So you made your way to this article, but how did you do it? Did your motor cortex fire up the muscle fibers in your fingers to click on a particular area of the screen, prompting the CPU inside your device to load up this page? One day that could all seem decidedly archaic. That’s because some sm...
It's a big, crazy world out there, so it's understandable that strange stuff happens in it. Fortunately for us puny humans, science has been able to explain some of it. But, in the same way that explaining a joke ruins it, it remains to be seen whether or not science's explanations take the fun out ...
Credit: Viktor Fiker | Dreamstime The average temperature on Earth is in danger of exceeding a major climate threshold inside a decade, say researchers in Australia, if a dormant source of warming in the Pacific Ocean switches on, giving a boost to global temperature rise. Under the 2015 Paris Agree...

Public, private and hybrid cloud implementations will accelerate in 2017 as CIOs seek to take advantage of the cloud’s economies of scale to build core applications. Cloud computing has helped many enterprises transform themselves over the last five years, but experts agree that the market is ent...
This is an illustration of layers of radiation belts close to Earth that were produced as a result of Cold War high-altitude nuclear explosion tests. The ongoing debate about global warming and climate change includes arguments about whether our world actually faces such a problem, and whe...
Why are we the way that we are? Is there anything we can do to change the way we think, behave, and react? And even if we come to know how the brain works, are we limited by our underlying circuitry or can we overcome our limitations? Over the years, TED has put on dozens of amazing presen...
There are enough things in this life to worry about. Like nuclear war, climate change, and whether or not you’re brushing your teeth correctly. The Earth spinning too fast should not be high up on your list, simply because it’s not very likely to happen anytime soon—and if it does, y...
Composite; NASA Scientists believe they may have discovered evidence of a parallel universe that crashed into our own in a galactic impact mirroring a car crash. Since 2004, when it was first spotted by NASA, scientists have been baffled by the discovery an unusually cold region of space which is 1....
We’ve seen a few concepts imagining what iOS 11 could look like, but today the folks at MacStories have put together a video highlighting new features that could come to the iPad as part of the update. The incredibly well thought out concept imagines features such as system-wide dra...
Tabby's star, famous for its inexplicable dips in brightness, is going through one of those dips right now. As far as weird stars go, few are as strange as KIC 8462852, nicknamed Tabby's star. Tabby's star randomly dims and brightens for apparently no reason, which led some astronomers in 2015&...
The invisible shield is the result of very low frequency radio communications interacting with particles in space. Earth might seem like a cozy place to live, and that's mostly true, but only due to a very thin protective barrier generated by our planet's magnetic field. Without this natural shield,...
If you're nervous about public speaking, you're not alone—it's so common a fear that it even has its own name: Glossophobia. A 2013 StatisticBrain survey found that 74 percent of adults have anxiety about speaking in public....
Most of the time, NASA spends its days searching for and studying things in space that resulted from natural phenomena — like creepy valleys on Mars and vast oceans on Europa — but its newest discovery is quite different. In a new paper published in Space Science Reviews, researchers reveal...
Adventurous people out there have the resources to explore the farthest reaches of the Earth. But while it seems every last spot will get explored, researched, and photographed, there do remain some places that have barely been touched—or haven't been seen at all. From the deepest depths to the hi...
Our solar system is pretty sweet. It supports life on Earth and is relatively safe — at least, it is for now. These little tweaks would utterly doom life on Earth. If Jupiter wasn't there Shutterstock Jupiter isn't just a cool planet with tons of moons around it. Astronomers theorize that our big ...

NASA discovers humans have created an artifical barrier around Earth, and it could protect us from space weather NASA space probes have discovered an artificial barrier around Earth created through human activity—showing we are not only responsible for shaping the environment on land, but that we...
Neuralink – which is “developing ultra high bandwidth brain-machine interfaces to connect humans and computers” – is probably a bad idea. If you understand the science behind it, and that’s what you wanted to hear, you can stop reading. But this is an absurdly simple narrative t...
Artificial Intelligence, gamification, interactive wearables, home medical testing – the latest innovations push the boundaries of health tech. From virtual reality pain relief to a finger prick blood test monitor that helps chemotherapy patients manage their treatment, these groundbreaking techno...
A new theory involving quantum vacuum offers a possible reason that causes the phenomenon, which was first discovered by astronomers in 1998. Ever since the Big Bang occurred 13.8 billion years ago, one constant feature of the universe’s existence has been its expansion. Not only has the universe ...
Scientists believe they have moved a step closer to proving the existence of a parallel universe with the discovery of a mysterious ‘cold spot’. This cool patch of space, that was first spotted by the NASA WMAP satellite in 2004, is part of the radiation that was thought to have been p...
This is a public domain image showing the planet Mercury crossing our sun. Whenever a story comes out claiming to show real pictures or video of UFOs, hope springs eternal that maybe, just maybe, this might be that elusive smoking-gun evidence of alien technology. Not a day goes by, either, without ...
CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) — The days of typing in a search engine or scrolling through music playlists are fading. Many people now have voice recognition assistants that can perform certain tasks as soon as you ask. But, as technology advances, so do hacking tools. News 2’s Consumer Investigator Lib...
The discovered of this supernova, Patrick Wiggins, took these two images of the Fireworks galaxy on May 12th and May 14th, with the additional light in the more recent image showing the location of the night sky's newest supernova. After burning bright for millions of years, the brightest stars of a...
What the hell is that thing? If there is one thing social media teaches us today, it's not to leave naming rights up to the hive mind. Move over Boaty McBoatface – a group of aurora enthusiasts have given a newly discovered atmospheric phenomenon the name 'Steve', because ... well what e...
A global view of the entire Antarctic region, most of the Southern Ocean, large portions of the southern Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, as well as the island of Madagascar and southern Africa. Scientists believe a massive object that could change our understanding of history is hidden beneath the Anta...
