Voyager 1 Hits Rumble Strips At the Edge of the Solar System

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. 12 Events That Will Change Everything, Made Interactive.

I CONTACT is essentially a mouse fitted to your eyeball. The lens is inserted like any other normal contact lens except it’s laced with sensors to track eye movement, relaying that position to a receiver connected to your computer. Theoretically that should give you full control over a mouse cursor. I’d imagine holding a blink correlates to mouse clicks. Spontaneous Human Combustion. 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. Evolution Of Man - What is it?

Evolution Of Man

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. How High Can We Build? Slab of Barrier Reef sea floor collapsing, could cause tsunami, say scientists. By Agence France-PresseThursday, December 20, 2012 21:45 EDT A huge slab of sea floor near the Great Barrier Reef is in the early stages of collapse and could generate a tsunami when it finally breaks off, researchers warned Friday.

Marine geologists from Australia’s James Cook University have been using advanced 3D mapping techniques on the deepest parts of the reef — below diving depth — since 2007 and have discovered dozens of sub-marine canyons.

Continuum of Change: The Hairless Human

But the fossil record shows that there was no instant leap to humanity: rather our species’ physical hallmarks appeared gradually over the past several million years. “Humans did not suddenly come into existence, but we share features with many other [species],” John G. Fleagle, an anatomist at Stony Brook University, has said. Fingernails evolved 54 million years ago (mya) and the opposable thumb 25 mya, for instance. Why Our Brains Love Junk Food.

What was up with Pythagoras? How Will Evolution Change Humans? When you ask for opinions about what future humans might look like, you typically get one of two answers. Some people trot out the old science-fiction vision of a big-brained human with a high forehead and higher intellect. Others say humans are no longer evolving physically—that technology has put an end to the brutal logic of natural selection and that evolution is now purely cultural. The big-brain vision has no real scientific basis. Print Your Own 3D models (by @baekdal) #trends. PlusBooksanalysisinsightsopinionblog About BaekdalFollow Baekdal RSSAdvertiseSearch.
