CHINA LAUNCHES NUCLEAR-POWERED ‘ARTIFICIAL SUN’: IS ‘ISAIAH’S PROPHECY COMING TO FRUITION’?

China recently turned on a huge nuclear fusion device patterned after the process that takes place inside the sun. The device generates ten times the heat of the sun and the scientists hope to double that within the next few years.On Friday, China powered up the HL-2M tokamak, a huge device that uses a powerful … Continue reading CHINA LAUNCHES NUCLEAR-POWERED ‘ARTIFICIAL SUN’: IS ‘ISAIAH’S PROPHECY COMING TO FRUITION’?

What is the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kpW9JcWxKq0 Ubiquitous, mobile supercomputing. Artificially-intelligent robots. Self-driving cars. Self-driving cars. Genetic editing. The evidence of dramatic change is all around us and it’s happening at exponential speed. Previous industrial revolutions liberated humankind from animal power, made mass production possible and brought digital capabilities to billions of people. This Fourth Industrial Revolution is, however, fundamentally different. … Continue reading What is the Fourth Industrial Revolution?

Brains of 3 People Have Been Successfully Connected, Enabling Them to Share Thoughts

Neuroscientists have successfully hooked up a three-way brain connection to allow three people to share their thoughts – and in this case, play a Tetris-style game. The team thinks this wild experiment could be scaled up to connect whole networks of people, and yes, it's as weird as it sounds......Read More   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYHnUaXJsR8

China’s Massive Particle Accelerator –“Could Create a Phase Transition That Rips the Very Fabric of Spacetime”

China is building a particle accelerator that will be twice as large and seven times as powerful as CERN’s LHC and astrophysicist, Martin Rees, famous for his contributions to black hole formation to extragalactic radio sources and the evolution of the universe, thinks that there’s a chance the colliders could cause a “catastrophe that engulfs … Continue reading China’s Massive Particle Accelerator –“Could Create a Phase Transition That Rips the Very Fabric of Spacetime”

Next step toward artificial reproduction violates human fundamentals, ethicist warns

Artificial human reproduction appears to be on the horizon with Japanese scientists’ claim to have created immature human eggs from stem cells, but the technique could result in power that would cross the bounds of ethics and serve as a “profound violation” of marriage and marital love, a bioethicist has warned. John Brehany, a Catholic bioethicist … Continue reading Next step toward artificial reproduction violates human fundamentals, ethicist warns

BrainNet Is Trying To Make Brain-To-Brain Communication A Reality

We’re used to read about brain-to-brain communication in comic books or Science Fiction stories but it seems that we’re getting closer to actually making it a part of our lives in the future. Andrea Stocco and his colleagues from the University of Washington in Seattle have been working on a set of tools that can ‘sense’ … Continue reading BrainNet Is Trying To Make Brain-To-Brain Communication A Reality

Scientists Receive Green Light to “Resurrect the Dead” Using Stem Cells

Health is a very complex thing, and that is because the body, we, are complex forms of life. For any particular medical problem, there are innumerable ways to treat it, and research can go in any direction to figure out how a treatment works. The realest, most intensive way of testing a treatment to see if … Continue reading Scientists Receive Green Light to “Resurrect the Dead” Using Stem Cells

Pig brains are kept alive OUTSIDE their bodies for the first time in a radical experiment that could allow humans to become immortal

Pig brains have been kept alive outside their bodies for the first time as part of a controversial new experiment. The brains of hundreds of pigs survived for up to 36 hours after the animals had been decapitated, researchers revealed. The radical experiments could pave the way for brain transplants and may one day allow humans to … Continue reading Pig brains are kept alive OUTSIDE their bodies for the first time in a radical experiment that could allow humans to become immortal
