Have you ever thought if it was possible to make a burger without anything you can get from the kitchen? (And yes that includes the spatula!) Well think no more because a group of scientists from Maastricht University in the Netherlands had just achieved so by using test tubes! They’ve found a way to create meat that might gain a place on dinner plates — and straight out of a laboratory!

Last week was Computer Science Education Week and at Launch we hosted An Hour of Code as part of the initiative.
It was quite a busy hour!

You must’ve wondered at least once about the creation of Earth… or even that of the UNIVERSE! Have you ever wondered how?
Well, scientists have been inspired by the same thought! Recently, the 2013 Nobel Prize winners came up with an interesting theory of an interesting name called “Higgsogenesis”. The first part of the name “Higgs” came from the Higgs boson, which is a particle, and it basically produced different matter and antimatter particles (fun fact: when antimatter and matter come together, they annihilate each other and create an explosion!).
