At this point, the greatest danger of climate engineering may be how little is known about where countries stand on these potentially planet-altering technologies. Who is moving forward? Who is funding research? And who is being left out of the conversation?
Elon Musk, the CEO of US private aerospace manufacturer SpaceX, called Russia’s rocket engineering ‘excellent’ and said the country’s rocket engines are the best currently flying, also suggesting that the reusable version of Russia's Angara rocket would be ‘great’.
Researchers at the University of Massachusetts Medical School are the first to show that it's possible to reverse the behavior of an animal by flipping a switch in neuronal communication. The research provides a new approach for studying the neural circuits that govern behavior and has important implications for how scientists think about neural connectomes.
A research ― conducted by Dr. Basil Hubbard, an assistant professor of pharmacology in the University of Alberta's Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry ― shows a new technology advancing the field of genome engineering. The method significantly improves the ability of scientists to target specific faulty genes, and then edit them, replacing the damaged genetic code with healthy DNA.
