Here is one more reason not to allow yourself to get stressed:)))
 
Trauma not only increases a person’s risk for psychiatric disorders, but can also spill over into the next generation. Its impact comes partly from social factors, such as its influence on how parents interact with their children, but also via ‘epigenetic marks’ — chemical changes that affect how DNA is expressed without altering its sequence. A new study found stress in early life alters the production of small RNAs, called microRNAs, in the sperm of mice, and the mice show depressive behaviours that persist in their progeny.

Stress alters the expression of small RNAs in male mice and leads to depressive behaviours in later generations.

Awesome..:)
 
The ability to move single atoms, the building blocks of all matter universe, is crucial to advancing nanostorage. 

In 2012, IBM announced the creation of the world's smallest magnetic memory bit, made of just 12 atoms. This breakthrough will transform computing by providing the world with devices that have access to unprecedented levels of data storage. But even nanophysicists like to have a little fun. 

In that spirit, the scientists moved atoms by using their scanning tunneling microscope to make a movie, which has been verified by Guinness World Records as The World’s Smallest Stop-Motion Film.

Should science be part of sanctions...???
 
The Ukrainian crisis is beginning to have serious reverberation across science. NATO suspended all civilian and military cooperation with Russia -- affecting programmes that include counterterrorism and disaster-relief work, including work on technology that can detect hidden bombs at crowded public-transport locations. And the US government suspended all contact between NASA and Russian space agencies and government representatives — including visits, meetings and even e-mails.

Country’s science renaissance threatened as NATO and NASA suspend links.

Simply amazing...two weeks ago I had a discussion with friends about what each of us thought would be a fantastic discovery. Gravitational waves came second on my list!!!!!

Primordial GWs.  We've had (indirect) evidence of GWs in the local Universe ever since the discovery of the Talyor-Hulse binary pulsar.

Exciting for remote sensing and data scientists!
 
Meet the new eyes in the sky: Europe has launched the first satellite of what is heralded as one of the most ambitious Earth-observation programmes ever.

Grandma has Parkinson's...and it's so comforting to know that deep brain stimulation is now available in Bulgaria..
