A team of astronomers from the University of Manchester in collaboration with researchers from Spain and Mexico have discovered a very rare and valuable gas 4,000 light-years from Earth, the web portal Phys.org reported. Helium-3 is a gas that can be used in various fields. For example, it could be used as a fuel for nuclear power plants as well as in cryogenics and medicine. …
For the second time this year, world-class astronomers claimed to have proven the existence of Planet Nine despite being baffled about the planet’s genesis and uncertainty of its present location. On Tuesday, astronomers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) presented new research pointing to the existence of an undiscovered ninth planet in the Solar System. “Evidence points to Planet Nine existing, but we cannot explain for certain …
Dr. Steven Greer, founder of the worldwide Disclosure Movement and the Center for the Study of Extraterrestrial Intelligence is working to produce one of the most significant films of our time. This film exposes the greatest story never told: The Earth has been visited by people from other worlds who are not malicious, but in fact concerned for the future …
The Chinese skullcap is traditionally used as a treatment for fever, liver and lung complaints. Previous research found compounds called flavones, found in the roots, not only have beneficial anti-viral and anti-oxidant effects, but also killed human cancers while leaving healthy cells untouched. In animal experiments the flavones halted tumour growth. “It’s exciting to consider that the plants which have …
The UK is set to start testing the Chickenpox Vaccine 'Varilrix' , the vaccine has been approved for use in the UK since 2013 but is still not part of the Countries routine vaccination schedule.

‘The planet hasn’t yet been seen by scientists. Instead, they have found it by watching the way that dwarf planets and other objects in the outer solar system move — their orbits seem to be disturbed by something huge but hidden sitting out there. “If there’s going to be another planet in the solar system, I think this is …
The world got a glimpse of the most human-like robot ever created with the debut of a humanoid named Nadine at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University (NTU). Made in the image of her creator, Prof. Nadia Thalmann, Nadine will eventually provide childcare and offer companionship to elderly people. Researchers are on the verge of developing robots which are practically indistinguishable from …
Modern science is only beginning to catch up to the wisdom of the ancients: plants possess sentience and a rudimentary form of intelligence. Plants are far more intelligent and capable than we given them credit. In fact, provocative research from 2010 published in Plant Signaling & Behaviorproposes that since they cannot escape environmental stresses in the manner of animals, they …
A British animal genetics firm, working with U.S. scientists, has bred the world’s first pigs resistant to a common viral disease, using the hot new technology of gene editing. Genus, which supplies pig and bull semen to farmers worldwide, said on Tuesday it had worked with the University of Missouri to develop pigs resistant to Porcine Reproductive and Respiratory …
