The discovery was made by researchers from Germany and Sweden. Using a laser beam, they suspended tiny glycerol droplets in the air and witnessed an amazing phenomenon.\n
The project was created by Greek students from the National Technical University of Athens in collaboration with the ESA (European Space Agency).\n
CRISPR/Cas is one of the most promising technologies developed in the field of genetic engineering in the past few years. Scientists have managed to transform bacterial immune systems, allowing them to make precise modifications to any organism’s genome. Some of the potential applications of this technology are treatment of hereditary diseases, creation of next-level antibiotics, and genetic modification of animals and plants.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is famous for extensive research in the emerging field of robotics. This time, they taught a robot to play Jenga.
The telescope's discovery happened quite by accident. This case clearly shows how little we know about the world in which we live.
In 2014, a grandiose project was launched to determine the age limit of long-lived bacteria. It will take half a millennium.
Images of black holes have always been difficult to capture. But now this problem has been solved, and the first snapshot of a strange space object is waiting for us.\n
Mass media outlets haven’t paid much attention to the European Space Agency’s space programme. And it is in vain, because the ESA has been stepping up its efforts in this area.\n
There are questions that have for centuries occupied the minds of leading thinkers. The answer to one of them has finally been found.
On October 19, 2017, scientists discovered an interstellar object passing through the Solar System. The asteroid was named Oumuamua. The unusual cigar-shaped object had an uncommon trajectory and had likely...
Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency of the US Department of Defense (DARPA) has announced a competition to create a model of the nervous system of a gadfly (a winged insect). The prize fund is $1...
Scientists thoroughly analyzed the data obtained by Cassini spacecraft and came to the conclusion that there was a rainfall on Titan (Saturn’s moon). This natural phenomenon was recorded at the north pole...
