After more than 130 years, researchers ‘Rediscovered’ the 8th wonder of the world

After remaining buried more than 130 years, exeprts beleive they just might have rediscovered the eight wonder of the world, thought to have been lost forever. Fully Awesome! Image Credit: J. C. HoyteThe story goes like this… Once upon a time—or in the year 1886—a powerful, cataclysmic volcanic eruption took place at Lake Rotomahana on New Zealand’s North Island. This volcanic eruption set in motion a chain reaction of countless explosions and lava flows. By the end of the eruption, experts estimate that it released as much energy as the largest nuclear weapon ever detonated—the Tsar Bomba. But not only that, this catastrophic—natural event also wiped from the face of the Earth a heavenly natural formation referred to as the Pink And White terraces, aka the Eighth Wonder of the World. The terraces were considered as a global attraction in the mid-19th century and tourists from all over the world traveled to New Zealand to take a peek at this beautiful natural formation. In fact, the terraces were so sought for, that researchers note that shiploads of tourists made the voyage from the UK, Europe, and America to see the terraces and bathe in the springs.… Seguir leyendo...

As above so below: Scientists have found a multidimensional universe inside our brain

A sensational discovery has been made by experts as scientists have found that the human brain is home to structures and shapes that have up to 11 dimensions. Neuroscientists welcome the discovery saying: “We found a world that we had never imagined.”Neurons firing in the brain. Image Credit.Mathematical methods of algebraic topology have helped researchers find structures and multidimensional geometric spaces in brain networks. According to experts, a new study has proven that the human brain is home to structures and shapes that have up to 11 dimensions. Human brains are estimated to be home to a staggering 86 billion neurons, with several connections from each cell webbing in every possible direction, forming a super-vast cellular network that SOMEHOW makes us capable of thought and consciousness, reports Science Alert. An international group of scientists gathered around the Blue Brain project has obtained results never before seen in the world of neuroscience, according to the study published in the journal Frontiers in Computational Neuroscience. This team managed to find structures in the brain that present a multidimensional universe, uncovering the first geometric design of neural connections and how they respond to stimuli. Scientists made use of in-depth computer modeling techniques to understand how exactly human brain cells are able to organize themselves in order to carry out complex tasks.… Seguir leyendo...

Long-lost city of ‘Giants’ unearthed in Ethiopia

A team of archaeologists has made a sensational discovery in Ethiopia. Archaeologists have unearthed the remains of a long-lost city in Ethiopia, which according to local legends was once inhabited by giants.The site of Harlaa is located 120km from the Red Sea coast in Eastern Ethiopia. Image Credit: Tim InsollA team of British archaeologists led by Timothy Insoll, a professor at the University of Éxeter (UK) has discovered in eastern Ethiopia an ancient “city of giants” located in Haarla, 120 km from the Red Sea and 300 km from the capital Of the country Addis Ababa. During the excavations, a 12th-century mosque was found whose construction style is similar to those of Tanzania and Somalia. Its architecture shows the existence of strong contacts between the different Islamic communities of Africa. Archaeologists also found numerous objects and jewelry with origins as diverse as Egypt, India, Madagascar, Yemen, Maldives or China. These discoveries suggest that Ethiopia was more connected to the world than had previously thought. It is believed that the city was an important center of commerce in the region during the period between the X and XV centuries and had commercial links with the Persian Gulf, Egypt, and India.… Seguir leyendo...

The ESA approves revolutionary mission to search for other dimensions and parallel universes

Scientists have finally set out to search for parallel universes and other dimensions. The revolutionary mission will not only study gravitational waves and their potential influence in parallel universes and other dimensions but will offer scientists unprecedented scientific data that will help develop future missions. “Extra dimensions have been discussed for a long time from different points of view,” said Emilian Dudas at the École Polytechnique in France in an interview with New Scientist. “Gravitational waves could be a new twist on looking for extra dimensions.”SXSThe existence of other dimensions has always nurtured the imagination of scientists and lovers of science fiction. Now, the European Space Agency (ESA) has approved a mission that will initiate the hunt for gravitational waves in space, and with it the opportunity to finally prove the existence of extra dimensions, and/or parallel universes. Gravitational waves—those small undulations in the space-time tissue of the Universe, believed to be caused by the movement of very massive cosmic objects were first discovered in 2015. And since gravity is very likely to be able to spread through all dimensions that may exist, these waves have become a very promising way to detect any dimensions beyond those we know exist.… Seguir leyendo...

