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 such huge challenge is to get a primate body that...

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 known as the stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI). Researchers suggest that...
