Could the world’s deep seas become China’s mining frontier?

Posted by in categories: chemistry, government, mapping

The researchers conducted a series of government-funded surveys from 2011 to 2020 and located potentially high-yield deposits of various essential industrial minerals from nickel to rare earths, according to a paper published in the Chinese-language Bulletin of Mineralogy, Petrology and Geochemistry last week.


Chinese researchers have spent the last decade mapping the globe’s ocean floors looking for potential mineral deposits.

Physicists create tunable superconductivity in twisted graphene ‘nanosandwich’

Posted by in categories: energy, physics

When two sheets of graphene are stacked atop each other at just the right angle, the layered structure morphs into an unconventional superconductor, allowing electric currents to pass through without resistance or wasted energy.

Starships lining up for launch as SN9 closes in on clearance

Posted by in category: space travel

Starship SN9 is continuing to wait for clearance from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) ahead of her test flight, with a launch date still up in the air. Although the overall schedule delay is relatively short, pent-up production cadence saw SN10 jump at the opportunity to roll down Boca Chica’s Highway 4 late last week.

Partial Reprogramming Rejuvenates Human Cells by 30 Years

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics

Cells in a lab. But very good news.


Researchers from the Reik lab at the Babraham Institute have used the four Yamanaka reprogramming factors (OSKM) in order to epigenetically rejuvenate cells by 30 years, according to one epigenetic clock. […]

Reversed Age by Over 54% Study | Steps to Availaility | Dr Harold Katcher Interivew Series Ep3

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

This is the THIRD PART of the interview with Harold Katcher in Modern Healthspan YouTube channel.


Dr. Harold Katcher is a professor of Biology at the University of Maryland. He has been a pioneer in the field of cancer research, in the development of modern aspects of gene hunting and sequencing. He carries expertise in bioinformatics, chronobiology, and biotechnology. Dr. Katcher is currently working in the capacity of Chief Technical Officer at Nugenics Research exploring rejuvenation treatments in mammals.
In May 2020 there was a paper published on biorxiv about the rejuvenation of rats by over 50%. We did a review of the paper which you can find linked to above. In this interview series we talk with Dr. Harold Katcher, one of the main authors of the paper about the experiment, the steps to get validation, commercialization and how the results fit into his theories of aging.

A Powerful Ion Microscope Developed to Study Quantum Gases

Posted by in categories: particle physics, quantum physics

University of Stuttgart researchers developed a particle-based imaging approach that enables the spatially and temporally resolved investigation of vastly different systems such as ground-state samples, Rydberg ensembles, or cold ions immersed in quantum gases.

The microscope features an excellent time resolution allowing for both the study of dynamic processes and 3D imaging. In contrast to most quantum gas microscopes, this imaging scheme offers an enormous depth of field and is, therefore, not restricted to two-dimensional systems.

The researchers plan to use their new and powerful tool to extend our studies of cold ion-atom hybrid systems and intend to push the collision energies in these systems to the ultracold regime. Using Rydberg molecules to initialize ion-atom collisions, they envision the imaging of individual scattering events taking place in the quantum regime.
