Doctors invent new way to 3D print inside the body

Researchers from Harvard Medical School and Duke University claim to have created a novel method for 3D printing within the human body by using ultrasonic waves to irradiate an injectable biocompatible ink. The team’s study expands on a previously created photo-sensitive ink that hardens when exposed to light beams, as described in a recent publication published in the journal Science. This...

New genetic treatment successfully lets deaf children hear

According to MIT Technology Review, researchers in China say that by giving deaf youngsters a revolutionary genetic therapy, they were able to restore their hearing in a ground-breaking trial. In an experiment that they claim has restored hearing in four of the five children who received the treatment, the scientists altered a benign virus by inserting new genetic code into it. The resulting...

Nobel Prize in physics awarded to 3 scientists who glimpsed the inner world of atoms with tiny light pulses

Three scientists who produced light pulses so brief that they may be used to observe the inner workings of atoms have been granted the 2023 Nobel Prize in Physics. For figuring out how to produce light pulses measured in attoseconds, or one quintillionth of a second, Pierre Agostini, Ferenc Krausz, and Anne L’Huillier will split the 11 million Swedish krona ($1.02 million) prize, the Royal...

Microsoft is considering tiny nuclear reactors because it needs so much power to train their AI

Large language model training is a very power-intensive procedure with a high carbon footprint. Data centers need an absurdly high amount of electricity to function, which, depending on where that energy comes from, might result in significant greenhouse gas emissions. According to The Verge, Microsoft is now planning to move forward with a plan to power them using nuclear reactors since it is...

Diabetes and heart disease risk are lowered by mushrooms and LSD use

Researchers appear to have discovered a benefit to psychedelic use: a lower chance of heart disease and diabetes. After examining ten years’ worth of data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, a team of scientists discovered an unexpected trend: those who reported having tried psychedelics at least once in their lives had a lower chance of getting either condition over the course...
