Research findings from China's Tianzhou-1 Space Mission showed that the microgravity environment in space promotes heart cell differentiation of mice induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells, providing new perspectives on future human space travel.
NASA’s OSIRIS-REx spacecraft discovered ingredients for water on a relatively nearby skyscraper-sized asteroid, a rocky acorn-shaped object that may hold clues to the origins of life on Earth, scientists said on Monday.
Climate action is way off course in all but one of the world’s 20 biggest economies, according to a report that shows politicians are paying more heed to the fossil fuel industry than to advice from scientists.
Adults well into their 70s can generate hundreds of new neurons a day — just as much as young people — according to a study that disputes previous findings that brain activity slows down as people age.
Much like detectives study fingerprints to identify the culprit, scientists used NASA's Hubble and Spitzer space telescopes to find the ‘fingerprints’ of water in the atmosphere of a hot, bloated, Saturn-mass exoplanet some 700 light-years away. And, they found a lot of water. In fact, the planet, known as WASP-39b, has three times as much water as Saturn does.
An international team has drawn on surprising genetic and archeological evidence to show that Przewalski's horse, previously believed to be the last wild equine in the world, actually descends from horses once domesticated by humans.
