Researchers Devised A Method To Turn Standard Microscope Into Giga-Pixel Imager

Researchers Devised A Method To Turn Standard Microscope Into Giga-Pixel Imager

A microscope helps us to see objects that are too small for the naked eye by enlarging the objects thousands or millions of times. Lately, a team of researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) has devised a method to convert a relatively inexpensive conventional microscope into a billion-pixel imaging system that significantly outperforms the best available standard microscope.

Researchers Found Why Volcanoes Scream Before Eruption

Researchers Found Why Volcanoes Scream Before Eruption

It is not unusual for swarms of small earthquakes to precede a volcanic eruption. They can reach a point of such rapid succession that they create a signal called “harmonic tremor” that resembles sound made by various types of musical instruments, though at frequencies much lower than humans can hear. However, a new analysis of an eruption sequence at Alaska’s Redoubt Volcano in March 2009 shows that the harmonic tremor glided to substantially higher frequencies and then stopped abruptly just before six of the eruptions, five of them coming in succession.

Help Scientists Solve Big Genetic Mysteries Of The Brain

Help Scientists Solve Big Genetic Mysteries Of The Brain

NASA Lunar Science Institute (NLSI) is always excited by new citizen science opportunities, where members of the general public can help scientists solve big mysteries. Now a new Zooniverse project has been launched in association with the Medical Research Council (MRC) and the Medical Research Foundation (MRF): Worm Watch Lab, where you can help scientists solve mysteries of the brain by watching 30-second videos of microscopic worms and hitting your keyboard when the worms lay eggs.

Tea Leaves In Water Challenge Law Of Gravitation When Water Is Poured

Tea Leaves In Water Challenge Law Of Gravitation When Water Is Poured

Remember the incident – an apple fell on Newton’s head and he discovered that it is gravity for which if anything is released, it falls down, not goes upwards? Well, that law should be applicable for all things, but a physics undergrad named Sebastian Bianchi at the University of Havana in Cuba has found that particles like tea leaves may not follow the law of gravitation as they can float upstream while water is poured.

Scientists Find How Oxygen Was First Released In Earth

Scientists Find How Oxygen Was First Released In Earth

Although science and technology have lots of advancement it their territory, still a mystery remained – how and when the process responsible for producing oxygen (O2) on Earth through the splitting of water molecules first began. Lately some geobiologists at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have found evidence of a precursor photosystem involving Manganese (Mn) that predates Cyanobacteria, the first group of organisms to release oxygen into the environment via photosynthesis.

Slot Machine Sounds Have Tremendous Impact Upon Human Brain: Study

Slot Machine Sounds Have Tremendous Impact Upon Human Brain: Study

A slot machine is a casino gambling machine with three or more reels which spin when a button is pushed. When people win a bet on a slot machine, the machine rewards him/her with a celebratory noise. And if the people lose the bet, there’s usually not a noise. However, a new study has found that sound of slot machines can trick human’s brain.

MIT Trying To Enable Smartphone Cameras To Detect Heart Abnormalities And Pulse

MIT Trying To Enable Smartphone Cameras To Detect Heart Abnormalities And Pulse

Last year, a group of researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) showed how easy it is to “see” a human heartbeat in ordinary video footage. However, some scientists at CSAIL, MIT have shown that a smartphone’s camera can measure a human’s pulse and can even detect heart abnormalities.

New Study Claims Clapping Is Just As Infectious As A Disease!

New Study Claims Clapping Is Just As Infectious As A Disease!

During a function, people are often found clapping their hands to congratulate, inspire or cheer up. We believed that people clap their hands because they have enjoyed something. But according to a news study, when people clap at a performance, they’re not really driven by how much they enjoyed what they saw, instead they decide how long to applaud based on the applause they hear around them.
