Those funny-looking, little green Martians have captivated human imagination since their first appearance in print in 1877. And maybe the intelligent version of Mars-based life doesn’t exist, but we’ve recently come closer to finding their long-lost cousins, microbes.
As the only known planet with life, it makes sense to assume that life began on Earth. Numerous experiments have recreated the environment of the early Earth and determined that biological molecules could have first formed on our planet.
Space@Hopkins held its second annual symposium on Friday, April 27. The Space@Hopkins program widely focuses on bringing the aspects of space-related research at Hopkins to one central location.
The jury has been out for a long time on the health effects of drinking alcohol. Is it good for your heart or bad? Previous studies have come to both conclusions, but researchers at the University of Cambridge in Cambridge, England, conducted a long-term study on nearly 600,000 participants from 19 high-income countries to fully analyze the health effects of alcohol consumption.
Kimberly Wong, a junior at Hopkins who is studying cognitive neuroscience, is the first author on a published paper titled, “The Devil’s in the g-tails: Deficient letter-shape knowledge and awareness despite massive visual experience.”
On March 20, 2018, the European Space Agency (ESA) announced the Atmospheric Remote-Sensing Infrared Exoplanet Large-Survey (ARIEL) mission as the its 4th medium-class mission in the Cosmic Vision program.
The origin of life is perhaps the most tantalizing question in science. Was it catalyzed by a high-energy lightning strike to the right amalgam of molecules? Did it travel from deep space on an asteroid, only landing on our planet by an improbable collision?
Evolutionarily death seems like a paradox. If we want the best chance to pass on our genes, why would we deteriorate and die? The current answer, coined “the evolutionary theories of aging,” offers an answer. As the years go by, our chances of passing on our genes decrease, and we become useless to evolution.
The eighth planet from the sun, Saturn, with its giant rings, is thought to be the most dazzling to picture. However, perhaps it is not the gas giant that should intrigue us but rather the rocky moons that orbit it.
Staring up at the heavens is something all humans, whether a thousand years ago or today, have done. Bloomberg Distinguished Professor Charles Bennett, an experimental cosmologist and recent recipient of the Breakthrough Prize, looks at space with the same fascination, harnessing the power of science and engineering to understand the universe’s deepest secrets.
In the last few decades, medicine has become increasingly tailored toward a patients’ specific needs; personalized medicine is quickly taking over the old practice of universal treatments for an ailment.
Kyle Cunningham hadn’t intended to delve so deeply into genetics. In fact when he first came to Hopkins as an undergraduate, he was studying computers and philosophy.
Hopkins, one of the oldest research universities in the U.S., offers students a range of different research opportunities.
I can’t say I’ve always been an avid believer in the existence of extraterrestrial life.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way. For extremophiles, those words aren’t just a mantra but a way of life. Thriving in environments from volcanoes to the frozen Arctic, extremophiles have found a way to adapt to the harshest environments on Earth. Research professor Jocelyne DiRuggiero and her team at Hopkins are studying these extremophiles to learn how they have come to be so versatile.
