A supernova that took place some 150 light years away from Earth could have sent off a tsunami of cosmic energy that eventually stormed through the earth’s atmosphere triggering climate change and mass extinctions of large marine species such as Megalodon.
In November 2018, Elon Musk received permission to launch 7,000 satellites into orbit. It's not a vanity project — and he wasn't even the first to receive permission that day. Three other companies did as well, and "Sir" Richard Branson of Virgin Galactic has been talking for years about launching a constellation of satellites into orbit. The goal of projects like these is to, among other things, create an omnipresent wireless internet across the planet.
You have probably seen the Instagram live video of a girl shooting her phone while streaming. Well, the phone however continued to work: you can hear the full gunshot sound and even see the recoil before the stream came to complete halt. But, is it possible for a modern smartphone to stream its own destruction?
Humans think using the brain’s navigation system. The system comprises two active cells: place cells in the hippocampus, and grid cells in the neighboring entorhinal cortex that work hand in hand to help us navigate, and think.
Fire is our sensory experience of a chemical reaction called combustion. Fire stimulates a lot of our senses at a time that it makes us create a scenario we expect to come from a physical thing. Combustion causes that to happen using fuel, heat and oxygen.

The World Wildlife Fund’s Living Planet Report 2018 has released its latest document that provides a comprehensive view of the Earth’s health – and it’s depressing. Between 1970 and 2014, populations of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians have, on average, declined by 60 percent. This plunge in the size of populations of vertebrate animals is the result of human modification of natural landscapes and overexploitation, the report notes.
Scientists have been able to determine the well examined fossil of Archaeopteryx lithographica, which was once considered flightless - is actually a separate species of Archaeopteryx that could fly.
A team of geologists from Tokyo Metropolitan University have developed a deep neural network machine learning model that studies earth’s geomagnetic field data for faster warnings before earthquakes and tsunamis.
