Could covid lead to a lifetime of autoimmune disease?
US Dragon crewship launches to space station
When Aaron Ring began testing blood samples collected from covid-19 patients who had come through Yale–New Haven Hospital last March and April, he expected to see a type of immune cell known as an autoantibody in at least some of them. These are antibodies that have gone rogue and started attacking the body’s own tissue;…
UK scientists find evidence of human-to-cat Covid transmission
Four astronauts leave Florida in a Dragon capsule bound for the International Space Station.
3D motion tracking system could streamline vision for autonomous tech
Researchers in Glasgow find two cases where cats were infected by owners with coronavirus symptomsCoronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageTwo cases of human-to-cat transmission of Covid-19 have been identified by researchers. Scientists from the University of Glasgow found the cases of Sars-CoV-2 transmission as part of a screening programme of the feline population in the...
Climate-friendly microbes chomp dead plants without releasing heat-trapping methane
A new real-time, 3D motion tracking system developed at the University of Michigan combines transparent light detectors with advanced neural network methods to create a system that could one day replace LiDAR and cameras in autonomous technologies.
With new optical device, engineers can fine tune the color of light
The tree of life just got a little bigger: A team of scientists from the U.S. and China has identified an entirely new group of microbes quietly living in hot springs, geothermal systems and hydrothermal sediments around the world. The microbes appear to be playing an important role in the global carbon cycle by helping break down decaying plants without producing the greenhouse gas methane.
Among the first lessons any grade school science student learns is that white light is not white at all, but rather a composite of many photons, those little droplets of energy that make up light, from every color of the rainbow—red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.
