Many of you may not know the latest scientific discoveries which are being done. There are a lot of scientific discoveries and inventions which are being done all-time in the current days. Many papers are being published and copyrights are also being filed regularly for many new discoveries. Among them, some incredible inventions and discoveries do come. There are more numbers of discoveries available in the current scenario which would bring out the wow factor in you. This could make you feel amazing and awesome. Today I’m going list out some of the amazing discoveries dedicated to science.

LANDING A ROCKET VERTICALLY-
Generally, landing a rocket on the planet vertically is felt to be difficult in achieving it. Usually, space agencies like NASA and the European space agency would either dispose of the rockets in oceans or would burn them in the space. But a private agency called SpaceX has successfully landed the rocket vertically on a floating drone ship. This goal was created by the CEO of this agency Elon Musk. This discovery is going to help much in saving the amount of money by making the possibility of reusing of the rockets.
STEM CELL TREATMENT TO MAKE STROKE PATIENTS TO WALK-
It was discovered that the modified human stem cells being injected into the brains of several chronic stroke patients showed out good healing that too little faster than the expected period. It was done as a trial in Stanford University school of Medicine by providing mild anesthesia to the patients. It didn’t show any negative effects except a mild headache. The healing includes mobility of patients who were limited to wheelchairs previously.
EARTH’S SECOND MOON-
NASA scientists discovered a new quasi-satellite of earth. It is an asteroid which is found to be having a stable earth orbit, which makes it as a constant near-Earth companion. Though we cannot see this second satellite, NASA confirmed its existence and named it as 2016 HO3. It is very far from Earth and Sun’s gravitational impact on it is more than the Earth. But it orbits around Earth and follows the orbital path of the Sun. It is smaller than the moon with dimensions around 40-100 meters across.
CARBON DIOXIDE SOLID STONE-
Scientists in Iceland found a method to make the greenhouse effect causing gas known as CO2 into a solid stone. This helps in capturing this gas to enter into the atmosphere which would cause trouble to the atmosphere around the Earth. This is done by pumping this gas into the volcanic rock, which makes it into limestone. Naturally, it takes thousands of years to happen. But they are able to do this in two years.
ETERNAL DATA STORAGE METHOD-
In the University of Southampton, scientists discovered a new way of storing and retrieving data using a Nanostructured glass disk which is very small as an American quarter. It can hold up to 360TB of data which can be written using ultrafast laser through short and intense light pulses.
