Boats’ Disappearance in Bermuda Triangle Explained by New Theory

Posted by in category: transportation

Video by Fox News

The mystery behind the disappearance of several boats in the Bermuda Triangle may have finally been unraveled in a new theory by British scientists. According to the recent research, “rogue” waves going up to 100 feet could be engulfing boats in the region.

At least 1,000 lives have been lost in the region within the last 100 years, and on average, four aircraft and over a dozen yachts go missing every year there. The infamous body of water lies in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean and stretches 270,271 square miles between Florida, Bermuda and Puerto Rico.

Wildfires past and present could hamper local hunting

Posted by in category: climatology

The Manastash Ridge Fire burning 12 miles south of Cle Elum has closed areas used by hunters in the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest in the south fork of the Manastash Creek drainage.

Lightning started the fire in August, and the U.S. Forest Service has no estimate as to when the area might reopen, Cle Elum Ranger District spokesperson Nancy Jones said.

She recommends hunters check information about the closed area at http://www.fs.usda.gov/alerts/okawen/alerts-notices/?aid=19608 before venturing into the Manastash.

Egyptian Solar and Wind Farms Are So Impressive, Aliens Have to Be Involved

Posted by in categories: government, solar power, sustainability

The Egyptian government wants to get 42 percent of its energy sector powered by renewables by 2025, leaving a healthy 5-year window for their 2030 sustainability goals with the United Nations.

In the Western Desert, 400 miles south of Cairo, a solar energy company named KarmSolar is helping them do it. Founded by five friends in a cafe, the company is building what will become a hub of 30 individual power plants with a collective capacity of 1.8 gigawatts of electricity. Located near the Benban village near the Nile, KarmSolar’s complex already employs 4,000 people at the first of 30 facilities, which came online this past November. Once it’s completed, according to the Los Angeles Times, the Benban Solar Park will be the largest solar plant in the world.

Scientists discovered a completely new shape hiding in our cells

Posted by in category: space

Science news is filled with fresh discoveries of all kinds of things. It seems like every day there’s a new dinosaur, planet, or ancient creature being brought back to life. Now, researchers are announcing the discovery of another new thing, but this time it’s a new… shape.

Just like the other “new” things that science brings us, the term “new” itself is relative. Just like the long-dead dinosaurs and incredibly-old planets being discovered on a regular basis, this new shape has been around for a while, but researchers are just now studying and describing it in detail. It’s called a “scutoid” and it’s actually pretty cool.

Made In Space’s ‘Archinaut’ Could Build Big Power Systems for Small Satellites

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, satellites, solar power, sustainability

Small satellites will soon pack an outsize power punch, if one company’s plans come to fruition.

One of the first big jobs for the Archinaut in-space assembly robot being developed by California startup Made In Space may involve outfitting small satellites with large solar-power systems in Earth orbit.

Such work could boost the power potential of spacecraft in the 330-lb. to 660-lb. (150 to 300 kilograms) range by a factor of five or more, allowing them to take on duties previously limited to larger satellites, company representatives said.

Time Is Precious, So Let’s Enjoy More of It

Posted by in categories: biological, life extension

Life extension would give us more time to enjoy; why not?


At times, meeting people feels like going to the theater. Conversations tend to revolve around the same topics and can sound so cliché that they seem scripted. Of course, it depends on the people—close friends tend to be far more genuine than that—but if you pay attention during a conversation, a certain topic will pop up several times: aging.

Depending on the age of the people involved, the way they discuss aging will be different. Teenagers probably won’t even touch the subject; it generally starts creeping up in conversations once working life has begun or is about to begin. At this stage, chronological and biological aging are mostly conflated; responsibilities, more demanding schedules, and abandoning student life are all seen as hallmarks of growing older, when, in fact, they are only signs of growing up and are not absolute.

International report confirms 2017 was one of three warmest years on record

Posted by in category: climatology

It’s official: 2017 was the third-warmest year on record for the globe, behind 2016 (first) and 2015, according to the 28th annual State of the Climate report. The planet also experienced record-high greenhouse gas concentrations as well as rises in sea level.

The annual checkup for the planetoffsite link, led by scientists from NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information and published by the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, is based on contributions from more than 500 scientists in 65 countries and offers insight on global climate indicators, extreme weather events and other valuable environmental data.

Notable findings from the international report include:
