Scientists discover gigantic ‘structure’ under the surface of the Moon
One hidden feature of the Moon has been unearthed by scientists and it’s very, very big, and very, very heavy. Buried beneath its South Pole-Aitken basin – one of the largest preserved craters in the Solar System – is a structure which weighs at least 2.18 billion kilogrammes and measures more than 300km (186 miles)…
Scientists witness what the end of the Earth could look like
Well, there’s a cheery thought! Few people would want to know the time and nature of their own demise, but for planet Earth, its fate is sealed. In five billion years it will likely be engulfed by our own Sun and devoured by a stellar inferno. For more, check out this Telegraph/MSN story.
NASA extracts oxygen from lunar soil
That could be a big step towards living on the Moon. The Carbothermal Reduction Demonstration (CaRD) experiment could prove vital for producing oxygen for breathing, as well as for propellant for transportation. For more, check out this The Independent story.
A Leak At The Bottom Of The Pacific Ocean Has Scientists Worried
It could be a harbinger of the “big one.” A leak in the Pacific Ocean’s floor has scientists concerned it could fuel “the big one,” a magnitude-9.0 earthquake that would be one of the strongest earthquakes the U.S. has ever seen, and has been the source of fears in the Pacific Northwest for years. For…
Reason Why Lithium-Metal Batteries Fail
Now that they know why, scientists can build better lithium-metal batteries to eventually produce more electric vehicles. The researchers combined an electric probe and an electrolyte to create a miniature battery in an attempt to understand why lithium burrowed into certain areas and caused a short circuit. When resting, the lithium anode performed as designed,…
China Built a Hypersonic Generator That Could Power Unimaginable Weapons
This can’t be good…a Hypersonic Generator in China? Chinese scientists say one formidable explosion inside a shock tunnel can turn hot gas into the most powerful hypersonic generator a military has ever seen—strong enough to charge military lasers, rails guns, microwave weapons, and more.

Experiment Shows Light Can Cross Through Gaps in Time
Wow, a ground-breaking Physics experiment showed light can cross through gaps in time. In a new version of the experiment, scientists made light cross through gaps not in space, but time. The findings, published Monday in the journal Nature Physics, could lead to new, unusual ways to control light, such as photonic time crystals —…
AMD CEO on AI: Most Important Thing of The Next 10 Years
A lot of chatter and enthusiasm over AI recently. When I think about AI, I think about it in two pieces, one is the AI that’s under the covers which is the data analytics, how do we become smarter with all of this.. tons of data that is being generated and how do we make…
Scientists Discover Way To Use Wormholes For Intergalactic Travel
Wahoo! Interstellar travel 🙂 The stuff of science fiction movies like Interstellar or the MCU’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is coming closer to reality. According to Vice , scientists are looking into creating a supercomputer that would allow them to send information through wormholes, opening the doorway to possible forms of intergalactic…
