Figured we should point this out since some of our Android friends love to talk about how the iPhone isn't the highest ranked from DxOMark and that the U11 and Pixel were top dogs. That is no longer the case.

Hitting the Breaks on Lethal Brain Cancers

New research conducted in mice provides evidence that highly lethal brain tumors, called high-grade gliomas, stop growing when deprived of a specific molecule naturally produced when brain cells fire.

Santa Monica, CA

Here the +Trey Ratcliff #LAPhotowalk started. You might see that huge group starting to form under the palm trees. Normally I shot from inside the group, but since everyone moves, that was a typical stitching nightmare: resulting in hours of photoshop work. Not this time, I loved the view to the Pacific from the staircase more.
ENJOY

When Neurogenesis Goes Wrong

Neurogenesis is a complex biological process by which neurons are generated from neural stem cells and progenitor cells. Indeed, the discovery of a dynamic neurogenesis in the adult brain (in both humans and animals) was a kind of extraordinary revelation. In fact, contrary to common popular belief, neurogenesis continuously occurs in specific regions in the adult brain, such as in the hippocampus and the striatum. Neurogenesis occurs in both physiological and pathological conditions.

The research is in PLOS ONE. (full open access)

NASA's Space Hubble Telescope spotted an unusual glowing pair of asteroids
NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope helped an international team of astronomers find that an unusual object in the asteroid belt is, in fact, two asteroids orbiting each other that have comet-like features. These include a bright halo of material, called a coma, and a long tail of dust.

GIF:
This time-lapse video, assembled from a set of Hubble Space Telescope photos, reveals two asteroids orbiting each other that have comet-like features. The asteroid pair, called 2006 VW139/288P, was observed in September 2016, just before the asteroid made its closest approach to the Sun. The photos revealed ongoing activity in the binary system. The apparent movement of the tail is a projection effect due to the relative alignment between the Sun, Earth, and 2006 VW139/288P changing between observations.

The tail orientation is also affected by a change in the particle size. Initially, the tail was pointing towards the direction where comparatively large (about 1 millimeter in size) dust particles were emitted in late July. However, from Sept. 20 on, the tail began to point in the opposite direction from the Sun as the pressure of sunlight affects smaller (10 microns in size) dust particles where they are blown away from the nucleus by radiation pressure.
