The scientists found that miR-1 played an important role in preventing toxic protein aggregates by regulating a protein known as TBC-7. Associate Professor Roger Pocock, from the Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute (BDI), and colleagues from the University of Cambridge led...
The second interstellar object ever spotted passing through the solar system 2I/Borisov, will make its close approach to Earth and Sun on December 7/8. 2l/Borisov, first spotted this summer, continues to draw nearer to Earth and will reach its closest...
The first batch of research from NASA's Parker Solar Probe mission that was announced recently reveals intense "rogue waves" in the sun's atmosphere. A year ago, NASA’s Parker Solar Probe flew closer to the sun than any satellite in history,...
Researchers working on the next frontier of weather forecasting are hoping that weather conditions 3-to-4 weeks out will soon be as readily available as seven-day forecasts. Having this type of weather information--called subseasonal forecasts--in the hands of the public...
Some stress at a young age could actually lead to a longer life, new research shows. University of Michigan researchers have discovered that oxidative stress experienced early in life increases subsequent stress resistance later in life. Oxidative stress happens when...
The coldest chemical reaction in the known universe took place in what appears to be a chaotic mess of lasers. The appearance deceives: Deep within that painstakingly organized chaos, in temperatures millions of times colder than interstellar space, Kang-Kuen...
How did the almost 6000 languages of the world come into being? Researchers from the Leipzig Research Centre for Early Childhood Development at Leipzig University and the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology have tried to simulate the...
