Traveling at the speed of light means accelerating to 186,000 miles per second, and no imagine achieving that going around the Earth once. That is exactly what ‘Airplane Mode’ shows us in this video. Technically speaking, the only way for light to travel around the Earth is to trap it in optic fibers, which we know isn’t possible, but if it were, it would take around 0.013 seconds.
Researchers from the University of Cambridge and other institutions took part in the world’s first clinical trial of lab-grown red blood cells for transfusion into another person. If further trials are a success, these manufactured blood cells could revolutionize treatments for people with blood disorders like sickle cell and rare blood types.
