Roughly 4 billion light years away in the constellation, Leo, the explosive remnant of a stellar collision between two neutron stars – predicted to be the source of all the gold and platinum in our universe – may have been caught on camera by an international team of researchers.
After infecting a group of pigs with a deadly form of Ebola virus, a team of Canadian researchers found they passed it to monkeys housed in cages alongside them – the first experimental evidence of Ebola infection spreading between two different animal species.
The Hepatitis A virus may hijack an infected cell’s shipping machinery to fashion a cloak-like envelope. The finding shatters decades old dogma about viruses and may explain how HAV evades our immune system's first responders
The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine has been awarded to James E. Rothman, Randy W. Schekman and Thomas C. Südhof "for their discoveries of machinery regulating vesicle traffic, a major transport system in our cells."
Using a program called lobSTR, researchers extracted individual, genetic fingerprints from an online database and compared them to gene-based genealogy sites, social media and other online tools, to find their match.
Using the Keck-2 telescope, researchers have obtained high-resolution images of a jupiter-like planet's atmospheric barcode and said it hints at how the planet – known technically as HR 8799c – was molded.
