Scientists have discovered the largest bacterium in the world, the size of an eyelash

Scientists have discovered the largest known bacterium in the world in the swamp in Guadeloupe, which comes in the form of white filaments the size of human eyelashes. About 1 cm long, strange organism, Thiomargarita magnifica, is approximately 50 times larger than all other known giant bacteria and is the first visible to the naked …

“No need to panic” because the sunspot with the potential for solar flares doubles overnight, scientists say

Credit: Pikabai / CC0 Public Domain A sunspot aimed at the Earth has the potential to cause solar flares, but experts told USA TODAI that this is far from unusual and that they have alleviated concerns about how the torches will affect the Blue Planet. The active region 3038, or AR3038, has been growing over …

Scientists have identified a possible source of the red cap on Pluto’s largest moon, Charon

Scientists from the Southwestern Research Institute combined data from NASA’s New Horizons mission with new laboratory experiments and exospheric modeling to discover the probable composition of the red cap on Pluto’s moon Charon and how it could have formed. New discoveries point to drastic seasonal jumps in Charon’s thin atmosphere combined with light that breaks …

Scientists are discovering bionic robo fish to remove microplastics from the sea

Scientists have designed a small robotic fish that is programmed to remove microplastics from the sea and ocean by swimming around and adsorbing it on its soft, flexible, self-healing body. Microplastics are billions of tiny plastic particles that separate from the larger plastic items used on a daily basis such as water bottles, car tires …

Microscopic mites that have sex on our faces at night could face evolutionary oblivion, scientists say

If you think giant pandas were bad, consider the tiny parasitic mites that live in the pores of the skin on our faces, which could be destined for an evolutionary impasse, according to a new analysis of their DNA. More than 90% of us have mites 0.3 mm long in greasy wrinkles on the face, …

Scientists are considering the cause of fast radio bursts in space

In 2007, scientists at the University of West Virginia first identified an unusually intense burst of radio waves from space. Since then, these high-speed radio bursts, or FRBs, have been a mystery astronomers. They only knew they were FRB pulse radio waves and that FRBs come from places within our galaxy, the Milky Way and …
