New Discoveries

Latest discoveries and research news from the world of science and technology.

Ancient Landslide Discovered Near Australia's Great Barrier Reef
The Gloria Knolls Slide is at least 300,000 years old and 32 cubic km in volume, or 30 times the size of Uluru. The landslide could also have triggered a large tsunami, said the international team behind the find. The scientists said debris from the landslide, found as deep as 1,350m...
Early Detection of Pancreatic Cancer Blood Test Awaiting Approval
A new blood test that detects pancreatic cancer in its early stages may reduce the deadliness of the disease. Pancreatic cancer is known as the "Silent killer" because it is usually too advanced to treat by the time symptoms arise. Only 5 percent of people diagnosed with it are still alive...
If you're not a morning person - now you have an excuse...
Researchers at the genetics company 23andMe have identified 15 regions of the human genome that influence whether someone considers themselves a "Morning person," meaning someone who likes to wake up and go to bed early, or an "Evening person." The finding, published in February's Nature Communications, means that there...
Ever wonder what ET’s have to say?
The Breakthrough Initiative, backed by Prof Stephen Hawking and Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, will train a US radio telescope to target it's listening on Tabby's Star. Tabby's Star has been a subject of attention and controversy over its irregular dimming pattern. Some scientists have been puzzled by large dips in the star's...
Stem cell therapy successful in restoring movement in paralyzed man
Doctors at the USC Neurorestoration Center and Keck Medicine of USC injected an experimental treatment made from stem cells and other cells into the damaged cervical spine of a recently paralyzed 21-year-old man as part of a multi-center clinical trial. Two weeks after surgery, Kristopher Boesen began to show signs...
You wouldn't believe how they cured the blind with lab grown cells
Melbourne researchers say they have successfully grown and implanted cornea cells to cure blindness. The cells were grown on a layer of synthetic film and transplanted into the eyes of animals, restoring vision. The technique, developed by researchers at Melbourne University and the Centre for Eye Research, could replace transplants of...
Earth has a "New Moon"
NASA findings show that there is a quasi-moon that's been orbiting the Earth for almost a century. One is the loneliest number, especially if you're a moon circling the Earth. Sure, it is smaller than you and goes around the Earth amazingly irregularly, but still, two of anything is always better...
Listen to a Song That Hasn't Been Heard For a Thousand Years
Such was its importance, it was translated by many major figures, including King Alfred the Great, Chaucer and Elizabeth I. Hundreds of Latin songs were recorded in neumes from the 9th through to the 13th century. Because these aural traditions died out in the 12th century, it has often been...
Engineers developed fiber-optic technology that transmits data at record-speeds of 57 gigabits per second
With record-breaking speeds for fiber-optic data transmission, University of Illinois engineers have paved a fast lane on the information superhighway - creating on-ramps for big data in the process. As big data has gotten bigger, the need has grown for a high-speed data transmission infrastructure that can accommodate the ever-growing...
Simple mathematical formula explains why evolution will make our wisdom teeth disappear 1
A new mathematical model explains the evolution of our teeth, and could help reveal new details of our evolutionary history. Scientists have found a simple mathematical formula to explain the development of our teeth. Teeth are important tools in evolutionary research as they are relatively hard and often better preserved than...
