The Plan to Turn Scrapped Rockets Into Space Stations

In early October, a dead Soviet satellite and the abandoned upper stage of a Chinese rocket narrowly avoided a collision in low Earth orbit. If the objects had crashed, the impact would have blown them to bits and created thousands of new pieces of dangerous space debris.

Gene switch underlying tomato fruit size and domestication

225 views Author: newseditor Tomato breeding has resulted in cultivars with increased fruit size relative to the wild ancestor Solanum pimpinellifolium. Mutations in the fasciated ( fas) and locule number ( lc) genes have been shown to underpin extreme fruit size in cultivated tomatoes-a feature largely determined by the number of seed compartments in mature fruits.

New DNA origami motor breaks speed record for nano machines

March 3, 2020 by Alison M. Weeks, Emory University Through a technique known as DNA origami, scientists have created the fastest, most persistent DNA nano motor yet. Angewandte Chemie published the findings, which provide a blueprint for how to optimize the design of motors at the nanoscale-hundreds of times smaller than the typical human cell.

Targeting herpes using CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing

266 views Author: newseditor In a first, scientists use gene editing to disrupt both latent and active herpes virus in human cells The herpes simplex virus, commonly known as the cold sore virus, is a devious microbe. It enters the body through regions lined with mucous membranes-mouth, nose and genitals-but quickly establishes lifelong viral hideouts inside nerve cells.
