One place on earth with no life
According to a recently published research paper in the journal Nature Ecology and Evolution.There is one place on earth where life can’t exist. Scientists conducted multiple tests and discovered that Dallol in Ethiopia is one place where life can’t exist even in microorganisms. Dallol is hot, salty and acidic even in winters, daytime temperatures can exceed 45 degrees Celsius. Some acidic and saline pools have negative pH values.

Army, Texas A&M develop 'Terminator'-style material that can 'heal itself'
U.S. Army and Texas A&M researchers have developed a material that they say can “heal autonomously. ” The research, which is still in the discovery phase, is published in the peer-reviewed journal Advanced Functional Materials. Army researchers, for example, are eyeing drones that can change shape in midflight.

Massive lava tubes on Mars and the moon could be home to life, researchers find
Lava tubes under the surface of both the moon and Mars are large enough to be the homes of planetary bases as humanity further explores the cosmos, a newly published study suggests. The research notes the tubes are likely between 100 and 1,000 times the size of those on Earth and can shield humans from cosmic radiation.

This is when and how the universe is expected to end
It’s not expected to happen anytime soon, but one scientist has calculated when the universe will end. The research, published in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, notes that sometime over the “next few trillion years,” when the universe is dead as we know it, stars will continue to explode, not with a giant bang, but “very, very slowly fizzle. ”

Scientists identify the ancient enzyme that makes body odor so strong
The same team that identified the handful of bacteria responsible for human body odor has now gone a step further and pinpointed the enzyme operating within those organisms. "This is a key advancement in understanding how body odour works, and will enable the development of targeted inhibitors that stop BO production at source without disrupting the armpit microbiome," said University of York researcher Dr. Michelle Rudden, in a release.
