Thought a general thread about new scientific discoveries could be cool and interesting.

At least I hope so..

A couple of things I found today:

DNA used to create nanobot computers in a cockroach

Izumo and Juno: proteins responsible for fertilization (might have an impact in future ways to fight infertility and develop new contraceptives)

DNA cubes unzip for isolated cell delivery.

If they can target a unique ID for the targeted disease, then it would only be released in affected cells allowing them to place a cell death trigger in the cube and only be released in cancerous or diseased cells but it's like a trojan horse for bad cells.

There could be water on Kepler

The planet has the right size, right distance from its star and could potentially host liquid water. They say this one is even better than the other 4 candidates for extraterrestrial life previously discovered.

Scientists looking for dark matter in South Dakota

The experiment is about detecting the passage of neutrinos through xenon in a radioactivity-free environment(only possible at such depths they say). The first test some months ago lasted 90 days and gave no results, the next one will last 300 days instead, and if they do find evidence of the existence of dark matter that's a pretty big deal.

Most of (Perhaps all?) Accepted models of physics only work if Dark Matter is accounted for, but there's still no direct evidence. We assume it exists by measuring it's effect, instead of the "Substance" itself.

Hubble’s cross-section of the cosmos

An image of a galaxy cluster taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope gives a remarkable cross-section of the Universe, showing objects at different distances and stages in cosmic history. They range from cosmic near neighbours to objects seen in the early years of the Universe. The 14-hour exposure shows objects around a billion times fainter than can be seen with the naked eye.

Hubble’s images might look flat, but this one shows a remarkable depth of field that lets us see more than halfway to the edge of the observable Universe. Most of the galaxies visible here are members of a huge cluster called CLASS B1608+656, which lies about five billion light-years away. But the field also contains other objects, both significantly closer and far more distant, including quasar QSO-160913+653228 which is so distant its light has taken nine billion years to reach us, two thirds of the time that has elapsed since the Big Bang.

No more plaster cast with a 3d printer!

It looks pretty nice, and surely more comfortable :o no more signing the cast though!

A nice improvement for hygiene too. I've only had one cast but it was pretty disgusting afterward.

that is pretty damn cool, I told an artsy person I know to go get trained on designing stuff for 3d printing, as I really only see the field expanding, especially after that staples deal in a few test stores.

Glacial microbes gobble methane

and this one I found very interesting:

Life formed spontaeously in the ocean

At Cambridge they were able to recreate the conditions of the early Earth ocean and found metabolic reactions started happening on their own.

But how on Earth (Which is only 6,000 years old btw!) did they isolate the variable of God's Giggles? Fact: You can't!

That's up to how you personally reconcile the two. Religion and Science attempt to answer the same questions, so not expecting the two to come into contact is very, very, very naive.

Contribution. My dad recently suffered a stroke with accompanying nerve damage, I'm sure he'll be in the ground long before this is practical, if it even gets that far. Still pretty cool, though isn't it a little redundant with certain Stem Cell applications?

Vrs.

Dark Matter research and space travel.

One of these things is functionally useless.

That's fine, but this isn't a thread to bash religion because it and science can be related philosophically. This is a thread where people come to hear about and discuss cool scientific discoveries. Flame bait is flame bait regardless of whether or not you can justify it in the topic.

Goddamn, people are touchy and humorless today. Monday was yesterday, nobody's ever had a case of the "Tuesdays".

And because I've always said I'd kill myself if I ever went blind: Stem Cells potentially reverse blindness.

Tuesday is Monday with a hangover. It's no longer funny to joke about that kind of misery.

If we're going to keep politics out of this, could we avoid linking to a site that conflates an automatic medication delivery system with Big Brother RFID chipping?

Sorry I simply read the article on an italian website and went to look for someone talking about it in english so to post it here, I have absolutely no political interest in anything I share.
