Update: 3:35 pm: The lander failed and crashed into the surface. With only seconds before touchdown, the spacecraft suffered a problem with the main engine followed by a communications failure. A few minutes later, mission control confirmed that the lander indeed crashed into the moon's surface."Well, we didn't make it," said board member Morris Kahn, "but we definitely tried. And I think the achievement of getting to where we got is really tremendous. I think we can be proud."The team did manage to capture a great lunar selfie only 22km from the surface: Don’t stop believing! We came close but...


Breastfeeding practice by earliest ancestors explained

While the present-day doctors and pediatricians promote the idea of breastfeeding a newborn for better health benefits, recent findings suggest that it was a prevalent practice during ancient times. Breastfeeding Analysis of more than two-million-year-old teeth from Australopithecus africanus fossils found in South Africa have revealed that infants were breastfed continuously from birth to about one year of age. Nursing appears to continue in a cyclical pattern in the early years for infants; seasonal changes and food shortages caused the mother to supplement gathered foods with breast milk. "For the first time, we gained new insight into the way our...

Blood samples from the zoo may help predict diseases in humans: Study

According to recent findings observed by a team of researchers, blood samples from the zoo help predict diseases in humans. Using the findings, the researchers want to use similar genetic patterns, which have been present in the blood of humans and animals for thousands of years, to improve computer-assisted disease prognosis. As part of the study, the researchers, instead of examining tissue and data from human patients, analysed blood samples from 21 animals. The blood was collected during routine examinations between 2016 and 2018 and was made available to the scientists. These scientists normally investigate biomarkers that occur in human...

Gadget's blue light increases consumption of sweets in rats at night

A new study revealed that just one hour of exposure to blue light (the kind of light produced by the screens of our many devices) at night raises blood sugar levels and increases sugar consumption in male rats. Previous research has shown a strong correlation between obesity and the levels of artificial light at night. Much of the artificial light we are now exposed to comes from LED lights and LED screens, which emit high levels of blue light. Retinal cells of the eye are sensitive to this blue light and directly convey information to areas of the brain that...
