MRI, AI may detect early signs of tumour cell death after novel therapy

According to new research led by Massachusetts General Hospital, it has been found that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to detect early signs of tumour cell death in response to novel virus-based cancer therapy. This research has been published in the ‘Nature Biomedical Engineering Journal’. Recently, a […]

Scientists find pathway allowing cancer to bypass oncology treatments

The City of Hope researchers have identified a pathway that explained how mutated cancer cells can continue to replicate and become resistant to oncology therapies. The study has been published in the ‘Science Journal’. Using whole-genome sequencing technology, the scientists discovered a new mechanism for how genetically defective cells mutated to survive stressful situations, […]

Indian astronomers discover a new exoplanet and rare stars hotter than Sun

Indian astronomers have added another feather to their cap as they have recently made two new discoveries — an exoplanet 1.4x the size of Jupiter and a rare class of radio stars hotter than the Sun. The first discovery was made by a team from Ahembdabad’s Physical Research Laboratory (PRL) recently. The team discovered an exoplanet 1.4 […]

SpaceX to conduct ‘humanity’s first planetary defence test’ to redirect asteroid

SpaceX is planning to conduct humanity’s first planetary defence test to redirect an asteroid through Falcon 9’s launch of NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission on Tuesday (local time). “DART is humanity’s first planetary defence test mission to see if intentionally crashing a spacecraft into an asteroid is an effective way to change its course, should […]

SpaceX mission led by Indian-origin astronaut docks with International Space Station

A new SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule carrying four astronauts including Indian origin Raja Chari to the International Space Station (ISS) as part of the company’s Crew-3 mission has docked successfully at the orbiting lab on Thursday, the company said. NASA astronauts Chari, Tom Marshburn, Kayla Barron, and ESA astronaut Matthias Maurer arrived at the International Space Station at 6:32 pm […]

Researchers recreate deep-Earth conditions to see how iron copes with extreme stress

New observations of the atomic structure of iron reveal it undergoes ‘twinning’ under extreme stress and pressure. The results appear in Physical Review Letters, where they have been highlighted as an Editor’s Suggestion. Far below you lies a sphere of solid iron and nickel about as wide as the broadest part of Texas: the Earth’s inner core. […]

PIO Raja Chari led NASA’s SpaceX Crew-3 astronauts headed to International Space Station

NASA’s spacex”>SpaceX Crew-3 astronaut team led by PIO (Person of India Origin) Raja Chari are in orbit following their launch to the space-station”>International Space Station on the third commercial crew rotation mission aboard the microgravity laboratory. The international crew of astronauts lifted off at 9:03 pm EST Wednesday from Launch Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center […]

Scientists make breakthrough in understanding how penicillin works

The mechanism which allows beta-lactam antibiotics, including penicillin, to kill MRSA has been revealed for the first time by an international team of researchers led by the University of Sheffield, who discovered that beta-lactam antibiotics kill MRSA (Methicillin-Resistant S. aureus) by creating holes in the cell wall which enlarge as the cell grows, […]
