30 Years Ago, A Diver Discovered Something That Changed The Course Of Human History

Though it’s only about the size as New Jersey, Israel is rich with history and religious significance. It’s so historically significant, in fact, that several of its wonders are still being discovered. In 1984, a marine archaeologist was diving in the Levantine Sea off of the coast of Israel when he found something shocking. What he uncovered […]

Robots Rule This Futuristic Barley Field

Is there anything more quintessentially American than a farmer in the heartland, toiling away on their land? But this vision of agrarian life will fade into the dusty shelves of sentimental nostalgia, because agriculture is poised to become an industry ruled by robot laborers. Companies like Hands Free Hectare (HFHa) are leading the way. After […]

Dinosaur Brain Unearthed For The First Time Ever

A little, brown rock from the beaches of England has now turned out to be a find for the ages. We’ve completely reconstructed their skeletons and, at least in the movies, brought them back from extinction, but we’ve never unearthed a single dinosaur brain — until now. University of Cambridge researchers have now concluded that a rusty-brown […]

Dinosaur ‘Mummy’ Unveiled With Skin And Guts Intact

This isn’t merely a fossil, but an actual dinosaur itself, frozen in time. You can’t even see its bones, yet scientists are hailing it as perhaps the best-preserved dinosaur specimen ever unearthed. That’s because, 110 million years later, those bones remain covered by the creature’s intact skin and armor. Indeed, the Royal Tyrrell Museum of […]

Finding E.T. Here On Earth

When aliens arrive in the movies, they typically come from distant galaxies. Extraterrestrial life, however, could exist right here in our own solar system, nestled in briny oceans under the surface of icy worlds close to home. Multiple moons orbiting Jupiter and Saturn have proven to hold, or once held, liquid oceans. Of these, Saturn’s moon […]

Nobel Prize for Physics awarded to team who found gravitational waves – ripples in the fabric of spacetime

The team who discovered gravitational waves – ripples in space and time – have been awarded the Nobel Prize of Physics. The waves were predicted by Einstein in his General Theory of relativity, but were not recorded for more than 100 years. They were finally spotted in 2016 by the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (Ligo) in a discovery was […]

Is It Time To “Redefine Statistical Significance”?

A new paper in Nature Human Behaviour has generated lots of debate. In Redefine Statistical Significance, authors Daniel J. Benjamin and colleagues suggest changing the convention that p-values below 0.05 are called ‘significant’. Instead, they suggest, the cut-off should be set at 0.005 – a stricter criterion. Over at The Brains Blog, John Schwenkler organized […]

People with wider faces have a higher sex drive.

Here’s another addition to the list of things that you can guess from a quick look at someone’s face, which includes whether a gay man is a “top” or “bottom” and whether a criminal will get the death penalty. Here, researchers found that people with a higher facial width-to-height ratio (i.e., a face that is wider than […]

UFO Report: The COMETA Report

Source: Internet Archive (archive.org) The 1999 French COMETA report was entitled “Les OVNI et la défense: A quoi doit-on se préparer?” (“UFOs and Defence: What must we be prepared for?”). The UFO study was carried out over several years by an independent group of mostly former members of the Institute of Advanced Studies for National Defence […]
