We will remind, earlier it was noted that scientists have successfully conducted a unique experiment – connected the prosthetic hand to nerve endings, which gave the patient the opportunity to feel the hand and even to move it. Surgeons attached a titanium implant prosthesis to two bones and with 16 electrodes attached to the muscles. It is worth noting that the patient has the ability to even type on the keyboard and tie the laces.

British scientists volunteered to check, is it true that if before drinking wine to drink beer, you get to avoid the unpleasant symptoms of a hangover.

Also “Znayu” I wrote that researchers from the American University of Beirut in Lebanon and from the University of Cambridge have put forward the hypothesis that the planet Neptune may be one large object and a large group of very small objects in the Kuiper belt.
