In cases where immune therapy works, it could allow mass production of treatment.
In addition to fighting off invaders that arrive from outside the body, the immune system is also able to identify cells that have gone bad inside the body. Even though cancer cells look a lot like normal ones, immune cells can often tell [...]
Eradicating Our Dopamine Addiction
We are becoming dopamine addicts and it’s making us less productive and less focused.
You check your email once, you’ve got ten new ones. Nice! You get a little rush. You check it again ten minutes later, you’ve got three more, you check again five minutes later…nothing new. You plan to check it [...]Read This Post
Vincent Callebaut, visionary behind the Lilypad and Dragonfly, has created a whale-shaped floating garden designed to drift through the world’s rivers while purifying their waters. The Physalia is a self-sufficient ecosystem that generates all the power it needs from the sun and works to reduce water pollution through bio-filtration.
Callebaut’s designs are certainly fantastical, but it’s a treat to ponder them and [...]Read This Post
Have you ever wondered how much of love is about the heart — and how much is controlled by our hormones? Or maybe you question whether love at first sight really exists… or secretly believe it’s something that Hollywood just conjured up to sell movie tickets. And what about chemistry — can you create it, [...]Read This Post
A team of scientists in Zurich, Switzerland, have developed a method of acoustic levitation that allows them to float objects next to each other and bring them into contact.
Using ultrasonic waves – that is, sound waves whose frequency is too high for humans to hear – scientists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in [...]Read This Post
With gas prices soaring, car emissions straining the environment and people spending more time in traffic instead of the great outdoors, a Durham company has developed a solution. It’s called the ELF. Stephanie Bourland takes us to Organic Transit where they’re producing solar electric assisted bikes. These vehicles combine the ease of a car with [...]Read This Post
Researchers at NASA’s Texas-based Johnson Space Center are trying to prove that it is possible to travel faster than the speed of light, and hope to one day build an engine that resembles the fictional Starship Enterprise.
NASA physicist and engineer Dr. Harold G. White, 43, believes it is possible to bend the rules of time [...]
Sol-X (solar system express) made news in the Huffington Post & Gizmag earlier this spring for their plans to research and develop the world’s first iron man suit in order to commercialize space diving. They have now launched a crowd-funding project for an open-source electronics prototyping platform called the GDB (gravity development board).Read This Post
Increasingly science agrees with the poetry of direct human experience: we are more than the atoms and molecules that make up our bodies, but beings of light as well. Biophotons are emitted by the human body, can be released through mental intention, and may modulate fundamental processes within cell-to-cell communication and DNA.
Nothing is more amazing [...]
