BioMarin (BMRN) Stock Plunges After FDA Doesn't Approve Gene Therapy BioMarin (BMRN) Stock Plunges After FDA Doesn't Approve Gene Therapy

The CRL cited the need for additional data (two years) from the ongoing Phase 3 study, 270-301 , to confirm the duration of the treatment effect based on the primary endpoint of annualized bleeding rate. That price has been debated. The standard the...

IIT Bombay students discover closest known asteroid to fly by Earth

ZTF co-investigator Tom Prince, a senior research scientist, in a media statement, said that the asteroid flew close enough to earth that its gravity significantly changed its orbit. The asteroid 2020QG is about 10-20 feet (3-6 metres) in size, or ro...

US May Get Hit With 2 Tropical Storms at Same Time US May Get Hit With 2 Tropical Storms at Same Time

Marco has top winds of 40 miles per hour, but is expected to gain strength by the time it reaches the Gulf of Mexico. Tropical Depression #14 was upgraded to Tropical Storm Marco Friday night as Hurricane Hunters found pressures dropping while in...

Southeast faces storms throughout weekend, tropical storms in Gulf of Mexico Southeast faces storms throughout weekend, tropical storms in Gulf of Mexico

The Hurricane Hunter aircraft also found that the storm's centre is located south of the previously estimated position. The new tropical storm was centred about 230 miles east-southeast of the northern Leeward Islands Friday morning, with maximum s...

NASA space crew search for air leak

That effort is meant to identify the source of a small air leak first noticed on the station last September and that has more recently increased. There is no immediate danger to the crew or space station. The crew members will close the station's h...

Estimates of plastic in Atlantic ‘massively underestimated’ Estimates of plastic in Atlantic ‘massively underestimated’

Yet, it is comparable in magnitude to estimates of all plastic waste that has entered the Atlantic Ocean over the past 65 years: 17 million tonnes. The findings showed that the amount of plastic varied greatly among species and between individual...

NASA Reports Closest Asteroid Flyby on Record NASA Reports Closest Asteroid Flyby on Record

NASA said at roughly three to six metres across, asteroid 2020 QG is very small by asteroid standards. If it had really been on an effect direction, it would nearly certainly have become a fireball. NASA supports ZTF's search for near-Earth objects...

Exploding stars may have caused mass extinction on Earth, Researchers Say Exploding stars may have caused mass extinction on Earth, Researchers Say

Hence, the team looked for other astrophysical causes for ozone depletion like meteorite impacts, solar flare and gamma ray-bursts. The explosion of supernova debris eventually crashes into the solar system, subjecting the earth to long-lived irrad...

SpaceX astronauts dock with International Space Station after historic launch SpaceX astronauts dock with International Space Station after historic launch

Known as NASA's SpaceX Demo-2, the mission is an end-to-end test flight to validate the SpaceX crew transportation system, including launch, in-orbit, docking, and landing operations. He was selected as a NASA astronaut in 2000 and has completed ...

NASA confirms dent in Earth's protective shield

Moreover, it's splitting into two lobes, rather than one large one, which will cause further headaches for managing satellite missions. While there's much scientists still don't fully understand about the anomaly and its implications, new insight...

SUV-sized asteroid becomes closest one to pass Earth

Near Earth Asteroids, or NEAs, pass by our home planet all the time. Telescope observations suggest that the asteroid, dubbed 2020 QG , had a diameter of roughly three to six metres, making it somewhere between the size of a auto and a pickup tr...

CU Boulder reports six COVID-19 cases from on-campus testing CU Boulder reports six COVID-19 cases from on-campus testing

The University of Notre Dame has seen a significant uptick in COVID-19 cases this week as students are in their second week of classes for the semester. "There is no athletic calculus to engage in if our campuses aren't reopened". Young people - ...

SpaceX raises $1.9 billion in funding SpaceX raises $1.9 billion in funding

That successful recovery means that the booster can potentially be used yet again, breaking its own record set today. SpaceX has to date launched almost 600 satellites for its Starlink initiative - aimed at creating broadband coverage from orbit.

'Sad, Lonely, Cold Place': When Will The Universe End?

Theoretical physicist Matt Caplan, an assistant professor of physics at Illinois State University , admits that humanity will be long gone when this lonely farewell occurs in an impossibly distant future that's hard to wrap one's mind around - when ...

Death Valley Reaches Highest Temperature in 100 Years Death Valley Reaches Highest Temperature in 100 Years

If verified , the reading would break Death Valley's previous August record by three degrees, the Weather Service tweeted. Death Valley holds the record for the highest temperature ever recorded on the planet: 134 degrees in 1913, according to...

Growing dent on Earth’s magnetic field can damage satellites and navigation

This field's protection also extends to include satellites orbiting close to Earth. Within just the anomaly , particles are capable to get closer to the surface than typical, indicating that satellites and computers that move by way of it could be s...

US approves oil, gas leasing plan for Alaska Wildlife refuge US approves oil, gas leasing plan for Alaska Wildlife refuge

Companies have actually been leaving Alaska due to the high costs of drilling and shipping the oil and gas compared to the cheaper options in other states that already have pipelines installed. Under the approved oil and gas leasing plan, part of t...

Small asteroid becomes closest ever seen passing Earth

An tiny aseroid flew past our planet over the weekend and was detected by a NASA-funded asteroid survey as it departed. An asteroid the size of a auto flew within 1,830 miles of the Earth this weekend - but NASA astronomers did not spot it until ...

Weather Watch: Slight chance tropical wave could intensify Weather Watch: Slight chance tropical wave could intensify

Regardless of development, the wave is expected to bring heavy rainfall and gusty winds to portions of the Windward and southern Leeward Islands beginning late Monday through Tuesday morning, according to the hurricane center. The second, broad are...

Scientists Baffled By Strange Gamma Ray 'Heartbeat' From Cosmic Gas Cloud Scientists Baffled By Strange Gamma Ray 'Heartbeat' From Cosmic Gas Cloud

According to Desy's website, the new space cloud is discovered by a group of researchers led by Deutsches Elektronen- Synchrotron or DESY Humboldt's Jian Li and ICREA Professor Diego F. Thus it appears to be sending out an emission powered by the jet...

Physicist predicts the 'mindboggling' number of years before the universe ends

This production of iron over a few trillion years will cause an accumulation of the metal similar to a poison, causing the star to collapse and become a supernova. That means 99% of the black dwarfs will remain as those dim, cold stars. Well, it ...

Scientists puzzled by gamma-ray heartbeat coincidence

The scientists who studied the telescope's data found a sighting that emits gamma-rays, 100 light-years away from the microquasar. The latter is a smaller version of a quasar - a compact region around a stellar black hole with a mass several time...

Asteroid the size of a auto has near-miss with Earth!

On Sunday, Aug. 16, Business Insider reported about a possible asteroid impact on Earth. The space rock - which experts have dubbed '2020 QG' - now holds the record for the closest known fly-by of our planet that didn't result in an impact.

NASA Is Tracking a Vast, Growing Anomaly in Earth's Magnetic Field NASA Is Tracking a Vast, Growing Anomaly in Earth's Magnetic Field

But there is a spot in the magnetic field over South America and the Atlantic Ocean where the magnetic field dips closer to the surface. It works as a deflective shield that protects Earth from charged particles, solar flare and space rocks.

Underwhelming and extremely 'sad' way universe will end

Fusion can still occur at very cold temperatures - it just takes an incredibly long time and requires some help from quantum mechanics. Caplan's findings start with an educated estimate of just how much built-up iron black dwarfs of varied sizes wo...
