15 Recent Science Discoveries You Wont Believe
 
08:39
15 amazing recent discoveries in the world of science and here they are from bionic contact lenses to reanimating dinosaur dna! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 7. New Human Species Biologists all over the world were intrigued upon hearing the 2015 discovery of a new species of human, Homo Naledi, allowing for an ever clearer picture of our ancient ancestry. The findings were unveiled deep in an underground cave in South Africa and is considered one of the greatest collection of human remains ever unearthed. So far, it is known that this species of human grew to an average height of 5 feet and had a brain no larger than an orange. The way the bones in the South African cave were arranged suggests that these human ancestors ritualistically buried their dead, giving scientists a glimpse into our cultural past. 6. Bionic Lens While still in the testing stage, the founder of Ocumetics Technology Corp may have stumbled upon a revolutionary technology that could augment the way humans perceive the world. A new bionic contact lens will give wearers an ability to see the world with stronger than 20/20 vision. Some subjects, who have already tried the lens themselves, claim that they not only see better than ever before but have identified a unique spectrum of colors unfamiliar to the unaided eye. Is this perhaps the first step in the direction of a new era of superhumans? 5. Harder Than Diamond Scientists may have recently discovered a substance harder than diamond, Q-carbon. What gives diamonds their excellent hardness are the chemical bonds that hold them together. The carbon in diamonds is held together by incredibly tight chemical bonds at the microscopic level, giving diamonds their prominent hardness. By the manipulation of carbon atoms, scientists were able to augment their chemical bonds, producing a material that is potentially 60 times harder than diamond. While this substance is still being experimented on, it is a potential prospect for the future of cheap, efficient technologies. 4. First Mammals Researchers from the University of Edinburgh have discovered an ancient species of mammals that survived the notorious extinction of the dinosaurs over 65 million years ago. The reason this find is so significant is that it gives us a glimpse at how mammals began to rule the world previously dominated by their cold-blooded counterparts. The mammal is thought to have been a plant-eater closely resembling a modern beaver. Once the dinosaurs were eliminated these beaver-like creatures began to flourish, given that they were no longer victims of dinosaur predators. Because these little guys were able to withstand the destruction that wrecked havoc on the dinosaurs, an array of mammals, including our ancestors, were finally able to leave their mark on the world. 3. Whale Gene Mapping Gene mapping is starting to look less like a theoretical nicety and more like an applied science with this new aquatic discovery. Scientists have finally discovered why Bowhead Whales are able to live to 200 years old by remapping their entire genome. By comparing the genome of Bowhead Whales with the genome of other mammals with a less impressive lifespan, scientists were able to point out marked differences. Bowhead longevity is due to its genes’ effectiveness in repairing gene deterioration, which is the cause of cancer and other ailments known to cut human life short. By further studying this animal’s genes, scientists may finally be able to restore our own faulty genetic system, substantially lengthening our lives. 2. Second Earth NASA has recently confirmed their discovery of a possible second Earth. Kepler-452b orbits its sun in what scientists call the “Goldilocks Zone,” which is the habitable region in space, not too far or close to the sun, necessary for the possibility of life to flourish. The new planet appears to have a rocky surface as well as liquid water, which is another key ingredient for life to subsist. Although not much is known about if there is life beyond Earth, it makes sense to take notice of planets similar to our own. 1. Animal Re-animation Scientists have always been intrigued by the prospect of re-animating creatures that have been extinct for many years. While bringing a dinosaur back to life would be kind of cool, bringing a Wooly Mammoth back to life would be just as cool, and that is just what scientists are trying to do. Because Wooly Mammoths and Saber-Toothed Tigers have only been extinct for tens of thousands of years, unlike the millions of years dinosaurs have been extinct, intact DNA samples are much easier to find. Scientists believe it is possible to recreate these extinct beasts by cloning them with DNA and tissue samples, which have been found, over the years, preserved in ice.

7 Recent Scientific Discoveries Nobody's Talking About
 
08:57
Everyone is always talking about technological advancements and science constantly speeding up with each year. But why don’t we know how dinosaurs went extinct or if there was ever life on Mars? And what about space travel, hoverboards, and flying cars?! Ok, we’re not there yet, but here are some other recent discoveries that bring us closer to a bright future!

This slate has tons of fish fossils, proving that the ocean was devastated by this strike. - Mars had multiple wet periods, the last one ending some 1 billion years ago. While these periods were active, Mars had rivers much wider than those on Earth, and their flow was constant for a span of over 4 billion years. - We now have ourselves a completely new orca species. At the moment, they’re called “type D” orcas. They’re pretty similar to their more famous cousins. But they have some distinct features, like a much more rounded head, smaller white eyepatches, and an overall smaller body size. - Little patches of coral grow 25 times faster than corals normally do! With this advanced method, it’s possible to transplant these corals to their natural relatives and watch those reefs live again! - There is a new way to prevent global warming. It is based on using hot liquid metal and liquid electrolyte to catch carbon dioxide from the air and turn it into solid carbon flakes. - There’s a great probability that the medical community will find a way to deal with Type One diabetes in the near future. The scientists from the City of Hope have all kinds of ideas in mind as to how they can cure this problem, from cell transplantation to growing these cells from scratch. - A team of researchers led by Stefen Skare and Tim Sprenger from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden came up with the idea of mixing MRI tests with the technology used in much quicker scanning called Echo-Planar Imaging or EPI.

