Washington [US], August 20 (ANI): As NASA prepares to send astronauts back to the Moon under Artemis, the agency has identified 13 candidate landing regions near the lunar South Pole. Each region contains multiple potential landing sites for Artemis III which will be the first of the Artemis missions to bring the crew to the lunar surface, including the first woman to set foot on the Moon.
Washington [US], August 19 (ANI): Impacts affect the porosity and structure of moons and planets more dramatically than scientists suspected, increasing their potential habitability for life. Studying how those impacts affect planetary bodies, asteroids, moons and other rocks in space helps planetary scientists understand extraplanetary geology, especially where to look for precious matter including water, ice and even, potentially, microbial life.
Washington [US], August 18 (ANI): The surface of the cortex of the young human brain has been mapped by scientists at the UNC School of Medicine with unprecedented resolution. It revealed the development of key functional regions from two months before birth to two years after.
Washington [US], August 17 (ANI): A recent study has uncovered small but discernible links between social media engagement with misinformation about the 2020 US presidential election and voter behavior in the 2021 Georgia Senate runoff election.
Washington [US], August 17 (ANI): In a new study, two University of Chicago astrophysicists laid out a method for using pairs of colliding black holes to measure how fast the universe is expanding, and thus understand how the universe evolved, what it is made out of, and where it's going.
Washington [US], August 17 (ANI): Published in the journal 'Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences' (PNAS) on August 17, a study uncovers small but discernible links between social media engagement with misinformation about the 2020 US presidential election and voter behaviour in the 2021 Georgia Senate runoff election. After the 2020 US presidential election and President Joseph R. Biden's close victory in Georgia, misinformation and claims of election fraud were promoted.
Lisbon [Portugal], August 16 (ANI): White blood cells that reside in the intestines, a particular class of immune cells known as tissue-resident lymphocytes, use sugar as an energy source and have a faster metabolism than lymphocytes that circulate in the blood, according to a recent study.
New Delhi [India], August 15 (ANI): The latest generation of climate models projects an increase in severity and frequency of very wet Indian summer monsoon seasons, a new study by scientists from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impacts Research shows.
Montreal [Canada], August 15 (ANI): Researchers have discovered that using ultrasound waves and bubbles, they can control the stickiness of adhesive bandages. This discovery could pave the way for new advances in medical adhesives, particularly in situations where adhesives are difficult to apply, such as on wet skin.
Washington [US], August 14 (ANI): Disruption of the circadian clocks that keep the body and its cells entrained to the 24-hour day-night cycle plays a critical role in weight gain, according to a pair of studies.
Washington [US], August 14 (ANI): An ongoing research underway at The University of Queensland is focusing on stopping children undergoing chemotherapy from feeling pain and other debilitating side effects.
Washington [US], August 14 (ANI): A new study of ancient mass extinction suggests that ancient high latitudes, to which early dinosaurs were largely relegated, regularly froze over, and that the creatures adapted an apparent key to their later dominance.
Montreal [Canada], August 14 (ANI): Researchers found out that utilising ultrasonic waves and bubbles, they can adjust the stickiness of adhesive bandages. This innovation could pave the way for further breakthroughs in medical adhesives, particularly in situations where adhesives are difficult to apply, such as on moist skin.
