The Mystery of Dark Matter

Today’s random thought is about Dark Matter. As I was sitting here at my desk thinking about all of the things that we are so close to achieving as far as space exploration, I had a wandering thought. Actually, it was more like a question....

Blocking the Sun

This is a thing. WASHINGTON — The idea of artificially cooling the planet to blunt climate change — in effect, blocking sunlight before it can warm the atmosphere — got a boost on Thursday when an influential scientific body urged the United States government to...

Only 1 Billion Years

Interesting article this morning about a simulation that shows how long the Earth has before we are no longer able to breath on it. To find that tipping point, the researchers created a simulation of Earth that factored in variables that described the climate as...

Your Body as a Battery

This is actually pretty cool stuff.

Aliens: Come and Get It!

This is my #1 reason why I think aliens will have an easy time of conquering our planet should the need arise. A vast majority of the human race whole heartedly believes (sights unseen) in completely made up and imaginary things. That makes them gullible...

Super Intelligent AIs

This is a pretty good article about why we should not create super intelligent AI technology.

Mapping The Universe

This story caught my attention for a very specific reason. Arrogance. We haven’t seen nor are we able to see anything beyond a mere fraction of the universe. For someone to think that they can “map the universe” is probably one of the most ridiculous...

The Big Bang Hang-Up

I saw an article this morning about a new telescope that is supposed to aid in our understanding of the “Big Bang” theory. You can read it here. As an official scientific community armchair quarterback, I can honestly wonder to myself out loud “who gives...

Unique prediction of ‘modified gravity’ challenges dark matter theory

I can get behind this one. Unique prediction of ‘modified gravity’ challenges dark matter theory: Here is the current theory… So, dark matter proponents theorize that most of the known universe is actually made of material that doesn’t interact with light, making it invisible and...

Self Sabotage

In a First, New England Journal of Medicine Joins Never-Trumpers By entering the political arena, The New England Journal of Medicine becomes something else and destroys its credibility in my opinion. Now, a supposedly scientific journal has political opinions? Why?

Science Fiction or Not

Sometimes, we don't really need to involve aliens in a screenplay to make the story interesting. I bring this up because my current project is one that could have easily incorporated an alien element and I'm sure it would have made for an entertaining movie....

Top 10 Brain Myths

I found this article during my morning read. I can’t say that I agree with everything 100% because of speculation on the part of the author or the “so-called” scientific expert. Here’s a small blurb about alcoholism… Even in alcoholics, alcohol use doesn’t actually result...
