New research led by a team of scientists at The Australian National University (ANU) has outlined a way to achieve more accurate measurements of microscopic objects using quantum computers—a step that could prove useful in a huge range of next-generation technologies, including biomedical sensing.
Recently, a research team led by Prof. Zhao Gang, Prof. Shi Qinghua from the University of Science and Technology (USTC) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Prof. Cao Yunxia from Anhui Medical University, realized the high-quality cryopreservation of mouse preantral follicles (PAFs) based on biomimetics and physical field-assisted ice inhibition. This work was published in Nature Communications.
Black holes are gatherers, not hunters. They lie in wait until a hapless star wanders by. When the star gets close enough, the black hole's gravitational grasp violently rips it apart and sloppily devours its gasses while belching out intense radiation.
When the U.S. government committed last January to conserving 30% of the United States' natural land and water by the year 2030, the decision was embraced by the majority of Americans. A poll found that 80% of voters supported what's known as the "30 by 30 plan" but questions remain about how to decide which pieces of nature should be protected to reach that goal.
