See The First “Big Bang Theory” (The Beginning Of Universe) In Video

Till now, we have read the Big Bang theory in books and on internet. A lot of authors have mentioned the “Big Bang” as an “Explosion”. But it really is not the correct thing to say that the Big Bang was an explosion. Rather the Big Bang was an “Expansion of Space Time”. Still now, we haven’t seen any videos of the Big Bang theory, but for the first time, people will be able to see the Big Bang theory by their own eyes. Some researchers have made a video of the Big Bang theory and it’ll hit the market soon.

Court Declares Human Genes Patentable, Victory For Biotech Firms

Court Declares Human Genes Patentable, Victory For Biotech Firms

For long, biotech firms have been trying to have human genes declared patentable. The reasons for such ambitions are obvious – these biotech firms spend millions of dollars to isolate genes and find cures to diseases. And although they earn many time more than the amount they spend, they want to lay their hands on even more. A new court ruling now seems to have sided with them.

Scientists Use 26,000 Photos To Create 281-Gigapixel Embryo Image

Electron microscopy has long been used as a technique to capture the details of cellular structures at a very micro level. However, until now, the technique was used only to capture a small part of an organism. Now, however, researchers have been able to apply the technique to capture ultra-high-resolution image of the entire zebrafish embryo.
