Scientists reveal the most distant galaxy we’ve ever found: ScienceAlert

The galaxy whose light has traveled nearly 13.5 billion years to reach us has been confirmed to be the oldest galaxy found to date. By studying the galaxy’s oxygen content using the Atacama Large Millimeter/Subarray Array (ALMA), astronomers have precisely dated it to just 367 million years after the Big Bang, a time when the … Read more

Scientists receive a $2.9 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to better understand the genes of IBD in Hispanics

After studying the genetic sequences of more than 100,000 people, researchers across the country set out to uncover the root causes of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis. But those studies have a stark flaw: They are based mostly on genetic data almost exclusively from individuals of European ancestry. Now researchers at … Read more

Scientists say beetroot juice ‘significantly increases muscle strength during exercise’

Forget pre-workout protein shakes: Beetroot juice ‘significantly increases muscle strength during exercise’, scientists say. Scientists in the United Kingdom and the United States tracked muscle strength as participants performed exercises Half of them had been given a nitrate-laced drink before starting the workout The results showed 7 percent higher muscle strength in those who consumed … Read more

How a 3-centimetre glass sphere can help scientists understand space weather

The UCLA researchers reproduced the kind of gravity found on or near stars and other planets inside a 3-centimeter-diameter glass sphere. Credit: John Koulakis Solar flares and other types of space weather can damage spaceflight, telecommunications, and other types of satellites orbiting Earth. But until now, the ability of scientists to look for ways to … Read more

Scientists recycle previously unrecyclable plastic

Recycling is the process of converting waste into new products. This helps conserve natural resources and reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills. It is a simple and effective way to reduce the environmental impact of waste and promote sustainability. PVC, or polyvinyl chloride, is a plastic widely used in the United States and … Read more

One of the most famous nebulae in the universe is changing — and scientists don’t know why

The Butterfly Nebula It changes, and astronomers are at a loss as to why these changes occur. Observations of this planetary nebula show dramatic changes in a butterfly’s wings over just 11 years. “I’ve been comparing Hubble images for years, and I’ve never seen anything quite like it,” said Bruce Palic, professor emeritus of astronomy … Read more
