This unprecedented feat suggests there could be an alternative to DNA-based life, as we know it on Earth – a genetic system for life that may be possible on other worlds. This new molecular system, which […]
Today’s sophisticated models can make reasonably decent weather forecasts up to 10 days in advance. A newly developed computing technique promises to push the limits of weather forecasts even further ahead. If the system fulfils its initial promise, we could be looking at another four or five days of weather forecasts that are actually useful […]
