The use and cultivation of yeast are possibly one of the oldest forms of biotechnology known to humanity. People have been leveraging its natural properties to make products such as bread and beer for
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” - Marcel ProustFor the first time, archaeologists got a clue of significant importance from the north of
For a long time it was suspected, but now there is solid evidence, via a set of images, that the supermassive black hole (SMBH) — dubbed Sagittarius A* and pronounced A star — is present in our galaxy
The main purpose of this research was to find out if some phenomena of quantum mechanics, such as the entanglement, could exist in living organisms.
Most good cappuccinos come with a dusting of cocoa powder to coat their top layers of steamed milk. This convention of barista work is intended to give the drink the aroma of chocolate, but not necess
Tobacco consumption can result in one of the world’s most common substance disorders. It is also associated with hundreds of thousands of preventable deaths per year. Tobacco addiction, also known as
In 1967, Professor Wheeler introduced the term "black hole" to the world. They are believed to be massive bodies (regions or stars), small in size and a powerful gravitational field from which even li
The intelligent processing unit (IPU) is being touted by its developers as the hardware solution with which to support and run AI programs. They are also being promoted as the natural successor to the
Physical activity has tons of well-documented benefits, ranging from increased heart and immune system health to improved brain function and healthier aging. In fact, maybe metabolic adaptation to act
Don’t you desire, at times, that you can throw out from that desire to binge-eat then just be pampered with sweet treats? Although you agree, unfortunately, our brain is not working in that manner.
As a planet, Saturn is perceived as swathed in softly-colored clouds, possibly in bands of an extremely fuzzy definition that surrounds the planet in uniform hooped bands. However, astronomers and ast
The availability and viability of live human organs for transplantation into needy recipients is a considerable healthcare problem. Reports suggest that there are over one thousand names on the waitin
The concept of carrying capacity is employed in a remarkably wide range of disciplines and debates, and it has been forcefully critiqued within numerous fields. Though, its historical origins still re
It was Neil Armstrong who, after stepping on the moon, said, “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” But it definitely seems as though modern-day science and the researchers of to
Modern medicine has still not managed to crack the problem of spinal cord injuries that result in significant paralysis or loss of functional status.There are numerous factors that influence the inabi
Discarded electronics are a potential hazard to the environment and to human living space. These products are still likely to end up in a landfill, in developed and developing countries, particularly
Ever had the experience of annoying ads following you around, from one site to another, based on your purchases or page views on Amazon? That process is done through automated tracking of your data as
The internet has now grown to the point at which it transmits trillions of bits of information every second. Furthermore, it is estimated to be capable of growing by at least a fifth of its current si
Fingerprint studies, predicted by climatic models, use pattern information to separate human and natural influences on the climate. Most fingerprint research relies on patterns of climate change that
The National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC) has estimated that millions of earthquakes take place globally that go undetected or are unreported. This could be due to their occurrence in remote l
The upcoming missions to further explore and investigate the Red Planet for habitability are informed by findings that there may be water when the new spacecraft arrives there.
Throughout history, natural disasters and human conflicts have destroyed a big part of our global heritage.Now, the world’s most celebrated places have been rebuilt in virtual reality (VR) environment
Jupiter, along with its set of satellites and atmosphere, is a pint-sized system within our solar system. The moon is a floating asteroid in space, which is captured by the gravitational pull of the p
X-ray technology is the oldest form of non-invasive imaging. This method can help create images based on the radiations that pass through the tissues when exposed to them. Therefore, medical X-ray tec
The brain is arguably one of the most complex organs in the human body. Every day, neuroscientists around the world are attempting to learn and understand the brain’s structure, and functions of its i
It has been observed that spiders use silk to ‘float’ through the air. Even Charles Darwin noticed that many of these creatures could alight on the Beagle during its voyage, only to leave on their own
It can be estimated that every year, in the United States alone, about 900,000 deaths can be prevented if there was no shortage of organs, or if transplants were not delayed and readily available to p
The next total lunar eclipse will occur at the end of this month, in 2018, according to bodies such as NASA. This event, while not to be the only one to occur this century, may be the most impressive
A few years ago, NASA’s mission to Saturn’s orbit, established that the planet’s moon, Enceladus, had a global ocean in its midst. Observations from this space operation indicated that the interiors o
The Barents Sea, which exists north of Norway, has been a unique marine ecosystem for decades. This is due to the sea's immediate proximity to the Arctic region and the yearly consignment of sea-ice.
We tend to think of computers as electronic brains, but the truth is that this comparison does not hold the bar to an actual human brain.Computers, effective as they have become, do not come close to
