Here are the biggest science stories on November 11–17, told in 8 incredible images.
Scientists developed an injection that can repair tissue damage and even reverse paralysis after a spinal cord injury. The therapy triggers the body’s cells to repair themselves and leaves no material behind after 12 weeks.
Researchers using the ATERUI II supercomputer discovered that planets formed in rings around young stars may move after formation, leaving the rings behind. That could explain why these rings often have large gaps, but planets are rarely found within them.
The Hubble Space Telescope captured an image of a protostar forming in nebula IC 2631. These precursors to stars are hard to see without a strong infrared telescope since the dust that surrounds them blocks visible light.
