Emerging research indicates that low doses of the active chemical psilocybin, found in the fungi, can have positive psychiatric effects.
Elevators have a simple task: take passengers from one floor to another safely. But it doesn’t mean that they have to be boring. Elevator towers for urban transport and modern design elevators attract great attention of tourists, because of its uniqueness, unusual looks and the driving experience. Let’s have a closer look at the most unusual elevators around the world.
Filmed on location in the Rainforests of Eastern Peru. What is your theory about why there are holes in the cocoon?
Observations of the kaboom that built our universe — known as the Big Bang — is better matching up with theory thanks to new work released from one of the twin 33-foot (10-meter) W.M. Keck Observatory telescopes in Hawaii.
Call it “fuel without fossils”: Jonathan Trent is working on a plan to grow new biofuel by farming micro-algae in floating offshore pods that eat wastewater from cities. Hear his team’s bold vision for Project OMEGA (Offshore Membrane Enclosures for Growing Algae) and how it might power the future.
Hope for Spinal Cord Injuries:Coaxed damaged nerve cells to grow and send messages to the brain again.
Researchers has been able to coax damaged nerve cells known as sensory neurons to regenerate, growing as much as 10 times longer than previously documented. What’s more, the new neurons make organized connections with their counterparts inside the spinal cord and brain stem, ensuring information from the outside world paints an accurate picture inside the brain.
A science fiction-inspired chair, the best when it comes to comfort, the ultimate workstation ever created.
Regarding the equation at the end – James says it should be e^-t dt NOT e^-n dn … sorry for the mix-up!
Hurricane forecasting is much more science than crapshoot these days. Computer models have become amazingly accurate, considering how many variables need to be taken into account–temperature, wind speed, humidity, barometric pressure, topography–from many different locations at different times.
