On Friday, authorities in North Las Vegas placed murder suspect Alonso Perez in an interrogation room, shackled his legs, and handcuffed him to a metal bar on a table. On Friday, authorities in North Las Vegas placed murder suspect Alonso Perez in an interrogation room, shackled his legs, and handcuffed him to a metal bar on a table, reports the Washington Post. Nonetheless, Perez escaped. Recently released video by the North Las Vegas Police Department shows how. Perez begins by twisting the cuffs and his body in a way that causes the end tethering him to the table to snap. Soon after, he climbs within reach of the ceiling, moves a tile, and then exits through the sizable opening he created. Perez was fortunate enough to exit into a completely unoccupied hallway and make his way to the door undetected. The captain of the detective bureau said the suspect was incredibly lucky that his escape was successful, noting, “The planets aligned for that guy.” Perez was brought back into police custody on Tuesday.

Meet the Janitor Who Invented Flamin' Hot Cheetos
 
01:04
The flavor and the recipe for Flamin' Hot Cheetos were the brainchild of a janitor working at the Rancho Cucamonga, California Frito Lay factory in the mid-1970s. Next time you break open a bag of Flamin' Hot Cheetos, know that you're about to take a bite of the American dream. The flavor and the recipe were the brainchild of a janitor working at the Rancho Cucamonga, California Frito Lay factory in the mid-1970s. Richard Montañez said the idea came to him when he saw a food vendor put cheese and chile on a bowl of corn. He thought, why not spice up a Cheeto? After perfecting the recipe he called the company's CEO who asked Montañez to come in and pitch the idea. He barely spoke English at the time, but forged ahead, getting a book on marketing from the library, packaging his test snacks, and buying a tie. Clearly, the meeting was a huge success and Flamin' Hot Cheetos are now the company's best-selling product. That's not the only happy ending, though. Montañez has since become the executive vice president of multicultural sales and community activation for PepsiCo's North American branch. He hasn't forgotten where he came from, though, and uses his success to help others, providing scholarships for Latino students and food and clothing for needy families.

Each year, thousands die while waiting for needed donated organs, but a man in Michigan was able to survive the stretch by using a total artificial heart. Each year, thousands die while waiting for needed donated organs, but a man in Michigan was able to survive the stretch by using an external mechanical heart.  Stan Larkin was born with familial cardiomyopathy, and the condition rendered his own vital organ inoperable about a year and a half ago.  In December of 2014, doctors at the University of Michigan outfitted him with an artificial heart and a SynCardia Freedom Portable Driver.  The roughly 13-pound device, which Larkin carried around in a backpack, took over the blood pumping duties until a transplant was an option.  Last month, Larkin, who is now 25, finally got the donated heart he’d been waiting for.  He recently said at a press conference, "It was an emotional rollercoaster… I want to thank the donor who gave themselves for me. I'd like to meet their family one day.”

NASA Just Unveiled Its Hedgehog Rover Concept For Exploring Comets
 
01:19
NASA recently released a video showcasing Hedgehog, its newest concepts for space exploration. NASA recently released a video featuring one of its newest concepts for space exploration. Meet Hedgehog: a robot intended to overcome the difficulties of navigating low-gravity environments on comets, asteroids and other space objects.  A typical rover makes its way around a mission site—say, the surface of Mars—much like a regular car. But a small body’s microgravity makes driving around a dangerous proposition—the rover could float away or tumble over and the mission would end. Hedgehog is different. It's basically a box with spikes and wheels on the inside. And brakes for those wheels.  When those brakes are pulled, the box hops and tumbles, enabling it to move across a small body's surface without falling victim to the low-gravity.  There’s no correct side—it's always upright no matter how it lands.  And Hedgehog also has a spinning "tornado" function so it can dislodge itself from sticky situations.  According to NASA, "The construction of a Hedgehog robot is relatively low-cost compared to a traditional rover, and several could be packaged together for flight, the researchers say. The mothership could release many robots at once or in stages, letting them spread out to make discoveries on a world never traversed before."

Mystery Woman In Coffin Found Near Burial Site Of King Richard III
 
01:24
In 2013, researchers digging in Leicester, England turned up a mysterious lead sarcophagus containing a coffin, and recently some light has been shed on it and the person entombed inside. In the process of digging beneath a parking lot in Leicester, England, archaeologists unearthed many fascinating items, most notably the remains of King Richard the Third. About a year after that discovery, researchers turned up a mysterious sarcophagus containing a lead coffin in 2013, and recently some light has been shed on it and the person entombed within.  . Radiocarbon dating of the burial vessel itself revealed that it likely dates back to the latter part of the 13th century.  As the site at which it was found was once the location the Grey Friars Church, it was and is believed that the individual buried in such a grand way was of great significance to the order.  What came as quite a shock, however, is that the remains have proven to be those of a female. It does not appear that any of those involved in the endeavor saw that coming, as very little is known about the relationship women had with the friary.  Said dig leader Mathew Morris, “The discovery is going to add important insights into the interaction of women and the religious orders in the medieval period.”

