Scientists Discover Evidence of a New Type of Matter: the Tetraquark

Scientists Discover Evidence of a New Type of Matter: the Tetraquark | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
The recent identification of a long-theorized particle is strong evidence of a new form of matter: the Tetraquark.


With the existence of tetraquarks, it is possible for neutrons within the core to interact strongly enough to create tetraquarks. This could even lead to the production of pentaquarks and hexaquarks, or even that quarks could interact individually without being bound into color neutral particles. This would produce a hypothetical object known as a quark star.

My goodness - can anyone tell me why so many people do not find it difficult to believe that a hairy southeast African Homo erectus hominid suddenly gave birth to a smooth-skinned male and female human being (with an ego, I, that which is conscious and thinks part of the mind - that the Homo erectus hominids concerned "did not (genetically) possess" - and also the ability to speak, etc.) but find it completely impossible to believe that lakes and streams once existed on Mars, and that this planet was (also) "occupied" at one time? Wouldn't it simply be a better idea to (stop "speculating" and) go there to prove this?
Akilade Ayotunde's comment, June 23, 2013 7:15 AM
We're late arrivals on the galactic scene- for all we know mighty civilizations might have arisen on Mars and may now have disappeared without trace. We ourselves might be degenerates from mightier beings and not quantum leaps from hominids..

The Nanodoctor Will See You: Tiny Particles May Help Fight Disease

The Nanodoctor Will See You: Tiny Particles May Help Fight Disease | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Researchers are designing tiny particles to act as medicine.

 

The particles are coated with waterlike molecules that allow them to travel inside the body without being detected by the immune system, Farokhzad said. Their surfaces contain molecules that provide them with a "GPS" to seek out abnormal cancer cells.

 

Once they find a cancer cell, the particles stick, and like a Trojan horse, the cancer cells take them inside where they can release medicine that's toxic to the cell, Farokhzad said. [Watch the World Science Festival Live.]

 

In a study published last year in Science Translational Medicine, Farokhzad and colleagues showed that, in people, the nanoparticles delivered a much higher dose of medicine to cancer cells than to other cells in the body. Follow-up studies will test the effectiveness of the drug at treating tumors.

Reservoir deep under Ontario holds billion-year-old water

Reservoir deep under Ontario holds billion-year-old water | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Search is on for signs of microbial activity isolated in Earth's crust.

 

15 May 2013

Water filtering out of the floor of a deep Ontario mine has been trapped underground for more than a billion years. It bubbles with gasses carrying nutrients that could sustain microbial life.

 

Scientists working  2.4 kilometres below Earth's surface in a Canadian mine have tapped a source of water that has remained isolated for at least a billion years. The researchers say they do not yet know whether anything has been living in it all this time, but the water contains high levels of methane and hydrogen — the right stuff to support life.

 

Micrometre-scale pockets in minerals billions of years old can hold water that was trapped during the minerals’ formation. But no source of free-flowing water passing through interconnected cracks or pores in Earth’s crust has previously been shown to have stayed isolated for more than tens of millions of years.

 

“We were expecting these fluids to be possibly tens, perhaps even hundreds of millions of years of age,” says Chris Ballentine, a geochemist at the University of Manchester, UK. He and his team carefully captured water flowing through fractures in the 2.7-billion-year-old sulphide deposits in a copper and zinc mine near Timmins, Ontario, ensuring that the water did not come into contact with mine air.

Team develops new technique to track cell interactions in living bodies

Team develops new technique to track cell interactions in living bodies | 21st Century Innovative Technologies and Developments as also discoveries, curiosity ( insolite)... | Scoop.it
Researchers at Stanford University School of Medicine have developed a new technique to see how different types of cells interact in a living mouse.

 

The process uses light-emitting proteins that glow when two types of cells come close together.

 

Using the technique, the team was able to pinpoint where in the body metastatic cancer cells ended up after they broke off from an initial tumor site, using readily available lab reagents. The team chose chemicals that are easily available in most life sciences laboratories because they wanted to develop a technique that could be widely used.

A robot as small as a housefly has managed the delicate task of flying and hovering the way the actual insects do.

 

“This is a major engineering breakthrough, 15 years in the making,” says electrical engineer Ronald Fearing, who works on robotic flies at the University of California, Berkeley. The device uses layers of ultrathin materials that can make its wings flap 120 times a second, which is on a par with a housefly's flapping rate.

 

This “required tremendous innovation in design and fabrication techniques”, he adds.

Bearing in mind that we live on a planet spinning in space - no one really knows WHERE. And that no one knows WHO created (or genetically-engineered) real insects, like wasps and bees that carry potentially poisonous "missiles" that can be fatal to human beings...Maybe certain insects that already exist were created (or genetically-engineered) in the same way (and for a specific purpose) by another "advanced intelligence?"
