10 amazing science discoveries & breakthrough 2017
The other name of science is discoveries. 2017 was the very best year for the science. Science got so many new things in 2017 and discover a huge collection of things for the people benefit. In this race, every field has major collaborations.
The Following 10 major discoveries of science 2017:
10: CRISPR GENE EDITING
Scientist in the U.S. edited genes inside the human body. Gene editing may allow us to eliminate genetic diseases, and maybe even create a new class of “Super Humans“.
9: NEW WAY TO FIND WATER IN THE DESERT
Researchers came up with a device that pulls water out of thin air. The invention will help areas with little access to clean water, including many places in Africa.
8: REGENERATIVE MEDICINE
Major strides were made in growing human tissue and even organs in a tab. These breakthroughs could let us repair nerve damage and grow entire organs and limbs.
7: A NEW ERA OF ASTRONOMY
Astronomers have detected gravitational waves formed when two stars collided. For the first time, they observed the neutron star crash 130 million light-years away.
6: NEW SUPERCONDUCTOR
Harvard physicists turned liquid hydrogen into metal. Metallic hydrogen has no resistance, can give us high-speed trains and improve rocketry.
5: OLD-SCHOOL SCI-FI GETS REAL
SpaceX relaunched a recycled rocket making space travel even cheaper. Reusing a Falcon 9 rocket booster can save over $18 million per launch.
4: QUANTUM BREAKTHROUGH
Physicists created time crystals, an entirely new form of matter. The crystals are so unique and exotic, even scientists can’t understand their full potential yet.
3: SUPER-EARTH LHS 1140B
Scientist found a planet beyond our solar system where life could exist. The exoplanet orbiting a quiet red star in our galactic neighborhood holds the best hope for alien life so far.
2: GOOGLE’S ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Researchers at DeepMind taught Artifical Intelligence AI to navigate complex environments. It may look goofy to us, but it’s a major step forward in making self-governing robots.
1: MOTHERLESS BIRTH
Scientists grew a lamb in an artificial womb. This uterus imitation would lower the mortality and disease rates of premature babies.
There are many others discoveries of science.