Drugs Given To Spiders Change How They Weave Their Webs
 
01:13
One zoologist’s quest to document the spider’s web-crafting process led to studies showing the effects of various drugs on spiders, and possibly humans. While spiders may not give people the warm fuzzies, many admire their intricately-spun webs. One zoologist’s quest to document the spider’s web-crafting process led to studies showing the effects of various drugs on spiders, and possibly humans. In 1948, H.M Peters kept falling asleep while trying to capture footage of spiders building webs around 2 to 5 am. He asked his workspace roommate – pharmacologist Peter Witt who was studying drug effects on humans – to figure out how to get the spiders working at different times. Witt went about this by feeding the spiders drops of sugar water mixed with drugs like marijuana, peyote, and morphine. Webs still were spun at the same time of night so Peters ended his quest. But the resulting web abnormalities mesmerized Witt as he tested additional drugs like caffeine and LSD. He continued to study spiders, which didn’t require as much time or money and weren’t subject to legal regulations or animal rights advocates - until he ended his experiments in the 1970s. Then in 1995, NASA replicated Witt’s studies to measure the toxicity of different drugs. Similar to Witt’s, NASA’s results showed how each drug creates a unique pattern of non-functional behavior and web deformities based on the drug’s toxicity. Surprisingly, the ever-popular caffeine seemed to produce one of the most deformed webs.

Fasting Triggers Immune System Regeneration
 
01:01
72 hours of going without food can trigger the creation of new white blood cells, essentially regenerating the body's immune system. 72 hours of going without food can trigger the creation of new white blood cells, essentially regenerating the body's immune system. According to researchers at the University of Southern California, when the body doesn't have enough energy to run itself, it starts to look for other sources. Glucose and fat are the typical places it's found, but the body will start to consume anything it doesn't feel it needs. Among the things it considers excess are damaged immune cells, so it will use those as well. Once eating resumes, it's as if a switch has been flipped in the stem cells, and they begin to make new and healthy replacements. Fasting also prompted the body to decrease its levels of IGF-1, a growth-factor hormone that's been linked to cancer, tumor growth, and aging. Among the many areas where this study could benefit people is in countering the damaging effects of chemotherapy, which causes a great deal of damage to the immune system. It's also believed that the information gleaned will be of great importance in future studies on aging and autoimmunity disorders. The researchers do admit that the results came as quite a surprise.

Why UPS Trucks Don't Make Left Turns
 
01:17
While an individual person may not save much by only making right turns, a huge corporation like UPS has proven since 2004 how avoiding left turns in its trucks can significantly increase its bottomline while reducing emissions and accidents. With nearly 100,000 trucks and hundreds of aircraft, UPS averages 15.8 million packages delivered daily worldwide. While an individual person may not save much by only making right turns, since UPS implemented a right turn policy in 2004, they have significantly increased profits while reducing emissions and accidents. UPS estimates the right-turn-heavy policy, combined with its routing software, shortens routes by 20.4 million miles and saves 10 million gallons of gas while delivering an additional 350,000 packages and reducing CO2 emissions by about 20,000 metric tons each year. UPS engineers noticed how waiting to turn left caused trucks to fall behind on their schedules, consume more gas, and increase the probability of accidents. Their software maps routes with only right-hand turns unless it's quicker or easier to proceed with a left-hand turn. A driver estimates they do about 90% right-hand turns. The television show Mythbusters tested the policy with one route using 8 left and 4 right turns, and another route using 1 left and 23 right turns. The UPS-like route was just over 1 mile and 9 minutes longer, but it reduced gas consumption from 6.8 to 4 pounds. UPS' software probably would've added one or two more left-hand turns to be more efficient on time while still saving gas.

Coast Guard Helicopter Spots Historic Shipwrecks During Routine Patrol
 
01:13
Last Friday, a U.S Coast Guard aircrew captured remarkable photos of several shipwrecks in the clear blue waters of Lake Michigan. Just a few weeks ago, all we'd hear about is how many of the lakes around the country were frozen as a result of severe snow storms. Now that much of the ice has melted in those lakes and spring is here, it's not just the flowers that are coming into view. Last Friday, a U.S Coast Guard aircrew captured remarkable photos of several shipwrecks in the clear blue waters of Lake Michigan. The pictures were taken near the Sleeping Bear Dunes area which is part of the Manitou Passage. The area is home to quite a few shipwrecks. The Traverse City-based crew posted those photos on Facebook and with the help of other social media users added details on the spotted shipwrecks. One of them notes, "The 121 foot brig James McBride ran aground during a storm on October 19, 1857. Her remains lie in 5 to 15 feet of water near Sleeping Bear Point." Another one was the Rising Sun with description, "This 133 foot long wooden steamer stranded just north of Pyramid Point on October 29, 1917. She went to pieces and her wreckage now rests in 6 to 12 feet of water." These shipwrecks are state property giving them protection against public disturbance.

