Is our galaxy just one giant wormhole?

Do we live in a giant wormhole?Are we living inside a giant wormhole? Maybe, if researchers at the International School for Advanced Studies are to believed.

Scientists at Italy's Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati, or SISSA, suggest the Milky Way is simply one big space-time transport system -- a cosmic tunnel across the universe.

The new paper involves researchers from the United States, Italy and India, and incorporates the latest theories and scientific evidence concerning dark matter and the beginning of the universe. Researchers say they're not positing the Milky Way is a wormhole, only that it could be.

X-rays unlock secrets of ancient scrolls buried by volcano

VesuviusScientists have succeeded in reading parts of an ancient scroll that was buried in a volcanic eruption almost 2,000 years ago, holding out the promise that the world's oldest surviving library may one day reveal all of its secrets.

The scroll is among hundreds retrieved from the remains of a lavish villa at Herculaneum, which along with Pompeii was one of several Roman towns that were destroyed when Mt. Vesuvius erupted in A.D. 79.

Scientists build rice grain-sized laser powered by quantum dots

New grain-sized laserScientists at Princeton have built a tiny microwave laser (a "maser") the size of a rice grain. The laser is made of artificial atoms called quantum dots -- miniature bits of semiconductor material.

"It is basically as small as you can go with these single-electron devices," lead study author Jason Petta, an associate professor of physics at Princeton, said in a recent press release.

Space station crew moved after gas leak fears

ISS crewCrew members were evacuated from a US segment of the International Space Station after an ammonia leak was suspected.

SpaceX Suffers Hard Landing on Barge

space xSpace rocketeers at SpaceX just missed a catch on Saturday, failing in a bold first attempt to recycle a used rocket engine by landing it on a ship in the Atlantic Ocean.

"Close, but no cigar this time. Bodes well for the future," said SpaceX chief Elon Musk on Twitter. The touchdown would have been a first for ocean landings.

The landing attempt was made shortly after a flawless 4:47 a.m. (EST) launch of the resupply spacecraft from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

Researchers Create Artificial Organs On Microchips

Organs on computer chipsGreat balls of cells! Scientists are developing mock human organs that can fit in the palm of your hand.

These organs-on-a-chip are designed to test drugs and help understand the basics of how organs function when they are healthy and when they are diseased.

For instance, you have your gut-on-a-chip being developed at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. It's a high-tech approach to dealing with a scourge of the low-tech world.

Spectacular real vigin births

virgin birthsThelma the snake confused then astounded her keepers.

This 6m long (20 ft) python had spent four years alone in Louisville zoo in the US, without ever having met a male of her species. But, somehow, she laid over 61 eggs, producing six healthy babies.  Perhaps she’d managed to secretively mate with a male many years before, and store his sperm all this time?

Genetic tests soon revealed the answer.
