NASA finally found evidence of the universe's earliest molecule

NASA uses its Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) to detect the primordial molecule. The scientists found it in NGC 7027, a planetary nebula (a remnant of a Sun-like star) located 3,000 light-years away. The discovery proves that helium hydride can exist in space, and it confirms theories about the chemistry of the early universe and its evolution. The findings …

Scientists developed a CRISPR tool that removes longer pieces of DNA

This new technique uses CRISPR-Cas3, while most of the work we've seen so far has been done with CRISPR-Cas9. The tool uses a riboprotein complex known as Cascade to target it, and an enzyme called Cas3 to break down the DNA. This allows it to move across several ten-kilobase DNA segments, breaking up genetic material. This would allow scientists to …

An interstellar meteor could hit Earth and its effects are fascinating

A recent study by two Harvard researchers shows that five years ago, the cosmos had already dropped the first such distant visitor on our doorstep when a small meteorite near Papua New Guinea in the South Pacific fell to Earth. According to her research, this 1.5-foot-wide object was most likely from another solar system. Think about it: An object that …
