We now know that matter can be divided into atoms, and those atoms have the constituent parts of neutrons, protons, and electrons. These particles in turn are made of quarks. But what is the smallest unit that the world around us can be divided into. Well, that work is being done at CERN in Switzerland right now. Here is the video that helps explain perhaps the most pervasive theory of the universe YOU live in.
I posted something on my other blog “VivatVeritas” that I think pertains to this topic also. Below is the link. Enjoy :)
A company called 1366 Technologies may have finally broken the price barrier to allow solar energy to be as cheap as coal. This is done through improved manufacturing techniques that grow the silicon into sheets rather than physically cut in from and ingot.
This could be the breakthrough we have been waiting for to upscale into mass production.

Scientists have discovered that by turned off the p21 gene they can prod mice to regrow tissue that was surgically excised. Humans have this same gene, which seems inhibits regeneration, something that a newt can do. Well, superhuman healing might be just around the corner. It would make plastic surgery scar free and eventually could make organ transplantation a thing of the past.
