A team of scientist led by Gabriel Blaj, a staff scientist at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University, have generated what may be the loudest possible underwater sound. Using SLAC's Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) x-ray laser, the researchers took the equivalent of directing the electrical power of an entire city onto a single square meter and focused it on tiny
With the power to turn themselves into any other cell in the body, stem cells have a future as a key treatment for a range of diseases and injuries. The problem is, they lack some of the self-defense mechanisms that other cells have, leaving them open to attack from viruses and other threats. Now, researchers from the University of Edinburgh may have found a way to switch this mechanism ba
It might be hard to believed that a phenomenon as eye-catching as aurora could go undocumented, but in 2016 a new type of sky light was discovered, and given the strange name of STEVE. Exactly how the phenomenon worked was unknown, but a new study has now found some answers. .. Continue Reading Scientists identify source of strange glow in the sky Category: Physics Tags: Atmosphere
An international team of scientists under Yale paleontologist Javier Luque has discovered a 95 million year-old "platypus crab" that may throw into question how you define a crab. Found in rock formations in Colombia and the United States dating back to the mid-Cretaceous period 90 to 95 million years ago, the tiny swimming crab with the scientific name of Callichimaera perplexa shows larv
An incredible new study suggests that low-intensity ultrasound can be used to target very specific brain regions and alter an animal's decision-making processes. The technique, demonstrated in macaques monkeys, prompts actual behavioral changes using non-invasive ultrasound waves...

Although pieces of heart tissue have previously been bioprinted, scientists have now succeeded in creating the world's first 3D-printed vascularized heart to be made from a patient's own biological materials. It's an accomplishment that could pave the way for custom made-to-order replacement organs... Continue Reading Scientists create world's first patient-specific vascularized 3D-pri
Conventional wisdom and the ice-cold instincts of Mortal Kombat's Sub-Zero tell us that water freezes at 0° C (32° F), but what if you add some creative science to the mix? Researchers in Switzerland have figured out a way to reduce the temperature of water to a very cool -263° C (-441.4° F) without freezing it, opening up some interesting possibilities around how we study molecular struct
it measures 40 billion km across, three million times the size of the earth and scientists are calling it 'a monster'. The post scientists have captured the first ever image of a black hole appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Normally, animals reproduce by either laying eggs or giving birth to live young, but an Australian species of lizard can apparently do both in the same pregnancy. Scientists at the University of Sydney witnessed a three-toed skink lay three eggs before going on to later give birth to a live baby, an event that had never been observed in any vertebrate species before...

An international collective of researchers and ethicists is calling for an urgent global moratorium on human germline gene editing, suggesting serious discussions on technical, scientific, medical, societal, ethical and moral issues need to be had before scientists move forward with the controversial technique...
