Ancient Chinese tomb reveals previously unknown extinct species

Ancient Chinese tomb reveals previously unknown extinct species

April 11, 2018 Across the world of mammals, teeth come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Their particular size and shape are the process of millions of years of evolutionary fine-tuning to produce teeth that can effectively break down the foods in an animal’s diet. As a result, mammals that are closely related and […]

Einstein Was Right! Scientists Confirm General Relativity Works With Distant Galaxy

Einstein Was Right! Scientists Confirm General Relativity Works With Distant Galaxy

A new study validates Einstein’s theory of general relativity in a distant galaxy for the first time. This study supports our current understanding of gravity and provides more evidence for the existence of dark matter and dark energy — two mysterious concepts that scientists know about only indirectly by observing their effects on cosmic […]

Study reveals reason aliens may be snatching stars & caging them in megastructures

Study reveals reason aliens may be snatching stars & caging them in megastructures

Alien civilizations may be forced to capture stars and harness their energy using ginormous structures – all to keep themselves alive in the cold, ever-expanding vastness of universe, a Fermilab cosmologist believes. Expansion of the universe, thought to be further accelerated by dark energy, is flinging matter apart, while galaxies are being pushed away from […]

MIT Scientists Say They Just Discovered 80 New Exoplanets in Record Time

MIT Scientists Say They Just Discovered 80 New Exoplanets in Record Time

According to NASA, over 78 percent of confirmed exoplanets were discovered using the transit method, which involves analyzing how much the light from a host star dims as the object passes between it and the observer.   From the time that the data is released by NASA’s K2 mission, it typically takes several months to […]

Scientists Found Something Very Wrong With Jurassic Park's T. Rex Licking Scene

Scientists Found Something Very Wrong With Jurassic Park's T. Rex Licking Scene

Long before Chris Pratt was a velociraptor-whisperer in Jurassic World, Julianne Moore got licked by a Tyrannosaurus rex in The Lost World. It’s gnarly in the best way — and also extremely wrong, according to a study published Wednesday in PLOS One. According to researchers from the University of Texas at Austin and the Chinese […]

Scientists Detect Possible Missing 'Piece' Of Universe Created By The Big Bang

Scientists Detect Possible Missing 'Piece' Of Universe Created By The Big Bang

Aside from dark matter and the dark energy that comprised the universe, there remained to be 5 percent of what was called the “ordinary matter.” About two-thirds of this ordinary matter was left unaccounted for until now.  ( Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics ) After a 20-year-long experiment, a team of international scientists detects the last […]

The Last Chunk Of The Universe's 'Missing Matter' Has Finally Been Located, Claims New Study

The Last Chunk Of The Universe's 'Missing Matter' Has Finally Been Located, Claims New Study

Scientists have managed to find the remaining 30 percent of the universe’s missing baryons. A new paper published yesterday in the journal Nature announced that the remaining reservoir of missing baryons in our universe — the vast proportion of unaccounted-for protons, neutrons, and electrons that exist beyond the boundaries of galaxies — has finally been […]

India's places first robotic telescope in one of the world's third highest astronomical observatories

India's places first robotic telescope in one of the world's third highest astronomical observatories

As a part of the Global Relay of Observatories Watching Transients Happen (GROWTH) program, India now has its first robotic telescope. The telescope is capable of capturing dynamic and transient events overcoming the constraint of limited time periods. The partnerships encompassed in GROWTH allow the nations to observe the skies without any interruptions. Though most […]
