Mars had a surface environment that supported liquid water about 3.5 billion years ago, according to a study of river deposits spread across the red planet. A region of Mars named Aeolis Dorsa contains some of the most spectacular and densely packed river deposits seen on the planet, researchers said.
Bacterial cells treated with a common antibiotic have been spotted changing shape to survive while aboard the International Space Station (ISS).The "clever shape-shifting" was detected in bacteria being experimented on in the near-weightlessness of space, and is believed to help the bacteria survive. The result came after a group of researchers led by Luis Zea from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in the United States sent E-Coli to ISS for experiment.
The International Astronomical Union (IAU) has approved naming of two mountain ranges on Pluto after the first two people known to have scaled the world’s highest mountain peak, Mount Everest.
A new study has identified 27 distinct types of emotions, challenging the long-held assumption that our feelings fall within the universal categories of happiness, sadness, anger, surprise, fear and disgust.
Sun emitted two strong solar flares. The first flare is classified as an X2.2 flare and the second is an X9.3 flare.
Scientists have developed an ultra-thin artificial leaf that absorbs sunlight to generate hydrogen fuel from water, similar to an actual plant leaf.
The treatment aims to give some patients a second chance after first-line drugs have failed. Each dose of Kymriah contains a patient's own immune cells, which are sent to a lab to be genetically modified using a virus. This therapy, known as chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy (CAR-T), gives the cells the ability to recognize and kill the source of the cancer.

The robot was developed by a team of 100 scientists and engineers using low-cost technology originally developed for mobile phones and space industries.
Sepsis in early infancy results in one million annual deaths worldwide, most of them in developing countries. No efficient means of prevention is currently available.
The TDRS network receives signals from vehicles like the space station flying at a mere 250 miles above Earth and routes the telemetry, voice, video and science information to a dedicated ground terminal.
The donor cow, Ratan, belongs to the Gir breed, whose population across the country is around one lakh currently. The Gir breed unevenly spread across Gujarat, Rajasthan and Maharashtra.
