A Virginia court on Monday found a hospital in the state in contempt of court for failing to comply with previous orders to provide prescribed Ivermectin to a COVID-19 patient. The court ruled that if the Fauquier Health hospital, in Warrenton, failed to provide the dose by 9 p.m.


NASA Craft 'Touches' Sun for 1st Time, Dives Into Atmosphere Science & Medicine News · Dec 22, 2021 by USNews.com

By MARCIA DUNN, AP Aerospace Writer CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - A NASA spacecraft has officially "touched" the sun, plunging through the unexplored solar atmosphere known as the corona. Scientists announced the news Tuesday during a meeting of the American Geophysical Union.


Potentially Hazardous Asteroid Nereus Which Flew Past Earth Could Be Mined for Precious Metals Worth Billions Science & Medicine News · Dec 13, 2021 by New York Weekly Times

Space mining is an idea that began taking hold at the turn of the century, and 10 years ago, it was passionately discussed. Many argued that space mining could revolutionise the commercial space economy by employing robots and private astronauts to explore and mine near-Earth asteroids (NEAs) for precious metals and even rare earth metals.


Physicists Discover a Remarkable New Type of Sound Wave Science & Medicine News · Dec 13, 2021 by SciTechDaily

Can you imagine sound travels in the same way as light does? A research team at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) discovered a new type of sound wave: the airborne sound wave vibrates transversely and carries both spin and orbital angular momentum like light does. The findings shattered scientist


Scientists Mapped Every Large Solar Plant on the Planet Using Satellites and Machine Learning

An astonishing 82 percent decrease in the cost of solar photovoltaic (PV) energy since 2010 has given the world a fighting chance to build a zero-emissions energy system which might be less costly than the fossil-fueled system it replaces.

Bottom-up fabrication of a proteasome-nanopore that unravels and processes single proteins Science & Medicine Blogs · Dec 11, 2021 by Nature Chemistry

An integrated multiprotein nanopore has been fabricated using components from all three domains of life. This molecular machine opens the door to two approaches in single-molecule protein analysis, in which selected substrate proteins are unfolded, fed to into the proteasomal chamber and then processed either as fragmented peptides or intact polypeptides.


Astronomers Discover Massive Planet 10 Times Bigger Than Jupiter Science & Medicine Blogs · Dec 11, 2021 by www.theepochtimes.com

A group of astronomers has discovered one of the biggest planets ever found orbiting a massive and extremely hot two-star system, despite previously believing that such an environment was too inhospitable for a planet to form in. The planet was discovered by Markus Janson, a professor of astronomy at Stockholm University, and colleagues, according to research published Wednesday in the science journal Nature.


Physicists Transform Pure Energy into Matter and Antimatter Science & Medicine News · Dec 11, 2021 by Labroots

A new study published in Physical Review Letters presents evidence for the creation of matter and antimatter from energy, specifically light particles (photons). In doing so, it offers a splendidly concrete example of the world's most famous equation: E=mc2. The equation, derived by Einstein, dictates how energy (E) is equivalent to mass (m) times the speed of light (c) squared.


Scientists 3D-Print Programmable Living Structures With New Microbial Ink Science & Medicine News · Nov 30, 2021 by Edd Gent

Our mastery of biology has improved dramatically in recent decades , but we are still largely restricted to n ature's repertoire of forms. That could be about to change with the creation of a living ink made out of microbes that can be printed into a variety of 3D shapes.

The Mystery behind the 18 Giant Skeletons found in the USA

18 Strange Skeletons Found in Wisconsin Nine-foot Skeletons with Huge Heads and Strange Facial Features Shocked Scientists When They Were Uncovered 107 Year Ago Scientists are remaining stubbornly silent about a lost race of giants found in burial mounds near Lake Delavan, Wisconsin, in May 1912.

Scientists discover animal that doesn't need oxygen to live Science & Medicine Blogs · Nov 14, 2021 by Big Think

In the time it takes you to read this article, you're likely to breathe a few dozen times. Some animals don't breathe as often, and they don't require nearly as much oxygen. The Loggerhead sea turtle, for example, can take one breath and stay underwater for about 10 hours.


What is the Nuclear EMC effect? Scientists shed light on a physics-defying mystery Science & Medicine Blogs · Nov 13, 2021 by Inverse

Nuclear science is many things: it's powerful, it's potentially dangerous, and it's ultimately still not totally understood by scientists - at least when it comes to its constituent parts. Controlling the splitting of atoms to fuel a nuclear reaction is old hat these days, but while scientists understand how these reactions take place what they don't understand completely is something much more fundamental: the behavior of protons and neutrons.


Mysterious radio waves are radiating from an unknown object at the heart of the Milky Way, astronomers say Science & Medicine Blogs · Nov 13, 2021 by Business Insider

Astronomers detected mysterious radio waves from the center of the galaxy that vary dramatically and seem to shut off at random. The waves' origin is unknown, so they hint at the existence of a new type of celestial object. The signal doesn't look like the kind that comes from stars, planets, or even dead stars.


Scientists use olive oil to discover new universal physics law Science & Medicine Blogs · Nov 13, 2021 by Big Think

The dressing in your salad might redefine science if you look carefully enough. Researchers in the Netherlands used a drop of olive oil to discover a new universal law of phase transitions. The research was carried out by the Interacting Photons group of the AMOLF institute, which focuses on fundamental physics.


Discovery of metal-breathing bacteria can change electronics

Researchers discovered an unusual property of a bacteria that can "breathe" in some metal and sulfur compounds and create materials that can improve electronics, energy storage, and medical devices. Specifically, the anaerobic Shewanella oneidensis bacterium can produce molybdenum disulfide, a material that can transfer electronics as well as graphene, explains the press release from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, whose team of engineers carried out the research.

CT scans of shark intestines find Nikola Tesla's one-way valve Science & Medicine Blogs · Oct 16, 2021 by Big Think

Considering how much sharks are feared by humans, it is a bit of a surprise that scientists don't know much about the predators. For example, until recently, sharks were thought to be solitary creatures searching the seas for food on their own. Now it appears that some sharks are quite social.


SARS-CoV-2 Spike Impairs DNA Damage Repair and Inhibits V(D)J Recombination In Vitro Science & Medicine Blogs · Oct 13, 2021 by MDPI

Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has led to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, severely affecting public health and the global economy. Adaptive immunity plays a crucial role in fighting against SARS-CoV-2 infection and directly influences the clinical outcomes of patients.


Here's the most complete map of black holes ever created Science & Medicine Blogs · Jul 29, 2021 by Jak Connor - TweakTown

A German-made space telescope, eROSITA, has collected enough data that astronomers have pieced together the most detailed map of black holes. Published Wed, Jul 28 2021 5:32 AM CDT In less than two years, a German-made space telescope has managed to discover more than 3 million " new" objects.


Deadly Spider Venom Could Repair Hearts and May Save Heart Attack Victims Science & Medicine Blogs · Jul 18, 2021 by Loukia Papadopoulos - Interesting Engineering

Spider venom may be deadly, but it comes with some advantages. In the past, research has found that venom could alleviate pain without causing any adverse side effects. Now, new research out of Australia's University of Queensland is indicating that the venom of the Fraser Island (K'gari) funnel-web spider can help prevent damage caused by a heart attack and even extend the life of donor hearts.
