California [US], July 21 (ANI): Jupiter should have more impressive, larger rings than Saturn since it is larger. However, according to a recent study from UC Riverside, Jupiter's enormous moons block this vision from illuminating the night sky.
Washington [US], July 21 (ANI): For years, researchers have questioned how woodpeckers can repeatedly strike tree trunks with their beaks without suffering brain damage. This gave rise to the hypothesis that their skulls must serve as shock-absorbing helmets. Researchers dispute this idea, claiming that their skulls behave more like stiff hammers. In fact, their calculations revealed that any stress absorption would interfere with the woodpeckers' pecking capabilities.
Washington [US], July 20 (ANI): Through horizontal gene transfer, microorganisms and plants may have provided insects an evolutionary advantage hundreds of millions of years ago. More than 1,400 genes from 218 different insect species, including butterflies and moths, are reported to have come from bacteria, viruses, fungus, and plant sources. The study suggested that these genes may have been crucial for insect evolution since they enabled them to acquire advantageous qualities in growth, feeding, mating behaviour, and environmental adaption.
Adelaide [Australia], July 20 (ANI): With the help of research on ancient lungfish fossils, which filled in a gap in the history of land-living, four-legged creatures on earth, the evolution of the brain and nervous system in animals has been rewinded by more than 400 million years.
Washington [U.S], July 19 (ANI): Superconductors may eventually replace bulk magnets in equipment like electric motors, MRI scanners, and CT scanners. But the problem is that conventional high-temperature superconductors require a long and complicated manufacturing process and are made up of costly rare earth metals.
Minneapolis [St. Paul], July 19 (ANI): A group of researchers have come out with the first-of-its-kind comprehensive global dataset of the Earth's lakes and reservoirs which demonstrates how they have changed over the past 30+ years.
Ibaraki [Japan], July 19 (ANI): The Minamata Convention (MC) strives to prohibit and limit mercury commerce, a very dangerous contaminant. While the majority of nations participating in artisanal and small-scale gold mining (ASGM), the leading source of mercury contamination, are MC parties, the efficiency of the method has remained unknown.
Washington [US], July 19 (ANI): According to a new study, researchers discovered that dog-assisted interventions can considerably reduce stress in children with and without special needs by using a salivary cortisol level.
Washington [US], July 19 (ANI): The first documentation that dogs' sense of smell is integrated with their vision and other unique parts of the brain has been provided by Cornell University researchers. It sheds new light on how dogs experience and navigate the world.
Washington [US], July 19 (ANI): A stellar-mass black hole has been discovered in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a galaxy which is the neighbour of the Milky Way Galaxy. This discovery was made by a group of international experts who are renowned for disproving other black hole discoveries.
Stuttgart [Germany], July 18 (ANI): The Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems (MPI-IS) in Stuttgart conducted a study to discover how animals learn to walk and learn from stumbling. They created a four-legged, dog-sized robot to assist them in figuring out the details.
Washington [US], July 18 (ANI): Resilience and high quality of life are demonstrated by many individuals born with heart defects; however, they may face a range of health-related psychological and social challenges throughout their lives.
Washington [US], July 18 (ANI): The "rocking shadow" effect, described by astronomers from the University of Warwick, shows how discs in emerging planetary systems are oriented and how they travel around their host star. The outcome also provides hints as to how they might change over time.
Washington [US], July 18 (ANI): Organ transplant recipients take life-long immunosuppressive drugs to prevent their bodies from mounting an immune response against the donated organ, yet a substantial number of them still reject the organs. A new study shows that transplant recipients also mount an immune response against commensal bacteria in the organ graft, adding to the immune response against the genetic makeup of the tissue and reducing the effectiveness of immunosuppressive drugs.
Houston [US], July 18 (ANI): Researchers from Rice University have shown that the increasingly popular CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing tool may be used in human cells in a variety of new potent ways, according to a recent study.
