NASA’s Neutron Star mission begins science operations

NASA’s new Neutron star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER) mission has begun its science operations. The mission will study the “densest observable objects in the universe”, NASA said, releasing a video of NICER. In a statement Monday, NASA said that the mission will help scientists to “understand the nature of densest stable form of matter located […]

Gulf of Mexico tubeworm may be the longest living animal in the world

Gulf of Mexico tubeworm may be the longest living animal in the world

From Science Daily Large tubeworms living in the cold depths of the Gulf of Mexico may be among the longest living animals in the world. This is revealed in a study in Springer’s journal The Science of Nature. According to lead author Alanna Durkin of Temple University in the US, members of the tubeworm species Escarpia laminata live […]

Study blows ‘greenhouse theory out of the water’

Study blows ‘greenhouse theory out of the water’

BOZEMAN, Mont. – A new scientific paper contends the entire foundation of the man-made global-warming theory – the assumption that greenhouse gases warm the atmosphere by trapping heat – is wrong. If confirmed, the study’s findings would crush the entire “climate change” movement to restrict CO2 emissions, the authors assert Some experts contacted by WND […]

Quantum satellite gets closer to teleportation than ever before

Quantum satellite gets closer to teleportation than ever before

We might be closer than ever to using teleportation for our daily commutes, after scientists have used a satellite to teleport information between Earth and space. Chinese researchers achieved two separate feats, according to papers published in the database arXiv.org. The first involved transferring a particle’s properties between a ground-based observatory and a satellite in […]

72.8% of world’s renewable energy is made by burning wood & dung

72.8% of world’s renewable energy is made by burning wood & dung

From Technoocracy News The hysteria over solar and wind power as the only feasible source of future ‘renewable’ energy flies in the face of the facts. Wood and animal feces are both renewable, and account for almost 73% of the world’s renewable energy, but you never hear about planting more trees. Of course, the Technocrats […]

Surprise methanol detection points to evolving story of Saturn’s moon Enceladus’s plumes

Surprise methanol detection points to evolving story of Saturn’s moon Enceladus’s plumes

From Science Daily A serendipitous detection of the organic molecule methanol around an intriguing moon of Saturn suggests that material spewed from Enceladus undertakes a complex chemical journey once vented into space. This is the first time that a molecule from Enceladus has been detected with a ground-based telescope. Dr Emily Drabek-Maunder, of Cardiff University, […]

Ultra-thin camera creates images without lenses

Ultra-thin camera creates images without lenses

From Science Daily Traditional cameras — even those on the thinnest of cell phones — cannot be truly flat due to their optics: lenses that require a certain shape and size in order to function. At Caltech, engineers have developed a new camera design that replaces the lenses with an ultra-thin optical phased array (OPA). […]

Scientists a step closer to drug treatment for hepatitis B

Scientists a step closer to drug treatment for hepatitis B

From Science Daily A major new insight into how Hepatitis B Virus works could pave the way for new drug treatments for the infection which is the major cause of liver cancer worldwide. The team at the Universities of York and Leeds identified an “assembly code” in the genetic material of Hepatitis B Virus that […]