Check out the Most MYSTERIOUS Recent Discoveries By NASA! From strange unexplained planets found in space to possible life on mars, this top 10 list of unsolved mysteries has some of the coolest things discovered by NASA in recent years!

Water on Mars Many books, TV shows, and movies have fantasized about colonizing the planet Mars. The only problem is that Mars is not a place that can sustain life in its current state, and just as bad, it does not have any water...or so we thought. In 2018, scans from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter discovered that formations on the planet were actually caused by water that is still there right now. 8. Multiple "Earths" In February 2017, NASA discovered that there might be 7 Earth-like planets orbiting a dwarf star called TRAPPIST-1. In fact, all seven of these planets were found in the same galaxy, which is a very rare thing indeed. 7. Liquid on Titan Saturn has 53 moons that have been named by scientists, and more could actually be named in the future. One of the most popular of these moons is the one known as Titan. It's been the source of much research, and has even been home to an alien race in the Marvel Comics Universe. During a scan by the Cassini Space Probe of NASA, they found that in certain gorges and canyons of Titan, there are actually pools of liquid, specifically hydrocarbons. 6. Comet Soup In 2005, NASA sent their Deep Impact spacecraft into a comet called Tempel 1. If you're curious as to why they would destroy one of their craft by crashing it into a comet on purpose, it is because they wanted to analyze the content and particles that were released from the impact. 5. Saturn's Rings The Rings of Saturn are not only the most defining features of the planet, but also one of the most recognizable things in all of our solar system. Strangely enough NASA speculates that the rings are "dying". 4. Jupiter's Orbit NASA has long tried to get a spacecraft into Jupiter's orbit. But because of conditions in the planet's atmosphere, it's been a very difficult task. Not to mention, getting a craft near the planet in terms of its position in space is also hard. Yet, on July 4th, 2016, the Juno became the first spacecraft to make it into Jupiter's orbit, which by NASA's own admission was one of the hardest things they've ever done. 3. Supermassive Black Hole The Hubble Space Telescope is one of NASA's biggest tools in regards to searching deep space for new discoveries, and in February of 2016, the telescope took a picture of a galaxy and found a black hole of astonishing size. 2. Ice Volcanoes On Earth, volcanoes spew fire, ash, soot, and smoke, but on the dwarf planet (a planet that never matured to full size) called Ceres, the volcanoes ice! This was discovered by NASA via their Dawn Spacecraft in 2015, which was observing Ceres (which orbits between Mars and Jupiter). 1. Reaching Ultima Thule 4 billion miles away from Earth, there is an object known as Ultima Thule. This "celestial body" is actually two round objects made of an unknown composition that are actually fused together. NASA has released the first up-close stereo images of this celestial body via the New Horizons spacecraft, making this the most distant object that a spacecraft from Earth has ever explored.

15 Accidental Inventions You Can't Imagine Your Life Without
 
11:40
Some of the greatest inventions we use every day were created by accident. From the microwave to ice-cream cones, the accidental inventions on this list completely changed our way of life. Sometimes things don’t go according to plan. But every now and then, it’s for the better! American chemist Roy J. Plunkett was doing research for the company Dupont to make fridges safer and invented a strange substance that was non-reactive, non-stick, and resistant to extreme temperatures. We all know it as Teflon. John Pemberton was a pharmacist trying to find a way to get rid of headaches. He came up with a simple recipe consisting of two ingredients: coca leaves and cola nuts combined into a syrup. It was later mixed with soda by accident and became a huge hit. Dr. Spencer Silver, a chemist for 3M Company, was trying to create a super strong adhesive but what he got instead was a “low-tack” yet high-quality adhesive only strong enough to hold up a piece of paper but durable enough to be relocated multiple times without losing its stick. We all know and love it as Post-it notes today. The first antidepressant was discovered in 1957 and was supposed to be a cure for tuberculosis. Wilhelm Roentgen unintentionally put his hand in front of an electron-beam tube back in 1895 and noticed that the radiation passed through solid objects and body parts leaving a shadow. And now we have x-ray imaging! #inventions #discoveries TIMESTAMPS Matches 0:41 Teflon 1:33 Potato chips 2:25 Ice-cream cones 3:16 Coca Cola 4:03 Post-It notes 4:37 Safety glass 5:26 Vulcanized rubber 5:57 Plastic 6:50 Antidepressants 7:34 Implantable pacemaker 8:00 Antibiotics 8:28 X-rays 9:09 Superglue 9:42 Microwave oven 10:20 SUMMARY -British pharmacist John Walker noticed that one of the sticks he used to mix the chemicals had some substance on it that caught fire easily. -American chemist Roy J.

