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. Over 100 brains were used in the course of the experiments. They were connected to an external artificial circulatory system and the fluids warmed. Scientists managed to keep their brains alive for over 36 hours.

Someone climbed the Varso Tower, the tallest building in Poland, and showed the panorama of Warsaw

Varso Tower is currently over 220 meters, but will eventually be 310 meters. This will make it taller than the German Commerzbank Tower, 300 meters high, and the British The Shard, 309 meters high. We are talking about total height here. As for the height to the roof, Varso will have 230 meters and 53 floors.

Coca-Cola presented its first eco-bottle made of ... paper

Limiting CO2 emissions to the atmosphere is already a standard among global concerns. Unfortunately, this is not enough to better care for the environment. That is why Coca-Cola decided to go a step further and use its customers to make itself a greener company and to give us the satisfaction that we are doing something important for Mother Nature.

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. In some countries this problem is smaller, in others it is huge and, according to the recently published report of the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee (EAC), Great Britain is among the leaders of the latter group.

As many as 1 billion people will be within the range of the super-fast 5G network by the end of this year

Although many analysts suggest that the implementation of the 5G network has clearly slowed down and will continue to slow down due to the classic adaptation course and the coronavirus pandemic, Ericsson still believes that in about 5 years as much as 60% of the world's population will be able to enjoy the new connectivity technology. In its latest Mobility Report, published this week, the telecommunications giant estimates that by the end of this year, we will reach approximately 220 million subscriptions for 5G services worldwide, and at the same time, 1 billion people will be within the network's reach.

Denmark wants to be organic. The country is ending offshore oil and gas extraction

Denmark has long talked about the need to fight climate change and reach for solutions that are better for our planet, setting an example for other countries. Even if it means abandoning much of its tradition related to fossil fuels, because, according to the Press Association and Greenpeace, the Danish parliament has just voted to end oil and gas production in the North Sea by 2025. Thus, it cancels and revokes all exploration and production permits in order to complete the mining works that are currently underway in the coming years.

Forget consoles for Christmas. You will have a lot more fun with these board games!

The more so that in the face of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which very often forces us to be even more dependent on electronics and technology, sometimes it's good to reset with something more analog. Board games are one of the best options, so we will try to convince you of this hobby by presenting noteworthy titles, both for beginners who are just starting their adventure with this world, and more experienced players. Or maybe you think that board games are not for you, because it's fun for the youngest or just plain boring?

Ocean trenches are the best way to combat plastic in the oceans

The reason we find it difficult to track plastic litter contaminating water bodies is that once it enters the oceans, it is subjected to forces that break it down into tiny fragments called microplastics that measure less than 5mm. As you can easily guess, their monitoring is practically impossible, although new research sheds some light on the matter, showing what role ocean ditches can play in the movement of plastic waste in the oceans. Scientists focused on the Kuril-Kamchatka Riv in the northwestern Pacific, which is 9,750 meters deep, from where eight sediment samples were collected during the 2016 expedition.

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.
