Professor Radman has been honoured for his discoveries in the field of the molecular mechanisms of DNA damage repair and their role in carcinogenesis and evolution and for the discovery of the mechanism that enables the bacterium Deinococcus radiodurans to \"come back to life\" in a few hours by repairing and reorganizing its genetic material.

These tiny organisms are naturally resistant to aging and dying, researchers able to take them from their natural marine environments to \'die\' before being \'resurrected\' when immersed in water again... Increasing life expectancy is probably the biggest threat facing humanity around the globe, bigger even than climate change,” said Thomas Kirkwood, professor at the Institute for Ageing Health at Newcastle University, UK, at Biovision, the 7th World Life Sciences Forum in Lyon, France.

I am impatiently longing for a much better life of the humankind.

Ja ne bih, iz poštovanja prema osobama, išao hijerarhijom jer znam da ću pogrešit nešto nego ću ić sadržajno...

Scientists in Croatia have created probably some of the world's biggest soap bubbles to attract children to science.