Scientists Finally Discovered the Truth About Easter Island
 
10:09
We all know that the easter island heads have bodies – that’s not a mystery at all. But how did the easter island population build hundreds of statues? Scientists have recently solved this mystery and discovered where these people disappeared to and why. For many decades, people's minds have been occupied with the mystery of Easter Island. A remote piece of volcanic soil, far away in the Pacific Ocean... But our planet hosts thousands of such lonely islands, what is so particular about this one? The mystery is concealed not in the island itself but giant stone statues covering it. Who created the world-famous huge stone heads? Did they serve any specific purpose? Where did their creators arrive from and where did they disappear? Well, it seems the answer is finally just around the corner! #easterisland #mystery #easterislandheads TIMESTAMPS What do we know about Easter Island? 1:05 Amazing facts about Easter Island 2:18 How have the statues been moved around the island? 5:25 How could create Easter Island monuments? 7:24 What happened to people on Easter Island? 8:09 SUMMARY - Where is Easter Island located? Rapa Nui (which is the name given to Easter Island by its first inhabitants) is the territory of Chile and is situated in the southern Pacific Ocean. And it is so, so far that you can easily consider it one of the most distant places on the world's map. It lies 1,200 miles away from Pitcairn, which is its closest neighbor. - What's the main secret of the statues? Most statues (834 out of 887) were carved from the material called tuff which is, in fact, compressed volcanic ash. Curiously, all the statues except one group face inland. It means their backs are turned to the ocean. Perhaps the reason for that was the belief that the statues were the protectors of the villagers that's why they overlooked the settlement. The only statues not fitting into this pattern can be found at Ahu Akivi, a sacred place for the people of Rapa Nui. - Theories about how the statues had been moved. One of the most popular ones among the lovers of mysteries was the belief that the statues had been created and moved by aliens. But even if you like this theory, we are sorry to debunk it. The stone the statues were built from originates from the island itself. The birthplace of most of the material was an extinct volcano situated in the north-east of Easter Island and not another planet. - A new study about the island. A new study has been conducted recently to specify the maximum number of the inhabitants in the heyday of the island's civilization. The results arrived, and they were quite unexpected. It turned out that as many as 17 and a half thousand people could comfortably live on the island. At least 19 percent of the land could be covered with the fields of sweet potatoes that used to be the main source of food for the population. What is more, the islanders consumed quite a lot of seafood and fish. - Why did people on Easter Island disappear? At first, it was believed that the reason for such a decrease of the population was an ecocide. The natives cut out large forests and palm trees making spare room for moving the statues around as well as agriculture. They thought the trees were going to grow back fast enough. It was a misleading concept. The deterioration of the environment resulted in hunger. And this, in turn, led to wars and cannibalism. Nowadays, however, such a theory has been proven wrong. First of all, Rapa Nui inhabitants seemed to be very talented agricultural engineers. They deliberately fertilized the fields with the volcanic rock. In fact, another research has shown that people had been living on the island for many centuries. And the population only started to decrease when Europeans began visiting.

7 Mysterious Discoveries Scientists Can't Explain
 
12:22
There are amazing discoveries that made the smartest scientists scratch their heads for years. These experts spend their whole lives searching for answers to some of the world’s biggest mysteries. Yet some of their findings defy logic and are still waiting to be solved. TIMESTAMPS: The Maine Penny 1:20 Gold Spirals 2:49 Alaska Artifact 3:59 Rujm el-Hiri 5:14 Mohenjo-Daro 5:56 Longyou Caves 8:51 Swimming Reindeer 1:23 #mysteriousdiscoveries #amazingdiscoveries Music by Epidemic Sound  https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - The coin was made between 1605 and 1093 during the reign of King Olaf III. But how did a silver Norse coin, the only Norse artifact discovered at the site, travel all the way to Maine? - Flemming and other researchers assumed that these gold spirals were part of a priest-king’s costume or headwear, which would have been worn during ritual sun ceremonies. - The buckle-like object had been cast in a mold with a small leather ring attached to the bar, and it was about 2” by 1”. Thanks to its leather material, the researchers were able to estimate how old the object is through radiocarbon analysis: it’s 1,500 years old. - Rujim el-Hiri is another remnant of the Bronze Age, and it dates back to an estimated 3000 to 2700 BCE. The megalithic structure is located in Golan Heights and is made from approximately 44,000 tons of basalt stones. - Mohenjo-Daro can rival the greatness of ancient Rome, though it didn’t have a “central seat of government or evidence of a king or queen” according to a National Geographic article. - The Longyou Caves in Zhejiang province, China, aren’t your ordinary caves with cavernous passages, stalagmites, and stalactites. The 2,000-year-old man-made caves consist of 36 grottoes covering approximately 32,000 sq ft. - The Swimming Reindeer is made from the tip of a mammoth tusk that is 8” long. The sculptor possessed extraordinary creativity and skill: it was beautifully crafted with great detail using only stone tools.

