    Big Foot Whether he’s named Big Foot, Yeti or Sasquatch; everybody has heard of the large, ape-like creature who’s gigantic footprints show up every now and then. Although the stories are frowned upon by most scientists, recently an international team of ‘yetiologists’ claimed there’s proof the legendary creature exists. During an expedition in Siberia, they

    Black holes are a mysterious field in science, one in which researchers often need to redefine their theories under the light of new discoveries. After decades of observational work, scientists have already agreed that there are supermassive black holes at the center of all massive galaxies. Until now, the most massive known black hole was

    New Experiments Confirm It: Some Particles Move Faster than Light0

    In September, a bunch of scientists at CERN claimed that they had found particles that could travel faster than the speed of light. This particles, also known as neutrinos, could travel 730 km in 2.43 milliseconds. This means that these particles travel this distance 60 nanoseconds faster than light does. Since these groundbreaking results proved

    Scientists have found a recipe for cooking the solar system from scratch0

    You take a cold cloud of gas, and set it 15 light-years from an exploding supernova. Stun the cloud with the supernova’s shockwave. Incubate, and watch as the solar system begins to take shape. New computer simulations support this scenario, which is a plausible recounting of the solar system’s birth, reports a team of scientists

    Scientists release most accurate simulation of the universe to date0

    The Bolshoi supercomputer simulation, is the most accurate and detailed large cosmological simulation run to date (“bolshoi” is the Russian word for “great” or “grand”), giving physicists and astronomers a powerful new tool for understanding such cosmic mysteries as galaxy formation, dark matter, and dark energy. The simulation traces the evolution of the large-scale structure
