  • China Makes Working “StarTrek” EM Drive

Chinese Scientists say they’re already testing it in orbit aboard the Tiangong-2 space laboratory. The radical, fuel-free Em Propulsion Drive recently stirred up controversy after a paper published by a team of NASA researchers showed that they had successfully tested the technology.


  • Fast Radio Bursts Could Be a Sign of Alien Civilizations

The origin of so-called ‘Fast Radio Bursts’ has remained a cosmic mystery since first detected in 2007. But while explanations have included phenomena such as colliding black holes and dark matter-induced collapse of pulsars, a new theory suggests that FRBs could, perhaps, be a sign of intelligent alien life.


  • Water Mapped Beneath Surface of Ceres

The dwarf planet Ceres has more hydrogen beneath its surface near the poles, indicating a subsurface layer of ice mixed with the rock.


  • Is ‘Baltic Sea Anomaly’ a Crashed UFO?

Bearing a striking resemblance to the Star Wars Millennium Falcon, the Baltic Sea Anomaly appears to be formed of pieces of angular metal—prompting speculation that it is a crashed UFO.


  • ‘Walled Cities’ Spotted in Mars Images?

  • Killing Bacteria Quickly with Gold and Light

Scientists have found a way to rapidly kill E. coli and other bacteria using nanoporous gold disks and light. Instead of traditional sterilization methods, requiring boiling water or dry-heat ovens that take minutes to an hour, this technique accomplishes the task in seconds.


  • What Caused Earth’s Climate to Change Thousands of Years Ago?

Two new studies refute the hypothesis that one or more comets/bolides struck North America approximately 12,900 years ago triggering rapid climate change and the start of the Younger Dryas period.
