Together the studies help to explain why sexual reproduction amongst all creatures on Earth is so widespread, and yet why some animal, fish, bacteria, and insect species can reproduce ...

Time Travel Fund is a real company. Their concept is that people living far into the future will be one day able to ‘retrieve’ you from your current frame of reference (their past - your present) and bring you into the future (their present - your future).

After the man explained this meant that his community existed without the use of motors or motorized technology, (no electricity, no telephones, no motor vehicles, etc), Brende was intrigued, and found himself proposing that he live with the community for 18 months to research ‘the mini...

Through the NASA ‘Reduced Gravity Student Flight Opportunities Program’, four juniors from Duke University were given the chance to perform a study aboard NASA’s ‘KC-135A’ (aka the "Vomit Comet").

The four students designed and carried out experiments on the effects of microgravity on a subject of their choosing whilst living on board the craft.

They opened a blog entitled "Duke's Vomit Comet" to follow their adventures to and provide information about their experiments. It’s hardly ext...
