Massive collision in planetary system Kepler 107 – ScienceDaily

Since 1995, the first extrasolar planet was discovered, nearly 4000 planets have been found around the nearest stars. This allows us to study a wide variety of configurations for these planetary systems. The evolution of the planets orbiting other stars can be primarily influenced by two phenomena: the evaporation of the upper layers of the planet due to the effect …

The Milky Way is Actually Warped

For centuries, astronomers have been studying the Milky Way in order to get a better understanding of its size and structure. And while modern instruments have yielded invaluable observations of our galaxy and others (which have allowed astronomers to gain a general picture of what it looks like), a truly accurate model of our galaxy has been elusive. For example, …

New Spiky Dinosaur Discovered in Patagonia

Sauropods always had size on their side. The largest species, like Supersaurus were so gargantuan that the simple makeup of their muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other tissues would have been quite a task for any predatory to chomp through even with a proffered neck. The fantastic growth rate of these dinosaurs, too, acted as a form of defense. Newly hatched …

A better way to measure cell survival

Measurement of the toxic effects of chemical compounds on different types of cells is essential to the development of cancer drugs that are intended to kill their target cells. Cell survival analysis is also an important task in areas such as environmental regulation to test industrial and agricultural chemicals for potentially harmful effects on healthy cells. MIT biological engineers have …
