We are driven to determine if there is “truth”. If we have all the pieces, they can fit together and build bridges for better understanding.
The team will gather evidence and analyze data from unexplained phenomena in the sky from a scientific point of view to determine whether they are natural or require another explanation. The nine-month study begins in the fall and the results will be shared with the public.
“I have spent most of my career as a cosmologist. I can tell you we don’t know what makes up 95% of the universe, “said astronomer David Speargel, who will lead the team.
To cover you, here are some unusual things we learned this week.
Around the universe
Mysterious rapid radio explosions have left astronomers in a state of perplexity because they do not understand the cause of the milliseconds of light in space.
In repeated explosions the celestial body constantly emits weak radio waves. To do this, only a rapid radio explosion is known, which leads astronomers to wonder if there are multiple types of these unexplained phenomena.
It’s a living thing.
For the first time, scientists have learned how to create human-like skin with a robotic finger.
According to researchers, this progress is one step closer to making robots look and feel like living creatures.
Researchers are interested in adding a vascular system that can help the skin maintain itself, grow nails and even sweat. Having human hands one day allows robots to help us with incredible work.
Meet Fernando. He’s a bit older in the Galapagos, and we wouldn’t blame you if you sang a version of ABBA’s “Fernando” in his honor.
The only female baby tortoise living on Fernandina Island in the Galাপpagos Islands was discovered in 2019. His discovery shocked scientists because they believed that the Fernandina tortoise was extinct, especially because of the island’s highly active volcanoes.
A new genetic study has revealed that Fernanda is actually a native species of her island, especially when compared to the DNA of a male tortoise sample taken from the island in 1906.
The other world
The Creativity Helicopter fights the foggy shadows of winter on Mars.
The bones of an animal that lived 125 million years ago were probably a newly discovered species. But scientists need more information to make decisions.
