Japanese astronomers discover 83 quasars created up to 13 BILLION years

Japanese astronomers discover 83 quasars created up to 13 BILLION years ago and two discs of space dust circling around a distant Sun-like star where new planets may be forming

Japanese astronomers have made two new discoveries using some of the most powerful telescopes in the world, according to Daily Mail. 

The Subaru Telescope in Hawaii discovered 83 quasars powered by supermassive black holes (SMBHs) in the early universe.

Another team of experts used ALMA, located in Chile, and found sites where young planets may in two discs of space dust orbiting a young star similar to our Sun.

An Important Scientific Precedent for Syrian Researchers at the Global Level in the Field of Energy

An Optimal Photovoltaic Conversion System for Future Smart Grids

Scientific research related to environment affairs has received great attention at present due to the importance of preserving Earth from the different pollutants that cause the global warming. Therefore, specialists and researchers sought to generate electricity depending on other sources which are different from those existed in the ground. These sources are derived mainly from the sources of energy which are available in nature such as wind and sun. These natural resources are considered Energy-efficient, inexpensive and do not cause pollution to the environment.

That's FarFarOut, Most distant object in the solar system is spotted by scientists more than 140 times farther from the sun than Earth

The most distant object in the solar system has been spotted by scientists in the depths of space - far beyond Pluto.

The faint object is located approximately 140 times further away from the sun than the distance between our star and Earth - known as an astronomical unit (AU).

It has been dubbed 'FarFarOut' by its discoverers who admit to knowing very little about the object they accidentally discovered while searching for Planet X, according to Daily Mail.

Platinum nanoparticles for selective treatment of liver cancer cells

In recent years, the number of targeted cancer drugs has continued to rise. However, conventional chemotherapeutic agents still play an important role in cancer treatment. These include platinum-based cytotoxic agents that attack and kill cancer cells. But these agents also damage healthy tissue and cause severe side effects. Researchers at ETH Zurich have now identified an approach that allows for a more selective cancer treatment with drugs of this kind, according to Science Daily.

Dinosaur-like beast called 'Smok' that lived 210 million years ago crushed and ate BONES like a hyena to feast on salt and marrow

A dinosaur-like reptile that lived 210 million years ago used to crush and eat bones like hyenas, for salt and marrow, according to Daily Mail.

Fossil droppings of the Smok wawelski seem to contain chewed-up bone fragments, researchers have found.

The Smok wawelski is in the archosaur family, who are represented today by crocodiles.

Researchers at Uppsala University in Sweden concluded that the predator was eating bones for salt and marrow.

This behaviour is typically linked to mammals rather than reptiles. Most predatory dinosaurs used their teeth to feed on flesh, rather than crushing bones.
