Our Cold War history is now offering scientists a chance to better understand the complex space system that surrounds us. Space weather—which can include changes in Earth’s magnetic environment—are usually triggered by the sun’s activity, but recently declassified data on high-altitude nuclear explosion tests have provided a new look at the mechansisms that set off […]
Yes, these are some of my most important discoveries. I’m a defeated man. I have not accomplished the greatest thing I could. Journalist: What is it, Mr. Tesla? Tesla: I wanted to illuminate the whole earth. There is enough electricity to become a second sun. Light would appear around the equator, as a ring around […]
From Sciencedaily.com Researchers at the University of Waterloo have been able to capture the first composite image of a dark matter bridge that connects galaxies together. The scientists publish their work in a new paper in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. The composite image, which combines a number of individual images, confirms predictions […]
Scientists say they have detected an atmosphere around an Earth-like planet for the first time. The world known as GJ 1132b, which is 1.4-times the size of our planet and lies 39 light years away. Observations suggest that the “super-Earth” is cloaked in a thick layer of gases that are either water or methane or […]
Debunked: Galactic superwave theory by Robert Walker Summary: This is hard to debunk because it’s by someone who is trained as a scientist. It is “minority view science” rather than just out and out BS. But his ideas are so far fetched, making tenuous connections , that most other scientists just ignore him. They don’t try to […]
Free Falling Objects A free falling object is an object that is falling under the sole influence of gravity. Any object that is being acted upon only by the force of gravity is said to be in a state of free fall. Free-falling objects do not encounter air resistance. If you’ve never seen a demonstration of this, […]
