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 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 […]

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 […]

Was Einstein Wrong or Was the Cable Loose?

(Reuters) – The world of science was upended last year when an experiment appeared to show one of Einstein’s fundamental theories was wrong – but now the lab behind it says the result could have been caused by a loose cable. Physicists at the CERN research institute near Geneva appeared to contradict Albert Einstein’s 1905 […]

What If Earth’s Magnetic Poles Flip?

(LiveScience.com|by Natalie Wolchover) The end of the world as we know it could come in any number of ways, depending on who you ask. Some people believe global cataclysm will occur when Earth’s magnetic poles reverse. When north goes south, they say, the continents will lurch in one direction or the other, triggering massive earthquakes, […]
