A team of scientists from Johns Hopkins University have set a rather unique record – they've used a fixed-wing drone to fly medical samples farther than any drone has ever done before. The Latitude Engineering HQ-40 aircraft transported human blood samples across 161 miles (259 km) of Arizona desert...Continue Reading Scientists set record – for flying blood in a droneCategory: DronesTags:
One of the biggest biological mysteries is how life originally sparked out of non-living molecules. The answer likely lies in the primordial soup, a mineral-rich mixture that was lapping against the shorelines on early Earth, but there's still a big question mark hovering over just how these molecules managed to link up to form life-giving proteins. To find out, researchers at Georgia Tech ha
There is still so much to learn out about the TRAPPIST-1 system, the set of planets orbiting a (relatively) nearby ultracool dwarf star that so excited the exoplanet community earlier this year. One question on everybody's lips concerns the chances of liquid water, something scientists are now able to shed more light on thanks to fresh observations from the Hubble Space Telescope...Continue R
Researchers at MIT have uncovered a new potential treatment for reversing memory loss of Alzheimer's sufferers. The technique targets an enzyme known as HDAC2, which blocks genes vital to memory formation in Alzheimer's patients, and so far it has shown promise in tests in mice...Continue Reading Scientists unclog genetic brain blockade in mice with Alzheimer'sCategory: MedicalTags: A
Every fundamental particle in the universe has an antiparticle, which has the same mass but the opposite charge. If a particle should ever meet its antiparticle, the two would annihilate each other in a flash of energy. But it's long been theorized that there's an exception to the rule, with certain particles that are actually their own antiparticles. Now, scientists from Stanford and the Uni
A group of scientists from California have developed a series of organic electronic components that will harmlessly dissolve into their environment after use. Read more

Peter Parker take note, architects and chemists at the University of Cambridge have come up with an artificial spider silk that is strong, super-stretchy, non-toxic, and sustainable, yet is made from a material that is 98 percent water. The new artificial fiber is spun from hydrogel at room temperature and is less expensive to produce that current alternatives, yet possesses many of the prope
Growing human skin in the laboratory has advanced to the point where it's used to create skin grafts for burn victims, but it hasn't been possible to do the same with non-mammals – until now. Scientists led by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) have successfully reconstructed the skin of a green sea turtle as part of a study to learn more about a virus infection that threatens the end
Dutch water company SPA Nederland believes in the purity of their product. To prove how clean and clear their water is, they employed scientists to use a drop of SPA Nederland water as a camera lens. It sounds crazy, right? Ultimately, anything can act as a functional lens so long as it can refract light to converge at a single point. The scientists in the video below placed an aperture diaphragm
