When it comes to accomplishments, there isn’t much that can compare to what Joey Lawrence has been able to achieve in his life. From becoming a qualified British pilot at a young age to being on the UK edition of Dancing With The Stars and now starring in his own US show, Joey Lawrence is […]
Astronomers at LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory), which is primarily intended to measure gravitational waves, have detected waves based on the collision of two distant neutron stars for the second time.
In September of 2017, LIGO scientists detected gravitational waves – a type of wave created by the collision of two objects. This discovery has since inspired many other researchers to begin working on detecting these waves elsewhere in the universe, and with each new detection the possibility that we may have discovered the elusive ‘dark […]
Last year, Alexander Berezin, a theoretical physicist at Russia’s National Research University of Electronic Technology (MIET), came up with an answer that says we are “first in, last out.”
Berezin’s idea is that, as civilizations evolve and grow, they tend to become more advanced technologically. At first, they are the ones leading the way, with the most sophisticated technology. But eventually, other civilizations catch up and overtake them. This phenomenon is called technological convergence. Berezin’s Theorem In a recent paper, Berezin proposed a new […]
It is said that the moon has been receiving materials produced by life on Earth since the time when plants began to grow on Earth.
If you’ve been wondering how life on Earth began, wonder no longer – thanks to the wonders of modern science, we now know that the moon has been receiving materials produced by life on Earth since the time when plants began to grow! This incredible discovery was made by a team of researchers from NASA’s […]
A meteorite named 2006 QV89, about 164 feet wide, has a one in 7,000 chance of hitting Earth on the morning of September 9 (Europe).
In case you haven’t heard, there’s a meteorite about 164 feet wide headed our way and it has a one in 7,000 chance of hitting Earth on September 9th. So what does this mean for you? Basically, if you’re anywhere near the vicinity of Earth on September 9th at 5:00am (local time), you might want […]
According to a new study led by the University of Bristol, feathers evolved about 100 million years before birds, and this study changes the way we look at dinosaurs and flying reptiles.
In March of this year, a study was published in the journal PLOS One that has been causing a lot of buzz in the scientific community. The study, led by the University of Bristol and involving a team of scientists from around the world, suggests that feathers evolved much earlier than previously thought – about […]
George Church, a scientist from Harvard, the advantage of genes to make a super human. We are listing the weaknesses.
What if we could simply modify our genes to create a super human? This is the dream of many scientists and would-be inventors, and one man who is leading the way in this field is Dr. George Church from Harvard University. In this article, we will take a look at some of the advantages and […]
International astronomers have discovered two planets orbiting a star only 12.5 light-years away from Earth.
Astronomers have discovered two planets orbiting a star only 12.5 light-years away from Earth. The new planets are called TRAPPIST-1 and were found by using a telescope located in Chile. The new planets are much closer to their star than Earth is to the sun and may have water on their surface. What is a […]
NASA’s famous Curiosity rover is constantly taking pictures on Mars, and in one of the pictures it took, it saw a mysterious light.
NASA’s Curiosity rover has been on Mars for over five years now and has been taking pictures and analyzing data. Recently, while Curiosity was investigating a dark area on the surface of Mars, it captured a mysterious light in one of its photos. Scientists have not been able to identify what the light is, but […]
NASA’s Spacewalk Mission Christina Koch and Jessica Meir, two female NASA astronauts, have recently set a unique milestone in the field of space science.
Christina Koch and Jessica Meir undertook a spacewalk on June 11th, 2019, becoming the first women to walk in space outside the International Space Station (ISS) and the second Americans to do so. Christina Koch is a veteran of five spaceflights and Jessica Meir has logged three. What is a Spacewalk? NASA’s Spacewalk Mission Christina […]
