Creating Next-generation Inks that Never Fade

Posted by in category: futurism

face_with_colon_three circa 2021.


Most of the colors we see around us are produced by the reflection of light from pigments. Yet there is another type of color called “structural color,” produced when light is reflected off the special microstructure of a surface. Structural color is what makes the surface of soap bubbles iridescent and the body of a jewel beetle appear to glitter. While pigmented colors have the disadvantage of fading due to ultraviolet rays, structural colors retain their appearance as long as the microstructure remains intact. Associate Professor Michinari Kohri of Chiba University is working to artificially reproduce these structural colors. Taking a hint from the structural colors of peacock and turkey feathers, he has succeeded in reproducing the microstructure that gives rise to the colors and is now working on the development of special ink that will not fade.

Dr Katcher’s E5 Experiment September 2022 Update | Review

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

So one treated rat made it to 45 months which is 113 for people. A 2nd trial is underway to try and increase these results. Also, the human topical test for E5 is just for skin rejuvenation, not fro full rejuvenation or lifespan increase for people.


In this video we report on the August 2022 update from Dr. Katcher’s experiment with E5 along with some other details about the book launch in other languages, the new experiment and topical E5 for humans!

Life on Earth can help determine if there is life on other planets

Posted by in category: space

A new theory disputes a widely accepted claim about the existence of life on other planets.

The equivalence of life on Earth may hold the key to determining life existence on other planets according to a recent study published by Cambridge University Press.

Scientists have often questioned if the existence of life on Earth can tell us about abiogenesis, or the origin of life from inorganic substances, on other planets. Therefore the new insights may provide a fresh boost of understanding in the field.

Our solar power dreams are threatened by shadows, we shouldn’t ignore them for long

Posted by in categories: solar power, sustainability

Save your solar panels from the shade.

Currently, solar power accounts for 3.3 percent of the total energy produced in the US, and it has become the fastest-growing source of clean energy in the country. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory estimates that by 2050, the share of solar energy in America’s total electricity production could reach 45 percent. However, in order to achieve this milestone, solar energy experts will have to make photovoltaic systems more efficient and advanced than ever.

China’s Mars Zhurong rover probes underneath the potential site of an ancient ocean

Posted by in category: space

The country’s space agency aims to send humans to the red planet before NASA.

Back in May 2020, China landed its first rover, called Mars Zhurong, on the red planet. The Zhurong mission is expected to explore the planet for a total of roughly 90 sols (92 Earth days). During that time, it will use equipment, including a magnetic field detector, cameras, spectrometers, and a weather station to collect valuable data for scientists on Earth.

Now, as per a press statement, a new radar image from the Zhurong Mars rover sheds new light on the surface structures of the Utopia Planitia basin, the largest recognized impact basin on Mars with an estimated diameter of 2,050 miles (3,300 km). China National Space Administration.

Rare diamond 410 miles below Earth’s surface reveals evidence of water

Posted by in category: futurism

Scientists might have just discovered a pinch of ocean inside the Earth.

A rare diamond found in the mines of Botswana has provided more details about the region between the Earth’s upper and lower mantle. Also called the transition zone or the 660 km discontinuity, the region is likely to be rich in water, according to a recent study.

Finding large amounts of water underground on a planet whose 71 percent surface is water may not sound like a big revelation. Yet it is. Liquid water on the Earth’s surface may seem like a lot but it is merely a puddle when compared to the water content under the crust.

Scientists say we should prioritize a human mission to Venus before Mars

Posted by in category: space

Mars isn’t going anywhere.

Seeing as Venus has a hellish surface temperature, hot enough to melt lead, you wouldn’t think scientists would be clamoring to send humans to the fiery planet. Then there’s the crushing atmospheric pressure.

Being lonely and unhappy quickens the aging process more than smoking

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension, neuroscience

There are many ways one can hurt themselves.

When we feel lonely or sad, we may tend to retreat to our shelves or surround ourselves with the people we trust just to put a temporary band-aid on the sorrow we experience. However, finding no cure to being actually alone and unhappy for a long time can have devastating effects not only on our mental health but also on our physical health, hence our appearance.

Scientists just confirmed that prolonged loneliness and unhappiness could accelerate the aging process of an individual, according to a study published in the journal Aging-US.
