#Terris can change how we process traumatic experience. 
There's nothing quite as intensely manic as reaching the final levels of Tetris and struggling to control those high-speed tetrominoes that plummet to the bottom of your screen like hell-bent comets from the sky. But despite the high-pressure...

The case for convergent evolution. 
You can forget about little green men and predatory Xenomorphs: aliens are likely to look a lot like human beings, according to an expert in evolution from the University of Cambridge. In a new book, Simon Conway Morris says that any...

. More info becomes available every day, so it will always be interesting to keep an eye on this subject occasionally... intelligent sea animals would have an advantage over land-based humans... no need to build homes and they already have schools...

Chemistry is awesome!! 
Fireworks were invented in China thousands of years ago, and over the centuries they have been perfected to create wonderful light displays that are seen on many holidays, including the 4th of July, Chinese New Year, and New Year' s Eve...

Beautiful photo courtesy of amazing glow worms!


You could be forgiven for mistaking these ethereal images of a cave system in New Zealand as man-made, using twinkly blue fairy lights or lamps to create the warm glow. However, not for the first time, nature has unintentionally created this incredible fairytale-like scene. The glow is bioluminescent gnat larva (or arachnocampa luminosa) living on 30 million-year-old limestone formations.

Woah!! 
China has announced that's it's developed new technology that will help its bullet trains reach an ultra-fast 500 km/h. That isn't quite as fast as Japan's Maglev trains, which hit record-breaking speeds of 590 km/h earlier this year , but it's...
