By carefully tinkering with the chemical structure of a common household plastic, scientists have managed to upcycle it into a reusable adhesive with unique and hugely promising properties. A small patch of the substance can be used to hold around 300 lb (136 kg) in the air, with the researchers claiming it is one of the toughest materials known to science.

A rendering of Axicle's anti-rollover decoupling plate in action

An innovative trailer attachment plate designed to prevent injury and death among truck drivers has proven itself in the face of a roaring jet engine. For its latest demonstration, Axicle has shown how its sensor-loaded fifth-wheel plate can quickly jettison a tipping trailer being blown over by immense winds from a jet engine, as it continues to gather funding ahead of extensive road testing.

Diagram of the JWST's trajectory

After a 30-day journey, NASA's James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has reached its destination at the Lagrange 2 (L2) point about one million miles (1.5 million km) from Earth. At 2:00 pm EST, it fired its main engines for 297 seconds to alter its velocity by 3.6 miles per second (1.6 m/s) and send it into its new orbit.

Scientists have found exercise can turn back the epigenetic clock on skeletal muscle in mice

Studies in recent years have continued to illuminate the beneficial ways exercise can influence the aging process, helping tackle vision loss, heart damage and promoting muscle repair, to list a few examples. New research has added to this pool of knowledge through experiments in old mice, which after undergoing an increasingly demanding fitness regime exhibited characteristics of mice eight weeks younger, compared to a control group of sedentary rodents.
