It’s crunch time on climate change, and companies, governments, philanthropists, and NGOs around the world are starting to take action, be it through donating huge sums of money to the cause, building a database for precise tracking of carbon emissions, creating a plan for a clean hydrogen economy, or advocating for solar geoengineering—among many other initiatives. But according to Nvidia, […]

All hail the water bears. Tardigrades are one of the most fascinating creatures on Earth—and the moon. Last year, the Israeli spacecraft Beresheet crashed on the moon, spilling thousands of the dehydrated tardigrades that scientists loaded onto the lander (along with human DNA samples), according to a WIRED report. The tardigrades were in “tun” form, a dormant […]

No, this decline began tens of thousands of years ago. It’s something of a well-known secret among anthropologists: Based on measurements of skulls, the average brain volume of Homo sapiens has reportedly decreased […]

Source:https://www.nytimes.com/ By Dennis Overbye It might be possible, physicists say, but not anytime soon. And there’s no guarantee that we humans will understand the result. Once upon a time, Albert Einstein described scientific theories as “free inventions of the human mind.” But in 1980, Stephen Hawking, the renowned Cambridge University cosmologist, had another thought. In a […]

Source:https://astronomy.com/ By Bill Andrews  The ultimate cosmic shortcuts could make space travel easier. But do they exist? Wormholes make the best shortcuts in the universe. That’s true in a literal sense, since the theoretical things can connect distant corners of the cosmos (or even different universes), allowing a traveler to go someplace without having to visit […]

The Most Famous Dogs of Science.

Archaeologist Mary Leakey’s Dalmatians followed her to remote field sites where they […]
