The Two Faces of Aging: Cancer and Cellular Senescence

Author: Adam Alonzi Aging, inflammation, cancer, and cellular senescence are all intimately interconnected. Deciphering the nature of each thread is a tremendous task, but must be done if preventative and geriatric medicine ever hope to advance. A one dimensional analysis simply will not suffice. Without a strong understanding of the genetic, epigenetic, intercellular, and intracellular […]

First materials to be woven at the atomic and molecular levels created

There are many different ways to make nanomaterials but weaving, the oldest and most enduring method of making fabrics, has not been one of them – until now. An international collaboration led by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) and the University of California (UC) Berkeley, has woven the first three-dimensional covalent organic frameworks (COFs) from helical organic threads. The woven COFs display significant advantages in structural flexibility, resiliency and reversibility over previous COFs – materials that are highly prized for their potential to capture and store carbon dioxide then convert it into valuable chemical products.

It’s possible that there is a “mirror universe” where time moves backwards, say scientists

Although we experience time in one direction-we all get older, we have records of the past but not the future-there’s nothing in the laws of physics that insists time must move forward. In trying to solve the puzzle of why time moves in a certain direction, many physicists have settled on entropy, the level of molecular…

CAD Is a Lie: Generative Design to the Rescue

Repeating things for decades doesn’t make them true. I can prove this pretty easily because, for 52 years now, people thought CAD was an acronym for computer-aided design. But it is time to face facts: It really stands for computer-aided documentation. The computer doesn’t aid your design. The design is in your head, and you …
