Scientists are on the verge of discovering dark matter by using a very powerful detector filled with liquid xenon located a mile beneath Italy's Gran Sasso mountains. While searching for the dark matter particle, they were able to examine a rare event. The dark matter detector observed the decay of radioactive xenon-124.   Xenon-124 detector located underwater beneath Italy's Gran Sasso mountains.

This 3D printed heart was made using human fatty tissues (Image credit: Tel Aviv University)   3D printing can be used for various applications, like creating toys, clothing, and even food. But thanks to a new breakthrough it can even be used to create organs. Tel Aviv University researchers have successfully printed the world’s first 3D heart using a patient’s own cells and biological materials. They were able to produce an entire heart, complete with cells, blood vessels, ven ...
A $10,000 prototype took 21 hours to convert “HELLO” into DNA and back. Microsoft’s fully automated $10,000 prototype. (Image credit: Microsoft)   We have a looming data problem that companies like Microsoft are looking to solve. As more and more of our lives are digitized and file sizes balloon, we are rapidly approaching the limit of some of our most-used storage mediums.   Physical storage media such as hard disk drives (HDDs) will eventually reach a peak data de ...
Borophene (derived from boron) is stronger and more flexible than graphene, and has a high electronic conductance, making it an excellent material for sensors, batteries, and other applications. (Image credit: James L. Marshall via Wikipedia)   It wasn’t that long ago when graphene was turning heads in all areas of industry for its unusual properties- it’s incredibly strong, conducts heat and electricity with ease, and can be formed into many different structures (nanotubes, ba ...
Amazon’s Project Kuiper will deploy 3,236 satellites that will orbit the earth at various altitudes, and provide broadband service around the globe. (Image credit: Pixabay)   Back in September of last year, reports started surfacing about Amazon posting job offers (software engineer and Project manager) for what they termed a “New AWS (Amazon Web Service) service that will have a historic impact.” It slowly became known, that Amazon needed qualified people to develop clou ...
