Scientists have found a “highly unusual” particle enriched with uranium in the skies over Alaska’s Aleutian Islands. The source of the substance, which is typically used in nuclear fuel and bombs, is still unclear. The mysterious substance “containing a very small amount of enriched uranium” was found at an altitude of 7km (4.3 miles) above Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, according to a... 

Study suggests obesity doesn't have to be problematic

Scientists in the US, where the number of overweight people is soaring, say that obesity does not automatically lead to metabolic changes in the body that can cause health problems, like diabetes and heart ailments. Researchers from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis asked 20 obese men and women to pack on an additional 15 pounds (7 kilograms) over several months to analyze how... 

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... 

US scientists working on mind-controlled drones for military use

Post Pic
A U.S. Air Force MQ-1 Predator unmanned aerial vehicle University researchers in Texas say they are designing a new type of drone, one that could be controlled simply and only with a soldier’s mind. If successful, the project would allow soldiers to command future drones in ways beyond simple navigational commands. While troops would be able to order a drone to “move left” and “move right,”... 

Tiny motors set to motion in live human cells

Post Pic
For the first time tiny rocket-shaped synthetic motors have been placed inside live human cells. What has been a staple of science fiction is now a promising method to treat cancer, US scientists say. The researchers from Penn State University have successfully embedded synthetic nanomotors into HeLa cells, an immortal line of human cervical cancer cells typically used in research studies, according... 

US scientists: Wind turbines cause Global Warming

Post Pic
Researchers have suggested that wind turbines and lenticular cloud wind turbines can affect local weather by increasing night-time temperature. According to the study published in Nature Climate Change, the temperature of the area near the newly constructed wind farms are higher than next-door areas. Using satellite data, US scientists concluded that the effect is caused by turbines bringing relatively... 

US Scientists say Earth may be the Only Planet with Life

Giant ocean whirlpools puzzle scientists

Post Pic
US scientists discovered two giant whirlpools in the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Guyana and Suriname. It became a sensational discovery because this part of the ocean has been studied thoroughly, and no one expected anything like that to appear in the area. More importantly, no one can understand where the whirlpools came from and what surprises they may bring to people. According to Brazilian...
