Scientists Say the Strange Behavior of Uranus Is a Result of Massive Collision

Many pieces of research have already proved that Uranus is an amazing planet in the solar system. Uranus is the only planet that spins on its side. Formerly, in July, researchers discovered that Uranus rotates differently, it turns about 90-degree angle to the other planets in the solar system. After this research, they theorized that the strange behavior might be due to a considerable impact. Currently, scientists came to know that a gigantic rock twice bigger than Earth pushed Uranus. According to new research, the collision theory is correct.

Jacob Kegerreis, an astronomy researcher from Durham University, presented his research at an Earth and space science conference. The team of scientists from the United Kingdom appended some facts to the collision theory. They used detailed computer simulations to show that a giant rock crashed into the surface of Uranus. Thus, the team provides a video displaying the view of a crash. Researchers wrote that most of the material from the impactors rocky core falls into the center of the destination object. They also believe that the massive collision might have taken place millions of years ago. On the other hand, NASA’s chief scientist, Jim Green, said Uranus is a unique planet in the solar system. The giant planet tilts about 90-degrees on its side.

Besides, it has an unbalanced magnetic field, and it doesn’t reach out the poles like Earth. Also, it is a planet with no interior heat escape from the core. It has a ring system similar to that of Saturn, although it’s a faint one. Another scientist, Scott Sheppard, says it is extraordinary. Therefore, the simulation released by the researchers have initiated an argument among the theorists. However, some of the conspiracy theorists trust that in future Earth will also face similar collision. According to these conspiracy theorists, the powerful crash with an unknown planet X will be disastrous. Besides, it may lead to an end of the world. Until now, scientists have not found any necessary evidence to prove the existence of Planet X or Planet Nine.

A 7-Year-Old Girl Misdiagnosed by A Doctor Saying That She Was Faking the Symptoms

When a partially paralyzed 7-year-old girl arrived at the Hospital in Oregon, a doctor said she was faking her symptoms. She did so to drive her parents’ attention towards her and was feeling jealous of her new baby sister. But the doctor’s opinion proved wrong when they had an MRI of the girl child. According to the MRI reports, she was suffering from AFM, i.e., Acute Flaccid Myelitis. Although, the polio-like disease has attacked hundreds of children. The very first case of AFM came into existence in 2014. Usually, doctors claim that many children fake their illness, but in this case, it was not a fake one.

Bailey, the victim of AFM, was a healthy child until October 2014. One day suddenly she was unable to move some of her body parts. While, she couldn’t move her neck or the body parts on the right side (leg, hand, etc.). Her parents took her to a rehabilitation center, where the health expert said Bailey was not suffering from paralysis. Mikell Sheean, Bailey’s mother, was sure that her daughter was not acting. According to experts, Bailey was unstable and jealous. On the other hand, Bailey’s pediatrician, who’d know her since birth, objected the diagnosis. Additionally, the pediatrician recommended an MRI test. However, after the correct diagnosis, the child got treatment for the rare polio-like disease. She also got some extensive physical therapy.

Currently, after four years of treatment, she can walk once again. Her mother says that fortunately Bailey’s pediatrician asked them for the test, and diagnosed the disease. Elin Olivera, mother of a child having AFM says Bailey’s case is a unique one. Olivera runs a private Facebook page for parents of children having AFM. Depending upon her page, she evaluated that parents of about one child in 10 are told that it is not AFM or paralysis. Besides, the doctors say the disease is present in their minds. Dr. Mark Graber, president emeritus of the Society to Improve Diagnosis in Medicine, said that doctors say like this when they fail to find the exact physical reason. Dr. Frances also stated that doctors are uncomfortable when they cannot answer parents’ question. But according to him, false sureness is very dangerous than unsureness.

Scientists at Washington University Combined Rabbit Genes with Household Plant to Purify Indoor Air

Plants are a source of oxygen but have you ever listened about plants cleaning harmful chemicals in the air. Scientists have modified a houseplant that is capable of cleaning the air inside the house. In short, the researchers developed an air purifier houseplant. The new research was published in Environmental Science and Technology. In the article, scientists explain how they altered a common houseplant and empowered it to clean the air around it. The scientists at the University of Washington have genetically modified a common plant – pothos ivy. The plant has the potential to remove chloroform and benzene from the surroundings.

The plant consists of a protein called as 2E1 which is commonly present in all mammals, including humans. But in human beings, it is present in liver and actively works against alcohol. Thus, it does not play any role in protecting humans from air pollution. Research head, Prof. Stuart Strand, said they decided to have this reaction outside the body. They aim to make the response possible in plants and the results are here. To achieve the goal scientists made a sample copy of the 2E1 protein in rabbits. After that, scientists inserted the same into the widely available houseplant pothos ivy. As a result, every cell of the plant transformed into a small-scale factory for 2E1. They often call it a “green liver”.

Therefore, to testify the experiment, the plants were placed in glass tubes filled with probably harmful household pollutants. They got incredible results, after knowing that chloroform disappeared within six days. In addition to this, benzene levels had decreased by three-quarters after eight days. To compare the outcomes, the researchers also repeated the process with regular plants. This time, they found no changes in the composition of gases. The researchers recommend that their plants are capable of cleaning the household air. Dr. Long Zhang, study’s lead author, said they wanted to perform this operation into pothos ivy. The reason behind selecting the plant is it is a healthy houseplant and can grow in any condition. Currently, the scientists are planning to perform additional tests to see if they can clear other chemicals.
