Alien Environment Recreated on Earth

Post Pic
Scientists have determined that chemical hazes and clouds are able to impact surface temperature and a planet’s ability to support life. A team of scientists at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore have for the first time managed to recreate the atmosphere of nine exoplanets in a laboratory setting “I think we are going to learn a lot about [our] Solar System from doing these experiments.... 

Tabula Rasa Destroyed, DNA Tests Can Predict Intelligence for the First Time

Post Pic
From The Telegraph, (behind a paywall, for full article see here) Scientists showed for the first time that a person’s IQ can be predicted just by studying their DNA. In the largest ever study looking at the genetic basis for intelligence, researchers at the University of Edinburgh and Harvard University discovered hundreds of new genes linked to brain power. But nobody knew which were the ‘smart... 

Scientists create human-sheep chimera with hopes of affordable organ transplants

Post Pic
A team of scientists has grown embryos inside a sheep that contain human stem cells, moving the sci-fi idea of developing human organs inside animals one step closer to reality, which has sparked ethical concerns. The scientific breakthrough could potentially save the lives of thousands of people who are in a dire need of vital organ transplants. While many patients die before they move up to the... 

Human genes ‘continue to function after we die’

Post Pic
Cells in the body continue to function for a period after death, new Spanish research claims, with some genes even becoming more active when an individual shuffles off this mortal coil. Scientists hope that this new discovery will help forensic scientists more accurately pinpoint the time of a person’s death. An international team examined 36 different types of tissue from 540 corpses to come to... 

Scientists Discover Major Reason Behind Cancer, May Find Cure for the Disease

Post Pic
Researchers have taken a new step toward tackling the ruthless disease claiming some eight million lives annually. Scientists came to the conclusion that changes in the immune system are a key factor that provokes cancer, along with genetic mutations. The prevention and treatment of cancer should be based on immune-related factors rather than only genetic ones, a research team from the University... 

Russian, German Physicists Create 'Impossible' Material for Quantum Computers

Post Pic
The researchers, supervised by Professor Alexei Ustinov, the head of the MISiS Superconducting Metamaterials Lab, has created the world’s first metamaterial-based ‘mirror’ qubits, which can be used as a control element in superconducting electrical circuits. The breakthrough was led by scientists from Russia’s MISiS National University of Science & Technology, in cooperation... 

Scientists Find Out What Mysterious 'Sea People' Ruined Bronze Age Civilizations

Post Pic
A team of Swiss and Dutch scientists says they have deciphered a 3,200-year-old inscription on a stone which was found in the 19th century in what would become modern-day Turkey, which sheds light on what they call “one of the greatest Mediterranean puzzles,” namely, the identity of the mysterious ‘Sea People” (most likely Vikings) who ruined Bronze Age civilizations. The researchers... 

Mysterious spike in radioactive particles across Europe baffles scientists

Post Pic
Radiation monitors have detected radioactive particles in the air across Europe, although the source remains a mystery. Germany’s Office for Radiation Protection reported increased radioactivity in parts of Central and Western Europe over the last week. The heightened levels were detected at several trace measuring stations in Europe, and at six locations in Germany. The particles are ruthenium-106,... 

Gravitational Waves: 'We Now Have the Birth of New Way to Look at the Universe'

Post Pic
With the 2017 Nobel Prize in physics having been awarded to three US scientists for the detection of gravitational waves, one of them, Barry Barish, a professor emeritus at California’s Institute of Technology (Caltech), said that the discovery was bound to change mankind’s traditional view of the universe. Researchers Rainer Weiss, Kip Thorne and Barry Barish who will share the 9 million... 

Russian scientists work on secret microwave bomb

Post Pic
Russian scientists develop radioelectronic ammunition capable of disabling enemy’s equipment with the help of a powerful microwave impact. Adviser to first deputy director general of Radioelectronic Technologies concern, Vladimir Mikheev, said that the technology would make it possible to create effect of interference to temporary put enemy arms systems out of operation or even disable them... 

Japanese scientists predict destruction of American continent

Post Pic
Scientists at the Earthquake Research Institute (ERI) at the University of Tokyo prepared a closed research and recommendations for the UN and governments of world’s leading countries. The report contains a number of warnings about 2017. Unfortunately, most of those forecasts have already come true. India – January 4, with a magnitude of 6.7 – our forecast was at the beginning of... 

French scientists discover Schizophrenia Cure through Magnetic Pulses

Post Pic
Researchers have discovered the part of the brain that produces the “voices” that some schizophrenia sufferers are tormented by and managed to partially silence them by using magnetic pulse therapy. Schizophrenia is a serious long-term mental health problem, with symptoms that can include delusions and hearing voices, which is called Auditory Verbal Hallucination. About 70 per cent of people with... 

Indian Scientists Discover Supercluster of Galaxies

Post Pic
Indian scientists have now claimed to have discovered an extremely large supercluster of galaxies. The supercluster of galaxies is as big as 20 million billion suns and named Saraswati by scientists from the Pune-based Inter University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IUCAA). Discovered by four scientists — Shishir Sankhyayan, a PhD student at the Pune-based Indian Institute of Science Education... 

Another Earth-Size World May Lurk in the Outer Solar System

Post Pic
A planet-size object may be orbiting the sun in the icy reaches of the solar system beyond Pluto. Scientists at the University of Arizona’s Lunar and Planetary Laboratory (LPL) have determined that an unseen object with a mass somewhere between that of Earth and Mars could be lurking in the Kuiper Belt, a region beyond Neptune filled with thousands of icy asteroids, comets and dwarf planets. In... 

Yellowstone swarmed with earthquakes, Doomsdayers predict eruption

Post Pic
The supervolcano under Yellowstone National Park has once again become a point of focus for doomsdayers after scientists picked up some ominous earthquake activity this month. Scientists from the University of Utah, responsible for monitoring the supervolcano in Wyoming, said a “swarm” of 464 earthquakes began on June 12 – the biggest being a 4.5 magnitude shudder on June 15. “The epicenter...
