Large Hadron Collider: What Happens in the World of Quantum Physics?

Large Hadron Collider: What Happens in the World of Quantum Physics?

The Large Hadron Collider, the largest machine ever created, spanning over 17 miles in circumference, at a depth of 500 feet below the surface of the Earth, is set to go online in a few weeks. Although the studies that were scheduled to be conducted should have already been underway, a short circuit in one […]

Dark Matter Is More Strange Than Previously Thought

Dark Matter Is More Strange Than Previously Thought

Dark matter has confused scientists for decades. Although it makes up a vast majority of the Universe, it cannot be seen. Dark matter does not emit, absorb, or reflect any light, thus making it nearly impossible to detect. Though, scientists now know it exists due to the measurement of its gravity warping space through the […]

Black Hole Winds Closing the Door on Stellar Creation

Black Hole Winds Closing the Door on Stellar Creation

When new stars are birthed into the vast void of the cosmos, the areas from whence they came are cold, dense clouds of light gases, such as hydrogen and helium. Though, these birthing clouds can be destroyed by a seemingly invisible predator lurking from within the shadows. When a black hole heats up to unimaginable […]

Mars Mission Given an Additional Six Months

Mars Mission Given an Additional Six Months

This past Tuesday, India’s space exploration program, the Mars Orbiter Mission, was given an additional six months to explore the planet more thoroughly, from the atmosphere to its surface. One of the senior officials on the project said there is no danger in extending the mission as their spacecraft has more than plenty of fuel, […]

Saturn Has a Most Precarious Spin

Saturn Has a Most Precarious Spin

When astronomers measure the rotation speed of planets, like the Earth, it is an elementary task. To do this, they see how long it takes for a certain point on the surface to come into view again. Though, the gas giants in the Solar System, like Jupiter and Saturn, are a little more difficult for planetary […]

Meteorite Crash Gave Russia Trillions of Carats of Diamonds

Meteorite Crash Gave Russia Trillions of Carats of Diamonds

A meteorite crash in the Siberian region of Russia which took place millions of years ago, is said to have brought trillions of carats of diamonds along with it. The scientists in Russia have claimed that Russia has a huge diamond field which has enough industrial diamonds to fulfill the entire global market demand for […]

Museums Asked to Consider Donors’ Politics

Museums Asked to Consider Donors’ Politics

Scientists have signed an open letter to natural history museums requesting they cut all ties with donors whose political agenda may conflict with their own view. The primary focus of this letter is the Koch brothers. David Koch holds seats on the boards of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of National History in D.C. and […]

Gulf Stream Is Slowing Down Due to the Melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet

Gulf Stream Is Slowing Down Due to the Melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet

According to scientists, the gradual but ever-increasing melting of the Greenland ice sheet, caused by the onslaught of greenhouse gases, is causing the Gulf Stream to circulate at a slower rate. Man-made global warming is seen to be a major arbiter of the thinning and disappearance of ice around the world. Scientists warn that further weakening […]

Jupiter May Have Been the Reason Why Life on Earth Exists Today

Jupiter May Have Been the Reason Why Life on Earth Exists Today

The Solar System may have been more crowded than it is today, riddled with super-Earths in the inner solar system, revolving around the Sun just beyond Mercury. According to scientists, this previous generation of multiple planets were destined to destruction by Jupiter, the large gas giant that separates the inner and outer solar system. In a […]

Cancer Found in 4,200-Year-Old Skeleton

A team of researchers have discovered a 4,200-year-old skeleton of an a middle-aged female that showed signs of breast cancer, the oldest known evidence of cancer to date. The skeleton of the woman was found in the necropolis of Qubbet el-Hawa in the town of Aswan. Mamdouh el-Damaty of the the Egyptian Antiquities Department stated the bones […]

Nova Vulpeculae 1670 Discovered to Be a Rarity in the Universe

Nova Vulpeculae 1670 Discovered to Be a Rarity in the Universe

Over 340 years ago, Renaissance astronomers discovered a bright star in the night sky, one that was not a nova, but a collision between two stellar bodies. The luminosity of the cosmic collision was more magnificent than a nova, but less extraordinary than a supernova. Now, new observations have been made using the Atacama Pathfinder […]

How California’s Constant Drought Will Affect the World

How California’s Constant Drought Will Affect the World

Scientists and geologists alike have clearly stated that the constant drought faced by California will affect the world. While a large part of the U.S. is enduring extended periods of drought, California is in a state of emergency. The state’s reservoirs are only capable of servicing its population for one more year before the supply […]
