It's not easy to figure out what's inside the sun. "We can't go and take a sample," says Basu. There are two main ways to investigate. Helioseismologists such as Basu look at sound vibrations on the sun's surface, which give outward evide
the researchers have developed a fast-dissolving "bioactive" glass that they're putting in toothpaste called "BioMinC", a new toothpaste that repairs decayed teeth.
When they checked the biocompatibility and wear rate of the alloy, the researchers knew that it would rank high, since its parent metals are already biocompatible and used in medical implants. Surprisingly, Titanium-3 performed well over their expect
People get angry for all sorts of reasons, from the trivial ones (someone cut me off on the highway) to the really serious ones (people keep dying in Syria and nobody is doing anything about it). But, mostly, anger arises for trivial reasons. That'
But there has always been one missing piece of the puzzle when it comes to understanding mating strategies, especially among women. Why do women have so many affairs when these do not increase the number of offspring they can produce? From an ev
Iodine is essential to your health. Unfortunately, data collected by the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey has revealed a significant drop in median urine iodine values.1
"You could imagine you're in the middle of the Antarctic winter and essentially there's sea ice as far as you can see and then, suddenly, if you're walking along, you come across this huge expanse of open water," Kent Moore, an atmospheric physi
The second tier involves conceptually an electron - electron pairing that eliminates the massive charge of the free electron and makes it vitally undetectable using third tier tools. I expect that they can be broken apart to produce an electron and
The conundrum first arose from measurements of radiation left over from the Big Bang, which allowed scientists to calculate how much matter there is in the universe and what form it takes. This showed that about 5% of the mass in the universe comes i
Some scientists are already expressing doubt that this could lead to anything resembling a genuine recovery for braindead patients, as studies have shown that humans' capacity for regeneration is somewhat limited. However, even if the regeneration a
he source of this time travel conundrum comes from what are called "closed time-like curves"(CTC). CTCs are used to simulate extremely powerful gravitational fields, like the ones produced by a spinning black hole, and could, theoretically (based o
The Orionids are set to peak this weekend, lighting up night skies with a dazzling display of streaking meteors, which – happily for space enthusiasts – can be viewed from anywhere on Earth.
Astronomers say they have detected another set of gravitational waves ?" ripples in the fabric of space and time traveling throughout the Universe. It's the fourth time this phenomenon has been measured by the scientists at LIGO, or the Laser Int
Were his patients shocked? You bet they were. Who would ever suspect a Doctor of faking a diagnosis to collect money. It's unconscionable. Yet it happens with cancer and almost every disease that medical doctors can generate income through kickback
Americans throw away 35 billion plastic bottles every year and that's a problem because it takes plastic around 450 years to decompose, which is kind of a long time. Ari Jónsson is a product design student who studies at the Icelandic Academy of A
The promise of a powered wakeboard has captured the imagination of thrill seekers and water lovers alike, but there's no consensus on the best way to bring that vision to life. Some companies will tell you electric power is the solution, but Mako doe
The couple found that certain bacteria in the mother's digestive tract can lead to having an autistic child. Furthermore, they found the exact brain location linked to autistic behaviors, which can be used to find a cure for autism. Science jou
This evidence comes from a study that was carried out just a few years ago by biologists at City University London, US. In this study, it was shown that cats, dogs, and other mammals seem to see in UV light. UV light is the wave length beyond the vis
Corvids, a family of birds that includes crows, ravens, jays, magpies, and nutcrackers, are called scatter-hoarders. They roam large territories to scavenge seeds, fruit, and even meat, storing as many morsels as possible to eat later. That's the "
'I take my sleep incredibly seriously because I have seen the evidence,' says Professor Matthew Walker
I was going in a local grocery store. We live in a town that has a large reserve community, as far as reserve forces. And an aircraft wing that operates out of a local small airport. So I'm in that side of town and I look up. It's a cloudy day and
in household electronics...(Natural News) Researchers have devised a powerful and safe military-grade battery that can also be used in the home. The new technology opens the door for the development of safe, powerful, durable, and efficient 4-volt ba
They might look like props from a low-budget horror film, but these mysterious slimy brain-like blobs are in fact colonies of hundreds of tiny creatures. The pond-dwelling jellies were recently spotted for the first time in Stanley Park in Vancouv
The origins of this ingenious strategy trace back to a secret Pentagon-sponsored group, that for the last two decades has functioned as a bridge between the US government and elites across the business, industry, finance, corporate, and media sectors
The entire physical universe is made up of pure energy and vibration. When you have the insight to see everything as vibration, the nature of the universe is revealed to you. Light is vibration. The entire electromagnetic wave spectrum of visible lig
Up until recently, scientists faced a problem finding extremely old ice core samples. Heat from the Earth's core tends to melt the super deep layers of ice over time, and the oldest ice core scientists thought they were able to harvest was around
The Navajo elders and chiefs have taught their children over many generations that an eclipse is a very sacred event that must be treated with great respect and reverence. Toward that end, they direct all members of the Navajo nation to stay indoo
NASA says they've done the math, and they've recently introduced a new zodiac sign. They've thrown ages-old astrology charts totally out of whack with the announcement of Ophiuchus. What used to be utilized by die-hard astrology enthusiasts to
