New Mineral Discovery On Mars Forces Scientists To Reevaluate Its History

NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory rover, Curiosity, has detected significant amounts of a silica mineral called tridymite on the surface of Mars and the discovery has scientists stunned. This surprising find may now force scientists to rethink the volcanic history of Mars, as this new evidence suggests that the planet may have in fact once had explosive volcanoes that led to the presence of the mineral. NASA planetary scientist at Johnson and lead author of the paper, Richard Morris explains “On Earth, tridymite is formed at high temperatures in an explosive process called silicic volcanism. Mount St. Helens, the active volcano in Washington State,...

Trials For Gene Editing Experiments Seeking Approval

Next week, the University of Pennsylvania will seek approval for the first human trials of CRISPR, deploying the gene editing tool to treat certain types of cancer. CRISPR, shorthand for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, is a means of editing genomes with greater precision and efficiency than any other methods, by utilizing a naturally occurring bacterial defense mechanism that can be programmed to target specific segments of genetic code and edit the DNA. Though it holds major potential for preventing HIV infection, curing genetic diseases and even creating designer babies, the University of Pennsylvania believes it is ready to trial their CRISPR...

Science Fiction Nightmare Comes To Life

Prof Hawking and Elon Musk warned us this would happen. A real experience from a science fiction nightmare. A robot created by Russian scientists and is designed to work in customer relations by interacting with humans realistically, answering questions and remembering every person it has ever met. The robot named Promobot was being worked on at a research lab but after an engineer accidentally left a perimeter gate open, Promobot walked straight out of the lab’s premises and ended up on the busy road outside. The robot was on the road outside the research lab for more than an hour and police...

Artificial Intelligence Is On The Rise Everywhere

Researchers used an incredible new form of functional magnetic resonance imaging pattern analysis which is now being used by computers to predict faces by using data from the memory-centered area of the brain. Hongmi Lee and Brice A. Kuhl from the Kuhl Lab at the University of Oregon studied the area of the brain responsible for processing faces, and stated ‘Recent findings suggest that the contents of memory encoding and retrieval can be decoded from the angular gyrus (ANG), a subregion of posterior lateral parietal cortex. Visually perceived faces were reliably reconstructed from activity patterns.” The researchers go on to explain that by...

Tonight on Dark Thirty Radio  Extraterrestrial Response May Not Arrive For Another 1,500 Years A new study suggests that just because we haven’t heard from extraterrestrial life, doesn’t mean we won’t, it will just take a lot more time than previously hoped. Astronomy student Evan Solomonides from Cornell University, due to the sheer size of the Milky Way, it could be up to 1,500 years before we can reasonably expect to hear back from any extraterrestrials who’ve picked up our transmissions from Earth. Although 1,500 years seems like a long wait for a response that may never come, the researchers are quick...

Proof Of TR-3B Spacecraft?

  A new video, which was submitted to MUFON for review, may be the first actual footage ever recorded of a TR-3B spacecraft. TR-3B is allegedly a secret “black project” spy craft of the US Government that can be flown into space, suggesting that these crafts are created at top-secret military bases like Area 51 in Nevada, by reverse engineering alien technology. An unnamed witness who claims to have recorded the fabled craft flying over a major highway, said “Triangular UFO hovered over route 45 in Mantua, New Jersey, and turned on its side over the road, and then flew...

Tonight On Dark Thirty Radio Proof Of TR-3B Spacecraft? A new video, which was submitted to MUFON for review, may be the first actual footage ever recorded of a TR-3B spacecraft. An unnamed witness who claims to have recorded the fabled craft flying over a major highway, said “Triangular UFO hovered over route 45 in Mantua, New Jersey, and turned on its side over the road, and then flew sideways towards Philadelphia” and described the craft as flying extremely slowly, at just around 10 miles per hour. MUFON is still investigating the new footage. Source: Express.Co.UK UFO Spotted Over Turkey Numerous sighting...

Glowing Light Found On Mars

A new video uploaded to YouTube by Tyler Glockner, from Secure Team, points out what he claims are “anomalous structures” found in pictures of Mars. The UFO hunter, says that he found a glowing light formation hidden in crater on Red Planet, and believes that the bizarre illuminations could represent an alien craft or part of a hidden object of alien origin. Glockner said “We have captured a lot of anomalous structures on Mars, however this would be the first time that we’ve actually seen lights on Mars. This could be a craft of some sort, this could be objects down in the...

AI In Space

NASA has agreed to pay as much as $100,000 to Made in Space to conduct a feasibility study on the concept of turning asteroids into spacecraft. Made in Space is the company that has put two 3D printers on the International Space Station to serve the needs of NASA, and the company’s next goal is to pioneer the manufacturing of materials in space, using resources in space. Several companies, including Planetary Resources and Deep Space Industries, have talked about developing probes to travel to asteroids, surveying the asteroids for resources including water ice and precious metals, and bringing those materials back to the...

The Pros and Cons Of Drones

Dubai International Airport, the world’s busiest airport for international travel, and base of the long-haul carrier Emirates, closed for over an hour after a drone flew into its airspace. The airport says the closure disrupted flights for 69 minutes on Saturday and it is not the first time this sort of attack has hit. In Poland, authorities at Warsaw’s international airport say they had to suspend all landings briefly because of two unauthorized drones flying in the area where planes approach for landing. Poland’s regulations forbid flying drones within a 12-mile radius from airports, although drones have been spotted on some previous occasions near...

The Mechs Are Coming

The concept of Mechs, giant, man-carrying robot suits, has been around for decades, but now researchers are in the development stages of making this a reality. Activelink, a company that develops new ways to link people and machines by using Power assist technology, has produced a prototype exoskeleton called the Assist Suit AWN-03, which is being developed as a solution to labor shortages that might arise due to an ageing population, since hoists and forklifts are not suitable for every situation. “There are some particular fields that cannot be mechanized, and industrial workers will still need to carry heavy objects by themselves,” said...
