Posted by in category: futurism

We recently covered the fact that Triton, the supposed underwater breathing gill, has raised over $600,000 in crowd-funding however how viable is this device and is it science fiction?

Cold Fire You Can Touch — DIY Cold Plasma Torch

Posted by in categories: climatology, futurism

Plasma is the 4th state of matter and it comes in many flavors. You probably know it from it’s greatest hits, fire and lightning, but there is a lot more to plasma than most people are aware of.

Posted by in category: futurism

New Zealand’s monster penguins, which lived 62 million years ago, had doppelgangers in Japan, the U.S. and Canada, a study published today in the Journal of Zoological Systematics and Evolutionary Research has found.

Scientists have identified striking similarities between the ’ fossilized bones and those of a group of much younger Northern Hemisphere , the plotopterids.

These similarities suggest plotopterids and ancient penguins looked very similar and might help scientists understand how birds started using their wings to swim instead of fly.
