Nanorobots Injected Into Cancer Patients Could Target And Obliterate Tumors

Cancer-fighting ‘nanorobots’ could potentially prove effective in eradicating tumors, a new research has revealed. For the first time, researchers were able to successfully program tiny machines in mammals, that would then target tumors and shrink them by cutting off their blood supply. These nanorobots are made from a flat, rectangular DNA origami sheet that is

The Sun Might Soon Get Dimmer (Study)

According to some scientists, by 2050, the sun might become unusually cool. This phenomenon is known as “grand minumum”, a very low point in an otherwise steady 11-year cycle. Usually, when it is at it highest point, the nuclear fusion that happens at the sun’s core causes more magnetic loops to go high into its

Asteroid crashing into Earth

Dinosaur-Killing Asteroid Also Triggered Magma Releases (Study)

According to a study which the journal Science Advances recently published, the asteroid that hit the Earth about 66 million years ago and that also brought the doom of dinosaurs might have also triggered huge magma releases beneath the ocean. This new discovery only provides more proof that the extinction event we all know about

Elon Musk Reacts After Falcon Heavy Successful Launch

Even if the recent launch of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket amazed everyone on this planet, the company’s CEO, Elon Musk, still couldn’t believe that the mission was really a success. The mega rocket’s mission is to propel a Tesla electric car into our solar system. After the launch, Musk told the reporters at the Kennedy

Permafrost Could Release Harmful Mercury Due to Climate Change

It’s no secret that the Arctic permafrost that is melting because of climate change releases powerful greenhouse gases. However, like this wasn’t bad enough, a team of scientists recently revealed that its melting might also cause harmful mercury to escape. This neurotoxin is very dangerous for human health and should this happen, the consequences could
