Comments Off on NASA captures early explosion of massive supernova for the first time ever

NASA ’s Kepler telescope managed to record, for the first time ever, the early shockwave of an exploding star , thanks to a super fortunate bit of luck. The light captures, reconstructed into ‘footage,’ reveal the bright “shock breakout” that occurred in the early part of the supernova event of a massive star roughly 500 times the size of our sun and around 1.2 billion light years away. Scientists found it while searching Kepler’s collections of light from 500 different galaxies. Read the rest of NASA captures early explosion of massive supernova for the first time ever

An Israeli air force veteran and security consultant has created an innovative new device that could potentially replace x-rays, metal detectors, chemical sensors, and hands-on bag searches at large venues. The honeycombed-shaped device, called the Qylatron Entry Experience Solution , is capable of quickly and accurately scanning bags for contraband and weapons — a single machine can screen five people at a time or 600 per hour.

Comments Off on El Niño is here – and it is causing winter weather chaos across the US

After months of speculation , the potential record-breaking El Niño event of 2015-16 is upon us, and the impact is being felt in unsettling ways across the United States. In the past week, the Pacific Northwest has been struck with torrential rainfall, flooding, and mudslides. Two people were killed and huge swaths of the region were without power as a result of this extreme weather. The west and midwest has been slammed with snow and the east coast has been positively toasty. But as devastating as El Niño has been in some areas, and particularly for the Northwest, its impact may prove particularly destructive in California. While rain will provide  some relief to the drought-stricken Golden State , it may also come with a high cost. Read the rest of El Niño is here – and it is causing winter weather chaos across the US

Comments Off on Vincent the disabled cat receives new titanium legs

In a experimental procedure, a 3-year-old cat named Vincent has been fitted with rare, high-tech titanium prosthetics that attach directly to the bone of his injured limbs. Found abandoned as a kitten with injured back legs, he was immediately adopted by an employee of the Story County Animal Shelter and put on a physical therapy program to help him learn to walk on the stumps of his hind legs. Unfortunately, as he grew, his weight began to put too much pressure on the area, causing him painful sores. That was when his doctor decided to try an innovative new surgery to help Vincent walk like a normal cat. Read the rest of Vincent the disabled cat receives new titanium legs

Botswana secretly sold fracking rights to more than half of one of Africa’s largest conservation areas, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. Drilling for shale gas may have already begun, according to evidence found by the Guardian , although government officials claim that isn’t the case. Scientists and conservationists are worried about the imminent impact on local wildlife and ecosystems, and their concerns are elevated by the fact the government kept the sale a secret for over a year.

Even  the G7  admits that the world will eventually need to adopt a completely carbon-free economy. In a recently published study, researchers at University of California and Stanford University reveal a road map that, if implemented, could allow humanity to make the switch to a carbon-free economy by 2050.
