    Astronomers find oldest type of molecule in space

    Everything has a beginning. That’s true for stories, for people, for the universe and even for chemistry. The Big Bang itself produced just a handful of elements (variations of hydrogen, helium and lithium nuclei), so researchers have a pretty good sense of what the first atoms and molecules might have been. But the very first molecular bond to form, linking together atoms of different elements in a single molecule, has long been missing in action.

    The moon is losing 200 tons of water a year to meteorite strikes

    When meteorites slam into the moon, they undoubtedly kick up a little dust. Now, a new study suggests they also shake loose quite a bit of water—something on the order of 200 tons each year. Planetary scientists were tipped to the leaching after reviewing sensor data from a moon-orbiting probe. Between November 2013 and April 2014, the Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer recorded occasional spikes in the numbers of particles, including water molecules, that were lofted off the moon.

    Earliest Ancient Egyptian Tattoos Found on Mummies

    Old EGYPTIANS WERE getting inked up sooner than we suspected. Another examination of two mummies demonstrates the pair were wearing tattoos. The mummies have a place with a gathering of six found in 1900. They were named the Gebelein mummies after the district in which they were found. Presently in the ownership of the British Museum, they were reanalyzed as a component of a continuous undertaking to reevaluate important ancient rarities.

    Study: Nearest exoplanets could host life

    Excitement about exoplanets skyrocketed when rocky Earth-like planets were discovered orbiting in the habitable zone of some of our closest stars – until hopes for life were dashed by the high levels of radiation bombarding those worlds. Proxima-b, only 4.24 light years away, receives 250 times more X-ray radiation than Earth and could experience deadly levels of ultraviolet radiation on its surface. How could life survive such a bombardment? Cornell astronomers say that life already has survi...

    A Netflix Nature Series Says to Viewers: Don’t Like What You See? Do Something About It

    It’s a striking image, watching a walrus climb a rock cliff. During one episode of the new Netflix nature docu-series “Our Planet,” we witness something that shouldn’t be happening — and is only happening now, the producers say, because of climate change. Desperate marine animals driven away from their natural habitats are trying to adapt to shelter elsewhere, and falling to their deaths as a result.

    Russia moves to free nearly 100 captive whales after outcry

    Russian authorities have decided to free nearly 100 whales held in cages in the country’s far east, according to reports. Images of the whales, kept in cramped enclosures in a bay near the Sea of Japan port city of Nakhodka, first appeared last year, triggering a storm of criticism. The animals had been captured by a company that planned to sell them to China but the Kremlin intervened and ordered local authorities to find a way of freeing them.

    In Praise of Public Libraries

    Years ago, I lived in a remote mountain town that had never had a public library. The town was one of the largest in New York State by area but small in population, with a couple thousand residents spread out over about two hundred square miles. By the time my husband and I moved there, the town had lost most of its economic base—in the nineteenth century it had supported a number of tanneries and mills—and our neighbors were mainly employed seasonally, if at all.

    Facebook Chief Mark Zuckerberg Wants More Internet Regulation

    Facebook Inc.

In an op-ed published Saturday on the websites of the Washington Post and Ireland’s Independent, Mr. Zuckerberg said such intervention is vital to protect both the welfare of users and the fundamental values of an open internet.

    Could Gene Editing Cure Herpes One Day?

    Herpes is shockingly common. Recent estimates suggest at least half of all Americans have HSV-1, or oral herpes, which usually manifests as cold sores on or around one’s mouth, but can spread to someone else’s genitals through oral sex or to other parts of the body. Up to a fifth of all Americans have HSV-2, or genital herpes, although 87 percent of HSV-2 cases are never clinically diagnosed, thanks to the fact that many people infected by the virus never develop symptoms.

    E-Cigarette Use Linked to Increased Stroke, Coronary Artery Disease

    One of the largest studies of its kind has found that using electronic cigarettes can lead to a dramatic increase in the user’s odds of having a heart attack, coronary artery disease, and depression. The new research, presented at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2019 Annual Scientific Session, found that the trend may not be as healthy of an alternative to smoking as many have argued.

    Anesthetic drug propofol shows promise in the treatment of medication-resistant depression

    A commonly used anesthetic drug could help people with severe depression. Preliminary research published in the International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology suggests that propofol may trigger rapid, durable antidepressant effects. “Severe depression strikes millions of people each year, and up to one-third of these individuals do not respond to currently available treatments (medications, psychotherapy, brain stimulation),” said Brian James Mickey of the University of Utah, the correspon...
