Latest faster-than-light neutrinos test yields same results

Neutrinos just don’t seem to be cooperating with our cosmological constant. Back in September, physicists working on the OPERA project fired neutrinos from CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, to Gran Sasso Italy. Afterwords, they discovered the neutrinos had arrived 60 seconds before light would have, a finding that could, if true, greatly undermine our current physics …

Is There Life on Europa?

Scientists  have long been mystified by the possibility of a liquid ocean beneath the icy and reflective surface of Jupiter’s sixth moon, Europa. Now, scientists have revealed a new theory, devised from old evidence, that suggests liquid water lakes may be much closer to the surface than originally thought.

A Time-Lapse View of Earth Aboard the International Space Station

The largest artificial body in low-Earth orbit, the International Space Station, or ISS, can often be seen with the naked eye. I know, because I’ve seen it. According to Wikipedia, …
