Cosmic ‘Web’ Seen For First Time

The hidden tendrils of dark matter that underlie the visible Universe may have been traced out for the first time. Cosmology theory predicts that galaxies are embedded in a cosmic web of “stuff”, most of which is dark matter. Astronomers obtained the first direct images of a part of this network, by exploiting the fact that a luminous object called a quasar can act as a natural “cosmic flashlight”. The quasar illuminates a nearby gas cloud measuring two million light-years across.

Archaeologists Uncover More Evidence Middle Earth Might Have Been Real

Until recently, archaeologists believed that there were only two species of humans in existence over 400,000 years ago. But, new findings, as well as the recent discovery of the “hobbit” bones in Indonesia, make it clear that it’s far more likely the world of ancient Earth was nowhere near as simple as scientists thought.

The Psychology of Being a “Non-Conspiracy Theorist”

It’s the so called non-conspiracy theorists. Let’s meet face to face with your typical non-conspiracy theorist. We all know them, they often are the ones who hold the “conspiracy” verbal accusation as a valid logically defined argument in and of itself. You know, the guy who tries to terminate conversations by alleging that you are nothing more than a “conspiracy theorist” and therefore the information you share is false or not believable. Yes, that guy. this:

What You Think Is Right May Actually Be Wrong – Here’s Why

We like to think that we reach conclusions by reviewing facts, weighing evidence and analyzing arguments. But this is not how humans usually operate, particularly when decisions are important or need to be made quickly. What we usually do is arrive at a conclusion independently of conscious reasoning and then, and only if required, search for reasons as to why we might be right.

New Evidence That Plants Get Their Energy Using Quantum Entanglement

New Evidence That Plants Get Their Energy Using Quantum Entanglement

Biophysicists theorize that plants tap into the eerie world of quantum entanglement during photosynthesis. But the evidence to date has been purely circumstantial. Now, scientists have discovered a feature of plants that cannot be explained by classical physics alone — but which quantum mechanics answers quite nicely. The fact that biological systems can exploit quantum effects is quite astounding. In a way, they’re like mini-quantum computers capable of scanning all possible options in order to choose the most efficient paths or solutions. For plants, this means the ability to make the most of the energy they receive and then deliver that energy from leaves with near perfect efficiency.

Where Your Body ‘Feels’ Emotions Revealed In New Study

Scientists have long known that common emotions can trigger sensations in our bodies — whether it’s butterflies in the stomach (anxiety) or hot cheeks (shame). And now a new study suggests that we all have the same bodily sensations associated with our feelings regardless of culture or language — because the mind-body connection is biological, and is linked to our very drive for survival.

Whoa: Watch Scientists Use Sound Waves to Make Things Levitate

Posted by on January 2, 2014 in Sci-Tech, Science, Technology with 0 Comments

A group of researchers at the University of Tokyo use sound waves to levitate various objects. Tiny little beads lift into the air and glide around in perfect formation. An iron screw spins gently in space. Pieces of plastic, broken match heads, and even droplets of water all defy gravity, all thanks to the precise application of ultrasonic sound waves.
