BUFFALO, New York (PNN) - August 18, 2017 - Imagine someone remotely controlling your brain, forcing your body’s central processing organ to send messages to your muscles that you didn’t authorize. It’s an incredibly scary thought, but scientists have managed to accomplish this science fiction nightmare for real, albeit on a much smaller scale, and they were even able to prompt their test subject to run, freeze in place, or even completely lose control over its limbs. Thankfully, the research will be used for good rather than evil… for now.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (PNN) - August 7, 2017 - Scientists have hailed a breakthrough technology capable of regrowing damaged organs and healing serious wounds with the single touch of a penny-sized pad.

The new device uses nanochips to reprogram skin cells, which then generate any type of cell necessary for medical treatment.

Scientists discover "angel particle" that is its own antiparticle

PALO ALTO, Kalifornia (PNN) - July 20, 2017 - Every fundamental particle in the universe has an antiparticle, which has the same mass but the opposite charge. If a particle should ever meet its antiparticle, the two would annihilate each other in a flash of energy. But it's long been theorized that there's an exception to the rule, with certain particles that are actually their own antiparticles. Now, scientists from Stanford and the University of Kalifornia have found the first strong evidence for this type of particle, which they dub the "angel particle".

LOS ANGELES, Kalifornia (PNN) - July 24, 2017 - There’s this term in the processed food industry for when something is quantifiably at its most delicious, but also - critically - still unsatisfying enough that you always crave more. It’s called the bliss point, and it’s what ensures that you always want another sip of that soft drink, or another crunch of that potato chip. It’s about maximizing the bliss of consumption so that you consume more.

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (PNN) - July 12, 2017 - The future is here.

Well, almost. In February at the World Government Summit in Dubai, Chinese drone maker EHANG and Dubai's Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) announced a partnership to produce an autonomous aerial vehicle (AAV) - know as the EHANG184 - to aid in Dubai's efforts to build the world's most intelligent transportation system.

TIJERAS, New Mexico (PNN) - July 10, 2017 - While there’s something disconcerting about having Big Brother listening in on family feuds, there is something to be said about smart devices alerting the terrorist pig thug cops when simple arguments turn into domestic disputes. The latter is what occurred at a home in New Mexico earlier this week, and authorities believe it may have played a life-saving role.

GENEVA, Switzerland (PNN) - July 7, 2017 - The Large Hadron Collider has once again done what it does best - smash bits of matter together and find new particles in the carnage.

This time physicists have come across a real charmer. It's four times heavier than a proton and could help challenge some ideas about how this kind of matter sticks together.

SHANGHAI, China (PNN) - July 1, 2016 - For the first time, scientists have successfully teleported a photon from the ground to a satellite in orbit.

It’s been 20 years since quantum scientists successfully teleported a photon over 10 miles, proving that quantum entanglement - a process that Albert Einstein called “spooky action at a distance” - was possible.
