Meta DNA Makes Revolutionizes DNA Nanotechnology By Scaling Up Size By 1000 to 1 Million Times

The new meta-DNA self-assembly concept may totally transform the microscopic world of structural DNA nanotechnology. Decades ago a huge milestone in DNA technology was the invention of DNA origami, where a long single-stranded DNA is folded into designated shapes with the help of hundreds of short DNA staple strands. DNA nanotechnology had challenges assembling larger (micron to millimeter) sized DNA …

Astronomers Found Unusual Activity on a “Centaur” Planetary Object

Make A Wish A team of scientists tracked down a distant Centaur, or a planet-like space rock that orbits deep between Jupiter and Neptune, and finally made sense of its unusual, comet-like behavior. Centaurs are particularly elusive due to their distant, highly-irregular orbits. As a result, active Centaurs — those that show comet-like behavior like creating off bright tails — …
