Delving into the unknown is both scary and interesting but to these adventure seekers and researchers, there is nothing more exciting than new significant discoveries. Richard Branson will join the submarine expedition that will dive into the bottom of deep and dark largest underwater sinkhole in Belize – the Great Blue Hole. This is going to be quite a stunt since scuba divers usually plunge to a pinnacle of 130 feet underwater. What lies at the...

Sufficient protein in your diet ensures the body to perform at its best on its daily activities, however, a protein-deficient diet deprives the body to function well. In developed countries such as the US, it is typically unusual for its population to have a critical protein-deficient diet. But an older person or those with an unbalanced diet is at risk to develop a certain level of protein deficiency. How would you know if you are eating enough...

Plastic wastes washed up into the oceans are ingested by the smallest and biggest marine species costing their lives. Every year, tons of plastic products get dumped not only in rivers, lakes, and waterways but also in the oceans. Different animals that live in the waters mistook them for food. It might be convenient for people to use styrofoam and plastics for chemical containers or food packaging but did manufacturers think of the harm it...

Adaptation is very crucial for survival and that is what elephants around the world are doing right now to avoid poaching. Elephants in Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park are proof of the never-ending war between pachyderms and humans. A majority of the mammals bear no tusks. They are the lonely survivors from the 90% of the total population that were butchered for their ivory to fund weapons and meat to sustain fighters. According to National Geographic Explorer...

Ice melts faster than it freezes in the Arctic leaving polar bears little or no place at all to live and give birth. Global warming hastens the melting of ice in the Arctic region but it takes longer to reach freezing point. This event spells extinction for the polar bears. The dawdling freezing of several Arctic regions this winter gave pregnant polar bears a hard time to look for birthing sanctuaries. The sea ice lengthy...

It is getting hotter by the day because of global warming and scientists are thinking of a solution to counter it.   Scientists from Harvard and Yale universities are recommending an innovative but not yet proven approach to address global warming by covering the Earth’s atmosphere with chemicals that could haze the sun. The study was published in the journal, “Environmental Research Letters” introducing the strategy known as the stratospheric aerosol injection (SAI). Researchers suggest that...

A new threat of El Niño is looming and scientists around the globe are actively monitoring it. The previous El Niño took its toll on the planet in late 2015 and has been the strongest ever documented. A remarkable pattern of worldwide rainfall fluctuations caused massive wildfires in Indonesia. It propelled coral bleaching and affected over 60 million people globally. It is expected that the impending El Niño will be as harsh just like three...

Lurking on the ocean floor are teenie weenie organisms that tidy up the oceans of carbon dioxide. Approximately 10% of carbon dioxide (CO2) that oceans release into the atmosphere is absorbed from underneath, thanks to the heroic effort of benthic bacteria. The research headed by Andrew Sweetman discovered that benthic bacteria are consuming huge amounts of CO2 and incorporating it into its biomass using an unknown procedure. Sweetman said, “Their biomass then potentially becomes a food...

Wildfires that frequent California bushes and forests are getting worse and smoke is now taking its toll on the health of residents and is adding to the harmful risks of the climate change. Climate change is a shift in the weather pattern and relevant changes in oceans, ice sheets, and land areas that transpire over time covering decades or longer. As wildfires continue to ravage the northern and southern parts of California, more concerns arise....

People who want to see the universe for themselves could be buying out-of-this-world tickets soon worth millions of dollars. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has plans to sell private space tickets. It will be one-way tickets that will take space tourists to and from the  International Space Station. If the plan pursues, it would be the first venture for the US. Russia, on the other hand, started dispatching tourists into space since 2001. If...
