Since Captain Kirk first ordered the Starship Enterprise to engage the warp drive back in 1967, fans of science fiction have dreamed of traveling to the stars at warp speed. That idea remained in the realm of science fiction until 1994, when Mexican mathematician Miguel Alcubierre proposed a mathematically viable solution for building a real-world faster-than-light warp drive. Since then, numerous scientists and engineers have taken a swing at their own version of a viable, real-world warp drive, including an attempt to patent one of these “out there” ideas.
These Are the Top Four Theories That Could Bring Us Closer to Faster-Than-Light Travel
There are very few people who think to help mankind without considering any profit in return. After the great inventor Nikola Tesla, Baltimore engineer Otis T. Carr was the only person who believed in Tesla’s free energy concept. He wanted to create a spacecraft that would run on free energy and take humans to the Moon and other planets. His friendship with Tesla lasted until his death in 1943. He was a protégé of Tesla who constructed a number of fully functional flying saucers in the late 1950s.

Researchers have reversed ageing in human skin cells by 30 years, according to a new study. The findings could eventually revolutionize regenerative medicine, especially if it can be replicated in other cell types.

With a fortuitous lineup of a massive cluster of galaxies, astronomers have discovered a single star across most of the entire observable universe. This is the farthest detection of a single star ever. The star may be up to 500 times more massive than our Sun. Using a natural phenomenon known as “gravitational lensing,” astronomers were able to detect a single star at a distance where even detecting entire galaxies is challenging. This phenomenon was predicted by Einstein’s theory of relativity. It arises from the ability of mass to “curve” space itself.

An expedition team has located the wreckage of the explorer’s ship which sank in the Weddell Sea in 1915. Shackleton famously lost his ship but saved his crew. The “world’s most challenging shipwreck search” for one of the greatest legends of exploration history, Sir Ernest Shackleton’s Endurance, lost more than a century ago in the icy waters of Antarctica, has succeeded. The wreck was found 3,008 meters below the surface of what Shackleton described as “the worst portion of the worst sea in the world.”

Archeologists Are Planning to Scan the Great Pyramid of Giza with Cosmic Rays with Such Detail, They Should See Every Hidden Chamber Inside
by Evan Gough | Universe Today
The Great Pyramid of Giza might be the most iconic structure humans ever built. Ancient civilizations constructed archaeological icons that are a testament to their greatness and persistence. But in some respects, the Great Pyramid stands alone. Of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, only the Great Pyramid stands relatively intact.
Earthlike exoplanets, including those with features like continents and liquid water on their surface, might be plentiful across the Milky Way galaxy. Previous planet formation models had indicated that Earth’s abundance of life-supporting water may have arrived due to extremely fortuitous comet strikes, but new models seem to indicate that rocky, earthlike planets may attract enough water during their development phase to make them as friendly to life as Earth.

In 1958, a bulldozer operator in Northern California discovered 16-inch human-like footprints, and the legend of Bigfoot was born. Today, there are hundreds of reported sightings in America. See more in this full History episode.
NASA has awarded a contract to Lockheed Martin Space of Littleton, Colorado, to build the Mars Ascent Vehicle (MAV), a small, lightweight rocket to launch rock, sediment, and atmospheric samples from the surface of the Red Planet. The award brings NASA a step closer to the first robotic round trip to bring samples safely to Earth through the Mars Sample Return Program.

The moon has been Earth’s close companion for billions of years, and while our view of its shape and size varies somewhat as it orbits our planet, it remains a constant presence in the sky. But could that change? In the 2022 movie “Moonfall”, a mysterious force ejects the moon from orbit and propels it on a collision course toward Earth, with a planet-smashing impact looming in just a few weeks. When confronted with this high-stakes and over-the-top disaster scenario, the film’s characters scramble to save the planet; in doing so, they learn that our natural satellite isn’t so natural after all.
