  • Statement on NSF and SpaceX Radio Spectrum Coordination Agreement
    on June 5, 2019 at 1:22 pm

    In late May, SpaceX launched its first 60 Starlink satellites into orbit. SpaceX plans to launch a much larger satellite constellation into low-Earth orbit with the goal of providing terrestrial internet service. The operation of these satellites will utilize frequencies that neighbor some radio astronomy assets in the 10.6 - 10.7 GHz band. SpaceX coordinated with NSF and its radio astronomy observatories regarding potential interference from their use of the radio spectrum. After working ...

  • Scientists develop 'mini-brain' model of human prion disease
    on June 14, 2019 at 3:19 pm

    Scientists have used human skin cells to create what they believe is the first cerebral organoid system, or 'mini-brain,' for studying sporadic Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD). CJD is a fatal neurodegenerative brain disease of humans believed to be caused by infectious prion protein. The researchers hope the human organoid model will enable them to evaluate potential CJD therapeutics and provide greater detail about human prion disease subtypes. […]

  • Many choices seems promising until you actually have to choose
    on June 13, 2019 at 7:37 pm

    People faced with more options than they can effectively consider want to make a good decision, but feel they're unable to do so, according to the results of a novel study. Despite the apparent opportunities presented by a lot of options, the need to choose creates a 'paralyzing paradox,' according to the authors. 'You want to make a good choice, but feel like you can't.' […]

  • Gut microbes eat our medication
    on June 13, 2019 at 6:36 pm