NASA wants to build a floating city above the clouds of Venus
 
01:39
While Mars is getting a lot of attention from space exploration organizations around the world, NASA has just announced a mission to colonize the atmosphere of Venus, our other neighboring planet. While Mars has been the primary target for space exploration, NASA is conducting a study to explore the possible human occupation of Venus’s upper atmosphere using airships. The mission is mapped out around five distinct phases which start with robotic exploration followed by three crewed mission phases of varying lengths leading to permanent human residence in a cloud city. The conditions on the surface of Venus are much different from Earth and Mars, including extremely high temperatures. Landing on Venus always presented a challenge since ground temperatures reach around 930 degrees Fahrenheit. It also has 92 atmospheres of pressure, which is equivalent to that found almost a mile under the ocean. However, NASA’s High Altitude Venus Operational Concept takes into consideration that Venus’s conditions are more hospitable around 31 miles above its surface. Its atmospheric temperature is around 167 degrees Fahrenheit,, only 17 degrees hotter than the record temperature set on Earth, and gravity there is only slighter lower than Earth. A benefit of exploring Venus over Mars for missions is its closer proximity to Earth. Round-trip travel to Venus would take 440 days, versus 650-900 days to Mars. Venus also has low levels of radiation comparable to those on Earth. Mars, on the other hand, produces extremely high levels of radiation, which would necessitate underground habitats to limit exposure. According to experts, the amount of solar power available on Venus would offer enough energy to sustain a mission there.

A new hospital in Haiti has officially opened. It is said to be "the world's largest solar powered hospital."  A new hospital in Haiti has officially opened. It is said to be "the world's largest solar powered hospital." The establishment is massive, however it boasts a minimalist design. It features an astounding 1800 solar panels on the white roof. The Hopital Universitaire de Mirebalais is situated about 30 miles away from the country's capital. In this area, power outages are very common, usually leaving residents without electricity for an average of three hours per day. The over 200,000 square foot facility houses about 300 beds. The building was designed and developed to produce more energy than it will need to consume for operations. To make the project even more sustainable, the unused energy will be put back into Haiti's national power grid. The director of construction stated "The challenge was in the design and engineering, and getting the solar power produced to mesh with the often unstable grids and the backup generators. At each step of the way, we were attempting things that had never before been done."

Rare Coin Worth Millions
 
01:20
A rare coin is worth millions. Experts confirmed what George Walton already knew -- his 1913 Liberty head nickel was the real deal. Unfortunately, Mr. Walton was killed in a car crash in 1962, but his heirs never lost faith in his belief and have held onto the coin for 51 years. The nickel is going up for auction and is expected to bring in between 2 and 5 million dollars. The reward has been a long time coming as the nickel was previously declared a fake. He acquired the rare 1913 coin in the mid-1940sby trading around 4 thousand dollars worth of collectible gold coins. At that time the nickel was already legendary as there were believed to be only 5 in existence. Born of shaky provenance, the coin's origins were discovered when a previous owner traced its creation back to the likely illicit activities of a mint employee. It wasn't until 2003 that Walton's nickel received acknowledgement of its validity and value when a Baltimore coin event offered a reward for its uncovering. Overall, rare coins are rapidly escalating in value. The upper echelon of them have increased their worth by up to 50 percent in the past year alone.

Experiment Shows Rats Helping Other Distressed Rats
 
01:02
A series of experiments tested whether or not rats help each other out in moments of distress. It turns out not only will rats work towards freeing an anxious cage mate, but they'll even forgo a treat to do so. A recent study tested rats' empathic behavior. In order to do so, two rats were placed in a divided cage with only a door connecting them. In the first experiment, one rat in the cage was soaked while the other remained dry. Witnessing the wet rat's distress caused the dry rat to open the door to free it.  9 out of the 10 rats who remained dry during this procedure freed their wet rat mate.  The roles of the rats were switched around, and it was then discovered that previously drenched rats responded quicker to the distressed rats than those who had remained dry the entire time.  A second experiment conducted with two dry rats revealed that with neither displaying anxiety, there was no need for them to open the door.  The third and final experiment forced the rats to choose between a treat, or helping out their wet friend. Most of the time, the rats ignored the treat in order to rescue the other rat first.  According to the study, "...findings suggest that rats can behave prosocially and that helper rats may be motivated by empathy-like feelings towards their distressed cagemate."

Staffers from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust along with one determined veterinarian and his team helped save the life of a severely wounded lioness in Kenya. Don't ever doubt how far some concerned humans will go to save the life of an animal. In one recent case, staffers from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust along with one determined veterinarian and his team helped save the life of a severely wounded lioness in Kenya. The dramatic ordeal took place on April 4th. Authorities from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust or DSWT frantically contacted veterinarian Dr. Njoroge from the Kenyan Wildlife Service asking for help. The lioness named Siena had been horrifically wounded by the horn of a buffalo. She was left with a gaping hole in her body and the loose flesh was left dangling towards the ground. Once Njoroge was alerted of the dire situation, he got his team together, packed up his belongings and jumped onboard an aircraft destined for the Maasai Mara National Reserve to save the 11-year-old lioness. It took about an hour and a half to treat her with antibiotics and attend to the wound. Following the professional lifesaving efforts, Siena was free to join her herd. She is now doing great. Thanks to the team, Siena's life was saved, as were those of her three cubs.

