Officially the world exceeded 50 million confirmed cases of coronavirus. With about 10 million cases, the United States is the country with the most confirmed coronavirus cases, followed immediately by India and Brazil. At least 230,000 people have died from the disease in the United States.

Taking advantage of technology called “laboratory on a chip” and the cutting-edge gene editing technique known as CRISPR, the Stanford researchers have created a highly automated device that can identify the presence of the new coronavirus in as little as half an hour.

The 4G network to be installed on the Moon is bad news for astronomers. Due to the power of telescopes and sensitivity, the concern with Nokia’s development to facilitate long-term lunar habitability communications focused on lunar rovers and navigation has a lot at stake because one of the enemies of space observation is space observation. Radio Frequency Interference (RFI). Because of this, the telescopes are installed in remote locations, helping to eliminate these sources of interference.

Aleph Farms company announces its Aleph Zero program that attempts to grow meat in laboratories without the need for a living being. The goal is to grow meat industrially with local resources so that space missions can think about long-term stays in space.

Artificial night lighting has a wide range of effects on the natural world and should be limited whenever possible. A team led by the University of Exeter put together more than 100 studies and found impacts on animals and plants. Changes were constantly found in the animals’ bodies and behavior, especially hormone levels and waking and sleeping patterns.

Global warming of 2 ° C will lead to the release of approximately 230 billion tons of carbon from the world’s soil, new research suggests. Global soils contain two to three times more carbon than the atmosphere, and higher temperatures accelerate decomposition, reducing the amount of time carbon spends in the soil (known as “soil carbon turnover”).

Thank you for reading. See you in the next edition.
