Physicists believe that life can exist in a 2D world

Why do we live in a Universe with three spatial and one temporal dimension 3 + 1, as one would say cosmologists? Why this combination, and not 4 + 2 or 2 + 1? Over the last decade, physics many times explored this question in mind for other universes with other properties, to understand, could they be complex life or not. And inevitably come to the conclusion that it could exist in a universe with four spatial dimensions or two time. So people will inevitably be (and were) in the universe with dimension 3 +1.

In search of a cure for CRISPR: is it possible to reverse changes in the genes?

When the scientists behind the Manhattan project, learned about the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the enthusiasm of the enthusiasm was replaced by grim regret. What started as a revolution in physics, mutated into a weapon of mass destruction — which was impossible to defend. From the point of view of biology, CRISPR has the destructive power of this magnitude. And scientists do not want history repeated itself again.

A new interface connects the brain with the cloud in this century.

Imagine a future technology that will provide instant access to global knowledge and artificial intelligence literally at will, if you think about something specific. Communication, education, work and the world as we know it — would change everything. An international group of scientists under the leadership of the University of California at Berkeley and the Institute for molecular manufacturing, USA, published a paper in Frontiers in Neuroscience, in which he spoke about the emergence of amazing things at the intersection of nanotechnology, nanomedicine, AI and computing.

Presents the world's first heart, printed on a 3D printer of human tissue

Scientists from around the world are trying to use 3D printing technology to create artificial organs. If they can prove its safety, efficiency and durability, in the future mankind will be able to forget about the donation, and to introduce in the body in need of healthy organs of people their artificial counterparts. Previously, researchers from Switzerland have managed to create a mechanical replica of the human heart, but it was printed out of silicone. Since silicone can be rejected by the body, scientists ought to create a heart out of natural human tissues, they finally succeeded.

Regenerative medicine: the way to longevity of mankind. Are we close to that?

Lizards can grow back whole limbs. Flat worms, sea stars and sea cucumbers grow the whole body. Sharks continually replace lost teeth, often growing more than 20,000 teeth in a lifetime. How to transfer these practical superpowers to people? Answer: through cutting-edge innovations of regenerative medicine. While big data and artificial intelligence change our practice and invent new therapies, regenerative medicine aimed at the replacement and rejuvenation of our physical body.
