How do you help a bird with a fractured wing? For avian veterinarians at the University of Shiraz in Iran, the answer may lie in repurposing the bones of deceased dogs and sheep to use as implants. This wouldn’t be your go-to solution if you found an injured bird on the sidewalk, but rather a […]
Nutrition fads are nothing new, and these days, the ketogenic diet (or keto, for short) is all the rage. In recent years, celebrities from Kourtney Kardashian to LeBron James have turned to the high-fat, low-carb approach for its reported health benefits — like weight loss and lower blood-sugar levels. And while the keto diet has […]
Raphael Mechoulam recently celebrated his 89th birthday, but the “father of cannabis research” isn’t done trying to uncover the secrets of marijuana. In 1964, Mechoulam discovered THC, the cannabinoid most famous for its intoxicating effect. The find in turn led to the discovery of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS likely plays a role in […]
SpaceX’s first Starship prototype blew its top, literally, during a pressure test of its fuel tanks in Boca Chica, Texas, on November 20. The top bulkhead exploded moments into the test, rocketing the stainless-steel cap high into the air. [embedded content] Starship Mk1 is the very first prototype for SpaceX’s next series of rockets, looking […]
The human brain contains ‘maps’ of the human body – a feature known as somatotopy. For instance, in the brain region responsible for processing touch sensations, the neurons which respond to touches to the feet are located near the neurons that receive input from the legs, and so on – the layout of the body […]
A new patchlike device that adheres to your arm, back or stomach might bring a sense of touch to virtual reality. Developed by researchers across the U.S. and China, the device combines wireless technology with small nodes that press down on the skin. Interacting with a touch-screen translates into real-time sensations — tracing your initials, […]
Using genetics, scientists have created a new calculator for seeing how old your dog really is.
When bees accidentally land in water, their wet wings keep them from lifting off and flying away. So instead, the insects reach the water’s edge by becoming tiny surfers. A close examination of how bees swim, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shows they use their wings to generate small ripples […]
UAP eXpeditions hopes to track UFO’s off California’s coast … All that’s known for certain, is that these UAP’s are real; they’ve been captured on FLIR cameras by US Navy fighter pilots. The government has admitted that these things exist and regularly interfere with their air-space. We know that there By Will Brendzatherooster.com11-13-19 […]
Mars has a very tenuous atmosphere, roughly 1 percent of Earth’s own, which is overwhelmingly made of carbon dioxide. Tiny fractions of other gases have been measured and studied over time, leading to several puzzling findings. The recently reported spike in methane is certainly among them and now we can add another one: an unusual increase in […]
Is Homo Sapiens being assisted by NHI’s to evolve through a series of complex programs into a new ‘upgraded’ species? What is the evidence? How is Contact with NHI’s linked to human labels: Star Children, Indigo, Crystal, ‘letter people’Are the labels indicating a genetic dysfunction or possibly an orchestrated phenomenon to upgrade humans?Why do some […]
Science nerds can be difficult to shop for. They’ve seen it all — and probably know it all, too. When the holidays roll around, another gift card or throw blanket just isn’t going to cut it. But rest easy, we’ve got you covered. We’ve taken the guesswork out of gift giving, presenting you with 10 […]
Astronomers question why the central supermassive black hole in the Phoenix Cluster doesn’t disrupt star formation like its peers do.
Bobbing up and down like a carousel horse might not sound like a stable way to orbit a planet, but it works for one little moon of Neptune. The planet’s innermost known satellite, Naiad, has a tilted orbit and it moves up-and-down relative to its neighboring moon, Thalassa. The strange arrangement keeps the two moons […]
The modern geography of Earth is created by the plate tectonic engine that runs in our planet. What we see as familiar maps today would have looked very different 50 million, 500 million, 3 billion years ago. That’s because the continents shift over time at rates of centimeters per year. This might not seem like […]
