See Pictures Of Artificial Sun Developed By China That Can Reach 100million Degree Celsius

While some countries are still battling with infrastructures, potholes, electricity among others, China is thinking of having its own Sun to power the earth. Scientists at the Hefei institutes of physical science, part of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CASHIPS), have developed a nuclear fusion reactor that achieved 100 million degrees Celsius in its core plasma during a four-month experiment this year. Nicknamed the ‘Chinese Artificial Sun’, the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) can

New Virus Found In China And Can Possibly Cause Another Pandemic If Not Taken Seriously - Scientists

Chinese scientists have cautioned that if not taken seriously, pigs could cause another pandemic as a strain of swine flu which could spread to humans. Researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences have been researching swine flu outbreaks in pig farms around the country and according to them, the new strain can be passed on to people. Since the first outbreak in 2016 two people are known to have contracted the virus, called G4 EA H1N1 (which was transmitted from pigs). The two cases of an EA H1N1 virus similar

These Two Identical Monkey are The First Primate Clones Made By The Method That Developed Dolly

Chinese scientists have produced two genetically identical long-tailed macaques using the same technique that gave us Dolly the sheep, the world’s first cloned mammal. Scientists in Shanghai say they've produced two cloned macaque monkeys by taking the DNA from the nuclei of fetal monkey cells and putting the genes into monkey eggs that had their own DNA removed, the scientists stimulated the eggs to develop into embryos, which was then placed into the wombs of female surrogate monkeys to develop into baby

Fat is directly linked to weight gain not carbs

The research looked at mice on 30 different types of diets. The result of the research found that the mice on a high-fat, low-carb diet gained the most weight, while mice on a low-carb diet actually gained no weight at all. The findings suggest that trendy high-fat, low-carb diets might not be effective at helping you lose weight — but is that actually true? If you're trying to lose weight, you've probably jumped on the low-carb diet bandwagon at one point or another. Many weight loss gurus have claimed

Arid environments buzz with more bees, says study

Nov. 29, 2020 -- Researchers have mapped the distribution of bee species to study the size and diversity of their global population. There are more than 20,000 species of bees which until now lacked accurate global distribution data. The researchers combined a comprehensive checklist of bee species distributions and about six million public records of the insects to depict and map global patterns of diversity. Researchers found that the northern hemisphere has a more diverse bee population than the southern
