Scientists develop artificial kidney that may end dialysis

Scientists at the University of California San Francisco have developed a bioreactor device that uses human kidney cells cultured in the laboratory and mimics some of the key functions of a kidney.

Earth's Core Appears to Be Wrapped in an Ancient, Unexpected Structure

The most high-resolution map yet reveals something we previously never knew about: an ancient ocean floor that may wrap around the core. This thin but dense layer exists around 2,900 kilometers below the surface.

Most distant galactic magnetic field yet

Astronomers detected the most distant galactic magnetic field so far. The galaxy is called 9io9. Its light has to travel travel more than 11 billion years to reach us, from a time when the universe was a young 2.5 billion years old.

Astronomers discover first ‘bubble of galaxies’

The bubble is 10,000 times wider than the Milky Way and located 820 million light-years from our own galaxy. The astronomers have called their bubble Ho’oleilana – meaning “sent murmurs of awakening”.

Never Before Seen Structures In A Supernova

The James Webb Space Telescope has captured a new image of Supernova 1987A, one of the most famous exploding stars.

Invasive species threaten food supply and public health worldwide

Non-native species—displaced either by global trade and travel or by climate change—pose "a severe global threat" to local biodiversity, food security as well as public health, a new report has found.

New fossil scull found in Turkey challenges human evolution

The new discovery lends weight to the theory that the hominins first evolved in Europe before migrating to Africa 7–9 million years ago.

Super Hefty Exoplanet Is Denser Than Steel, Scientists Say

A newly discovered exoplanet has characteristics so peculiar that astronomers think it must have experienced a giant collision some time in its past.

Ancient Beads Found Originated from Interstellar Source

The meteor from which these beads originated, known as IM1, disintegrated over the Pacific in 2014. Some of these spherules do not possess the chemical composition expected from objects in our Solar System. 

Swift AI drone beats humans in drone race for the first time

Researchers from the University of Zurich and Intel have announced the creation of a unique autonomous unmanned system called Swift. It is powered by artificial intelligence and is capable of outperforming humans in FPV drone race.

Rare 'Hypernuclei' Have Been Detected at The Large Hadron Collider

Between 2016 and 2018, physicists recorded more than 100 rare, unstable hypernuclei – atomic cores that contain an unusual flavor of quark in one of their nuclear particles.

Aggressive Cancer Cells Transformed Into Healthy Cells in Breakthrough

Scientists have successfully induced rhabdomyosarcoma cells to transform into normal, healthy muscle cells. It's a breakthrough that could lead to similar breakthroughs for other types of human cancers.

Brain Implant Gives a Voice to People Who Couldn't Speak

In two separate cases, scientists have successfully used brain implants and machine learning to give patients back their voice after theirs was taken.

Mysterious Dark Vortex on Neptune Seen From Earth For First Time

Now, for the first time, we have observed a Neptune Storm with Earth-based instruments in unprecedented resolution.

Scientists solve the genetic puzzle of sex-related Y chromosome

Scientists have taken an important step forward in understanding the human genome - our genetic blueprint - by fully deciphering the enigmatic Y chromosome present in males, an achievement that could help guide research on infertility in men.
