Unbelievable Technology: NASA Spider-Like Droids Could Build A Home For Mankind In Space

April 7, 2015 |

One of the consistently difficult hurdles for space exploration is cost. With dwindling governmental support the initiative has moved toward the private sector. Read More

Large Hadron Collider Is Ready To Re-Start This Weekend

April 5, 2015 | 1

Underneath some nondescript farmland near Geneva, on the border of France and Switzerland, the world’s biggest and most expensive scientific experiment is ready to re-start. LHC at the Cern laboratory – were preparing to switch it on today for the first time in two years, ahead of the next series of experiments. Read More

NASA On Alert: Huge Asteroid On Near-Collision Course With Earth

March 25, 2015 |

According to a report, a 1,000 m wide huge asteroid could pass past earth on Friday. Currently, the asteroid has been travelling at a speed more than 23,000 mph in space. Reports stated that if the mammoth asteroid, 2014-YB35, hit earth it could destroy a country and pose threat to the planet. Read More

Large Hadron Collider Ready to Push Limits of Current Physics

March 14, 2015 |

The world’s most powerful sub-atomic particle accelerator – the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (Cern) in Geneva – has been given the go-ahead to re-start after being closed for two years of maintenance, now LHC is ready to explain one of the biggest mysteries of the Universe – the nature of dark matter.

This Is What The World Would Look Like If Different Stars Replaced Our Sun

March 5, 2015 |

How a sunset might look like to a human observer if our Sun was replaced by some of the other stars in our galaxy with different sizes and magnitudes, namely: Barnard’s Star, Gliese 581, Tau Ceti, Kepler-23, Alpha Centauri A, Procyon, Sirius, Pollux, Arcturus and Aldebaran. Enjoy this amazing Photo. Read More

Does Earth have a Second Moon?

March 4, 2015 |

We all know and love the moon. We’re so assured that we only have one that we don’t even give it a specific name. It is the brightest object in the night sky, and amateur astronomers take great delight in mapping its craters and seas. To date, it is the only other heavenly body with human footprints. What you might not know is that the moon is not the Earth’s only natural satellite. Read More

Dark Matter may have Caused a Massive Extinction on Earth

February 20, 2015 |

Every 250m years the sun, with its entourage of planets, completes a circuit of the Milky Way. Its journey around its home galaxy, though, is no stately peregrination. Rather, its orbit oscillates up and down through the galactic disc. It passes through that disc, the place where most of the galaxy’s matter is concentrated, once every 30m years or so. Read More

Large Hadron Collider Ready to Push Physics Frontier

February 19, 2015 |

Two extraordinary events are underway in February in science and technology, the first in quantum physics and the other in computer security. The Large Hadron Collider at CERN will be brought back online next month to face its next challenge, to seek evidence confirming the validity of extensions to the Standard Model of physics in general, and the ominously-named ‘dark matter’, in particular.

Life on Earth may have Flourished Even Before 3.2 Billion Years Ago

February 19, 2015 |

The ancient Earth was a hostile environment marked by unpredictable climate and oxygen-deprived air over 3 billion years ago. Until this week, scientists believed that life forms came into existence, and started using Earth’s nitrogen, around 2 billion years ago. But the new research from the University of Washington changes all these previous theories. Read More

NASA: U.S will Face Historic Megadrought Soon

February 16, 2015 |

The drought in California, going into its fourth year, has been in the news, especially since California produces much of the country’s food. But a new NASA study, published this week in the journal Science Advances, suggests that the U.S. could be looking at much worse. Read More

‘Interstellar’ Science Team Explain True Black Holes

February 15, 2015 |

It may be another case of life imitating art, but the visual effects technology used for last fall’s Christopher Nolan sci-fi epic ‘Interstellar,’ may lead the way to further understanding of how real life black holes actually function – particularly the extreme power they wield, giving traction to new methods in astrophysics research.

Earth’s Inner Core has an Inner Core of its Own?

February 10, 2015 |

While there’s no prehistoric land hidden at the centre of our planet, as author Jules Verne imagined, the Earth’s core may not at all be like what scientists have led us to believe. Geologists have discovered that the Earth’s inner core – previously thought to be a solid lump of iron – may in fact have its own even smaller core within it. Read More
