Planet Nine could actually be a hidden 'primordial' black hole

  Planet Nine could actually be a hidden 'primordial' black hole A black hole hidden on the edge of our solar system could explain the evidence for an undiscovered ninth planet, according to new research. For more than a century some astronomers have suggested that the weird gravitational forces observed acting on distant bodies in the solar system were being caused by another planet.But despite what a team of astronomers from the US and UK calls the "growing body of observational anomalies" connected to distant objects in our solar system, Planet Nine has not been directly detected.

A spacecraft with vials of cow cells landed at the International Space Station in September. From there, cosmonauts fed the vials into a 3D printer. From there, they grow into a thin piece of steak . Those who've tasted the product say it leaves something to be desired, but it's meant to mimic the

While people on Earth may be marching into a meatless future, astronauts exploring outer space still have to eat real animal protein, per NASA’s nutrition recommendations.

Perhaps that’s why scientists are looking for ways to “grow” real meat in space—by mimicking the natural process of muscle tissue regeneration inside an animal’s body.

Last month, a collaboration among four companies from Israel, Russia and the U.S. produced the first ever “space beef steak” inside the International Space Station. Using bovine cells harvested on Earth, scientists grew them into small-scale muscle tissue using a 3D bioprinter under controlled micro-gravity conditions.

The lack of gravity on board the International Space Station will be used to encourage the stem cells to grow into tissue in three dimensions, rather than the single-layer Scientists are still not sure why the conditions of the International Space Station lead to the assembly of complex 3D tissue structures.

The experiment was led by Israeli startup Aleph Farms with support from Russian biotech company 3D Bioprinting Solutions and U.S.-based Meal Source Technologies and Finless Foods.

But unlike the plant-based formulas pioneered by companies like Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, Aleph Farms specializes in “cell-grown” meat, which not only tastes like meat, but is also chemically identical to real flesh.

“In space, we don’t have 10,000 or 15,000 liters of water available to produce one kilogram of beef,” Aleph Farms CEO Didier Toubia said in a press release on Monday. “This joint experiment marks a significant first step toward achieving our vision to ensure food security for generations to come, while preserving our natural resources.”

Interstellar comet starts coming into focus

  Interstellar comet starts coming into focus Early looks at the newfound object are offering astronomers exciting glimpses at rare material from another star system.Now, as large telescopes around the world turn their gaze toward Borisov, astronomers are beginning to glean tantalizing clues about the comet’s composition and its track through the heavens. Each new data point reveals a bit more about the chemistry of Borisov’s home star system and, in turn, how unique our own solar system is within the cosmos.

On Earth, Aleph Farms is a leading the way for cell-grown meat as well. Last December, it successfully produced a “strip steak” in a lab in just two weeks. The company said it was in talks with several restaurant chains about introducing its products to regular consumers as soon as 2021.

“We are proving that cultivated meat can be produced anytime, anywhere, in any condition,” Toubia told The Guardian on Monday. “We can potentially provide a powerful solution to produce the food closer to the population needing it, at the exact and right time it is needed.”

The Amelia Earhart Mystery Stays Down in the Deep .
For two weeks in August, a multimillion-dollar search from air, land and sea sought to solve the 80-year mystery of Amelia Earhart’s disappearance. Robert Ballard, the ocean explorer famous for locating the wreck of the Titanic, led a team that discovered two hats in the depths. It found debris from an old shipwreck. It even spotted a soda can. What it did not find was a single piece of the Lockheed Electra airplane flown in 1937 by Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan, which vanished during their doomed voyage around the world.Dr. Ballard and his crew don’t consider it a failure.
