Nuclear fusion milestone passed at US lab

Submitted by labrint in news at 2013-10-08 17:20:01 UTC

Harnessing fusion (the process that powers the Sun) could provide an unlimited and cheap source of energy. But to be viable, fusion power plants would have to produce more energy than they consume, which has proven elusive. Now, a breakthrough by scientists at the National Ignition Facility (NIF) could boost hopes of scaling up fusion. During an experiment, the amount of energy released through the fusion reaction exceeded the amount of energy being absorbed by the fuel - the first time this had been achieved at any fusion facility in the world. more

Google vs. Death

Submitted by nitdia in news at 2013-09-19 21:30:02 UTC

Google is planning to launch Calico, a new company that will focus on health and aging in particular.

Health care is certainly one of those areas. We should shoot for the things that are really, really important, so 10 or 20 years from now we have those things done." more

Scientists Invent Oxygen Particle That If Injected, Allows You To Live Without Breathing

Submitted by par in news at 2013-11-14 23:10:01 UTC

A team of scientists at the Boston Children’s Hospital have invented what is being considered one the greatest medical breakthroughs in recent years. They have designed a microparticle that can be injected into a person’s bloodstream that can quickly oxygenate their blood. This will even work if the ability to breathe has been restricted, or even cut off entirely. This finding has the potential to save millions of lives every year. The microparticles can keep an object alive for up to 30 min after respiratory failure. This has countless potential uses as it allows life to continue when oxygen more

Hot spots: Global temperature rise

Submitted by aragorn in interesting stuff at 2013-10-11 14:10:01 UTC

On average, global temperatures will exceed historical norms as soon as 2047 and no later than 2069, according to new research by scientists at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. In some places, it will happen a lot sooner: 2020 in Manokwari, Indonesia, and 2023 in Kingston, Jamaica, the researchers predict. For Washington, it will be 2047. If concerted steps are taken to rapidly mitigate carbon dioxide emissions, the warmup will be slowed by decades. more

5 Reasons the English Language Makes No Freaking Sense

Submitted by par in interesting stuff at 2013-11-28 23:40:01 UTC

As much as we might judge people for their bad spelling, the truth is that English spelling doesn't make any goddamn sense. Just look at that sentence: Why is there an "n" but no "n" sound in "goddamn"? It turns out there's one perfectly good reason for that and many other eccentricities of the language, and that one good reason is actually a bunch of stupid reasons that are all shitty and terrible.

Why does the human brain create false memories?

Submitted by nitdia in interesting stuff at 2013-10-01 22:10:01 UTC

Neuroscientists say that many of our daily memories are falsely reconstructed because our view of the world is constantly changing. A famous experiment carried out by Elizabeth Loftus in 1994 revealed that she was able to convince a quarter of her participants they were once lost in a shopping centre as a child. Another similar experiment in 2002 found that half of the participants were tricked into believing they had taken a hot air balloon ride as a child, simply by showing them doctored photographic "evidence". more
