Universe as a Hologram

In 1997, the theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena proposed a bold model of the universe in which gravity, thin infinitesimal vibrating strings could be reinterpreted in terms of well-established physic’s. The mathematically complex world of chains, which exist in nine spatial dimensions plus one time, could just be a hologram: the real action unfold over a simpler, flatter cosmos where there is no gravity.

Scientists snap picture of immune system

Scientists snap picture of immune system

Powerful enough to capture a single molecule microscope has taken the clearest picture yet of the immune system in action.

The technique, called super-resolution single-molecule fluorescence microscopy, recently helped scientists at the University of Manchester in England track natural killer (NK) cells, which help destroy cancer and viruses.

Stomatch Biological Clock

Certain nerves in the stomach act as a kind of biological clock, which may help dampen appetite at night and allow heartier eating during the day, researchers have found.

The results may help shed some light on why shift workers are at high risk of conditions like obesity and diabetes, they say.

Getting enough vitamin D may not just be good for your bone health; it may keep your brain healthy as well. The researchers also found that the rats who were vitamin D deficient had significantly higher levels of several other brain proteins, which potentially contributed to significant nitrosative stress in the brain.

DNA Finally Photographed!

DNA is finally photographed, after all these years they are able to take a picture of the building blocks of life.

Fifty-nine years after James Watson and Francis Crick deduced the double-helix structure of DNA, a scientist has captured the first direct photograph of the twisted ladder that props up life. Enzo Di Fabrizio, a physics professor at Magna Graecia University in Catanzaro, Italy, snapped the picture using an electron microscope.
