Hydrogen Production Breakthrough Could Herald Cheap Green Energy

Chemists from the University of Glasgow report in a new paper in Science today on a new form of hydrogen production which is 30 times faster than the current state-of-the-art method. The process also solves common problems associated with generating electricity from renewable sources such as solar, wind or wave energy.

Aquapol Dehydration System Proves “Free Energy” is Real

A new dehydration system uses Earth’s energy field to solve rising damp problems, because it addresses the root cause by neutralizing the capillary forces. Besides drying walls of buildings, this system can also be used to dry out underground walls, basements, and cellars.

Buddhist Singing Bowls Inspire New Tandem Solar Cell Design

Dr Niraj Lal, of the Australian National University, found during his PhD at the University of Cambridge, that small nano-sized versions of Buddhist singing bowls resonate with light in the same way as they do with sound, and he’s applied this shape to solar cells to increase their ability to capture more light and convert it into electricity.

The First Successful Demonstration Of Brain-To-Brain Communication In Humans

For the first time ever, neuroscientists have demonstrated the viability of direct — and completely non-invasive — brain-to-brain communication in humans. Remarkably, the experiment allowed subjects to exchange mentally-conjured words despite being 5,000 miles apart.

How Caffeine Evolved to Help Plants Survive and Help People Wake Up

When coffee leaves die and fall to the ground, they contaminate the soil with caffeine, which makes it difficult for other plants to germinate. Coffee may thus use caffeine to kill off the competition.

Quantum Mechanics Reveals How We Are All Truly Connected

We all know, deep down, that we are all connected. But is this notion of being connected only a magical feeling or is it concrete fact? Quantum mechanics or the study of the micro-world states illustrates that what we think of reality, is not so. Our human brains trick us into believing in the idea of separation when in truth, nothing is truly separated —including human beings.

Scientists Find Remnants of One of Universe’s Oldest Stars—And It’s Huge

After digging around in the light from an old, orange star, astronomers have found possible remnants of one of the universe’s first stars: a giant that may have been more than 140 times as massive as the sun.
The finding, reported Thursday in the journal Science, marks the first time astronomers have made observations suggesting that such massive stars populated the early universe, despite decades of theories proposing that some of those first stars must have been huge.
