Gamma rays from the sun are acting weird and nobody knows why

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) - Tue, 2018-04-24 20:30
A survey of the sun’s radiation turned up two surprises: a dip in low-energy gamma rays, and far more high-energy gamma rays than predicted. And nobody knows why

Why now doesn’t exist, and other strange facts about time

Genetics - Tue, 2018-04-24 14:00
Einstein’s relativity tells us that time results from gravity warping the fabric of reality – resulting in a picture that is weirdly at odds with our experience

Almost 1500 bird species face extinction and we’re to blame

Genetics - Tue, 2018-04-24 13:42
One-eighth of the world’s 11,000 bird species are now threatened, and in most cases farming is the biggest threat thanks to our increasingly meat-rich diets