Breakthrough discovery in astronomy: first ever image of a black hole
 
52:37
On 10 April 2019 at 15:00 CEST (Brussels time) the European Commission presented a ground-breaking discovery by Event Horizon Telescope - an international scientific collaboration aiming to capture the first image of a black hole by creating a virtual Earth-sized telescope. EU-funded researchers play a key role in the project. Black holes are extremely compressed cosmic objects, containing incredible amounts of mass within a tiny region. Their presence affects their surroundings in extreme ways, by warping spacetime and super-heating any material falling into it. The captured image reveals the black hole at the centre of Messier 87, a massive galaxy in the constellation of Virgo. This black hole is located 55 million light-years from Earth and has a mass 6.5-billion times larger than our sun. Six press conferences around the world took place simultaneously. In Europe, Commissioner Moedas and lead scientists funded by the European Research Council held a press conference in Brussels to unveil the discovery. Panelists: - Carlos Moedas, European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation - Prof. Anton Zensus, Director at Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie, Bonn, Germany (Chair of the EHT Collaboration Board) - Prof. Heino Falcke, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands (Chair of the EHT Science Council) - Dr Monika Mościbrodzka, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands (EHT Working Group Coordinator) - Prof. Luciano Rezzolla, Goethe Universität, Frankfurt, Germany (EHT Board Member) - Prof. Eduardo Ros, Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie, Bonn, Germany, (EHT Board Secretary) EC press release: https://europa.eu/!nr97rr Scientific press release by EHT: https://blackholecam.org/erc_bhc_pr-2/ More insights by Jonathan O’Callaghan's article: https://europa.eu/!mb77wB Behind the scene with the black hole scientists: https://europa.eu/!xx46nf #EHTBlackHole #BlackHoleDay #RealBlackHole #BlackHoles

Jonathan Wells Presents His Latest Book Zombie Science
 
53:10
In his new book Zombie Science, biologist Jonathan Wells asks a simple question: If the icons of evolution were just innocent textbook errors, why do so many of them still persist? Wells gave a presentation about Zombie Science at the book's national launch party recently in Seattle. (see more about the presentation here https://evolutionnews.org/2017/06/jonathan-wells-presents-zombie-science-at-national-book-launch/) Watch as Wells explores a new wave of icons walking the halls of science while putting some familiar corpses back in the grave. New topics include DNA, the human eye, vestigial organs, antibiotic resistance, and cancer. Looking past the current zombie outbreak, Wells offers a hopeful vision of science free from the clutches of materialist dogma. Wells himself is something of an iconoclast, railing against the tyranny of science’s Darwin-only advocates. His first book, Icons of Evolution, became an international hit by dismantling the outdated and underwhelming “proofs” of evolution that have littered textbooks for decades. For doing so, he was attacked by Darwin’s defenders and became one of the most hated figures of the intelligent design movement.

