Scientists at the Institute for Integrative Nanosciences in Dresden, Germany, have created “the first sperm-based biobots”—a cybernetic microorganism made of metal and a bull’s sperm cell that can be remote controlled and used to impregnate an egg or deliver a drug to a target anywhere inside your body.
The spermbot was created using a 50-micron-long microtube, which was used to capture the sperm cell, leaving its flagellum—the tail that propels the sperm—outside. Then they used a magnetic field to control the direction of the metal tube, pointing the sperm into any the bearing they wanted.
it looks cool, and spooky, and dramatic… but already i am thinking, “TOO MUCH HUMAN DRAMA, WHERE IS MY MONSTER MAYHEM!?” i know, i know, it is too early to judge. and there has to be some great stuff in the full movie. and hopefully far less, or none, of this first person bullshit.
also after watching this i’m hoping this isnt a “MURICA vs GODZILLA” movie… i am reminding myself to remain calm and wait for more trailers! i am still very excited for a godzilla movie even if i am bitching up a storm already.
The salinity in the lake, which covered a small part of the 96-mile-wide Gale Crater, would have been so low that it could “plausibly be described as drinkable.
Curiosity analyzed sedimentary rocks called mudstones, “which commonly form in calm, still water,” Space.com says. “The mudstones contain clay minerals that formed in the sediments of an ancient freshwater lake, researchers said. Curiosity also spotted some of the key chemical ingredients for life in the samples, including sulfur, nitrogen, hydrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and carbon.”
"The chemistry of the lake would have been congenial to organisms known as chemolithoautotrophs — mineral-eaters. Whether such organisms, which thrive on Earth in exotic environments such as caves and deep-sea hydrothermal vents, actually existed on the young Mars is a question Curiosity lacks the tools to answer."
my questions were “how did it take a pic of itself” and “whats with all the blacked out areas”. well, this is explained because apparently this picture was formed by a whole bunch of other pictures in which they remove the camera arm.
jupiter ascending trailer! first i am hearing about this movie, but it looks frigging sweet. i’m not really a kunis of tatum fan, but they looks pretty killer in this.
the jist? mila kunis is some space princess and she doesnt know. channing tatum is sent to shithole future earth to grab and her and take her to space where all kinds of insane space alien opera shit goes down!
the war doctor gets an action figure next year! it looks like it’s in scale with the original line, not the new 3.75 line… i hope it is, so it can match up to my 12 doctor set!
THE OTHER DOCTOR, available across the UK and Ireland in February 2014
The ‘Other Doctor’ is the Doctor’s dark chapter, an _hitherto unknown incarnation whose existence he has spent centuries repressing, a secret he wants no one to know of. He is a relic of the past, part of the great Time War, when he spent centuries fighting alongside his fellow Time Lords against the Daleks and made the final decision to end it with a desperate act that cost that incarnation the right to use the name “Doctor”. This haunted and battle-worn Other Doctor is finally forgiven after helping find a new solution to end the war, giving the Eleventh Doctor a new purpose as he heads into further adventures.
The Other Doctor, as seen in the 50th anniversary episode: “The Day of the Doctor”. Ages 5+. Action Figure measures 5 inches tall.
