Will the heart transplant become successfull when attempted on humans? Pig heart transplants proved that it can extend the recipient's life for several months based on the new study of genetically modified pig hearts that made baboons lived for up to 195 days. For many decades, scientists around the world are seeking if animal organs can be used as an alternative, in a procedure known as xenotransplantation. One
According to a NASA scientist, extraterrestrials so tiny that people were not able to notice might have frequented the planet. NASA Ames Research Centre Prof. Silvano P. Colombano theorizes that aliens are opposite from the what humans expect of them. One such example is the ability to keep undiscovered because they are carbon-based creatures. “The size of the ‘explorer’ might be that of an extremely tiny super-intelligent

Delving into the unknown is both scary and interesting but to these adventure seekers and researchers, there is nothing more exciting than new significant discoveries. Richard Branson will join the submarine expedition that will dive into the bottom of deep and dark largest underwater sinkhole in Belize - the Great Blue Hole. This is going to be quite a stunt since scuba divers usually plunge
Sufficient protein in your diet ensures the body to perform at its best on its daily activities, however, a protein-deficient diet deprives the body to function well.

It might be convenient for people to use styrofoam and plastics for chemical containers or
Adaptation is very crucial for survival and that is what elephants around the world are doing right now to avoid poaching. Elephants in Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park are proof of the never-ending war between pachyderms and humans. A majority of the mammals bear no tusks. They are the lonely survivors from the 90% of the total population that were butchered for their ivory to fund
Ice melts faster than it freezes in the Arctic leaving polar bears little or no place at all to live and give birth. Global warming hastens the melting of ice in the Arctic region but it takes longer to reach freezing point. This event spells extinction for the polar bears. The dawdling freezing of several Arctic regions this winter gave pregnant polar bears a hard
It is getting hotter by the day because of global warming and scientists are thinking of a solution to counter it. Scientists from Harvard and Yale universities are recommending an innovative but not yet proven approach to address global warming by covering the Earth's atmosphere with chemicals that could haze the sun. The study was published in the journal, "Environmental Research Letters" introducing the strategy
