Making a star

.
.
Simulation of star formation by collapse of molecular clouds (2008). The calculation models the collapse and fragmentation of a molecular cloud with a mass 50 times that of our Sun. The cloud is initially 1.2 light-years (9.5 million million kilometres) in diameter, with a temperature of 10 Kelvin (-263 degrees Celsius).

It’s all in the genes

 

 

A helpful science GIF using diagrams showing how virus can be used in gene therapy to repair damaged DNA, which if left unchecked can lead to illnesses like cancer. This post was inspired by a news story I wrote on my other blog on a genetics discovery at Washington State University recently.

Science Kombat Super

 

This could be a great way to get more kids interested in science, and making their studies in class more relevant to them. Mortal Kombat meets Bunsen burners from Brazil.
