These questions are not accidental, given that one of the theories about the origin of our species claims that the Earth is a place where souls go through a stage of reflection and correction. This is a prison planet where we all are incarcerated, that is why it is useless to aspire for universal peace and the perfect order of the world since living on this planet does not set such a goal.

Neutrinos, cosmic ray products with tiny, almost non-existent mass, are elementary particles like electrons, but lack electric charge.
According to a study published in the journal Science, the researchers detected through the detector IceCube 28 neutrinos from deep space in a glacier in Antarctica. These are the first particles outside our solar system observed during the last 26 years, and the discovery is believed to open a new chapter in (more…)
Having confirmed in practice the existence of the Higgs boson, experts at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) proceeded to check the theory of the existence of antigravity. This was reported by the British media.
According to the theory, antimatter generates its own gravitational field, which, in contrast to the known gravitational forces of the Earth, does not attract but repel.
“If the theory receives empirical confirmation, a real revolution will happen in the world of science”, notes the Broadcasting Company BBC. “This opens the possibility to use new forces in (more…)
In the “War of the Worlds” by Herbert Wells Martian invaders were defeated by the common cold, which none of the sides took into account. Could something similar happen to the astronauts who will land on Mars? What if the first extraterrestrial life form humans will come into contact with will be viruses? These issues are posed in the journal Astrobiology by Dale Griffin.
Biologists do not consider viruses living beings. They are smaller than bacteria and cannot reproduce themselves: that is why to survive they need to invade a cell and use its genetic tools. Nevertheless, it is viruses that (more…)
The ISON seems to be “injured” but “alive” after the “hot embrace” with the center of our solar system.
According to the latest data available to scientists, the ISON may have lost about 3 million tonnes and is heading towards disintegration, but so far, a small part of it continues its journey into space.
What previously caused the assertion that ISON is “dead” was the fact that initially (more…)
