Will the world shake with more large earthquakes in 2018? Time will tell.

Research linking large earthquakes to changes in the Earth’s spin remains to be tested. Amidst panic over planets that don’t exist and conspiracy theories about the moon landing on Google News this morning, one headline announced a more down-to-Earth sort of doom. “Deadly earthquakes could hit a BILLION people next year because of Earth’s slowing rotation,” warned The Daily Mail. ...

After 5-year study, scientists say unchecked Arctic melting may bring irreversible change

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Quickly melting ice in the Arctic with no effort to stop it may someday bring a stage where critical ecological change is uncontrollable, a team of international scientists said in a “groundbreaking” new report Friday. In the Arctic Resilience Report, released Friday, the team of scientists said Arctic ice is melting faster than ever before and it ... Read More »

New Supercapacitor Tech Produces Batteries That Charge in Seconds, Last for Days

The long hours that your smartphone takes to charge may soon become a thing of the past, as scientists, including one of Indian-origin, have developed a new process to make electronic devices charge in seconds. The researchers at University of Central Florida (UCF) in the US have developed a process to create flexible supercapacitors that have more energy storage capacity ... Read More »

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 Woes Highlight Explosive Limits of Lithium Batteries

Lithium-based batteries have been powering our portable devices for 25 years. But consumer demand for smaller, longer lasting devices is forcing manufacturers to push the technology, battery experts say, testing the limits of how much energy they can safely pack into smaller spaces. “A battery is really a bomb that releases its energy in a controlled way,” says Qichao Hu, ...

Nasa’s Hubble Spots Evidence of Water Plumes on Jupiter’s Moon Europa

Astronomers on Monday said they have spotted evidence of water vapour plumes rising from Jupiter’s moon Europa, a finding that might make it easier to learn whether life exists in the warm, salty ocean hidden beneath its icy surface. The apparent plumes detected by the Hubble Space Telescope shoot about 125 miles (200 km) above Europa’s surface before, presumably, raining ... Read More »

Greenpeace’s deadly war on science

Is Greenpeace committing a crime against humanity? A letter from 110 Nobel laureates suggests as much. It urges the environmental group to drop its campaign against genetically modified foods, particularly so-called “Golden Rice,” which could help prevent millions of deaths in the developing world. Calling GMOs food “Frankenfood” is a brilliant scare-mongering term, heavily promoted by Greenpeace. But it has ... Read More »
