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

As well as a potential source of stem cells for use in regenerative medicine, the technique could open up new avenues of research into disorders such as Down's syndrome. Human pluripotent stem cells for use in regenerative medicine or biomedical research come from two sources: embryonic stem cells, derived from...
A gene mutation associated with colon cancer has been discovered in an 18th century Hungarian mummy. The finding suggests colon cancer's genetic roots predate modern risk factors. A combination of low temperatures, ventilation and low humidity allowed for excellent tissue preservation. Recent DNA analysis of the preserved tissue revealed a mutation of...
Splitting water is a two-step process, and in a new study, researchers have performed one of these steps with 100% efficiency. The results shatter the previous record of 60% for hydrogen production with visible light, and emphasize that future research should focus on the other step in order to realize...
Inspired by a beetle's shell, a cactus spine, and the skin of a carnivorous plant, this slick, bumpy coating is a material straight out of Dune or Star Wars. Put this water-saving coating into a rain of steady droplets it condenses airborne water vapor into liquid 10 times faster than...
Researchers have figured out how to reverse the symptoms of autism in mice, simply by turning on a gene like a light switch. Although the technique is a long way off being trialled in humans, the results provide hope that a similar approach could eliminate some of the most frustrating...
Various kinds of turbulence can stir up this hot soup of particles and dissipate some of the intense heat, and a major problem has been to understand and predict exactly how this turbulence works, and thus how to overcome it. A long-standing discrepancy between predictions and observed results in test...
The unusual armor that boxfish possess derives their strength from scales that are shaped like hexagons. Engineers from the University of California conducted a study and shared their research that got published in a journal called Acta Materialia. The researchers went on to explain that the structure that these boxfish possess...
There are some fascinating tales of humans as well as beasts being able to live through extreme cold which has lead to lots of research. It is time to bring one of these to light with this post. Christine Newman had gone past an empty ranger station before she began to...

Superman of Metals

A team of scientists claims to have produced the epitome of all metals. It is said to be such a tough and lightweight material that it can potentially pave the way for the manufacture of much faster-travelling motor vehicles. Just imagine how something like that could innovate industries like air, road...
A team is working on the Oscillation Project in Gran Sasso with Emulsion-tRacking Apparatus once said that they found superluminal neutrinos. On another instance, an engineer based in Bologna named Andrea Rossi said that she had a cold fusion reactor that could produce heat that could prove to be commercially...