Ancient mummy with elongated skull and three fingers discovered in Peru baffles experts

What do we know so far? According to a team of experts, the creature is 168cm tall with human-like features. The three extremely long fingers on each hand, the elongated cranium, as well as the lack of a nose and ears, set the being apart from ordinary humans.What on Earth is this creature? Image CreditIf there is one thing that mainstream researchers must admit, then it’s the fact that we have absolutely no idea about the exact origin of the human race, our complete history, and the fact that humanities past is shrouded in mystery. Proof of this was partially obtained in January of 2017 when a 3-fingered mummified hand was discovered in an abandoned Peruvian tunnel. Some believed that the ‘science fiction movie hand’ was a hoax, but researchers reported that it is biological and composed of skin and bone. X-Ray analysis showed that the mummified hand had six bones in each finger and according to initial estimates, the being to who the hand belonged to was around three meters tall. Curiously, the mummified remains were determined to be of an unknown origin, and do not belong to any three-fingered creatures discovered on Earth. But if the above story wasn’t exciting enough there is more.… Seguir leyendo...

The Great Pyramid of Giza—where the Ark of the Covenant was originally located?

According to ancient religious texts, the Ark of the Covenant also known as the Ark of the Testimony is a gold-covered wooden chest described in the Book of Exodus as containing the two stone tablets of the Ten Commandments. Named in various verses of the Torah and the Bible, the Ark remains a great mystery to historians. While some claim that it never existed, others still seek it, convinced that its existence is real. What if the Ark of the Covenant was, in fact, real, and has a mysterious connection to one of the most enigmatic ancient structures on the surface of the planet: The Great Pyramid of Giza?So what do we know about the Ark of the Covenant? We know it was a powerful ‘device’. Only a select few could approach it. When approached, anyone had to take extreme precautions and wear some sort of protective outfits. The ark was plated with gold. Furthermore, we know from the Book of Exodus, that after the Israelites were released from Egypt, God summoned Moses to the peak of the holy mountain giving him two stone tablets that were carved with the ten commandments. At that moment, God provided Moses with exact instructions on how to build the Ark of the Covenant, one of the most enigmatic ‘devices’ in the history of mankind.… Seguir leyendo...

Mysterious Volcano-shaped Pyramid in Peru baffles experts

A group of archaeologists has carried out a new investigation of a pyramidal structure known as “El Volcán” in the valley of Nepeña in Peru. Ever since its discovery, archaeologists have been left perplexed by the structure and its mysterious shape, modeled in ancient times to mimic the form of a Volcano. It should be noted, however, that there are no volcanoes in the vicinity of El Volcán to serve as models, nor indeed are any other examples of volcano-shaped structures known from Peru or elsewhere.In order to understand more about the enigmatic Pyramid, a team led by emeritus professor of the University of Missouri (USA), Robert Benfer, has investigated the construction discovered in the 1960s and published a study in the journal Antiquity. The structure known as ‘El Volcan’ has a height of 15.5 meters, with an inner “crater”, similar to that of a volcano. Scientists excavated a ditch in the volcano crater and discovered a collapsed ladder that descends under a layer of adobe to a plaster and mud floor – and a hearth containing charcoal and shell. Furthermore, thanks to radiocarbon dating experts were able to reveal the unusual occurrence of four total solar eclipses at the site over the span of just 11 years, an indicator that the structure may have been used to celebrate the victory of the moon over the sun indicates the Daily Mail.… Seguir leyendo...

Because what could possibly go wrong—scientists create a BLACK HOLE on Earth

Nothing could go wrong reassure experts. Using the world’s most powerful and advanced X-Ray laser, experts have managed to create a ‘MINI BLACK HOLE’ in a laboratory which could lead to numerous revolutionary developments in science.In this illustration, an ultra-intense X-ray laser pulse from SLAC’s Linac Coherent Light Source knocks so many electrons out of a molecule’s iodine atom (right) that the iodine starts pulling in electrons from the rest of the molecule (lower left), like an electromagnetic version of a black hole. Many of the stolen electrons are also knocked out by the laser pulse; then the molecule explodes. (DESY/Science Communication Lab)The machine used extremely bright, intense, fast flashes of light in order to capture atomic-level snapshots of nature’s fastest processes known to us. According to experts, a single pulse managed to strip away everything but a few electrons out of one atom from the INSIDE out. This resulted in a void that began to pull in electrons from the rest of the molecule—just as black holes feeds on a spiraling disc of matter in space. This new breakthrough is expected to advance the imaging of viruses and bacteria, something that could eventually lead to the development of better medicines in the near future.… Seguir leyendo...

