Researchers find a way to reverse antibiotic resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis

A team of researchers from Sweden, France, Belgium and Switzerland has found a way to reverse resistance to an antibiotic drug used to treat tuberculosis. In their paper published in the journal Science, the team describes how they screened compounds that activated different pathways to activate ethionaide, a compound used to treat tuberculosis.


Largest ever brain cancer study provides key insight into one of its deadliest forms

As far as cancers go, one of the worst is a type of brain cancer called glioma - the disease has a five-year survival rate of just 5 percent, and no reliable method for early detection.



A giant study that pooled genetic data from tens of thousands of people could change that, finding more than a dozen new mutations for physicians to hunt for in an effort to identify who is at risk of developing glioma.


A Map Of The Entire Universe In One Image

A map of the known universe to a constant scale would either be very big, or very useless. But use a logarithmic scale to compress the distances as you travel outwards, and you get this gorgeous and slightly Eye-of-Sauron image.

Computer Chess: How It Thinks!

Chess requires intelligence and thought process, so how can a computer possibly do it?



A computer that is playing chess is not "thinking." Instead, it is calculating through a set of formulas that makes it to take good moves. As computers have gotten faster, the quality of these calculated moves has gotten better. Computer chess calculators are now the best chess players on the planet, even though they do it totally...

NASA made this mesmerizing 4K video of the Sun



Launched in 2010, the SDO monitors the Sun 24/7 to better understand how it affects our Earth. To highlight the different temperatures of solar materials, SDO captures footage of the sun in 10 different wavelengths. These sets of wavelengths have been compiled into a video released this week.

The 30-minute film features a soundtrack from German composer Lars Leonhard titled ‘Deep Venture,’ and, as NASA puts it...

This is how the Earth rotates with respect to the stationary stars.



From our perspective looking up at night, it always seems as though the stars are moving across the sky. This video fixes the camera on the (relatively) stationary stars, and shows how it's really us who are moving. It's a really cool trick, and a great video!

Japanese scientists develop near unbreakable glass, as tough as steel

A team of researchers with The University of Tokyo and Japan Synchrotron Radiation Research Institute has created a type of glass that is stronger than many metals. In their paper published in the journal Scientific Reports, the researchers describe how they overcame one of the major hurdles in creating glass imbued with extra amounts of an oxide of aluminum, by using what they call aerodynamic levitation.
