Wuhan-400 Coronavirus: 1981 Novel Predicts Virus Origin

In a bizarre coincidence, a 1981 fictional novel The Eyes of Darkness by Dean Koontz predicts a Coronavirus like outbreak and its origin. The book talks about how the virus called Wuhan-400, was developed in military labs around the Chinese city of Wuhan from where it got its name. The top secret information of the Biological weapons Program is later acquired by US intelligence from a Chinese defector. The American military is ultimately successful in creating a vaccine which the Chinese could not. - Full Story

 
 

The Stunning Viking Runestones Of Scandinavia

The region’s tradition of carving inscriptions into raised stones as a memorial began as early as the 4th century, but the vast majority of runestones still standing date from the 9th and 10th centuries, the latter years of the Viking Age. Scholars have attempted to translate many of the runic inscriptions, with varying degrees of success. Full Story Forbes - David Nikel

Fungi That Absorbs Radiation Has Been Growing All Over Chernobyl Power Plant

For a long time, scientists have known that certain types of fungi are attracted to radiation, and can actually help to break down and neutralize radiation in certain environments.

In 1991, while a team of researchers was searching the Chernobyl area remotely with robots, they noticed black-spotted fungi growing on the walls of one of the nuclear reactors. They also observed that the fungi appeared to be breaking down radioactive graphite from the core itself. The fungi also seemed to be growing towards the source of the radiation, as if it was attracted to it.

Follow up research in 2007, at the University of Saskatchewan found that different types of fungi are attracted to radiation. A team led by Professor Ekaterina Dadachova observed that some types of fungi grew more rapidly when exposed to radiation.

UFOs Unexplained Aerial Phenomena

How Will We Make First Contact With Alien Life? - Fifteen years ago next month, the crew of a U.S. Navy jet fighter made first contact with what some believe was extraterrestrial life. Serious-minded scientists have for decades carefully scrutinized outer space, searching for signals, artifacts, biological markers, or other evidence that life exists beyond Earth.

The real reasons the US government is so secretive about UFOs - Two years ago Sunday, the New York Times broke the stunning story of a secret Pentagon program to study unidentified flying objects. That story led me to delve into this strange world. I've learned some interesting stuff about UFOs ("unidentified aerial phenomena," or "UAP," as the Pentagon refers to them) since then. But there's one problem.

The United States government makes it very hard to figure out what and where UFO-related stuff is going on.

Is that because the government is behind some great conspiracy to cover up the proof of alien visitation to Earth? Is it because the government is in cahoots with alien species to create human-alien hybrids?



Billy Meier Story: UFOs and Prophecies from Outer Space - In 1958, Billy Meier predicted the Iraq Wars, AIDS and global warming.

Navy Officers Say 'Unknown Individuals' Made Them Erase Evidence of 2004 UFO Encounter - Several Navy officers who witnessed the now-famous Nimitz UFO encounter in 2004 say "unknown individuals" showed up after the event and made them turn over data recordings and videos, according to Popular Mechanics.

For several days in November 2004, a Navy missile cruiser sailing around 100 miles (160 kilometers) off the coast of southern California detected strange radar signals emanating from an object in the sky. The signals were erratic and didn't seem to match those given off by known aircraft. The Navy then deployed fighter jets to catch a closer glimpse of the strange object, and one succeeded in recording a blurry, black-and-white video that was, to the government's chagrin, publicly released in 2017 along with two other videos of UFO sightings from years later.



The truth is out there? Billy Meier's UFO images - Billy Meier is a Swiss national who in the 1970s claimed he had been in contact with aliens from the Pleiades star cluster - and had photographs to prove it. Published in a 1979 book by former United States Air Force pilot Wendelle C Stevens, they later appeared in publicity material for US science-fiction programme The X-Files. Now, they are up for auction at Sotheby's in the US, as part of a sale dedicated to space photography.

Interstellar visitors open new window to the cosmos - Distant reaches of the universe have long been the realm of models and theory. But the arrival of space rocks from afar in our stellar neighborhood sparks a new way of thinking about the cosmos.



Alien life could be more common than previously thought - While some in the scientific community believe finding extraterrestrial life is “probably going to take a long time,” others believe aliens could be more prevalent than previously thought.

A new study suggests intelligent life is likely to inhabit a star system drastically different than ours. The researchers modeled a theoretical Earth into binary star systems — those with two stars — and found that 87 percent of these “exo-Earths” should have the axis tilted similar to that of Earth, an important ingredient for intelligent life.

Archaeology and Anthropology

Rendition ancient Scandinavian Woman

DNA from Stone Age woman obtained 6,000 years on - This is the face of a woman who lived 6,000 years ago in Scandinavia. Thanks to the tooth marks she left in ancient "chewing gum", scientists were able to obtain DNA, which they used to decipher her genetic code.

This is the first time an entire ancient human genome has been extracted from anything other than human bone, said the researchers. She likely had dark skin, dark brown hair and blue eyes.

