Hubble and Chandra Discover Dark Matter Is Not as Sticky as Once Thought

Get larger image formats In particle physics labs, like the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, scientists smash atoms together to study the underpinnings of matter and energy. On the scale of the macrocosm, nature provides a similar experiment by crashing clusters of galaxies together. Besides galaxies and gas, the Read Full Article Here For…

New mitochondrially-derived peptides show what they can do

(Phys.org)—There is a whole lot more to the textbook mitochondrial genome then once was thought. A case in point is a multifunctional peptide named humanin that is dual-encoded deep within 16S ribosomal RNA gene in the mtDNA. Pinchas Cohen’s lab was one of three labs that simultaneously co-discovered humanin when Read Full Article Here For…
