Born in the history of the first rhesus monkeys from sperm in the frozen testicles

Procedure that involves removing andfreezing the immature tissue of the testicle, followed by its implantation, led to the first birth of a living healthy monkey. This technique can theoretically help boys during the puberty period, who will receive cancer treatment: 30% of them become infertile due to the dramatic effects of chemotherapy and radiation. Currently these boys have no choice that would allowContinue Reading

In the capital of Norway will install wireless charging stations for taxis

Norway's appetites for electric carsrise every year. For example, according to the latest data, 40 percent of all car sales in the country last year accounted for electric cars. Therefore, the news that the government of the country is going to further stimulate the transfer of population from conventional vehicles with an internal combustion engine to environmentally friendly transport through installationContinue Reading

The extinction of the first mammal species due to global warming has been officially confirmed.

Australian authorities officially recognizedextinction of the first mammal species due to global climate change. It is a reef mosaic-tailed rat (Melomys rubicola). The announcement of this is contained in a new report, in which the Australian Government also reported on increased measures to protect endangered species. The first report about the possible complete extinction of this mammal species appeared moreContinue Reading

MIT artificial intelligence learned how to train neural networks faster than ever

In an attempt to "democratize AI" scientistsMassachusetts Institute of Technology found a way to use artificial intelligence for much more efficient learning of machine learning systems — that is, neural networks. They hope that the new algorithm, which will save time and money, will allow resource-limited researchers and companies to automate the design of neural networks. In other words, by reducing time and cost, they couldContinue Reading

Exploration of caves on Earth with the help of flying drones can simplify the colonization of Mars

According to one of the previously voiced concepts,the first colonists of Mars may not have to build bases from scratch. For this, there is a better idea - to take advantage of what the local alien nature has already created. And she created, as it turned out, extensive extended caves that were formed by so-called lava tubes. Their use as a permanent habitat would protectContinue Reading

Created a computer based on DNA, which finally can be reprogrammed

It is believed that DNA will save us from computers. Thanks to advances in the replacement of silicon transistors, DNA-based computers promise to provide us with massive parallel computational architectures that are currently impossible. But here's the catch: the molecular chips that were created until today did not have any flexibility at all. Today, using DNA for calculations is somethingContinue Reading

Why is there more matter than antimatter in the universe?

Why do we exist? This is perhaps the deepest question that may seem completely beyond the scope of elementary particle physics. But our new experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider brought us closer to the answer. To understand why we exist, we must first go 13.8 billion years ago, in the time of the Big Bang. This event produced an equal amount of substance fromContinue Reading

NASA wants to explore another asteroid using a new automatic probe

NASA Aerospace Agency reviewsthe ability to launch an automatic probe to explore another large asteroid of the solar system - Pallas. According to the portal Space.com, the decision to send the vehicle to an object whose orbit runs approximately 2.4 times as far from the Sun as the Earth can be made by mid-April. If the mission, which received the preliminary name "Athena" is approved,Continue Reading
