A new study unexpectedly found prairie voles genetically modified to carry no oxytocin receptors still formed strong social bonds and retained the ability to nurse offspring

Using cutting-edge gene editing technology researchers have engineered prairie voles with no oxytocin receptors. These notoriously monogamous mammals were thought to rely on oxytocin to form crucial social bonds but the results of these new experiments suggest this so-called "love hormone" may be less important than suspected.

New name, new mission — Terraline will focus on getting human-driven Class 8 electric trucks into circulation

The company formerly known as Solo Advanced Vehicle Technologies (Solo AVT) is now moving forward under the name Terraline. Along with the name change comes a shift in the company's mission, at least for the near term. Its autonomous SD1 platform will take a backseat as it focuses on meeting the immediate demand for an all-electric Class 8 long-haul truck for human drivers. It calls this one the Tangra LH1, and the truck utilizes the same 500-mile (805-km) electric architecture but with a cab built for an actual person, complete with niceties like a windshield.

Hand squeezing trigger on device dispensing foam

Filling tumors with oxygen makes them more susceptible to treatment. In seeking a path to deliver more oxygen to tumors, researchers turned to an unlikely source of inspiration: foam used in cooking, like the whipped cream that baristas use to top hot chocolates. Utilizing the same whipping siphon used in the culinary world, they created a food-based foam that can be injected directly into tumors and showed that it was effective in reducing treatment resistance in mouse tumors.

A batch of the Caenorhabditis elegans nematodes, fluorescing green after exposure to airborne black mold spores

Although the air in our homes or workplaces may seem OK, it might contain harmful compounds emitted by materials such as particleboard and carpeting. New research suggests that we may soon be able to tell if that is the case, using tiny glowing worms.

The RowBro rowing machine can be used by people weighing up to 120 kg (256 lb), and who are no more than 6.6 ft tall (201 cm)

Rowing machines are one of those things that many fitness-conscious people want but don't get, due to their high price and large size. The RowBro is designed to address those problems, as it's ultra-compact and should ultimately sell for just US$599.

The liquid windows would reportedly be fairly inexpensive, as they could be made from readily available off-the-shelf components

There are already "smart" windows that can be electronically switched between either letting sunlight through or blocking it. A new multi-layered one, however, can be set to several energy-saving light filtration modes.

If realized as planned, the Loop would reach a length of 93 km (57 miles) and include bicycle paths, as well as jogging and walking paths

Think of cycling- and pedestrian-friendly cities and you'll likely come up with somewhere like Amsterdam or Utrecht, but perhaps Dubai will eventually be in the conversation too if an ambitious new proposal is realized. Named the Loop, it would consist of a 93-km (57-mile)-long enclosed bicycle and walking path that would offer respite from the harsh desert conditions.

A simple acid layer on a catalyst can convert regular commercial electrolyzers to produce hydrogen from seawater, says an international research team

An international team from the University of Adelaide, Australia, Tianjin and Nankai Universities in China and Kent State University in the US has published new research claiming that a simple, cheap acid layer over the catalyst in an electrolyzer allows it to split seawater with "nearly 100 per cent efficiency," without any pre-treatment other than filtering.
