Renowned geneticist Craig Venter, one of the pioneers of synthetic biology, claims that the technologies needed to teleport living beings already exist. However, till now he is talking only about viruses and bacteria. But maybe someday it can be true for humans too.
In 1995 a group of scientists from the J. Craig Venter Institute, JCVI, launched a project “minimal genome“, whose goal was to leave in the genetic code only the essential information for the existence of a living organism. The research was based on the bacterium Mycoplasma genitalium, which at that time had the smallest genome of all known (482 genes). In 1999, Venter reduced the number of genes to 382, creating a (more…)
Black holes in space, as we all know, ‘swallow’ anything found before them. All objects that fall into the trap of black holes get lost in the “eternal oblivion.” All? “No” replied Vyacheslav Dokuchaev, scientist of the Institute of Nuclear Research of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Russian scientist developed a new theory, which states that some black holes may have a more complex internal structure, which lets photons, particles and even planets rotate in orbits inside their core without getting lost in their abyss. (more…)
The renowned scientist suggested that instead of the Big Bang, the Universe was expanding continuously and eternally, a theory supported by the British physicist Fred Hoyle two decades later.
The Big Bang theory began to flourish when the American astronomer Edwin Hubble discovered in the 1920s that the universe expands. Since the Universe today is greater than yesterday, logic dictates that (more…)
The reason for this is that they want to find a way for the human brain to perform better in the today world, which is filled with information.
Data collection is easy. The hard part is to make sense of them. However, living in a deluge of data, people often cannot cope with complex databases. The researchers are working with sophisticated virtual reality tools in order to (more…)
Until the early twentieth century, electricity in the eyes of the inhabitants remained a product of scientific curiosity just like the Large Hadron Collider now – nothing more than a toy to entertain a handful of physicists.
Nikola Tesla was probably the most prominent of those scientists and inventors who with his pioneering work made electricity inseparable part of our lives.
During his long career Tesla received over 111 U.S. patents and approximately 300 in other countries.
Trying to improve the Edison light bulbs, the great Serb developed neon and even fluorescent light bulbs and switched them on from the distance via electrostatic waves.
The invention of radio controlled cars put him among the pioneers of robotics. According to some reports, he even managed to get the first x-rays in 1896, almost simultaneously with Conrad Roentgen.
At the threshold of World War II, Nikola Tesla suddenly announced (more…)
