In DNA, scientists find a solution to building a superconductor that could transform technology

Credit: Pixabay/CC0 Public Domain Scientists at the University of Virginia Medical School and their collaborators have used DNA to overcome a near-intractable hurdle to engineering materials that would revolutionize electronics. One possible consequence of such engineered materials could be superconductors, which have zero electrical resistance, allowing electrons to flow unimpeded. This means that it neither …

The Webb Telescope sees star formation in the Cartwell Wheel Galaxy

The James Webb Space Telescope peered through dust and gas to reveal star formation in a rare wheel-shaped galaxy formed in a galactic crash long ago. The galaxy is called cartwheel Because of its striking resemblance to an old-fashioned wagon wheel, it was previously studied by Hubble Space TelescopeBut Webb’s infrared look revealed a large …

Shaun the Sheep will be the first “astronaut” to fly the Artemis I mission around the moon

The identity of the first astronaut to set off on the Artemis I mission to the moon has been revealed – and it’s none other than Shaun the Sheep. A statue of Aardman’s beloved character will be placed aboard NASA’s Orion spacecraft before liftoff from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA, later this summer. The …

Shiny green meteors seem to be raining down on New Zealand, but why?

It might look like New Zealand is being bombarded right now. After a massive meteor exploded over the sea near Wellington on July 7, causing a sonic boom that could be heard across the bottom of the South Island, a smaller fireball was captured two weeks later over Canterbury. Fireballs Aotearoa, a collaboration between astronomers …

Scientists study the inner ear to determine the beginnings of mammals

Mammals can produce their own body heat and control their body temperature. This process is known as heat absorption or hot bleeding. Scientists think it may be the reason why mammals may dominate nearly everyone environmental system. Warm-blooded mammals are more active than cold-blooded animals. They can live in different environments, from the frozen arctic …
