope or wire or yarn, ponder this: The natural tendency for things to tangle may help explain the three-dimensional nature of the universe and how it formed.
Floating food could be the next culinary craze thanks to a new invention that levitates, transports and delivers food and drink directly onto your tongue.
Researchers have experimentally probed topological order and its breakdown. The work could open the way for new approaches to quantum computation.
