The Doomsday Clock Scary History

The Doomsday Clock. It’s two minutes to midnight. Those words probably make you shiver, just a little bit, because bad things always happen at midnight. And midnight on the Doomsday Clock is the baddest of the bad, the hour of the apocalypse. That’s right, the end of the world. Boom. Everyone dies. But hey, cheer up. When

If The Universe Is Teeming With Aliens Then Where Is Everybody?

If the Universe is teeming with aliens then where is everybody? It’s one of the biggest conundrums in the Universe, known as the Fermi Paradox. That means that if the Universe is so conducive to life, and if there are so many opportunities for it within our galaxy alone, why isn’t there any evidence (outside of the

Dark Matter: Is It Right In Front Of Us?

Dark Matter. We know, pretty simply, how stars work. We know how much light they give off, and that’s very closely related to their mass. Brighter stars are more massive; dimmer stars are less so. So when we look at an entire galaxy, what we’re really measuring is all of the light coming from the stars in

Did Abraham Lincoln Order The Execution Of 38 Dakota Fighters?

Abraham Lincoln Order. That claim is largely accurate, but it’s also misleading; it omits to mention that although Abraham Lincoln did approve 39 death sentences, he also prevented the hangings of 264 other Native Americans by commuting their death sentences. It also fails to make it clear that the executions were ordered by a military

Three Prominent Types Of Aliens Exposed

Aliens exposed. We don’t really know if aliens actually exist. But, over time, it has become clear that there were three different types. So each type were given names in order to categorize and simplify their details. The main kinds of aliens that most people speak of today are the Greys, the Reptilians, and the

A new discovery of pterosaur eggs and fossils, found in China, gives us a complete look at the early flying reptiles. Researchers found at least 215 eggs and about 16 containing traces of embryos. ‘We want to call this region Pterosaur Eden. They swooped and whirled across the sky, hunting for fish. Adult Pterosaurs of the Hamipterus

Pollution creates a deadly aftermath. In 2015, about one in six of the deaths around the world were linked to pollution of some kind, a new report has found. “Pollution is much more than an environmental challenge. It is a profound and pervasive threat that affects many aspects of human health and wellbeing,” Philip Landrigan says

Human Gene Editing Is Leaving Ethics Dangerously Far Behind

In a breakthrough scientists successfully did gene editing of a human embryo to eliminate a dangerous gene mutation. The birth of an actual baby with genes selected by technological means hasn’t happened yet, but that is on the way — and soon. Science and technological capacity are racing ahead of ethics, safety regulations and our understanding

Things About Ancient Egypt That Still Can’t Be Explained

There are things about ancient Egypt that still can’t be explained. Few civilizations have a more mysterious reputation than ancient Egypt. But the point of a mystery is to solve it, and over the years we’ve researched and studied our way to learning a lot about the land of hieroglyphs and holy cats. But there’s still

Unexplained Deep Space Mysteries

Unexplained deep space mysteries. The universe contains some much stranger, much larger, and much more terrifying mysteries than you ever thought to be afraid of. The Travelling Blackhole Black holes are bad news, but here’s one way to make them worse: send them flying across space. That’s apparently what happened to one particularly large black

Why People Don’t Believe That The Moon Landing Happened

No conspiracy theory has captured the imagination quite like that time we faked the moon landing. That’s right, we never landed on the moon. According to a 1999 Gallup poll, 6% of Americans thought the moon landings were fake, and 5% said they weren’t sure. So what gives? Why would otherwise normal, critically thinking adults believe

The Strange History Of Atlantis

Atlantis! The name alone is enough to invoke images of mermaids, bubble cities, sunken ruins, and an ancient, technologically advanced situation that suffered ruin at the whims of the gods or their own hubris. But where did the idea of Atlantis come from? Could it have been a real place, or do its origins lie

Did The Aliens Accidentally Killed Themselves?

aliens killed themselves

Did the aliens accidentally kill themselves? With at least 100 billion planets in the Milky Way, you’d think at least one would have produced a race of intelligent alien beings. So how come we’ve never seen signs of space aliens even after decades of SETI (search for extraterrestrial intelligence) research? Scientists have long puzzled over

Is Our World A Simulation?

Do we live in a simulation? When Elon Musk isn’t outlining plans to use his massive rocket to leave a decaying Planet Earth and colonize Mars, he sometimes talks about his belief that Earth isn’t even real and we probably live in a computer simulation. “There’s a billion to one chance we’re living in base
