First sea surface map out from NASA

First sea surface map out from NASA

Jason-3, a new U.S.-European oceanography satellite mission with NASA participation, has produced its first complete science map of global sea surface height, capturing the current signal of the 2015-16 El Niño. The first Jason-3 global map can be viewed at: http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/spaceimages/details.php?id=pia20532 The map was generated from the first 10 days of data collected once Jason-3 […]

What if ordinary skin cells could kill cancer?

What if ordinary skin cells could kill cancer?

Dr. Shinya Yamanaka won a Nobel Prize for his work with induced pluripotent stem cells. Based on that singular research, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill pharmacy scientists have transformed ordinary skin cells into cancer-hunting stem cells that are able to destroy glioblastoma. The UNC team say their experimental medical research may someday provide […]
