New CRISPR cancer treatment tested in humans for first time

Now scientists have used CRISPR to remove and add genes to these cells to help them recognize a patient’s specific tumor cells. 

Discovery finds the Earth's core is constantly changing the length our day

The length of our day changes slightly over a six-year period. This recent discovery has perplexed scientists for about a decade and now we know the reason for it - it is the Earth core.

Tuvalu Looks To Upload Nation Into The Metaverse

The Pacific Island nation plans to create a digital clone of itself, recreating islands and monuments and conserving its history and culture as rising sea levels threaten to submerge the country.

Carbon dioxide is shrinking uppermost atmosphere

Starting around 60 km up, in the outermost layers of atmosphere carbon dioxide actually cools the atmosphere, causing it to shrink and contract. A cooling and shrinking MLT will lead to an increase in the longevity of space debris at higher altitudes

Physicists Claim Wormholes May Have Been Detected

A team of scientists from the University in Bulgaria say they have developed a novel new method that could help scientists differentiate between black holes and hypothetical wormholes.

NASA Just Successfully Launched Its Artemis 1 Moon Rocket

After two failed attempts, NASA has successfully launched its Moon-bound megarocket the Space Launch System, which will travel beyond the far side of the Moon and back - further than any other habitable spacecraft so far.

Transfusions of Lab-Grown Blood Cells

UK scientists have begun the first clinical trial of lab-grown red blood cells, with the hope that they survive longer in volunteers than donated blood cells.

Scientists Engineer Super Bacteria That Are Alien to All Life on Earth

The engineered bacteria are now resistant to even the most aggressive viruses, with little chance of leaking their synthetic code into the wild.

Jellyfish are taking over the oceans due to climate change

Jellyfish populations are currently on the rise, and this growth can negatively impact humans and other living organisms unless change is implemented.

Exciting technology converts CO2 into ethylene

A company seeks to replace the non-renewable and pollutive process of creating ethylene with its new technology that uses carbon dioxide instead.

Mimicking life: A breakthrough in non-living materials

Dutch researchers discovered a new process that uses fuel to control non-living materials, similar to what living cells do. The discovery is a step towards soft robotics; soft machines that can sense what is happening in their environment.

World's largest autism study reveals 134 autism-linked genes

The study used whole genome sequencing to examine the entire genomes of over 7,000 individuals with autism. The team found 134 genes linked with ASD and discovered a range of genetic changes.

Brainwave-Reading Implant Helps Paralyzed Man Who Can't Speak

A paralyzed man who cannot speak or type was able to spell out over 1,000 words using a neuroprosthetic device that translates his brain waves into full sentences, US researchers said Tuesday.

Traces of ancient ocean discovered on Mars

A recently released set of topography maps provides new evidence for an ancient northern ocean on Mars. The maps offer the strongest case yet that the planet once experienced sea-level rise consistent with an extended warm and wet climate.

Earth's vital signs signal a "code red" climate emergency

According to the new paper, 16 of 35 planetary vital signs have now reached record extremes. That includes rises in the frequency of dangerous heat events, global tree cover loss from fires and the prevalence of the mosquito-borne dengue virus.
