The potential of stem cells have been brought to life when they started to try the cells create tissues and organs, but this is the first time an attempt is made at creating bones from stem cells.
California has had a severely dry last few years – and this could be the “new norm” for centuries. This extended drought is linked with the changes in the sea surface temperature of the Pacific Ocean, according to a study led by University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) professor Glen MacDonald.
Gentoo penguins, an arctic species distributed around the South Pole, have evolved a special method to remian ice-free, say researchers who are now hoping to adapt their findings to airplane wings which frequently need de-icing. "It's a little ironic that a bird that doesn't fly could one day help airplanes fly more safely," said one researcher.
A recent study found that the extent to which animals tolerate humans is largely driven by the environment in which they live and their body size.
A new study has learnings that may help builders and urban planners set things down in the right place, not so much the place on top of unpredictable geological processes.
Hypercarnivores, or enormous predators, most likely shaped the ecosystem during the Pleistocene epoch. Essentially, packs of these large animals controlled populations of herbivores so to preserve the ancient landscapes and valuable vegetation.
Mineral clues hidden within ancient molten rocks suggest life on the planet arose 300 million years ahead of previous estimates. This changes the way scientists view the Earth following its formation 4.5 billion years ago.
Researchers from three California universities and related institutions recently published findings regarding Southern California's "split personality" duo of wildfire types.
A team of scientists at UCLA were recently able to map 3D versions of all the atoms within a structure. Until now, we did not have the precision to show every single atom. Knowing this will likely allow engineers and scientists to build stronger structures, including aircraft.
Titan, which is rife with liquid methane seas and has a north pole that is wet with methane that survives in its very cold temperatures, might be better understood following recent UCLA findings.
