NASA's Webb telescope arrived at its observation post, a million miles from Earth, on January 25. The Telescope fired its thrusters for 297 seconds and completed the final post-launch course correction. Webb will orbit the Sun, and, is expected to operate for over a decade, maybe two. Webb will dig out facts about the formation of the Universe and the existence of aliens for possible signs of life.
The Curiosity rover present on Mars has found several samples rich in a particular type of carbon. For the research, Scientists collected 24 samples from the Gale crater on Mars and heated it to about 850° Celsius. ''We’re looking at what else could have caused the carbon signature we’re seeing, if not life,” said Paul Mahaffy, one of the leading investigators. The Rover had landed on Mars in 2012.

Researchers from Oregon State University found that cannabis compounds could be an alternative to cure Covid-19 infections. Two compounds namely, Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGA) and Cannabidiolic Acid (CBDA) found in Hemp are responsible for combating the virus. The compounds were tested on Alpha and Beta variants, which bound to spike proteins found on the virus and blocked their path to spread further. Notably, the study hasn't been tested on… read-more
