Canadian Scientists have created Nanorobots, that not unlike G.I. Joe's Nanomites, that "can travel down the bloodstream to administer drugs precisely by targeting a tumor's cancer cells."

The advantages of injecting the tiny robots are that the medicine doesn't injure other organs and tissue, but is deposited exactly where it's needed. The dosage of drug needed could even be reduced, decreasing the toxicity inside a cancer patient's body, which is good all-around.

For an explanation of the cool technology, go here and check out this video:



Let's just hope they don't go rogue and try to destroy Paris.

Congrats to Mas Sumbramanian and his team out at Oregon State University for the discovery! He said the following in an official OSU press release:

"It was serendipity, actually; a happy, accidental discovery.

The basic crystal structure we’re using for these pigments was known before, but no one had ever considered using it for any commercial purpose, including pigments.

Ever since the early Egyptians developed some of the first blue pigments, the pigment industry has been struggling to address problems with safety, toxicity and durability."

Neil deGrasse Tyson took to Twitter in support of the LGBTQ community just days after what many have called the deadliest mass shooting in America at an Orlando nightclub.  He found a way to communicate this touching tribute the only way he knows how, science!

Possible spoilers ahead? 

The people who created this used a "machine learning algorithm" to figure out who is most likely to die next. They go into a much deeper explanation about their initial data gathering from the books and how they use those factors to predict who's next on the website.

They've also got a ranking system to show you who you can expect to die, although these seem to be based on what the books have revealed so far so we may find out if these predictions come true when season six begins.

This is a step in the right direction toward self-driving trucks. This is part of the European Truck Platooning Challenge where trucks follow each other, connected by Wifi, to get to their destination. Unlike with human drivers, these trucks can stay much closer to each other on the road and it actually saves a lot of money in gas.
