Improved Hubble Yardstick Gives Fresh Evidence for New Physics in the Universe

Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI)

Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope have made the most precise measurement to date of the rate at which the universe is expanding the big bang. This may mean that there's something unknown about the makeup of the universe. The new numbers remain at odds with independent measurements of the early universe's expansion.

Biology, Geometry Unite to Thwart Common Cardiovascular Diseases

National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering

To treat cardiovascular disease, surgery can remove blockages in large vessels in the heart or legs but is not possible in small vessels. To address this problem, researchers designed 3D-printed patches seeded with vessel-inducing endothelial cells. In a mouse model of hindlimb ischemia, the researchers identified specific patch patterns that induced growth of organized, tissue-saving blood vessels, demonstrating the potential for the novel technology to address this significant public health problem.
