World’s largest aircraft “weeks” away from first UK test flight

World’s largest aircraft “weeks” away from first UK test flight

Airlander 10, the world's largest and longest aircraft, is preparing to gently glide out of its gargantuan shed—which is incidentally the largest hangar in the UK—at Cardington Airfield in Bedfordshire. Earlier this month, Airlander 10, which is being built by Hybrid Air Vehicles (HAV), was officially named Martha Gwyn by the duke of Kent.

Fermi Helps Link Cosmic Neutrino to Blazar Blast

Nearly 10 billion years ago, the black hole at the center of a galaxy known as PKS B1424-418 produced a powerful outburst. Now astronomers using data from NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and other space- and ground-based observatories have shown that a record-breaking neutrino seen around the same time likely was born in the same event.

What is the “vice” in “vice president”?

We often make fun of the second-place office, but the vice presidency is an important one: It’s a heartbeat away from the presidency, as candidates consider when vetting their running mates. The etymology of the title bears out the importance of the vice presidency: in Latin, vice means “in place of” or “in succession to.” The Oxford English Dictionary (OED) first cites vice-president in 1574, when “Sergius the Vice-president of Asia” must have really balanced out the ticket.

93% of leukaemia patients in remission after an experimental T cell therapy

93% of leukaemia patients in remission after an experimental T cell therapy

Doctors are reporting "extraordinary" results after the first clinical trial of an experimental type of immunotherapy against advanced leukaemia. The new approach was tested on 29 late-stage leukaemia patients who'd exhausted all other options. After the therapy, 27 of them went into remission – that's an incredible 93 percent success rate. One patient who wasn't successful the first time around went into remission after a second, higher dose.
