Earth’s magnetic field protects life on Earth from radiation, but it can move, and the magnetic poles can even flip

Posted by in categories: climatology, space

The Earth’s magnetic field plays a big role in protecting people from hazardous radiation and geomagnetic activity that could affect satellite communication and the operation of power grids. And it moves.

Scientists have studied and tracked the motion of the magnetic poles for centuries. The historical movement of these poles indicates a change in the global geometry of the Earth’s magnetic field. It may even indicate the beginning of a field reversal—a “flip” between the north and south .

Revolutionizing Cancer Treatment with Enterome’s OncoMimics: A 2D Animation

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, innovation

Life Science Animation presents a groundbreaking 2D video animation that delves into the world of peptide-based cancer immunotherapies. In collaboration with Micropep, we explore Enterome’s OncoMimics platform, a novel approach to activating pre-existing memory T cell immunity for a more robust anti-tumor response.

Current immunotherapies often fall short as they only stimulate naïve T cell responses, leading to limited efficacy. Enterome’s innovative solution utilizes bacterial peptides, known as OncoMimics, that mimic tumor antigens. These OncoMimics are derived from common microbiome bacteria and are naturally tolerated by the human body.

‘Teenage Galaxies’ are Unusually Hot, Glowing with Unexpected Elements

Posted by in categories: chemistry, cosmology, evolution, physics

Similar to human teenagers, teenage galaxies are awkward, experience growth spurts and enjoy heavy metal — nickel, that is.

A Northwestern University-led team of astrophysicists has just analyzed the first results from the CECILIA (Chemical Evolution Constrained using Ionized Lines in Interstellar Aurorae) Survey, a program that uses NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) to study the chemistry of distant galaxies.

According to the early results, so-called “teenage galaxies” — which formed two-to-three billion years after the Big Bang — are unusually hot and contain unexpected elements, like nickel, which are notoriously difficult to observe.

Research suggests that dinosaurs may have influenced how human beings age

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

Science: Research suggest that dinosaurs 🦕 🦖 may have influenced how humans age today.

Human aging may have been influenced by millions of years of dinosaur domination according to a new theory from a leading aging expert. The ‘longevity bottleneck’ hypothesis has been proposed by Professor Joao Pedro de Magalhaes from the University of Birmingham in a new study published in BioEssays. The hypothesis connects the role that dinosaurs played over 100 million years with the aging process in mammals.

While some reptiles and amphibians show no significant signs of aging, all mammals—including humans—show a marked .

Brain Scans From Former NFL Players Identify Repair Protein in the Brain

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, neuroscience

In a new study using brain scans of former NFL athletes, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers say they found high levels of a repair protein present long after a traumatic brain injury such as a concussion takes place. The repair protein, known as 18 kDa translocator protein (TSPO), is known to be present in the brain at high levels in the immediate aftermath of brain injury as part of the inflammatory response and to facilitate repair. The new findings, published Oct. 30 in JAMA Network Open, suggest that brain injury and repair processes persist for years after players end collision sports careers, and lead to long-term cognitive problems such as memory loss.

“The findings show that participating in repeated collision sports like football may have a direct link to long-term inflammation in the brain,” says Jennifer Coughlin, M.D., associate professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Ongoing studies like the current one, she says, add details about how the brain heals — or doesn’t — and how repeated brain injuries, even mild ones that players routinely shake off, may over time affect cognitive abilities.
