The demon surgeon of Fleet Street?

A surgeon in the UK lost his medical license after authorities discovered he had branded his initials into two patients' livers using an argon beam machine. The grisly signatures were exposed when another surgeon operated on a failed transplant. Turning this into a story, what if a state coroner discovers a series of messages etched onto transplanted […]

Octopuses came from space?

A paper titled Cause of Cambrian Explosion – Terrestrial or Cosmic? puts forth a rather weird conclusion: that comets seeded life on Earth. Published in 2018, it says: “life may have been seeded here on Earth by life-bearing comets as soon as conditions on Earth allowed it to flourish (about or just before 4.1 Billion years ago); and […]

To see a camera in a grain of sand…

2021 might go down as the year of “meta.” Facebook changed its name, there’s talk of the metaverse, and now, we have the metasurface. In Neural nano-optics for high-quality lens imaging, published in Nature, researchers describe the metasurface as a combination of the nano-optic surface that interacts with light and a machine-learning algorithm that produces clear images.

Reproducing, living robots?

Xenobots are small blobs created from frog stem cells scientists first created in 2020. They’re not traditional robots—there’s no metal, and they’re tiny. Instead, xenobots are more like programmable organisms and can be used to clean up radioactive waste or plastics in oceans. Scientists already knew that xenobots could move, work in groups, and self-heal. Now, xenobots […]

Will space junk be the next big problem?

In 1978, NASA scientist Donald Kessler proposed a scenario where low-Earth orbit becomes so crowded that a series of collisions begins, leading to still more crashes from the resulting debris. Fast forward to 2021, and it’s looking a lot more like this could become a reality. More satellites than ever go into space, most notably Elon Musk’s Starlink […]
