Can Your Birth Month Affect Your Personality?

Can the season that you were born in affect your personality? New research shows that the season you are born has a significant impact on your risk of developing mood disorders. People born at certain times of year may have a greater chance of developing certain types of affective temperaments, which in turn can lead to mood disorders.

NASA Is Studying How to Mine the Moon for Water

Space agency scientists are developing two separate mission concepts to assess, and learn how to exploit, stores of water ice on the moon and other lunar resources. The projects — called Lunar Flashlight and the Resource Prospector Mission — are notionally targeted to blast off in 2017 and 2018, respectively, and aim to help humanity extend its footprint out into the solar system.

What’s the Matter with Antimatter? Newly Discovered “Particle” Said to Contain Both

By Sol Luckman for SCIENTIFIC MERKIN Ever since the so-called Enlightenment, pseudo-scientists worldwide have feverishly searched for smaller and smaller particles—seemingly oblivious to the fact that particles don’t really exist … except to the extent they’re just momentarily suspended waves in an ever-changing, vibrational, holographic sea, duh. Now the high priests of pseudo-science, otherwise known […]

Can Your Favorite Song Make You Smarter?

When we hear our favorite music, our thoughts tend to shift inward, activating the default mode network (DMN) a network of brain regions that’s active when a person is awake but at rest. Our favorite songs also seem to spark a conection between our auditory circuts and the hippocampus, a region responsible for memory and emotions.

‘Cloaking’ Device Uses Ordinary Lenses To Hide Objects Across Range Of Angles

Inspired perhaps by Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak, scientists have recently developed several ways—some simple and some involving new technologies—to hide objects from view. The latest effort, developed at the University of Rochester, not only overcomes some of the limitations of previous devices, but it uses inexpensive, readily available materials in a novel configuration.

Black Holes DON’T Exist According to Scientist Who Claims Mathematical Proof

An American physicist claims she has mathematically refuted the existence of black holes in our universe. The new theory combines Steve Hawking’s radiation theory with quantum theory’s fundamental law that no information ever disappears from the universe. Professor Laura Mersini-Houghton from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill maintains she managed to merge two seemingly contradicting theories, Einstein’s theory of gravity and a fundamental law of quantum theory.

On/Off Switch For Aging Cells Discovered By Scientists

On/Off Switch For Aging Cells Discovered By Scientists

An on-and-off “switch” has been discovered in cells that may hold the key to healthy aging. This switch points to a way to encourage healthy cells to keep dividing and generating, for example, new lung or liver tissue, even in old age. In our bodies, newly divided cells constantly. However, most human cells cannot divide indefinitely -– with each division, a cellular timekeeper at the ends of chromosomes shortens. When this timekeeper becomes too short, cells can no longer divide, causing organs and tissues to degenerate, as often happens in old age. But there is a way around this countdown, researchers have found.
