Genetic Engineering Will Change Everything Forever – CRISPR

Genome editing is a group of methods that gives researchers the ability to modify the DNA of an organism. These technologies let genetic substance to be added, detached, or transformed at specific locations in the gene. Several methods to genome editing have been advanced. The latest one is recognized as CRISPR-Cas9.

The above video tells you many things right from the history of gene editing to the latest tool CRISPR. I hope you get good knowledge about CRISPR from this video.

CRISPR Cas9 and Gene Editing Explained – ScienceHook

For the scientists, the genes and its related fields have been an area of interests for research for a number of years. They have found a lot of therapies and treatments where modern technologies are used to cure various diseases as well as preventive treatments.

How to Get to Mars. Very Cool! HD

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second-smallest planet in the Solar System after Mercury. In English, Mars carries the name of the Roman god of war and is often referred to as the “Red Planetbecause the iron oxide prevalent on its surface gives it a reddish appearance that is distinctive among the astronomical bodies visible to the naked eye. Mars is a terrestrial planet with a thin atmosphere, having surface features reminiscent both of the impact craters of the Moon and the valleys, deserts, and polar ice caps of Earth.

We are planning to start space colonization from Mars itself and that is why we have sent rovers onto Mars to study its composition.

The above video is an animation on how NASA landed its rover on to Mars

HOW IT WORKS: The International Space Station

The International Space Station (ISS) is a space station in low Earth orbit. Its first component was launched in 1998, with the first long-term residents arriving in November 2000. It has been inhabited continuously since that date. The latest major pressurized module was fitted in 2011, with an experimental inflatable space habitat added in 2016. As of December 2018, the station is expected to operate until 2030. Development and assembly of the station continue, with several new elements scheduled for launch in 2020. The ISS is the largest human-made body in low Earth orbit and can often be seen with the naked eye from Earth.

The ISS consists of pressurised habitation modules, structural trusses, solar arrays, radiators, docking ports, experiment bays and robotic arms. ISS components have been launched by Russian Proton and Soyuz rockets and US Space Shuttles.

The ISS serves as a microgravity and space environment research laboratory in which crew members conduct experiments in biology, physics, astronomy, meteorology, human biology, and other fields. The station is suited for the testing of spacecraft systems and equipment required for missions to the Moon and Mars. The ISS maintains an orbit with an average altitude of 400 kilometres (250 mi) by means of reboost manoeuvres using the engines of the Zvezda module or visiting spacecraft. It circles the Earth in roughly 92 minutes and completes 15.5 orbits per day.

How to Cure Aging – During Your Lifetime?

Aging is one of the biggest question we still have. Aging in one word is an error, it is the accumulation of different errors in our body which slows down our system and makes it sluggish. Scientists have been researching extensively and have done many successful tests on animals. We have to wait and see whether we would be able to stop or atleast slow aging or not.

The above video describes three of the most important factors contributing to aging and tells us how can we cure stop these things. So. I hope that you get good knowledge about this topic by seeing the video.

 

Can we stop aging?

I am sure that all of us think about aging at some point in time and also wish to be eternal in some situations. So, do you know that there are many studies going on to find out the reasons for aging and also to find ways to at least slowdown aging?

CERN | Big Bang Machine – Documentary HD

What is CERN?

The European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, is a research organization that operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world. Physicists and engineers at CERN use the world’s largest scientific instruments to study the basic constituents of matter – fundamental particles. Subatomic particles are made to collide at close to the speed of light. The process gives us clues about how the particles interact and provide insights into the laws of nature. We want to advance the boundaries of human knowledge by delving into the smallest building blocks of our universe. Accelerators boost beams of particles to high energies before the beams are made to collide with each other or with stationary targets. Detectors observe and record the results of these high energy collisions. Founded in 1954, the CERN laboratory sits near the border of France and Switzerland border close to Geneva. It was one of Europe’s first joint ventures and now has 22 member states.

So, I think you all would be very interested to know about CERN and you might be having many questions in your mind about CERN. I think you can watch the above video and get some clarity about CERN

Is Anybody Out There? (Alien Life Documentary)

Whenever I look up into the night sky, I get thousands of questions into my head immediately and some of them are like, Do aliens exist? Are aliens there watching us? If aliens exist, then how would they look like? Do aliens exist in another dimension? Are we alone in this vast universe? Are aliens there watching us? If aliens exist, then how would they look like? If aliens exist, why didn’t they contact us yet? What kind of intelligence would they have? and much more

I think almost everyone gets these questions into their brain at some time. So, watch the above video to get at least partial answers to some of the questions as no one on the planet knows exact answers to those questions. Researchers across the world are working very hard to find signs of extraterrestrial intelligence, watch the video and get to know what all are we doing to find aliens.

Wormholes Explained – Breaking Spacetime

Wormholes can be visualized as portals that can allow entities to travel through space and time. The bridges that link two separate points in space-time are referred to as Einstein-Rosen bridges. Black holes, white holes and wormholes are solutions to Einsteins’ Field Equation. A wormhole is said to be connecting two points in space-time. You might have seen these wormholes in science fiction movies like Interstellar, but did you ever bother to know about the wormholes and the possibility of their existence?

There are many questions around the wormholes, Do they exist really? if they exist can we travel through them? Can we travel in time through a wormhole? Can we artificially create a wormhole? What is the exotic matter? What keeps the wormholes open in space? What is the size of wormholes? I hope that the above video will clear all these questions raising in your mind. Below is our detailed article on wormholes for those who want to know more about wormholes

 

What is a Wormhole? – ScienceHook

Wormholes have served as fodder for numerous science fiction stories and movies for quite some time now. There have been several theories that try to explain how wormholes work and several more on how time travel could be made possible through these wormholes.

What If Time Travel Was Possible?

What if the dimension of time was no different from the three dimensions of space we live in? What if you could travel to the past and to the future…. the same way you can move right or left, up or down? Would you be able to change your past? And if you did, would it create a time paradox? What kind of time machine would you need to build, anyway?

Want to read more about time travel and understand the physics behind time travel, want to know about the paradoxes and problems behind time travel, Read the below blog to get a good understanding

 

Is Time Travel Possible? Physics Behind Time Travel | ScienceHook

We all travel in time, don’t we? From the last year, we’ve moved up one year. Another way to say this is that we all are travelling forward at the same speed. But our topic at hand is, can we travel faster or slower? Or can we travel backwards or forward in time?
