Australian researchers have identified a new gene that plays a fundamental role in regulating the production of pro-inflammatory proteins. It's hoped the discovery of this previously unknown genetic mechanism will offer scientists exciting new pathways to treat a variety of diseases, from cancer to diabetes...

An international team of astronomers has discovered an asteroid orbiting the Sun at roughly the same distance as Jupiter, that appears to have originated from another solar system. The imaginatively named asteroid 2015 BZ509 could have immigrated to our little pocket of the universe from a neighboring stellar body billions of years ago, at a time when our Sun was still embedded in a coloss
Astronomers have discovered two enormous clusters of ancient galaxies that existed just 1.5 billion years after the creation of the universe in the Big Bang. According to current theoretical computer models of the early universe, clusters this size should not have come into existence until the cosmos was around three billion years old, leaving astronomers puzzled as to how the newly discov
Ants have an incredible capacity to work together for the good of the collective, but a freshly discovered species shows just how far they are willing to go. Colobopsis explodens has been observed in the rainforests of southeast Asia making the ultimate sacrifice, blowing their bodies apart in an attempt to stop predators in their tracks...

Researchers at Trinity College Dublin have uncovered a new metabolic process involved in the immune system's inflammatory processes. The discovery suggests manipulating this mechanism could essentially "switch off" inflammation, which the researchers hope could lead to the development of entirely new anti-inflammatory drugs to treat a host of auto-immune disorders...Continue Reading Newly dis
The Gaming Historian published a video today about the story of Tetris, which covers the history of Alexey Pajitnov and contextualizes the political and social climate surrounding the game's development.  ...
Numbers might not sound like they need discovering, but a crowd-sourced project has now identified the largest prime number known. The number was discovered by the Great Internet Mersenne Prime Search (GIMPS), an online project of citizen scientists who spot and verify prime numbers using specialty software. It's been dubbed M77232917 – and if you're wondering why it needs a codename, well, w
While it might seem like we've got the animal kingdom pretty well cataloged, new species are constantly turning up in the deep oceans, thick jungles, or even dusty museum store rooms. Here's our favorite new additions to the Tree of Life in 2017, as well as a couple of "Lazarus" creatures that were believed extinct but rediscovered this year...Continue Reading Creatures great and small: New s
Physicists from the University of Illinois have discovered a new form of matter called excitonium. This condensate, made up of excitons, was first theorized almost 50 years ago, and although evidence of this form of matter has been observed in that time it was difficult to be sure of what was happening. Now, the Illinois researchers have found a "smoking gun" that they claim is the first defi
A massive new international study has more than tripled the number of genetic variants associated with a longer lifespan. The study, which looked at genetic correlations among people with long-living parents, found distinct new genetic characteristics connected to lifespan, while also unexpectedly revealing potential gender-specific genetic pathways to a longer life...Continue Reading 17 new
