Dark matter is older than the Big Bang and is outside the universe

Until now, astronomers have focused on everything that happened in our universe after the Big Bang. Meanwhile, scientists from the United States have done research that has shown us something that happened before everything was created. It's hard to comprehend, because with the Big Bang there was time and space, so how could anything have been before ?!

The Japanese showed more rock samples from an alien celestial body

In the latest photos published by the Japanese Space Agency on its Twitter profile, we can see the interior of the container, which contains a lot of coal-black dust obtained from the surface of the Ryugu asteroid by the Hayabusa-2 probe. In fact, there are several hundred milligrams of dust, which is not much, but for scientists this amount is enough to analyze and unravel many mysteries related to this object, as well as the history of the solar system's evolution and the appearance of life on our planet.

This is what the transport of a 67 meter long wind turbine rotor blade looks like

The Luxembourg company P. Adams Schwertransporte showed on its Facebook profile how turbine components are transported through the towns. It is a very complicated endeavor and it is not intended for the faint of heart.

Scientists made the paralyzed mice walk again. What about us?

The team first developed a signaling protein and inserted it into the brains of paralyzed animals, stimulating their nerve cells to regenerate, and has now shared the recipe for its creation with the entire scientific community. Spinal cord injuries are one of the most debilitating, damaged nerve fibers, or axons, are then unable to transmit signals between the brain and muscles, which often results in lower limb paralysis. What's worse, the condition is permanent because the nerve fibers cannot regenerate, or at least until recently.

A fire at the world's largest vaccine factory. CoVID-19 vaccines were produced there

Five people died in the fire and dozens were evacuated. The fire appeared in the new buildings of the Serum Institute, where the production of CoVID-19 vaccines from the British AstraZeneca or the American Novavax was to begin. These are vector specifics and are not based on mRNA technology like the Pfizer, BioNTech or Moderna vaccines.

Biden nominates a supporter of net neutrality as head of the FCC. There will be more censorship

Donald Trump and his team lifted net neutrality in 2017. Although at first glance it may seem that they have committed an attempt on the freedom of the global network, they have in fact tore the power over it from the hands of such giants as Facebook, Google, Amazon and Twitter and handed it to Internet service providers (ISPs).

Elon Musk offers $ 100 million for technology to reduce CO2 levels in the atmosphere

Musk has assets currently valued at $ 200 billion. Of course, practically the entire amount is invested in many companies and projects, but the head of SpaceX has a lot of blackheads, amounting to at least $ 100 million, which he will gladly invest in technologies that will help our planet breathe from human activity. Such an idea should come as no surprise, if we don't do anything about the climate, all Musk's projects will collapse before they are even created, because there will be no one to use them.

Vaccinations have saved 37 million children worldwide in the last 20 years

Without access to certain vaccinations, such as those to protect against measles, rotavirus, HPV and hepatitis B virus, children born in 2019 are 45% more likely to die before the age of 5 than vaccinated children. Even for adults, the difference in mortality between unvaccinated and vaccinated people is huge - the new model shows that children born in 2019 will experience a 72% lower risk of lifetime mortality if vaccinated against these diseases. It is true that such accurate calculations are very expensive and have a certain margin of error, but human life is at stake, so scientists do their best to be as accurate as possible.

IBM has made a breakthrough in quantum computers. "Now they are 100 times faster"

The American giant boasts that the new technology can significantly speed up calculations. Now they will not last months, but hours. This all sounds great, but how did IBM do it? Well, engineers have discovered a way to combine Qskit's work environment with clastic quantum data processing.
