A "virgin" meteorite from Michigan can tell us the story of how the solar system was built

Scientists have just informed that the meteorite contains virgin organic compounds that may be a valuable clue on how life was formed on Earth. It was possible to keep them only thanks to the efficient reaction of the "meteorite hunter" Robert Ward, who, two days after the landing of this unique specimen, on January 20, 2018, found its fragment on the frozen Lake Strawberry Lake. He used the NASA weather radar for this purpose, because the meteorite fragments were the size of hail, so it would be difficult to find them simply by combing the area.

The French army is given the green light for bionic trooper modifications

And we're talking about medical therapies, prostheses and implants that improve physical, cognitive, perceptual and psychological capabilities, plus location tracking permission and communication with armed systems and other soldiers.
