What if Life Began Outside of Earth and it Wasn’t an Alien Conspiracy, It Was Science?

There’s these things called planetesimals, they apparently are the heart of any new planet.  Well, scientists believe these planetesimals ‘had all the ingredients necessary” for the beginning of life to have happened long before earth was even fully.  Now the people who know science will tell it to you.  Take it away,  Live Science –

Life may have arisen in our solar system before Earth even finished forming.  Planetesimals, the rocky building blocks of planets, likely had all the ingredients necessary for life as we know it way back at the dawn of the solar system, said Lindy Elkins-Tanton, a planetary scientist at Arizona State University (ASU).  And clement conditions may have persisted inside some planetesimals for tens of millions of years — perhaps long enough for life to emerge, said Elkins-Tanton, the director of ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration and the principal investigator of NASA’s upcoming mission to the odd metallic asteroid Psyche. | go to source

  • Facebook Opens “Privacy-Protected” Data Up to Researchrs

    Venture Beat –  Facebook today announced the recipients of a grant that offers access to “privacy-protected” data from a fraction of the network’s billions of monthly active users around the world. The more than 60 researchers from 30 institutions across 11 countries were selected by two partner organizations, Social Science One and the Social Science Research Council (SSRC). Facebook says it won’t play a role in directing their findings in order to ensure the independence of the research. | go to sourc […]

  • Filaments That Make Your Hair Look Fat Have Just Been Discovered

    Science Daily – Experts have discovered that there is a moment at which a polymer in liquid state — specifically one that has been worked from polyethylene glycol, which is widely used in industry — shows greater elasticity that, instead of breaking up and forming drops, the liquid experiences a stretching which causes filaments to be formed. | go to sourc […]

  • AI Protects Drones from Human-Flown Drones

    Military and Aerospace Electronics – Iris Automation Inc. in San Francisco is introducing Casia computer visiontechnology detect-and-avoid technology to enable beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). | go to sourc […]

  • Nanowires Help Researchers 3D-Print Innovative Flexible Transparent Electric Circuits

    From 3DPrint.org –  University of Hamburg and DESY have been fast at work developing a new form of electronics using flexible transparent circuits. The cooperation between the two organisations has yielded an interesting design using nanowires and polymers. As a result, it opens up the possibility for electronics comprising a mesh of silver nanowires as circuits which are printable in suspension, embedded in various flexible and transparent plastics. | go to sourc […]
