Experts make efforts to restore communication with Foton-M research satellite

Experts have been trying to restore communication with the Foton-M research satellite that so far fails to receive commands from the Earth, the Mission Control Centre (MCC) outside Moscow told Itar-Tass on Thursday. 

“We currently receive telemetric data from Foton, however, we cannot transmit commands from the Earth to the satellite so far, that is we have only one-way connection. Experts are now trying to restore the communication.”

Εφτιαξαν θανατηφόρα γρίπη στην Κίνα ....υβριδικό στέλεχος του ιού που δημιουργήθηκε από κινέζους ερευνητές

Την έντονη αντίδραση επιστημόνων από όλο τον κόσμο προκάλεσε η δημιουργία ενός νέου θανατηφόρου στελέχους της γρίπης που κατασκεύασαν προσχεδιασμένα στο εργαστήριο κινέζοι ερευνητές. Αν και το πείραμα που έκαναν δεν ξέφυγε από τα επιστημονικά όρια, όπως ισχυρίζονται οι ίδιοι, οι συνάδελφοί τους προειδοποιούν πως «η δημιουργία και μόνο ενός τόσο επιθετικού στελέχους θέτει το πείραμα εκτός των ορίων ασφάλειας για τον παγκόσμιο πληθυσμό».
Η κατασκευή νέων ιών στο εργαστήριο είναι μια συνήθης τακτική και χρησιμοποιείται ώστε να «προβλεφθεί η φύση». Η τακτική που ακολουθείται σε τέτοιου είδους πειράματα είναι να προσπαθήσουν να προβλέψουν την εξελικτική πορεία ενός στελέχους ιού μέσα στη φύση για τα επόμενα πέντε χρόνια, να δημιουργήσουν το αντίστοιχο στο εργαστήριο, ώστε ακολούθως να φτιάξουν και το αντιιικό φάρμακο ή εμβόλιο για να αποφευχθεί πανδημία με πολλούς νεκρούς. Ο τελικός στόχος δηλαδή είναι η πρόληψη.

Naissance de moutons génétiquement modifiés phosphorescents en Uruguay

Un groupe de scientifiques uruguayens, en partenariat avec l'Institut Pasteur de Montevideo, a annoncé mercredi 24 avril la naissance de moutons génétiquement modifiés phosphorescents. "La transgenèse sur cette espèce n'était pas disponible en Amérique latine et cette réussite positionne l'Uruguay au plus haut niveau scientifique mondial", se sont félicités l'Institut de reproduction animale Uruguay (IRAUy) et l'Institut Pasteur dans un communiqué.

Nés en octobre 2012 à l'IRAUy, les animaux se sont développés normalement, sans présenter de différences avec leurs homologues non-transgéniques, a indiqué Alejo Menchaca, président de l'Institut.

Ξεκίνησε το πείραμα στον Bion-M1

Ο επιστημονικός εξοπλισμός στον δορυφόρο «Bion-M1» ενεργοποιήθηκε και λειτουργεί κανονικά, ενώ οι «επιβάτες» της συσκευής – μογγολικοί γερβίλοι, ποντίκια – για πρώτη φορά μετά την εκτόξευση έλαβαν τροφή, ανέφερε ο αναπληρωτής του επιστημονικού διευθυντή της αποστολής καθηγητής Γιεβγκένι Ιλίν.

Ο δορυφόρος «Bion-M1», η πρώτη από το 2007 ρωσική συσκευή βιολογικών ερευνών στο διάστημα, εκτοξεύθηκε σήμερα Παρασκευή από το κοσμοδρόμιο του Μπαϊκονούρ.

Florida scientists prepare to release hundreds of thousands of genetically modified mosquitoes

Hundreds of thousands of mutated mosquitoes could soon be unleashed in Florida, but don’t worry: scientists say they have a plan.
It might sound like something out of a low-budget horror film, but the US Food and Drug Administration really is considering whether or not they should allow scientists to send thousands upon thousands of genetically altered insects into the wild.
If all goes as planned, mosquitos modified by some serious Frankenstein treatment will be introduced into the Florida Keys and ideally mate with skeeters that carry the deadly dengue fever, passing along in the process a fatal birth defect that will hopefully eradicate the offspring before birth. From there, scientists say they expect the population of Aedes aegypti mosquitoes infected with the dangerous disease will be decimated in only a few generations without causing any major implications for the native ecosystem.
