2017 was a year of discovery: NASA started using reusable rockets, patients started treating cancer using only their own cells, and scientists discovered the Earth’s lost eighth continent.
An international team of 32 scientists found a new continent in the South Pacific. Scientists created the ‘closest thing anyone has ever made’ to a new life form. Scientists say they’ve just invented two new letters, an unnatural pair of X-Y bases. Scientists peered into the Great Pyramid of Giza in a new way, and found a secret chamber there.
The spacecraft ultimately headed down into the planet’s clouds and burned up – a move scientists had planned to avoid the chance that the probe would run out of fuel and crash into one of Saturn’s potentially habitable moons.
Scientists got closer to implanting pig parts in humans.
