I ran across this site while looking for a specific science article -
ScienceDaily: Latest Science News

It's free and covers material form a very wide array of scientific publications.

Essentially, it gives an abstract of a given article in lay terms, but also gives a link to the complete article. Some of the latter have restricted access, but many seem to be open to all and free.

Re: the 'nanobots' thing - a book by K. Eric Drexler -"Engines of Creation - The Coming Era of Nanotechnology" is/was a very interesting read for those interested in the field. A hard copy might prove a little tough to find as it was written 1986. I should re-read my paperback copy to see if & how some of his thoughts, ideas, & predictions have relevance & are in use today 27 years later.

Cheers
JB

Not quite as cool as injectable oxygen though.

A tremendous explosion has occurred in the nearby universe and major telescopes across Earth and space are investigating. Dubbed GRB 130427A, the gamma-ray burst was first detected by the Earth-orbiting Fermi and Swift satellites observing at high energies and quickly reported down to Earth.

Treating cancer with radioactive bacteria: Three wrongs make a right | The Economist

Your body's immune system eliminates foreign cells including viruses and bacteria.

Cancer cells have immune-suppressing features, which allows them to grow and metastasize despite your immune system.

So, scientists thought, maybe the immune system won't eliminate bacteria around cancer cells.

Suppose that bacteria also attacked the cancer cells?

Bose–Einstein condensate - though it may not necessarily fit the definition of 'man-made' substances - it sure is something different. Webby should be weighing in on this.

NASA’s Kepler Spacecraft in Jeopardy After Malfunction, Astronomers Say
NASA’s planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft has been crippled by the failure of one of the reaction wheels that keep it pointed, the space agency is announcing this afternoon, according to astronomers close to the situation.
If engineers cannot restore the wheel or find some other way to keep the spacecraft’s telescope pointed, it could spell a premature end to one of the most romantic and successful of NASA’s missions: the search for Earth-like planets in habitable orbits around other stars. Just last month, astronomers reported that Kepler had found two planets only slightly larger than Earth orbiting in the “Goldilocks” zone, where liquid water is possible, of a star 1,200 light-years from here. More planet candidates, even smaller and closer to being Earth-like, lurk in the pipeline, astronomers say, but they have not yet been confirmed.
