Scientists Propose to Use Earth’s Heat As a Source of Renewable Energy

By | March 5th, 2014|Categories: Earth, Futurism & Technology, Uncommon Science|Tags: , , |

Scientists have developed a technique that enables to generate electricity from the heat that Earth releases into the atmosphere. American engineers believe that the thermal energy of the Earth, which is released into the environment, can be used as a renewable energy source for electricity production in some areas of the planet. The new technique, developed by Federico Capasso and his colleagues at Harvard University (USA), allows to produce electricity from the heat radiated by Earth into the environment. The experts came up with this idea when they discovered that the planet is “heating” space with a capacity of 100 million gigawatts. At present there are no technologies to extract electricity from the heat of the Earth. The authors of this study created a special scheme of […]

Genetically Modified Babies Are Already a Reality

The U.S. federal agency Food and Drug Administration (FDA) begins its consideration of biological procedures which, if successful, will allow to create genetically modified people, reports in an article for The New York Times Marcy Darnovsky, executive director of the Center for Genetics and Society. “This is a dangerous step”, warns Darnovsky. According to her, these methods will “change all the cells in the bodies of children born as a result of their use, and these changes will be […]

Future Control: New Mobile App That Can Predict the Future!

By | March 3rd, 2014|Categories: Futurism & Technology|Tags: , , |

Designer Dor Tal from Israel developed a concept gadget Future Control, which can analyze the information taken from the internet in order to make “predictions” about the actions of its owner. The Future Control Project focuses primarily on a new mobile application that requires access to the personal data of social networks, bank accounts, e-mail, calendar, messages, calls, etc. The algorithm of the app will analyze the information and provide predictions for the future. Future Control is going to be a kind of reminder-assistant, something similar to what is offered by […]

Biological Teleportation: It Is Possible to Teleport Living Beings!

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 […]

Alien Life Could Exist Inside the Black Holes, Claims Russian Scientist

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. […]

Albert Einstein’s Lost Theory about the Origins of the Universe Is Found

By | February 27th, 2014|Categories: History & Archaeology, Physics & Natural Sciences, Uncommon Science, Universe|Tags: , |

In a manuscript of Albert Einstein dated back to 1931, which had been neglected by researchers of his work, is found an alternative proposal for the creation of the Universe. 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 […]

Spanish Scientists Use Technology to Enhance the Capabilities of the Human Brain

Everyone has heard that we don’t use the full potential of our brain function. Scientists in a unique workshop in Barcelona, Spain, are working to unlock this potential. 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 […]

Unrevealed Secrets and Mind-Blowing Inventions of Nikola Tesla

By | February 24th, 2014|Categories: Futurism & Technology, Physics & Natural Sciences, Uncommon Science|Tags: , , , , |

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. Death rays At the threshold of World War II, Nikola Tesla suddenly announced […]
