Doctors might have found the most weirdest way to kill cancer cells. It involves sending it to space.

Cancer might be the biggest flaw in the design of human beings. It has claimed countless lives and doctors are still in a battle to rid the human body of these life-threatening cells. While surgery and chemotherapy might stop or slow down these cells, it's persistent and might pop up one day when we least expect it. Years of research have proved fruitless and this time, doctors are trying a new method to get rid of these cells... by sending them into space. According to ABC News, when cancer cells were exposed to microgravity, it died off without any external treatments. Because of this, doctors from the University of Technology Sydney want to send samples into space. They believe that microgravity affects its ability to communicate with each other and their surroundings. Lead doctor behind the project Joshua Chou said to ABC, "When we’re in space, what happens to the body is that your cells start to feel this condition which we call mechanical unloading. "It means that there’s a lack of force because there’s no gravity.



This actually affects how the cells move, how they function and also dictate their survivability.” The doctors have put aside US$200,000 to send live samples to the International Space Station (ISS) next year. In hopes that their theory is correct. The cells will be placed into a container the size of a tissue box and will be sent to space from the ISS. Chou added, "In my head, this is not supposed to be a cure, a golden bullet to cure cancer, but it can work in parallel to existing therapies, drug treatments, and so forth, to help increase the efficiency of the current treatment." Other researches are trying another method to kill these cells. Director of nanomedical center at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Vladimir Zharov is working on a laser that can accurately target and kill cancer cells. It works by shooting the laser light at your skin, which will then be absorbed by melanin in our blood. It will heat up and the water around the melanin cells will evaporate. This produces a bubble that expands and collapses. Effectively killing cancer cells in our blood. This process does not harm other cells as they are not targeted by the laser. It might not be feasible to send a human into space as the cost might be too high for the average Joe to afford. But with the use of a microgravity chamber, we could be one step closer to curing cancer, if this experiment works.

New One Piece Chapter 955 Makes Unexpected Alliance

When something serious is about to go down in the popular franchise One Piece chapter 955, creator Eiichiro Oda lets you know in the most dramatic way possible: by Beast Pirates And Bigmom Pirates Alliance. Seven days before the raid of Onigashima, Kawamatsu succeeded in obtaining a large number of swords their forces can use for the battle. Along with this, Zoro finally agrees to return the Shusui to the people of Wano in exchange of Enma. Princess Hiyori insisted on the return of the sword as they considered it a relic to the country. She expressed that the country of Wano has been in much tribulation ever since the sword was taken from them, and hopes that the return of Shusui will bring good fortune once again to the country.


Zoro probably agrees because of Hiyori’s tale that the Enma – her own father’s sword – was the only blade to ever injure Kaido in battle. And knowing Zoro’s interest in legendary swords, he would probably want to test if the tales were true. The last time w…

Spider-Man Dead: New Upcoming Marvel Comic Unsettling Truth

It seems that Spider-Man goes to have a brush with death in an upcoming comic of Marvel’s Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. Marvel despatched new solicitation details about points #11 and #12 of the Tom Taylor-written collection to publishers, revealing that Spidey might be discovered lifeless in Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man issue 12.



“Spider-Man day has been and gone,” Taylor mentioned in a tweet when the information broke on Friday. “So, now’s time to say Spidey dies in our Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #12.” It should come as no shock to most comic e-book readers that this supposed dying of Spider-Man is much less deadly than it seems. In any case, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #13 is already solicited, and Amazing Spider-Man continues to be ongoing. Additionally, the textual solicitation content for the comic means that Spider-Man must resolve his personal murder.



Maybe that’s not the real Spider-Man who’s discovered lifeless then? One other chance entails the story te…
