Astronomers Say Aliens May Already Know of Humans

Part of space exploration is the search for alien life to answer whether or not we are alone in the Universe. Although we have yet to find an alien civilization somewhere out there, some astronomers have argued that aliens may already be aware of our existence. The argument was made by scientists Lisa Kaltenegger from Cornell University and Joshua Pepper from Lehigh University. They suggested that because space agencies and astronomers have already found a way to notice exoplanets in the Universe, the same could be said for alien civilizations…

Researchers Argue The Odds We’re Living in a Simulation are 50/50

 ​There’s a strong chance that the world around us is a complex simulation created to fool our senses, researchers have suggested. Since the early days of mankind, humans have inquired about our place in the Universe: Are we alone? Is there a higher power controlling our fate? Are there more universes? Scientists are now reflecting on another pertinent question about our existence, whether or not we are living inside a simulation. The inquiry first appeared in the 2003 paper “Are We Living in a Computer Simulation?“ published by Swedish philosopher…

Researchers Create New Prototype of the Brain’s Real-Life Neural Networks

Scientists have created a new paradigm of how data deep in the brain could travel from one network to another ​and how these neuronal network bundles self-improve with time. The team – comprised of researchers from the Cyber-Physical Systems Group at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign – has titled the paper “Network Science Characteristics of Brain-Derived Neuronal Cultures Deciphered From Quantitative Phase Imaging Data,” which is believed to be the first research to examine this self-optimization event in vitro neuronal networks. Uncertainty…

New Research Shows Whole-Fruit Vitamin C Improves Vitality

Research carried out by the University of Otago has shown adults low in dietary vitamin C can enhance their feelings of vitality by consuming two kiwifruits a day for two weeks. The study emphasized the benefits of ingesting vitamin C through whole fruits such as the kiwifruit. Observing effects were more evident than in a matched population consuming vitamin C mainly through a supplement tablet. Whole Fruits and Vitamin C Scientists from Otago’s Department of Psychology and the Center for Free Radical Research in Christchurch performed a placebo-controlled intervention to…

Mysterious Halo Made of Gas Could Answer Questions About the Milky Way

​The Milky Way’s numerous mysteries are cracked up one by one, and the latest groundbreaking finding could help unveil the unknown features and causes behind certain events and activities of our home galaxy. Researchers have discovered a halo of plasma around the neighboring galaxy, Andromeda, using the Hubble Space Telescope. They have then mapped the massive halo of gas in the most detailed chart of its kind, showing how the halo – electrically charged gas – around this spiral galaxy extends around 1.3 million light-years towards the Milky Way.  A…

Archaeologists Unearth Almost 60 Sarcophagi Near Pyramid-Filled Region

Archaeologists have unearthed almost 60 ancient coffins that were buried close to the pyramids in a major discovery. The researchers were excavating a region south of Cairo when they came across dozens of sarcophagi, most of which had human remains inside. Egypt’s tourism and antiquities minister released a statement in which they revealed the 59 coffins were buried in three different wells about two and a half millennia ago. Almost 60 Sarcophagi Unearthed The Saggara plateau is a region where at least 11 pyramids are located, dating back to 2920…

Researchers Create New Technique to Find Alien Life on Exoplanets

​NASA has announced a new approach to the agency’s search for alien life on exoplanets, which involves trees’ shadows. The question of whether alien life exists somewhere out there has concerned scientists and philosophers for millennia, without any major progress so far. Still, with the finding of more than 4,200 exoplanets and counting, the rush is on to verify whether complex, non-technical alien life actually exists in these faraway worlds. With the latest developments of telescopes able to directly view these planets, Northern Arizona University scientists are trying to use…

Asteroid Alert – 2020 SX3 to Fly By Earth on Thursday

Space agencies are constantly monitoring asteroids that may be approaching Earth or flying around the Universe. NASA has captured one particular asteroid that measures 50 meters (164 feet) traveling through space, and believed to fly by our planet on Thursday, October 8th. The asteroid, called 2020 SX3, is currently moving towards Earth at a speed of 10.9 km (6.77 miles) per second. 2020 SX3 measures around 50 meters (164 feet) in diameter and is classified as a Near-Earth Object (NEO). 2020 SX3 is also labeled as an Apollo-type asteroid, a…

Woman Suffers Brain Fluid Leak After COVID-19 Nasal Swab Test

A COVID-19 nasal swab test perforated a U.S. woman’s brain lining, making fluid to leak from her brain and putting her at extreme danger of life-threatening infections, a new report says. The test carried on the patient, who is in her 40s, may have been performed improperly, the report argues, so the risk from nasal tests is not that high. However, Jarrett Walsh, senior author of the paper, says her case showed once again that healthcare professionals should make sure they follow the protocols closely. Also, people who have had…
