For Jill Tarter, the revelation came when she was a child walking on a Florida Keys beach with her father. "I remember just looking and thinking that up there, somewhere around one of those stars, there's another little girl walking on the beach with her dad," Tarter said.

It seems that when cells di­vide, they some­times dis­t­rib­ute their DNA dif­fer­ently among “daugh­ter” cells, said Amar J. S. Klar of the Na­tion­al Can­cer In­s­ti­tute at Fred­er­ick, Md.  The left-right dy­nein is one of 12 pro­teins form­ing the dy­nein mo­tor, a ti­ny ma­chine that per­forms trans­por­ta­tion ...

Al­bert Ein­stein the­o­rized long ago that mov­ing things would warp the fab­ric of space and time, which ac­cord­ing to his find­ings are unit­ed as a four-di­men­sional space-time. As the ob­jects trav­eled, they would al­so em­a­nate rip­ples of grav­i­ty called grav­i­ta­tion­al waves. No one has de­tected that yet, but some re­search­ers be­lieve they could find such waves com­ing from strange, wispy cos­mic struc­tures called su­per­strings. Cos­mic su­per­strings are the­o­rized to wig­gle and os­cil­late, pro­duc­ing grav­i­ta­tion­al waves, and ... [full story]
