Human Embryos Hacked Finally – A Beginning of New Era for Customized Life

A group of scientists who hail from China, have just tweaked the genes of a human embryo. This is something new to the world and a big platform for bio-technologists to play around with this pioneering research. This approach leads us to another million opportunities of being perfect or at least how we perceive perfection as.

Isn’t that cool, especially when you’ve all this stored on Google Cloud, can easily be exported via Printer, PDF or an Image. Tell me what do you think about it? Of course through the comment form below.

Birthday of Alessandro Volta, The Battery Man and Voltaic Cell Maker

alessandro-volta-battery

It’s because of this great guy, the physicist, who invented a battery, we’re able to carry electricity in our pockets now-a-days. His full name is quite long, Alessandro Giuseppe Antonio Anastasio Volta and has his birthday today, 18 Feb.

The voltaic cell is derived through the chemical reactions between Zinc and Copper and its electrolytes Sulfuric Acid mixed with Salt water. So, electrons starts to flow from negative terminal to positive terminal and that’s how we got the voltage or electricity. That’s something amazing, he did.
