Malaria and bacteraemia in African children

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Science News

It has been suspected that there is a strong correlation between Malarial infection and an individual to bacterial infection. However there is yet to be a proof of a direct cause. The bacteria is particullarly associated with Gram-negative bacteria in particular non-typhoidal salmonella infections. The investigation was undertaken in Kenya and Anothony Scott noticed that […]

Recently, the European particle physics laboratory, CERN released some results from a 3 year experiment, timing how long neutrinos (a type of subatomic particle) take to travel the distance between CERN, near Geneva, Switzerland and Italy’s Gran Sasso National laboratory, Opera where they were detected. On average it appears that they are travelling faster than […]

Comet Hartley 2 has been found to have H2O with proportions of deuterium (an isotope of Hydrogen) similar to that of our own oceans. This, compared with most comets which have double the fraction of this isotope, supports the theory that comets contributed to earth’s water as well as asteroid collisions in this planet’s creation.

Saul Perlmutter, Adam Riess and Brian Schmidt have been awarded the Nobel Prize in physics for the discovery that our Universe’s expansion is accelerating.The red shift of supernovas were studied and it was found that more distant supernovas were speeding up relative to closer ones. This phenomenon could possibly be explained by the existance of […]
