NASA scientists have mapped the global wind circulation patterns in the upper atmosphere of Mars- 120 to 300 kilometers above the Red Planet’s surface. The researchers reprogrammed probes aboard NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) spacecraft to collect wind measurements on the Red Planet.

Coronavirus may infect heart cells of Covid-19 patients, scientists say
on July 1, 2020 at 11:18 am
Researchers, including those of Indian-origin, have shown that the novel coronavirus can infect lab-grown cardiac muscle cells, indicating it may be possible for the virus to directly cause heart infection in Covid-19 patients. The study was based on experiments conducted in lab-grown heart muscle cells which were produced from unspecialised human stem cells.

Covid-19 linked to increased risk of stroke: Study
on June 28, 2020 at 3:00 pm
Covid-19 is significantly associated with an increased risk of strokes, according to a study which says patients infected with the novel coronavirus should undergo aggressive monitoring for the neurological condition. According to the researchers, including those from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in the US, Covid-19 infection is a risk factor for acute strokes.
Increased physical activity may lower sleep apnea risk: Study
on June 27, 2020 at 6:06 pm
Increased physical activity is associated with a lower risk of obstructive sleep apnea — a common sleep-related breathing disorder. The recent study was published as an accepted paper in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine. It is the largest study to date focused on the relationship between sleep apnea and levels of physical activity in the general community.
Severe Covid-19 can damage the brain, preliminary study finds
on June 26, 2020 at 9:22 am
A preliminary study of patients hospitalised with Covid-19 has found the disease can damage the brain, causing complications such as stroke, inflammation, psychosis and dementia-like symptoms in some severe cases. The findings are the first detailed look at a range of neurological complications of Covid-19, the researchers said, and underline a need for larger studies to find the mechanisms behind them.

Drug used to treat cancer might help reduce Covid-19 severity in patients: Study
on June 6, 2020 at 5:24 pm
Scientists have observed that a drug which is already approved to treat several blood cancers, is associated with reduced respiratory distress and a reduction in the overactive immune response in Covid-19 patients, an advance that may lead to a potential therapeutic for novel coronavirus infection.
