Scientists consider how to visit the closest exoplanet

Scientists consider how to visit the closest exoplanet Scientists :Even at only around 4 light-years, a trip from Earth to Proxima b might still take tens of thousands of years Scientists :By now, you probably have heard that astronomers have discovered a new exoplanet orbiting the star closest to our sun. That star, Proxima Centauri, is 4.2 light-years away. In miles, that’s like 25 trillion. The new planet’s name is Proxima b. Because its star is so relatively close, some people wonder whether it would be possible to go there.…

Tiny microrobots team up and move full-size car

Tiny microrobots team up and move full-size car

Tiny microrobots team up and move full-size car   Scientists create itty bitty robots that work together like ants to move immense objects Microrobots : A group of ants can move objects many times larger and heavier than themselves. This ability inspired a team of researchers to develop small robots that can do the same thing. The team created 29-millimeter (1.1-inch) long robots that can get a firm grip on the ground. In tests, six of the ‘bots have just worked together to tow a full-size car. They didn’t move…

Teaching robots right from wrong

Teaching robots right from wrong

Teaching robots right from wrong   Scientists and philosophers team up to help robots make good choices Teaching : You’re rushing across the school parking lot to get to your first class on time when you notice a friend is in trouble. She’s texting and listening to music on her headphones. Unawares, she’s also heading straight for a gaping hole in the sidewalk. What do you do? The answer seems pretty simple: Run over and try to stop her before she hurts herself. Who cares if you might be a…

Scientists concludes Humans did NOT evolve alongside OTHER life on Earth

Scientists concludes Humans did NOT evolve alongside OTHER life on Earth

Scientists concludes Humans did NOT evolve alongside OTHER life on Earth According to a Scientists : controversial book written by a renowned environmentalist and ecologist,  human beings did not evolve ALONGSIDE other lifeforms on Earth. In fact, mankind did not evolve from that particular strain of life, but evolved elsewhere and was transported to Earth (as fully evolved Homo sapiens) between 60,000 and 200,000 years ago. What if we have been searching for alien life not knowing that we are in fact the aliens of Earth? A new theory proposed by Dr.…

Evidence Of Aliens? 5 Recent Signs We Are Not Alone

Evidence Of Aliens? 5 Recent Signs We Are Not Alone

Evidence Of Aliens? 5 Recent Signs We Are Not Alone The universe is not just vaster than we imagine, but vaster than we can imagine. Scientists estimate the cosmos contains hundreds of billions of galaxies. In all probability, somewhere deep in space there is a sun much like our own, which is shining on an alien civilization that is quite likely very different from ours. Perhaps, this extraterrestrial society is far more advanced than we are. Maybe, they have mastered intergalactic space travel and have visited our planet. Most scientists…

Impact crater linked to Martian tsunamis

Impact crater linked to Martian tsunamis

Impact crater linked to Martian tsunamis Scientists have located an impact crater linked to powerful tsunamis that swept across part of ancient Mars. The team believe an asteroid triggered 150m-high waves when it plunged into an ocean thought to have existed on northern Mars three billion years ago. Lomonosov crater in the planet’s northern plains fits the bill as the source of tsunami deposits identified on the surface. Details were outlined at the 48th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference. Although the idea has lost some of its currency in recent…

Scientists develop partially living 3D printed bio bots to lay principles for future builds

Scientists develop partially living 3D printed bio bots to lay principles for future builds Researchers at University of Illinois in the US made a soft 3D printed scaffold measuring a centimetre or two in length and seeded it with muscle cells.   Scientists have 3D printed small, soft bio-bots with living tissues that can not only walk and swim, but also have the ability to age as well as heal if there is an injury. Researchers at University of Illinois in the US made a soft 3D printed scaffold measuring a…

Earth Just had a Near Miss With an Asteroid

Earth Just had a Near Miss With an Asteroid

Earth Just had a Near Miss With an Asteroid Scientists on Earth and in space were shocked when an asteroid flew by Earth early morning Monday. Experts estimated the size of the asteroid close to that of a 10-storey building. Astronomers from the University of Arizona Catalina Sky Survey spotted the asteroid named 2017 AG13 on Saturday. Citing a video feed from Slooh, it noted that the distance between the flyby measured 239,000 miles, nearly half the distance between the Earth and the Moon. 2017 AG13 Asteroid The 2017 AG13…
