NASA Science Balloon Crashes – video

A huge NASA balloon loaded with a telescope painstakingly built to scan the sky at wavelengths invisible to the human eye crashed in the Australian outback Thursday, destroying the astronomy experiment and just missing nearby onlookers, according to Australian media reports. The balloon was carrying the Nuclear Compton Telescope (NCT), a gamma-ray telescope built by astronomer Steven Boggs and his ... Read More »

Life on Mars

Life on Mars Is there life on mars? A slushy cocktail of water-ice and organic materials has been directly detected on the surface of an asteroid for the first time. The finding strengthens the theory that asteroids delivered the ingredients for Earth’s oceans and life, and could make astronomers rethink conventional models for how the Solar System evolved. A special ... Read More »

Hodgkin’s lymphoma

Hodgkin’s lymphoma, previously known as Hodgkin’s disease, is a type of lymphoma, which is a type of cancer originating from white blood cells called lymphocytes. It was named after Thomas Hodgkin, who first described abnormalities in the lymph system in 1832. Hodgkin’s lymphoma is characterized by the orderly spread of disease from one lymph node group to another and by ... Read More »

Animal Testings

Animals are being used for experiments in order to improve cures for people. These experiments reached to top level in 20th century. At the same time, number of people against animal experiments increased also in 20th century. Alternative methods to animal testing emerged in 1970s, too. Today, there are ongoing national and international research and policy efforts to develop alternatives ... Read More »

We invited them to identify the key questions their disciplines face, the major roadblocks and the pressing next steps. It is really interesting, you may want to read to get insight about future studies. ... Read More »

Supersize quantum mechanics

It is so interesting that a team of scientists has succeeded in putting an object large enough to be visible to the naked eye into a mixed quantum state of moving and not moving. Largest ever object put into quantum state. Hands in motion (hands have motion blur) doing a drum roll on an old brass snare drum. A quantum ... Read More »

Natural products

Natural products have been a major source of drugs for centuries. With more than 25% of the pharmaceuticals in use today from natural products. This can be attributed to several factors, including unmet therapeutic needs that drive drug discovery, the remarkable diversity of both chemical structures and biological activities of naturally occuring secondary metabolities and etc. Prior to the early-mid ...