NASA scientist Harold White has spent a long time examining the plausibility of a space ship that can travel faster than light, and now he's taken his research to the next level. With the help of artist Mark Rademaker, White has made a design of what such a vessel would look like. The warp drive vehicle is called the IXS Enterprise and does bear more than a casual resemblance to its Star Trek namesake. Of course, nobody is quite sure if making a warp bubble is actually possible, but NASA is investigating the matter via ongoing experiments. It has been determined that previous concerns about a warp drive annihilating a star system are unfounded. Researchers are still unclear about the consequences of faster-than-light ships coming into close contact with other vessels, however. Those matters aside, if warp speed travel ever does become more than the stuff of science fiction it could put the entire solar system at the world's fingertips.

Domino's has tested out a prototype for a flying drone that can deliver pizzas. The device carried two large pepperoni pizzas and conducted a flight. How do you get your pizza delivered? Last month, Domino's pizza teamed up with a creative agency titled T + Biscuits to test out a prototype for a flying drone that can deliver cheese pies. Described as an octacopter, the device carried two large pepperoni pizzas and conducted a flight over a city near London. The pizzas, both contained in an insulated bag, were secured to the drone. They were delivered in perfect condition and it only took about 10 minutes to venture 4 miles. The founder of T + Biscuits stated "If anything it went quicker than a pizza boy. We were amazed at how easy it was going to be." The drone is being called the DomiCopter. Although the device won't take the place of human delivery drivers anytime soon, Domino's is reportedly experimenting with the drone at their UK headquarters. Federal Aviation Administration authorities estimate that private drones will make up a $90 billion industry within 10 years.

Massive Underground Ocean Exists Beneath Earth's Crust, Study Says
 
01:25
Scientists believe they've found evidence of a potential ocean beneath our home planet's crust. A study from researchers at Northwestern University and the University of New Mexico have concluded the body of water rests about 400 miles underneath earth's crust and is so large it can fill all our oceans three times over. Scientists believe they've found evidence of a potential ocean beneath our home planet's crust. A study from researchers at Northwestern University and the University of New Mexico have concluded the body of water rests about 400 miles underneath earth's crust and is so large it can fill all our oceans three times over. Their research however indicates the water is not in the typical liquid, ice or vapor forms, but instead, is trapped in mantle rock containing a blue mineral called ringwoodite. Ringwoodite has a structure similar to crystal that acts like a sponge to trap liquid and pull in hydrogen. Thus far only one small piece of ringwoodite has been brought to Earth's surface from 400 miles underground by volcanic activity and was found to contain water in solid form. The researchers combined lab experiments on mantle rock under high pressure with seismic data measuring U.S. earthquakes to reach their conclusions. The discovery is an important one as it will help scientists learn how the Earth formed and its current composition. Northwestern geophysicist Steve Jacobsen, who is a co-author of the study, commented "I think we are finally seeing evidence for a whole-Earth water cycle, which may help explain the vast amount of liquid water on the surface of our habitable planet. Scientists have been looking for this missing deep water for decades."

A remarkable video that shows two baby orangutans meeting for the first time was recently posted by International Animal Rescue. A remarkable video that shows two baby orangutans, Gito and Asoka, meeting for the first time was recently posted by International Animal Rescue or IAR, a charity organization that rescues orangutans in Borneo. Both of them had been kept in captivity as pets in the past and according to the organization, their mothers were probably killed while attempting to prevent their babies from being taken away. The IAR notes in a news release, "the two babies are completely fascinated by this first encounter, staring and reaching out to touch and nibble each other. For Gito, this is the first time he has been close to another orangutan since losing his mother, so this is a real milestone in his rehabilitation." The group is particularly pleased to see Gito's progress considering just several months back, he was found, almost corpse-like, in a cardboard box. Looking toward the future, the IAR says, "Gito and Asoka are now attending pre-school together, playing with the other small babies and building up their strength before moving on to baby school where they will experience the rough and tumble of the more boisterous, bigger and older infants."

Off-Road Hover Bike Will Be Available in 2017
 
01:11
The Aero-X hover bike will hit the market in 2017 allowing riders to fly over the ground. Hover vehicles are not a new idea, but none have been successful. That will change in 2017. Then, the Aero-X hovercraft will hit the market, allowing riders to fly over the ground. The hover bike and brainchild of engineering company Aerofex, first appeared as a prototype back in 2007. The Aero-X is not designed for ground travel, and instead will fly over flat ground and hilly terrain while up to 10 feet in the air and hitting speeds up to 45 miles per hour. It can remain in hover mode for about 75 minutes. Riders don't need a pilot's license to operate the vehicle. That's because the hover bike is controlled just like a motorcycle rather than an aircraft. Operators use the lean and steer method, just like any other two wheeled contraption you see on the road. The chief technology officer and founder of Aerofex remarked "We've done a lot of work to learn how to remove the coupling effect. That's the key for someone who only has motorcycle experience to be able to get on it and feel comfortable right away." Comprised of a 'light-weight carbon fiber frame', the two seat bike comes equipped with fan blades and a trio of '240 horsepower three-rotor rotary engines'. If the concept peaks your interest, be forewarned -- the price for an Aero-X is going to set you back about 85 grand.

