How Exoplanets Rebooted NASA’s Search For Life Beyond Earth

NASA is putting together an unprecedented team of scientists and researchers to analyze recently found exoplanets for the potential to support life. The Nexus for Exoplanet System Science, or “NExSS”, hopes to better understand the various components of an exoplanet, as well as how the planet stars and neighbor planets interact to support life.

What Does Earthquake Magnitude Really Mean? Short Video Gives Great Visual Comparison

Today’s earthquake in Nepal is reportedly a 7.8 – 7.9 magnitude. What does that mean in actual terms? We’ve all heard earthquakes described by magnitude number, and yet most of us have a relatively vague or distorted perception of what these numbers mean in the real world. This video illustrates the variation of energy released in easy-to-understand terms.

Study Suggests Link Between Alzheimer’s and Immune System [2Min Video]

A Duke University study involving lab mice suggests there’s a link between Alzheimer’s disease and a faulty immune system. The study suggests that certain immune cells that normally protect the brain begin to abnormally consume an important amino acid: arginine.

Signs of Alien Life Will Be Found by 2025, NASA Chief Scientist Predicts

NASA chief scientist Ellen Stofan said on Tuesday that, within a decade, humanity will have found ‘strong indications’ of alien life. “I think we’re going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth within a decade, and I think we’re going to have definitive evidence within 20 to 30 years,” NASA chief scientist Ellen Stofan said Tuesday (April 7).

Tiny Songbird Discovered to Fly 1,700 Miles Non-Stop Over Open Ocean

For more than 50 years, scientists had clues suggesting that a tiny songbird known as the blackpoll warbler fly’s nonstop over the Atlantic Ocean, but proof was hard to come by. Now, an international team of biologists report “irrefutable evidence” that the birds complete a nonstop flight ranging from about 1,410 to 1,721 miles (2,270 to 2,770 km) in just two to three days.

Quantum Record! 3,000 Atoms Entangled in Bizarre State

Using a single particle of light, scientists have for the first time linked together thousands of atoms in a bizarre state known as quantum entanglement, where the behavior of the atoms would stay connected even if they were at opposite ends of the universe. This finding, the largest number of particles that have ever been mutually entangled in an experiment, could lead to more precise atomic clocks, potentially helping to improve GPS, researchers say.

Study Shows Humans Are Evolving Faster Than Previously Thought

Humans are evolving more rapidly than previously thought, according to the largest ever genetics study of a single population. Scientists reached the conclusion after showing that almost every man alive can trace his origins to one common male ancestor who lived about 250,000 years ago. The discovery that so-called “genetic Adam”, lived about 100,000 years more recently than previously understood suggests that humans must have been genetically diverging at a more rapid rate than thought.

Boeing Patents ‘Star Wars’-Style Force Field Technology  That Deflects Explosive Shock Waves

A new patent granted to aircraft, defense and security company Boeing is taking its cues from science fiction. Just like the glowing energy shields seen protecting troops, machines and even spacecraft in Star Wars and Star Trek, the design — named “Method and system for shockwave attenuation via electromagnetic arc” — uses energy to deflect potential damage.

Detection of Mini Black Holes At the LHC Could Indicate Parallel Universes In Extra Dimensions

The possibility that other universes exist beyond our own universe is tantalizing, but seems nearly impossible to test. Now a group of physicists has suggested that the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the largest particle collider in the world, may be able to uncover the existence of parallel universes, should they exist.

New Research Predicts Billions Of Habitable Planets in the Milky Way Galaxy

Researchers looking for habitable planets in the Milky Way galaxy are using a model that estimates more planets could support life than previously thought. Their findings indicate the Milky Way is home to billions of planets properly positioned from their parent stars for liquid surface water, and therefore potentially habitable.
