Mystery Object Temporarily Orbiting Earth is 54-Year-Old Rocket, Not Asteroid, Says NASA

Cape Canaveral, December 3: A mysterious object temporarily orbiting Earth is a 54-year-old rocket, not an asteroid after all, astronomers confirmed Wednesday. Observations by a telescope in Hawaii clinched its identity, according to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. The object was classified as an asteroid after its discovery in September. But NASA’s top […]

Unraveling a mystery surrounding embryonic cells

Last year, researchers at the University of California, Riverside, identified the early origins of neural crest cells — embryonic cells in vertebrates that travel throughout the body and generate many cell types — in chick embryos. Now the researchers have used a human model to figure out when neural crest cells acquire distinctive molecular and functional […]

Sea sponge unravels 700 million-year-old mystery

In a discovery spanning millions of years, scientists have found that humans, and most likely other animals, share important genetic mechanisms with a prehistoric Great Barrier Reef sea sponge. The University of Queensland’s Professor Bernie Degnan said some elements of the human genome – an organism’s complete set of DNA – functioned in the same way as […]

Solving a current mystery | Technology Org

Consumer demand has driven engineers to design batteries that are more compact while at the same time maintaining, or even improving, their capacity. On paper, it seems there is plenty of room to increase battery capacity without increasing the charging current density to the critical point — called the limiting current density — beyond which […]
