The International Conference on Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine The Vaal University of Technology is hosting The International Conference on Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (ICTERM) this week. The conference will cover areas such as recent advances, challenges and breakthroughs in the field of tissue engineering.  Simply put, Tissue Engineering is the creation of spare human parts. Scientifically, it is the science of design and manufacturing of new tissues for the functional restoration of impaired organs and replacement of lost parts due to cancer, disease, and trauma. Without it, people across the world would not be able to be treated [...]

100 Billion Failed Stars New research, that was presented at the National Astronomy Meeting at the University of Hull on 6 July 2017, suggests that our galaxy contains as many as 100 billion brown dwarfs. Brown dwarfs are celestial objects that just didn’t have quite what it takes to become a fully-fledged star. Brown dwarfs are too hot and big to be considered planets, but at the same time, they are too small to be stars. Brown Dwarfs are a result of processes that normally lead to the formation of stars but because they lack the mass to sustain stable [...]

Graveyard of Giants Researchers in China have uncovered the skeletal remains of an unusually tall group of individuals who lived in China’s province some 5,000 years ago during the excavation of a 5000-year-old archaeological site. The archaeological dig at Jiaojia Villiage near Jinan City’s Zhangqiu District in Shandong. It is thought to have been a political, economic and cultural centre in its time with 104 houses, 205 graves and 20 sacrificial pits being unearthed. Among the homes, graves and sacrificial pits, various amounts of pottery and jade were found as well as several artefacts from the Longshan Culture, which was [...]
