It's incredible how it was so long ago that something had happened and it's still working in these funny ways. its also incredible to see what would happen and how it's happening because this would give us an incredible opportunity to study the incredible wonders with the universe and hope it will reveal the secrets of the universe.

That is very interesting because haven't we found several nest of dinosaurs before and how does it change anything besides the fact that they are a different species.

It is funny how far we have gone throughout all the years, but this just amazes me how much we are still doing today. This also reminds me of when we first went to the moon. This also shows that I have no idea how this is going to work.

Colt Alan Lee Manseth's insight:

I'm glad that at least we have some information about this inspiring man and how he was such a great influence on so many people because he did what he thought was right. This also is godd news to my ears because it's let's us know the great deeds of people that are dead to let the people of today know how he showed it and how he can change our actions even when he is not with us.

Avery Sandler's curator insight, December 8, 2013 2:01 PM

This I found was very interesting. I thought that this was a good article after he sadly died. I knew he passed away and that he was the president if South Africa, but nit much else. One fact I found was interesting was that he was put in jail for 20 years and still wouldn't give up. I also found it interesting how he was the first black president Of South Africa.

Jack O'Dowd's curator insight, December 8, 2013 7:36 PM

This is very sad that one of our world leaders has passed away. But like him, you always have to look at the positives. After he was in jail, it is remarkable that he became a peacful preisedent. He changed the world and tried to promote peace even when it is hard. Also, he was the first black preisedent in the world! He was a truly great role moddel!

Patrick Williams's curator insight, December 9, 2013 7:37 PM

This article made me very sad knowing more and more about Nelson Mandela. Recently, I heard that he passed away which is very, very sad knowing all the amazing things he had done. Nelson's voice got many people and hoping that he wil always be rememberd.

Personalized medicine: The future is now

Personalized medicine: The future is now | The universe | Scoop.it

The difference between science and science fiction is a line that seems ever harder to distinguish, thanks in part to a host of astonishing advances in medical science that are helping to create a new age of promise and possibility for patients.

 

Today cancer drugs are increasingly twinned with a diagnostic device that can determine whether a patient will respond to the drug based on their tumor’s genetic characteristics; medical imaging can be used to identify the best implantable device to treat a specific patient with clogged coronary arteries; and progress in regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy using a patient’s own cells could lead to the replacement or regeneration of their missing or damaged tissues.

 

Given these trends, the future of medicine is rapidly approaching the promising level of care and cure once imagined by Hollywood in futuristic dramas like Star Trek.

 

 

But these examples are not science fiction. They are very real achievements that demonstrate the era of “personalized medicine” where advances in the science of drug development, the study of genes and their functions, the availability of increasingly powerful computers and other technologies, combined with our greater understanding of the complexity of disease, makes it possible to tailor treatments to the needs of an individual patient.

 

We now know that patients with similar symptoms may have different diseases with different causes. Individual patients who may appear to have the same disease may respond differently (or not at all) to treatments of that disease.

Isn't she pretty in pink: NASA discovers a new planet

NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center recently discovered the existence of a new planet about 57 light years away from Earth.
Colt Alan Lee Manseth's insight:

Wow I can't believe that their is a pink planet, jeez I just can't stop thinking to myself about how this planet is pink and how did we even get a picture of it?  I believe in my opinion that this planet is pink because of the sun which probably sends a different type of light that we don't know which that light reflects of of the planets surface which makes it look pink.

The Winds of Deep Space

The Winds of Deep Space | The universe | Scoop.it

If we can use solar photons to drive a sail, and perhaps use their momentum to stabilize a threatened observatory like Kepler, what about that other great push from the Sun, the solar wind? Unlike the stream of massless photons that exert a minute but cumulative push on a surface like a sail, the solar wind is a stream of charged particles moving at speeds of 500 kilometers per second and more, a flow that has captured the interest of those hoping to create a magnetic sail to ride it. A ‘magsail’ interacts with the solar wind’s plasma. The sailing metaphor remains, but solar sails and magsails get their push from fundamentally different processes.

I honestly like to hear this kind of stuff because that means that we may think that some things have gone extinct but actually are just hidden and we don't look close enough and they are right under our nose so we just think that they died out.