A dog in the UK still hasn’t found a human family after nearly two years. Named Biscuit, the former stray arrived at the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Berkshire in early 2013. A shelter dog in the UK has spent nearly two years without a loving human family. Named Biscuit, the former stray arrived at the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home in Berkshire in early 2013. Since then, more than 49 hundred other dogs that stayed at the facility have been adopted. That means almost 5,000 potential families have likely seen Biscuit and possibly interacted with him, but did not take him home. Biscuit is now the ‘longest-serving’ pet resident at all of Battersea’s three locations. The poor dog been at the shelter 22 times longer than the average canine. What makes the constant rejection trend baffling is that Biscuit is a good-looking pooch with a playful and fun personality. He gets along good with other dogs and his tail is usually always wagging unless he’s exhausted. The manager of the facility in Old Windsor commented “..he's such a beautiful ..dog who would fit in perfectly with a family. Every day we hope someone will call us wanting to meet him, but poor Biscuit is constantly rejected and hasn't had any interest.” February of 2015 will be two years since he stopped living on the streets. He’s now staying with a foster family, but the goal is to find the 2 and a half year old canine a forever home as soon as possible.

Rare Islamic Coins Slated for Auction Block
 
01:12
Rare and early Islamic coins are slated for the auction block. Rare coins often grab spotlight at high-end auctions. London based auctioneers, Morton & Eden are gearing up to sell three of the earliest Islamic coins, which were created only mere decades following the death of the Prophet Muhammad. Together, the coins are expected to sell for over $500,000 at the auction which is slated to take place on April 22nd. Two of the pieces contain portraits of Christian Byzantine emperors who ruled in the early 7th century AD. Close inspection reveals that other Christian symbols have been removed, making these coins amongst the earliest ones made by Muslims using modified dies. It is believed the transitional coins were only issued in limited quantities. Stephen Lloyd of Morton & Eden states "they are definitely among the very first gold coins the Muslims ever made." Last year, the co-chairman of the Texas Rangers, Bob Simpson purchased a 1943-S Bronze Lincoln Cent for $1 million. The penny is one out of four San Francisco Mint Lincoln pennies that were accidentally made of bronze rather than the 1943 standard material of zinc-coated steel.

Asian-Americans account for 5 percent of the population in the United States, but in Ivy League universities,12 to 18 percent of the students are reportedly of Asian descent. According to a recent study from researchers at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor and Queens College, City University of New York, there is a reason why Asian-American children are more academically successful than their white classmates. The results of the study were based on data taken from standardized test scores, teacher reports, and grade point averages, along with the socio-demographic and immigration information of approximately four thousand Caucasian students, and one thousand Asian-American students from kindergarten through high school. While at a younger age the difference in academic performance is not significant, the discrepancies became most apparent around grade 10. The researchers think that the difference has to do with work ethic more than socioeconomic status or cognitive ability. The authors of the study wrote: "The results show that Asian Americans are less likely than whites to believe that ability is inborn, and more likely to believe that one can learn to be good at math." Asian-American students also reportedly spent more time and energy focused on academic pursuits, but also said they felt more pressure from their parents to be successful and excel academically.

Researchers at King's College London have come up with a way to replace tooth drilling at the dentist with a new treatment that helps decaying teeth repair themselves. Good news for people who are afraid to go under the drill at the dentist. Researchers at King's College London have come up with a way to replace tooth drilling at the dentist with a new treatment that helps decaying teeth repair themselves. Currently, dentists fix decaying teeth by drilling out the infected part and filling the cavity with an amalgam or composite resin material. Professor Nigel Pitts, from King's College London's Dental Institute is quoted as saying: "Not only is our device kinder to the patient and better for their teeth, but it's expected to be at least as cost-effective as current dental treatments." The new treatment, called Electrically Accelerated and Enhanced Remineralisation, is painless and noninvasive. It involves applying a calcium and phosphate mineral cocktail and sending an electrical current to the decaying tooth to force the minerals deeper into the cavity. The treatment might be made commercially available in the next three years, because the researchers have created a firm called Reminova based in Perth, Scotland to set up private funding for their project to get off the ground.

Recent Kakapo Hatchings in New Zealand Boost Population
 
01:13
Kakapos are making a sweet little comeback in New Zealand. Kakapos are making a sweet little comeback in New Zealand. A few new chicks have finally arrived in the country, due to a slight but very significant baby boom. The chicks are the first to be born in three years. The six chicks have made New Zealand's kakapo population reach the 130 mark. The species is often called the owl parrot, given their striking resemblance to owls. Native to New Zealand, the ground dwelling birds, which can weigh up to 8 pounds, are entirely flightless and are thought to be the world's rarest and most bizarre parrot. Kakapos are considered to be critically endangered. Contributing to their scarceness is the fact they only breed about three times over the course of a decade. Prior to the recent hatchings, the last time any chicks were born was in 2011. On February 28th of this year, the first surviving chick named Lisa One hatched. She's definitely a fighter as her mother crushed the egg prior to the hatching. Luckily, rangers intricately pieced it back together. Five of the hatchings took place on the predator free Codfish Island, while the remaining one hatched on Little Barrier Island. Three of them were taken in by the New Zealand Department of Conservation's Kakapo Recovery program where they will be hand fed. Another two were fostered to kakapo mothers and will be continuously monitored. ------------------

