These methane bubbles distort the Yamal Peninsula and Gydan plane producing craters that resemble an opening tip of a volcano.Consequences of global warmingThe Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Science suspects that the significant increase in temperature in the Arctic region causes the permafrost...

Astronomers Create an Incredible 3D Map of Space Dust in Milky Way

A 3D map of our galaxy’s space dust was created by scientists in the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab). One of the goals of this 3D space map is to carefully plot each individual dust that exists in our galaxy in order to clear up the deep space view and measure the accelerating expansion rate...

Newly Invented Liquid Matter Can Move on Its Own Along a Flat Surface

Any liquid substance is capable of flowing if a source of pressure applies a push or pull action to it such as a pump or an inclined surface. But for scientists in the University of Brandeis in Massachusetts, these laws of physics simply don’t satisfy. Therefore, they have cleverly come up with a way for liquids to freely move...

Check out These Awesome Digital Gauge Clusters

Who loves digital gauge clusters? We love them that’s who! Most modern vehicles have digital, rather than analog ones these days, but some designs are leagues ahead of the competition. With analog instruments rapidly becoming “redundant” and phased out by more detailed and easily customizable digital alternatives they are set to become standard features. Let’s have a look at...

How to Make a Vacuum Cleaner From a Plastic Bottle

Vacuum cleaner technology is simple: create a low-pressure system that forces (not sucks, because sucking does not exist- but that is for another time) air into a tube where dust and small debris can be picked up and stored. In essence, a fan connected to a tube. If the technology has not changed that much, how come they are...
