Newly found world orbits Alpha Centauri B, 4.3 light years from our Sun It is the lightest exoplanet yet found orbiting a Sun-like star It is thought to be too hot for life, and there is likely no water present But presence suggests there may be other planets within the same system By Daily Mail Reporter PUBLISHED: 08:18 GMT, 17 October 2012 | UPDATED: 12:37 GMT, 17 October 2012

With contributor Harel Dor recently sharing with SciFi Ideas a story idea that makes full use of teleportation technology – Meet the Beamies – I thought it was high time we discussed teleportation in detail. Teleportation is one of science fiction’s most fascinating and useful ideas, being both a cool gadget and a clever narrative device; however, with lots of talk about quantum entanglement, ideas about how teleportation might actually be achieved can also be very complex. To help you understand what the science geeks are talking about and dispel some of the myths about the reality of teleportation, here’s an idiot’s guide to what this word actually means. Teleportation is impossible. Teleportation has also been achieved.

A lot of us have heard about Soul Retrieval, which is the return of lost soul fragments (or lost parts) of ourselves. Soul Retrieval is a classical shamanic practice, and in some communities, it was the primary method of maintaining health or power. The word soul equates to our life-force, and in shamanic terms, we are a composite of souls or life-force, and this explains why we can become fragmented. The Shipibo - Conibio Indians of the Upper Amazon Rainforest, for example, regard every part of our body as having a soul; arms, hands, organs, glands, bones and so on, and part of their healing practice is to journey to retrieve the soul or life force of a particular part of the body as a pre-requisite for the healing on the physical level to take place.
Something strange is happening to the Voyager 1 spacecraft. After 35 years of travel, NASA’s oldest interstellar spacecraft is now some 20 billion kilometres from the Sun. It’s easy to imagine that conditions in this isolated region of space would be quiet and calm but on 25 August, the spacecraft’s instruments suddenly went haywire, recording changes unlike anything it has seen throughout its long journey. Today, Bill Webber at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces and a few pals detail the dramatic changes Voyager has experienced and suggest various explanations for the phenomenon.
Can this machine operate forever? Since at least the 12th century , man has sought to create a perpetual motion machine; a device that would continue working indefinitely without any external source of energy. A large scientific contingent thinks such a device would violate the laws of thermodynamics , and is thus impossible.
Contact Lens Kinda Makes You Cyborgy This one’s kinda hard to swallow so take a deep breath, open your minds, and pretend it’s 2100.
Spontaneous Human Combustion Spontaneous human combustion is the alleged burning of a person's body without a readily apparent, identifiable external source of ignition. The combustion may result in simple burns and blisters to the skin, smoking, or a complete incineration of the body.
Evolution Of Man - What is it? The modern theory concerning the evolution of man proposes that humans and apes derive from an apelike ancestor that lived on earth a few million years ago. The theory states that man, through a combination of environmental and genetic factors, emerged as a species to produce the variety of ethnicities seen today, while modern apes evolved on a separate evolutionary pathway. Perhaps the most famous proponent of evolutionary theory is Charles Darwin (1809-82) who authored The Origin of Species (1859) to describe his theory of evolution.
