A stunning “blue vortex” could change the future of fossil fuels

Fire may be one of the original innovations of humanity, but it is still surprising us hundreds of centuries after the first man-made flames. In 2016 scientists at the University of Maryland staged an entirely new type of flame as they investigated the use of fire vortices to clean up oil spills in water. Initially, the flame started as a …

As a protein it stops cells from attacking their DNA

A description of the double helix structure of DNA. Its four coding units (A, T, C, G) are color coded in pink, orange, purple and yellow. Credit: NHGRI Viruses multiply by injecting their own DNA into a host cell. Once introduced into the intercellular fluid, this foreign material triggers a defense mechanism known as the cGAS-STING pathway. The cyclic protein …

Dark Dinner Advancement lets you try three of the most popular theories, all at the same time

Two numerical simulations that predict the distribution of dark matter around a galaxy similar to our Milky Way. The left panel assumes that dark matter particles were moving rapidly in the early universe (dark warm matter), while the right panel assumes that dark matter particles were moving slowly (dark cold matter). The warm dark matter model predicts far fewer small …

Geoscientists record ‘Boomerang’ Earthquake in Atlantic Ocean | Geophysics, Geosciences

Earthquakes occur when rocks suddenly explode a fault – a boundary between two blocks or slabs. During large earthquakes, rock breakage can spread to the fault line. Now, geoscientists have recorded a ‘boomerang’ earthquake in equatorial Atlanta, where the rupture initially spreads away from the initial break, but then reverses and drives back to the next path at higher speeds. …

Rare ‘Boomerang’ earthquake followed by scientists in Ocean for the first time

Reconstructed image of the fracture area. Credit: Hicks et al. Scientists observed a bo boomerang ‘earthquake along the fault line of the Atlantic Ocean, providing clues as to how they could cause destruction on Earth. Earthquakes occur when rocks suddenly explode a fault – a boundary between two blocks or slabs. During large earthquakes, rock breakage can spread to the …

UFO image: ‘Ancient alien temple’ found in NASA Mars rover photos, claims UFO hunter | Strange | tidings

Alien plot theorists have been spreading Mars images for decades, seeking evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence – despite all the indications that none exist. However, UFO hunter Scott Waring is among those who remain unsuspecting. His latest bizarre claim comes in the form of an archival panorama taken from NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover. The NASA-verified gigapan photo was taken by the …
