Year in space put US astronaut's immune system on high alert compared to his Earth-bound twin – Daily Mail

Year in space put US astronaut's immune system on high alert compared to his Earth-bound twin – Daily Mail

Nearly a year in space put astronaut Scott Kelly’s immune system on high alert and changed the activity of some of his genes compared to his Earth-bound identical twin, researchers said Friday. Scientists don’t know if the changes were good or bad but results from a unique NASA twins study are raising new questions for […]

Hunters in 24 US states warned of ‘zombie deer’ disease – BGR

Deer hunting is a big deal in many U.S. states, and surveys suggest that around 10 million hunters participate in the activity regularly. As any hunter will tell you, nabbing a deer isn’t always the easiest of tasks, but a growing risk of disease is making things even more difficult for sportsmen even after they’ve […]

New drug raises hopes of reversing memory loss in old age – The Guardian

An experimental drug that bolsters ailing brain cells has raised hopes of a treatment for memory loss, poor decision making and other mental impairments that often strike in old age. The drug could be taken as a daily pill by over-55s if clinical trials, which are expected to start within two years, show that the […]

RIP NASA’s Opportunity rover. Here’s what it saw during its 14 years on Mars – Vox.com

Eight months ago, NASA lost contact with the Opportunity rover on Mars, which had been exploring the planet’s surface since 2004. The solar-powered rover got trapped in a massive dust storm, which blotted out the sun, its source of energy. And after the storm cleared, Opportunity — affectionately called “Oppy” — didn’t “wake” back up. […]

Principle and experimental set-up. a, Schematic representation of energy exchange between an unbiased photodiode and a planar surface located in the far-field of the photodiode. b, Schematic description of photonic refrigeration in the near-field. Simultaneous enhancement of photon transport from tunnelling of evanescent waves and suppression of luminescence from a reverse-biased photodiode lead to cooling. […]