Scientists Discover a Way to Turn Light Into Matter
 
01:13
In 1905, the famous physicist Albert Einstein theorized that light was actually a particle, which helped explain the photoelectric effect. Now, scientists at the Imperial College London in England are working to develop a photon-photon collider that might be able to turn light into matter, which is a process that also takes place during the largest explosions in the universe called gamma-ray bursts. In 1905, the famous physicist Albert Einstein theorized that light was actually a particle, which helped explain the photoelectric effect. Now, scientists at the Imperial College London in England are working to develop a photon-photon collider that might be able to turn light into matter, which is a process that also takes place during the largest explosions in the universe called gamma-ray bursts. The idea is based on a theory from 1934, which claimed that when two photons, or light particles, smash together, it would create matter in the form of an electron and a positron. Professor Steven Rose from the Department of Physics at the Imperial College London is quoted as saying: "What was so surprising to us was the discovery of how we can create matter directly from light using the technology that we have today in the UK. As we are theorists, we are now talking to others who can use our ideas to undertake this landmark experiment." There are reportedly at least three facilities that have the necessary technological equipment to make the process work, and the researchers from Imperial College London expect to start conducting their experiment in about a year.

NASA Finds New Radiation Belt Around Earth
 
01:21
NASA finds a new radiation belt around Earth. A radiation belt around our planet that was unknown to scientists has been discovered by NASA space probes. Two rings of radiation known as the Van Allen radiation belts were one of the first space discoveries back in 1958. A third layer of radiation existed for 4 weeks, and was then destroyed by an interplanetary shock wave in October of 2012. The Van Allen probes were launched in the summer of 2012 to take measurements of the known existing radiation belts, and the instruments picked up the presence of a third belt. Daniel Baker, director of the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics at the University of Colorado in Boulder said: : "More than five decades after the original discovery of these radiation belts, you can still find new unexpected things there...We now need to re-evaluate them thoroughly both theoretically and observationally." NASA's twin Van Allen space probes have also recorded noises produced by radio waves in the magnetosphere of the planet. The noises have been described as sounding like alien birds. The transfer of energy from lower energy particles to higher energy particles creates the noises at frequencies that human beings can hear. Researchers hope the detailed data being collected will improve our understanding of space weather and solar storms that can have disastrous effects on satellites and hydro grids.

Many plant and animal species, on the other hand, live a lot longer. An international team of scientists recently shared details about a tree that has lived for a long time - a very long time. A Stockholm University press release notes, "A Bosnian pine (Pinus heldreichii) growing in the highlands of northern Greece has been dendrocronologically dated to be more than 1075 years old. This makes it currently the oldest known living tree in Europe." To put things in perspective, the tree was a seedling when Byzantine Empire was at its peak. In order to determine its age, the researchers took a core of wood from the outer edge to its center and found 1,075 annual rings. The team is hoping to gain valuable insights into past environmental and climatic conditions by studying trees such as this one. Paul J. Krusic, the lead researcher, noted, "I am impressed, in the context of western civilization, all the human history that has surrounded this tree; all the empires, the Byzantine, the Ottoman, all the people living in this region. So many things could have led to its demise. Fortunately, this forest has been basically untouched for over a thousand years"

A study from Columbia University has shown that graphene, a single atomic layer of carbon in a honeycomb lattice pattern, is the strongest material in the world.  A study from Columbia University has shown that graphene, a single atomic layer of carbon in a honeycomb lattice pattern, is the strongest material in the world. Graphene might be used in the future for flexible electronic devices like a roll up television screen or smartphone. James Hone, leader of the study said their data on graphene gives "experimental evidence that the exceptional strength it possesses at the atomic scale can persist all the way up to samples inches or more in size. This strength will be invaluable as scientists continue to develop new flexible electronics and ultrastrong composite materials." It was previously thought that graphene would weaken if it was not in one large piece, but the new research shows that if pieces are put together, they remained 90 percent as strong as the original. Other research involving graphene has shown that the material can be used as a camera sensor that is one thousand times more sensitive to light than camera sensors currently in use.

Anti-Aging Method Increases Mouse Lifespans By 35 Percent
 
01:03
Researchers have revealed in a new study that they have been able to increase lifespans in mouse by as much as 35 percent--along with good health--by injecting them with a drug that clears away stagnant cells known to contribute to aging-related problems. Scientists may have found a new way to not only extend lifespans by up to 35 percent but also to expand the amount of time spent healthy.  They focused on senescent cells which are those that have become stagnant over time.  Eventually, this material ceases to divide which results in the physical signs of aging like arthritis, frailty, and organ decline. Their accumulation can also pollute nearby healthy areas.  To address these problems, the team genetically engineered lab mice with a mechanism that can clear away the old material when injected with a protein drug. After the treatment, 60 to 70 percent of the senescent cells were wiped out with no known side effects.  As such, researchers were able to increase the rodents’ median lifespan by 17 to 35 percent.  The press release states that the test animals “also demonstrated a healthier appearance and a reduced amount of inflammation in fat, muscle and kidney tissue.”  A company has since been launched to explore similar age-fighting treatments in humans.

