    Hubble Finds Phantom Imprint in Space Revealing Black Hole Roaming Our Milky Way Galaxy

    Lead Image: This is an illustration of a close-up look at a black hole drifting through our Milky Way galaxy. The black hole is the crushed remnant of a massive star that exploded as a supernova. The surviving core is several times the mass of our Sun. The black hole traps light due to its intense gravitational field. The black hole distorts the space around it, which warps images of background stars lined up almost directly behind it. This gravitational “lensing” effect offers the only telltale evidence for the existence of lone black holes wandering our galaxy, which may be…

    Research Shows That Robotic Surgery Is Safer and Improves Patient Recovery Time by 20%

    Lead Image: Research from the University College London and the University of Sheffield has shown that robot-assisted surgery for bladder cancer removal and repair allows patients to recover much faster and spend considerably less time in the hospital. A new study has found that robotic surgery is less dangerous and has a faster recovery period for patients Robotic surgery, also known as robot-assisted surgery, enables surgeons to conduct a variety of complicated operations with more precision, flexibility, and control than traditional approaches allow. Robotic surgery is often associated with minimally invasive surgery, which involves procedures carried out through small incisions.…

    Too Tall? Too Short? Height May Be Risk Factor for Multiple Health Conditions

    Lead Image: Height may be an unrecognized but biologically important and unchangeable risk factor for several common health conditions, according to an MVP study. Data shows that in the United States the average height is 5 feet 4 inches (163 centimeters) for women and 5 feet 9 inches (175 centimeters) for men. While those are the averages, the range is pretty broad with many people being quite a bit taller or shorter than average. It is obvious that either being shorter or taller than average has its set of benefits and drawbacks. For example, the short person may not be…

    The Chemistry of the Sun: Resolving a Decade-Long Controversy About the Composition of Our Star

    Lead Image: Astronomers have finally resolved the conflict between the internal structure of the Sun as determined from solar oscillations and the structure derived from the fundamental theory of stellar evolution. New calculations of Solar spectrum resolve decade-long controversy about the composition of our star. Although our sun is far closer than any other star in the universe, it still has its mysteries. After all, it is still 93 million miles (150 million kilometers) from Earth and we have just a narrow perspective. Plus its surface is blistering hot, its atmosphere even hotter, and its constantly blasting out particles at…

    Stanford Scientists Unlock Mysteries of Plant Growth and Health

    Lead Image: A study finds that algal genes provide answers to questions concerning plant growth and health. The discovery will help develop heat-tolerant crops and improve algal biofuel production Plants, like all other known organisms, utilize DNA to pass on traits. Animal genetics often focuses on parentage and lineage, but this can can be challenging in plant genetics since plants can be self-fertile, unlike most animals. Many plants have unique genetic abilities that make speciation easier, such as being well suited to polyploidy. Plants are special in that they can synthesize energy-dense carbohydrates via photosynthesis, which is accomplished through the…
