Eruptions on the Sun’s surface send clouds of electrically charged particles towards Earth, producing solar storms that–among other things–can trigger the beautiful Northern Lights over the Arctic regions.
During the first three weeks of the 2003 Iraq conflict, the U.S. military committed egregious war crimes using radioactive weapons. Even though the Pentagon pledged to never use this technology again, military […]
Scientists developed a mouse embryo structure using stem cells grown in the lab. The cells grew into primitive embryos that had identical internal structures to those that emerge during normal development in the womb.
For the first time in the history of the virtual currency, a single Bitcoin has become worth more than an ounce of gold.
Authorities sought to reassure people living on the banks of Valira River after its waters turned a vivid green on Thursday.
Yet another disturbing reason has emerged as to why you should be avoiding health-devastating genetically modified organisms, and it may be one of the most concerning yet. We know that GMO consumption has been linked to a host of serious conditions, but one thing we are not so sure about is the recent discovery of a hidden viral gene deep within genetically modified crops.
Unlike electronic computers, which rely on a fixed number of silicon chips, the new NUTM-like device utilizes DNA, which can replicate. No ordered operations or communication is necessary in the new computer — the DNA is edited or preprogrammed to replicate and carry out an exponential number of computational paths.
Are you ready for a world where technology and man are one? Science and technology have brought us to the point of “cyber-physical systems” which will soon exist, and this new reality is rapidly unfolding.
Faced with rising labor costs, fast-food giant Wendy’s has announced a plan to replace employees with self-ordering kiosks in 1,000 stores by the end of the year. Former McDonald’s USA CEO Ed Rensi says Wendy’s move is a direct response to the push for a minimum wage increase to $15-an hour, and he believes automation is here to stay.
Scientists should be permitted to modify human embryos destined for implantation in the womb to eliminate devastating genetic diseases such as sickle-cell anaemia or cystic fibrosis — once gene-editing techniques advance sufficiently for use in people and proper restrictions are in place. That’s the conclusion of a February 14 report from the US National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine.
Alphabet Inc’s YouTube will launch a live TV service in the next few months that offers the four major U.S. broadcast networks plus cable channels, YouTube Chief Executive Susan Wojcicki said on Tuesday.
Your future Netflix binge sessions could be beamed directly to your eye via a smart contact lens, and the co-founder of the company is all about it.
If it seems like your internet browsing is hitting more walls than possible today, you’ll be happy to know that it’s not your computer. A massive Amazon Web Services (AWS) outage is striking down lots and lots of web pages, leading to huge hiccups on a number of domains. Amazon is reporting the issue on its AWS dashboard, citing “Increased Error Rates,” which is a fancy way of saying that something is seriously broken.
Apple will ditch the Lightning connector on the iPhone 8 in favor of the industry’s standard USB Type-C connector, The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.
To create this chimera, the researchers fertilized a pig embryo then inserted human stem cells. The human cells were pluripotent stem cells, meaning they can develop into cells of any type. For […]
