Novel solar-powered technology results into no new emissions by removing carbon from atmosphere

Novel solar-powered technology results into no new emissions by removing carbon from atmosphere

Scientists are having big hopes from their new type of solar-powered technology that it can lessen climate change. In the journal Science, a team of scientists disclosed that they have developed a device that absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and with the help of sunlight, it is broken into a mix of carbon monoxide and hydrogen known as synthetis gas or syngas.

Study reveals new insights about our last universal common ancestor, LUCA

Study reveals new insights about our last universal common ancestor, LUCA

Some of our earliest ancestors have left behind traces in the genes that they passed to their descendants. Geneticists have surveyed around 2,000 genomes of modern microbes with an aim to track these genes.

Researchers said that using this technique, they would be able to know new information about the life of our last universal common ancestor, LUCA. According to the results, LUCA was a heat-loving microbe that fed on hydrogen gas.
