Russian Biophysics confirm that there is an aura. The human body is really capable of emitting rays in the visible range.
MYSTERIOUS CIYANIETo me, science correspondent of the "Komsomolskaya Pravda", have always thought that the so-called aura - Lights, supposedly around the body of each person - have come up with mysticism and charlatans. And in fact, nothing like this. But the other day we received a letter to the editor from a serious scholar, who argued that people and really shine.- We are dealing with an unusual physical phenomenon - explained to me, Doctor of Biological Sciences, Read more [...]
16/12/2012 It turns out that if you disable only one gene called Bcl11a adaptive immune system cells cease to grow and fight bacteria and other pathogens.
The adaptive immune system is very important because it protects a person from a recurrence of various infectious diseases. It is thanks to this system, all vaccines are effective and conquered many diseases, such as, for example, polio. In addition, the immune system recognizes it similar strains, such as influenza, a new strain of the disease milder. The discovery of a gene that can turn on and off the adaptive immune system, can be as Read more [...]
16/12/2012 While the research unit Curiosity verify the origin of the organic compounds found them on the surface of the red planet, experts of the National Space Administration (NASA), seriously think about colonization. His version of the colonization of the planet Mars expert expressed from Ames Research Center Chris McKay, who believes that this is not a fantasy, but a reality, but of course, very far away. The scientist said that the first step is to increase the temperature of the planet, and create an atmosphere for her.
But after that, the surface of Mars to plant trees, which absorb Read more [...]
16/12/2012 Due to global warming and melting ice in the Arctic and Antarctic scientists propose to resolve this issue once and for all. They offer frozen Arctic, which, however, will bypass the huge costs. This idea looks fantastic, but the environmental situation is on the brink of disaster. In the Arctic Ocean, the amount of ice mass in September fell to historically low levels. And now the sea-ice cover is only 50% of the area, which was recorded in 80 years. You can saturate the atmosphere with reflective particles, which reduces the penetration of sunlight at the North Pole. This should Read more [...]
Professor of Geology in the Network posted a video that showed clearly how the earth was millions of years ago, and what changes are expected in the future continents. Ron Blakey from Northern Arizona University, posted the clip in order to demonstrate how the location and shape of the Earth's continents have changed over the last 600 million years. The video also presents predictions on how they will change over the next hundred million years, reports Globalscience. The scientist noted that the compilation of these paleogeographic maps it took him many years. He studied thousands of Read more [...]
Science is traditionally perceived as a serious and stern, where jokes have a place only in a part of the Ig Nobel premiiili ironic books "Physicists are joking." The more difficult to suspect of special fun-loving philosophers. However, destroying all the stereotypes of the Faculty of Philosophy was became the cradle of a new scientific discipline, called "gelalogiya" proposed 10 years ago, PhD, Senior Lecturer, Sergey Troitsky. "Founding father" of the new scientific discipline in the past in the St. Petersburg regional press center "RIA Novosti" club Read more [...]
Scientists have not abandoned their attempts to find out whether our universe is just a semblance of a computer simulation, as in the movie "The Matrix." There is a method of research, which, in their opinion, will help to set it up.
It is based on building a complex model, which in fact would constitute a program-simulation. And by comparing some of the characteristics of this artificial program with those in the real universe could determine whether we are the product of multi-level numerical combinations.
The problem is scale. While scientists are able to build such a model Read more [...]
16/12/2012 Classic doomsday scenario, replicated Hollywood, assumes very often fall to Earth a giant asteroid, provoking horrific disasters. Astronomers have wondered how likely it?
Similar events have occurred in the history of our planet - a large meteorite fell in Mexico 65 million years ago, and is thought by some scholars, killed the dinosaurs, the Tunguska meteorite struck the imagination of mankind most recently in the 20th century.
Astronomers believe that no object in size from one to ten kilometers in diameter can not fly close to Earth. Modern surveillance program celestial bodies Read more [...]

12/14/2012 Studying alcohol molecules located in a distant galaxy, the astronomers were able to determine that a fundamental constant of nature has not changed over the lifetime of the universe. This constant - the ratio of the mass of the proton to electron mass - has changed just one one hundred thousandth of a percent in the last 7 billion years, has been observed.Scientists have been able to fix it, sending a 100-meter Effelsberg radio telescope at a distant galaxy that lies within 7 billion light-years away. Telescope looking for special spectral features, which should be responsible Read more [...]
The question of whether to send extraterrestrial civilizations rays of friendship and mutually beneficial cooperation (or the opposite), can be expressed in the language of numbers, I'm sure a mathematician from Austria.Sending messages in open space - "active SETI» - business, strictly speaking, risky. We do not know whether the friendly people who get the message, as well as the extent to which it is they do not have enough Lebensraum. That's why some stakeholders, including milneonera Stephen Hawking, oppose such a risky game with many variables. Others, however, ask a reasonable Read more [...]
Monkey, which goes out to hunt at night, and its bite is poisonous enough to kill a person can - was discovered by scientists in Borneo. Beware! Scientists warn that these primates can peddle unaware that under the guise of the form "Slow Lori" they sell "toxic killer." The new species, which is one of the types of "slow loris", produces venom from glands located on the elbows. Before the attack, the monkey gathering there poison in her mouth and then biting attack victims who die from the poison. Their bite is deadly to humans because it can cause anaphylactic Read more [...]
Tetrahedron in the structure of water. A water molecule is shown hinge model, and neighboring atoms forming hydrogen bonds - in the form of clouds of electrons.Scientists conducted a simulation of the behavior of the hydrogen bonds in water, and found that in spite of the recently discovered fluctuations, the structure can still be tetrahedral. The paper was published in the journal Nature Communication, and its website a summary of results Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz.Tetrahedral local structure of water has been proposed over 100 years ago. It implies a connection to each of the Read more [...]

Women are always complaining that they have your arms and legs. Doctors are convinced that it is a feature of the body, caused by hormonal level. Heat receptors are an inch from the surface of the skin, says Professor Michael Tipton of the University of Portsmouth.Through capillary blood skin usually maintain a comfortable temperature. But in women, depending on the level of estrogen the body temperature fluctuates, as it controls the peripheral vessels. The more of the hormone in the blood, the higher the sensitivity of blood vessels to the temperature. This writes MedDaily. When cold receptors Read more [...]

12/13/2012 Scientists have developed a new view of biological time - it turned out that for many problems while conveniently presented not as the axis, and as a two-dimensional surface in three dimensions. The new approach now appears in the form of a two-dimensional surface, given as follows. There is a central axis, which is the usual time. Along this axis, "rides" perpendicular vector rotating with a large period of 24 hours, to which is added the periods of processes such as breathing and heartbeat. As a result of the end of the vector describes a curve in space, which can be viewed Read more [...]
