Humans Keep Growing an Extra Artery in Their Arms

Since the 18th century the prevalence of this extra artery is increasing. The prevalence was around 10 % in people born in the mid-1880s compared to 30 % in those born in the late 20th century,  - a significant increase in a fairly short period of time.

Search for alien life just got 1,000 times bigger

Astronomers searching for radio signals that could be signs of extraterrestrial life have just gained access to South Africa's MeerKAT telescope.

Perseverance Rover Discovers Possible Organic Compounds on Mars

Rock samples from the Jezero crater analyzed by NASA's Perseverance Mars rover show evidence of liquid water and signatures that could be organic compounds. 

Discovery Alert: Massive Planet is a 'Hulk' among Super-Earths

The planet, nearly 10 times Earth’s mass, orbits a small, red-orange star about 200 light-years away. This planet is extremely hot, with an estimated temperature of 1,050 Celsius.

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.
