Scientists engineer bacteria to produce renewable, engine-ready propane gas
To turn the bacteria into propane-producing machines, the scientists interrupted the biological process that turns fatty acids into cell membranes. The researchers used three novel enzymes to channel the fatty acids along a different biological pathway, resulting in the bacteria producing engine-ready, renewable propane instead of cell membranes. The results are published in Nature Communications.

Kennedy's goal was accomplished on the Apollo 11 mission when astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed their Lunar Module (LM) on the Moon on July 20, 1969, and walked on its surface while Michael Collins remained in lunar orbit in the command spacecraft, and all three landed safely on Earth on July 24. America CAN do this again! Support bipartisan legislation that sets NASA’s focus on the Moon! Specifically, the REAL Space Act of 2013 directs NASA to plan to return to the Moon by 2022 and develop a sustained human presence there as a stepping stone for future exploration.

BIG ANOUNCEMENT FROM RADICAL SCIENCE NEWS: The Palo Alto prize had launched its youtube video!
The ultimate prize for anything you do in life is life itself. At least that is what the world of science is now begining to believe. For the first time ever there will be a global challenge to solve or cure aging. May the best lab or individual(s) win and may we all learn from one another to find a cure!!!!!!!! ...

"....The ATLAS collaboration now reports an improved analysis of the same dataset, focusing on two Higgs decay paths: Higgs two photons, and Higgs two Z bosons, which then decay into four leptons (electrons, positrons, muons, and antimuons). The combined measurement gives a value for the Higgs mass of = (statistical uncertainty) (systematic uncertainty) giga-electron-volts, with the systematic uncertainty reduced by a factor of 3.
To accomplish this, the ATLAS team did a thorough reworking of two measurement’s facets: a more precise calibration of each element of the detectors to minimize systematic uncertainties, and an improved statistical analysis that better separates the signal from the background. With the more accurate mass value in hand, theorists could obtain more precise expectations for the production and decays of the Higgs boson at the LHC, which will help establish if there are signs of new, beyond-standard-model physics...."

ANNOUNCEMENT: We have just launched the public facebook group for an RSN Affiliated Space advocacy network. Stay tuned for press release in the coming days.
What is SSN? The first organization dedicated to supporting the settlement of independently organized space colonies founded by the leaders willing to see the dream of being at the vanguard of the multi planetary wave which will soon cascade across our solar system and beyond. Simply advocating is not enough, we're seeking active participants willing to make this multi year journey together.
