Buckminster Fuller’s House, World’s First Geodesic Dome Home, To Be Restored, Preserved

On April 19, there will be a groundbreaking near Southern Illinois University to celebrate the restoration and preservation of the world’s first geodesic dome home, originally built by Buckminster Fuller and his wife, Lady Anne, in 1960. The ceremony at the Fuller Dome Home in Carbondale will be open to the public, free of charge, […]

2012 Solar ‘Superstorm’ Linked To Collision Of Huge Sun Eruptions

Physicists in Beijing have determined that the 2012 solar storm was due to the interaction of three huge ejections of particles and magnetic field from the sun. One coronal mass ejection erupted on the then far side of the sun on July 19, 2012. Then two more erupted four days later, and only 15 minutes […]

Evolved Worm Takes A Bite Out Of The Future Of Bio-Engineered Corn

Just like scientists predicted, rootworms — a voracious crop-eating pest — have developed a resistance to the corn engineered to kill them. Bt corn, the most popular type of genetically modified maize, is designed to express one or more proteins poisonous to a variety of insect pests. It has been one of biggest success stories […]

Hawking Claims Bet Victory After Gravitational Wave Discovery

CAMBRIDGE, England (UPI) — Professor Stephen Hawking of Britain’s University of Cambridge is claiming victory in a bet following the discovery of gravitational waves in space. Hawking said the discovery of the gravitational waves rippling through the universe, which were discovered by Harvard Smithsonian Center scientists working with NASA and U.S. National Science Foundation researchers […]

Night-Vision Contact Lenses Could Be Available In The Near Future

Currently, it’s mostly just cats, owls, and Navy Seals that can see in the dark, but soon, night-vision technology might be available to the masses. Researchers at the University of Michigan have developed night-vision infrared technology that could potentially be squeezed down to the size of a contact lens. “We can make the entire design […]

Chicken Bones Tell Story Of Early Pacific Migration

Why did the chicken cross the Pacific? To help modern-day scientists retrace the path of early Polynesians from islands of Southeast Asia to the Pacific islands to South America. Although it’s debatable whether the chickens had much say in the matter, that’s exactly what scientists have done. By matching a genetic signature of the original […]

The Planet Mercury Is Shrinking

Mercury, already the solar system’s smallest planet, is still shrinking, scientists say. New imagery captured by NASA’s MESSENGER, launched in 2004 and put into Mercury’s orbit in 2011, shows that the planet closest to the sun has contracted by more than 4.3 miles during its four billion-plus years of existence — much more than previously […]

Antarctic Moss Resurrected After 1,500 Years Frozen In Permafrost

A handful of people, including the great baseball slugger Ted Williams, have been preserved or “frozen” in liquid nitrogen. As of now, no one has ever been brought back to life. But even if humans can’t be frozen and later brought back to life, moss can. Scientists with the British Antarctic Survey and the University […]

Scientists Find Evidence Of Cosmic Inflation, Support For Big Bang Theory

For the first time history, scientists say they have direct evidence of cosmic inflation — the rapid expansion of the early universe — and proof of the long-established Big Bang theory. The evidence is a type of polarization noticed in the oldest light in the universe, and the discovery was announced Monday by American scientists […]

New Study Finds More Intelligent People Are More Trusting Of Others

The smarter you are, the more likely you are to trust others. Seems counterintuitive, but that’s the conclusion of a new study carried out by researchers at Oxford University. The researchers discovered the correlation between intelligence and a willingness to trust others by analyzing data from the General Social Survey, a public opinion survey collected […]
