Homo sapiens Direct Ancestors Migrated Out of Africa 2 million years ago

There has been a constant stream of discoveries in the last twelve months which suggest a need to move back the dates for our early ancestor’s migration out of Africa. Modern human fossils uncovered in Asia, as well as new DNA studies, have pushed back the occupation of that continent from 60,000 to 120,000 years ago. Stone tools and hominin fossils discoveries suggest that archaic Homo sapiens inhabited parts of Eurasia well before 200,000 years ago, at least 300,000 to 400,000 years ago.

Flood myth and megalithic sites around the world

Each year science and modern technic give us a better understanding of our recent past. For example, scientists are now capable of giving a precise evolution of Earth climate and sea levels from 20,000 years ago and up to now. And when combined with archaeology, this knowledge opens a new understanding of our ancient past. In a recent conference, Graham Hancock pointed out the interesting link between the presence of flood Myth all around the world and the end of the last Ice age which occurs nearly 14,500 years ago.

Why is everything so dark?

When something seems a little mysterious or we just don’t understand what is going on we like to describe it with the adjective ‘dark’.

Scientists created an acoustic tractor beam

It is remarkable what can be achieved with acoustic waves. During the last two decades, scientists have demonstrated photon creation with the sonoluminescence effect, acoustic levitation and sound hologram. Acoustic vortices are another interesting effect. They have been extensively studied for their ability to trap particles and recently a team achieved the stable three-dimensional trapping of Rayleigh particles (i.e., particle with a radius smaller than the wavelength a ≪ λ).

Watch live: SpaceX’s colossal Falcon Heavy may finally fly today

KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLORIDA—Today may finally be the day. After nearly a decade of development, the Falcon Heavy has finally reached the launch pad and undergone all of its preflight tests. All that remains is to fuel the three boosters and light 27 engines.

Whirling plane of satellite galaxies challenges cosmological cold dark matter model

The cosmological cold dark matter model assumes that most satellite galaxy systems are close to isotropic – that is with no preferred direction. Now, in a recently published paper, a team of astronomers from the university of Irvine, California, have just challenged the validity of such a model.

Hydrodynamic Simulation Predicts Large-Scale Cosmic Web in High Structural Detail

Novel computational methods have helped create the most information-packed universe-scale simulation ever produced. The new tool provides fresh insights into how black holes influence the distribution of dark matter, how heavy elements are produced and distributed throughout the cosmos, and where magnetic fields originate.

Resolved structure of a galactic active nucleus

Galactic nuclei host supermassive black holes and some of them are so bright that the central region can be more luminous than the remaining galaxy light. Recently, a team from Taiwan showed a study addressing the numerous unresolved structural issues about these inner regions, including how gas flows to, from, and between the two merging nuclei and precisely which subregions are responsible for the dominant luminosity sources.

Panpsychism: theories that consciousness is integral to cosmos at the most fundamental level gaining credibility

Conventionally consciousness is explained as emerging from electrochemical computational activity of cells in complex neural networks. The continued inability of the neurocomputational model to explain how consciousness emerges in this way has renewed investigations into deeper dynamics underlying consciousness that may place it as an integral element of fundamental natural processes.

Unified origin of high-energy cosmic particles could be black hole jets

Cosmic rays can mean any high energy from the cosmos and were only referred to as rays for historical reasons – in that they thought cosmic rays were electromagnetic radiation. However generally cosmic rays refer to high energy particles with mass whereas high energy in the form of gamma rays and/or X-rays are photons.

A New Information Engine is Pushing the Boundaries of Thermodynamics

Physicists have created a device that has experimentally exceeded the conventional second law of thermodynamics. The device is an information engine, which converts information into work, and it is the first such engine to conform to a newly proposed “generalized” second law of thermodynamics.

An Earth-size telescope to observe supermassive black hole

Solving the mysteries of black holes is a long-standing goal in astrophysics. To achieve that, one of the main difficulties is to be able to observe closely the immediate environment of the black hole with a high angular resolution. Such observations could lead to images of strong gravity effects that are expected near a black hole, and to the direct detection of dynamics near the black hole as matter orbits at near light speeds. These observations would allow to verify Einstein theory and open a new chapter in the study of general relativity in the strong field regime.

New discoveries challenging existing models of black holes

Black holes are very intriguing objects and while having been observed for more than 50 years are still a source of mysteries for astrophysicists. Every new study shows we understand even less about them than we thought we did. One of the difficulties is that they are very difficult to observe and only indirect observations can help us understand their dynamic.