Indian Monkeys in ancient Greek Art

The fascinating “tail” of how Indian monkeys might have ended up in a Minoan painting -Archaeologists and primatologists re-analyzing wall paintings found in Akrotiri, a Minoan settlement on Thera (modern-day Santorini) buried by volcanic ash around 1600 B.C., have uncovered evidence that Bronze Age Greek artists knew of—and may have even seen—monkeys whose native habitat was thousands of miles away.



Is the Bible right? Newly discovered fossils show snakes had legs - A new study published in Science Advances on Thursday has shed light on the life of ancient legged snakes.

Now, a new study published in Science Advances on Thursday has shed light on the life of snakes' legged ancestors. Several fossils of an extinct snake group named "Najash" dating back to 100 million years ago were recently uncovered in Patagonia, Argentina. The group is named after the word nachash that both in biblical and modern Hebrew indicate the snake. As reported by the New York Times, the fossils, which include several skulls, seem to suggest that snakes might have lost their front legs millions of years earlier than their hind legs.



The story of the disappearance of the Peking Man fossils. - The second greatest mystery in anthropology (the first was why Neandertals disappeared) was the disappearance of a box of ancient skulls in China during the start of World War II.

In 1929, the first human-like skull was found in a cave on the hill by Chinese anthropologist Pei Wen-Chung and others working for the Cenozoic Research Laboratory at Peking Union Medical College. It was called the Peking Man, and it was recognized to be at least 500,000 years old. The story of their disappearance reads like an Agatha Christie mystery Novel



Prehistoric 'hobbit' mystery may have been solved - In their paper published in Biology Letters, study leader José Alexandre Felizola Diniz-Filho of the Federal University of Goias, Raia and collaborators point to the island rule originally proposed by zoologist J. Bristol Foster in 1964. Foster observed that when large-bodied species moved to an island, they would shrink as they evolved, eventually leaving dwarf descendants.



Ancestral home of modern humans is in Botswana, study finds - Scientists claim to have traced the ancestral home region of all living humans to a vast wetland that sprawled over much of modern day Botswana and served as an oasis in an otherwise parched expanse of Africa.

The swathe of land south of the Zambezi River became a thriving home to Homo sapiens 200,000 years ago, the researchers suggest, and sustained an isolated, founder population of modern humans for at least 70,000 years.





Weird Science

Genomics / Genetics

The big mystery at the centre of China’s gene-edited baby scandal: where is scientist He Jiankui? - While the whereabouts of a Chinese scientist at the centre of a gene-editing controversy remain a mystery, most of his research data released publicly this week “for the first time” has been available for about a year, according to Chinese scientists.

He Jiankui, former associate professor of life science at Southern University of Science and Technology of China in Shenzhen, shocked the world last year when he announced that he had edited the genes of twin Chinese girls to prevent them from inheriting HIV from their father. The development made the girls the world’s first gene-edited babies and unleashed a storm of criticism from the international scientific community and Chinese authorities for unethical use of the technology.

China confirms scientist genetically engineered babies — and more are on the way - Government investigators have confirmed a Chinese scientist’s claim of creating the world’s first genetically engineered babies, as well as the existence of a second pregnancy with a gene-edited embryo.

The Myth of Genetic Superbabies - A Chinese researcher recently disrupted the CCR5 gene, which builds a protein that acts as an entryway that HIV uses to gain entry to T-cells, allegedly creating the world’s first genetically engineered baby. Chinese officials moved swiftly to condemn the work, and rightly so. Gene-edited babies should probably always be prohibited, not because of fears of creating inequalities and advantaged “super babies,” but because of the reality that editing an embryo is not medically necessary. These modifications occur around conception rather than treating a suffering person—always involving introducing risk, and thus testing the age-old medical admonition of primum non nocere, meaning “first, to do no harm.”



Ultrasensitive protein method lets scientists ID someone from a single strand of hair - A new forensic technique could have criminals—and some prosecutors—tearing their hair out: Researchers have developed a method they say can identify a person from as little as 1 centimeter of a single strand of hair—and that is eight times more sensitive than similar protein analysis techniques. If the new method ever makes it into the courtroom, it could greatly expand the ability to identify the people at the scene of a crime.



The Disappearing Y Chromosome - In the 1960s, doctors counting the number of chromosomes in human white blood cells noticed a strange phenomenon. Frequently—and more frequently with age—the cells would be missing the Y chromosome. Over time, it became clear this came with consequences. Studies have linked loss of the Y chromosome in blood to cancer, heart disease, and other disorders.



NIH had hoped to create “humanized mice” for experimentation from the tissue of aborted babies. - (LIFE NEWS) This year we scored a massive win in our ongoing fight for life. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) under President Trump ended an alarming contract between the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and a California university that involved using aborted babies in medical research.

In what sounds like awful science fiction, NIH had hoped to create “humanized mice” for experimentation from the tissue of aborted babies. Let me say it again: humanized mice.



Study: The human lifespan is written into our DNA - Humans have a "natural" lifespan of around 38 years, according to a new method we have developed for estimating the lifespans of different species by analyzing their DNA. Over the past few years researchers have developed DNA "clocks" that can determine how old an animal is using a special type of change in the DNA called DNA methylation.



