Key Tech for Quantum Communications Offered by Implanting Diamonds with Flaws

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Other than their purity, flaws in Diamonds may be holding the key to a new type of communications with high security. Diamonds were used by researchers to preserve fragile quantum information over long distances. Princeton University researchers are using diamonds to help create a communication network that relies on a property of subatomic particles known as their...

Collision with Milky Way Ripped ‘Sausage’ Galaxy into Shreds 8-10 Billion Years Ago

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – An unknown dwarf galaxy, dubbed ‘Sausage’ galaxy, smashed into our own Milky Way Galaxy around 8 to 10 billion years ago, a team of astronomers suggests. The dwarf galaxy did not survive the impact: it quickly fell apart, and the wreckage is now all around us.“The collision ripped the dwarf to shreds, leaving its stars moving in very radial orbits that...

Clean Energy Maybe Answer To Fight Climate Warming, Future Air Pollution

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – New study suggests that the increased use of air conditioning systems could add to the climate warming problems and degrading air quality in the further and the answer to fight it maybe more eco-friendly energy sources. As climate change continues to push summer temperatures ever higher, the increased use of air conditioning in buildings could add to the problems...

Bacteria Can ‘Divide and Conquer’ to Vanquish Their Enemies

Bacteria Can ‘Divide and Conquer’ to Vanquish Their Enemies

TEHRAN (Press Shia) - Some bacteria can release toxins that provoke their neighbors into attacking each other, a tactic that could be exploited to fight infections. Bacteria often engage in 'warfare' by releasing toxins or other molecules that damage or kill competing strains. This war for resources occurs in most bacterial communities, such as those living naturally in our gut or those...

Obesity, Aging Linked to Alzheimer’s Markers in The Brain

TEHRAN (Press Shia) - A new study suggests that when a high-fat, high-sugar diet that leads to obesity is paired with normal aging, it may contribute to the development of Alzheimer's disease. In addition, researchers discovered that certain areas of the brain respond differently to risk factors associated with Alzheimer's. The study is published in Physiological Reports.Alzheimer's...

Astronomers Find Best Evidence Yet for Alien Life on Saturn’s Moon

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Large organic molecules blasted into space from deep-sea vents on one of Saturn's moons show that it contains "all of the basic requirements for life as we know it”. Plumes of material from cracks in Enceladus' icy surface were sampled by Nasa spacecraft Cassini, shortly before it plunged to its death in Saturn’s atmosphere.A study of this data...

Scientists Discover How Antiviral Gene Works

TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) - It's been known for years that humans and other mammals possess an antiviral gene called RSAD2 that prevents a remarkable range of viruses from multiplying. Now, researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, part of Montefiore, have discovered the secret to the gene's success: The enzyme it codes for generates a compound that stops viruses from...
