A team of scientists from Imperial College London have proposed a laser model that can could heat materials to temperatures hotter than the center of the Sun in just 20 quadrillionths of a second. That’s 10 million degrees Celsius almost instantaneously.

Amun 3554 is a little more than a mile wide and it’s one of the smallest M-class (metal-bearing) asteroids yet discovered. Unless it ever decides to smash into us — a theoretical possibility, but extremely unlikely over the next few centuries — it will continue orbiting the sun, unknown and unmolested.
Engineers in Australia have have proven, with the highest score ever achieved, that a quantum version of computer code can be written, and manipulated, using two quantum bits in a silicon microchip. The advance removes lingering doubts that such operations can be made reliably enough to allow powerful quantum computers to become a reality.
Scientists in France were able to restore the youth of cells taken from people 100 years of age and older. They reprogrammed them to stem cells stage, demonstrating that aging is in fact reversible.
Human life expectancy could start creeping up toward the triple digits, according to two leading scientists at the edge of the medical revolution.
A way to authenticate or identify any object by generating an unbreakable ID based on atoms has been discovered by scientists at Lancaster University.
Scientists have discovered matter and antimatter appear to be perfect mirror images of each other as far as anyone can see, foiling hope of solving the mystery as to why there is far more matter than antimatter in the universe.
New research has found that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. The finding means the textbooks will have to be rewritten.
Leukocyte (white blood cell) telomere length in study participants up to 115 years of age. Statistical regression lines belonging to these groups are indicated by the same color as the data. (credit: Yasumichi Arai et al./EBioMedicine) According scientists at Newcastle University’s Institute for Ageing in the U.K. and Keio University School of Medicine, they say they have cracked […]
Scientists first grew mini-hearts in a lab. Then they 3D printed skin. Now scientists have taken “body on a chip” to a whole new level.
