NASA, Japan Advance Space Cooperation, Sign Agreement for Lunar Rover

Posted by in categories: education, space travel, sustainability

NASA Administrator Bill Nelson and Japan’s Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) Masahito Moriyama have signed an agreement to advance sustainable human exploration of the Moon.

Japan will design, develop, and operate a pressurized rover for crewed and uncrewed exploration on the Moon. NASA will provide the launch and delivery of the rover to the Moon as well as two opportunities for Japanese astronauts to travel to the lunar surface.

ATLAS provides first measurement of the W-boson width at the LHC

Posted by in categories: cosmology, particle physics

The discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 slotted in the final missing piece of the Standard Model puzzle. Yet, it left lingering questions. What lies beyond this framework? Where are the new phenomena that would solve the universe’s remaining mysteries, such as the nature of dark matter and the origin of matter-antimatter asymmetry?

Real-life multiverse could exist and be ‘infinitely bigger’ than ever imagined, scientists discover

Posted by in categories: cosmology, quantum physics

A NEW study of quantum mechanics has argued that a real-life multiverse could be much bigger than ever previously imagined.

Just like the fictional multiverse depicted in sci-fi movies and the Marvel superhero universe, we too could be living in a world where multiple realities are possible.

That’s according to a study published on the academic site Arxiv.

Revolutionizing IoT Power: The Pyroelectrochemical Cell Solution

Posted by in categories: chemistry, energy, food, internet, physics

Can you wirelessly power wireless devices, thus improving and advancing the technology known an “Internet of Things” (IoT)? This is what a recent study published in Energy & Environmental Science hopes to address as a team of researchers from the University of Utah investigated how pyroelectrochemical cell (PECs) could be used to self-charge IoT devices through changes in immediate surrounding temperature, also known as ambient temperature. This study holds the potential to help a myriad of industries, including agriculture and machinery, by allowing IoT devices to charge without the need for electrical outlets.

“We’re talking very low levels of energy harvesting, but the ability to have sensors that can be distributed and not need to be recharged in the field is the main advantage,” said Dr. Roseanne Warren, who is an associate professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Utah and a co-author on the study. “We explored the basic physics of it and found that it could generate a charge with an increase in temperature or a decrease in temperature.”

Mechanisms of melanoma aggressiveness with age

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

The extracellular matrix is an essential component of the tumor microenvironment and affects cancer progression. Weeraratna and colleagues have now uncovered that age-related reductions in the level of hyaluronan and proteoglycan link protein 1 (HAPLN1) stimulate neoangiogenesis and compromise the vascular integrity of intratumoral blood vessels. These biological modifications converge to fuel distant melanoma metastasis.

Transplant ready: Formula saves 2-year-old from chronic kidney disease

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, health

The child required a specific nutrient blend to optimize health and reduce kidney strain.


Prescription drugs helped a toddler born with a rare and chronic kidney disease receive a kidney transplant and escape the net of repeated dialysis sessions, all due to the efforts of his mother and the team of doctors.

The toddler, Dinero Motton, had been diagnosed with a lower urinary tract obstruction and enlarged bladder when he was still in his mother’s womb.
