The THRIVE Movement has received over 500 breakthrough projects in the past three years, both technological and social innovations. This excerpt from the ThriveTogether event describes the potential for Open Source and 3D printing in getting new energy technologies out to the world.
A further step towards creating babies using DNA from three people has been taken by the UK government with the announcement of new regulations to be put before parliament. The move was hailed as a “milestone” by the head of one charity representing those affected by mitochondrial diseases, which thecontroversial fertility technique aims to prevent.
The remains of a child, laid to rest more than 1,500 years ago when the Roman Empire controlled Egypt, was found in an ancient cemetery that contains more than 1 million mummies, according to a team of archaeologists from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
The Rosetta Stone of the Body Studies are popping up all over – showing that the language of the body is sound. Invisible sound waves are the body’s secret communication system! Understanding the “Rosetta Stone of body language” will unlock untold breakthrough for health.
The Peacekeeper app is designed to change how people think and feel about emergency response by building tools, relationships and training that empower individuals to take action within their own communities,
The Geminid meteor shower is one of the most consistently impressive celestial light shows of the year. And this year’s display hits its peak this weekend. Here’s what you need to know to spot as many meteors as possible.

Dr. Michio Kaku takes us on a grand tour of what the future holds, giving us not only a solid sense of how the brain functions but also how these technologies will change our daily lives. He even presents a radically new way to think about “consciousness.” Kaku says that one day we might have a “smart pill” to enhance our cognition; upload our ain to a computer, neuron for neuron; send thoughts and emotions around the world on a “brain-net”; control computers and robots with our minds; push the limits of immortality, sending consciousness across the universe.
In a recent experiment, the quantum state (the direction it was spinning) of a light particle instantly traveled 15.5 miles (25 kilometers) across an optical fiber, becoming the farthest successful quantum teleportationfeat yet. Advances in quantum teleportation could lead to better Internet and communication security, and get scientists closer to developing quantum computers.
In 1911, nearly a decade after winning a Nobel Prize for her pioneering work on radiation, Marie Curie received a letter from Albert Einstein in which he urged her not to be beaten down by people who would, today, be called trolls.
