Scientists have figured out how to store electricity in ‘paper’ Hope they learn how to mass produce this.
Here’s the latest developments in Space Flight Technology:
The latest developments in Physics:
Physicists confirm thermodynamic irreversibility in a quantum system ,which brings quantum computers closer to reality
Here’s what happened in health sciences this week:
Human editing was the main health science news:Should We Be Editing Human DNA?
Human gene editing gets green light but not on “germline” cells that transmit DNA to future generations.
This sounds like the premise of a good sci-fi/murder mystery: Could hackers break my heart via my pacemaker?
