A long-sought goal of creating particles that can emit a colorful fluorescent glow in a biological environment, and that could be precisely manipulated into position within living cells, has been achieved by a team of researchers at MIT and several other institutions. The finding is reported this week in the journal Nature Communications.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is spending $50 million to fund research teams that it hopes will provide significant contributions to its astrobiology program and planetary missions. The funding from the U.S.
Carlos Slim, the Mexican telecom tycoon worth over $80 billion, believes life would be better with a three-day work week. "You should have more time for you during all of your life -- not when you're 65 and retired," Slim told CNNMoney's Christine Romans on Tuesday.

Physicist Peter Eisenberger had expected colleagues to react to his idea with skepticism. He was claiming, after all, to have invented a machine that could clean the atmosphere of its excess carbon dioxide, making the gas into fuel or storing it underground.
Penises grown in laboratories could soon be tested on men by scientists developing technology to help people with congenital abnormalities, or who have undergone surgery for aggressive cancer or suffered traumatic injury. Researchers at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, are assessing engineered penises for safety, function and durability.
If you want to know the future of technology, should you ask a technological futurologist? On the one hand, it's their job to think about What Comes Next and What It All Means in regards to devices, connectivity and the digital services that they enable.
Tesla and SpaceX C.E.O.
