Asteroid size of Empire State Building to pass Earth Saturday nightAfter an asteroid safely flew past Earth on Friday, another that's possibly larger than the Empire State building is expected to pass by Saturday night. 2000 QW7, the skyscraper-sized asteroid, should whiz past Early at 7:54 p.m. EST. NASA estimates the object to be 950 feet to 2,100 feet in size.

The nearly extinct white rhino might live on, thanks to lab-created embryosHumanity may be able to save the northern white rhino after all, thanks to scientists who managed to create two in vitro embryos. When Sudan, the last male northern white rhino left at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya, died in 2018, the two female rhinos Fatu and Najin were the only ones left of their species. Since they couldn't procreate, it seemed to be only a matter of time before the species would go extinct. But on Wednesday, there was a breakthrough. An international consortium of scientists announced that they'd successfully extracted immature eggs from Fatu and Najin, and then airlifted them to Avantea laboratory in Italy. When the eggs were ready for fertilization, they were injected with the sperm of two now-dead male northern white rhinos. Najin's eggs didn't make it, since the sample quality of the sperm used for her eggs was poor. But Fatu's fertilized eggs did develop into viable embryos, and were promptly frozen, according to a statement from the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research, one of the partners in the consortium. The two viable embryos will be transferred to a surrogate mother, since neither Najin nor Fatu can carry a pregnancy. > View this post on Instagram> > With Najin and Fatu, the last two northern white rhinos, unable to carry a pregnancy, the future of the northern white rhino species solely depends on artificial reproduction. Over the past few years, scientists have been working very hard on perfecting a procedure for both harvesting and fertilisation in vitro. The successful harvest of 10 eggs from the northern white rhinos yesterday (August 22nd, 2019) means that scientists are now closer to saving the species from complete extinction. @amivitale ---------------------------------------------- @kenyawildlifeservice @tourism_wildlifeke @leibnizizw @biorescue_project @bmbf.bund @leibnizgemeinschaft @safariparkdvurkralove OlPejeta NorthernWhiteRhino OvumPickUp NorthernWhiteRhinoRecovery NajinandFatu SaveOurRhinos OnlyTwoLeft EndExtinction> > A post shared by Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Kenya (@olpejeta) on Aug 23, 2019 at 1:57am PDTSEE ALSO: Sudan, the last male northern white rhino, dies aged 45"Five years ago it seemed like the production of a northern white rhino embryo was [an] almost unachievable goal -- and today we have them," Jan Stejskal, Director of Communication and International Projects from Dvůr Kralove Zoo, where Najin and Fatu were born, said in a statement. "The technique for collection of eggs was developed in cooperation with many European zoos and we are happy that this unique cooperation can continue even with attempts at successful embryo transfer." Moving forward, scientists must "optimize the process of transfer" of the embryos into a surrogate mother, and then carefully track the embryo's development into a fetus. The statement also called for additional funding and donations to "help to win our race against time," emphasizing the importance of saving biodiversity and taking "environmental responsibility." The northern white rhino, like other rhino species, was driven to near extinction because of poaching. Rhino horns are prized in parts of Asia, where they're believed to cure a variety of illnesses. The western black rhino went extinct in 2013 because of excessive poaching. The conservation group Save the Rhino says all five remaining rhino species are threatened in Africa and Asia. But the possibility of an IVF white rhino baby could change that."This development marks a turning point in the race to save the northern white rhino from near extinction," the Ol Pejeta Conservatory said in an Instagram post announcing the successful embryo creation.

SESAME synchrotron sheds new light on Middle Eastern science, history and politicsGeekWire's Alan Boyle reports on a $90 million science project with a diplomatic twist in Jordan, one of the stops on this summer's Middle East science tour.  ALLAN, Jordan — For Israeli researchers, SESAME could open up a path for finding out exactly what the frankincense mentioned in the Bible was made of. For Arab researchers, SESAME could reveal how the awe-inspiring structures built thousands of years ago at Jordan's Petra archaeological site were decorated. And what's nearly as awesome as the potential discoveries is the fact that Israelis and Arabs are working together at SESAME to make them. So… Read More

Speaking four or more languages could reduce the risk of dementia finds new studyNew Canadian research has found that having a strong ability for learning languages may help to reduce an individual's risk of developing dementia. Carried out by researchers at the University of Waterloo, the new study looked at 325 Roman Catholic nuns in the United States who were taking part in the larger, internationally recognized Nun Study, which is a longitudinal study of religious sisters aged 75 and over. The findings, published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, showed that just six percent of the nuns who spoke four or more languages developed dementia, compared to 31 percent of those who only spoke one language.

One fifth of injured US cyclists were not wearing a helmet finds new studyA new large-scale US study has found that around one in five cyclists who are injured while on their bike are not wearing a helmet, with men and ethnic minorities the least likely to wear a cycle helmet to protect themselves. Led by researchers at Charles R. Drew University of Medicine &Science, and the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, the new study looked at data from the 2002-2012 National Trauma Data Bank, which included information on 76,032 bicyclists (81.1 percent of whom were male and 18.9 percent female) with head or neck injury. The researchers found that of these cyclists, only 22 percent of adults wore a helmet.

Could drinking tea boost brain health?New research has found, for the first time, evidence to suggest that drinking tea could have a positive effect on the structure of the brain, possibly helping to protect against cognitive decline as we age. The participants were classified into two groups according to how much they drank green tea, oolong tea, and black tea around age 45 and now. All participants underwent neuropsychological tests and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to measure their cognitive functioning and look at their brain structure.

Bigelow Aerospace and NASA test earthly mockup of interplanetary space stationBigelow Aerospace opened up its ground-based prototype for a space station module — or perhaps even a Mars transport habitat — for inspection today at its headquarters in North Las Vegas. The open house centered on the Mars Transporter Testing Unit, an all-steel mockup of the company's expandable, fabric-covered B330 space module. For two weeks, a NASA-Bigelow team will be testing the suitability of the B330 concept for crewed deep-space missions. Bigelow's prototype is one of six ground-based demonstration projects funded as part of NASA's NextSTEP-2 program. The other companies building full-sized NextSTEP-2 prototypes for space habitats include Boeing, Lockheed… Read More
