And if so, what kind? How to cope with the low temperatures and cosmic radiation? Who lives on the edge of space? That is - who else, except for pilots and divers rare in the sky? To this question and prepared to answer one of the employees of NASA. If we try to imagine the conditions suitable for life, the stratosphere comes to mind is not right: high, dry, cold. This atmospheric layer lies over the site where the weather is formed, that is, at 10? 50 km above the Earth. The average temperature of the lower part is? 56? C, a jet stream blowing at a speed of 160 km / h Atmospheric density Read more [...]
Researchers from Kaiser Permanente and the University of California at San Francisco found a clear relationship between mortality and the length of telomeres.
Telomere research (specific areas on the end of chromosomes) were carried out in the framework of GERA and include over 675 thousand genotypic markers 100 thousand patients. These data were then analyzed together with the medical records of test.
As a result, found that people with the short telomeres are at increased risk of death. In other words, the shorter the telomeres, the higher the risk to die prematurely. Until now, scientists Read more [...]
Everything from fruit flies to dolphins need to from time to time to cover your eyes. The reason for this, apparently, is in the brain, and remains one of the mysteries of biology.At this session, we spend about a third of his life. If we deny this, we get sick. But we still do not know well, why do we need to sleep.
At first glance, the answer is obvious: to the brain and other organs to rest and recover. But why can not we have a rest, staying awake and continue to be on guard? Why we can not restore power, and watch? Mystery ...

Paleontologist, known extraordinary and controversial hypothesis suggests that paleodiktion in reality an attempt to build a nest. Cubs (larvae?) Hatched and eats its way out.Nearly 500 years ago, Leonardo da Vinci made several sketches of marine fossils, including hexagons, resembling honeycombs. This phenomenon is well known and by modern discoveries: it is called paleodiktionom and a majority is the imprint of ancient burrows in loose sediments of the sea floor. Similar formations date back to the Cambrian period (542-488 million years ago). But about the creation of the animal is not known.

Scientists are one of the units identified NASA places on earth that have the greatest impact on human energy. In Ukraine - Koktebel. A topped the list of the American Grand Canyon and Yellowstone International Biosphere Reserve. "The light of positive" as the Old Town in Prague, the Montmartre hill in Paris and the area around St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican, says TSN.
"It is remarkable that in the list of the most favorable places entered our territory - the famous arboretum" Sofiyivka "Synevir Lake and Reserve" Askania Nova. "But the real power Read more [...]
U.S. scientists have found a way to accurately predict the time of day when the person most likely to die from stroke or heart attack. This factor is determined by the particular combination of the human genotype, writes the Daily Mail. A team of researchers from the Department of Neurology, Medical Center BIDMC in Boston (MA) has found that a combination of chance, in the study of Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.The study involved 65 healthy 1.2 thousand-year-old Americans. The researchers studied the condition of these people while they sleep. In this study, they found a set Read more [...]
Despite our limited resources SETI, the most powerful of them, we would have already noticed. Yet nothing like this has not happened ...A team of astronomers led by Andrew Seeds (Andrew Siemion), including Jill Tarter (Jill Tarter), who heads the SETI, analyzed the results of the observations of the radio telescope in Green Bank. Considered 86 candidates for planetary systems discovered Space Telescope "Kepler".
The observations were made for frequencies in the 1.1-1.9 GHz (the same ones that operate cell phones), but only for the signals in a very narrow range, no wider than 5 Hz. Read more [...]
Is the planet Earth, the only one of its kind, or somewhere in the universe there are others like her? Whether there is extraterrestrial life?

It seems that the existence of life on Earth would not be possible without ... the asteroid belt, which is located far beyond the orbit of Mars.Three possible options for the evolution of the asteroid belt. Above - the planet the size of Jupiter migrates through it, scattering asteroids and suppressing the possibility of life on the inner planets. In the middle - the real situation: Jupiter slightly violates stability asteroid belt. Below - the planet does not migrate, remaining in its distant orbit, leading to the emergence of particularly massive and dense asteroid belt. Asteroids with him Read more [...]
How much will the "8 + 6 + 9?" Stop! Israeli researchers say that your brain knows the answer before you start thinking about this problem. A new study published in the journal PNAS, shows that we can unconsciously read and perform math.
Previously, the authors of other studies have found that the brain is able to perceive unconsciously separate words and numbers. Researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Hebrew University) decided to see if he can cope with more difficult tasks. For this, they conducted two experiments using a special technique when volunteers show different Read more [...]
Researchers have tried to determine the anatomical differences of the brain of the great physicist, based on a new, previously unavailable material that has recently been in their hands.If you ask, "Which one of you geniuses can call?" That Albert Einstein, to be sure, will be in the top ten, or even five, or even three. While his place in the public mind a great scientist must rather famous photograph than a subtle understanding of the theory of relativity. However, scientific and - increasingly - the cultural significance of his work can hardly be overestimated. And then another Read more [...]
Scientists in Japan have seen with my own eyes how a superconductor a phenomenon called superconductivity. And in doing so, they helped a scanning tunneling microscope. In addition, the researchers were able to see the mysterious pseudogap and find out exactly what her appearance precedes the emergence of superconductivity.
