A scientist inspecting one of LIGO's mirrors, which has now been measurably affected by quantum fluctuations

Physics is mostly divided into two areas – classical physics describes how large objects and systems work on a scale that we see every day, while quantum physics describes the “spooky” subatomic world. Now, scientists have observed a rare crossover, where a quantum fluctuation was able to affect a macroscale object.

A new study offers the first experimental evidence to show exercise can slow macular degeneration

We know exercise is a good thing. It improves everything from cardiovascular disease to one’s cognitive health. Observational studies have also seen physical activity lessen age-related vision loss, but until now it hasn’t been clear how causal that relationship has been. New research from the University of Virginia (UVA) is offering the first experimental evidence to show how exercise can directly slow, or even prevent, macular degeneration.

A signature of gut bacteria has been found to indicate advanced liver disease with a high level of accuracy

Science is continuing to shine a light on the links between gut bacteria and all kinds of health conditions, ranging from depression, to autoimmune disease, to Alzheimer’s and PTSD. A US research team working to further unravel its secrets has happened upon a specific signature of gut bacterial species, which it found could be used to detect liver fibrosis and cirrhosis with an accuracy of greater than 90 percent.
