Researcher Believe Jellyfish May Unlock The Secret To Immortality

Researcher Believe Jellyfish May Unlock The Secret To Immortality

Christian Sommer, a German marine-biology student, discovered in 1988, while conducting research on hydrozoans, that the dialogue “the secret to immortality lay in a coral found on the ocean floor” could be true. After few researches, researchers now believe that Jellyfish may unlock the secret to immortality.

Scientists Developing Atomic Interferometry To Detect Gravity Waves

Scientists Developing Atomic Interferometry To Detect Gravity Waves

Albert Einstein predicted – the existence of gravitational waves that ripple outward from moving celestial objects such as stars or black holes become so weak by the time they reach Earth that the planet quivers by less than an atom’s width in response. And now NASA wants to harness that spooky quantum behavior of atoms to help detect the gravitational waves. Get the amazing details inside.

Princeton Chemist Reaches Close To A ‘Midas Touch’

Princeton Chemist Reaches Close To A ‘Midas Touch’

For centuries, man has tried to find way to create gold from common metals. However, it is about time to think that perhaps, our pursuit was misguided. A chemist at Princeton University is now challenging this age-old approach. Dr. Chirik has been successful, to some extent, in creating ways of making one element ‘behave’ like another, more precious element.

New Material Can Convert Waste Heat Directly Into Electricity

New Material Can Convert Waste Heat Directly Into Electricity

For decades, physicists have toyed with ways to convert heat into electricity directly. Materials known as thermoelectrics use temperature differences to drive electrons from one end to another. The displaced electrons create a voltage that can in turn be used to power other things, like a battery. But, existing technologies can turn only 5–7% of heat energy into electricity. So, building a better thermoelectric totally depends on finding materials that conduct electricity, but not heat. Recently, some scientists at Northwestern University have created a new material from lead telluride and believes that the material is able to convert waste heat to electricity.

Multitasking Diminish Focus And Productivity, Research Shows

Multitasking Diminish Focus And Productivity, Research Shows

Today’s corporate snobs are always busy doing multiple things simultaneously, aka multitasking. But, are we really that productive by taking on multiple things at the same time? Research says, no. Human brain can divide resources easily and equally for two tasks, but it faces difficulty while doing more than two tasks at a time. That means, the more we delve into multitasking, the less productive we become. The human brain is incapable of performing numerous tasks without memory and productivity loss.

Hopeless Baby Comprehends Life’s Realities Within Six Days

Hopeless Baby Comprehends Life’s Realities Within Six Days

We have been told, times and again, of the rapid technological development and the affects it has on our lives. With everything speeding up, thanks to the dual and quad culture, it seems that the newborn babies are also being influenced. This is manifest in a singular newborn infant who has been able to conclude that we, as a race, are hopeless, within the first six days of his life.
