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.
