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.
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.
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.
Now scientists have used CRISPR to remove and add genes to these cells to help them recognize a patient’s specific tumor cells.
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.
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
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.
The engineered bacteria are now resistant to even the most aggressive viruses, with little chance of leaking their synthetic code into the wild.
Jellyfish populations are currently on the rise, and this growth can negatively impact humans and other living organisms unless change is implemented.
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.
