Scientists believe they have moved a step closer to proving the existence of a parallel universe with the discovery of a mysterious ‘cold spot’. This cool patch of space, that was first spotted by the NASA WMAP satellite in 2004, is part of the radiation that was thought to have been p...
This is a public domain image showing the planet Mercury crossing our sun. Whenever a story comes out claiming to show real pictures or video of UFOs, hope springs eternal that maybe, just maybe, this might be that elusive smoking-gun evidence of alien technology. Not a day goes by, either, without ...
CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) — The days of typing in a search engine or scrolling through music playlists are fading. Many people now have voice recognition assistants that can perform certain tasks as soon as you ask. But, as technology advances, so do hacking tools. News 2’s Consumer Investigator Lib...
The discovered of this supernova, Patrick Wiggins, took these two images of the Fireworks galaxy on May 12th and May 14th, with the additional light in the more recent image showing the location of the night sky's newest supernova. After burning bright for millions of years, the brightest stars of a...
What the hell is that thing? If there is one thing social media teaches us today, it's not to leave naming rights up to the hive mind. Move over Boaty McBoatface – a group of aurora enthusiasts have given a newly discovered atmospheric phenomenon the name 'Steve', because ... well what e...
A global view of the entire Antarctic region, most of the Southern Ocean, large portions of the southern Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, as well as the island of Madagascar and southern Africa. Scientists believe a massive object that could change our understanding of history is hidden beneath the Anta...
Scientists at Disney Research converted an entire room into a wireless charger. Credit: Disney Research When you need to charge your electronic devices on the go, it can be a hassle trying to find somewhere to plug in. And though some devices can already be charged without wires, researchers at The ...
While 2016 saw its share of chaos, it also produced some outstanding brain science and psych research. This list isn’t meant to be exhaustive (and it's not in any particular order), but is rather a curation of great studies covered here at Neuropsyched. It's also a preview...

Researchers discovered that Proxima b has the right climate for oceans. And extraterrestrials. Last year, scientists from the U.S., Israel, the U.K, Chile, Poland, Germany, Spain and France discovered an "Earth-like" planet. This planet is juuuust outside our own solar system, only four light y...
Climate simulations have revealed Proxima B could have liquid water on its surface. Exoplanet Proxima B, which was recently discovered orbiting our closest neighbouring star, may have the potential to support life, new climate simulations have revealed. Ever since it was identified in August 2016,&n...
If you could travel back in time 41,000 years to the last ice age, your compass would point south instead of north. That’s because for a period of a few hundred years, the Earth’s magnetic field was reversed. These reversals have happpened repeatedly over the planet’s history, s...
Understanding the expansion of the universe is one of physicists and astronomers' priority. What causes the accelerating expansion of our universe is one of science's greatest mysteries. Now, physicists say they might have found a way to explain this puzzling phenomenon. Nearly two decades ago, in 1...
New Estimate Puts the Supernova Killzone Within 50 Light-Years of Earth There are a lot of ways that life on Earth could come to an end: an asteroid strike, global climate catastrophe, or nuclear war are among them. But perhaps the most haunting would be death by supernova, because there’s ab...
A powerful space telescope orbiting Earth has spied on two galaxies in the midst of a cosmic close call 500 million light-years away.  The Hubble Space Telescope spotted two galaxies — collectively called IRAS 06076-2139 — speeding past one another at about 1.2 million miles per hour, accor...
In about a billion years time, the sun’s increasing brightness will blast the Earth to the point that all complex life forms will die. The oceans will dwindle away until there are only two ponds left at the Earth’s poles – which become the last havens of life on our planet. That cheery pr...
Why do the other planets, like Venus (shown above) have a different atmosphere than Earth? Credit: ESA Here on Earth, we tend to take our atmosphere for granted, and not without reason. Our atmosphere has a lovely mix of nitrogen and oxygen (78% and 21% respectively) with trace amounts of water vapo...
An illustration showing changes in the Van Allen Belts as a "space tsunami" of solar radiation batters Earth's magnetic field. The toll taken by extreme weather here on Earth gets most of the attention, but a new discovery by Edmonton scientists is highlighting the impa...
"Have you ever thought about the startup nature of God's redemptive plan? The original startup!" It's Sunday near San Francisco's Dolores Park, and pastor Adam Smallcombe is chanting in front of a church crowd. Employees from companies like Apple, Lyft and Airbnb call out in agreement as they wave t...
A new book claims almost half of us have some kind of behavioural addiction involving screens or the internet, and that has worrying implications for us as social beings. Do you have a problem with the way you're using digital devices? In the living room, the car, the classroom, the bedroom and ev...
The internet is one of the most important inventions of the modern era. However, current estimates say that only 40 percent of people around the globe have access. As internet connectivity becomes ever more important, new technologies are emerging to connect the entire globe with better, ...
Today marks 28 years since I submitted my original proposal for the worldwide web. I imagined the web as an open platform that would allow everyone, everywhere to share information, access opportunities, and collaborate across geographic and cultural boundaries. In many ways, the web has l...
How Does the Blockchain Work? Blockchain is a decentralized data structure; it serves as the building block for digital currencies. For example, the famous Bitcoin relies on blockchain technology. But, how does the blockchain work, you ask? To avoid complications, put on your “accounting” h...

Here’s what happened to global temperatures after the dinosaur-killing asteroid struck The asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs wreaked apocolyptic havoc on Earth due to circumstance rather than size, scientists have argued. New research suggests the relatively minor nine-mile wide asteroid — e...
A New Internet From the birth of language to the dawn of the Internet, the technologies that push humanity forward allow us to collaborate at new scales. We agree on a common purpose, and work together in groups of increasing size and power. Today, with so many of us connected online, the goal of 3....
