Scientists Invent Oxygen Particle That If Injected, Allows You To Live Without Breathing

Submitted by par in news at 2013-11-14 23:10:01 UTC

A team of scientists at the Boston Children’s Hospital have invented what is being considered one the greatest medical breakthroughs in recent years. They have designed a microparticle that can be injected into a person’s bloodstream that can quickly oxygenate their blood. This will even work if the ability to breathe has been restricted, or even cut off entirely. This finding has the potential to save millions of lives every year. The microparticles can keep an object alive for up to 30 min after respiratory failure. This has countless potential uses as it allows life to continue when oxygen more

Nuclear fusion milestone passed at US lab

Submitted by labrint in news at 2013-10-08 17:20:01 UTC

Harnessing fusion (the process that powers the Sun) could provide an unlimited and cheap source of energy. But to be viable, fusion power plants would have to produce more energy than they consume, which has proven elusive. Now, a breakthrough by scientists at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) could boost hopes of scaling up fusion. During an experiment, the amount of energy released through the fusion reaction exceeded the amount of energy being absorbed by the fuel - the first time this had been achieved at any fusion facility in the world. more

Google vs. Death

Submitted by nitdia in news at 2013-09-19 21:30:02 UTC

Google is planning to launch Calico, a new company that will focus on health and aging in particular. "In some industries," says Page, who spoke exclusively with TIME about the new venture, "it takes 10 or 20 years to go from an idea to something being real. Health care is certainly one of those areas. We should shoot for the things that are really, really important, so 10 or 20 years from now we have those things done." more
