Forget coronavirus, homoeopathy can’t cure anything. It’s a placebo, at best

A system of alternative medicine, homoeopathy courts deep popularity in India, so much so that many are known to believe that it’s an Indian system. According to the government, it’s the second most popular form of medicine in the country with as much as 10 per cent of the population relying on it. It claims to treat diseases for which allopathy, or Western medicine, currently offers no cure — from diabetes and psoriasis to polycystic ovary s........

Amber Fossil Shows Two Trapped Flies that Died while Mating 41 Million Years Ago

A recent discovery of a fossil in Victoria, Australia has revealed a pair of flies, which were engulfed by a blob of sticky amber while mating. The findings were recently published in the journal Scientific Reports. While in the middle of the act, the prehistoric flies got trapped in a gluey resin of the tree. The resin that hardened over the years, turned into a frozen amber. It is being estimated that the flies have remained that way for almost 41 million years now. ........

what will we do when diseases reach space

What will we do when diseases reach space?

The human immune system reacts differently in the microgravity environment of space than it does here on Earth, studies find. The immune system is disrupted, altering the way bodies react to infections. “The immune system is very complex, and several aspects of immunity remain uninvestigated during spaceflight. We now need to delve deeper into the immune system changes that happen in space, and also determine if immune changes during flight e........

Bahariya and Farafra: Egypt’s bizarre, desert landscape

Located in Egypt’s Western Desert, the Bahariya and Farafra depressions don’t even cover 1% of the Egyptian Sahara. Yet, they have some of the rarest landscapes and geological formations in the entire country. This is not the place where archaeologists come to find ancient tombs or hidden treasures; rather, this is a destination for dinosaurs fossils and remnants of other species that we have not seen for millions of years. ........

This worm-like creature is the first ancestor on the human and animal family tree

Evidence of a worm-like creature about the size of a grain of rice has been uncovered in South Australia, and researchers believe it is the oldest ancestor on the family tree that includes humans and most animals. The creature lived 555 million years ago. It's considered to be the earliest bilaterian. Bilaterians are organisms with a front, back, two openings on either end and a gut that connects them. They were an evolutionary step forward for early life on Earth. Some of the oldest........

Four New Asteroids are Approaching Earth This Weekend, Says NASA

The four asteroids in question have been named by CNEOS as 2020 FK, 2020 FS, 2020 DP4 and 2020 FF1. The 2020 FK asteroid is the smallest of the four, measuring just 43 feet in diameter. It is presently hurtling through space at a speed of over 37,000kmph, and will approach Earth from a distance of 1.36 million kilometres. The second of the asteroids, 2020 FS, is also fairly small, measuring 56 feet in diameter. It is travelling at over 15,000kmph, and will make the farthest approach to Earth among the band of asteroids, at 3.05 million kilometres away. These two asteroids will ........

what you re seeing right now is the past so your brain is predicting the present

What you're seeing right now is the past, so your brain is predicting the present

We feel that we live in the present. When we open our eyes, we perceive the outside world as it is right now. But we are actually living slightly in the past. It takes time for information from our eyes to reach our brain, where it is processed, analysed and ultimately integrated into consciousness. Due to this delay, the information available to our conscious experience is always outdated. So why don't we notice these delays, and how does the brain allow us to feel like we are experiencing the world in real time?........

mysterious ice age structure made from the bones of 60 mammoths discovered

Mysterious Ice Age structure made from the bones of 60 mammoths discovered

Around 25,000 years ago, hunter-gatherers used the bones from 60 mammoths to build a large circular structure in Russia. And no one knows why. Researchers have excavated the site in an attempt to understand it, but they don't know why the structure was built, according to a new study. This isn't the first "mammoth house" to be found in Russia, but it is the oldest and largest, measuring 41 feet across.........

Heat stress may impact over a billion by end of century, study finds

Heat stress strikes when the human body isn't able to keep its temperature at healthy levels through sweating, following exposure to extreme heat. It can cause things like cramping, exhaustion and, on the more severe side of things, heat stroke, which is a life-threatening condition. Were the planet to warm by 1.5° C (2.7° F) by the end of the century (a very conservative projection), the team calculates that heat stress would affect areas currently home to 500 million peop........

how do you keep a space station clean

How do you keep a space station clean?

The scientists found that the ISS has developed a stable population of some 55 different types of microorganisms. But, despite the lack of gravity, these bacteria, fungi, moulds, protozoa and viruses have adapted well to their surroundings. “They weren’t more resistant to antibiotics or had other potentially harmful traits for the humans,” says Moissl-Eichinger. “But we did find they had adapted to all the metal surfaces.” These metal munching microbes are known as technophiles and, as with Mir, could pose a long-term risk to space station systems. “In the long run,........

Is it possible to build wildlife-friendly windfarms?

In fact, one study led by Maria Thaker, a professor of ecology at the Indian Institute of Science’s Center for Ecological Sciences, found that the ecological impact of wind farms ripples out into the surrounding ecosystem. Conducted in the mountain plateaus of India’s Western Ghats, Thaker and her colleagues discovered almost four times more predatory birds in areas without wind turbines, while observing more lizards around wind farms. “We found that density and activity of birds were much lower in........

Moon and Earth aren’t made up of same material; scientists clear doubt over Moon’s formation theory

There are multiple theories which try to explain the formation of the Moon, but the giant-impact hypothesis is the most reliable on. It claims that around 4.5 billion years ago, something the size of Mars called Theia collided with a newly formed Earth. The colossal impact is believed to have resulted in the object fusing with Earth and primed it for life while breaking off a large chunk that went on to become the Moon. While this theory continues to become what favoured model for expl........
