Why San Francisco felt like the set of a sci-fi flick

On Sept. 9, many West Coast residents looked out their windows and witnessed a post-apocalyptic landscape: silhouetted cars, buildings and people bathed in an overpowering orange light that looked like a jacked-up sunset.The scientific explanation for what people were seeing was pretty straightforward. On a clear day, the sky owes its blue color to smaller atmospheric particles scattering the relatively short wavelengths of blue light waves from the sun. An atmosphere filled with larger particle...

New tardigrade species withstands lethal UV radiation thanks to fluorescent 'shield'

Apparently, some water bears can even beat extreme UV light.It may be an adaptation to the summer heat in India.Special under-skin pigments neutralize harmful rays. Many of us consider ourselves tardigrade, or "water bear" fans. These microscopic buggers — actually not bugs at all but their own distinct phylum with over 1,000 members — are unbelievably hardy in spite of their diminutive stature: They range from just 0.5 to 1 millimeter in length.Tardigrades survive in all sorts of conditions th...

Can you solve what an MIT professor once called 'the hardest logic puzzle ever'?

Logician Raymond Smullyan devised tons of logic puzzles, but one was declared by another philosopher to be the hardest of all time.The problem, also known as the Three Gods Problem, is solvable, even if it doesn't seem to be.It depends on using complex questions to assure that any answer given is useful. Despite the general dislike of mathematics that most profess to have, many people enjoy logic puzzles. This is strange, as many logic puzzles are just variations of math problems. Gleefully ign...

How do pandemics end? History suggests diseases fade but are almost never truly gone

When will the pandemic end? All these months in, with over 37 million COVID-19 cases and more than 1 million deaths globally, you may be wondering, with increasing exasperation, how long this will continue.Since the beginning of the pandemic, epidemiologists and public health specialists have been using mathematical models to forecast the future in an effort to curb the coronvirus's spread.
