Brain ‘15-second delay’ shields us from hallucinogenic experience – research


Scientists have revealed the human brain has a 15-second lag that helps stabilize incoming visual information, which we don’t notice bombarding us in the course of our everyday lives.

Eyes tend to receive an enormous information load from dusk till dawn, and as one opens his or her eyes in the morning, the brain starts its intensive work, processing incoming pictures from the surroundings, including imagery from TV screens and computer monitors.

Gusev Crater once held a lake after all, Mars scientist says


If desert mirages occur on Mars, "Lake Gusev" belongs among them. This come-and-go body of ancient water has come and gone more than once, at least in the eyes of Mars scientists.

Now, however, it's finally shifting into sharper focus, thanks to a new analysis of old data.

Exotic Space Particles Slam into Buried South Pole Detector


SAVANNAH, Ga.—A belowground experiment at the South Pole has now discovered three of the highest-energy neutrinos ever found, particles that may be created in the most violent explosions of the universe. These neutrinos all have energies at the absurdly high scale of peta–electron volts—roughly the energy equivalent of one million times a proton’s mass.

Field study shows possibility of deflecting seismic waves around desired geologic surface areas


A team of researchers in France has successfully demonstrated small-scale reflection of seismic waves around a desired geological area. In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, the researchers describe an experiment they conducted at an outdoor site to test whether lessons learned in creating cloaking devices using metamaterials (and other techniques) might be applied to seismic waves generated by earthquakes.

Volcanic islands merge in Pacific Ocean


A volcanic island in the Pacific Ocean has merged with its neighbour to form one landmass, the US space agency says.

The merged island lies some 1,000km (621mi) south of Tokyo, the result of eruptions on the seafloor that have spewed enough material to rise above the water line.

Ancient Asteroid Boiled Oceans, Burned the Sky, and Shook Earth for a Half-Hour


These days we freak out whenever some dinky bollide explodes in the sky over Russia. But scientists have now reconstructed the effects of an enormous 3.26-billion-year-old asteroid impact on Earth that boiled the oceans, turned the sky red hot, and generated a half-hour-long earthquake that shook the planet.

Bee Fossils Provide Rare Glimpse into Ice Age Environment


A new analysis of rare leafcutter-bee fossils excavated from the Rancho La Brea Tar Pits in Southern California has provided valuable insight into the local environment during the last Ice Age.

The La Brea Tar Pits, located in Los Angeles, contain the world's richest deposits of Ice Ace fossils, and are best known for their collection of saber-toothed cats and mammoths.

Forgive yourself if you want to live longer, scientists say


Scientists and doctors have long said there is a very close link between a person’s ability to deal with stress and their long-term health.

Usually we are tempted to blame this on external factors – a difficult relationship, pressures at work or pure rage at the inadequacies of public transport.

We should give up trying to save the world from climate change, says James Lovelock


Saving the planet from climate change is ‘beyond our ability’ and we should stop wasting time trying to tackle global warming, a leading scientist has claimed

Lovelock, who has just published his latest book A Rough Ride to the Future, claims we should be ‘strengthening our defences and making a sustainable retreat.’

Parkinson's Disease and Pesticides: What's the Connection?


What exactly causes Parkinson’s disease is far from figured out. But a clue has been lurking in cornfields for years.

The data confirm it: farmers are more prone to Parkinson’s than the general population. And pesticides could be to blame.

Doctor says Google Glass saved a man's life


Dr. Steven Horng, working at Boston's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, was wearing Glass last year while working on a man whose brain was bleeding. Dr. Horng knew that the patient was allergic to certain drugs that would arrest the bleeding, but didn't know which ones. With no time to leave the stricken patient, Horng says he called up the man's medical records on Google's wearable device, found the relevant information, and stabilized his condition.