Tortoise Sweaters Causing a Buzz
 
01:09
An Etsy shop features tortoise sweaters. The combination of animals and colorful outfits is almost always a crowd pleaser. One creature loving artist is selling sweaters for tortoises on etsy. The coverings are brightly colored, crocheted creations that are meant to reside over the turtle's shell. The artist states "I created this shop to bring joy to other tortoise and reptile fans. 10% of the income from my Etsy shop will benefit the International Reptile Rescue in Canby Oregon. The rest will go towards my own tortoises, as well as future ones I will rescue and rehabilitate." One of the sweaters is a green and orange "stegosaurus" tortoise cozy. Covering the entire shell, the garment wraps around the underside of the reptile to stay in place and add a little extra warmth. Another crocheted sweater boasts a propeller-like design which would help tortoise owners easily find their beloved pet while roaming through the grass. A red and blue x-shaped design resides on the back of the reptile while an attached stretchy band loops around the body, keeping the garment secured. Can you see your tortoise wearing one of these?

The 'world's largest solar-panel power plant' is now up and running in Arizona. The 'world's largest solar-panel power plant' is now up and running in Arizona. Situated on 2,400 acres between Yuma and Phoenix, the 290-megawatt plant will be sending electricity to the state of California for the next two and a half decades. Under the 25 year long contract with Pacific Gas & Electric, Arizona's new photovoltaic power plant will be responsible for providing power to at least 100,000 homes in the neighboring state. If you're going by maximum electricity production, the Agua Caliente plant will generate enough power to supply 230,000 residences. The $1.8 billion facility is owned by NRG Energy, Inc. and MidAmerican Renewables, LLC. Chief financial officer at MidAmerican Renewables, Richard Weech commented 'It is exciting to see this project become fully operational and begin to realise the full benefit of emissions savings with the clean energy generated at Agua Caliente.' With well over 5 million photovoltaic modules scattered over roughly 10 square miles, there is a good reason why so many people are excited about the plant dedicated to clean energy.

A man in France continues to puzzle scientists nearly a decade after he was found to be living with just 10 percent of a typical human brain. A man in France continues to puzzle scientists nearly a decade after he was found to be living with just 10 percent of a typical human brain.  His case was originally published in The Lancet journal in 2007 but was presented last month at the Association for the Scientific Study of Consciousness conference in Buenos Aires.  At the time of the original study, the patient was a 44-year-old man who had been experiencing weakness in his left leg. After examining him, doctors found that about 90 percent of his brain tissue had eroded, with fluid filling the bulk of his skull.  They believe the condition likely occurred as a result of a related brain disorder called hydrocephalus which he had as an infant.  Despite the reduced brain matter, the man lived a relatively normal life; he was a married civil servant with two kids. He also scored an IQ of 75 which is considered low but not disabled.  At the recent conference, cognitive psychologist Axel Cleeremans argued that the rare case shows just how adaptable the brain can be even with an injury.

Strange Signal From Nearby Star Has UFO Hunters Excited
 
01:04
Some astronomers are speculating that a sudden spike in radio signals from a nearby star known as HD 164595 could potentially be from extraterrestrial life, though they acknowledge that more research needs to be done. There is speculation that a star’s abnormally strong signal could be an indication of extraterrestrial life.  According to the website Centauri Dreams, the phenomenon was detected on May 15th, 2015 with the RATAN-600 radio telescope in Russia.  A graph of the recorded radio waves shows a sudden spike amidst relatively consistent activity.  The likely origin has been identified as the star HD 164595 which is about 95 light years from Earth within the Hercules constellation.  The system is particularly intriguing because of its relatively close proximity to this planet and because of its similar age, size, and chemistry to our sun. The star also has a known planet which Centauri Dreams likens to “a warm Neptune on a circular orbit.” Despite this potential evidence, the site acknowledges that it is still too early to “claim the detection of an extraterrestrial civilization.” As such, the Daily Mail is reporting that astronomers from the group known as SETI, or the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence, plans to observe the star further.

Underwater Vehicle Used By Navy SEALs On Stealth Missions
 
01:10
There are a few different kinds of SDVs, or SEAL Delivery Vehicles that operate classified missions in countries around the world. United States Navy SEALS are highly trained military operatives, and their underwater vehicles use some of the most advanced stealth technology available. There are several different kinds of SDVs, or SEAL Delivery Vehicles, and most of their details are kept secret by the military as they are used for a variety of classified missions. Sized to accommodate from one to six SEALs traveling inside, most SDV’s are free-flooding meaning the soldiers are submerged in water, often for hours at a time, using their SCUBA tank, or onboard oxygen to breathe. Now, the Navy has also developed a dry version of the SDV. These vehicles are made out of fiberglass and non-ferrous materials, so that their magnetic and acoustic footprints are kept to a minimum to avoid detection. They are equipped with Doppler navigation, docking systems, and sonar to guide the SDV back to the host submarine after the SEALs have been delivered to the location of the mission. Due to their clandestine design the vehicles are reportedly capable of carrying out attack missions, and underwater charges housed in large cargo holds can be deployed to attach to a ship’s hull for timed or remote detonation.

