Researchers have identified a young star with four Jupiter and Saturn-sized planets in the most extreme range of orbits yet observed around it, the first time that so many massive planets have been detected in such a young system — raising interesting questions about how such a system might have formed.Read More...
Biomed engineers have demonstrated that, by injecting an artificial protein made from a solution of ordered and disordered segments, a solid scaffold forms in response to body heat, and in a few weeks seamlessly integrates into tissue — allowing them precise control of materials in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
Scientists have reported the first ever discovery of a moon orbiting around an ‘exoplanet’ – a planet that exists outside of the Earth’s solar system.
There’s something mysterious coming up from the frozen ground in Antarctica, and it could break physics as we know it.
