Babies as young as six months are able to make predictions based on the probability that, according to the authors of a recent study, the higher level of thinking than was previously thought. If the children are as young as seven months show different expressions of the human face, then they, as adults, the longest look at a frightening face, which, according to scientists, shows early signs of the data associated with the emotions.Any parent knows that copying the behavior of the child, including clapping their hands, gives him pleasure. Imidzhingovaya technology confirmed that this kind of Read more [...]
Scientists have created the first cells that can kill cancerous tumors. This dramatic breakthrough was made by scientists in Japan. According to them, the development of this technology paves the way for the creation of cells that can be directly administered to cancer patients.Such cells (T-cells) occur in small amounts in our bodies, but it is hoped that the injection of these cells in large amounts will produce turbo-charge the immune system.To create a new type of cell scientists first had to reprogram the T-cells that specialize in killing a certain type of cancer, the other type of cells, Read more [...]
01/08/2013 Specialists of the Institute of Medical and Biological Problems, Russian Academy of Sciences will hold about 80 biological experiments in space during the project "Bion-M» 1 in the spring of 2013, the director of the institute, Igor Ushakov. Tentative launch date of the experiment "Bion-M" 1 - April 15-25, 2013.A feature of this experiment, compared to previous launches "Bion", will be that scientific data will be placed not only in the satellite, but also on its outer side, which will in part to test the hypothesis of panspermia, ie entry of life on Earth Read more [...]
01/08/2013 On this day, January 8, 1851 physicist Jean Bernard Léon Foucault by constructing his unit received proof that the Earth rotates.
Jean Bernard Leon Foucault designed a device consisting of a five-kilogram brass ball, suspended from the ceiling by steel wire 2 meters long.
Shake of the ball, Foucault observed rotation of the swing plane to a few degrees. Although no reason for this was not. Thus, Foucault concluded, that there is nothing other than the rotation of the Earth.
At two o'clock in the morning Foucault recorded his observations in the log. And later, on February 3 Read more [...]
Alexander Byalko Candidate of Sciences, says that he has to say about today's incident based on available data. Until you have investigated, there are two versions of what happened: 1) Meteorite 2) We are on our heads falls the same debris.
Fffu ...-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo!! Shot up into the sky and spray plume of steam. Fresh air filled the lungs powerful and brilliant spin whale briefly show on the surface, again disappeared in the waves. FFF-oo-oo-oo-oo! FFF-oo-oo-oo-xxxx! - Exhaled noisily near relatives, and the waves were closing and made way over their glossy bodies. A small group of ancient whales slowly skirted shallow water.
Peaceful giants exchanged tinkling trills, habitually listening to the sea, and from afar the voices of other whales. Large old male brought up the rear, and there seemed no force on earth that could Read more [...]
Giant shark species Cetorhinus maximus were found off the west coast of Africa. Shark of this species reach 10 meters or more in the din, and weigh more than 4 tons. Why they appeared in these places are not their habitats, scientists do not know. New to the ecosystem species of sharks was found at a distance of about 3,000 kilometers off the coast of Senegal. Initially it was thought that basking sharks do not exist in those waters. But a new discovery, challenge previous findings of science.
The Irish team of researchers in collaboration with scientists at Queen's University of Belfast, Read more [...]
Dark energy, the mysterious substance that speeds up, according to scientists, the expansion of the universe actually exists. So says a team of astronomers from the Portsmouth (England) and the University of Munich.
After a two-year study, led by Tommaso Dzhannantonio (Tommaso Giannantonio) and Robert Krittendenom (Robert Crittenden), researchers concluded that the probability of the existence of dark energy is 99.996%.
Prof. Bob Nichol (Bob Nichol), a member of the Portsmouth team, said: "Dark energy is one of the great mysteries of Nature today, so it is not surprising that so many researchers Read more [...]
Scientists have managed to do something incredible: they were able to cool below the temperature of the substance, which is still considered the absolute minimum. Most modern textbooks on physics absolute zero degrees Kelvin or minus 273.15 degrees Celsius is the lowest possible temperature, as if it even the lightest element - hydrogen - loses its mobility, that is, figuratively speaking, is frozen.
Strangely enough, but one of the ways to study the negative temperature is infinitely strong heating of the substance. This unusual, bordering on the fantastic, the approach allows the theory to Read more [...]
Carcinogens – are poisons that kill us slowly. Chemicals which cause deadly disease – cancer. We eat carcinogens along with sausages, chips, candy, soda and juice. We incorrectly cook, fry in the wrong oil and heat up food at too high a temperature. Where most of carcinogens on what oil to fry potatoes, and why beef sausage carcinogens than in chicken.
