Scientists have revived their severed pig heads. Their brains functioned without bodies

Experiments to keep the brain working outside the body have so far been carried out in pigs, but scientists say they are in the process of being prepared to conduct them on other animals.

Great Britain urges technology giants to fight e-waste

We would like to remind you that e-waste, or electrowaste, is used electrical and electronic equipment that cannot be thrown away together with other rubbish, because it contains many harmful substances. The rules of dealing with electrowaste and its recovery are regulated by national and European Union regulations.

Korean artificial sun has set a new world record for plasma maintenance

The Chinese recently boasted of launching their new nuclear fusion reactor, the HL-2M (EAST project), and producing plasma, and now their achievements have been eclipsed by the Koreans. KSTAR is much more advanced and efficient. Scientists conducted an experiment in which they managed to create a plasma with a temperature of over 100 million degrees Celsius and hold it for 20 seconds.
