Researchers found new pain organ in the skin

August 18, 2019

Researchers at the Karolinska Institute have discovered new sensory receptor organs that can detect painful mechanical damage such as stab wounds and bruises. Pain causes suffering and results in substantial costs for society. Almost one person in every five experiences constant pain and there is a considerable need to find new painkilling drugs.

The wireless sensor band aid that attach to the skin to track our health conditions

August 18, 2019

Stanford engineers have developed experimental stickers that pick up physiological signals emanating from the skin then wirelessly beam these health readings to a receiver clipped onto clothing It’s all part of a system called BodyNet. We tend to take our skin’s protective function for granted ignoring its other roles in signaling subtleties like a fluttering […]

Microplastics floating in the snow

August 18, 2019

In recent years, microplastic particles have been repeatedly found in sea water, drinking water, and even in animals. These small particles are also transported out of the atmosphere and then drifted from the air, mainly from snow, and even in remote areas such as the North Pole and the Alps.

The researchers showed for the first time the three dimensional effect of quantum hall

August 17, 2019

The QHE quantum hall effect, previously known as a 2D two dimensional system, was considered possible by Bertrand Halperin in 1987 for a three-dimensional 3D system. However, the theory was recently proven by researchers from Singapore University of Technology and Design SUTD and their colleagues from around the world.

Cyclocarbon A new form of carbon that is synthesized

August 17, 2019

A research team from Oxford University and IBM Research has successfully synthesized cyclic carbon-carbon-multicarbon compounds for the first time. This group explains the process they use and what they have learned about carbon-binding bonds.

Hubble portrait of gas shining star

August 17, 2019

Although more like a microscope than a telescope, this round object, called NGC 2022, is certainly not algae or small jellyfish, but a large ball of gas in space emitted from an aging star. The star is visible at the center of the ball and shines through the gases it previously held for most of […]

The expression of the M gene segment of influenza A virus determines the host

August 16, 2019

The host range of influenza A virus IAV virus is limited by incorrect expression of M virus gene segments. IAV pandemics occur when viruses adapted to nonhuman hosts overcome species barriers to successfully infect humans and maintain human transmission by humans. Assessment of potential adaptations and thus the risk of a pandemic caused by a […]

Gaps in understanding magnetic monopoly can be a signal for new technology

August 16, 2019

Breakthroughs in understanding the behavior of pseudo particles, called magnetic monopolies, can lead to the development of new technologies to replace electric charges. University of Kent researchers use a combination of quantum and classical physics to study how magnetic atoms interact to form compound objects known as magnetic monopoles.

The composition of the eyes of fossil insects surprised researchers

August 16, 2019

Eumelanin, a natural pigment found, for example, in the human eye, was first detected in a 54-year-old water fly fossil constituent. Previously, it was thought that melanoma pigment screening did not exist in arthropods. We were surprised by what we found because we did not look for it or expect it, researchers said.

Young Jupiter was hit in the head by a large newborn planet

August 16, 2019

The colossal frontal collision between Jupiter and the planet that still formed in the early solar system some 4.5 billion years ago could explain the shocking reading from NASA’s Juno spacecraft. Astronomers from Rice University and Sun Yat-sen University in China said that their views on the impact scenario could explain Juno’s mysterious gravity measurements […]
