Boeing created world's Lightest Microlattice Metal

Boeing says it's created the lightest metal ever, a microlattice material which it describes as 99.99% air.
Weight savings are crucially important in aircraft manufacturing, since a lighter aircraft requires less fuel, which is airlines' largest operating expense.

BRITISH SCIENTISTS WANT PERMISSION TO GENETICALLY EDIT VIABLE HUMAN EMBRYOS

While scientists around the world continue to debate the use of the CRISPR/Cas9 system, the tool capable of precisely editing DNA on the genomic level, British scientists working at the Francis Crick Institute in London announced today that they have applied for permission from the United Kingdom's fertility regulator (the UK Human Fertilization & Embryology Authority) to use this technique on viable human embryos. If granted,...

Dark matter hiding in stars may cause observable oscillations

(Phys.org)—Dark matter has never been seen directly, but scientists know that something massive is out there due to its gravitational effects on visible matter. One explanation for how such a large amount of mass appears to be right in front of our eyes yet completely invisible by conventional means is that the dark matter is hiding in the centers of stars. In a new study, physicists have investigated the possibility that large amounts of hidden mass inside stars might be composed of extremely lightweight hypothetical particles called axions, which are a primary dark matter...
