Fast Radio Bursts Recently Detected By Astronomers Include Strongest In Over A Decade – The Inquisitr

FRB 180309’s signal-to-noise ratio stood out for being more than four times more powerful than that of the second-strongest fast radio burst on record. Astronomers discovered three new fast radio burst signals earlier this month, with one of these signals standing out as the strongest one ever recorded. According to Science Alert, the record-breaking fast […]

NASA's Hammer Spacecraft aiming to divert asteroid from hitting our planet – PerfScience

Scientists Discover New Homo Sapiens Mix With Mysterious Denisovans – HuffPost

It turns out that modern humans have a more complicated past than scientists realized. Researchers have discovered that populations of Homo sapiens swapped DNA in at least two regions of the world with a mysterious group of hominids known as Denisovans. The Denisovans appear to have made a contribution to the modern human gene pool, not […]

Astronomers are unable to explain these 3 mysterious radio bursts – The Talking Democrat

Three other mysterious signals — the famous Fast Radio Bursts (FRB) — were detected this month, and one of them breaks all records: it is the strongest ever observed by astronomers. It is, however, impossible, to tell where it comes from. Of all the unexplained things in our universe, the fast radio bursts are […]

Primitive Tools Found In Kenya Shows Evidence Of Early Innovation And Trade – Tech Times

Photographed are the primitive hand axes found in Kenya. These were likely used by early humans over 300,000 years ago, suggesting that trade and innovation 100,000 years earlier than previously believed.   ( Smithsonian | Human Origins Program ) Tool usage is one of the things that set humans apart from most of the animal […]