Newborn not phonetically naïve, as previously thought. New research has shown that most of the sounds of the native language babies learn in the first hours after birth.
The experiment took place under the direction of Christine Moon, professor of psychology at Pacific Lutheran University. After a series of observations, scientists have come to the conclusion that young babies are showing increased interest in the vowel sounds from other languages.
"For more than 30 years ago, researchers discovered that the child begins to learn more in the perinatal period, listening to the voice of the Read more [...]
The extremely large telescope European (European Extremely Large Telescope - ELT) will begin to study the gas to distant planets in the next decade. The main purpose of the project - to find out if there is oxygen.
Modern telescopes can investigate only the so-called gas giants - huge planet with no solid surface. In our solar system, these are only two - Jupiter and Saturn. Get data from more distant and smaller in size of celestial bodies is impossible.
It is for this purpose and will be built ELT. It is planned to be installed on the mountain Armazon, in the center of the Chilean Atacama Read more [...]
From the tribe of pygmies "Twa" were the owners of the unique legs that enable them to climb trees is not worse than chimps - it is possible that a similar arrangement of muscles at the same time allowing our ancestors to live in savannas and forests, according to a paper published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences."Australopithecus afarensis had arched rigid ankle and foot, not prehensile. These anatomical features of their feet often interpreted as evidence that they were not adapted to climbing trees, and the fact that they lived on the plains of Read more [...]
Australian researchers have found that brain shark has many similarities with the human. The authorities hope to use this information in the fight against predators. Over the past year off the coast of Australia, the cases of white sharks attack on surfers and swimmers.
During the ten months of this year on the west coast of Australia recorded five deaths. The government has announced drastic measures against sharks. Money, in particular, stand out for scientific research, which aims - to find effective ways to ward off predators from the shore.
Researcher at the University of Western Australia Read more [...]
Scientists continue to search for the genes that make people able to colonize the land. One of the mutations associated with more effective regulators in warm and humid climate, and with a beautiful female breast.How does one become the premier on the planet? Identify the genetic changes that have made this possible - one of the most serious problems in evolutionary biology.
And developed a method that allows to reconstruct the genetic history of our species in detail, step by step, in a few tens of thousands of years.

We believe it is a negative emotion, but when used properly, anger can help improve health, provide career growth, healthier relationships with people, and even the whole society will lead to a brighter future."Anyone can become angry - that is easy, but be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time with the right purpose and in the right way is not easy and is not given to everyone."
Since more than two thousand years ago, Aristotle wrote in his classic work on the art of rhetoric. His words do not match some of the modern concept of anger. Today we tend to Read more [...]
How did you find the research team led by scientists from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, a powerful earthquake of magnitude 8 to 8.5 left distinct "scars" in the central part of the Himalayas.
This discovery could have far-reaching consequences for the region, population density, which is similar to those in New York. According to Professor Paul Trappone, the existence of similar earthquakes in the past means that in future earthquakes of the same strength may occur again, especially in areas where earthquakes predyduschh traces were found.

A giant balloon filled with helium, drifting over Antarctica, at an altitude of about 36 kilometers. Launched on Christmas Day, he is hypersensitive telescope BLAST (Balloon-borne Large Aperture Submillimeter Telescope) with almost two-meter mirror, which is measured in submillimetre light waves coming from the area of the so-called star nurseries in our Milky Way.
This "Christmas start" - the last of five research program on the study of our galaxy. Scientists hope that in this last mission BLAST show why there are so few stars are born. After a test flight in 2003 in New Mexico and Read more [...]
The study, conducted by Oxford scientists have shown that higher animals can experience different emotions. Animals such as chimpanzees, rats, dogs and cats can decide for themselves what they have - good or bad. Mark Roulendz, who led the study, said that because of the moral principles of the animals of the commitments of people to take fewer substantially. However, many scientists do not agree with the view Roulendza, reports Globalscience. In their view, the fact that for many mammals is characterized by a complex behavior, does not prove the existence of morality in animals, affecting Read more [...]
On Friday at 23.25 MSK, he flies at a minimum distance from Earth - about 27.7 thousand kilometers from the surface. It is the largest celestial body, which would bring to the Earth so close on record.Gravitational effect of the Earth could trigger "earthquake" on the asteroid 2012 DA14, who on Friday will fly very close to our planet - the scientists hope to detect traces of these seismic waves at the surface of the asteroid, according to NASA.
Asteroid 2012 DA14 size of 45 meters was opened in February 2012, the Spanish astronomers. On Friday at 23.25 MSK, he flies at a minimum distance Read more [...]
