Apparently Researchers are Giving the Planet 10yrs to be Saved

Is a second earth being concealed?

The planet, as we know it, has been given a deadline: 10 years. According to the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis, if humans don’t reduce greenhouse gas emissions drastically and maintain carbon sinks, like forests, then the results will be catastrophic for the climate. But they’ve developed a model

Does Life Exist 10KM Below Sea Floor?

microbes

LIFE might eke out an existence far deeper inside Earth than we imagined. Samples from a mud volcano contain biological signatures that suggest microbes lived in the material when it was several kilometres beneath the ocean floor.

“We might have a very big biosphere below our feet that’s very hard to get to,” says

Warming seas and increasing acidification could mean starvation and extinction for creatures that live in the abyss of the deep ocean.

Organisms that live in the abyss, such as a sea cucumber known as the “sea pig”, could be threatened by temperature changes.

LONDON, 3 March, 2017 – Climate change could More…

Nano-discs That can Clear out Cancer Cells

New research is being conducted to develop nanotechnology that teaches your immune system to destroy tumor cells, giving hope to the 14.5 million Americans with a history of cancer. This research will need a very long time until it is available for treatment but recent advancements is cancer treatment are leaving a lot to

NASA Proposes Trip to Nearest Star, Alpha Cetauri

1-earthsizedpl

Nasa researchers have joined forces with Stephen Hawking to build a nano-starship that can travel one-fifth the speed of light.

If successful, the ship, called “StarChip” could reach Earth’s closest star system, Alpha Centauri, in 20 years.

Stephen Hawking announced the Breakthrough Starshot project in April, for which he is joined by a team

“Star in a Jar” Fusion Reactor Promises Endless Energy

deuterium-tritium capsule

For several decades now, scientists from around the world have been pursuing a ridiculously ambitious goal: They hope to develop a nuclear fusion reactor that would generate energy in the same manner as the sun and other stars, but down here on Earth.

Incorporated into terrestrial power plants, this

Drug Created In Student Lab for Ridiculously Low Cost

Daraprim drug’s key ingredient recreated by high school students in Sydney for just $20

For $US20, a group of high school students has created 3.7 grams of an active ingredient used in the medicine Daraprim, which would sell in the United States for between $US35,000 and $US110,000.

Key points: Sydney Grammar students recreate

Researchers are actually Alarmed at the rate of Antarctic Ice Melt

A key glacier in Antarctica is breaking apart from the inside out, suggesting that the ocean is weakening ice on the edges of the continent.

The Pine Island Glacier, part of the ice shelf that bounds the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, is one of two glaciers that researchers believe are most likely to

DNA Offers Proof of Unknown Human Relative

Traces of long-lost human cousins may be hiding in current people’s DNA, a new computer analysis suggests.

People from Melanesia, a area in the South soothing encompassing Papua New Guinea and surrounding islands, may carry inherited evidence of a previously unknown dead hominid species, Ryan Bohlender reported October 22 at the annual meeting of

Growing Aircraft in a Vat?

3D printing is the way of the future. We can now print anything from drugs to new shells for hurt tortoises, or even braces – at a fraction of the cost of regular production.

But what about 3D printing in chemical vats? A company called BAE systems

Making Water from Dry Air?

water essential resource

Play-doh was actually invented to become a wallpaper cleaner, but now we know it as a fun children’s toy. Just like Play-doh’s invention, scientists have just accidentally created small nanorods that are capable of harvesting water from the air. So, why are these carbon nanorods specia? After all, a lot of things can extract water

A New Transparent Metal

A new type of metal that’s both highly transparent and electrically conductive has been developed by researchers in the US, and at less than 5 percent the cost of current displays, it could see far cheaper smartphones in our pockets and enormous ‘smart windows’ in our homes.

The problem with current displays is that

Most Likely Places for Life in Our Galaxy

Our home galaxy isn’t as hospitable to life as you might think. Cosmic radiation, supernova explosions, and collisions with small galaxies make much of the Milky Way too hellish for biology. But a detailed new simulation locates quiet and fertile neighborhoods, including a surprising locale: wispy streams of stars flung far beyond the main

NASA Has Discovered How Mars Transitioned from “Earth-Like” to its Current State

NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) mission has identified the process that appears to have played a key role in the transition of the Martian climate from an early, warm and wet environment that might have supported surface life to the cold, arid planet Mars is today.

MAVEN data have enabled researchers to

It’s often assumed that economic gains will lead to a corresponding boost in happiness, but science suggests that the relationship between economics and happiness is actually much more complicated. Research has shown that getting promotion or a raise can give people an emotional boost for a short period of time, but even winning the lottery

World’s First “Photonic” Memory Chip

The world’s first entirely light-based memory chip to store data permanently has been developed by material scientists at Oxford University in collaboration with scientists at Karlsruhe, Munster and Exeter. The device, which makes use of materials used in CDs and DVDs, would dramatically improve the speed of modern computing.
