Archaeologists Found A Massive Black Coffin In Egypt, And The Internet Is Freaking Out

Referred to around the world as the ‘cradle of civilization’, Egypt has been a literal crypt of historical secrets. The newest discovery from beneath the cradle came in the form of a massive sarcophagus, constructed from black granite. Local authorities, in the Sidi Gaber district of Alexandria, came across the tomb during a routine archeological dig for a new building construction site. Measu

Scientists Have Converted Carbon Dioxide Into Clean Air

A chemistry professor has found a way to trigger the process of photosynthesis in a synthetic material, turning greenhouse gases into clean air and producing energy all at the same time. The process has great potential for creating a technology that could significantly reduce greenhouse gases linked to climate change, while also creating a clean way to produce energy. The findings of his rese

A Monster Asteroid Bigger Than The UK Is Now So Close To Earth That It’s Visible To The Naked Eye

A gigantic asteroid with a surface area four times bigger than the UK has drawn close enough to our planet that it’s now visible without a telescope. The space rock 4 Vesta, which is the fourth largest known asteroid in the solar system, will light up the night sky until July 16.

The Internet Can’t Stop Trolling Flat-Earthers With 25+ Hilarious Memes

Millennials, the generation that thinks they know it all. Yes, we have unlocked all the secrets of the universe, including the REAL shape of the earth.

Despite overwhelming scientific proof, flat-earthers are out there spreading their n

NASA’s $1 Billion Jupiter Probe Just Sent Back Stunning New Photos Of Jupiter

Traveling above Jupiter at more than 130,000 miles per hour, NASA’s $1 billion Juno probe took its ninth set of stunning flyby images on October 24. But the sun slipped between the giant planet and Earth for more than a week, blocking the spacecraft from beaming home its precious bounty of data. Now that the conjunction is over, however, new raw image data from Juno’s ninth perijove — as

NASA Has Just Released 2,540 Stunning New Photos of Mars..

If it’s quiet solitude and beauty you seek, there is no better place than the surface of Mars. Mars has earned its moniker as the red planet, but the HiRISE camera aboard NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) can transform the subtle differences of soils into a rainbow of colours. For 10 years, HiRISE has recorded gorgeous – and scientifically valuable – images of Mars. Its photos

The Milky Way Galaxy Is Much Bigger Than We Thought

It’s no secret that the Milky Way is big, but new research shows that it may be much bigger than we ever imagined. The research, described May 7 in the journal “Astronomy & Astrophysics,” indicates that our spiral galaxy’s vast rotating disk of stars spans at least 170,000 light-years, and possibly up to 200,000 light-years. It’s hard to fathom just how far that is. If you could rid

Australia Doesn’t Exit And People Who Live There Are Actors Paid By NASA – Flat Earthers Claim

There's a growing number of people who seem to think the world is, in fact, flat. But it gets better. They also insist that Australia is actually just one big hoax. According to a viral Facebook rant, the entire country (and presumably the 24 million people that live there) is completely FAKE. The idea resurfaced at a some recent gathering of the so-called Flat Earthers in the Birmingham rece
