KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Moto2 rider, Hafizh Syahrin displayed another splendid performance today to secure fourth place at the Catalan Grand Prix in Spain after crossing the finishing line in 42 minutes 42.124 seconds.

The Petronas talent development rider, who started from 13th position on the grid spent most parts of the 23-lap race battling with the frontrunners before he edged Thomas Luthi in the final lap to match his season’s best result in the opening round in Qatar in March.

Johann Zarco of France won the race in 42:31.347s followed by Alex Rins (Spain) in second place and Takaaki Nakagami (Japan) who made up the podium. The duo clocked 42’36.627s and 42’40.660s respectively.

“The bike was perfect and I could managed my race well. We were a bit concerned earlier on with the high track temperature but everything turned out well in the end.

“Thank you to Petronas and our other sponsors for believing in us. For sure we want to do better and we will continue to work hard,” the Petronas Raceline Malaysia rider was quoted as saying in statement issued by Petronas.

Picking up 13 points from this leg, Hafizh moves up to fifth place in the Moto2 world championship standings with 60 points. Alex Rins leads the field with 116 points.

Meanwhile, team manager Barry Leong, who was pleased with the result, said Hafizh and the team did a great job for the weekend.

“Hafizh showed his composure to keep on pushing and fight until the end. It was a tense race all the way after he shot up to 5th at the first turn. Well done,” he said.

Wildcard rider, Ramdan Rosli of Petronas AHM Malaysia just managed to finish in 19th place.

In the Moto3, both Khairul Idham Pawi of Honda Team Asia and Adam Norrodin of Drive M7 SIC Racing Team did not manage to finish the race.

人造子宮動物實驗再獲成功,綿羊胎兒健康存活並出生

星期四,21/09/2017 美國費城的研究人員首次嘗試用人造子宮體外培育綿羊胎兒,獲得成功。如今,澳大利亞的科學家重複了這一實驗,綿羊胎兒在人造子宮內存活一周,之後健康出生。這項技術的最終目的是幫助人類早產兒平安度過發育的關鍵期。不過,出於謹慎考慮,研究人員稱五年內不會進行臨床實驗。 人造子宮是一個充滿液體的塑料袋,裡面的液體模擬真實母體子宮內的羊水。另有一個外界的氧合器(oxygenator)模擬胎盤的功能,負責氧循環。 人造子宮由胎兒的心臟來驅動。隨著胎兒發育,各個器官逐漸長大,在此過程中,心臟被密切監控,確保不會負載過重。 研究人員稱這項技術為「體外子宮環境」(ex-vivo uterine environment)。此前,美國費城兒童醫院用該方法成功培養了綿羊胎兒。現在,西澳大學、澳洲婦女嬰兒研究基金會和日本東北大學醫院的研究人員重複了實驗,並獲成功。 兩項研究中用到的都是 105-115 天大的綿羊胎兒,相當於人類 23 周的胎兒。 在此次重複實驗中,綿羊胎兒在人造子宮內發育了一周,之後健康出生,無腦部損傷。 美國每年大約有 3 …

最新研究结果试图解释月球形成之谜

星期四,21/09/2017 以色列和法国科学家最新发表在《自然》杂志上的报告说,月球可能是在同地球成分极其相似的一个天体撞击地球之后形成的。 这一理论显然有助于解释为什么地球和月球的组成远比科学家先前期待的要相近得多的原因。 科学家同时在《自然》杂志上发表了另外两篇文章,报告了先前不为人知的月球岩石中存在的细微差别。 科学家表示,这些最新的研究结果就月球的形成提供了更为可信和清晰的信息。 以色列和法国科学家在他们的报告中模拟了内层太阳系形成早期的动荡历史,对可能发生的撞击进行了量化处理。 模拟显示,地球在早期可能受到其他可能成为太阳系行星的天体的一系列撞击。 在这一系列的撞击中,最后一次撞击来自一个质量大约是地球十分之一的行星天体,所产生的碎片最终结合在一起形成了月球。 科学家过去相信,构成月球的大部分物质应该来自于撞击地球的天体,而这样的天体成分应该同地球存在着巨大的差异。 但是,事实并非如此。 科学家承认,地球同月球成分的高度一致性是上述大撞击理论所面临的挑战。 参与这项最新模拟研究的科学家表示,撞击地球的行星很有可能具有同地球极为相似的组成,这使得科学家只能在月球材料中发现非常微小的差别。 参与这项研究的以色列科学家佩列茨(Dr Hagai Perets)说,“我们发现,许多撞击行星与被撞击行星的成分非常相近,就像地球与月球的成分一样相近。” …
