Being left-handed doesn’t mean you are right-brained — so what does it mean?

Being left-handed doesn’t mean you are right-brained — so what does it mean?

There have been plenty of claims about what being left-handed means, and whether it changes the type of person someone is – but the truth is something of an enigma. Myths about handedness appear year after year, but researchers have yet to uncover all of what it means to be left-handed.

How Habitable is Titan? NASA is Sending the Titan Dragonfly Helicopter to Find Out

How Habitable is Titan? NASA is Sending the Titan Dragonfly Helicopter to Find Out

There are few places in the Solar System which are as fascinating as Saturn’s moon Titan. It’s a world with a thicker atmosphere than Earth. Where it’s so cold that it rains ammonia, forming lakes, rivers and seas. Where water ice forms mountains. 

Why Is The Moon’s South Pole So Important? It’s All About Water

Why Is The Moon’s South Pole So Important? It’s All About Water

As NASA prepares to return to the Moon by 2024 as part of its Artemis program, the agency is focusing its efforts on exploring the Moon’s polar regions. These are areas of the Moon which seem to have a lot of water mixed in with the regolith.

Higher vitamin A intake linked to lower skin cancer risk

Higher vitamin A intake linked to lower skin cancer risk

Researchers found that people who ate high levels of vitamin A were 17 percent less likely to get the second-most-common type of skin cancer years later.

Dead planets can ‘broadcast’ for up to a billion years

Dead planets can ‘broadcast’ for up to a billion years

In new research led by the University of Warwick, scientists have determined the best candidate remnant stars to search for relics of planets, based upon the likelihood of the stars hosting surviving planetary cores and the strength of the radio signal that we can tune in to.

New class of materials could enhance supercapacitors and increase their and make them less flammable. In addition if used to supplement battery systems in EV’s they could provide a power boost

The Milky Way’s Black Hole Just Flared, Growing 75 Times as Bright for a Few Hours!

The Milky Way’s Black Hole Just Flared, Growing 75 Times as Bright for a Few Hours!

Even though the black hole at the center of the Milky Way is a monster, it’s still rather quiet. Called Sagittarius A*, it’s about 4.6 million times more massive than our Sun. Usually, it’s a brooding behemoth. But scientists observing Sgr. A* with the Keck Telescope just watched as its brightness bloomed to over 75 times normal for a few hours.

Can plants think? They could one day force us to change our definition of intelligence

Can plants think? They could one day force us to change our definition of intelligence

Some might balk at the idea that plants made of roots, stems and leaves could have intelligence or consciousness. But scientists have actually been hotly debating this idea for decades.

Do electronic devices like smartphones make it harder for us to grasp science?

Do electronic devices like smartphones make it harder for us to grasp science?

Overindulgent interaction with electronic devices like smartphones and tablets may be related to weaker activity in areas of the brain that are key to understanding scientific texts, say researchers.

Traces of One of the Oldest Stars in the Universe Found Inside Another Star!

Traces of One of the Oldest Stars in the Universe Found Inside Another Star!

Despite all we know about the formation and evolution of the Universe, the very early days are still kind of mysterious. With our knowledge of physics we can shed some light on the nature of the earliest stars, even though they’re almost certainly long gone.

Astronomers Uncover Dozens of Previously Unknown Ancient and Massive Galaxies

Astronomers Uncover Dozens of Previously Unknown Ancient and Massive Galaxies

For decades, astronomers have been trying to see as far as they can into the deep Universe. By observing the cosmos as it was shortly after the Big Bang, astrophysicists and cosmologists hope to learn all they can about the early formation of the Universe and its subsequent evolution. Thanks to instruments like the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have been able to see parts of the Universe that were previously inaccessible.

Virtual 'Universe Machine' Sheds Light on Galaxy Evolution

Virtual 'Universe Machine' Sheds Light on Galaxy Evolution

By creating millions of virtual universes and comparing them to observations of actual galaxies, a University of Arizona-led research team has made discoveries that present a powerful new approach for studying galaxy formation.

Maybe Dark Matter is Warm, Not Cold

Maybe Dark Matter is Warm, Not Cold

Since the “Golden Age of General Relativity” in the 1960s, scientists have held that much of the Universe consists of a mysterious invisible mass known as “Dark Matter“. Since then, scientists have attempted to resolve this mystery with a double-pronged approach. On the one hand, astrophysicists have attempted to find a candidate particle that could account for this mass.

Kepler’s forgotten ideas about symmetry help explain spiral galaxies without the need for dark matter – new research

Kepler’s forgotten ideas about symmetry help explain spiral galaxies without the need for dark matter – new research

The 17th-century astronomer Johannes Kepler was the first to muse about the structure of snowflakes. Why are they so symmetrical? How does one side know how long the opposite side has grown? Kepler thought it was all down to what we would now call a “morphogenic field” – that things want to have the form they have. Science has since discounted this idea. But the question of why snowflakes and similar structures are so symmetrical is nevertheless not entirely understood.
