According to a new Business Insider
report, scientists have always been a little fuzzy on the concept of black holes
. Largely, it was thought that black holes, given their incredible mass, would kill you upon entry. But through simulations, physicists have come up with different possible outcomes for entering a black hole. The reason is simple.
The event horizon is on the edge of a black hole. It’s the point beyond which matter or… Seguir leyendo
Everything in the universe tends toward decay, according to the second law of thermodynamics. Let’s face it: It’s a real bitch for every living thing, but all of a sudden, that unwavering law seems to have been bypassed, at least for a minuscule moment, by the Russians. Researchers claim to have developed the very first example of what could be a primitive time machine
at the atomic level. Doctor Who’s Tardis it isn’t, but could… Seguir leyendo

Astronomers have spotted a mysterious object in the outermost edges of our solar system, and according to initial reports, the astronomical object is located 140 times farther from the Sun than the Earth.
They’ve dubbed it ‘FarFarOut‘, honoring its predecessor discovered last year orbiting our sun at 120 Astronomical Units and dubbed FarOut.
It orbits the Sun at a mind-bending distance of 140 astronomical units (AU), which means its located 3.5 times farther out from… Seguir leyendo

According to a team of Israeli scientists, a cure for cancer
could be available within as little as a year. The cure in the form of a family of drugs could be administered to patients and fully cure various types of cancer within a few weeks with no other treatments needed. What’s more, they say that this cure would not adversely affect the body’s immune system or healthy cells, so recovery could be rapid.

According to a recent scientific paper, our planet narrowly escaped a catastrophic collapse of its magnetic field, the protective layer that shields Earth, some 565 million years ago.
Scientists say that had the magnetic field collapsed, life on Earth would have been nearly impossible.
They say that severe solar winds would have most likely stripped out planet of its atmosphere, causing harmful cosmic radiation to bombard the surface of the planet.
However, luckily, Earth’s core… Seguir leyendo
According to astronomers who met this past January, Congress, scientists and the rest of the world need to start taking the potential of finding extraterrestrial life
more seriously. Not just by searching for alien life, but anything that could indicate the presence of that potential life.

Earth’s near future may not be so bright.
In fact, according to a recent study, our future planet Earth could be extremely similar to our ancient planet Earth.
And that’s not necessarily a very good thing.
British and American Scientists warn that in around 10 to 12 years, our planet’s climate could resemble that of the middle Pliocene, a period that began more than 3 million years ago.
The study (published Monday Dec. 10, 2018… Seguir leyendo

According to a new scientific study, the approximate 7.6 billion human beings that populate our planet represent only 0.01% of all living beings on Earth. Despite this, we have led to the disappearance of 83% of wildlife (including 80% of marine mammals and 15% of fish). Furthermore, our civilization has cut plant biomass in half.
“This inadvertent culling has had a massive effect on the overall biosphere of our planet, leading to a situation where… Seguir leyendo
