Nanorobots could swim through blood to deliver drugs

Nanorobots could swim through blood to deliver drugs
Someday, treating patients with nanorobots could become standard practice to deliver medicine specifically to parts of the body affected by disease. However, merely injecting drug-loaded nanoparticles might not always be enough to get them where they need to go. In the ACS journal, Nano Letters, scientists are reporting the development of new nanoswimmers that can move easily through body fluids to their targets.

Crippled probe discovers distant relative

Crippled probe discovers distant relative
“The diversity of the phenomena of nature is so great, and the treasures hidden in the heavens so rich, precisely in order that the human mind shall never be lacking in fresh nourishment,” said 17th-century mathematician, astronomer, and astrologer Johannes Kepler. Inspired by his work, NASA's Kepler mission has just ‘unearthed’ (sorry) what could easily be seen as one of the greatest results of human endeavour yet - evidence of an Earth-like planet in the habitable zone around Kepler-452.

Pac-Man inspired space debris clean-up

Pac-Man inspired space debris clean-up
Space debris is the collection of objects travelling at up to 17,500 mph in orbit around Earth, including spent rocket stages, old satellites, fragments from disintegration and more. According to NASA, there are more than 20,000 pieces of debris larger than 10cm and 500,000 pieces of debris larger than 1cm being tracked, as well as the many millions of pieces of debris that are too small to be tracked.

MIT observes elusive Weyl points for the first time

MIT observes elusive Weyl points for the first time
Part of a 1929 prediction by physicist Hermann Weyl - of a kind of massless particle that features a singular point in its energy spectrum called the ‘Weyl point’ - has finally been confirmed by direct observation for the first time, says an international team of physicists led by researchers at MIT. The finding could lead to new kinds of high-power single-mode lasers and other optical devices, the team says.
