  • Flower Colours are Changing in Response to Climate Change
    Yet another study sheds light on the impact of human-caused climate change. Biologists from the US have recently concluded that flower colours across the world have become darker on the UV spectrum, owing to the rapid degradation of the ozone layer in the 20th century. The paper was published in the journal Current Biology. Collecting samples from all over the world from the past 75 years, they concluded that UV-absorbing pigmentation has increased at all locations- at an average of 2% per year. Such changes come about naturally and protect the flowers, like a sunscreen, from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, which have increased …

  • Why Asimov’s Laws of Robotics Don’t Work?
    Asimov’s Laws of Robotics are concepts based on human perception of artificial intelligence, and as such, they seem completely reasonable. After all, don’t kill humans is a good rule for machines, whether they are intelligent or not. The way people saw AI robots in the 1940s completely differs from what we think about now when hearing the term. At that point in time, people were thinking about robots that had legs and arms, deadly lasers in their eyes, and wish to destroy everyone and everything in order to conquer the world. In contrast, what we see now is more like …

  • China’s New Jet Engine Prototype
    In today’s age, carbon-free emissions are seen as a viable solution for combating climate change. In traditional engines, carbon is emitted through the burning of fossil fuels. Carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide are some of the biggest contributors to climate change. The biggest causes of pollution come from factories, cars, planes, as well as shipping boats. China has come out with a new prototype jet engine that may be the solution to reducing the carbon footprint of air travel. How it Works: This new prototype works by compressing air and using microwaves to ionize the compressed air. This in turn …

  • What’s Going On With Venus and Alien Life?
    This is probably one of the most exciting discoveries of science in recent decades Let’s get to the point: Scientists have discovered signs of life in the Venusian atmosphere. About 50-60km above the surface, it is confirmed that there are anomalously higher quantities of the gas phosphine (PH3) than expected. We do not know of the origin of this gas, but all efforts to explain its presence through chemical processes have failed. On earth, the only natural way phosphine occurs is through microbes that thrive in anoxic environments (i.e., where there is a lack of oxygen). What’s interesting is that, …

  • Artificial Intelligence – a Driving Disruptive Force in e-Commerce
    E-commerce is thriving at the moment, representing 10% of total commerce and standing at nearly $2.5 trillion; and there is not a single sign of retreat. Over half a million e-stores are active worldwide, but Amazon remains the dominant market share eater, followed by some big players willing to fight for a bigger slice of the pie. However, technologies like Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are hugely disruptive and will give buyers a much greater bargaining power than ever before, probably causing e-commerce as we know it to end. Those not fully prepared for the disruptive technology will suffer …

  • Occam’s Razor Principle in Science
    What is Occam’s Razor? The more assumptions you have to make, that is more unlikely an explanation Wikipedia Here is an example: x 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 y 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 64 81 ? Solve this Okay, now it’s your turn. What do you think the answer is? You probably understood the pattern from the beginning and have a clear idea which number should go under the 10. But let’s try it this way. You got the same Table, but this time there are answers a, b and c. a) 100 (Every …

  • VENUS – THE HOTTEST PLANET IN SOLAR SYSTEM?
    Named after the Roman Goddess of Beauty and Love, Venus is the second planet from the sun in our solar system. Although it is second from the sun, it is the hottest planet is the solar system. Mercury being closest to the sun is not hottest. The simplest answer to this is ‘due to the greenhouse effect’. Mercury’s Atmosphere Compared to Venus, the atmosphere of mercury is really thin. It is so thinner, that the value atmospheric pressure on its surface is not even 1 Pascal. It constitutes atomic oxygen, atomic hydrogen, helium, sodium, magnesium, etc. Due to lack of …

  • DEVELOPING “SPACE EXPLORATION TECHNOLOGIES” AND MAKING MARS A LIVEABLE PLACE
    Since the establishment of human civilization, we wondered if there is a life in the Universe other than on Earth and do aliens exist. If they do, where are they? With the development of science and technology, the search for answers to this question has accelerated. We made giant telescopes, sent signals into space, launched spacecraft. Until now, we have not really found any signs of aliens (unless we count the top-secret events in Area 51, now Area 59). Brief History of Space Exploration We are human, and our sense of curiosity will never end due to our nature. We …

  • Should we ban a high consumption of resources, as in an eco-dictatorship?
    Introduction Ecofascism[1] is slowly but surely getting into our vocabulary and the question “Should we ban a high consumption of resources as in an eco-dictatorship” is asked more frequently. There are many facts and speculations about this subject, but the truth is that nobody really knows. How will alternative production of energy affect people who work in an energetic industry? Is the consumption of eco-friendly products going to save the Earth but ruin our economic system? Is a healthier lifestyle worth living in a world without free will? After all, is it possible to do something like that? [1] Eco-fascism …

  • Biomimicry, Bionics and Airplanes
    Introduction Few months ago, I had to do a prasentation on this topic for school. It was quite hard to find information, so I decided to put all of my research on this blog. Airplanes are not only the safest and fastest way of traveling, but it is also one of the favourite ways of travel. Tousands of people travel with them daily, wather because of the bussines or travel. They solved the problem of long distance traveling that was earlier on connected with long amount of time. Aircraft industry made travel easy as possible. I will talk about: air …
