  • A new High-resolution Ultrasonic Transmission Tomography (HUTT) system made at the University of Southern California could offer resolutions of 0.4 mm for soft tissue scan. This is an order of magnitude better than the best X-Ray or MRI alternatives and it safe. (USC)
  • Blue Gene/L the world's fastest supercomputer completed a trillion calculations a second, beating its own record. (BBC)

  • For the first time light from planets outside the solar system has been directly observed by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. Up until now all extrasolar planets have been found using the "wobble" and "transit" techniques. (PhysOrg)
  • Researches show that the plant Arabidopsis can change the DNA sequences that were inherited from their parents, reverting to that of their grandparents. The findings challenge the understanding of inheritance first described by Mendel. (Nature)

  • Hitachi unveils its robot Emiew which will compete with the engineering prowess of Honda's ASIMO and Sony's QRIO robots. Emiew's use of wheels instead of feet makes it the fastest robot yet; and its focus is Excellent Mobility and Interactive Existence as Workmate. (BBC)
  • The sequencing of the human X chromosome is published in Nature and there are matching segments in chromosomes of animals. This supports the theory that when genes are transferred from "non-sex" chromosomes, they stay there. (New Scientist)
  • Scientists at the Scripps Research Institute La Jolla, California have developed an artificial fifth base for DNA. The fifth base is called 3-fluorobenzene (3FB), 3FB pairs with itself, and it is hoped that this new tool can be used to learn about DNA evolution. (Nature)
