Experimental research for fusion produced energy has promising results in Germany

“We are more than satisfied with the results of the first experimental campaign”, states Project Head Professor Thomas Klinger described results of research for a clean new energy. Wendelstein 7-X is the world’s largest fusion device of the stellarator type (nuclear fusion reactor) built in Greifswald, Germany, by the Max Planck Institute of Plasma Physics (IPP), conceived by physicist Lyman Spitzer.

A fifth force of the nature was possibly discovered

A fifth force of nature was possibly discovered. “If true, it’s revolutionary,” said Jonathan Feng, professor of physics & astronomy. This potential fifth force might be joined to the electromagnetic and strong and weak nuclear forces as “manifestations of one grander, more fundamental force.” Scientists of University of California, Irvine (UCI) expanded a mid-2015 study by experimental nuclear physicists at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences who were searching for “dark photons.”

The mystery around human fossil Lucy’s death

The human ancestor called Lucy, a member of Australopithecus afarensis, an early human species that lived in Africa between about 4 million and 3 million years ago, which was recovered in Ethiopia, is the older human fossil we know. Scientists are even more curious and tried to identify how Lucy was dead. The latest hypothesis sustains it was a tree climbing that might have led to her demise.

The first approval for use of public funding for human-genome editing

The world's first officially approval for use of public funding for human-genome editing was given Monday by Britain's Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority to The Francis Crick Institute's Kathy Niakan. The Francis Crick Institute is a unique partnership between the Medical Research Council (MRC), Cancer Research UK, the Wellcome Trust, UCL (University College London), Imperial College London and King's College London.
