Japan, which already leads the world in life expectancy, now has another tool to consolidate its leadership position. The country’s scientists say they have discovered a protein responsible for aging and have learned to control it. A group of scientists from Osaka University have discovered that a component of human complement system is directly responsible for aging, citing the Japanese media the Russian ITAR-TASS. C1q protein, researchers say, is to blame for human cells become old.The immune system, the complement system help or “complements” the body in cleansing germs. C1q protein was earlier thought to be merely an element in the system.

Mysterious “night shining” or noctilucent clouds are beautiful to look at, and this stunning image offers an unusual view of these clouds as seen by astronauts aboard the International Space Station. They are also called polar mesosphere clouds, these clouds have baffled scientists with recent dramatic changes. They used to be considered rare, but now the clouds are becoming brighter, are more often visible at lower latitudes and lower than ever, and sometimes they appear during the day. Astronauts may take a sequence of these clouds on June 5, 2012, as seen under. According to NASA is the first sequence of images taken from orbit phenomenon. The sequence in this video was taken while the ISS passed over western Asia. By focusing on the end of the earth at night with the sun illuminating it, the team was able to capture some of these mysterious clouds movements.

A scientific expedition in conjunction with the U.S. space center, said that the Arctic Ocean is green staining of the proliferation of microscopic marine plants, which are essential for life on other seas, but had not survived until now in a ecosystem so cold.Global warming is behind a phenomenon that has not been detected in its full extent.The expedition ICESCAPE (short for Climate Impacts on Ecosystems and Chemistry of the Arctic) explored the waters of the Beaufort and Chukchi seas in Alaska aboard a U.S. icebreaker.
“We have seen a massive growth of phytoplankton between 800 centimeters and 1.3 meters in the first-year ice cover in the Chukchi Sea,” say the authors. This layer extends over 100 kilometers, a phenomenon that had not been observed so far. Changes in the Arctic had been detected by satellite imagery from NASA. It was thought that these plants green tinged water and are the basis of the marine food chain, only grew after the retreating sea ice, which occurs in summer. The problem, says biologist Sam Laney, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, is that, as a downpour made the desert bloom, the accumulation of melt water in short periods of time in the Arctic have important effects on the ecosystem. According to their analysis, the ice thinned, sunlight reaches the waters beneath the permafrost on the sea, allowing the plant to develop.

The flames have destroyed between 200 and 300 homes and forced the evacuation of 36,000 residents
A fire of epic proportions that devastated around Colorado Springs in the western United States, has entered the city on Wednesday, forcing the evacuation of 36,000 people and causing the destruction of buildings. “It’s a firestorm of epic proportions,” summarized the fire chief of the city, Richard Brown, quoted by local daily ‘Denver Post’.
Colorado Springs, Colorado’s second city, is located a hundred miles southeast of Denver, the state capital.

All the world there are many stories of houses where they are ghosts or supernatural things happen. In most cases there is no convincing scientific evidence. Even there are even pictures of these supernatural events or appearances. Except in some cases, as happened in May 2007 in a house in Queensland.

But it is very large.
Officially, there are only Mezhgorye linked to mine iron and steel industry in the region, managed by a company that has changed names several times but has remained invariably headed by a general asset (including a certain Leonid Akimovich Tsirkunov).
