Alligator Blood can be used to develop powerful new antibiotics
Chemists in Louisiana, US, have found that the blood of alligators can be used to develop powerful new antibiotics, which can also deplete and destroy a significant amount of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. ANI

Biologists find first lungless frog
Biologists have found the first recorded species of frog that breathes without lungs in a clear, cold-water stream on the island of Borneo in Indonesia. ANI

Scientists spot galaxy emitting higher number of X-rays than thought possible
Scientists working with XMM-Newton have spotted a rare type of galaxy that emits a higher number of X-rays than thought possible, thus giving a new insight into the powerful processes that shape galaxies during their formation and evolution.The discovery came about when scientists working with XMM-Newton were looking into the furthest reaches of the universe, at celestial objects called quasars, which are vast cosmic engines that pump energy into their surroundings. ANI

The highest-powered laser in the world fires up
The Texas Petawatt laser in the US has managed to reach greater than one petawatt of laser power, making it the highest-powered laser in the world. ANI

Nanotube transistor concept for a better computer storage
Three scientists at Nano-Science Center and the Niels Bohr Institute have come up with a new concept that may revolutionise the way information is stored on computers, i.e. open the door to a means to store data much faster and more accurately. ANI

Soon, mobile phones could be used as surrogate debit cards
Your mobile phone lets you stay connected to your loved ones, take snapshots wherever you want, listen to your favourite tunes and even surf the Internet. Now, the same wireless is going to offer you more by getting transformed into a debit card. ANI

Indo-Pak nuclear war would create a near-global ozone hole

Scientists derive green gasoline from plant matter
Scientists at University of Massachusetts-Amherst have announced the creation of gasoline from plant matter, with almost no carbon footprint. ANI

Astronomers discover look-alike of our solar system
Astronomers have discovered a planetary system orbiting a distant star that can be described as the look-alike of our solar system. ANI

Nanoparticle self-assembly model offers hope for improved IT, tissue engineering in future
A researcher of Indian origin at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) is working in collaboration with scientists at Carnegie Mellon University to improve technologies used in tissue engineering and information technology. ANI
