Scientists Made World’s First ‘Diamond Nanothreads’, Possibly The Strongest Material On Earth

Scientists Made World’s First ‘Diamond Nanothreads’, Possibly The Strongest Material On Earth

Diamond is one of the hardest materials in the world. So logically, things made from diamonds should also be very stiff. However lately, a group of researchers from Penn State University, has created the first diamond nanothreads. According to researchers, mathematically, these diamond nanothreads are possibly the strongest and stiffest material on Earth.

Scientists Invented A Drug That Prevents Cancer Cells From Spreading

Scientists Invented A Drug That Prevents Cancer Cells From Spreading

Cancer harms the body when damaged cells rapidly spreads inside the body. But the reality is cancer cells are not invaders, rather they are our own cells which get turned against us. Scientists have long been trying to prevent damaged cells from rapidly spreading inside a cancer affected person’s body. And now scientists are saying that they have created a new drug that can block gene from spreading cancer cells inside body.