On the verge of extinction? Surprise asteroid strike could wipe out humanity warns leading scientist

Are we on the verge of extinction? According to a leading scientist, a surprise asteroid strike could wipe out humanity, and we are not prepared. According to a leading astrophysicist, a surprise asteroid impact could wipe out the human species in just a matter of time, as thousands of potentially hazardous objects move towards Earth. It is a case of when an asteroid collision will happen, rather than if it will happen.According to Dr. Alan Fitzusimmon, it’s a case of WHEN an asteroid collision will occur and not IF it will occur, warning that each day experts discover new potentially hazardous objects that could collide with our planet. The experts warned that an UNEXPECTED impact in today’s word could annihilate major cities on Earth, and a LARGER asteroid could not only do that, but annihilate the human species as well. The warning issued by Professor Fitzsimmons highlights the threat for Asteroid Day, a global event on June 30. Professor Simmons will be joined by scientist Brian Cox and astronauts such as Apollo 9 astronaut Rusty Schweickart and International Space Station astronaut Nicole Stott. “It is important to know that scientists and engineers have made great strides in detecting Near-Earth Asteroids and understanding the threat posed by them.… Seguir leyendo...

NASA has found 10 NEW planets like Earth

NASA’s Kepler space telescope has discovered over 200 NEW planet candidates and TEN of them are eerily similar to Earth and could support alien life NASA reveals.Image Credit: ESO/M KORNMESSERScientists at NASA say that they planet-hunting Kepler space telescope has discovered 10 brand new planets outside of our solar system that most likely have the right size and temperature to potentially have life already developed on their surface, hinting that we may not be alone in the universe after all. The newly-found exoplanets orbit in the so-called “habitable zone” of their star, at a distance in which water may exist in liquid state—meeting one of the main conditions for life to develop on their surface. Since it was launched in 2009, the telescope has found a total of 4,034 potential planets, of which 2,335 are verified exoplanets. In turn, 50 of them are similar to the Earth and are candidates to harbor life. “Are we alone? Maybe Kepler today has told us indirectly, although we need confirmation, that we are probably not alone,” said Mario Perez, Kepler program scientist in the Astrophysics Division of NASA’s Science Mission Directorate, in a press briefing. As reported by NASA, the Kepler space telescope hunts for planets by detecting the minuscule drop in a star’s brightness that occurs when a planet crosses in front of it, called a transit.… Seguir leyendo...

A “Flying” Solar Ship, buried at the foot of the Great Pyramid of Giza

Many mind-boggling artifacts have been discovered in Egypt over the decades. Experts have found many ancient Egyptian tombs intact that somehow remained untouched for millennia still containing extremely valuable items left buried thousands of years ago, as gifts that the Pharaohs were to take with them to the afterlife. While many people consider gold and precious stones the most valuable pieces that can be found hidden beneath the desert, the truth is that there are countless other valuable artifacts whose price tag surpasses by far gold and precious stones. One such precious artifact is the ancient Solar Boat found at the foot of the great pyramid. It is a full-sized Ancient Egyptian vessel, which was sealed into a pit over 4000 years ago. But why have we not heard more about this astonishing discovery? The Solar Ship is now preserved in the Giza Solar boat museum built at the site in 1985 and it is completely dedicated to the preservation of solar boat, thanks to state of the art preservation technologies. Curiously, Khufu’s solar ship is one of the oldest, largest, and best-preserved vessels from antiquity.  It measures 44 meters long and 6 meters wide. Interestingly, among experts, it is acknowledged as the world’s oldest intact solar ship and has been described by researchers as “a masterpiece of Woodcraft”, one that could STILL sail today if put into water.… Seguir leyendo...

A German scientist predicted in 1952 that “ELON” would be associated with the colonization of Mars

In 1952, Wernher von Braun—a German scientist, considered as one of the most important rocket designers of the twentieth century, and was the design chief of the V-2 rocket, as well as the Saturn V rocket, which took mankind to the Moon— predicted that the name ELON would be heavily associated with the colonization of the red planet.Ring and familiar bells? Elon Musk, the genius behind SapceX and Tesla Motors is the leading mastermind behind our species’ effort to colonize our neighboring planet Mars. Elon Musk’s SpaceX company has already made history in more than one way and continues to break boundaries by creating low-cost and energy efficient spacecraft that may one day—hopefully soon—take mankind to Mars. If SpaceX does success in their efforts, Elon—specifically Elon Musk—will forever be associated with Mars.But, how could have Wernher von Braun—A German aerospace engineer and the man behind the development of one of the most advanced Nazi weapons, the V-2 rocket—have known about it in 1952? Wernher Magnus Maximilian Freiherr von Braun was a German mechanical and aerospace engineer, nationalized in 1955 in order to be integrated into NASA. He is considered as one of the most important rocket designers of the twentieth century and was the design chief of the V-2 rocket, as well as the Saturn V rocket, which took mankind to the Moon.… Seguir leyendo...
