Researchers Identify New Genes Linked With Schizophrenia Risk in First-of-Its-Kind Study

Researchers have made an important discovery about the causes of schizophrenia, a disease related to dementia or fragmented mentality.   Researchers have identified two genes associated with the disease as well as a third gene that carries the risk of schizophrenia and autism. Scientists involved in this research believes, this discovery can go a long way in finding a cure for these kind of diseases. Researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine found that these harmful genes are almost the same in every ethnic or racial group. The findings of this research were published in Nature Genetics . According to an estimate, about one percent of people worldwide suffering from schizophrenia. The scientists identified two risky genes, SRRM2 and AKAP11, based on a comparative analysis of gene sequencing from individuals with schizophrenia and healthy individuals. It compared a dataset of 35,828 patients with schizophrenia to 107,877 healthy or control groups and included a variety of

The Cells That Died Due to Heart Attack Can Be Revived With the Help of Hormones

Even after a heart attack, our heart can be as healthy as before. This has been revealed in a research conducted by the University of California. Scientists found in this study that heart cells that die as a result of a heart attack can be regenerated with the help of special hormones. The most important thing is that these cells will also be as natural as before, which will prove to be very beneficial in the case of gene therapy procedures. Right now this test has been done only on rats, it is yet to be tested on humans. If this test proves to be effective on humans as well, then it will be very important for the normal life of people who have had a heart attack and their heart has become much weaker than before. In this test done on rats, a synthetic messenger ribonucleic acid was used. In this technique, mRNA creates a blueprint of DNA sequences, which our body uses where proteins and cells are made and controlled. The purpose of doing this by scientists is to change the

Scientists Discovered Super-Jupiter Orbiting A White Dwarf

There are countless stars and planets in the universe. Scientists from all over the world are trying to know about them. Astronomers have got another success in this episode. Astronomers have discovered a Super-Jupiter orbiting a white dwarf. It has been discovered using the European Space Agency's direct observations of Gaia. The discovery is a part of data available in Gaia's Data Release-3, which provides the most comprehensive survey of our galactic neighborhood to date. The Gaia Observatory has conducted a test under which a point in space is orbited about 932056.788 miles (15 lakh kilometers) away from us. With the help of Gaia, astronomers will be able to create a very accurate and multidimensional map of our galaxy. Apart from this, with the help of this map, our actual location in the universe will be better understood.

Potential Alien Signal Coming From the Direction of Earth-Like Exoplanet, Scientists Say

Scientists in China and America put their reputation at stake with extraordinary claims.  These scientists claimed that the newly identified narrowband signal could be a sign of an intelligent extraterrestrial civilization. The signal captured by the world's largest radio telescope, the Five Hundred Meter Aperture Spherical Telescope. It's located in Southwest China, appears to have captured the first sign of life beyond Earth. According to a report published in the South China Morning Post, this signal came from Kepler-438b. Kepler-438b is a potentially Earth-like exoplanet orbiting a red dwarf located 473 light-years away from Earth. Kepler - 438 b has been considered a close relative of Earth. Researchers have described its habitability as potentially similar to Earth. However, this claim of scientists about the discovery of alien life is really surprising.  These signals were detected during the telescope's first targeted alien hunting mission t

Space Probe Reveals Recrets of ‘Restless’ Milky Way

A few days ago, the European Space Agency (ESA) released important data obtained from the Gaia spacecraft, which can enhance the most accurate map of our galaxy. In these data from Gaia, important information about 2 billion stars of our galaxy is hidden. Gaia is located at the second Lagrange point, about 15,00,000 kilometers from Earth. This spacecraft is studying the vast corners of the Milky Way. The new data mainly includes information about stellar positions, distances, motion in the sky, colors of celestial bodies, etc. In addition, the new data may provide insight into strange starquakes, stellar DNA and asymmetric motions. The mission of the spacecraft is to produce an accurate and multidimensional map of our galaxy. Accurate maps of the Milky Way allow astronomers to better understand the structure and evolution of our galaxy over billions of years, the life cycle of stars and our place in the universe. The data sent by Gaia contains better details about about 2