12 Scientific Discoveries That'll Send Chills Down Your Spine
 
12:00
Let's find out whether such astounding progress is good and if this “science of the future” can actually come back and bite us later. Did you know that there's a strong chance of a remote control for the body and brain being invented? With each passing day, science continues to move forward. It keeps expanding the boundaries of human capabilities to such an extent, that it seems like it's just a matter of time until we see something we could've imagined only in the boldest sci-fi flicks! TIMESTAMPS Transplantation of a human head 1:16 Selective amnesia 2:14 Water on Mars 2:58 A child from three parents 3:50 Organs grown in a lab 4:39 “Plastic” diseases 5:33 Nanorobots inside people 6:24 There are one billion planets that look like the Earth 7:20 3-D bioprinter that can print human skin 8:10 Bacteria evolving faster than we find cures for them 9:03 Mysterious Universe 9:56 Remote control for the brain 10:42 SUMMARY - Sergio Canavero, a neurosurgeon from Italy, is planning to take on a divine endeavor – bringing people back from the dead! The Italian scientist is sure that successful transplantation of a human head is a fairly realistic possibility. - Would you like to get rid of all your phobias, worries, bad memories and fears? Well, lucky for you, scientists are now ready to do just that and rid your brain of all the negative thoughts and flashbacks without affecting the important parts of your life's history. All this can be done by combining brain scanning technologies and artificial intelligence. - In 2016 NASA made an exciting announcement – there are some tiny frozen seas on Mars! In fact, scientists don't exclude the likelihood that the water there may flow underground. And where there’s water, there’s the possibility of life, right? - In 2016 a baby boy was born using a new and innovative technique that incorporates DNA from not two but three people! This scientific sensation allowed the baby’s parents to conceive a perfectly healthy newborn, despite the fact that the mother carries genes of Leigh syndrome, which is a fatal disorder that affects the central nervous system. - Scientists at The Ohio State University (go Buckeyes!) have spent nearly 15 weeks in the lab growing a human brain. The final product of this serious lab work has the same developmental level as a nine-week-old fetus! - As it turns out, we consume loads of poisonous chemicals every day without even realizing it. Plastic drink containers and bottles can lead to all sorts of health problems. Among them are uterine cancer, breast cancer, heart attack, diabetes, and that's just a drop in the bucket of the whole list of possible “surprises” you may end up with. - Teeny-tiny bots can store and transport remedies to sick and ailing parts in your body. Amazingly enough, these little babies can also detect diseased cells on their own! - Two years ago NASA came to the conclusion that there are nearly one billion planets that are similar to the Earth. And we’re talking about in our galaxy alone. Just imagine what could be outside of it! So, basically, what it means is that there are billions of planets where intelligent life could possibly live. - Spanish scientists have presented a prototype of a bioprinter that can print totally functional human skin! This skin can be used for transplantation, cosmetics testing, and really any type of medical experimentation. - Even though medicine continues to advance forward as quickly as it can with all its new and effective antibiotics and vaccines, it turns out that it isn’t moving fast enough. Unfortunately, some strains of bacteria are always a couple of steps ahead of us. - Such important things as dark matter and dark energy are completely unexplored to this day. The only thing astronomers are sure of is that all of these dark parts are the main causes for the expansion of the universe. - In 1923 scientists learned to control the brain's neurons, which allowed them to control movements and manipulate emotions and feelings. Sounds kind of dark, right? And that's not all.

10 Terrifying Places Science Still Can't Explain
 
13:01
How to Learn More about the Earth. The scientific community has made great strides in discovering a lot about the planet we call home. Yet there’s still so much we don’t know! In this video, we’ll tell you about 10 of the most mysterious and bewildering places on Earth that even scientists can’t explain! Magnetic Hill, Skeleton Lake, Boiling River and a Dancing Forest. Plus, some mysterious waters where ships disappear. TIMESTAMPS Skeleton Lake 0:56 The Hessdalen Lights 1:53 Lake Anjikuni 2:41 The Devil's Sea 3:43 The Lake Michigan Triangle 4:44 Magnetic Hill 6:11 The Devil's Kettle 6:57 The Patomskiy Crater 7:57 The Boiling River 9:55 The Dancing Forest 11:16 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -Every year when the snow and frozen water melt, Roopkund Lake in the Himalayas reveals 300 skeletons dumped in it. -The Hessdalen Lights occasionally turn yellowish or reddish, and nobody knows what makes them change color. -Canadian fur trapper Joe Labelle came to a village located on the shore of Lake Anjikuni to find it completely deserted. -Some folks call the Devil's Sea the Pacific Bermuda Triangle since ships and planes tend to disappear there with the same regularity as its North Atlantic counterpart. -The Lake Michigan Triangle has been gaining its notorious reputation since 1891 when a ship disappeared in its waters, along with its crew of seven sailors. -If you turn off the engine of your car and leave it in neutral on the Magnetic Hill, your vehicle will start climbing ahead, possibly at a speed of 12 miles per hour. -About a mile before the river empties into Lake Superior, a rocky outcrop splits it in two. And while the eastern flow drops 50 feet down and keeps flowing into the lake, the western part travels 10 feet down into a giant hole... and vanishes. -Located in Siberia, the Patomskiy Crater is described as a mound with a perfectly circular shape. It’s as big as a 25-story building, sits right in the middle of a wooded area with its top chopped off, and presents quite a sight. -The Boling River really is steaming hot. At a temperature of 187°F, it’s not exactly boiling, but it’s pretty close. -Located on the thin Curonian Spit that divides the Baltic Sea from the Curonian Lagoon is one of the strangest places on Earth. The pine trees in this forest have shockingly unusual shapes: they twist in spirals and circles along the ground.

