A robust new study led by scientists from Yale School of Medicine has comprehensively demonstrated how SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19, can infect the brain and central nervous system (CNS). The study validates a growing body of observational research attributing neurological issues to COVID-19.Continue ReadingCategory: Health & Wellbeing, LifestyleTags: Coronavirus (CO
How many galaxies are there in the observable universe? Not as many as we thought, according to a new study. NASA’s New Horizons probe has measured the blackness of the sky and found that there’s probably “only” a few hundred billion galaxies glowing too faintly for us to detect, much fewer than previous estimates.Continue ReadingCategory: Space, ScienceTags: New Horizons, Stars, Galaxy, Light, A
By definition metals and insulators are very different – but now Princeton physicists have accidentally discovered an unexpected quantum behavior in an insulator that was thought to be unique to metals. The find suggests a brand new type of quantum particle, which the team calls a neutral fermion.Continue ReadingCategory: Physics, ScienceTags: Physics, Quantum Physics, Quantum, Particle physics,
