It could be found up to 30,000 astronomical units from the sun. One AU is the distance between the Earth and the sun, about 93 million miles.

n in Humans in the current issue of the Journal of Cardiovascular Pharmacology and Therapeutics. These are the first data in humans to show that all doses of aspirin used in clinical practice increase nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is released from the b
Fluorescence lifetime of dye molecules is a sensitive reporter on local microenvironment which is generally independent of fluorophores concentration and can be used as a means of discrimination between molecules with spectrally overlapping emission.
US scientists have used stem cell technology to create mice from two fathers, an advance that they say could help preserve endangered species and even help same-sex couples have their own genetic children one day.
Self-assembly of planar molecules on a surface can result in the formation of a wide variety of close-packed or porous structures. Two-dimensional porous arrays provide host sites for trapping guest species of suitable size. Here we show that a non

With seriously large amounts of content online from YouTube to Hulu to Vimeo, there’s never been a better time to get a TV that can access online content. But there are pitfalls:
As far back as 2006 Spectrolab was achieving conversion efficiencies of over 40 percent in the lab with its high-efficiency multi-junction concentrator solar cells and it reached a peak of 41.6 percent with a test cell last year, setting a new world
The team identified a mechanism essential to regenerating myelin sheaths -- the layers of insulation that protect nerve fibres in the brain -- and showed how it could be used to make the brain's own stem cells undertake this repair.
NEW HOPE FOR MILLIONS! A major breakthrough has occurred in medical science's ongoing war against one of the greatest killers of all time: cancer. The landmark research presented at the British Thoracic Society (BTS), lights the pathway towards a re
echnologically, the nano graphene-based, ionic liquid-enabled supercapacitor provides a specific energy density of 85.6 Wh/kg (based on the total electrode weight) at room temperature and 136 Wh/kg at 80°C, both measured at a current density of 1 A/g
Colitis is common in North America and Northern Europe, where helminth (parasitic worm) infections are rare. Conversely, the disease is rare in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, where helminth infections are endemic, leading researchers to hypothesize
The current research is the first large-scale genome-wide study of copy number variation (CNV) in major depressive disorder (MDD), a major psychiatric and behavioral disorder affecting an estimated 16 percent of the U.S. population. CNVs are deletion
The funny thing about Moore’s Law is that every single time the industry calls for its inevitable demise, the Gods of Technology come and knock you on your ass. When we think we’ve pushed lithography and compacting transistors to their absolute limit
Researchers working on mice have found an enzyme in the brain that appears to make pain last after nerve injury and they hope to use it as a new target to treat chronic pain in people. In a paper published in Science magazine Friday, the scientis
"We know that some microbes can breathe arsenic, but what we've found is a microbe doing something new -- building parts of itself out of arsenic," said Felisa Wolfe-Simon, a NASA Astrobiology Research Fellow in residence at the U.S. Geological Su
One of the most respected scientists in the field of physics, Sir Roger Penrose, has found concentric circles in the Big Bang data—analogous to ripples in a pond being formed after a stone is tossed into it. He believes those concentric circles are e
According to Ian Pearson, a British futurist, death will be a thing of the past by 2050. Can brain uploading be achieved within 40 years? Sooner, say some experts. What's needed are super fast computers with huge memory capacity. They see that happe
In theory, these ought to be safer than X-rays because millimetre photons do not have enough energy to break chemical bonds. Last year, however, researchers at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico suggested that these low energy photons coul
The paper-based e-ink technology uses the electrowetting method, in which an electric field is applied to colored droplets in a display unit to effectively turn on and off pixels in an array. Unlike
The confinement of molecular species in nanoscale environments leads to intriguing dynamic phenomena. Notably, the organization and rotational motions of individual molecules were controlled by carefully designed, fully supramolecular host architectu
Scientists are reporting early success at transforming one kind of specialized cell into another, a feat of biological alchemy that doctors may someday perform inside a patient's body to restore health.
There are two ways to go about testing this, neither of which are practical. One requires the energy of dozens of Large Hadron Colliders. The other could yield a cauldron-full of flaming plutonium.
owever, once the body adjusted its expectations it began to lose weight at the rate of 2 ½ pounds per month for four months with no discomfort at all. I suspect that I have dropped fifteen pounds in all to date. An equal amount would place me at my
As Nissan and GM prepare to ship flagship electric vehicles, Toyota is taking another road.
A new handheld ultrasound device could be the first that can connect directly to cell-phone and Wi-Fi networks.
Yet another approach involves Z-pinch – a type of plasma confinement system that uses an electrical current in the plasma (essentially a cloud of ions) to generate a magnetic field that compresses it. The pinch method, which Sandia calls a dark-horse
Engineers have developed a new type of microchip muscle stimulator implant that will enable people with paraplegia to exercise their paralysed leg muscles. It is the first time that researchers have developed a device of this kind that is small enoug
A new cement-like material that could be used to form sidewalks, bike and jogging paths, driveways and parking lots, may be able to lessen two environmental problems, namely plastic waste and polluted rainwater runoff. The substance is called Plastis
