Cassini has captured unprecedented views of the oddly shaped Pan during the spacecraft’s final weeks.
Scientists conducted a landmark experiment last year which determined that crops grown in (simulated) Martian soil are safe to eat. Who knew there was an International Potato Center!
Physicists have figured out how to squeeze big groups of electrons through a gap in a piece of metal faster than current physics could predict.
Referred to as a ‘superballistic’ flow, the newly discovered behavior describes how groups of electrons can travel through tight spaces faster than a single electron, and it could lead to materials that can transmit electricity with almost no resistance.
A team in China has corrected genetic mutations in at least some of the cells in three normal human embryos using the CRISPR genome editing technique. The latest study is the first to describe the results of using CRISPR in viable human embryos, New Scientist can reveal.
