Space-Time Crystal Computer That Can Outlive Even The Universe Itself!
It may seem strange to think something can survive even the death of the Universe, but that could actually be possible as a result of the laws of quantum physics.
Scientists are now suggesting a new blueprint for a device, known as a time crystal, that can theoretically continue to function as a
Most Alien World We Can Only Imagine
This is not an alien world, anyone of us will ever be able to visit.
It's not very far away, only about 40 light years from Earth, but it circles dangerously close to a stellar inferno, completing
one orbit in only 18 hours. The alien planet named "55 Cancri e" is 26 times closer to its parent star than Mercury is to the Sun.
The temperature on the surface of 55 Cancri e is estimated to be as high as 2,700 degrees Celsius.
Extinguish Fires With Sound!
Incredible New Invention From DARPA
DARPA has done it again! In the past DARPA invented the internet, designed super fast cheetah robots and next-generation flight systems,
and now they have developed a new system that is able to put out fires using sound waves!
Next Magnetic Pole Reversal Is Underway - Scientists Say
A new study indicates that there is a possible connection between the Earth's inner core and a magnetic reversal.
The magnetic field reverses direction every few thousand years. If it happened now, we would be exposed to solar winds capable of knocking
out global communications and power grids...
Who Or What Created This Large Hole On Mars?
Latest Photo Baffles Scientists
Is this yet another entrance to a secret underground world on Mars? We have previously seen that a
football field-sized, dark and very deep hole
was discovered on Mars some years ago..
Now, a new stunning photo taken by Oribiter's HIRISE instrument shows a hole about 35 metres across.
Watching Volcanoes On Alien Worlds
Volcanoes display the awesome power of nature like few other events.
Now that astronomers are finding rocky worlds
orbiting distant stars, they're asking the next logical questions: Do any of those worlds have volcanoes? And if so, could we detect them?
Aliens Living On Methane Worlds
In the search for life elsewhere, many studies focus on finding liquid water. But what if life could exist with some other
solvent? Saturn's smoggy moon Titan makes scientists question the possibilities for methane-based life in the galaxy.
The search for life is largely limited to the search for water – we look for exoplanets at the correct distance from their
stars for liquid water to splash and flow freely on their surfaces...
Record-Breaking Radio Waves From Ultra-Cool Brown Dwarf
Flaring radio emissions from an ultra-cool star, not much warmer than the planet Jupiter, have been discovered by Penn State astronomers
using the world's largest radio telescope, at Arecibo, Puerto Rico.
This is by far the coolest brown dwarf yet detected at radio frequencies...
Light From Distant Alien World Seen For The First Time
It's the most alien world we can only imagine and for the first time a space-based infrared telescope - Spitzer Space Telescope -
has detected light emanating from a "super-Earth" located in this system and orbiting a bright star, known as 55 Cancri, in a mere 18 hours.
Earth-Like Exoplanet In The Habitable Zone Could Harbor Life
- Has Earth Twin Been Discovered?
It is every astronomers' dream to find an Earth-like with liquid water and perfect conditions for life, as we know it.
This is why the recent discovery is so exciting.
An international group of astronomers have detected a new exoplanet that appears to be very similar to Earth. Could life exist there?
First Photo Ever Of The Entire North Pole As Seen From Space!
You have never seen the entire North Pole, not until now...
This is a unique photo showing for the first time the entire Artic region.
We have previously only been able to view parts of the North Pole, but in this very special version of
the Blue Marble image much more can be seen... Can you see your country on the image?
Can Parallel Universes Explain The Déjà Vu Phenomenon?
Have you ever had a déjà vu experience? It's the feeling, or impression that you have already witnessed or experienced a current situation.
The term déjà vu is French and means, literally, "already seen."
It is a rather common, yet little understood phenomenon...
Stunning Satellite Photos Show America As Never Seen Before!

You can clearly see how the nation's transport and communication infrastructures work to power the vast nation on a daily basis.
Beautiful Star Trails Over Australian Night Sky!
These extraordinary images are an example of beautiful star trail photography!
The sky is as just gorgeous as the landscape. The colors of the star trails are almost out of this world!
Can it really get much better that this?
Solar Activity Causes Changes In Humans And Affects Our Health:
As our Sun goes through its 11-year cycle that is due to peak in 2013 or 2014, scientists worry about dangerous solar flares
that could practically wipe out a lot of our electronic civilization.
There has also bee concern in what way our Suns' abnormal behavior can effect human health.
Some scientists say there is actually a correlation between the rise and fall of solar activity and the human consciousness...
