Our Prototypes column introduces new vehicle concepts and presents visuals from designers who illustrate the ideas. Some of them will be extensions of existing concepts, others will be new, some will be production ready, and others really far-fetched. The concept The Oxyde is a spacec...
Space is big and dark, and since there is no air, no one can hear you scream as you float away forever and ever and ever. But those are only the human-sized terrors that space has to offer our nightmares. Because, as you will see, if you step back a few thousand light years from your simple humanoid...
Crappy? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You have no idea kid! This is the image of New York taken from the International Space Station, 400 km away from any point on Earth (that is directly under it) and travelling at 27000 km/h. An image of New York taken from the International Space Station. Photo: Quora So ...
This week a bizarrely behaving star began acting very odd again, sending scientists scrambling to train telescopes on it in hopes of solving its mystery. In 2015, astronomers discovered what's become known as one of the strangest stars seen so far in the universe. Weird things are happenin...
We never stopped evolving. Humans are still evolving, So, where will evolution take us in 1,000 years? Chances are we'll be taller. Humans have already seen a boom in height over the last 130 years. In 1880 the average American male was 5'7" (170 cm). Today, he's 5'10" (177 cm). We may also mer...

So you made your way to this article, but how did you do it? Did your motor cortex fire up the muscle fibers in your fingers to click on a particular area of the screen, prompting the CPU inside your device to load up this page? One day that could all seem decidedly archaic. That’s because some sm...
It's a big, crazy world out there, so it's understandable that strange stuff happens in it. Fortunately for us puny humans, science has been able to explain some of it. But, in the same way that explaining a joke ruins it, it remains to be seen whether or not science's explanations take the fun out ...
Credit: Viktor Fiker | Dreamstime The average temperature on Earth is in danger of exceeding a major climate threshold inside a decade, say researchers in Australia, if a dormant source of warming in the Pacific Ocean switches on, giving a boost to global temperature rise. Under the 2015 Paris Agree...

Public, private and hybrid cloud implementations will accelerate in 2017 as CIOs seek to take advantage of the cloud’s economies of scale to build core applications. Cloud computing has helped many enterprises transform themselves over the last five years, but experts agree that the market is...
Dave Burke, Google Vice President of Engineering for Android, speaks during the opening keynote address at the Google I/O 2017 Conference. Though we got out first peek at Android O back in March, Google finally revealed  more details this week at its I/O developers conference abo...
This is an illustration of layers of radiation belts close to Earth that were produced as a result of Cold War high-altitude nuclear explosion tests. The ongoing debate about global warming and climate change includes arguments about whether our world actually faces such a problem, and whe...
Why are we the way that we are? Is there anything we can do to change the way we think, behave, and react? And even if we come to know how the brain works, are we limited by our underlying circuitry or can we overcome our limitations? Over the years, TED has put on dozens of amazing presen...
There are enough things in this life to worry about. Like nuclear war, climate change, and whether or not you’re brushing your teeth correctly. The Earth spinning too fast should not be high up on your list, simply because it’s not very likely to happen anytime soon—and if it does, y...
Composite; NASA Scientists believe they may have discovered evidence of a parallel universe that crashed into our own in a galactic impact mirroring a car crash. Since 2004, when it was first spotted by NASA, scientists have been baffled by the discovery an unusually cold region of space which is 1....
We’ve seen a few concepts imagining what iOS 11 could look like, but today the folks at MacStories have put together a video highlighting new features that could come to the iPad as part of the update. The incredibly well thought out concept imagines features such as system-wide dra...
Tabby's star, famous for its inexplicable dips in brightness, is going through one of those dips right now. As far as weird stars go, few are as strange as KIC 8462852, nicknamed Tabby's star. Tabby's star randomly dims and brightens for apparently no reason, which led some astronomers in 2015&...
The invisible shield is the result of very low frequency radio communications interacting with particles in space. Earth might seem like a cozy place to live, and that's mostly true, but only due to a very thin protective barrier generated by our planet's magnetic field. Without this natural shield,...
If you're nervous about public speaking, you're not alone—it's so common a fear that it even has its own name: Glossophobia. A 2013 StatisticBrain survey found that 74 percent of adults have anxiety about speaking in public....
Apple’s upcoming new iPhone 8 is the most hotly anticipated smartphone since 2014, when news first began to leak that the company would finally release larger iPhones. The iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus featured the bigger displays users had been clamoring for, and they also sported a s...
Most of the time, NASA spends its days searching for and studying things in space that resulted from natural phenomena — like creepy valleys on Mars and vast oceans on Europa — but its newest discovery is quite different. In a new paper published in Space Science Reviews, researchers reveal...
Adventurous people out there have the resources to explore the farthest reaches of the Earth. But while it seems every last spot will get explored, researched, and photographed, there do remain some places that have barely been touched—or haven't been seen at all. From the deepest depths to the hi...
Our solar system is pretty sweet. It supports life on Earth and is relatively safe — at least, it is for now. These little tweaks would utterly doom life on Earth. If Jupiter wasn't there Shutterstock Jupiter isn't just a cool planet with tons of moons around it. Astronomers theorize that our big ...
