    5G Is Actually Electromagnetic Genocide Disguised As Entertainment

    5G Is Actually Electromagnetic Genocide Disguised As Entertainment

    At this point in time, many people think 5G will bring our society more prosperity through faster and better data transmission and communication. As is often the case; what is sold to us as true, is in actual fact a Grand Deception, which is most certainly the case with 5G. It is, in actual fact, a stealth technology that almost certainly will turn out to be the end game for humanity. It will make us perpetually visible to invisible masters, while simultaneously cooking and frying our cells to the very core. It is an extinction event, specifically developed for eugenics, similar to the better known genetic engineering of plants and animals with the altering of DNA through GMO-food. People, animals, fish, insects, and plants are hereby cross-contaminated through the consumption and absorption of genetically modified species. Not without reason have these engineered products earned the title ‘Frankenstein Food’.

    INO: Beyond a Dream

    INO: Beyond a Dream

    Mahmoud Ghomi, also known as Moshaver-al-Molk Mahmoudi, was among 42 students who had been sent to Europe by the national scholarship in 1858 to learn modern science and technology. This was the first group of Iranian students who were selected to learn modern science and bring it back to Iran. It was a part of the famous Iranian chancellor Amir Kabir's initiations for reforms in Iran.

    Your DNA Data Can Be Used to Make a Scarf

    Your DNA Data Can Be Used to Make a Scarf

    You may have heard the often-quoted fact that humans and chimpanzees share 96% of their DNA in common. You also share 90% of your DNA with your cat, and a surprising 60% with a banana!

    Who’s Your Daddy?

    Who’s Your Daddy?

    The DNA test as we know it today is a very recent development. It only became available around three decades ago, giving families & lawmakers at last, a solid, accurate, and scientific way to prove who is the father of a child.

    You Can Now Do a DNA Test Before a Baby Has Even Been Born

    You Can Now Do a DNA Test Before a Baby Has Even Been Born

    DNA testing as we know it has been around since the 1980s, when the development of PCR finally gave scientists an accurate, reliable way to test if two individuals were related. But it probably wasn't until the late 90s and early 2000s that the idea of a DNA test really entered the popular conversation, thanks to reality talk shows such as The Jeremy Kyle Show in the UK and The Jerry Springer Show in the States. Today, there are several commercial companies that can perform a paternity test and settle family disputes, using little more than a cheek swab taken from the child, and their alleged father.

    The Most Advanced Civilization in the Universe

    The Most Advanced Civilization in the Universe

    "The Kardashev scale is a method of measuring a civilization's level of technological advancement based on the amount of energy a civilization is able to use."

    You Are a God That Believes It Is an Ant

    You Are a God That Believes It Is an Ant

    As you read this, I ask you to suspend your disbelief, for it will keep you exactly where you are. If you choose to open your mind to what I am about to say, your life may never be the same. Everything I say you are able to verify and validate through your own experiences and contemplations. Do not believe my words, for all words are fragmented projections of the truth. Instead, let them guide you along your path, and lead you to your bliss. Your bliss is different from mine or anyone else, that is the beauty of being human. When all of humanity follows their bliss, doors will open that we cannot yet see. This is the world I seek by not seeking.

    New Frontiers in Bio-Inspired Design

    New Frontiers in Bio-Inspired Design

    Nature has provided opportunities for scientists to observe patterns in biomaterials which can be imitated when designing construction materials. Materials designed with natural elements can be robust and environment-friendly at the same time. Advances in our understanding of biology and materials science, coupled with the extensive observation of nature, have stimulated the search for better accommodation and compression of materials and the higher organization and reduction of mechanical stress in man-made structures.

    Who Wants to Win a Nobel Prize

    Who Wants to Win a Nobel Prize

    If we auctioned off all of the elements in your body —the carbon, oxygen, iron, sodium, etc. —you would be worth a grand total of about one U.S. dollar. Five bucks, if you had the right bidders, apparently.

    Dark Matter: How We Know It's There

    Dark Matter: How We Know It's There

    Despite all of our advancements in science, physics, and astronomy, we still don’t know what approximately 80%-90% of the matter in the Universe is. But this isn’t a completely hopeless situation; there is a great deal we do know about this mysterious substance, provisionally named dark matter. For example, we know it’s there and we know where it is.

    A Certain Uncertainty: The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle Explained

    A Certain Uncertainty: The Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle Explained

    'Uncertainty'—it's not a word that we generally associate with science. Science conjures images of certainty, solid results, and constant improvement by increment. There's a certain irony then, that when we strip nature down to its fundamental limits, there remains an implicit, irremovable, intrinsic uncertainty. No matter how precise our measuring devices and methods become, no matter how clever our scientists, nature has imposed a limit on what we can know. And we are certain of that. That's what the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle describes. And it isn't just a factor in quantum physics. It infiltrates our lives in a number of surprising ways.

    The Physics of Solar Sails. How Photons Have Momentum Without Mass.

    The Planetary Society’s LightSail 2 project launches from Kennedy Space Center in Florida, as part of the US Air Force’s STP-2 mission. It will be carried by a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket, enclosed within Prox-1 — a small satellite built by Georgia Tech students.
