Traces of moisture found in the structure of the lunar rocks, evidence against the theory of the Moon's formation as a result of the collision of large celestial body with the Earth.The study of ancient lunar rock samples obtained during the program "Apollo", showed the presence of their crystal structure traces of water. This is not consistent with the theory of the origin of the moon glowing "garbage", which resulted from the collision of Earth with a large cosmic body Yusyue said Zhang of the University of Michigan (USA), one of the authors of the study. In this case, Read more [...]
Long been considered: our planet is so close to the sun, even to a 10% greater - and the end of life. A new estimate makes the prospect of even more joyful: the earthly life of sunsets over the horizon in the next few hundred million years.Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania (USA) expressed the need for revision of the habitable zone as a concept and offered his own version, based on more precise, in their opinion, taking into account the influence of greenhouse gases on the planetary temperature.Scientists have relied on models and Evan James Casting Pu. But the results were the Read more [...]
In addition to masking of different objects, metamaterials are able to model the time-space continuum with different geometries, to scientists in the U.S..Metamaterials are able to manipulate the spread of light through them. A few years ago, it gave rise to the projects to create metamaterials that allow photons to move through its substance only in the areas that characterize the space surrounding us. At the same time other parts of such a facility should have a different geometry, different from Minkowski space.Igor Smolyaninov colleagues at the University of Maryland (USA) has created just Read more [...]
To get from point A to point B in a variety of ways. On what basis do we select your silly walk? Why sometimes run and sometimes go for a quick step? New research suggests that there is a deep fact biomechanical cause. Her understanding may suggest how to create a better and more prosthetic humanoid robots. <br /> From previous experiments carried out on the treadmill, scientists know that people move from step to run, when the rate increased from 2 to 3 m / s. The fact that the body and brain are trying to minimize the energy cost of locomotion. At speeds below 2.3 m / s walking Read more [...]

1950s in the U.S. were not so puritanical, as is commonly believed, comparing them to the sixties. And the reason for this was a new powerful tool for syphilis.Fashion on a risky, unconventional sexual relationship, marked a turning sixties, actually began a decade earlier, in the conformist fifties, the economist Andrew Francis of Emory University (USA).It is believed that the sexual revolution has been made possible with the advent of the birth control pill, which so happily coincided with a period of growing the rich and cheeky baby boomers in the U.S. and Western Europe. However, it is Read more [...]
The bacteria that cause leprosy (leprosy), proved to be outstanding experts in the field of stem cells: they are easy to carry out what the scientists out abyss of time and effort. Researchers from the University of Edinburgh (UK) found that "prokaznye" mycobacteria may draw mature cells in an undifferentiated, stem condition and reprogram it to turn into another cell type.One of the first objectives of the agent of leprosy are Schwann cells - helper cells of nervous tissue that form the myelin sheath around the axons of peripheral nerve fibers. The researchers took Schwann cells Read more [...]
American explorers exploring the Antarctic subglacial lake Uillans. Scientists report that they have managed to penetrate to a depth of 801 meters, and in the coming hours they will lower scientific instruments into the well, according to "RIA Novosti".

Flowers can not only be a matter of aesthetic pleasure, but to help in the treatment of the brain, say Chinese scientists. According to them, such flowers as crocus, lavender, daffodils, snowdrops and crocus have a number of medicinal properties.
For example, snowdrops contain galantamine, which causes dementia, Alzheimer's disease of mild to moderate severity, including those struggling with chronic cerebral circulation, increasing the concentration of acetylcholine in the body. That acetylcholine is responsible for the transmission of messages coming from neurons in Alzheimer's disease Read more [...]
According to one theory, the blood type influences the character of the man and his personal life. It is noteworthy that this approach is especially popular in Japan. 75% of Japanese people believe blood type connection, character, and good luck in love.
The idea is that a person's blood is passed a certain set of talents and qualities, reports Meddaily. This was the first time in 1971, said Sasahiko Nomi. Now the theory developed by his son - Tositaka Nomi.
Experts say that a person should eat only according to blood group, because it affects the acidity of the stomach. This position Read more [...]
Frost we are happy only when it comes in the form of a good old man with a beard, wearing a fur coat and a bag full of gifts. In all other cases, the cold - the eternal enemy of mankind. To escape from it, people wrapped in coats, jackets, wear underwear. But even this does not help, freezing during the winter holidays noses and cheeks account no! However, it turns out, we carry the fire, which protects from the cold within. Yes, yes, it is in your body!Why our early ancestors were not killed during the Ice Age? It is not always they sat by the fire, wrapped in skins - needed to produce Read more [...]
In the DNA of germ cells detected methyl modifications that remain in place even in the complete erasure other such modifications. Probably, these methylation-resistant foci responsible for the distribution of epigenetic code offspring.It is known that stress, smoking, endured disease, famine impose on our DNA its mark. Imprint literally: we are talking about epigenetic modifications, when the sequence of the DNA is the same, and the activity of genes can change radically. (In fairness it should be noted that such modifications may occur not only at the DNA, but also to the histones - proteins Read more [...]