Amazing Scientific Discoveries Found Trapped in Ice
 
11:00
Over time, scientists have found plenty of things in ice, frozen in time. Some of the things that were found were truly baffling. Here are 42 amazing scientific discoveries found trapped in ice. This lighthouse in Michigan froze due to the frigid temperatures. Seeing the staircase frozen in ice is incredible. If there were anyone in the area that day, they would have perished in such frigid temperatures. Mammoth brains were found in the permafrost of the Laptev Sea coast. They are believed to be over 39,000 years old. Researchers estimate that the brains were of a young mammoth, between six to nine years old. The temperatures were so cold that this fox froze right where he stood. He was found by a hunter in a German lake. It is expected to be displayed as an arctic appendage in a German hotel. Some alligators can survive in frigid and icy waters. This alligator was photographed during its frozen state during temporary hibernation. In 1952, a military plane heading to Anchorage, Alaska crashed into a glacier. The crash killed 41 passengers and 11 crew members. The area was too dangerous for rescue workers to retrieve the wreckage. It took 50 years before they were able to search for the wreckage. When the water freezes, it does so quickly. This fish was eating another fish when the waters froze. He never even got to finish his meal. The nodosaur lived 110 million years ago. This dinosaur grew spikes of armor for protection. It was caught in the ice and was very well preserved when it was discovered. Many birds dive into the water quickly looking for food. These birds didn't know how cold the water was, and they dove into the water too deep and froze instantly. Scientists discovered this ice-age puppy that is believed to be 12,460-years-old. It was found deep in the Siberian tundra. They couldn't believe how well-preserved the animal was. A copperhead arrow was found in the ice. It looked like a modern-day fishing hook. Its discovery gave researchers more insight into the technology used many years ago. Traces of Vikings were found in Juvfonna, Norway. Frozen in ice were sticks, bows, arrows, and pieces of leather shoes. They also found reindeer traps. It is believed that these items are around 3,400-years-old. This mysterious river in Antarctica looks like a frozen, blood-red stream. It is actually iron-rich water. It is the same element that makes Mars red. Glaciers tend to freeze up everything in their paths. This was once a forest, but when it froze over, it became frozen in time. The Incas often offered up human sacrifices at the highest peak of the Andes Mountains. In 1954, the frozen body of a sacrifice named Juanita was found. The Incas also paid homage to the Sun God Inti. A human sacrifice was found that was so intact that scientists were able to determine his blood type, his age, and his status in society. The temperatures are so cold in the Arctic that even bacteria can freeze immediately. When found, they are incredibly well preserved. During World War I, many battles were fought in the Andes. Those who weren't shot and killed froze to death. Their bodies were preserved in blocks of ice. Scientists found the body of a 300-year-old man who was believed to be an ancestor to the First Nations people. They think he lost his life when he fell into a glacier. A woolly mammoth was found frozen in a block of ice in Siberia. It is believed to be 39,000 years old. Scientists say that it is the most finely preserved specimen ever found. Its blood and muscle tissue were still intact. In Yellowstone, scientists didn't find any signs of humans, but they did find a 10,300-year-old spear that was frozen in time. Otzi Man is one of the most famous humans ever to be found in the snow. He is 5,300 years old and was found in the Alps between Austria and Italy. He was so well preserved that scientists could tell that he suffered from gum disease, gallstones, worn joints, hardened arteries, Lyme disease, and parasitic worms. He had a spear in his shoulder, which was what killed him. The frozen body of a 10,000-year-old Woolly rhino was found in the coldest regions of northern Russia. It was exceptionally well-preserved, and it still had fur on its body. These tigers died out 10,000 years ago. It is believed that they died out due to global heating and human hunting. Scientists recovered one off the coast of the UK that weighed 881-pounds. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to Facts Verse: http://bit.ly/FactsVerse ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/factsverse/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/factsverse/ Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/factsverse6030/ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.factsverse.com

James Tour: The Mystery of the Origin of Life
 
58:02
UPDATE: This lecture has obviously hit a nerve. For Prof. Tour's response to his critics, see http://www.jmtour.com/wp-content/uploads/John-West-on-Szostak-Article.pdf. Tour in his response apologizes for using the word "lying" with regard to Jack Szostak, but he goes on to explain in detail why his substantive criticisms of Szostak's article were correct. To read the criticisms leveled at Tour, see https://stonesnbones.blogspot.com/2019/04/normal-0-false-false-false-en-us-x-none.html. Dr. Tour is one of the world’s top synthetic organic chemists. He has authored 680 scientific publications and holds more than 120 patents (here is a partial list). In 2014, Thomson Reuters named him one of “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds,” and in 2018 Clarivate Analytics recognized him as one of the world’s most highly cited researchers. Tour is also fearless. He joined more than a thousand other scientists in signing the “Scientific Dissent from Darwinism.” More recently, he has become a thorn in the side of the origin of life research community, offering blunt assessments of the current state of origin of life research.

Latest Science Discovery (No. 7): Protein Causes Over 33% Fat Reduction in Obese Mice
 
00:59
A research team lead by Georgetown University biomedical researchers has made a startling discovery using mouse models. To learn more, check out this video and share it with your network today. Researchers: Elena Tassi, Khalid A. Garman, Marcel O. Schmidt, Xiaoting Ma, Khaled W. Kabbara, Aykut Uren, York Tomita, Regina Goetz, Moosa Mohammadi, Christopher S. Wilcox, Anna T. Riegel, Mattias Carlstrom, and Anton Wellstein The forced expression of a protein in a laboratory strain of obese mice showed a remarkable reduction of their fat mass The protein FGFBP3 (BP3) modulates fat and glucose metabolism in mouse models of metabolic syndrome In obese mice, the expression of exogenous BP3 reduced hyperglycemia, hepatosteatosis, and weight gain The research team concluded that BP3 could be used to reverse the pathology associated with metabolic syndrome According to Dr. Anton Wellstein, eight BP3 treatments over 18 days caused over 33% fat reduction in obese mice The BP3 protein treatment also reduced blood sugar in obese mice to a significant extent Further studies would be required to assess the BP3 effect on human subjects Publication link: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-018-34238-5 Need a professionally created video for promoting your service, product, or event?

