It may seem that we know a lot more about the Moon than we do about any other celestial body. However, our natural satellite still hides many mysteries. There was time on Earth, when there was no Moon in the sky In the V century BC, Greek philosopher and astronomer Anaxagoras of Clazomenae wrote that according to his sources, the Moon appeared after the Earth was born. In the III century BC, Apollonius... 

The living dead exist for real

For centuries, people sincerely believed that the dead can rise from their graves. The most famous character is Dracula. In Lower Saxony, Germany, archaeologists found evidence to prove the existence of such zombies. Legends about vampires and zombies accompany the literary history of mankind. Not that long ago, in the area of ​​the town of Stade (a Hanseatic town in Germany, located in Lower... 

Breakthrough device heralds future of cancer detection

Post Pic
A brand new device, called Miriam, could simplify regular cancer screenings. Early cancer detection can save millions of lives but current diagnostic methods remain costly and invasive. However, a new startup is developing a device which could detect dozens of cancers with a single blood test. The Miriam test platform was recently presented at the TEDGlobal 2014 conference in Rio de Janeiro by Jorge... 

Diversity losing support among white people as they become minority

Post Pic
Psychologists at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) have concluded a study to see if White people have differing views on “diversity” as we become a minority. Professor Yuen Huo and doctoral student Felix Danbold from UCLA gathered 98 White people around the US, split them into two groups, and told the groups one of two statements. The first statement was based on Census predictions:... 

Black Holes DON’T Exist and the Big Bang is MYTH, Scientist Offers Mathematical Proof

Post Pic
A scientist from University of North Carolina states she has mathematical proof that black holes (illustrated) can’t exist. She said it is impossible for stars to collapse and form a singularity. Previously, scientists thought stars larger than the sun collapsed under their own gravity and formed black holes as they died. When a huge star many times the mass of the sun comes to the end of its... 

Super-hungry black hole gobbles star at rate previously thought impossible

Post Pic
An “ultraluminous” black hole P13 in a remote galaxy is consuming a gas cloud belonging to a neighboring star about ten times faster than scientists previously believed was possible. About 12 million light years from Earth, on the outskirts of the galaxy NGC 7793 the developments around a “luminous” black hole, known as P13, have caught the attention of astronomers. The scientists were amazed... 

New crystal steals oxygen from air, paves way for long, long plunge

Post Pic
The crystalline material changes color when absorbing or releasing oxygen. Crystals are black when they are saturated with oxygen and pink when the oxygen has been released again. Danish scientists have invented a revolutionary crystalline material that can absorb and store oxygen in high concentrations. A bucket of such material can suck the oxygen out of a room, which could potentially wave goodbye... 

Sub-atomic particle observed, both matter & antimatter

Post Pic
After 80 years of painstaking experimentation, scientists have directly observed a sub-atomic particle that is its own antiparticle. The breakthrough promises a leap forward in quantum computing and potentially shows the path to finding dark matter. The particles are called the Majorana fermions, after the Italian scientist who proposed their existence back in 1937. Quantum theory was in its infancy... 

Failing smell sense likely death sign

Post Pic
A study shows that a declining sense of smell could be sign of death approaching. Flopping a simple smell test as a senior could predict one’s approaching demise, a new study shows. Thirty-nine percent of the subjects of the study, which was published on Wednesday, who failed the test died within just five years. This was compared to the 19 percent among those with moderate smell loss and just 10... 

GM’s new 2015 Chevrolet Corvette spy car illegal in many states

Post Pic
General Motors is scrambling to prevent owners of the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette from breaking the law with the car’s high-tech recording device. Apparently, the company never got the memo that secret recordings are illegal in many states. One of the new features of GM’s sports car is a part of the Performance Data Recorder called “Valet Mode.” The high-tech equipment allows ‘Vette owners to... 

New Car Exhaust Attachment Eliminates Emissions to Zero, No More Taxes?

Post Pic
The carbon dioxide from car exhausts is one of the biggest contributors to air pollution, which allegedly also leads to the greenhouse effect and contributes to the so-called global warming hoax… even though it has been proven real scientists (instead of “specialists” such as Al Gore) that the one and only who dictates the temperatures on Earth is the Sun and only the Sun. CO2tube... 

Argentina workers burn US flags after auto parts maker fires 300 workers

Post Pic
Workers laid off by an American auto parts company in Argentina have burnt US flags during a protest march on Washington’s embassy in the country’s capital, Buenos Aires. The Wednesday evening protest rally was triggered by job losses at a manufacturing plant run by US auto parts maker Lear as the Argentine automotive industry reels from an ailing economy. Hundreds of Argentinean workers, many... 

3D ‘invisibility cloak’ unveiled by NY scientists

Post Pic
A news ‘invisibility’ cloaking device has been unveiled by US scientists, which they say can be constructed at home, causes no distortion of objects in the background, and can conceal objects in 3D from different angles. Scientists from upstate New York’s University of Rochester have managed to create the device, which looks like a set of optometrist’s equipment and can bend light around... 

FAA approves unmanned aircraft usage in movie and TV production

Post Pic
Six movie making and television companies have finally been given a go-ahead to use drones for filming after the FAA endorsed their requests for exemptions from a ban on commercial drone operations in the US, paving way for further easing. With the government’s announcement, six companies, Aerial MOB LLC, Astraeus Aerial, HeliVideo Productions LLC, Pictorvision Inc., Vortex Aerial and Snaproll Media... 

US Astronomer finds Exoplanet with Atmosphere that contains Water

Post Pic
Size comparison of HAT-P-11b (gray) with Neptune Astronomers have detected water vapor in the atmosphere of an exoplanet, an extrasolar planet, which does not orbit the Sun. The planet is the size of Neptune and about four times the size of Earth. It orbits a star some 130 light years from Earth. HAT-P-11b’s atmosphere was also found to contain copious amounts of hydrogen. Atmospheres are telltales...
