Humans have long been shaping Earth’s landscape, but now scientists know we can shape our near-space environment as well. A certain type of communications — very low frequency, or VLF, radio communications — have been found to interact with...
The use of salt water as a mouthwash is a relatively common practice in many places around the world. Combining a small amount of warm water with common table salt is considered helpful for killing bacteria in the mouth, as well as helping to wash...
Scientists are not yet satisfied with the theory behind evolution of earth which states that the planet developed as a result of collision of asteroids, since the composition of Earth does not resemble the composition of meteorite, which are small...
Red blood cells in humans differ from those of many animals in that they do not have nuclei. Most animals, besides mammals, have nuclei in their mature red blood cells. Mature mammalian red blood cells lose their nucleus and organelles in order to...
There are days that shook the world. It happened beyond the human control. Some of them are:April 26, 1986 – The Chernobyl disaster. This incident considered as the worst nuclear plant destruction in the human and nuclear history. It released...

Beijing, May 22 (IANS) Beijing's air quality has improved as the vote to decide the 2022 Winter Olympics host city is less than three months away. Beijing Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau (BMEPB) announced on Thursday that thanks to the capital's continuous air pollution control efforts and favourable weather conditions, Beijing's air quality has improved in the last four months, with the average density of PM 2.5 (airborne particles smaller than 2.5 microns in diameter) dropping...

London, July 15 (IANS) Scientists are close to finding a way to re-define the kilogram in terms of a mathematical constant instead of being based on a cylinder. The research has been done by a team of Italian scientists. They are close to finding a new definition of the kilo-based on Planck's constant, which represents the size of the quanta in quantum physics and is as reliable as a mathematical constant as the speed of light in a vacuum, the Independent reported on Wednesday. However, ...

By N.B. Nair Mumbai, Jan 11 (IANS) High-energy physics in India is set for a Rs.1,500 crore ($235 million) boost in the shape of a laboratory for studying neutrinos - subatomic particles produced by the decay of radioactive elements in the atmosphere, a project that aims to make this country a global hub for high-end scientific experiments. The India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) project has been cleared by the union cabinet, its director, Naba K. Mondal, said. The underground...
