the astronomical event will see the usually silvery moon turn blood red and ochre. The post peak times: how to watch and photograph tonight’s longest ‘blood moon’ eclipse of the century appeared first on designboom | architecture & design magazine.
Melanoma, the most common type of skin cancer, is traditionally detected via observing changes in irregular moles, and then conducting a skin biopsy for full confirmation. A team from Edith Cowan University in Australia has now developed a blood test that can detect melanoma in its early stages reducing the need for expensive, and frequently unnecessary biopsies...

Cancer can be a tricky foe, so the best way to fight it might not be with a direct attack, but to cut off its supply lines. One such method, known as gas embolotherapy, involves creating tiny bubbles in the tumor blood vessels, which block the blood supply and starve the cancer out. Now, researchers from China and France have found that the technique could also deal a second blow as a drug
A new blood test that can rapidly diagnose heart attacks has undergone further testing verifying it can nearly immediately identify whether a patient has had a heart attack or not. The research hopes to lead to a portable hand-held testing device that can not only speed up diagnoses in emergency rooms but also be available in ambulances for on the spot analysis...

Bone marrow tissue functions like a conveyor belt for our bloodstream, pumping out billions of blood cells each day to keep our bodies in healthy, working order. Scientists have now made a promising advance in the effort to recreate this effect with an artificial version, a tool that could be weaponized in the fight against leukemia and other diseases of the blood. ..

It's never a good thing when donated human blood – or even the blood in our bodies – is infected with bacteria. Scientists at the University of California San Diego, however, are developing a means of removing such blood-borne microbes using tiny ultrasound-powered robots...
