Have you ever seen a plant seed look like it's thinking? Researchers have found two small groups of cells inside plant embryos that operate in a similar way to the human brain, and help decide when the plant should start sprouting. We're not talking about actual grey matter here, but...
According to Einstein’s general relativity theory, spacetime bends or gets distorted when it crosses a massive object due to its gravity. In the same manner, Einstein theorized that such a distortion also happens to light from a distant star when it passes another star along a line of sight from...
A New Device Uses Sunlight to Create Drinking Water From Air
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 663 million people — one in ten — lack access to safe water. Fully one-third of the world’s population lacks plumbing enough to have access to a toilet—that’s more than 2.4 billion people. A 2016 report found that water shortages affect two-thirds of...
NASA scientists have proposed a bold plan that could give Mars its atmosphere back and make the Red Planet habitable for future generations of human colonists. By launching a giant magnetic shield into space to protect Mars from solar winds, the space agency says we could restore the Red Planet's...
CRISPR Gene-Editing Can Cause Hundreds of Unexpected Mutations
It's been hailed as one of the most potentially transformative inventions in modern medicine, bringing the prospect of designer babies closer than any other technology to date, but CRISPR-Cas9 could be riskier than we thought. The technology that could spark a gene-editing revolution has been caught introducing hundreds of unintended...
Dinosaur fossils come in many forms, but most of them are incomplete skeletons. With some exceptions, large sections of these long-lost beasties have disintegrated or are otherwise lost to time – it takes a certain level of geological serendipity to find anything more. It does happen, though. A few months...
These psychological facts will definitely blow your mind! Psychologists and neuroscientists are constantly finding out fascinating new psychological facts about the brain—and some of them have significant implications for your manifestation potential. Here’s the science behind 7 mind-blowing psychological facts, along with explanations of how you can use these facts to your...
The finding could provide an important breakthrough in understanding how planets form, and how atmospheres can vary between exoplanets with different masses. While the number of known exoplanets continues to soar, uncovering specific details about these distant worlds has been more challenging. The delicate task of finding out the specifics...
Archaeological excavations on the Dra Abu el-Naga hill in Luxor, Egypt, have been ongoing for the past 16 years and are sponsored this year by Indra and Técnicas Reunidas. José Manuel Galán, research professor from the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and leader of the Djehuty Project, has discovered...
Experiments conducted at CERN are not only the greatest projects of physics, but probably the most important ones in the history of science. So, it’s not surprising to see how popular it is for the general public as well as scientists all around the world. This popularity, however, comes...
