A new study suggests that human neurons may have more computing power than once thought. Continue reading
We just might need new physics to get out of this mess. Continue reading
Listening to Flat Earthers talk about science and gravity is equivalent to hearing Leftists talk about how guns work. Continue reading
The discovery creates a helpful visualization of a previously misunderstood process in the universe.
Something is causing the waters just off the west coast to heat up dramatically, fish are dying off in staggering numbers, birds that feed on those fish are also dying off rapidly, and scientists have discovered 15,000 holes in the ocean floor off the coast of California. Oh, and scientists don’t know for certain why any of these things are happening. Continue reading
Today, all seems quiet in the remote Bikini Atoll, a chain of coral reef islands in the central Pacific. But more than 70 years ago, this region’s seafloor was rocked by powerful atomic bombs detonated by the U.S. Army. Continue reading
Humans have been thrilled and astounded by scientific and medical discoveries for centuries. And, despite the astonishing number of discoveries made down through the years, there is somehow always more to learn Continue reading
Astronauts are more than cosmic travelers. They’re also research subjects in the careful study of what exactly outer space does to the human body. On the ground, researchers measure vitals, draw blood, swab cheeks, and more. In orbit around the Earth, the astronauts do the work themselves. Continue reading
- Nature-based solutions can compete with technology to reduce toxic air emissions across the U.S.
- Restoring natural areas to county-level average canopy cover could reduce air pollution by an average of 27%
- In 75% of the counties, nature-based solutions ended up being less expensive than technological interventions such as smokestack scrubbers in mitigating pollution
- Maintaining current levels of vegetation as well as restoring vegetation cover in industrial areas could help reduce some of the most common types of air pollutants, including sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter
- A mycorrhizae network connects trees to each other in mind-blowing ways, such that trees might be viewed as beings with a capacity for intelligence, decision-making, learning and memory
