An international group of scientists has found that Jupiter is the oldest planet in our solar system.By looking at tungsten and molybdenum isotopes on iron meteorites, the team, made up of scientists from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Institut für Planetologie at the University of Münsterin Germany, found that...
Elon Musk is the man with a vision for a human mission to Mars, and on Tuesday he shared his plans at the International Astronautical Conference in Mexico, with a talk titled "Making Humans a Multiplanetary Species." On-stage, Musk said that there are two paths ahead of humanity: Either stay...
Engineers at the University of Cambridge have developed an ultralow power transistor that could function for months or even years without a battery. The transistors scavenge energy from their environment, thereby drastically reducing the amount of power used. A range of new electronic applications including implantable or wearable devices...
Scientists believe that there is a possibility of life existing on Europa, one of Jupiter’s fourGalilean moons. Recently, NASA has kickstarted plans to send a lander to the icy exoplanet in search of extraterrestrial life within its crust. A 264-page report published by the space administration details their plans...
UNSW researchers have made a discovery that could lead to a revolutionary drug that actually reverses ageing, improves DNA repair and could even help NASA get its astronauts to Mars. In a paper published in Science today, the team identifies a critical step in the molecular process that allows cells...
Researchers have demonstrated that digital data can be stored in DNA".1.DNA is a good storage medium because data can be written into molecules more densely than the basic elements of conventional storage technologies can pack it in.2.DNA is seen as a potential replacement for magnetic tape, which is the standard...

There's no mistaking the odor of burning rubber for the fresh smell after a summer rain, but now new research shows the human nose can distinguish among many more odors than once thought. People often say that humans can distinguish among only 10,000 different odors. But in fact, the nose...
NASA has picked up intense gamma ray signals coming from a set of ancient galaxies. The gamma rays are being blasted out by objects known as blazars, which surround some of the biggest and most powerful black holes we've ever encountered. The discovery could change our understanding of how black holes...
DARPA Is Planning to Hack the Human Brain to Let Us “Upload” Skills
MINDHACK FOR FASTER LEARNING In March 2016, DARPA — the U.S. military’s “mad science” branch — announced their Targeted Neuroplasticity Training (TNT) program. The TNT program aims to explore various safe neurostimulation methods for activating synaptic plasticity, which is the brain’s ability to alter the connecting points between neurons — a requirement for...
