What We Can Learn From a Mouse About the Future 3D Color X-Ray

A mouse was the first creature that was x-rayed in full 3D color. Initially, it was only possible to illuminate the borne and some other fleshy bits. However, professor Anthony and his farther professor Phil came up with the MARS spectral CT scanner which is fitted with effective particle-detecting technology. As covered recently by Homewares Insider.com,  it is able to count photons in the body, which tracks their energy levels and also calculates the densities of tissues and bones. The father and son in collaboration with CERN spent many years trying to come up with techniques meant to sharpen the medical image.

Your Poop Might be Full of Plastics

In every minute dump truck made of plastics gets into the world oceans. This adds up to eight million metric tons annually. Once they get into the oceans, they are broken into smaller bits which are about 5 millimeters wide commonly referred to as microplastics. Some of these microplastics are said to sink into the ocean based on their densities while others are thought to be ingested by the marine life which includes the fish and the shellfish.
