‘Diamond-age’ of power generation as nuclear batteries developed

Cea mai spectaculoasă formă de generare a curentului electric: într-un diamant artificial plasat în apropierea unei surse de radiații. De exemplu în apropierea unor reziduuri radioactive, cu care oricum nu avem ce face…

New technology has been developed that uses nuclear waste to generate electricity in a nuclear-powered battery. A team of physicists and chemists from the University of Bristol have grown a man-made diamond that, when placed in a radioactive field, is able to generate a small electrical current.

Scientists Have Identified an Antibody That Neutralises 98% of HIV Strains

Wow!

Scientists have discovered an antibody produced by an HIV-positive patient that neutralises 98 percent of all HIV strains tested – including most of the strains that are resistant to other antibodies of the same class.

Scientists make ‘holy grail’ breakthrough in DNA editing that could cure incurable diseases

„We now have a technology that allows us to modify the DNA of non-dividing cells, to fix broken genes in the brain, heart and liver.”

Scientists have discovered a new way to edit DNA that could fix “broken genes” in the brain, cure previously incurable diseases and potentially even extend the human lifespan. The breakthrough – described as a “holy grail” of genetics – was used to partially restore the sight of rats blinded by a co…
