Towing icebergs to Cape Town is a poor way to halt water crisis

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) - пт, 2018-05-11 20:00
Hauling chunks of polar ice to dry regions to provide fresh water sounds tempting but there are many reasons to reject it, says Olive Heffernan

Utterly bizarre theoretical ‘fractons’ could be made for real

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) - пт, 2018-05-11 17:19
A fracton is a weird imaginary half-particle, and can only move when paired with another fracton. It sounds wild but we could make one in a crystal

Trolley problem tested in real life for first time with mice

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) - пт, 2018-05-11 13:40
Would you kill someone to save five others? The first lab enactment of this classic thought experiment raises issues for how we programme self-driving cars

Feedback: Uranus smells like farts, say astronomers

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) - пт, 2018-05-11 12:00
But how do you sniff a planet 3 billion km away? Also: women overestimate how often men make a move, sonic blast destoys stock exchange, and more

Stem cells may reveal how Neanderthal DNA works in modern humans

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) - пт, 2018-05-11 11:00
Many of us carry DNA inherited from Neanderthals, but we can’t be sure how it affects us. Stem cells with Neanderthal DNA could tell us

Treeconomics: How to put a fair price tag on urban forests

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) - пт, 2018-05-11 10:45
We can now calculate the exact value of a tree, from shade to beauty. Doing so could be the best way to protect them – and plan the forests of the future
