Superionic ice solve the puzzle of icy planet formation
A new experiment confirms the existence of “superionic ice,” a bizarre form of water that might comprise the bulk of giant icy planets throughout the universe#science #universe #universalworld #sciencefact
Fungus mutate itself to avoids its own infection
Whilst most organisms try to stop their DNA frommutating, scientists from the UK and China have discovered that a common fungusfound on bread actively mutates its own DNA as a way of fighting virus-like infections.
"Tiny bird can see colour which human can't"
Princeton University evolutionary biologist, and colleagues carried out a series of field experiments with wild broad-tailed hummingbirds near the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory in Colorado. The remarkable results revealed the birds could discern spectral-colored feeders from feeders in nonspectral colors.
Nanotechnology convert infrared red into visible light
In a study from the University of Massachusetts Medical School, researchers injected nanoparticles that converted infrared light into visible light into the eyes of mice. Those mice were then placed in a maze along with mice who didn't receive the injections, and were able to find their way out of the maze. The nanoparticles bound to the photoreceptors of the mice's eyes and provided night vision for up to 10 weeks without any ill effects #science #researchstudy
"Red spot in Jupiter"
The Great Red Spot is a giant, spinning storm in Jupiter's atmosphere. It is like a hurricane on Earth, but it is much larger. Jupiter's Great Red Spot is more than twice the size of Earth! Winds inside this storm reach speeds of about 270 miles per hour. The bands in Jupitor are created by differences in the thickness and height of the ammonia ice clouds. The colorful bands, which flow in opposite directions at various latitudes, result from different atmospheric pressures. Lighter bands…
"Synthetic RBC with new features "
Follow @scientific eyesight for more updates .The researchers made the synthetic cells by first coating donated human RBCs with a thin layer of silica. They layered positively and negatively charged polymers over the silica-RBCs, and then etched away the silica, producing flexible replicas. Finally, the team coated the surface of the replicas with natural RBC membranes.
"Microspordia MB" blocks malarial transmission.
Scientists have discovered a microbe, a fungus they have named Microsporidia MB, in Anopheles arabiensis mosquitoes around the shores of Lake Victoria in Kenya. The fungus is capable of blocking malaria transmission from mosquitoes to people.
"Electricity can generate using shadow "
Tan and his team created the device, called a shadow-effect energy generator, by placing a superthin coating of gold on silicon, a typical solar cell material. Like in a solar cell, light shining on silicon energizes its electrons. With the gold layer, the shadow-effect energy generator produces an electric current when part of the device lies in shadow.
Pathogenic reduction of SARS-CoV 19 using "Riboflavin" and "UV light".
Researchers use PRT(pathogen reduction technology) for exposing coronavirus to riboflavin and ultraviolet light (Riboflavin (vitamin B2) activated by ultraviolet light ,produces active oxygen which damages cell membrane and prevent replication of virus),this result in reduction of blood born pathogen (SARS-Cov19 ) in human plasma and whole blood product like platelets .
"Proxima Centauri b" Planet.
Researchers at European Southern Observatory suggest that Proxima b is about 20 times closer to its star than Earth is to the Sun, but the amount of radiative energy which the planet receives from its star is comparable to what Earth receives from Sun. The researchers therefore tend to believe that located in Proxima Centauri, Proxima B's surface temperature would be similar to that of the earth, and added with life-supporting atmospheric stimulus it could well enable the flourishing of…
"Saliva can also use to monitor diabetes"
The test has been developed as an alternative to the current prevalent practice of monitoring blood glucose, which can be invasive, painful and costly. Lab tests of the saliva process had an accuracy rate of 95.2%. The research shows promising results for monitoring diabetes, which affects an estimated 425 million people worldwide – around half of them undiagnosed.
Scientists have discovered the 70-million-year-old remains of a megaraptor in Argentina, which means this dinosaur may have been one of the last carnivorous ones on the planet. Megaraptors were slimmer than the Tyrannosaurus rex, and were built for speed, with long tails that enabled them to maintain balance.
