News from physics – light penetrates even opaque material

What if a beam of light could pass through a highly scattering medium and still produce a clear image on the screen? And almost as if the medium didn’t exist at all. What appears at first glance to be pure magic is in fact groundbreaking knowledge from the world of physics. Indeed, Dutch and Austrian researchers have recently succeeded in using special light waves to transport images through opaque or opaque materials.

Spermidine – the natural substance for the gray cells

Researchers at the Universities of Graz, Berlin and Innsbruck have discovered a natural substance that is said to improve cognitive performance in the long term and slow down mental decline with increasing age: Spermidine is found in wheat germ, mushrooms and nuts, as well as in many other foods. In fact, a diet rich in spermidine is associated with improved brain performance in the elderly over the long term. This has been proven in experiments with animals and human subjects.

Environmental protection: Targeted solutions for the elimination of (micro)plastics in waters

Countless animals die in agony in the world’s oceans because they suffocate on plastic parts or get caught in ownerless fishing nets, the so-called ghost nets. Other sea creatures, on the other hand, swallow vast quantities of microplastics in the course of their lives and, as a result, also die a very slow death. In fact, it is a very dramatic development – plastic is everywhere on this planet. But how can you get rid of all that plastic? Researchers around the world are working hard on these and other questions.

Breakthrough in research – malaria vaccine developed

Every year, malaria kills nearly half a million people worldwide. Of these, 270,000 were children. The insidious disease is transmitted by the female Anopheles mosquito and is considered the leading cause of infant mortality in the developing world. Recently, scientists discovered a way to immunize mosquitoes against the dangerous pathogen. In addition, a newly developed malaria vaccine is attracting worldwide attention.
