I look forward to the day when they can use stem cells to grow new organs of all types for those with failing organs like the pancreas, liver, lungs, intestines, bladders or kidneys.

DUN DUN DUUUNNNN!

Conspiracy theorists start your engines!

Mystery patch found floating on Titan’s seas

Something’s playing hide-and-seek in one of the methane seas on Titan, the largest of Saturn’s moons. New radar images from the Cassini spacecraft show a bright patch, roughly 20 kilometers on a side, pop up near the shoreline — and then disappear.

Planetary scientists think that the mystery blemish may be wind-driven waves, bubbles from the deep or siltlike deposits floating up from the seafloor.

Excellent! I see my death ray generator is coming along nicely. All that money I spent stealing...I mean buying....Tesla's plans is working out beautifully!

Now I just have to figure out what to test it on. Someplace on Earth I'm thinking. Maybe someplace out in the middle of the ocean where it won't do much damage, and island maybe...

Harshing the buzz maaannnn

Schizophrenia and cannabis use may share common genes

Genes that increase the risk of developing schizophrenia may also increase the likelihood of using cannabis, according to a new study led by King's College London, published today in Molecular Psychiatry.

Previous studies have identified a link between cannabis use and schizophrenia, but it has remained unclear whether this association is due to cannabis directly increasing the risk of the disorder.

The new results suggest that part of this association is due to common genes, but do not rule out a causal relationship between cannabis use and schizophrenia risk.

Quadriplegic Man Uses Thoughts To Move His Limb

In a groundbreaking clinical trial, a quadriplegic man moved his fingers and hand with his thoughts thanks to a brain implant developed by researchers at Ohio State University and Battelle.

The paralyzed man, named Ian Burkhart, is the first of five potential participants to trial the new system which has been dubbed Neurobridge. The technology, which was designed for spinal cord injury patients, translates and transmits brain signals to muscles via a chip, effectively re-joining the brain with paralyzed limbs.

“It’s much like a heart bypass, but instead of bypassing blood, we’re actually bypassing electrical signals,” research leader Chad Bouton said in a news-release. “We’re taking those signals from the brain, going around the injury, and actually going directly to the muscles.”

Physicist suggests speed of light might be slower than thought

Physicist James Franson of the University of Maryland has captured the attention of the physics community by posting an article to the peer-reviewed New Journal of Physics in which he claims to have found evidence that suggests the speed of light as described by the theory of general relativity, is actually slower than has been thought.

The theory of general relativity suggests that light travels at a constant speed of 299,792,458 meters per second in a vacuum. It's the c in Einstein's famous equation after all, and virtually everything measured in the cosmos is based on it—in short, it's pretty important. But, what if it's wrong?


If Franson's ideas turn out to be correct, virtually every measurement taken and used as a basis for cosmological theory, will be wrong. Light from the sun for example, would take longer to reach us than thought, and light coming from much more distant objects, such as from the Messier 81 galaxy, a distance of 12 million light years, would arrive noticeably later than has been calculated—about two weeks later. The implications are staggering—distances for celestial bodies would have to be recalculated and theories that were created to describe what has been observed would be thrown out. In some cases, astrophysicists would have to start all over from scratch.
