After over 4 years of trying, scientists recently created a human-pig hybrid. And not just one but over 100 of them. An international team of scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California recently announced their breakthrough in the Science journal Cell. Their human-pig chimera (the scientific name for a creature
A team of Canadian students have managed to recycle human waste into bioplastics that can be 3D printed, in a major breakthrough which, if the technology can be scaled up, will be massively beneficial to any long term space travel. The team from University of Calgary used genetically engineered E. coli bacteria to transform human
Ever wondered why your farts smell? Well when a child asked this question, The Freaky felt compelled to investigate and discovered its all to do with your mother. Your mother is responsible for the smell of your farts. Honestly. Like a signature or a fingerprint, the smell of your emissions is unique to you. And
Can elements of a person’s character – or even their soul – be transplanted along with a heart? The Freaky investigates the bizarre cases of people having heart transplants and then taking on the personalities of their donors. In 2008 Sonny Graham, a seemingly happily married 69-year-old man living in the U.S. state of
This bizarre photo is of a Chinese man growing a nose on his forehead. 22 year old Mr Lian, from the FujianProvince, damaged his nose in a car accident in 2012. He couldn’t afford reconstructive surgery at the time and subsequently his nose got infected and further ate away at his cartilage. So now surgeons
News from the frontiers of weird science: Scientists have managed to print mouse ovaries using 3D print technology implant them into infertile mice so they can have little mice babies. This is big news in the fertility world as it opens up the door for infertile women in the future to receive 3D printed ovaries.
A frog levitating thanks to the power of molecular magnetism. This frog is hovering inside a magnet (not on board a spacecraft). This is the first observation of magnetic levitation of living organisms as well as the first images of diamagnetics levitated in a normal, room-temperature environment. In fact, it is possible to levitate magnetically
Japanese scientists have produced a genetically-engineered mouse that tweets like a bird, it was revealed today. The ‘tweeting’ mouse, that sings like a bird, was created as part of the University of Osaka’s ‘Evolved Mouse Project. Scientists there are breeding genetically modified mice together to deliberately get genetic mutations. ‘Mutations are the driving force of
