New class of chemical reaction discovered

New class of chemical reaction discovered

From Science Daily A new study led by Michael P. Burke, assistant professor of mechanical engineering at Columbia Engineering, has identified the significance of a new class of chemical reactions involving three molecules that each participate in the breaking and forming of chemical bonds. The reaction of three different molecules is enabled by an “ephemeral […]

Karakoram glaciers growing in spite of global warming

Karakoram glaciers growing in spite of global warming

From Technocracy News Scientists are forced to face the fact that weather is more complicated than just heating up because of increased CO2 in the atmosphere. Things like wind and ocean patterns and solar conditions. Man’s influence is minuscule by comparison. ⁃ TN Editor A summer ‘vortex’ of cold air over the Karakoram, a large mountain range […]

Astronauts to bring asteroid back into lunar orbit

Astronauts to bring asteroid back into lunar orbit

From Science Daily Future space exploration aims to fly further from Earth than ever before. Now, Italian Space Agency scientists have expressed an interest in contributing to the development of robotic technologies to bring an asteroid from beyond lunar orbit back into closer reach in order to better study it. In a paper published in EPJ […]

Tissue Nanotransfection, a technique that heals with a single touch

Tissue Nanotransfection, a technique that heals with a single touch

Does the idea of a device healing serious wounds or an entire organ in a human body with a single touch seem too far-fetched? Researchers at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center have inched closer to making the possibility a reality. In what is being viewed as a breakthrough in regenerative medicine, the researchers […]

The truth about nitrites, junk-science & the media

The truth about nitrites, junk-science & the media

As of this month, Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian International relief agency, estimated that as many as 5.5 million people in South Sudan alone will be on the brink of famine, while, according to the United Nations, 20 million internationally face the same fate. In contrast, in the U.S., over half the population is either obese […]

Coral gardening is benefiting Caribbean reefs, study finds

Coral gardening is benefiting Caribbean reefs, study finds

From Science Daily A new study found that Caribbean staghorn corals (Acropora cervicornis) are benefiting from “coral gardening,” the process of restoring coral populations by planting laboratory-raised coral fragments on reefs. The research, led by scientists at the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science and partners, has important implications for […]

NASA’s Neutron Star mission begins science operations

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 […]
