- 3769 days ago -
DNA has been found to have a bizarre ability to put itself together, even at a distance, when according to known science it shouldn't be able to. Explanation: None, at least not yet.
Theory Hawking Predicted 30 Years Ago Proved By Simulated Black Hole
Science & Tech  (tags: hawking, space, black hole, quantum, physics, theory, radiation )

- 4085 days ago -
Quantum mechanics predicts that entangled pairs made up of a particle and its anti-particle can spontaneously pop out of otherwise empty space, exist for a fleeting moment, and then annihilate each other and disappear. In the 1970s, Hawking predicted that
Meaningful Monkey Calls

Science & Tech  (tags: blue, galaxy, research, Einstein, theory, space, news )

- 4148 days ago -
The "supermassive" black holes at the centres of most galaxies could be spinning at a dizzying rate, new research shows.These celestial monsters may be rotating so fast, they are close to the maximum rates allowed by Einstein's theory of relativity.
Is Time Literally Slowing Down and Disappearing From the Universe?
Science & Tech  (tags: time, slow, disappear, universe, space-time, continuum, theory, speculation )

- 4157 days ago -
Remember a little thing called the space-time continuum? Well what if the time part of the equation was literally running out? New evidence is suggesting that time is slowly disappearing from our universe, and will one day vanish completely. This radical

Science & Tech  (tags: Huntington disease, humans, theory, trinucleotide repeats, gene, disease model, research )

- 4196 days ago -
The longer the sequence, the greater the chance of additional mutation. The genes carrying the disease code might be accumulating more and more DNA repeats over time, until some critical threshold is crossed.
