Hazañas cientificas en 2023

By Duncan Mil

November 30, 2023 - Entre los más impotantes logros científicos este año están los avances en energía de fusión nuclear de científicos en Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, que preparan el camino para desarrollo potencial en el futuro de la energía limpia.

The experiment in July generated a burst of energy measured at 3.88 megajoules (MJ) after 192 lasers delivered 2.05MJ to the target. 89% more energy came out of the target than went into it -- equivalent to almost two sticks of dynamite.

The Livermore results raise hopes that fusion can one day generate bountiful amounts of electricity without producing greenhouse gases.

Earlier in April, the European Space Agency launched its Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer -- Juice -- to study the Jupiter system. Jupiter’s moons, Ganymede, Europa and Callisto, are thought to have oceans beneath their surfaces. Juice will explore their hidden oceans, map their icy shells, and investigate their interiors.

In November, the UK approved gene therapy as a potential cure for two inherited blood disorders.

“This is a world-first and a significant moment for researchers, clinicians and, most of all, people with sickle cell disease and beta thalassaemia,” said Professor Josu de la Fuente, Consultant Haematologist & Director of the Paediatric BMT Programme at Imperial College London Healthcare NHS Trust.
