Long Space Flights Cause Fluid Build-up in the Brain On Earth, gravity moves the fluids in our body downward from our head to our feet. But, the lack of gravity in space can cause an increased fluid build-up in our head. Scientists have found that spending a long time in space expands the size and volume of fluid in the brain, leading to long-term health problems.

NASA’s TESS mission discovers it’s first planet orbiting two suns When two stars orbit each other, it is called a binary star. In 2018, NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Surveying Satellite (TESS) mission found a planet orbiting one of these stars by detecting changes in light levels coming from the stars.

Hey, pet owners, are you quarantining your cat or dog? Chinese researchers studied which animals are at risk of becoming infected with the coronavirus and if they can pass it on to others. They discovered that at high levels of exposure, cats and ferrets were more likely to become infected with the novel coronavirus. However, dogs showed no evidence of COVID-19 symptoms or viral carriers.

Brain Cells Get Younger To Heal Spinal Cord Injuries Brain and spinal cord injuries usually produce irreversible motor damage and paralysis. New research shows how the brain may be able to heal itself by reverting injured brain cells back into a younger state.

Are HIV drugs the key to a COVID-19 cure? As COVID-19 continues to spread globally, the need for a “miracle cure” appears more and more unobtainable. This group of researchers found drugs we currently use for other conditions, like HIV, show small benefits in recovery time against severe cases of COVID-19.

Can frequently touching your eye increase the risk for COVID-19? COVID-19 can easily travel from person to person but we currently don’t know all its routes of transmission. A new study finds our eyes carry a low risk of spreading the novel coronavirus.

Want to Lose Weight? Eat a Big Breakfast! The time you eat plays an important role in how fast our body metabolizes food. By shifting to eating more portions during breakfast, people can metabolize high-calorie meals at a faster rate–and lose more weight in the process.

Novel coronavirus still detected in recovered patients without symptoms In this study, 50% of patients tested positive for coronavirus after recovery in the hospital and two weeks of isolation. They were found to still have the coronavirus in their system for up to eight days after symptoms disappeared.

COVID-19: What it is, how it works, and what we can do to prevent its spread Researchers summarize the current state of known medical and biological information about COVID-19 and discuss ways to control the spread of the disease.

Since December, 2019 a virus which causes the COVID-19 disease has been spreading, resulting in a global pandemic. While some questions about COVID-19 can be answered, researchers are still working on other aspects. In one review article, researchers overview aspects READ MORE

How effective are travel restrictions and social distancing? Modeling indicates that travel restrictions alone would not be effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19, reducing human contact is necessary. Learn about how scientists figured this out.

Reality now matches what was predicted. According to models, travel restrictions alone would only delay the epidemic status of COVID-19. But when they are combined with social distancing, the two policies drastically reduce the predicted number of new cases.
