The genetic code is one of the most staggering artifacts from Mother Nature. Nearly Universal, even bacteria possess the same codones our cells use to specify our aminoacids. The precise UCAG patterns characterizing the codones' bases. Its usefulness as template to instruct the assembly of proteins from an mRNA sequence through the ribosomes, the gene expression regulators, which decode the sequence into proteins.
I'm excited for Industry 5.0, extending the long-standing 4.0 smart factories, expecially for the introduction of Cobots, also known as Collaborative Robots. They will allow designers and craftspeople to produce goods with unpredecented speed and accuracy without disregarding personalization, giving workers more meaningful jobs, stifling alienation in that bringing them personally back into industrial production.
Although brain size is nowadays still frequently linked to intelligence, long ago scientists noticed that it weakly links in human intelligence, and that the difference is probably to ascribe to thicker neurons in the temporal lobe of the brain generating electrical signals with highter processing rates, thanks to larger, more complex dendrites tracking synaptic imputs more accurately due to faster action potentials.
Although a photon of light takes merely 8 minutes to get to the Earth from the surface of the Sun, it can actually take thousands to millions of years to get from the core of the Sun to its surface due the core's immense density. Light is released by nuclear fusion and over the course of all these years it will be absorbed by atoms and emitted repeatedly until slowly making it to the Sun's surface, exiting the Star.