New Technique Reveals Flash Of Light When Human Egg Activated By Sperm
 
00:54
Researchers at Northwestern University have made a major breakthrough that could help mitigate disappointing – and expensive – in vitro fertilization failures. In vitro fertilization has become the path to parenthood for many, but success can be elusive as it’s difficult to know if the fertilized eggs being used will thrive.  Researchers at Northwestern University have made a major breakthrough that could help mitigate disappointing – and expensive - failures. The team discovered that a spark, described as a ‘zinc firework,’ occurs at the moment a sperm enzyme renders a human egg active.  Based on the size of the biological lightshow, both the health of an egg and the viability of the embryo can be determined.  Noted one of the scientists involved in the study, “If we have the ability up front to see what is a good egg and what’s not, it will help us know which embryo to transfer, avoid a lot of heartache and achieve pregnancy much more quickly.”

Many companies are working on bringing back supersonic flights, but one of them also wants to make low fares part of the deal. Well, relatively low. When the Concorde was up and running, a ticket could run upwards of $20,000. Boom, which is based in Colorado, would like to see round trip journeys happen for closer to $5,000. The company’s plan has attracted a great deal of attention, including that of Richard Branson, owner of Virgin Group, who just optioned 10 of the proposed supersonic jets. At present, plans for the aircraft have it travelling from San Francisco to Tokyo in 4 ½ hours and New York to London, in 3 ½ hours. Those amazing times are based on the plane flying at more than double the speed of sound. Such a feat actually being accomplished is still a way off, as even prototype crafts won’t be ready until late in 2017.

New Nano Material Can Stop Speeding Bullet
 
01:08
A new nano material developed by scientists can stop a speeding bullet. Could paper thin material stop a speeding bullet? Scientists from Rice University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology are working towards that possibility after observing ballistic tests where a composite material called a copolymer polyurethane, was able to stop a 9 millimeter bullet, and even seal the entry point. A disk of the material shows the bullets trapped inside. There was no visible damage or cracking in the test disk. In order to study the polymer, the team had to create a model material that acted similarly at a nanoscale level. Assembling a structure that would shoot tiny glass beads at high speeds into the test material, they were able to see more clearly the results of the impact-absorbing material. Ned Thomas, a Rice University materials scientist, explains, "After the impact we can go in and cross-section the structure and see how deep the bullet got, and see what happened to these nice parallel layers." The nanomaterial being studied as well as further testing could result in protection beyond police vests and soldier's armor. Shield coatings for jet engine turbine blades and space satellites could also become a reality.

A very small porcelain cup recently sold for a whopping 36 million dollars at an auction in Hong Kong. Talk about a valuable antique. A very small porcelain cup recently sold for a whopping 36 million dollars at an auction in Hong Kong. That selling price has made it the world's most expensive piece of Chinese porcelain. The origins of the cup stretch back to the Ming Dynasty, making it about 500 years old. The piece is being referred to as a 'chicken cup' because the exterior design shows a rooster hen and chicks. For a cup that's 5 centuries old, it's in pristine shape. According to the auction house, Sotheby's, there are only 17 cups like the one that recently sold, in existence. Some of those are owned by private collectors while the remaining cups are property of museums. Sotheby's deputy chairman for Asia, Nicholas Chow is thrilled with the impressive sale of the chicken cup. He commented "There's no more legendary object in the history of Chinese porcelain. This is really the holy grail when it comes to Chinese art." The chicken cup now belongs to a collector, who is said to be the 200th richest person in China. The antique will most likely be displayed in the owner's museum in Shanghai.

A magnetically powered, levitating system of transportation is slated to become a reality in Tel Aviv, Israel. Basically the air vehicles are 2 seater pods which will take travelers directly to their intended destination. Death and taxes are two things we can't escape. Increasingly, that's becoming the case for traffic jams as well, regardless of what country you live in. To address that issue, a magnetically powered, levitating system of transportation is slated to become a reality in Tel Aviv, Israel. The city recently appointed the firm, Jenkins Gales & Martinez to oversee the introduction of the SkyTran rail system, designed in part by NASA. Basically the air vehicles are 2 seater pods and will reportedly help alleviate the widespread problem of traffic congestion. The pods are also said to be eco-friendly, quicker and less expensive than traditional methods of public transportation. They propel forward via a guideway which is elevated about 20 feet from the ground. The guideways will eventually contain solar panels which will make the entire system an energy efficient mode of transit. The pods are essentially silent as the overhead connectors hover magnetically. The vehicles are capable of traveling 150 miles per hour, however the initial speed will be much lower until travelers get accustomed to the pods. How do you like the concept?

Researchers affiliated with the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine have announced in a recent study that they have developed a special 3-D printer that is able to produce what they call “living tissue structures.” Specifically, the parts they have been able to create through this method are ears, jawbones, and muscles.  The key to Wake Forest’s system is their printer’s ability to extrude a mixture of hydrogels, a substance with human cells in it, and materials which provide structure but eventually dissolve.  As such, it allows for the formation of sponge-like channels which can be used to get nutrients to interior cells; in previous efforts, the cells would often starve and die.  According to the press release, ahttp://www.bbc.com/news/health-35581454fter the structures were implanted in animals, they “matured into functional tissue and developed a system of blood vessels.”  It goes on to state that the results are promising for the potential viability in humans.  However, this possibility is still years off, as is the ultimate goal is to create custom parts for specific individuals.
