Space bursts provide insight to Theory of Everything

December 11, 2012

space_bursts_video

Light from some of the universe’s most energetic explosions is allowing scientists to probe the nature of space-time, according to new observations of gamma-ray bursts from the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency’s Ikaros spacecraft. Photons released by these bursts help place limits on a unified model of all of the forces of nature — what scientists call a “theory of everything.”

darpa_wound_stasis_play

Battlefield medical care administered by first responders is often critical to the survival of injured service members. In the case of internal abdominal injuries and resulting internal hemorrhaging, however, there is currently little that can be done to stanch bleeding before the patients reach necessary treatment facilities. The resulting blood loss often leads to death from what would otherwise be potentially survivable wounds.
