Pen That Lets You Draw Any Color In The World

pen that combines an RGB sensor and a five-color ink cartridge allows artists to match any pigment they can see. The pen is known as Scribble, and it’s not yet available for sale. However, if you can’t wait to get your hands on it, and the $150 pricetag does not deter you, you can sign up to an alert (and be encouraged to contribute to their Kickstarter campaign). “For the color blin

Light From 12 BILLION Year Old Explosion Reaches Earth

A gamma ray burst that occurred 12.1 billion years ago has been detected, marking one of the earliest known examples of these ultra-powerful explosions. It's also one of the brightest ever seen. Gamma-Ray bursts are rare but exceptionally powerful explosions, thought to occur as neutron stars form or merge. "As NASA points out, gamma-ray bursts are the most powerful explosions in the unive

Walking on Water: Easier Than It Sounds

Walking on water is a miracle, right? Maybe not. Pretty much anyone can do it, as long as you have enough cornstarch to add to the water. Combining cornstarch and water creates oobleck; a non-Newtonian fluid. That means it doesn’t behave like a typical fluid. While it does pour like a liquid, it acts like a solid when force is applied. As a result, pouring enough of it into a pool will allo

New Video: Neil deGrasse Tyson Destroys Climate Deniers

For 11 episodes now, the groundbreaking Fox and National Geographic Channel series Cosmos has been exploring the universe, outraging creationists, and giving science teachers across the nation something to show in class every Monday. In the process, the show has been drawing more than 3 million viewers every Sunday night, a respectable number for a science-focused show that is, after all, a majo

‘Godzilla of Earths’: Alien Planet 17 Times Heavier Than Our World Discovered

A new kind of ‘Godzilla’ planet - so-called because of its huge size - has been discovered 560 light years from Earth, raising hopes of finding rocky worlds that could sustain life. Named Kepler-10c, the planet is 17 times more massive than our planet, and has been named a 'mega-Earth'. Astronomers didn't believe such a world could exist because they believed anything so large would grab hyd

BRITISH SCIENTISTS CLONE DINOSAUR!?

Scientists at Liverpool's John Moore University have successfully cloned a dinosaur, a spokesman from the university said yesterday. The dinosaur, a baby Apatosaurus nicknamed “Spot,” is currently being incubated at the University's College of Veterinary Medicine. The scientists extracted DNA from preserved Apatosaurus fossils, which were on display at the university’s museum of natural scie

Lake Superior Still Has Ice Despite Air Temperatures In the 80s on Memorial Day Weekend

The Weather Channel Facebook friend Ben Ellison sent us this photo standing on a chunk of ice in Lake Superior on May 25, 2014. The temperature at the time in Duluth was 80 degrees. The first 80s since the week after Labor Day induced a full-blown case of summer fever in the northern Great Lakes on Memorial Day weekend. This led to the odd spectacle of folks heading to the Lake Superior

New Baby Dinosaur Fossil Reveals Cause of Death

photo credit: Philip J. Currie, Robert Holmes, Michael Ryan Clive Coy, Eva B. Koppelhus It’s a pretty rare event to find complete fossils in good condition. After millions of years any number of things could happen to destroy fossils before they are discovered and documented by scientists, if the animal even fossilizes at all. Finding well preserved baby animals is particularly hard, since

FAKE OR REAL?! GHOST ATTACK CAUGHT ON CAMERA! Aggressive Spirit Attacks Man Caught On Tape

The echoes of departed spirits often show up on camera when those in shot were unaware of their presence. But, as this spine-chilling video shows, sometimes the undead are more than capable of making their presence felt. It purports to show the startling moment that a phantom pushes a man to the floor before seizing hold of his leg and dragging him along a deserted corridor. But just as
