    Astrophysicists have combined theory with both observations and laboratory studies and determined that a class of stellar explosions, called classical novae, are responsible for most of the lithium in our galaxy and solar system.

  • Asymmetry found in spin directions of galaxies
    on June, 2020 at 5:46 pm

    The patterns formed by spiral galaxies show that the universe may have a defined structure and suggest that the early universe could have been spinning, according to a computational astronomer.

    A research team has created an Ice Favorability Index. The geological model explains the process for ice formation at the poles of the moon, and mapped the terrain, which includes craters that may hold ice deposits. The model, accounts for what asteroid impacts on the surface of the moon may do to […]

  • The cascade to criticality
    on June, 2020 at 5:45 pm

    Combined theoretical and experimental work unveils a novel mechanism through which criticality emerges in quasiperiodic structures -- a finding that provides unique insight into the physics on the middle ground between order and disorder.

    You've never seen a pair of snake skin shoes like this before. Researchers have developed pop-up shoe grips, inspired by snake skin, that can increase friction between the shoe and the ground. The assistive grips could be used, among other things, to reduce the risk of falling among older adults.

    A research group has found strong evidence for the presence of exotic quark matter inside the cores of the largest neutron stars in existence. The conclusion was reached by combining recent results from theoretical particle and nuclear physics to measurements of gravitational waves from neutron […]

Header Banner: AZT the development name for zidovudine was the first drug launched to treat HIV. It was used in high doses and as monotherapy, causing horrendous side effects and resistance in the HIV virus. In the subsequent 30 years clinical trails has led to the development of single tablet, once daily regimens to treat HIV with limited side effects. Now a two pill combination called Truvada can be given to individuals to prevent the risk of acquiring HIV (shown in the DarkDrug logo).
