Finnish researchers have created a batch of single-cell protein that is nutritious enough to serve for dinner using a system powered by renewable energy. The entire process requires only electricity, water, carbon dioxide, and microbes.The synthetic food was created as part of the Food From Electricity project, which is a collaboration between...
Scientists have created an artificial form of photosynthesis that could reduce levels of carbon dioxide in the air, and provide solar fuel at the same time – two potential benefits to help stabilise our changing climate. The chemical reaction is triggered by blue light mimicking the blue wavelength of sunlight, and...
Scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine have found that stem cells in the brain's hypothalamus govern how fast aging occurs in the body. The finding, made in mice, could lead to new strategies for warding off age-related diseases and extending lifespan. The paper was published online in Nature.The hypothalamus was known...
whale remix their old songs
Humpback whales are famous for their complex and mysterious songs, and scientists tuning into their sounds off the coast of Australia have discovered the interesting way in which they acquire these singing skills. The research reveals that humpback whales learn songs in segments, just like the verses of a...
angel particle
Every fundamental particle in the universe has an antiparticle, which has the same mass but the opposite charge. If a particle should ever meet its antiparticle, the two would annihilate each other in a flash of energy. But it's long been theorized that there's an exception to the rule,...
teleport
Researchers in China have teleported a photon from the ground to a satellite orbiting more than 500 kilometers above. Last year, a Long March 2D rocket took off from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre in the Gobi Desert carrying a satellite called Micius, named after an ancient Chinese philosopher who...
Egyptologists, writers, scholars, and others, have argued the race of the ancient Egyptians since at least the 1970’s. Some today believe they were Sub-Saharan Africans. We can see this interpretation portrayed in Michael Jackson’s 1991 music video for “Remember the Time,” from his Dangerousalbum. The video, a 10 minute mini-film,...
In what must count as one of the most chilling discoveries in recent history, archaeologists have unearthed a tower of more than 650 skulls under Mexico City – a find which means we might have to rethink what we thought we knew about the Aztecs. In particular, some new questions have...
Ken Wilbur once wrote in The Spectrum of Consciousness that for every knot in the mind, there is a corresponding knot in the body. When we get a massage, give someone a hug, or offer a loving touch to our romantic partners, a new study has now proven that this physical exchange can...
Photosynthesis is an essential natural process that keeps not just plants, but just about everything else on Earth alive — including us. When plants convert carbon dioxide and water into carbohydrates, they feed themselves and emit oxygen for us to breathe. But what if we took a page out of nature’s...
