Scientists Successfully Create Diamonds Out of Bottle Plastic

In the experiment, a thin sheet of simple PET plastic was shot with a laser. The strong laser flashes that hit the foil-like material sample briefly heated it up to 6000 degrees Celsius and thus generated a shock wave that compressed the matter to millions of times the atmospheric pressure for a few nanoseconds. The …

Chinese scientists successfully created the world's first mammal with fully reprogrammed genes

Chinese scientists successfully created the world’s first mammal with fully reprogrammed genes

Chinese scientists have successfully recombined a mouse’s chromosomes to create the world’s first mammal with fully reprogrammed genes. Using the gene-editing tool CRISPR, researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in Beijing broke down the chromosomes into different segments and rearranged them in different combinations to create a new package of genes, resulting in …
