Thanks to advances in 3-D printing, it’s now possible to whip up everything from pizza to prosthetics to human organs with the push of a button.

Now researchers have created a 3-D printer that works on the atomic scale, assembling complex molecules from scratch. And they say their molecule-making machine could revolutionize the drug-development process and simplify the fabrication of solar cells and other high-tech products.

A drug discovery revolution? “We’re really excited about the immediate impacts that this will have on drug discovery,” Dr. Martin D. Burke, a professor of chemistry at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign and one of the researchers, says in a video released by the university.

Lab-Grown Penises May Show Up Way Sooner Than You Thought

Laboratory-grown penises might sound like something from bad science fiction, but scientists are working to make them a reality. In fact, human trials of lab-grown penises may be coming soon, thanks in part to new funding from the Armed Forces Institute of Regenerative Medicine.

“The goal is to conduct a clinical trial within the next four to five years,” Karen Richardson, a spokesperson for the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, told The Huffington Post in an email.

Researchers at Wake Forest made headlines in 2009 for growing penile erectile tissue in a lab and building a “functional engineered solid organ” for rabbits, and now are making progress on a human version.

These Bears Are Having Lots Of Oral Sex, And Scientists Think They Know Why

Birds do it. Bees do it. Bears do it too–but some bears do it a bit differently.

Researchers from Poland are reporting that a pair of male brown bears at a zoo in Croatia have been engaging in oral sex–and lots of it. Over the course of 116 hours of recent observation, the animals engaged in fellatio 28 times. That’s about one act of fellatio for every four hours, with each act ranging in duration from 1 minute to 4 minutes.

Scientists Try 3-D Printer To Build Human Heart

It may sound far-fetched, but scientists are attempting to build a human heart with a 3-D printer.

Ultimately, the goal is to create a new heart for a patient with their own cells that could be transplanted. It is an ambitious project to first, make a heart and then get it to work in a patient, and it could be years — perhaps decades — before a 3-D printed heart would ever be put in a person.

The technology, though, is not all that futuristic: Researchers have already used 3-D printers to make splints, valves and even a human ear.

Here’s The Crazy Stuff That Happens To Your Body After You Die (VIDEO)

Whatever your beliefs, most people would agree that the body we leave behind when we depart this mortal coil is just a heap of bones and flesh. But what happens to those leftovers? Assuming that nature is left to its own devices, our bodies undergo a fairly standard process of decomposition that can take anywhere from two weeks to two years.

Japan Loses Against Australia, UN In Fight To Continue Annual Whaling

Japan’s highly-contentious whaling campaign experienced a major setback on Monday when a United Nations court ruled that the island nation could no longer continue its annual whale hunt in the waters around Antarctica.

Japan’s highly-contentious whaling campaign experienced a major setback on Monday when a United Nations court ruled that the island nation could no longer continue its annual whale hunt in the waters around Antarctica.

The International Court of Justice ruled in favor of Australia, which had sued Japan and rejected that country’s argument that the whaling has been conducted mainly for scientific reasons.

“The court concludes, that the special permits granted by Japan for the killing, taking and treating of whales in connection with JARPA II are not purposes of scientific research,” the presiding judge, Peter Tomka, of Slovakia, said referring to the Japanese Whale Research Program under Special Permit in the Antarctic (JARPA).

Dark Matter Disk Could Have Killed Dinosaurs, Scientists Say

A thin disk of dark matter running through the Galaxy might be behind the large meteorite strikes that are thought to be responsible for some of Earth’s mass extinctions, including that of the dinosaurs, two theoretical physicists have proposed.

The model is based on a hypothetical form of dark matter described by the authors and their collaborators last year as a means to solve a separate cosmic conundrum. The existence of such a ‘dark disk’ could be tested soon by astronomical observations.

Mario Livio, an astrophysicist at the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, who was not involved in the research, says that the latest idea, which brings together two speculative and very different theories, is “very interesting”, even if the evidence supporting it is far from compelling.
