DNA as Biomolecular Data Storage Medium
Bio research has confirmed DNA as a robust archival data storage system. To retrieve the data, all scientists do is place the DNA in a solution to 'read' or decode the binary sequencing like a Turing decoding machine. In the future, humans AND any living thing can be used to carry data, and it will be kept intact for millenia. Bio-computing might seem like a legit and alternative method for data keeping in the near future..

3 Versions of Quantum Mechanics
Quantum Mechanics is simply a group of theories that offer math models explaining how physical phenomena works at microscopic size or atomic and subatomic levels. There are many theories that explain how the universe exists via quantum mechanics, from the original cloud atoms to the alternate realities existing all at the same time proposition. And there are math models that define all of these theories too. From 30 years ago, atoms no longer spin around an orbital. They are a micro cloud of everything and everywhere giving solid and more to our universe.

Is Luna Really Earth's Twin Planet?
Our Moon is too big for a Satellite and only because its orbit's barycenter is locked within the surface of the Earth. Also, NASA is planning to send astronauts back onto the moon and even set up a semi-permanent research facility there. Hints of electricity on the moon and a possible thin atmosphere in place to enable static electricity might also be studied once we get people back there.

Space May Be an Entity! Bipolar Gravity is the New Cosmic Model
A proposed new cosmic model may now be studied better by observing the orbit of a small planetoid with a satellite that is 43 times as far away as the Earth is from the Sun and located in the nether void of the Kuiper belt. If the observation laboratory confirm the model, it may change how astrophysicists apply quantum theory to cosmic size entities and not just microscopic ones.

Finger Counting Systems ARE Better
Remember the nightmare of learning Math by memorizing flash card values? At that time teachers discouraged kids from counting with their fingers as a weaker method of learning how to count. But fast forward to the past decade, learning experts are discovering that finger counting systems that simulate the abacus are actually faster than computing off memorized values. Used by ancient civilization in their own math learning systems across the world, know why finger counting systems ARE better than ever!

Einstein's Theory Confirmed: Gravity Can Be Detected As Energy
From observing two black holes combine, a National Science Foundation special observatory system (LIGO) recorded gravity waves emanating from the anomaly. This paves the way for studying graviity as a new branch of astrophysics: as part of space-time fabric in the form of energy that can be observed and measured. It will be interesting to watch what prehistoric and forgotten advanced science can be recovered by developing modern day, gravity astrophysics.

The Big Bang Never Was
Astrophysicist Saurya Das proposes a whole new perspective about the Big Bang theory that WORKS with Einstein's proven theories, that space is a guantum fluid of gravitons. Which refutes the dark matter proponents in theoretical physics saying Einstein missed out on dark matter. Gravitons if proven will indicate that Space itself is an energy state or quantum fluid and may be proof that the universe has existed forever as it is without a Big Bang singularity as origin. NASA and a consortium are putting up a new satellite designed for measuring more gravity waves.

Boeing's Reversible Fuel Celll Power Plant: The Future of Microgrid Power
Boeing invented a new reversible fuel cell that generates energy as an engine and recharges itself off its own H20 byproduct. It will be used to power U.S. Navy microgrids and Department of Defense forward bases that need sustainable and redundant power systems in addition to what they have right now. Boeing's reversible fuel cell power plant technology may also have future applications for microgrid power for off-grid communities, disaster zone shelters, far-off research facilities in the Arctic and even in space missions.

Planck Satellite Data Confirm: Earth May Be the Center of Universe!
Final reviews of the Planck probe data mapping cosmic background radiation and the SLOAN Digital Earth Telescope Sky Survey in 2005 show that the Earth may actually be the center of the universe. The Copernican model proposes that Earth is just one solar system among a multitude. But thrice in 20 years, space science has measured and mapped CMB data where far-off galazies are actually aligned to the axis and equator of the Eart. The Earth may be really be special and nothing is random about the universe. Schools and astrophysics should be teaching a different sort of astronomy and physics in the future.

Russian Start-Up's Microgel Technology Purifies Industrial Waste Water
Just when you thought oil and toxic metals polluted rivers and waterways were doomed to oblivion, BMG Intepco, a Russian start-up based in England won accolades in the final competition of new technologies offered for purifying industrial waste water using natural microgels that absorb oils and effluent chemicals then force the dirt to settle at the bottom. The process is benign and has very low environmental impact which makes it very attractive as a low cost green clean-up tech. If ASEAN can support teh tech, rivers like Pasig's can be green again.

Invaluable Indian Inventions
An advanced society even before the Chinese, Indian scientists and mathematicians and their ancient peoples have invented plenty of invaluable ideas and knowledge as well as objects that the world often takes for granted. You might not know that Indians created the ruler or Wootz Steel for Damascus blades? Probably even the world's first space ships in Vimanas. Indians were also the first to establish an exclusive learning community where wisemen taught the young--the first university.

An Electric Sun and Universe?
Astrophysicists are excitedly testing a new theory that the Sun is actually powered by the external electrical plasma field of space as a capacitor. Space is one gigantic electrical filed of currents and magnetic rivers powering stars all around.. The sun is not a nuclear fusion core that functions according to the Standard model of astrophysicists but an electromagnatic plasma-gas giant. This controversial theory, the Electric Sun, has various New Age adherents even among seasoned scientists.

Petroleum May NOT Be Biological in Nature
NASA has discovered that atmospheric methane in one of Saturn's moon was produced from a geological source and not a biological source which casts doubt on age old knowledge that crude oil was produced from mulched organics such as forests and biologcal things. There are new theories that abound that the earth naturally recycles excess carbon dioxide and other carbon in its atmosphere by having its oceans soak up the compound and when the carbon mixes with the ocean's hydrogen hydrocarbons are supposedly created--first as heavy hydrogen and even possibly petroleum. If the Earth truly has a geological process for replenishing petroleum oil naturally, how will this knowledge work for or against green design and tech for energy and power generation?
