Researchers create 3D print of heart using harvested human tissue

Researchers at Tel Aviv University today unveiled a world’s first – a 3D print of a heart constructed from harvested human tissue and vessels. This technology, although in its formative stages, could potentially one day provide relief for patients whose lives are determined by the fickle whims of organ transplant lists. The organ produced in Tel Aviv isn’t viable for donation. According to the AFP, it’s roughly the size of a rabbit’s heart. It’s tiny, looking more like an overcooked kidney bean ...

'First' 3D print of heart with human tissue, vessels unveiled

Scientists in Israel unveiled a 3D print of a heart with human tissue and vessels on Monday, calling it a first and a "major medical breakthrough" that advances possibilities for transplants. The heart produced by researchers at Tel Aviv University is about the size of a rabbit's. It marked "the first time anyone anywhere has successfully engineered and printed an entire heart replete with cells, blood vessels, ventricles and chambers," said Tal Dvir, who led the project.

Israeli scientists are about to attempt the first private moon landing, and you can watch live video of the historic feat

In February, SpaceX launched the first private moon mission. Beresheet, as the 1,300-lb robot is called, was designed by an Israeli nonprofit called SpaceIL. The four-legged moon-craft is expected to attempt a lunar landing between 3-4 p.m EDT on Thursday. If successful, it'd be a historic first in commercial spaceflight. SpaceIL is broadcasting live video of its mission control center in Israel during the landing maneuver. Nearly two months after its launch, a private Israeli spacecraft has...

The Utility (And Importance) Of Cliches

While we tend to condemn clichés harshly, the scholar of rhetoric Ruth Amossy at Tel Aviv University has shown that they’re in fact crucial to the way we bond with and read other human beings. ‘How have you been?’ – ‘Not bad at all!’: in our daily interactions, clichés represent a communicative common ground, by avoiding the need to question or establish the premises of speech. They are a kind of a shared mental algorithm that facilitates efficient interaction and reaffirms social relationship...

The world's first private lunar lander just took a selfie with Earth on its way to the moon

Last month SpaceX launched the first private lunar lander toward the moon. The robot is called "Beresheet" (meaning "in the beginning") and was made by SpaceIL, a nonprofit organization based in Israel. Beresheet had some glitches shortly after launch on February 21, but SpaceIL recovered the robot and expects to land it on April 11. On Tuesday, Beresheet took a selfie photo with Earth in the background and a placard that reads "small country, big dreams." If Beresheet survives its weeks-long ...

Meet the sea squirt, sucking up plastic particles from the sea

Israeli researchers have found that ascidians - round, palm-sized animals also known as sea squirts can thrive in dirty industrial areas and pristine waters alike, allowing them to detect and analyze waste and its impact in various regions. The United Nations says it is as if a garbage truck full of plastic was dumped into the water every minute, a rate some estimates show could lead to oceans carrying more plastic than fish in 30 years. "[Sea squirts] just sit in one place all their life and ...