Could genetic engineering reverse aging? VIDEO



Chinese bio-tech company successfully clones cat - For years, Chinese scientists have been cloning animals for medical research. But now the practice is expanding to commercial use.

DNA From Long-Lived Bats Supports Prominent Human Life Extension Theory - Achieving eternal life has long been on humanity’s to-do list, but until we figure out how to upload consciousness to the cloud, we’ve got to make the best of our aging, increasingly decrepit skin suits. Fortunately, extending their shelf lives to unprecedented lengths is becoming a serious possibility, now that we’re starting to understand how the world’s longest-lived mammals survive so much longer than we’d expect.



Biologists identify pathways that extend lifespan by 500% - Scientists at the MDI Biological Laboratory, in collaboration with scientists from the Buck Institute for Research on Aging in Novato, Calif., and Nanjing University in China, have identified synergistic cellular pathways for longevity that amplify lifespan fivefold in C. elegans, a nematode worm used as a model in aging research.

The increase in lifespan would be the equivalent of a human living for 400 or 500 years, according to one of the scientists.



Fuel Cells

 

Betting On Hydrogen-Powered Cars - The automotive industry is taking another look at hydrogen fuel cells, but how they ultimately fare depends on a combination of consumer demand, automaker investment and infrastructure build-out.

Hydrogen fuel cell technology has been steadily advancing over the past six decades since the first practical fuel cell system was demonstrated by Cambridge engineering professor Francis Bacon. The technology itself dates all the way back to 1839. Since then many uses of hydrogen fuel cells have been employed as efficiency and effectiveness have been improved, but so far it has yet to achieve mass deployment.

Parallel Worlds: A Journey Through Creation, Higher Dimensions, and the Future of the Cosmos

Meet the scientist who thinks we all exist in multiple universes - Have you ever laid wide-awake in the late hours of the night wondering what your life would look like if you took that other job, moved countries, or ended up with someone else? While there’s no definite answer — and probably never will be — the idea that there’s multiple versions of you, living in various universes, isn’t as make-believe as you might think.

The national bestselling author of The God Equation takes us on a thrilling journey to explore black holes and time machines, multidimensional space and the possibility that parallel universes may lay alongside our own.

“A wonderful tour, with an expert guide.” —Brian Greene, New York Times bestselling author of The Elegant Universe

Kaku skillfully guides us through the latest innovations in string theory and its latest iteration, M-theory, which posits that our universe may be just one in an endless multiverse, a singular bubble floating in a sea of infinite bubble universes. If M-theory is proven correct, we may perhaps finally find answer to the question, “What happened before the big bang?”

But hindsight is 20/20: People really had no idea how the world actually worked in the past.


Study supports hypothesis something crashed into Earth 13,000 years ago, led to extinction of ice age animals - Around 13,000 years ago, giant animals such as mastodons, mammoths, saber-toothed cats and ground sloths disappeared from the Earth. Scientists have found evidence in sediment cores to support a controversial theory that an asteroid or a comet slammed into Earth and helped lead to this extinction of ice age animals and cooling of the globe.


The "singleton hypothesis" predicts the future of humanity - Nick Bostrom's "singleton hypothesis" says that intelligent life on Earth will eventually form a "singleton". The "singleton" could be a single government or an artificial intelligence that runs everything. Whether the singleton will be positive or negative depends on numerous factors and is not certain.

The Not-So-Subtle Subversiveness Of Satan Worship - Of all the iconic ghouls and figures of evil featured as Halloween decorations, costumes and horror film big bads, the devil himself tends to rank pretty high on the list each October. But why? What would draw us to the embodiment of all evil itself? For some it's about poking fun at what we regard as evil or taboo, and questioning our notions of what evil looks like — and even poking fun at broader social norms in the process. One of the most famous examples? Anton LaVey, the founder of the Church of Satan.



Scientists used artificial intelligence to discover a 2,000 year-old stick figure in Peru's mysterious Nazca Lines - The Nazca Lines in Peru are ancient geoglyphs, images carved into the landscape.

The chemical engineering professor said it was not logical for a “machine so complex” as man to have evolved from a monkey, but that it was more “interesting” to him to believe that “we come from a parallel world of the future.”

This thought experiment explains how quantum computers can time travel - You know how sometimes you find yourself facing off against an enemy spaceship in a Wild West-inspired laser duel where whoever fires first wins?

What if I told you that a group of researchers (a murder of physicists?) came up with a way for you to manipulate the very fabric of time and space so that, no matter who fires first, you both die? That’s probably not the best pitch you’ve heard for developing quantum computers. But it’s an interesting one.

The Search For Time Travelers On The Internet - Titor clearly understood some aspects of physics and time travel theories, and knew quite a bit about a 1970s portable computer known as the IBM 5100. According to Titor, the IBM 5100 was central to his mission. The specificity of his posts, as well as his willingness to make predictions about the future made him a bit of a legend. He's featured in several fictional works such as Steins;Gate, and is often mentioned in discussions about time travel.
