Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that’s just as easy to fold and use. A sparkling demo that shows how this invention could revolutionize healthcare in developing countries … and turn almost anything into a fun, hands-on science experiment.

China has completed the installation of its 500-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope, known as FAST. It’s the largest such radio telescope in the world. FAST lies at a karst valley in Pingtang County of southwest China’s Guizhou Province. Scientists and reporters are gathering at the completion ceremony. The telescope was independently designed and built by China.
FAST’s concept was initiated in 1994 and the construction took more than five years. Adjustment will take 2 to 3 years. Experts say FAST has the potential to search for remote objects to better understand the origin of the universe, and boost the global hunt for extraterrestrial life.

Star Trek has inspired fans, technologies, and careers ever since its creation in 1964 and debut in 1966.
Fans use the original story, or “source code,” to create fan-made films, cartoons, and games. One of the more notable fan creations is the web series Star Trek Continues, which has faithfully adapted Gene Roddenberry’s universe and redistributed it to the world…

Researchers have discovered a genetic survival secret of Earth’s “hardiest animal”
A gene that scientists identified in these strange, aquatic creatures – called tardigrades – helps them survive boiling, freezing and radiation.
In future, it could be used to protect human cells, the researchers say
They found one that they have called “Dsup” (short for “damage suppressor”)
The team then inserted the Dsup gene into human cells’ DNA, and exposed those modified cells to X-rays; Dsup-treated cells suffered far less DNA damage.
