A research group has developed the thinnest possible electrical wires, with a size of just three atoms wide using fragments of molecule-sized diamonds, the smallest diamonds we have.
While people do believe the biggest impact of machine learning lies in developments in the Silicon Valley, we may all be wrong.
Researchers have developed a form of synthetic cardiac stem cell. These stem cells appear to offer therapeutic benefits that can be compared to those from natural stem cells and could even replace some of the risks associated with stem cell therapies.
In March 2016, a Syrian refugee named Rakan Ghebar started seeing a counsellor. He works at a vice-principal at a school for displaced Syrian children, and when he was asked for advice, he was always told to focus on the present.

President Obama has just signed legislation that may heighten tensions with Russia and China and potentially launch the country on an expensive and ambitious effort to build space-based defense systems.
Diamonds come into play to create ultra-thin electrical wires.
It can be remembered that the Cassini probe is currently doing a good job of studying Saturn for us. The beautiful planet is just site of a next big expedition, however, as a new spacecraft will be on the lookout for alien life forms.
We may finally have discovered the physical source of depression in the brain. New research has allowed researchers to identify the lateral orbitofrontal cortex as the area of the brain that is most affected by depression. This can open up possible new treatments.
Graphene is already an amazing material as it is. However, newer studies at the end of the year have revealed that graphene has once again gone and is not yet done surprising us.
