Steady-state model

Posted by in categories: cosmology, evolution

Verse Uni This sometimes comes up: Could the universe have always existed? The problem is, if the universe had existed for an infinite amount of time, everything that could possibly happen must already have happened an infinite number of times — including that … See more.


In cosmology, the steady-state model is an alternative to the Big Bang theory of evolution of the universe. In the steady-state model, the density of matter in the expanding universe remains unchanged due to a continuous creation of matter, thus adhering to the perfect cosmological principle, a principle that asserts that the observable universe is practically the same at any time and any place.

Novel AI algorithm may be the key for a breakthrough epilepsy treatment

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, information science, robotics/AI

A group of scientists from the University College London has developed an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm that can detect drug-resistant focal cortical dysplasia (FCD), a subtle anomaly in the brain that leads to epileptic seizures. This is a promising step for scientists toward detecting and curing epilepsy in its early stages.

To develop the algorithm, the Multicentre Epilepsy Lesion Detection project (MELD) gathered more than 1,000 patients’ MRI scans from 22 international epilepsy centers, which reports where anomalies are in cases of drug-resistant focal cortical dysplasia (FCD), a major reason behind epilepsy.

Australian astrophysicist says ‘we are lucky’ SpaceX’s Crew-1 debris landed in a rural area

Posted by in category: space travel

He was the first expert on the scene after two farmers found pieces of fallen space machinery.

How do you identify a piece of space debris that’s partially burned up on re-entry before falling down to Earth like a comet? It turns out that, in the case of a piece of SpaceX’s Crew-1 capsule that recently came crashing down onto a sheep field in Australia, it wasn’t too hard at all.

Before he saw the piece of fallen space machinery in person, Dr. Brad Tucker, an astrophysicist from the Australian National University, was pretty sure it was going to be a piece of Crew-1, he tells IE in an interview.

Scientists find ‘exciting’ links of Moon’s origin to Earth’s mantle

Posted by in categories: materials, space

This is the first definitive proof that the Moon inherited indigenous noble gases from the Earth’s mantle.

The Moon has long been a source of fascination for humans. The discovery is an essential piece of the puzzle in understanding how the Moon was formed. ‘Tom Dooley’ is the only instrument in the world capable of detecting such low helium and neon concentrations. A new study has found that Moon inherited the indigenous noble gases of helium and neon from Earth’s mantle.

Researchers from Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH), Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, discovered the first definitive proof that the Moon inherited indigenous noble gases from the Earth’s mantle, according to a study published in the journal Science Advances on Wednesday.

MIT researchers discover bacteria’s new antiviral defense system

Posted by in categories: bioengineering, biotech/medical, chemistry, genetics, life extension

Specific proteins in prokaryotes detect viruses in unexpectedly direct ways.

Bacteria use a variety of defense strategies to fight off viral infection. STAND ATPases in humans are known to respond to bacterial infections by inducing programmed cell death in infected cells. Scientists predict that many more antiviral weapons will be discovered in the microbial world in the future. Scientists have discovered a new unexplored microbial defense system in bacteria.

Researchers uncovered specific proteins in prokaryotes (bacteria and archaea) that detect viruses in unexpectedly direct ways, recognizing critical parts of the viruses and causing the single-celled organisms to commit suicide to stop the infection within a microbial community, according to a press release published in the official website of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) on Thursday.

First-of-its-kind armored dinosaur discovered — and it’s only as big as a house cat

Posted by in category: futurism

Scientists have discovered the remains of a small armored dinosaur.

Paleontologists announced the discovery of a previously unknown small armored dinosaur in southern Argentina, according to a report by The Guardian.

Jakapil Kaniukura, the Cretaceous period dinosaur, would have been well-protected with rows of bony disc-shaped armor along its neck, back, and tail.

A groundbreaking power-generating system delivers electricity to an Air Force Base electrical grid

Posted by in categories: energy, engineering

For the first time ever, electricity is delivered through heated supercritical carbon dioxide.

The method has so far succeeded in adding 10 kilowatts to the grid.

Researchers were inspired by elevators to create the system.

Researchers find new method to treat wounds and skin infections

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Monocytes, a type of white blood cell, are alone capable of facilitating faster wound healing, says study.

Scientists from the University of Calgary, Canada, have discovered a promising new approach to treating bacterial skin infections. The research showed that monocytes alone are capable of facilitating faster wound healing. The researchers’ next step is to better understand how immune cells like neutrophils function during infection. Researchers have discovered a promising new approach to treating bacterial skin infections.

A team of scientists from the University of Calgary, Canada, revealed new insights which could lead to advancements in the treatment of bacterial infections and wounds, according to a study published in Nature science journal on Friday.
