NASA Rocketed Human Sperm Into Space

NASA Rocketed Human Sperm Into Space

NASA has sent samples of human sperm to the International Space Station to study how fertilization could happen in space. The mission, called Micro-11, rocketed frozen human sperm — and bull sperm for a comparison — to the space station early this month. The aim? NASA wants to know: “Do sperm squirm the same in space?” Lack of gravity affects human […]

Mountain Erosion Apparently Increases, Not Reduces, Carbon Dioxide In Atmosphere

Mountain Erosion Apparently Increases, Not Reduces, Carbon Dioxide In Atmosphere

Mountain erosion, long believed to be reducing the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, is apparently increasing it, though the source is not geological. Does the discovery have any effect on the phenomenon of climate change?  ( Fayez Nureldine | AFP | Getty Images ) Mountain erosion, a process long thought to be reducing carbon dioxide […]

Fossil study identifies 200 million-year-old insect colour

Washington: An international team led by Chinese scientists has revealed the wing colour of a 200 million-year-old insect via fossil scales. The study, published on Wednesday in the journal Science Advances, found that tiny photonic structures of lepidopterans could produce metallic bronze to golden colour appearances in the insect wings, reports Xinhua. Structural colours in […]
