Quantum heat pump: A new measuring tool for physicists

An illustration of the device, which consists of two superconducting circuits: a cold high frequency circuit (in blue) and a hot low frequency circuit (in red). Here, the current that flows in the red circuit generates an oscillating magnetic field which leads to the photon-pressure coupling. By sending in a strong signal to the blue …

Scientists Just Genetically Edited a Million Years of Evolution Into Mouse DNA

Changing the number of chromosomes an animal has can take millions of generations to happen in nature through the course of evolution – and now, scientists have been able to make these same changes in lab mice in a relative blink of an eye. The new technique using stem cells and gene editing is a …

Mucus Is So Handy That We Evolve It Over And Over Again, Finds Study

The animal kingdom is practically dripping in mucus. Amphibians, snails, and slugs are among the more famous masters of mucus, but even the loneliest microorganism can ooze a viscous slime from time to time. In our own species, mucus is produced in the mouth, the nose, the throat, the lungs, the gut, the cervix, and …

Scientists create ‘synthetic’ embryo with brain, beating heart in ‘world first’

Scientists have created the miracle of life — no male or female necessary. Using only a mixture of stem cells, University of Cambridge researchers were able to generate a live, “synthetic” mouse embryo — complete with a brain and beating heart in what they deemed a “world first.” It could have gone on to develop …

The 1,000-year-old skeleton was discovered in an oval shaped grave in Portugal. The team extracted DNA from the remains to reveal the man had Klinefelter syndrome. which occurs when there is an extra X chromosome

Oldest case of genetic condition that leaves men with smaller testes FOUND

Oldest clinical case of genetic condition that leaves men with smaller testes has been uncovered in the skeletal remains of a man who died 1,000 years ago in Portugal The skeletal remains showed the man who died 1,000 years ago had Klinefelter syndrome, which is caused by an extra X chromosome  This is the oldest …
