NASA’s Curiosity Rover Suggests Life On Mars; Finds Carbon In Rocks

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.

Cannabis To Possibly Cure COVID-19 Infection: Study

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

HYBRIT Develops World's First 'Fossil-Free Steel'

HYBRIT, a Swedish steel company, developed the world's first fossil-free steel. As part of a test run, steel was sold to Volvo. If the project is successful, the company intends to begin mass manufacturing cars built of material by 2026. HYBRIT's goal is to replace coking coal with hydrogen and renewable electricity. It hopes to “significantly reduce the global carbon footprint of the steel industry,” said Martin Lindqvist, CEO of SSAB.
