    Posted Monday, April 28th, 2014 08:24 pm GMT -4

    If you like stars, as I do, this episode is not to be missed. However, if you are also afraid of the end of the universe, even though it will happen well after you actually kick it, you may want to rethink that. For me, this episode brought back all the nightmares of childhood brought […]

    Posted Saturday, April 12th, 2014 09:00 am GMT -4

    It’s amazing what 3D printers can do. From creating food to toys, it makes sense the next evolution of 3D printers would allow scientists to create a human organ. Scientists can create small pieces of living tissue in a lab. In an ideal world, these tissues can be put together to create organs in what […]

  • Scientists Discover Evidence That The Universe Is Expanding

    Posted Thursday, March 27th, 2014 01:00 pm GMT -4

    This is a very exciting time for science news as scientists have found pretty substantial evidence that, like my waistline, the universe is actually expanding. Perhaps the universe eating too many donuts? Scientists have found an orientation, or key polarization, of tiny microwaves that are caused by gravitational waves. These gravitational waves are said to […]

  • Study Shows Civilization Is Doomed

    Posted Sunday, March 23rd, 2014 04:30 pm GMT -4

    Someone recently told me that I needed to change my attitude about the world. Apparently, it would behoove me to think more positively about humanity, that things will inevitably work out, that the universe unfolds as it should. Well, the universe does unfold as it should, but not in the positive way you may think. […]

    Posted Sunday, March 23rd, 2014 10:30 am GMT -4

    I don’t believe in a lot of things, but I do believe in the five-second rule. It turns out I’ve got science on my side. If you’re clumsy like me, you may know that the five-second rule means that when you drop food on the floor you can wait a total of five seconds to […]
