Breakthrough as scientists in China produce genetically modified animals that are more difficult to infect with tuberculosis

Researchers at Princeton University and their colleagues recently reported in the journal Science that termite mounds may serve as oases in the desert, allowing the plants that surround them to persist on a fraction of the annual rainfall otherwise required and to bounce back after a withering drought. The mounds could thus prove potential bulwarks against climate change, preventing fragile dryland from slipping into lifeless wasteland.

Astronomoek lehen aldiz behatu dute litio elementuaren sorrera nova leherketa batean

For years some physicists have been hoping to crack the mystery of high-temperature superconductivity—the ability of some complex materials to carry electricity without resistance at temperatures high above absolute zero—by simulating crystals with patterns of laser light and individual atoms. Now, a team has taken—almost—the next-to-last step in such «optical lattice» simulation by reproducing the pattern of magnetism seen in high-temperature superconductors from which the resistance-free flow of electricity emerges.

High above the spiral Milky Way, astronomers have spotted two clusters of new stars growing at the fringes of our galaxy. The discovery, published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, appears to be the first such stellar cradles found outside the galactic disk.

Todo empezó hace 200 años con unos cubos gigantes de hielo. Esta es la escalofriante -por sorprendente- historia de los hombres que cambiaron el planeta para siempre, bajándole la temperatura.

In drought-ridden US, water managers consider using a coating one molecule thick to reduce evaporation from reservoirs.

Neokortexa handitzea eragiten duten giza gene bat eta gene-erregulatzaile bat identifikatu dituzte

Se ha convertido en el tema del día en internet. Unas personas ven el vestido blanco y dorado y otras lo ven azul y negro. Aunque te parezca increíble, la neurociencia tiene una explicación para esta discrepancia.

Common in the US, rare in Europe and now championed in Africa, male circumcision is hotly debated.
