NASA recycles 98% of astronauts urine, sweat in space to drinking water
In a significant milestone, NASA said it was able to recycle about 98 per cent urine and sweat from astronauts aboard the International Space Station into drinking water -- an advance that can help it in upcoming missions to the Moon, Mars and beyond.
UK scientists create new human embryo model with heartbeat
This comes days after scientists reported development of a "synthetic" embryo with brain and beating heart, without the help of eggs or sperm.The latest research, also from University of Cambridge, used human stem cells to create synthetic structures, which replicates cells seen in the third and fourth week of pregnancy. The findings can help understand the impact of genetic disorders and the causes of recurrent miscarriage.
Scientists find key building block for life on Saturn's moon
The Cassini spacecraft, which explored Saturn and its system of rings and moons for over 13 years, from 2004 to 2017, discovered Enceladus' subsurface liquid water. They analysed samples in a plume of ice grains and gases erupting into space from cracks in the moon's icy surface.
Sermorelin Peptide and Research in Tumor Cells
Analogous to the GHRH factor, the Sermorelin polypeptide consists of GHRH (1-29 acid)-amide. This structure is known as a GHRH factor analog. Because of the presence of this structure, Sermorelin has been the subject of studies in various scientific research subfields dealing with growth hormone deficiencies
Webb telescope finds over 700 galaxies of early universe
Scientists led an investigation into galaxies that existed millions of years after the big bang. This was a crucial time known as the Epoch of Reionization. For hundreds of millions of years after the big bang, the universe was filled with a gaseous fog that made it opaque to energetic light. By one billion years after the big bang, the fog had cleared and the universe became transparent, a process known as reionization.
Scientists find new type of cosmic threads in Milky Way
Now, Yusef-Zadeh and his collaborators have discovered a new population of filaments -- but these threads are much shorter and lie horizontally or radially, spreading out like spokes on a wheel from the black hole. Although the two populations of filaments share several similarities, Yusef-Zadeh assumes they have different origins.
4 of Uranus' large moons may hold water: NASA
In all, at least 27 moons circle Uranus, with the four largest ranging from Ariel, at 1,160 kilometres across, to Titania, which is 1,580 kilometres across.The study is the first to detail the evolution of the interior makeup and structure of all five large moons: Ariel, Umbriel, Titania, Oberon, and Miranda.
