The violent history of the big galaxy next door

Andromeda Galaxy (stock image). Credit: © Siggi / Adobe Stock Astronomers have pieced together the cannibalistic past of our neighbouring large galaxy Andromeda, which has now set its sights on the Milky Way as its next main course. The galactic detective work found that Andromeda has eaten several smaller galaxies, likely within the last few…

Nuclear explosion illustration (stock image). Credit: © Keith Tarrier / Adobe Stock A nuclear war between India and Pakistan could, over the span of less than a week, kill 50-125 million people -- more than the death toll during all six years of World War II, according to new research. A new study conducted by…

Machine learning predicts behavior of biological circuits

Bacterial colonies in dish (stock image). Credit: © jarun011 / Adobe Stock Biomedical engineers at Duke University have devised a machine learning approach to modeling the interactions between complex variables in engineered bacteria that would otherwise be too cumbersome to predict. Their algorithms are generalizable to many kinds of biological systems. In the new study,…
