Near-Earth Objects (NEOs)

Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) are comets and asteroids that have been nudged by the gravitational attraction of nearby planets into orbits that allow them to enter the Earth’s neighborhood. Most asteroids are in what is called “the main belt” between Mars and Jupiter. The vast majority of near-Earth asteroids have come from the inner part of the main belt, where their orbits were altered by mutual collisions and by the gravitational influence of Jupiter and Mars.

The key to healthy longer life: Telomere

Each time a cell divides and replicates, the DNA at the end of telomeres shorten. Since cell division happens throughout life, telomeres get shorter and shorter as we age. When the telomeres run out, the cell becomes inactive or dies, which leads to disease.

The key to healthy longer life: Telomere

Scientists knew a lot about telomeres, and they continue to find new evidence about the role telomeres play in the aging process on a cellular level. The 2009 Nobel Prize in Physiology/Medicine was awarded jointly to three genetic researchers Elizabeth H. Blackburn, Carol W. Greider and Jack W. Szostak “for the discovery of how chromosomes are protected by telomeres and the enzyme telomerase”.
