How Scientists Are Looking For Ripples In Spacetime

We are constantly searching for evidence of the Big Bang. One form of proof could be gravitational waves, but how do we go about finding them? Find out how in this video from DNews.

Plants Know When They Are Being Eaten (and Freak Out)

If you didn’t already recognize plants as sentient beings, maybe this study from the University of Missouri will change your mind: Researchers at the University of Missouri, in a collaboration that brings together audio and chemical analysis, have determined that plants respond to the sounds that caterpillars make when eating plants and that the plants respond with more defenses.

First Evidence That Parents’ Life Choices May Change Kid’s DNA

First Evidence That Parents’ Life Choices May Change Kid’s DNA

For the first time, scientists have discovered a mechanism in humans that could explain how your lifestyle choices may impact your children and grandchildren’s genes. Mounting evidence suggests that environmental factors such as smoking, diet and stress, can leave their mark on the genes of your children and grandchildren. For example, girls born to Dutch women who were pregnant during a long famine at the end of the second world war had twice the usual risk of developing schizophrenia. Likewise, male mice that experience early life stress give rise to two generations of offspring that have increased depression and anxiety, despite being raised in a caring environment. This has puzzled many geneticists, as genetic information contained in sperm and eggs is not supposed to be affected by the environment, a principle called the August Weismann barrier.

New Evidence Emerges on the Origins of Life

New Evidence Emerges on the Origins of Life

In the beginning, there were simple chemicals. And they produced amino acids that eventually became the proteins necessary to create single cells. And the single cells became plants and animals. Recent research is revealing how the primordial soup created the amino acid building blocks, and there is widespread scientific consensus on the evolution from the first cell into plants and animals. But it’s still a mystery how the building blocks were first assembled into the proteins that formed the machinery of all cells. Now, two long-time University of North Carolina scientists – Richard Wolfenden, PhD, and Charles Carter, PhD – have shed new light on the transition from building blocks into life some 4 billion years ago.

Should Flibanserin (the New “Female Viagra”) Be Approved by the FDA?

As women age, their sex drive can decrease significantly. Have doctors found a pill that can relight a woman’s sexual desire? On 3 and 4 June, the US Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) will convene an advisory panel to recommend whether Flibanserin – touted as the “female Viagra” – should be approved for use in patients. The question is divisive, however – with strong arguments for and against.

Discovery: Written Communication Around 37,000 Years Longer Than We Thought

It’s common knowledge that the first systematic use of written symbols as a means of communication emerged in Sumer around 3,000 BCE, but now a Canadian researcher is suggesting that as far back as 40,000 years ago our ancestors communicated in writing.

Vector Based Mathematics Proves Free Energy is Possible

Vector Based Mathematics Proves Free Energy is Possible

The Casimir Effect is a proven example of free energy. The Casimir Effect illustrates zero point or vacuum state energy, which predicts that two metal plates close together attract each other due to an imbalance in the quantum fluctuations. The implications of this are far reaching and have been written about extensively within theoretical physics by researchers all over the world. Today, we are beginning to see that these concepts are not just theoretical, but instead very practical and simply very suppressed.

Spherical Tokamak – a Smaller, Faster, Cheaper Route To Fusion Energy (“the Perfect Source of Energy”)

Fusion has the potential to be the perfect energy source—safe, clean, and limitless—but scientists are struggling to make it work. Now a change of shape may turn the mainstream reactor design, known as a spherical tokamak, into something simpler, faster, and cheaper.

Turtle Receives 3D Printed Jaw that Allows it to Eat on its Own Again

Also know as additive manufacturing, 3D printing promises to be a vastly more cost effective approach for the replacement of both body tissues and parts. While the synthetic materials which are often used in the final 3D printed products may cause biocompatibility problems, at the very least they can be used on a temporary basis.

How CERN’s Large Hadron Collider Could Be Linked to Recent Earthquakes

Simply put, the Large Hadron Collider creates the biggest magnetic field on the entire planet, second to that created by the planet itself! It may seem only speculation linking the LHC to seismic activity, but we must take into consideration how magnetism on this grand of a scale affects the layers of the Earth.

The Fermi Paradox — Where Are All The Aliens?

The Fermi paradox (or Fermi’s paradox) is the apparent contradiction between high estimates of the probability of the existence of extraterrestrial civilization and humanity’s lack of contact with, or evidence for, such civilizations.

Can This DNA Hack Help You Stay Young Forever?

A study tying the aging process to the deterioration of tightly packaged bundles of cellular DNA could lead to methods of preventing and treating age-related diseases such as cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease. The discovery, made possible through a combination of cutting-edge stem cell and gene-editing technologies, could lead to ways of countering age-related physiological declines by preventing or reversing damage to heterochromatin.

Quantum Entanglement Verified: Why Space Is Just The Construct That Gives The Illusion Of Separate Objects

An experiment devised by the Griffith University’s Center for Quantum Dynamics and led by Professor Howard Wiseman confirmed what Einstein did not believe to be real: the non-local collapse of a particle’s wave function.