Discovery-based methodologies are often viewed in contrast to traditional scientific practice, where hypotheses are formed before close examination of experimental data. However, from a philosophical perspective where all or most of the observable "low hanging fruit" has already been plucked, examining the phenomenological world more closely than the senses alone (even augmented senses, e.g. via microscopes, telescopes, bifocals etc.) opens a new source of knowledge for hypothesis formation. This process is also known as inductive reasoning or the use of specific observations to make generalizations. Data mining is the most common tool used in discovery science, and is applied to data from diverse fields of study such as DNA analysis, climate modeling, nuclear reaction modeling, and others. The use of data mining in discovery science follows a general trend of increasing use of computers and computational theory in all fields of science. Further following this trend, the cutting edge of data mining employs specialized machine learning algorithms for automated hypothesis forming and automated theorem proving.

Stephen Meyer: God and the Origin of the Universe

According to a nationwide survey, more than two-thirds of atheists and one-third of agnostics believe that “the findings of science make the existence of God less probable,” while nearly half of self-identified theists believe “the findings of science are neutral with regard to the existence of God.” But what if there is another option? What if the discoveries of science actually lend support to belief in God?

Archaeological Discoveries Proving GIANTS exist
 
10:18
There have been other species of human on this earth, some smaller and some bigger, but what about a human 2, 3 or maybe even 4 times larger than the average person? Check out these discoveries of giant footprints and skeletons that may prove giants really do exist! China’s Giant Footprint In August of 2016, an amazing and unexplainable discovery was made in Guizhou, China. During a hike, photographers stumbled upon a series of marks in the ground that looked eerily similar to the prints made by a human walking barefoot. Nearly two feet long and indented nearly three centimeters into the ground, the massive prints likely belong to someone who is over thirteen feet tall, according to researchers’ estimates. Many dismiss the prints as a hoax, which is understandable except for the fact that this is not the first time such prints have been discovered. In 1912, a four foot long print was unearthed in South Africa that was dated to be over two hundred million years old, suggesting an ancient civilization of giants. This is backed up by countless tales from Norse, Indian, Mayan, Aztec, Incan, and Greek lore, as well as the Bible. Most amazingly, the 1912 discovery’s creator had to have been over twenty seven feet tall to leave such a print behind, making the mere thirteen feet of the Chinese discovery seem much more feasible by comparison. Phillips Excavation A news article from 1912 details the excavation of a burial mound completed by the Phillips brothers at Lake Declan in Wisconsin. According to the New York Times, on May 4, eighteen giant skeletons that were carefully buried in charcoal and baked clay were uncovered from a presumed burial mound. The bones were said to be, “monkey-like” in many ways, such as straight sloping eye sockets and a nasal placement higher than that of a human, but were obviously human bones. Many other alleged “giant” bones have been found in Wisconsin, with the New York Times also reporting skeletons found by a Smithsonian researcher in 1881 and one nine foot skeleton found in Maple Creek years later in 1897. Certainly such repeated results are at least some cause for interest and concern. Ecuadorian Giant Remains In 1964, several Ecuadorian locals called upon Father Carlos Vaca, a priest who worked with the local hospitals, after uncovering several strange bones in a mountainous area. After inspecting them, he determined they were likely human despite being incredibly large. The bones were taken to Austrian artifact researcher Klaus Dona, who allowed several experts to view the bones. They all came to the same conclusion: they likely belonged to a human who, based upon estimates, would have been over 25 feet tall. No DNA could be pulled from the bones during examination, leading the researchers to believe them to be over ten thousand years old, at the least. Dona also claims that the area where the bones were found has been called, “the cemetery of the giants” by those local to the area, though this has not been proven to be true. Found At Varna This particular discovery actually took place much more recently in Varna, Bulgaria. You see, Varna used to be the ancient Greek city of Odessos, which is known having a lot of mythology that talks about and has images of giants. So it came as almost no surprise in January of 2015 that an incredibly large human skeleton was discovered. The skeleton appeared to placed very delicately with its hands on its waist and it’s head facing specifically to the East. The only issue with this discovery is that no height has actually been publicly confirmed, giving suspicion to its legitamacy. Some people have speculated that the man may have simply been of above average height and was considered a spectacle when they were alive in Ancient Greece, but others believe this was a real giant that was spoken of as mythology. Lovelock Cave In 1911, two Nevada miners named David Hart and James Pugh took interest in the large deposits of bat feces, also known as guano, which they planned to sell for use in making gunpowder. During their digging, the two men uncovered some incredible archaeological finds and called upon Alfred Kroeber, the founder of the Anthropology Department at the University of California. Several normal sized mummies were uncovered, as well as a few who were, amazingly, over eight to ten feet tall. Some sandals were also found that measured in at around thirty eight centimeters long, along with many giant sized handprints embedded into the cave walls. Interestingly, the local Paiute Native American tribe spoke in lore of red haired, white skinned giants called Si-Te-Cha living in the Lovelock cave system where the mummies were discovered.

