Scientists Make Monkey Brains Larger With Injection Of Human Brain Cells

(John Vibes) In an alarming experiment, researchers from Japan and Germany teamed up to see if they could increase the size of a monkey’s brain by injecting it with a specific human brain gene that directs stem cells. Scientists know the gene as ARHGAP11B. In their experiments, they were able to successfully increase the size of monkey brains with this method.

Scientists Can Now Build Renewable Fuel Cells From Spinach

(Mayukh Saha) In a major step for green tech, scientists have taken regular grocery store spinach and turned it into the catalyst for a renewable and efficient fuel cell! Scientists have been working with spinach in various capacities, trying to harness its powers like Popeye. This proof-of-concept renewable fuel cell is the latest achievement.

Astonishing Images Of Galaxies, Stars & Supernova Remnants Released By NASA

(Mayukh Saha) NASA has an X-ray observatory named after the Nobel Prize-winning astrophysicist Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar. The Chandra X-ray telescope has consistently delivered some of the most astonishing astronomical discoveries. Chandra X-ray was the one that delivered the first light images of the remnants of the Cassiopeia A supernova. In 2000, some high school students accessed the data gathered from this telescope to find a neutron star inside the remnants of the IC 443 supernova too.
