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. No one really knows how many species actually inhabit planet Earth—some say millions , others trillions —but regardless, it’s the job of taxonomists to name them all. Other duties include contribution to ongoing research projects, preparation of talks and participation in seminars, and drafting reports, grant applications, and papers for publication.

In the Higgs experiment CERN was using 4 TeV protons (4 trillion electron volts) meaning each proton punched 4,000 times above its rest mass weight for a collision energy of 8 TeV from just 2 protons. A key challenge for modern AI is putting back together a field that has almost splintered among these methodologies,” says James Hendler , director of …

A massive magnitude 8.1 earthquake struck Mexico just before midnight on Thursday. In the second paragraph, you nicely explained how the acid rain forms. To have a bit of fun with Science as Religion or the Hubris in Science, I take a hammer to it and see what flies. Two things we know for sure are more research is needed and CERN PR provides more spin than any known particle.

With the aging sarcophagus steadily rotting, there is now a multi-billion dollar project underway to dismantle the cap and destroyed reactor complex (caused by a steam explosion during a safety test in 1986) and cover what’s left with a giant containment building.science in the news

At best with all the jerry-rigging to cool down the melted reactor cores and melted spent fuel pond at Reactor 4, using a mile of rubber hose to patch in new pumps, also add Temporary to cold shutdown conditions and 40 years to dismantle the industrial carnage in the Japanese government’s new plan.science in the news

A new study has found that flocking on curved surfaces gives rise to unique patterns that nature could be taking advantage of – in our bodies, in the world. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the project of modernity, as had been promoted by Bacon and Descartes, led to rapid scientific advance and the successful development of a new type of natural science, mathematical, methodically experimental, and deliberately innovative.

In my year and a half on the replication beat for Slate, the phrase science is broken has appeared in the headlines of two of my stories Another headline claimed that cancer research is broken,” while a fourth announced, with reference to psychology, that everything is crumbling.” I could say that reporters rarely write their own headlines—indeed, those phrases originated with my editors—and that I don’t believe I’ve ever put the B-word in the body of a replication piece.sciencescience
