500 species of fish can change their sex in response to their environment

500 species of fish can change their sex in response to their environment

Five hundred species of fish change sex in adulthood, often in response to environmental cues, researchers have found. "I've followed the bluehead wrasse for years because sex change is so quick and is triggered by a visual cue. How sex can reverse so spectacularly has been a mystery for decades. The genes haven't changed. So it must be the signals that turn them off and on," said Prof Jenny Graves, one of the researchers of the study. Using the latest genetic approaches and epigenetic ana........

CO2 as energy? Mumbai scientist shows the way

A scientist from Mumbai-based Tata Institute of Fundamental Research has developed a material that can mimic photosynthesis to convert carbon dioxide to fuel. The invention has the potential to combat global warming. Dr Vivek Polshettiwar, an associate professor in the Division of Chemical Sciences, has named his invention 'Black Gold', which has been published in the scientific journal of the Royal Society of Chemistry, UK. He is now looking to patent the product. Carbon dioxi........

Scientists succeed in mapping every neuron in a worm, a breakthrough in neuroscience

Every neuron and connection between them in the male and female bodies of an animal has been mapped for the first time. This "connectome", as researchers are calling it, brings researchers a step closer to understanding the workings of neurons as well as malfunctions that lead to unexplained mental illnesses. The connectome in question is that of a small, soil-dwelling worm known as Caenorhabditis elegans, or simply, C. elegans. This worm is a widely used organism in neuroscience rese........

Micro-plastics are entering the human body and are dangerous to human health

Plastics – the wonder material known for its durability, stability and affordability has become a major environmental challenge in recent years. This pervasive nature of plastic in the environment has led to its entry in the human body, posing a threat to human health. With over 400 million tons of plastic produced globally every year, the plastic still remains a choice for industries such as cosmetics, food packaging, utensils etc. Much of waste plastic ends up in dump yards and also gets accumulated in water bodies. A number of studies have shown its adverse e........

Three years on scientists confirm Oumuamua not alien spaceship, can't identify it

After investigating the nature of a mysterious and apparently cigar-shaped object called ‘Oumuamua spotted in 2017 speeding through our solar system, astronomers remain uncertain over how to classify it, but are confident it is not an alien spaceship. Its odd shape and motion had prompted some scientists to wonder whether ‘Oumuamua - the first object from another star system found passing through our solar system - was some so........

NASA to search for life on Saturn’s moon Titan

It is the only celestial body besides our planet known to have liquid rivers, lakes and seas on its surface. For its next mission in our solar system, NASA plans to fly a drone copter to Saturn's largest moon Titan in search of the building blocks of life, the space agency said Thursday. The Dragonfly mission, which will launch in 2026 and land in 2034, will send a rotorcraft to fly to dozens of locations........

astronomers detect radio signal coming from massive galaxy far far away

Astronomers detect radio signal coming from massive galaxy far, far away

It sent a signal that we were able to detect here on Earth. The galaxy, which carries the complex scientific label DES J214425.25-405400.81, is a whopping 4 billion light-years away, but it’s been pegged as the source of a single, non-repeating fast radio burst (FRB) that was heard loud and clear by an array of radar dishes in Australia. Never scrub anything again with Black+Decker’s $15 power scrubber for dishes and everything else in your kitchen Upon its detection, researchers began investigating the possible source of the FRB, managing to not only find the galaxy that it was........

New Solar Technology Could Produce Clean Drinking Water, Finds Study

Desk Solar stills use the sun to evaporate dirty or salty water and condense the vapour into safe drinking water, but large expensive stills can only produce enough water for a family. However, researchers have now developed a new material that speeds the process of evaporation and thus enables small stills to provide the entire water requirements of a family. If the tech could prove cheap enoug........

Mysterious white light spotted in NASA's Mars image triggers alien debate

NASA's Curiosity Rover has been exploring the Martian surface since 2012, and in this period, the rover has spotted several stunning images of the Red Planet which gave more insights about this cosmic neighbor's geology. Now, an image taken by Curiosity Roverhas emerged as the hottest debating point among conspiracy theorists and alien enthusiasts. In this image, a disc-shaped orb which is white in color can be seen floating above the surface of Mars. Even though NASA has not revealed anything regarding the real cause of light, experts revealed that the Curiosity Rover had capture........

Artificial intelligence creates perfumes without being able to smell them

A perfume created by a computer system will be launched on the Brazilian market. The artificial intelligence 'Philyra' involved combined ingredients in a manner unthinkable to most humans. Philyra bases its knowledge on a database containing the composition of almost 1.7 million perfumes. She also knows in which country, age group and gender a fragrance has sold particularly well. "Between all these creations........
