The astonishing jet of an extreme gamma-ray burst

Gamma-ray bursts (GRBs) are short duration transient phenomena lasting from a few seconds to hundreds of seconds. These bursts are localized on the sky using gamma-ray detectors onboard satellites orbiting Earth. The satellites pinpoint the direction of the burst, allowing astronomers to rapidly point their... click to read more

Holographic sound fields shape 3D matter without a touch

3D printing is about to revolutionize the way we fabricate products. Building up objects point-by-point (also called additive manufacturing) enables the fabrication of single parts of arbitrary shape and composition without slow and complicated machining steps. The realm of 3D printing is still young and... click to read more

Interestingly, later Scandinavians don't have as much ancestry from other places from outside Scandinavia as their... click to read more

Mutations in the germline: How the mother repairs the father’s damaged genome

The genome is passed on from generation to generation. Germ cells, which are sperm and egg cells and any precursory cells they developed from, are tasked with maintaining the genomes. These cells are fundamental for maintaining the genomes across generations. The DNA, however, can be... click to read more
