Scientists warn long-frozen 'zombie virus' is 'public health threat' amid thaw

Scientists warn long-frozen ‘zombie virus’ is ‘public health threat’ amid thaw

They’re potentially opening Pandora’s pox. French scientists have raised fears of a new pandemic after reviving a “zombie virus” that had been trapped under a frozen lake in Russia for a record 50,000 years. “The situation would be much more dire in the case of plant, animal or human diseases caused by the resurgence of …

We may have detected new organic compounds in Martian rocks

We may have detected new organic compounds in Martian rocks

The Perseverance rover may have just found evidence of organic compounds in the rocks of Jezero Crater. Previous studies have found evidence of organic compounds on Mars before. The Curiosity Rover and the Mars-Express the orbiter has provided proof of this, as have the data from Perseverance. None of this necessarily involves any kind of …

Completing Einstein’s Theories – A Breakthrough in Particle Physics

More than a century after his first theory, scientists have completed Einstein’s homework on special relativity in electromagnetism. Osaka University researchers show relativistic contraction of an electric field produced by fast-moving charged particles, as predicted by Einstein’s theory, which may help improve radiation and physics research particles. More than a century ago, one of the …
