10 Recent Scientific Breakthrough!
Zombie Pig Brain
Pigs have been privileged to be part of a lot of research work, and it was groundbreaking when researchers from Yale University were able to bring pig brains to life. They injected a set of chemicals into the pig’s head after they’d been slaughtered and the animals were dead for close to four hours. Even though the pigs were not able to wake up fully, in their subconscious minds they were able to come alive and do normal functions such as streamlining blood circulation and controlling their body metabolism this successful experiment proved that brain death can be reversed something that could cause a real awakening in the field of neurology. With little tweaks, it opens a world of possibility where brain injuries, comas, and degenerative brain conditions such as Alzheimer’s could be curable.
Post Impact Dinosaur
Scientists finally put two and two together they now know exactly what happened when an asteroid landed on earth and wiped out all the dinosaurs. Pink granite samples connected to the historical event were discovered and excavated at a mountain crater in Mexico, this new theory elaborately explained the events that followed when the meteorite hit hard, the meteorite hit the earth with an impact that equals 10 billion atomic bombs and everything around turned into vapor, another one-minute molten lava hit the skies at 1,000 miles an hour, the lava was able to go high enough to even hit parts of the moon, five minutes later motor rocks were in the air solidifying and forming what seemed to be glass bullets, the bullet sprayed the earth with a force of a machine gun killing any dinosaurs in their path, dinosaurs that survived the bullets were slowly killed by toxic sulfur that hit the air after the sun had been blacked out it was such a catastrophic event that after a few minutes dinosaurs became extinct.
3D Printed Food
Meat is not only hazardous to our health but also to the sustainability of the environment. An innovative solution was found for meat lovers. Nova meat a company based in Spain was able to print a delicious beef steak at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona it was a plant-based meat alternative. 3d printers are actually on a roll and right now printing material that resembles and feels exactly like human tissue, so the logic here is, with the same genius being used to produce synthetic body tissue, it would be possible to print material that resembles the texture and taste of beef.
Smart companies have made it their core mission to use alternative sources of energy. In major industries, one very forward-thinking move is the construction of solar roads, the first one Normandy’s solar road in France was constructed and tested. The idea is to build roads with solar panels as opposed to tarmac this means on top of being functional and durable the solar panels would also be used to regenerate power since they’re in the Sun all day, in the United States there are almost 4 million miles of roads if these were converted into solar panels they would easily generate power to run everything without the need of using any fossil fuels. The testing revealed that the solar panels get dirty pretty quickly and when they overheat they’re not as efficient in generating energy. The Netherlands where they started small with a solar bicycle lane the road surpassed their energy estimates.
The Universe’s First Molecule
A team at NASA that deals with stratospheric observation for infrared astronomy discovered a new molecule that’s been in existence for ages. They marveled at discovering helium hydride which is a combination of helium and hydrogen and they’re convinced it’s the first molecule ever created so the backstory to this theory is that immediately after the Big Bang Theory the universe only had a handful of atoms the first two were helium and hydrogen and of course the combination of these two would be the hydrogen-helium molecule since 1925 researchers have been trying to find this molecule with little success.
Bombed An Asteroid
Sometime in 2019 the Japanese Space Agency launched and bombed an asteroid, it was a scientific kind of bombing whereby they used Japan’s Hayabusa 2 spacecraft which is considered an asteroid hunter. Hayabusa 2 was set to touchdown on an asteroid. For this expedition, this satellite used a baseball-sized explosive and bombed the crater into the space rock and got authentic samples that would further their research on the origin of life on Earth.
Customized Cancer Vaccines
Cancer is a hard nut to crack keeping scientists and researchers awake at night. A great step in the right direction though in starting trials on an isolated treatment for the disease. Cancer researchers know for a fact that cancer cells have foreign bodies with a unique genetic sequence not available anywhere else in the body, so the trick is to figure out how the immune system can target that specific genetic sequence without harming any other cells in the body multiplying the cell’s genetic sequence. Through DNA genetic mapping helps create a weakened variety of the strain, then introduce it into the patient’s body just as vaccines work the weaker strains of the cancer cells are used to teach the immune system to recognize the danger and fight it.
Robot Controlling Army Helmet
The robotic revolution is getting closer and closer. The US army got a patent on a helmet which they plan to use for remote controlling of robots, this technology is called Moana, it’s a good self-preservation strategy since it means that from afar off the soldiers will give instructions to robots and have them fight. Unlike Predator drones that are still operated by humans, the combat robots will be independent these combat robots will be given commands to follow rather than be manually controlled.
Heat Vision Mice
Scientists from the universe of Science and Technology of China and the University of Massachusetts Medical School came together in a high-powered collaboration that allowed mice to see like the predator. The researchers injected nano pots into the mice and attach them to the optic nerves of the mice enabling them to see in infrared. The experiment went on for a solid 10 days and the mice were able to see the heat the whole time and experienced zero side effects with little adjustments the same experiment would probably work on humans and give them heat vision.
An out-of-this-world idea to create synthetic non-human life-form. A dedicated research team from Britain’s Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology worked on rewriting the biology of the ecoli bacterium, in the process a new strand of bacteria came to life, it’s the first organism with 100% synthetic and altered DNA furthermore the bacterium went on to survive and has been able to produce other ecoli bacteria this achievement means that in future scientists might be able to create more sophisticated forms of life.
