Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine (WUSM) in St. Louis have spent some years investigating the links between circadian rhythm and Alzheimer’s, and have recently been making some real inroads. Following a 2018 study demonstrating how disrupted sleep can accelerate the buildup of toxic plaques associated with the disease, the team has now identified a protein implicated in the progression of the disease that appears highly regulated by the circadian rhythm, helping them join the dots and providing a potential new therapeutic target.  #health

First radio emission collected from a planet beyond our solar system #space

…the team presents for the first time a demonstration of a sustained,  long-distance (44 kilometers of fiber) teleportation of qubits of photons (quanta of light) with fidelity greater than 90%. The qubits were teleported over a fiber-optic network using state-of-the-art single-photon detectors and off-the-shelf equipment. #science #nature

65-year-old Lockheed U-2 is still at the top of its game, flying missions in an environment no other aircraft can operate in. #aviation #engineering

No Thursday edition this week, have a great festive season everyone!
