A new Yale University-led study has solved a long-standing mystery of how acute stress seems to amplify inflammatory disease despite the fact many stress hormones actually suppress the immune system. The research reveals a particular immune cell is released by fat cells when an organism faces systemic stress.Continue ReadingCategory: ScienceTags: The Immune System, Inflammatory, Yale, Stress, Evo
The LIGO-Virgo collaboration has reported a very strange gravitational wave signal. Most of these come from mergers between two black holes or two neutron stars, but this signal appears to have come from a black hole swallowing some unknown object, with a mass that sits in a range thought to be empty.Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceTags: Astronomy, Astrophysics, Black hole, Neutron Genera
Headlines all over the internet lately have been screaming about how scientists in Antarctica have discovered evidence of a parallel universe where time runs backwards. While we seriously wish that was true, a new study has put forward a more realistic explanation.Continue ReadingCategory: Physics, ScienceTags: Particle physics, Neutrino, Antarctic, Virginia Tech, Cosmic
Only about five percent of the content of the universe is made up of regular (or baryonic) matter – and we still don’t know where most of that is. Now, an international team of astronomers has developed a creative new method to detect this missing matter, using the equally-mysterious fast radio bursts (FRBs).Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceTags: Fast Radio Bursts, Matter, CSIRO, Curtin Un
Researchers at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard have solved a molecular mystery that might lead to new treatments for cancer. The team has uncovered just how a strange molecule works to kill cancer by inducing a little-known type of cell death, and identified other molecules that may work even better.Continue ReadingCategory: Medical, ScienceTags: Cancer, Broad Institute, Molecules, Protein
A team of US scientists has just solved a long-standing biological mystery – how exactly do millipedes mate? Using a variety of novel imaging methods, including microscopic ultraviolet photography and micro-CT scanning, the research finally figured out how these tiny creatures get it on.Continue ReadingCategory: Biology, ScienceTags: Insect, Reproduction, Sex, General Imaging
Experimental photographer and “weird gear” collector Mathieu Stern made this 5.5-minute video about how he recently found a roll of mystery film inside a 60-year-old medium format camera.In the summer of 2019, Stern was at a huge flea market in France when he purchased a Lubitel-2, a twin-lens reflex manufactured by LOMO in Russia between 1955 and 1977. Considered a toy camera due to
A team of Harvard scientists has finally solved the mystery of how acute stress causes hair to turn gray. The researchers discovered when stress triggers the "fight or flight" response, it depletes pigment-producing stem cells in hair follicles.