Earth Receiving Strange and Mysterious Radio Signals Again After Some Time

Astronomers have detected another radio signal coming from distant space, the second of its kind, raising further questions about their origins.  This signal is coming from a galaxy located about 3 billion light years away from us. The detection of a new fast radio burst (FRB), named FRB-20190520B, raises some important questions about the origin and source of these signals. The researchers have published their findings in a new paper in the science website 'Nature'.  The paper notes that the source of FRB 20190520B is "co-located with a compact, persistent radio source and associated with a highly conspicuous-star-formation dwarf host galaxy". This signal is believed to be close to another unknown object, which is emitting a weak radio signal. This type of combination has been observed only in one other FRB. FRBs are rapid but brief flashes of radio frequency emission and typically last milliseconds.  They are known to send repeat radio waves at times.

How Does Our Brain Work? Scientists Trace The Workings of The Brain

The brain is the most important part of our body, as it guides our whole body. In other words - from here the whole body operates. Do you know how our brain works? Recently, researchers from Technion Israel Institute of Technology have done a study, in this study it has been told that how our brain works and how it stores information. According to researchers, there are many cells found in our brain which are called neurons. The main function of neurons is to exchange information in our body. According to research, at the single neuron level in the brain, it has been found that computation takes place not only between neurons but also between individual neurons. This is not a simple process but a very complex process. How was this research done? This research not only changes our understanding about the brain but also shows how the brain works. Researchers hope to know about new things through this research. Recommended ⬇️  New Functioning of Cells That Play Key Role i

The Terrible Cold of Mars Frozen a Sensor of Ingenuity Helicopter

The Ingenuity helicopter, which has become the first craft to conduct a powered flight to another planet (Mars), is shivering in the harsh Martian winter. With changing conditions, the spacecraft, which was only designed for a handful of flights during the spring, is facing a new challenge. As the temperature drops, the quadcopter is being turned off at night to rest. However, it has faced new disadvantages. As the team was working to recommend the spacecraft, they recognized that one of the helicopter's navigation sensors, called the inclinometer, had suddenly stopped working. While that sounds like a big deal, engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which has flown it on Mars, have assured it isn't. "This does not necessarily mean the end of our flight to Mars," the team said in a blog update.  According to NASA, the weather is changing in the Jezero crater, where the Perseverance rover is working. This has changed in winter and the increased amount

Why is the Color of the Planet Uranus Lighter than that of Neptune?

Our universe holds countless mysteries. The scientific community is constantly trying to unravel these mysteries.  In this episode, scientists have uncovered a big mystery which is related to our solar system. There are two planets present in our solar system, Uranus and Neptune, which have many similarities with each other.  Despite this, the appearance is slightly different. Neptune looks bright blue while Uranus looks light blue.  Researchers have found out the main reason for this difference between the two.  According to scientists, the light blue color of Uranus is due to the haze present in its atmosphere. According to research by the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA), the researchers developed a single atmospheric model that matches the observations of the two planets. The Gemini North Telescope, the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility and the Hubble Space Telescope were used to study both planets. This model has shown that the light color of

How did the early black holes form and what did they look like? James Webb getting ready for research going back in time

The James Webb Telescope is at its maximum cooling temperature point. Its mirrors have been calibrated and its target is fixed. This telescope will search for evidence of black holes formed after the emergence of the universe and in its childhood.  The web is in the final stages of fully operating its tools before starting scientific research. Blackholes are the mysterious objects in the universe. They are considered to be the demons of the universe.  The thing that makes them different from other cosmic objects is that they are invisible and finding them is a difficult task.  Apart from this, their gravitational force is very powerful. According to scientists, a black hole is found in the center of every galaxy, which includes our galaxy.  A puzzle in front of modern astronomy remains - how did a giant black hole come to the center of every galaxy? James Webb Telescope, whose purpose is to study the universe immediately after the Big Bang, this observatory will keep its ey
