? Radical medicine??Mention hydrogen peroxide and many people would immediately think of that most famous of synthetic blondes, Marilyn Monroe, but Russian scientists have found that a vapor spray of low concentration peroxide solution could be used as an inhalant to treat several diseases...
? How Life Originated In Space??Life has probably existed on earth for about 3.5 billion years and ever since people could wonder, they have tried to understand its origins. From the first glimmerings of life it is thought that organisms as complex as bacteria had emerged within 0.5-1 billion years.
? Cellular chemistry down the tubes??Cells need to talk to each other in order to work together but their own internal communications systems are just as important. Now, a team from the Curie Institute have developed a system ... that mimic the transport of chemical species in and around the cell.
? Stitched up?Plastic sutures that tighten themselves have been developed from a biodegradable polymer by scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Technology, Aachen, Germany.
