Stand Back, Way Back: Flu Virus Can Be Spread Just by Breathing
Simply standing back when someone coughs or sneezes won't necessarily protect you from the flu — the virus can spread just by breathing.

NASA Releases Stunning Photo of Cartwheel Galaxy
NASA has released the sharpest image ever taken of the Cartwheel Galaxy, a lenticular galaxy in the constellation Sculptor. The Cartwheel Galaxy was first spotted on wide-field images from the U.K. Schmidt telescope and then studied in detail using the Anglo-Australian Telescope. Also known as LEDA 2248, ESO 350-40 and IRAS 00352-3359, the galaxy is [...]

Scientists Create First Stem Cells Using CRISPR Technology
In a scientific first, a research team led by Gladstone Institutes scientists turned mouse skin cells into so-called induced pluripotent stem cells by activating a specific gene using CRISPR technology. The results appear in the journal Cell Stem Cell. Pluripotent stem cells can be turned into virtually any cell type in the body. As a [...]

Viruses Are Everywhere, Maybe Even in Space, Biologists Say
Viruses are the most abundant and one of the least understood biological entities on modern Earth. They might also exist in space, but as of yet scientists have done almost no research into this possibility. Portland State University’s Professor Ken Stedman and co-authors hope to inspire integration of virus research into astrobiology. Viruses are an [...]

A nanophenomenon that triggers the bone-repair process
Researchers have resolved one of the great unknowns in bone self-repair: how the cells responsible for forming new bone tissue are called into action. Their work reveals the role of an electromechanical phenomenon at the nanoscale, flexoelectricity, as a possible mechanism for stimulating the cell response and guiding it throughout the fracture repair process.

Virtual reality goes magnetic
The success of Pokémon GO made many people familiar with the concept of 'augmented reality': computer-generated perception blends into the real and virtual worlds. So far, these apps largely used optical methods for motion detection. Physicists have now developed an ultrathin electronic magnetic sensor that can be worn on skin. Just by interacting with magnetic fields, the device enables a touchless manipulation of virtual and physical objects.

Breakthrough study shows how plants sense the world
Plants lack eyes and ears, but they can still see, hear, smell and respond to environmental cues and dangers. They do this with the aid of hundreds of membrane proteins that sense microbes or other stresses. Researchers now have created the first network map for 200 of these proteins. The map shows how a few key proteins act as master nodes critical for network integrity, and the map also reveals unknown interactions.
