NASA's Webb takes its first-ever direct image of distant world

The exoplanet is a gas giant, meaning it has no rocky surface and could not be habitable. The image shows how Webb's powerful infrared gaze can easily capture worlds beyond our solar system.

Chinese astronauts grow rice and cress in space

The Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) has recently reported successfully growing rice and vegetables on the Tiangong space station.

World's first coronavirus vaccine you can inhale approved in China

China became the first country to approve a needle-free, inhaled version of a Covid-19 vaccine. The vaccine is similar to those developed by AstraZeneca Plc and Johnson & Johnson.

Pakistan Flood Crisis Caused by Climate Change

Relentless rains in Pakistan over two months have caused the country's worst flooding in more than a decade. Floodwaters have washed away roads, buildings, and crops. A third of the country is now underwater.

Quantum Physicists Set New Record For Entangling Photons Together

A new method for entwining the fates of fragments of light has overcome some serious obstacles on the road to photon-based quantum computing.

NASA's Webb Detects Carbon Dioxide in Exoplanet Atmosphere

This observation of a gas giant planet orbiting a Sun-like star 700 light-years away provides important insights into the composition and formation of the planet.

'Super-Earth' That Could Be an Ocean-Covered Water World

It's called TOI-1452b, and measurements of its size and mass suggest a density profile consistent with a global liquid ocean. An exoplanet is just 100 light-years from Earth

A Black Hole Jet 50 Times Larger Than Its Galaxy Discovered

Australian astronomers have discovered one of the biggest black hole jets in the sky. Spanning more than a million light years from end to end, the jet shoots away from a black hole with enormous energy, and at almost the speed of light.

Grains of dust from asteroid Ryugu older than our solar system

An international team of researchers studying dust samples retrieved by the Hayabusa-2 space probe, has found that some of its dust grains are older than the solar system. 

World Record For The Most Powerful Stable Magnetic Field

At the Chinese Academy of Sciences' Steady High Magnetic Field Facility, a magnet years in development achieved a steady magnetic field of 45.22 tesla – tens of thousands of times more powerful than an souvenir fridge magnet.

A Common Chemical Has Been Linked to Liver Cancer in Humans

A common 'forever chemical' known as PFOS (perfluorooctanesulfonic acid) has been linked to liver cancer in humans in a worrying new study.

A Remote Surgical Robot is Going to the International Space Station

The Miniaturized In-vivo Robotic Assistant (MIRA) is getting ready to fly to the ISS and evaluate if robotic-assisted surgery (RAS) will work in space.

Two Stars Colliding Like We've Never Seen Before

The aftermath of an epic collision involving at least one neutron star has been captured for the first time in the millimeter range of radio frequency wavelengths.

Scientists create the world's first 'synthetic' embryos

A team of stem cell researchers in Israel was able to create the world’s first synthetic embryos from mice stem cells, a scientific feat that could hold the key to ending animal testing in medical research and offer new solutions to healing people.

Physicists Finally Measure A Theorized Molecule Made From Light And Matter

Physicists have just caught light acting the part of 'glue' between atoms, in a kind of loosely bonded molecule.
