Last week, a huge scandal rocked the Tunisian and Arab scientific and educational world: a PhD student submitted a thesis declaring Earth to be flat, unmoving, young (only 13,500 years of age), and the centre of the universe. The study is ongoing, and participants undergo regular health check-ups and also provide extensive information about their social situation every few years. And Paul Hanson, a limnologist at the University of Wisconsin (UW), Madison, says that although the Jefferson Project is similar to other lake-monitoring projects, they’re doing it on steroids.
The 24-hour, two-day event drew about 300 students from a wide range of schools to the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute campus. Find out what that means with science and technology reporter Nicole Mortillaro. The researchers used data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory and European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton and examined 24 stars that have masses similar to the Sun or less, and ages of a billion years or older.
Acid rain makes bodies of water acidic because of the water cycle, as states. But the latest shocking event (the PhD thesis) implies that we are not only failing to educate the public (that is manifest in the trendy flat earth” and Nasa lies” memes on social media) but also our brightest students.
Academic researchers and computer giant IBM are aiming to make Lake George, a 52-kilometer-long body of water in New York state, one of the smartest lakes in the world. Researchers have figured out why bats go bump in the night. The main cause of acid rains is the burning of the fossil fuels and vehicle exhausts, such as coal and fuel, as well as sulfur dioxide (SO2) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx), which are known as by-products of combusted fossil fuels.
Even if the old closed loop cooling system at Daiichi can be salvaged and its electrical system patched, it’s bound to leak with the piping and valves cracked or smashed by the hydrogen explosions and fires. After studying a fossil skull recovered from Alberta, the researchers named the new dinosaur Regaliceratops peterhewsi.
