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.

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.

BioNTech has created a breakthrough mRNA vaccine against devastating disease

Many eminent scientists believe that the key to developing new specifics for the world's most dangerous diseases is mRNA technology, i.e. template RNA. After the vaccine / drug has been applied, it allows human cells to be printed with specific code that reprograms them so that they perform specific functions exactly as we want them to.

Today, SpaceX is preparing the flight of the SN9 prototype of the Starship ship, and soon the SN10 will also fly

Currently, there are already two prototypes in the facility, namely SN9 and SN10, and more versions are being assembled in a nearby factory.

Australia plans the world's largest powerbank, Tesla is lagging behind

Australia has been experimenting with renewable energy for years and is doing great, but proper energy storage is essential for the efficient use of such forms. No wonder that it was there, and more specifically in South Australia, that Tesla built its 150-megawatt powerbank in 2018, and then announced plans to build another, even larger one, at the end of last year. We are talking about the Victorian Big Battery Megapack with a capacity of 300 MW and a capacity of 450 MWh, which is three times the size of the first project, because then we were talking about a power bank with a capacity of 100 megawatts and a capacity of 130 megawatt hours (it was only later expanded to 150 MW).

Hyundai unveils the TIGER X-1, a futuristic vehicle for the exploration of the Moon and Mars

NASA has plans to send large vehicles to the Silver Globe and the Red Planet. Astronauts could explore the surface of these mysterious worlds in a much faster and easier way. But let's start from the beginning. Two years ago, the company unveiled the concept of Elevate, a multi-purpose vehicle designed in particular to help on Earth.
