America’s Newest Sport – Googlewhacking

Google’s index of web pages is generally regarded as the largest of all the major search engines. This means that for most searches, it’s not uncommon for Google to report millions or even tens of millions of pages containing your search terms.

Monkey Eggs – An Alternative to Cloning

Using a special chemical trigger, scientists said on Thursday they had tricked a monkey’s egg cell into forming an early embryo without benefit of sperm, and said the process might offer an acceptable alternative to cloning as a source of new medical treatments.

The tiny monkey embryo yielded stem cells, the master cells that scientists believe will one day be a source of tissues, organs and other treatments for conditions ranging from diabetes to a broken neck.

Number of Habitable Planets Increased

How many potentially habitable planets are there? New calculations by Lineweaver and Daniel Grether, both of the University of New South Wales in Australia, provide an encouraging answer to this question. The researchers expect a flood of Jupiters will be found, perhaps 50 percent more than currently expected. This work supports the notion that the human race cannot survive if all humans only live on one planet.
