Physicists theorize dark matter could actually be created in the most powerful particle collider in the world - the 27 kilometer-long Large Hadron Collider (LHC), in Geneva, Switzerland. So, how would they do it?
Mosquitoes could be genetically engineered so that they don't bite people. Now, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has granted $500,000 to researchers of University of Nevada to create mutant mosquitoes that have no sense of smell for human flesh.
Scientists have used magnetic nanoparticles to directly control physical movements of mice. Using a technique called Magneto-Thermal Stimulation, researchers activate sections of the brain that cause mice to run, rotate or lose control of the extremities.
The achievements made in technology and medicine, even over just the past century,are astounding. Science has accomplished so much and has taken society to new heights by answering both the questions of the time and those we never even knew we had. But, here are some of the questions science still have difficulty answering to this day.
If you throw a mouse from a skyscraper onto something soft, let’s say – a stack of mattresses, the mouse would land and be stunned for a moment but probably survive. But, if you throw a dog and an elephant, the dog would break all of its bones and die in an unspectacular way, and the elephant would explode into a red puddle of bones and insides. Why would the mouse survive the fall, but the dog and elephant wouldn’t?
Quantum computers are a tool of destruction, not creation, according to Alexander Lvovsky, Quantum Optics group leader at the Russian Quantum Center. All the sensitive data sent over the internet is encrypted in order to protect the privacy of the parties involved, but quantum computers can make modern cryptography obsolete.
If the forecast high temperature in your city is 36 degree Celsius (96.8 degree F), but the heat index makes you feel like it’s 42 degrees (107.6 degree F) – blame the humidity. But why does humidity make it feel hotter?
Hubble has detected glowing water molecules around a planet outside our solar system for the first time. And, this gives us the strongest evidence to date for a stratosphere on an exoplanet.
Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell generally releases videos that make people feel existential dread when watched, but this video “Optimistic Nihilism” is somewhat different from the rests.
