Kangaroos produce methane comparable to cows

Kangaroos produce methane comparable to cows

It was considered for long that Kangaroos produce less amount of methane because they have Archaea, a unique microbe in their foregut. But now a new study has a complete different finding to share that there is nothing such case and Kangaroos produce a lot of methane when they fart.

According to study's lead researcher Adam Munn of the University of Wollongong, "The idea that kangaroos have unique gut microbes has been floating around for some time and a great deal of research has gone into discovering these apparently unique microbes".

e-Dura Implant: A Step Forward in Paralysis Treatment

In a revolutionary development, scientists from Switzerland have come up with thin and stretchable silicon implant that can be directly applied to the surface of the spinal cord, to stimulate movement in the hind limbs in rats with spinal cord injuries.

World’s Biggest Particle Collider Upgraded, Smashes Energy Records

World’s Biggest Particle Collider Upgraded, Smashes Energy Records

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC), world's biggest particle smasher has been restarted after a two-year shutdown. The CERN scientists confirmed the successful upgrade and informed that the particle accelerator has begun unprecedented experiments.

The European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) scientists informed on Wednesday that the particle collider is now producing almost double the collision energy of what it produced in its first run and it will now work around the clock for the next three years.

Researchers solve mystery behind cheese holes

Researchers solve mystery behind cheese holes

It has been found by Swiss researchers that why holes appear in cheese. They found that hay particles are the reason behind the phenomenon. Scientists controlled the number of holes by controlling the number of hay particles in milk used to make cheese. This mystery has been solved by scientists from the Agroscope Institute for Food Sciences and the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology. Ripening process of cheese was observed by researchers for over a 130-day period. They used a new method based on computed tomography in order to study formation of holes.

Overactive Thyroid linked to Higher Fracture Risk

Overactive Thyroid linked to Higher Fracture Risk

A mildly overactive thyroid gland also increases the risk for fractures in the hips or spinal area, according to a new review. When production of too much hormones that control basic metabolism is triggered by an overactive thyroid gland, the person suffers from the condition known as subclinical hyperthyroidism. However, the condition is difficult to recognize due to lack of symptoms and normal readings for hormones in blood tests.

Students to visit CERN to learn about formation of universe

Students to visit CERN to learn about formation of universe

A group of students is travelling to Switzerland to know more about how the universe was formed. The students from Mexborough School will go to Switzerland to visit CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. At CERN they will learn more about the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

Large Hadron Collider restarts after two years of downtime with increased capabilities

Large Hadron Collider restarts after two years of downtime with increased capabilities

CERN scientists restarted the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on April 5 after being shut down for two years. The power of the collider has doubled from what it was before going under repair, thereby significantly increasing the odds of understanding the dark universe which is believed to lie beyond the visible one.

As the collider restarted, protons started to circle the machine's 27km tunnel for the first time since 2013. Particle beams were travelling in both directions inside parallel pipes. The travelling speed of the particles was close to the speed of light.

Large Hadron Collider All Set to be Restarted

Large Hadron Collider All Set to be Restarted

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) will again get back on track after a two-year of break due to repair and upgrade. This year the collider will have double the power it used to have earlier. As per scientists, higher energies will open new windows into the previously unexplored realms of particle physics.

LHC Atlas detector research scientist Dr Martin Sevior of the University of Melbourne said in a statement that it is quite exciting phase of the LHC, where there are looking forward for physics beyond what has been known so far.

Researchers build Vampire Bat Robot that can Walk and Fly using Foldable Wings

According to researchers from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, they have developed a vampire bat robot that can walk and fly using its wings that are foldable. The robot, the Deployable Air Land Exploration Robot (DALER), could provide help in surveying disaster zone from above.

Stanford Students Invent Gecko Gloves

Stanford Students Invent Gecko Gloves

Adventure lovers and kids can now scale glass walls like a gecko, thanks to an all new invention by the students of Stanford University who have created the “gecko gloves”.

The scientific principles that have employed in creation of “gecko gloves” follow the same lines that are followed by the sticky feet of nature’s most impressive climber. For their innovative project, the Stanford students have patents pending and they have already begun negotiations with toy companies.
