Back in 1972, former NASA engineer and prolific writer, Martin Caidin's novel "Cyborg" was published. The story became the basis of the popular TV series "The Six Million Dollar Man" that followed the adventures of bionically enhanced former ast
I estimate that the cost of energy made with this system will be below 1 cent/kWh, in case of electric power made by means of a Carnot cycle, and below 1 cent/4,000 M J in case of thermal power production for heating purposes.
Space scientists and engineers are looking at the possibility of designing an elevator to travel into space. It is also time that Indian research institutions looked at developing carbon nanotube composite fibre, nano epoxy and laser power beaming,"
A BRITISH man whose heart stopped for three-and-a-half hours was brought back to life by a machine that performed 20,000 life-saving chest compressions. Engineer Arun Bhasin, 53, was found lying unconscious in Croydon, south London, in December in
For years many researchers have raised concerns and expressed doubts about some prescription drug's links to outbreaks of violence. While the association of many street drugs to violence, or violent tendencies, is established, not much research has
Worried about getting the flu? Just get H1N1 swine flu and you'll probably never have to worry about getting sick from any influenza again. That's the conclusion that amazed medical researchers were forced to draw from the research they just comple
“Until now, there wasn’t really an obvious connection between all these different phenomena,” said Dr. Philipp Scherer, professor of internal medicine and cell biology and senior author of the study appearing online today and in a future edition of N
For military purposes, it will be up to the Department of Defense “to determine which phenotypes… have special relevance to military performance and medical cost containment” and then presumably to select...
Researchers have searched for centuries for an effective way to end the maddening, continuous ringing in the ears that some people suffer. Most of the so-called cures to treat the condition known as tinnitus were quack treatments, bizarre devices, or
he prototype, which was devised by researchers in the US and Switzerland, uses a quartz window and cavity to concentrate sunlight into a cylinder lined with cerium oxide, also known as ceria. C
New research published in Brain Research Bulletin by Dr. Antonio Convit a medical researcher at the New York University School of Medicine focused on obesity and why type 2 diabetes is so often linked to impairment of cognitive brain functioning. Tak
Health experts are rushing to stay ahead of a rapidly mutating H1N1 virus. Recently, reports have been issued that a swine flu breakthrough has occurred in the UK, Sweden and several other northern European countries. Of paramount concern is the poss
What is a Correlation? What are N-Dimensional Queries? Is this just a different type of Search with new algorithms? N-Dimensional Search supports those queries which are more complex and less obvious - queries that are closer to "real life human
Ten years ago futurists predicted that one day data would be stored in living organisms like bacteria. They picked 2020 as the date the feat would be accomplished. They were only off by ten years. During late 2010, a team of biochemistry students at
That she has been violently attacked by an individual who is obviously mentally deranged is shocking and extremely disturbing. Almost as disturbing is how the mainstream media has latched onto this story as a way to demonize anyone who belie
Glass stronger and tougher than steel? A new type of damage-tolerant metallic glass, demonstrating a strength and toughness beyond that of any known material, has been developed and tested by a collaboration of researchers with the U.S. Energy Dept.
In the process of photosynthesis, plants take the sun's energy and convert it to electrical energy. A member of the animal kingdom, the Oriental hornet, takes the sun's energy and converts it into electric power in the brown and yellow parts of its b
When Karpen built the battery he claimed it would function forever. Although decades ago engineers and physicists that studied it believed it would stop working soon it never has stopped. Those engineers and physicists are now long dead, but the
A now-retracted British study that linked autism to childhood vaccines was an "elaborate fraud" that has done long-lasting damage to public health, a leading medical publication reported Wednesday.
In the closing days of the last month of the year, Princeton scientists achieved yet another scientific marvel when they successfully created the world's first synthetic proteins that sustain life. Michael Hecht, a professor of chemistry at Princeto
Lake Vostok, which has been sealed off from the world for 14 million years, is about to be penetrated by a Russian drill bit. The lake, which lies four kilometres below the icy surface of Antarctica, is unique in that it's been completely isolated fr
Several decades ago medical researchers noticed a shocking new trend: male fertility was declining. If the decline continued the human race would become extinct. Since that time the rate of decline has accelerated. When first detected, worried res
premature hair loss, reverse color loss in graying hair and regulate many of the ills that appear with excess aging. Fo-Ti helps prevent thinning hair and restore dry, brittle and damaged hair. It shows efficacy for use in genetic pattern balding as
The world of physics can be strange, very strange indeed. And every once in awhile something happens during an experiment that throws a wrench into the neatly constructed model of how everything works and causes all assumptions to be reassessed. Such
Milgram once wrote that we are "puppets controlled by the strings of society". Yet what is also true is that not all puppets jump when their strings are pulled.
In fact, the people who are most susceptible to catching the flu are precisely the very same people who get vaccinated. Why is that? Because vaccines weaken the immune system in the long run, leaving you more vulnerable to future infections. They den
The mass bird and fish die-offs that have affected parts of the U.S. over the last week have now gone global, with Sweden, Brazil and New Zealand becoming the latest countries to experience a phenomena
