MIT researchers probe why antimatter violates the fundamental symmetry of physics

Imagine a dust particle in a storm cloud, and you can get an idea of a neutron's insignificance compared to the magnitude of the molecule it inhabits.But just as a dust mote might affect a cloud's track, a neutron can influence the energy of its molecule despite being less than one-millionth its size. And now physicists at MIT and elsewhere have successfully measured a neutron's tiny effect in a radioactive molecule.The team has developed a new technique to produce and study short-lived radioact...

Leadership Lessons from Trekking Up Mt. Everest Twice (and the North and South Poles)

I was an hiker at an early age with my dad. Every summer, we would climb the Appalachian Trail in New Hampshire. During these times, my father showed me non-quitting spirit. In the last four years, I have become a long distance road cyclist. These challenges have taught me a lot about myself and the people I team up with. However, I could never imagine doing what Alison Levine has accomplished. On The Small Business Radio, I talked with Alison who, at 5’ 4” is a history-making polar explorer an...

‘Everest’ Will See Ewan McGregor Scale a Mountain With ‘Edge of Tomorrow’ Director Doug Liman

Mount Everest, the world’s tallest mountain above sea level, has been the subject of several movies and documentaries, including a star-studded but mostly forgettable 2015 film about the 1996 disaster that claimed eight lives. But Edge of Tomorrow and The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman is now set to make his own Mount Everest film – the not-exactly-creatively-titled Everest – and Ewan McGregor (Trainspotting, Moulin Rouge), Sam Heughan (Outlander), and Mark Strong (Green Lantern, Shazam!) ...

A Minute by Minute Account of the Day the Dinosaurs Died

Perhaps the most consequential day in the Earth’s recent history was when a massive asteroid struck the planet 66 million years ago. It resulted in earthquakes, tsunamis, fireballs raining from the sky, volcanoes, atmospheric heat shocks, wildfires, global winter, and the extinction of 75% of all species on Earth, including the dinosaurs. This video by Kurzgesagt leads us through what happened that day, minute by minute. This video reminded me of Peter Brannen’s eye-popping description of t...

How NASA's $3.5 billion idea could save Earth from a supervolcano apocalypse

Yellowstone National Park sits atop a massive supervolcano that's considered one of the greatest volcano threats in the county. While experts estimate that a super-eruption might not happen for another few million years, NASA scientists performed a thought experiment to determine how we could prevent Yellowstone from erupting. Their hypothetical idea involves cooling the volcano down by pumping cold water into a series of wells around its perimeter. If implemented, the scenario could po...

Yo, plastic soup! These tiny swimming bots are coming to destroy you

Microplastics are everywhere, from the Mediterranean seafloor to Mount Everest, and the tiny fragments of litter can take hundreds of years to degrade. They can also absorb heavy metals and pollutants that could harm humans or animals that inadvertently consume them. At less than 5mm in length, the polymers are hard to remove manually. But there may be a more efficient method of eliminating the plastic scourge: attacking them with bacteria-sized robots. Scientists at the University of Chemistry ...

Feeling Intrepid With Seiko’s Prospex 1959 Alpinist Modern Re-interpretation

Several records were broken on Mount Everest last week. There was a woman from Hong Kong who climbed the world’s tallest mountain in less than 26 hours, making her the fastest woman ever. And there was also a Chinese man who became the first blind Asian to climb the 8,849-meter mountain. I really don’t want […] Visit Feeling Intrepid With Seiko’s Prospex 1959 Alpinist Modern Re-interpretation to read the full article.

Turn any place on earth into a New York street corner

Manhattan's street grid is famously regular and predictable.

Somewhere in Uzbekistan, global Manhattan goes haywire. Sixth Avenue in midtown Manhattan. Add a few zeroes to the address, and it could be yours. Credit: Jeremy Keith, CC BY-SA 2.0Can't affo...
