Scientists find 200 sextillion more stars in the sky
By: A.W. Berry
200 sextillion more stars have been projected to be in the sky according to reports citing data released by Yale and Harvard professors in the Journal of Nature. These claims build on earlier claims regarding universal star count by organizations such as the European Space...

The late Dr Carl Sagan summed it all up for us, saying "Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known." And these words have never rang more true than now, with the recent discovery that there are approximately three times more stars in the...
Extraterrestrial life: Fact or fiction
By: Christyl Rivers
A Card from ET for the holidays Most all people, including most scientists, assume ours is not the only inhabited planet in the Universe. The very number of stars, with 100sextillion (quite a sexy, scintillating number) added recently to the tally, tells us this is...
Nanotechnology: The science of the small
By: Gregg Henglein
How deep a root can something one one-hundredth the width of a human hair possibly forge? You would be surprised, for biologists, chemists, physicists and engineers are all involved in the study of substances at this minute scale. How so?The discipline is nanotechnology, and...
Theoretical X-particle explains both antimatter and dark matter
By: Terrence Aym
Scientists have found a new 'Holy Grail' to hunt: the X Particle.The hypothetical bit of matter may simultaneously solve two enigma-plagued conundrums: the stuff making up dark matter, and the antimatter puzzle. The antimatter dilemmaFrom the day that the existence of antimatter was first...
Theoretical X-particle explains both antimatter and dark matter
By: A.W. Berry
In the world of physics, the existence of a theoretical X-particle may explain why anything in the universe exists at all including antimatter and dark matter. None of these things can be seen with human eyes, and only some of it, such as anti-helium, may...
Astronomers claim dwarf sun lies beyond Pluto
By: Terrence Aym

Iron is one of the most useful metals that exist on earth. Because of its physical properties, like strength and high melting point, it is used to make several industrial machines and everyday commodities. Examples include bridges, iron sheets for roofs of houses, doors and...
Quantum entanglement in relation to computers
By: Samuel Lamphier
The Josephson Effect and Josephson Junction The British physicist Brian David Josephson postulated the existence of a current which could traverse two superconductors separated by an insulator of miniscule dimensions in 1962. His prediction has allowed the development of quantum mechanical devices such as the...
