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…

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

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…

As years passed, scientists realized that many, if not most, species of dinosaurs were feathered. Feathered Dinosaurs Now, researchers from…

Experts Issue Solar Storm Alert as Charged Particles From the Sun Reach Earth

Space weather experts have predicted a solar storm after a stream of charged particles from the Sun got to Earth. Solar winds reaching our planet over the weekend have produced a weak geomagnetic storm in Earth’s magnetosphere, and the U.S. Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) says the storm could last until Wednesday, September 30th. The storm could also affect satellite systems. Solar Storm Alert On Monday, the SWPC alert bulletin said that weak power grid fluctuations could take place, along with ‘minor impacts on satellite operations.’ Geomagnetic or solar storms…
