Prospects for life in solar system are good as amino acids and water ice seem ubiquitous in asteroid belt and nearing a dozen subsurface liquid ocean worlds  

There is evidence for subsurface oceans within nearly a dozen bodies (planets, asteroids and moons) in the solar system. Jupiter's Europa, Saturn's Enceladus and Titan have the strongest evidence.The Asteroid Ceres has joined Mars and several satellites of the giant planets in the list of locations in the solar system that may harbor life. The dwarf planet has water. Now, infrared spectra taken from the orbiting Dawn spacecraft reveal organic-rich regions in and around its ~50-kilometer

China could triple space science spending and has several startup rocket companies as well  

Though the exact value of China's spending on its space programs remains shrouded in secrecy, many analysts peg its civilian space budget at around $3 billion annually in recent years, a fraction of the $19.3 billion the United States allocated to NASA in 2016. There a push within China's government to triple spending on space science (from $700 million to $2.1 billion) as well as the emergence of a small but growing group of privately backed space start-ups suggest that both Chinese ind

Technology for upgrading slums and lowering the cost of housing by 30%  

New technologies, including better land mapping, prefabricated construction and cheaper solar power, have begun bringing the costs of housing down 20 percent to 30 percent, say experts.At the low end of the scale, the changes may be most significant: There is a new market developing to serve 200 million households in slums in emerging markets.A third of urban dwellers—1.6 billion people—could struggle to secure decent housing by 2025.

Automated collision avoidance and driver assistance will help Tesla model 3 drivers avoid 9 out of 10 accidents  

Driver-assist hardware and software included in the Model 3 will make the $35,000 car 10 times safer than the average car.Both Tesla and NHTSA assert that safety is also higher when Autopilot is activated. So, Model 3 customers who upgrade to the full Enhanced Autopilot, which includes automatic lane changes, steering, and parking, the ability to "summon" the vehicle short distances, and more, will likely benefit from even a higher level safety -- and this seems to be the safety Morgan

CRISPR/Cas9 Reveals Cancer's Synthetic Lethal Vulnerabilities   

The CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing system has been used to identify more than 120 synthetic-lethal gene interactions in cancer cells. These interactions could guide drug developers to new combination therapies that could selectively kill cancer cells and spare healthy cells.Synthetic-lethal gene interactions may occur when certain pairs of mutated genes are present. When there is a mutation in either of these genes within a cell, the cell remains viable. But when there are mutations in both genes, th

The team at Erasmus University Medical Center, in the Netherlands, are planning human trials for what they hope is a treatment for old age. A UK scientist said the findings were "impossible to dismiss", but that unanswered questions remained. The approach works by flushing out retired or "senescent" cells in the body that have stopped dividing. They tested it on mice that
