Analyzing data from the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, researchers find hints of dark matter. The scientists looked to spot a correlation between gravitational lensing and gamma rays. Future release of data can pinpoint whether the dark matter is really responsible for observed effects. By comparing data derived from gravitational lensing and gamma ray observations by the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope , a study showed that certain regions of the sky emit more gamma rays.

We're in the middle, or thereabouts, of the universe's Stelliferous era. If you think there's a lot going on out there now, the first era's drama makes things these days look pretty calm. Scientists attempt to understand the past and present by bringing together the last couple of centuries' major schools of thought. If you're fortunate enough to get yourself beneath a clear sky in a dark place on a moonless night, a gorgeous space-scape of stars waits.

Human memory relies on the coordination of multiple brain regions, each of which is subject to demise as we age. A variety of games and actionable methods can help keep our memory strong. Learning new skills is an important component of keeping our memory sharp into our later years. Your mind is your most important asset, and it's vital that you keep it sharp well into the future.

When an egg cell of almost any sexually reproducing species is fertilized, it sets off a series of waves that ripple across the egg's surface. These waves are produced by billions of activated proteins that surge through the egg's membrane like streams of tiny burrowing sentinels, signaling the egg to start dividing, folding, and dividing again, to form the first cellular seeds of an organism. Now MIT scientists have taken a detailed look at the pattern of these waves, produced on the surface of starfish eggs.

Director of the Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Las Vegas, Nevada (Stephen M. Miller) gives insight into how the COVID-19 pandemic impacts American economies. Calling it a "trade-off between public health and economic health", Miller explains how the social distancing measures put in place will undoubtedly cause economic times but are a necessary measure to avoid a total crash of economies due to more people falling sick with the virus. The SIR model (a guide to assessing how much of the population is actively infected) shows us what could happen if the active cases of infection goes above 10% of the population. COVID-19 and the American economy, according to economic research Professor Stephen M. Miller. How h.

Differences in symptoms exist between a cold, the flue and coronavirus. The CDC issued specific recommendations about what to do if you're sick and when to get tested. Calling the doctor is important if you feel sick or have questions. How do you know you have coronavirus? With so much misinformation flying around, it's important to understand the differences in the symptoms between Covid-19 (the infamous coronavirus), the regular flue and a cold.

A new study based at Salk Institute has discovered the cellular mechanisms behind calorie restriction. Rats on a higher-calorie diet experienced more inflammation and immune problems than rats that ate less. This research is especially relevant right now, as immunodeficient patients are at high risk of complications from COVID-19. Finding kale and quinoa has never been easier than right now.

A new study tested how long coronavirus stays infectious on surfaces like plastic, cardboard and metal as well as air. The results show that the virus can live from hours in air to several days on steel. The research underscores the importance of cleaning household and hospital areas and objects. A new study provided some valuable information about how long coronavirus survives on different surfaces, showing that it stays alive for quite a long time on some common materials.

Nuclear fusion is the process of fusing atomic nuclei, which can unleash vast amounts of energy. Nuclear fusion reactors have existed for years, but none of them are able to sustainably produce energy. A new paper describes how permanent magnets can be used on stellarators to control the flow of super-hot plasma. The promise of nuclear fusion generators is tantalizing: Use the same atomic process that powers our Sun to produce virtually unlimited amounts of emissions-free energy. But while fusion reactors have been around since the 1950s, scientists haven't been able to create designs that can produce energy in a sustainable manner.

A new study by researchers from the University of Plymouth estimates that it could be up to 1,300 years before LEGO pieces lost to the sea disintegrate. Researchers collected fifty LEGO pieces washed up on beaches in southwest England and compared them to archived blocks in their original condition. The classic children's toy is made of an incredibly durable material called acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), a rock-solid polymer. Shiploads of tiny LEGO blocks are floating about the Earth's seas, and estimates that it could be up to 1,300 years before the seemingly imperishable plastic toys disintegrate. Research findings. In a study published in Environmental Pollution , researchers from the University of Plymouth collected fifty LEGO pi.

Scientists tested a drug derived of scorpion venom on mice exposed to alcohol during pregnancy. The drug was able to reverse specific developmental damage caused by alcohol and will next be tested on humans. Researchers pinpointed specific molecular mechanisms causing developmental problems. Scorpions, sporting eight legs and a venomous stinger, can be quite dangerous for humans to encounter.

Archaeologists found new clues to the purpose of the bone circles in Russia and Ukraine from the last Ice Age. The previous theories assumed they were used for dwellings. The new finds indicate they were used partially for fuel and had remains of different plants. Researchers have made significant progress in figuring out the purpose of the 70 mysterious circular structures made of mammoth bones.

Last month, was quarantined in Hong Kong after having tested a "weak positive" for the novel coronavirus igniting public worry about the possibility of pets becoming infected. Medical experts are saying that there is no evidence that the virus that causes CONVID-19 can infect pets, which have different cell receptors. One precaution you can take to protect your pets from the pandemic is to pack an emergency "go bag" with supplies your pet may need in the case of a quarantine. Here's one less coronavirus worry: Your pets are likely safe from the novel virus according to medical experts. Concerns that domestic animals could become ill with and spread CONVID-19, which has so far killed at least 8,200 people around the world, were raised last m.

WASP-76b is an extremely hot planet whose cooler side has a surface temperature of 1,500° C. Iron evaporated in the heat of the planet's day side rains down in molten form on the night side. The first time the ESO used their new ESPRESSO instrument, it revealed WASP-76b's intense climate. Let's imagine you're vacationing on WASP-76b, a gas-giant exoplanet in the constellation Pisces, some 640 light-years away from where you're reading this.

By 2050, the number of Americans over age 65 with Alzheimer's is expected to rise from 5.8 to 13.8 million. A new report from the Alzheimer's Association highlights how the already-stressed U.S. healthcare system is not prepared to meet this surge. There's currently no cure for Alzheimer's, which is a degenerative and potentially deadly form of dementia. A forecasts a looming health-care problem: The number of Americans with Alzheimer's disease is expected to double by 2050, and unless things change, there will be a severe shortage of health-care professionals able to care for these dementia patients. There are two key factors driving the problem: an aging U.S. population and a lack of health-care professionals trained to care for Alzheimer.
