Science!

So there's been tons of crunchy, tasty, fun science news lately, but very little time for me to post about it. Here are some highlights.


  • Trachea transplant using recipient's stem cells means no tissue rejection.

  • Diesel fuel growing in nature. You know kid, diesel doesn't grow on trees. Oh wait... yes it does!

  • That woman in the red dress is hot, or at least the dress makes your brain think so.

  • How bleach works to kill germs - it breaks down the proteins, just like heat.

  • AIDS cure via bone marrow transplant from a genetically immune donor. This isn't a scalable model, but it's a fascinating experiment that can lead to new roads for research. And one guy - he got the magic get out of jail free card. Nearly two years later, there's no sign of HIV. Wow.

  • Yeah for science news!
    The transplant story is amazing,I'm hoping they have a state system that paid for all that though.
    The fungus to diesel story is neat as well, I like it when nature provides a solution to a problem.