Things like déjà vu, the placebo effect and many other phenomena still make scientists scratch their heads and wonder what’s going on. + + + + + + + + Previous Episode: Your House Isn’t Haunted: Here’s What The Science Says: https://youtu.be/vheG7i-R7zk?list=PLwwOk5fvpuuIg5MD8vNm6HlqXIuTDqoDD + + + + + + + + Sources: The Nature Of Deja Vu: http://www.theparanormalsociety.org/library/articles/metaphysics-parapsychology/795-the-nature-of-deja-vu “The term déjà vu comes from the French and means, literally, "already seen." Those who have experienced the feeling describe it as an overwhelming sense of familiarity with something that shouldn't be familiar at all." Placebos Work Even if You Know They’re Fake: But How?: http://healthland.time.com/2010/12/27/placebos-work-even-if-you-know-theyre-fake-but-how/ “Physicians have long believed that some form of deception is essential to the placebo effect: after all, if you tell people that you’re giving them a fake drug, why would they respond by getting better?" The Dancing Plague of 1518: http://mentalfloss.com/article/28371/dancing-plague-1518 “Perhaps the very first authentic rave, the Dancing Plague of 1518 is one of the most bizarre incidents you'll ever read about. It all started, well, back in the summer of 1518 in Strasbourg, France." Easter Island: http://travel.nationalgeographic.com/travel/world-heritage/easter-island/ “Rapa Nui’s mysterious moai statues stand in silence but speak volumes about the achievements of their creators.

Why Real-life Ghost Hunters Hate “Ghost Hunters”: http://www.salon.com/2010/10/30/ghost_hunters/ “In butchered Italian, Nick Groff tells the ghosts of Poveglia, a creepy island off the coast of Venice, Italy, to “use his energy.” A faint rap is heard. Zak Bagans, his fellow ghost hunter, hunches over and grabs his stomach." Do Scientists Fear the Paranormal?: http://news.discovery.com/human/psychology/do-scientists-fear-the-paranormal-130115.htm “The question has been asked for decades: why haven’t psychic powers been proven yet? Psychics have been studied for decades, both in and out of the laboratory, yet the scientific community (and the public at large) remains unconvinced." What Skepticism Reveals About Science: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-skepticism-reveals/ “The postmodernist belief in the relativism of truth, coupled to the clicker culture of mass media where attention spans are measured in New York minutes, leaves us with a bewildering array of truth claims packaged in infotainment units." Freeman Dyson, Global Warming, ESP And The Fun Of Being “Bunkrapt": http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/cross-check/freeman-dyson-global-warming-esp-and-the-fun-of-being-bunkrapt/ “Should a scientist who believes in extrasensory perception—the ability to read minds, intuit the future and so on—be taken seriously?"

Discovery Program | Wikipedia audio article
 
24:39
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: Discovery Program Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ You can upload your own Wikipedia articles through: https://github.com/nodef/wikipedia-tts "The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing." - Socrates SUMMARY ======= NASA's Discovery Program is a series of lower-cost (as compared to New Frontiers or Flagship Programs), highly focused American scientific space missions that are exploring the Solar System. It was founded in 1992 to implement then-NASA Administrator Daniel S. Goldin's vision of "faster, better, cheaper" planetary missions. Discovery missions differ from traditional NASA missions where targets and objectives are pre-specified. Instead, these cost-capped missions are proposed and led by a scientist called the Principal Investigator (PI). Proposing teams may include people from industry, small businesses, government laboratories, and universities. Proposals are selected through a competitive peer review process. All of the completed Discovery missions are accomplishing ground-breaking science and adding significantly to the body of knowledge about the Solar System. NASA also accepts proposals for competitively selected Discovery Program Missions of Opportunity. This provides opportunities to participate in non-NASA missions by providing funding for a science instrument or hardware components of a science instrument or to re-purpose an existing NASA spacecraft. These opportunities are currently offered through NASA's Stand Alone Mission of Opportunity program. On January 4, 2017 NASA announced that the next Discovery mission selection included the double-selection of ''Lucy'', to visit several asteroids and Trojans, and ''Psyche'', to visit the metal asteroid Psyche, as the thirteenth and fourteenth Discovery missions, respectively.
