Scientists Confirm that Plants Talk and Listen To Each Other

(Medical Daily) When a South African botanist Lyall Watson claimed in 1973 that plants had emotions that could be recorded on a lie detector test, he was dismissed by many in the scientific community. However, new research, published in the journal Trends in Plant Science, has revealed that plants not only respond to sound, but […]

Every Black Hole Contains a New Universe

Every Black Hole Contains a New Universe

The idea that our universe is entirely contained within a black hole provides answers to these problems and many more. It eliminates the notion of physically impossible singularities in our universe. And it draws upon two central theories in physics. The first is general relativity, the modern theory of gravity. The second is quantum mechanics, which describes the universe at the smallest scales, such as the level of the atom. However, quantum mechanics and general relativity are currently separate theories; physicists have been striving to combine the two successfully into a single theory of “quantum gravity” to adequately describe important phenomena, including the behavior of subatomic particles in black holes.

Was Russia’s Discovery of Water on Moon in 1976 Ignored?

(CNet) One day, when our children live on the Newt Gingrich Lunar subdivision, they will know just how watery the moon truly is. As far as we in the West have been concerned, the first proof that there might be water up there came in 1994, when the Clementine mission returned results suggesting that there […]

New Research Suggests Apes Have Human-like Personalities

(Phys.org) For as long as people have coexisted with other animals, they have debated amongst themselves whether some animals have some of the same personality traits as humans or if it’s just anthropomorphism at work. Many believe dogs, for example, have unique personalities, e.g. a cranky disposition, laziness, or even signs of neuroticism. More recently […]

New Planet Found in Our Solar System?

(National Geographic) An as yet undiscovered planet might be orbiting at the dark fringes of the solar system, according to new research. Too far out to be easily spotted by telescopes, the potential unseen planet appears to be making its presence felt by disturbing the orbits of so-called Kuiper belt objects, said Rodney Gomes, an […]

Researchers Use Light to Switch on Gene Expression

Imagine being able to control genetic expression by flipping a light switch. Researchers at North Carolina State University are using light-activated molecules to turn gene expression on and off. Their method enables greater precision when studying gene function, and could lead to targeted therapies for diseases like cancer. Triplex-forming oligonucleotides (TFOs) are commonly used molecules […]

Beam me up Scotty: Life-size Hologram-like Telepods Revolutionize Videoconferencing [video]

(Human Media Lab) Professor Roel Vertegaal’s Star Trek-like 3D cylindrical display is probably as close to teleportation as we will ever get. A Queen’s University researcher has created a Star Trek-like human-scale 3D videoconferencing pod that allows people in different locations to video conference as if they are standing in front of each other. “Why […]

2 Studies Point to Common Pesticide as a Culprit in Declining Bee Colonies

(New York Times) Scientists have been alarmed and puzzled by declines in bee populations in the United States and other parts of the world. They have suspected that pesticides are playing a part, but to date their experiments have yielded conflicting, ambiguous results. In Thursday’s issue of the journal Science, two teams of researchers published […]
