Peru’s Sabancaya volcano has been restless for the past few years.

Peru’s Sabancaya volcano has been restless for the past few years. Recently, the occasional puffs of ash and volcanic gases have become more frequent and intense. Since November 6, 2016, the 5967-meter (19,577-foot) mountain has produced ash eruptions and dozens of explosions. On November 16, 2016, (left) a cloud of ash billowed over Sabancaya; by November 19 (right), ash had darkened the ground. In the November 16 image, the bright area to the southwest of Sabancaya is snow near the peak of Mount Ampato, a dormant volcano. The November 16…

Is There Any Plausible Reason Why Aliens Would Evolve To Look Like Us?

  In science fiction movies and TV shows, intelligent aliens are usually the same basic shape as humans: two arms, two legs and a head. But why would creatures that evolved on a completely different planet look so similar to us? We asked some experts, and they told us the most likely explanations for humanoid aliens. Top image: Artwork by Wayne Douglas Barlowe The truth is, aliens tend to look like us in science fiction for a couple of basic reasons: budget, and relatability. “Most aliens in SF are humanoid…

Be careful what you say around jumping spiders

Accidental chair squeaks in a lab have tipped off researchers to a new world of eavesdroppers. Spiders don’t have eardrums, though their exquisitely sensitive leg hairs pick up vibrations humming through solids like web silk and leaves. Biologists thought that any airborne sounds more than a few centimeters away would be inaudible. But the first recordings of auditory nerve cells firing inside a spider brain suggest that the tiny Phidippus audax jumping spider can pick up airborne sounds from at least three meters away, says Ronald Hoy of Cornell University….

The Human Brain Has A ‘Super’ Capacity To Recognise Faces — And Neuroscientists, Psychologists, And Police Are Just Starting To Figure Out Why

Imagine walking into the coffee shop where you’ve been meeting your best friend every day for a year and glazing over her face as if she were a stranger, unable to pick her profile out of the crowd. Now imagine getting on a crowded train and spotting the person who bumped into you at the grocery store six years ago. Each of these situations is considered a normal occurrence for roughly 1% of the population. The first scenario might happen frequently to a “prosopagnosic,” someone who is face blind. The…

A Potential New Dwarf Planet Has Been Found In The Solar System

Exciting news everyone, a potential new dwarf planet has just been discovered in the Kuiper Belt at the edge of the Solar System. Called 2014 UZ224, it’s located beyond the orbit of Pluto, and may be one of a hundred such objects still undiscovered. This particular object is thought to be about 530 kilometers (330 miles) across, compared to 2,374 kilometers (1,475 miles) for Pluto, one of the other five confirmed dwarf planets at the moment. The others are Ceres, Eris, Makemake, and Haumea. Another candidate, 2015 RR245, was announced earlier…

Cooling Electronic Devices In A new Faster And Cheaper Way

Researchers of North Carolina State University have reached the new technique that will cool the electronic devices especially those who generate heat, as power devices and lasers. The new technique depend on using a heat spreader from copper-graphene, the heat spreader is attached to the device using attaching material made from indium-graphene. The heat spreader and the attaching material have higher thermal conductivity, which permit the device to cool with more efficiency than the used ways nowadays. A North Carolina State University researcher has developed a more efficient, less expensive…

The Elevators Of The Future Will Float On Magnets

While cars, computers, and a wide range of other technologies have benefitted from new designs and novel advances, the elevator has lagged behind. In most buildings, elevators still use the same cable-based system they did when they were invented. But some are working to revolutionize this system with the same technology used by high-speed rail: magnets. By using electromagnets to create linear motors that would drive each elevator car on a cushion of air, an elevator system would be freed of its cables and allowed to move in all directions….
