Key to Battling Aging May Be in Battling Zombie Cells

The Fountain of Youth may not involve water, after all. Scientists in the U.S. have been trying out a drug that can eliminate “zombie cells,” which is the nickname for cells that suffer damage yet remain in the body indefinitely. It’s the accumulation of these cells, called senescent cells, that causes the frailty associated with aging in a person.

During a three-week trial, seniors not only showed that the drug being tested was safe, they also showed improvement in walking and other forms of movement. They also achieved higher scores in cognitive tests. The drug is designed to eliminate the zombie cells, which scientists believe is the key to slowing the physical effects of getting older.

No matter how many streetlights a city installs, some areas of every town have low visibility at night. To resolve that issue, some municipalities have envisioned a false moon that would hang above Earth, supplementing the natural light provided. The latest of these is a project out of China, where experts are working hard to erect a satellite in the year 2020.

Placed in Chengdu, experts say the satellite will be eight times as bright as the moon itself, which will provide nighttime light similar to what is seen at dusk. The project is inspired by a French artist’s rendering of a series of mirrors suspended above our planet.
