When You Die You Actually KNOW You’re Dead Because Your Brain Still Works For A While

When you die you know you're dead because the brain keeps functioning and you know what's happening around you, chilling new research suggsts. Medical experts have long debated what happens when a person dies, with anecdotal evidence of bright lights or sensations, and films such as Flatliners exploring the unknown. But a study suggests a person's consciousness keeps working after their heart sto

Astronomers Capture the Sharpest Image yet of a Monster Galaxy 12.4 Billion Light Years Away

Looking back 13-billion years into our universe's past, a group of scientists first discovered the monster COSMOS-AzTEC-1 galaxy using the James Clerk Maxwell Telescope in Hawai'i and later followed up with observations using the Large Millimeter Telescope (LMT) in Mexico and the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile. What they found was astonishing: not only was this g

Amazing Photos Show Huge Crater Filled With Ice On Mars

We might not be about to have a White Christmas down here on Earth but there is certainly going to be one on Mars by the looks of it. A high-resolution camera called the Mars Express, operated by the European Space Agency, has discovered a gigantic crater on the red planet that is 50km wide and filled with ice. The crater in question is called the Korolev crater and it sits in Mars' northe

A Bright Green ‘Christmas Comet’ Will Fly the Closest to Earth Tonight And Won’t Be This Close Again For Thousands Of Years

Tonight, look up at the night sky and you just might be lucky enough to see a bright, blurry ball with a visible greenish-gray shade. That greenish-gray shade object is a comet that orbits between the Sun and Jupiter will make its nearest approach to Earth in centuries. And this all will be happening right on the heels of this year’s most beautiful meteor shower of 2018 Tony Farnham, is a r

NASA Releases Time-Lapse Of the Disappearing Arctic Polar Ice Cap

NASA posted this video to YouTube with this description: “Arctic sea ice has not only been shrinking in surface area in recent years, it’s becoming younger and thinner as well. In this animation, where the ice cover almost looks gelatinous as it pulses through the seasons, cryospheric scientist Dr. Walt Meier of NASA Goddard Space Flight Center describes how the sea ice has undergone fundam

Man points camera at ice – then captures the unimaginable on film

Photographer James Balog and his team were examining a glacier when their cameras caught something out of the ordinary. The incident took place in Greenland, where James and his mates were gathering images from cameras that had been deployed around the Arctic Circle over the years. James and his crew were looking for some good shots for an upcoming documentary, but no one was prepared for wh

Scientists Discover 512-Year-Old Shark, Which Would Be The Oldest Living Vertebrate On The Planet

A couple of months ago, a group of scientists discovered an ancient shark in the North Atlantic ocean. While they knew that this shark had definitely reached senior age, they didn’t realize until recently that the animal is estimated to be a whopping 512 years old. At 512 years, that would make this ancient shark the oldest living vertebrate in the world. Even though over half a millenni

NASA Finds Perfectly Rectangular Iceberg In Antarctica As If It Was Deliberately Cut

Sometimes you see an image that’s pretty hard to believe it is not a poor attempt at Photoshop. This is one of those images. On Twitter, NASA’s ICE team responsible for polar research posted a bizarre picture showing an iceberg that was almost a perfect rectangle. The image was taken by NASA’s Operation IceBridge, a fleet of research aircraft that image Earth’s polar ice. The peculia

This 512-Year-Old GreenLand Shark Is The Oldest Living Vertebrate On The Planet

It’s hard to imagine anything still alive that was born in 1505. That was the year that Martin Luther became a monk and King Henry VIII called off his engagement with Catherine of Aragon… in short, a bloody long time ago. But that’s exactly what scientists believe they have found in the form of one massive Greenland shark swimming in the icy waters of the Arctic Ocean. The shark is e

Astrobiologist Tries Cooking In Antarctica At -94ºF (-70ºC), And The Result Will Crack You Up

Cyprien Verseux is a glaciologist and astrobiologist, currently working on the most remote scientific base in the world: Concordia Station in Antarctica. Even the International Space Station, 400km above the Earth, is closer to civilization than this place, deep in the icy wastes of our most isolated and inhospitable continent. When not busy collecting samples and doing research about climate
