The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil’s Triangle, is a loosely defined region in the North Atlantic Ocean, where a number of aircraft and ships have disappeared. The vicinity of this so-called triangle is among the most heavily travelled shipping lanes in the world, with vessels frequently crossing through it for ports in the Americas, Europe and the Caribbean islands. Popular culture has attributed various

Video games were invented for humans, by humans. But that doesn’t necessarily mean we’re the best when it comes to playing them. In a new achievement that signifies just how far artificial intelligence (AI) has progressed, scientists have developed a learning algorithm that rose to the very top echelon of the esports powerhouse StarCraft II,

The three-body problem, one of the most notoriously complex calculations in physics, may have met its match in artificial intelligence: a new neural network promises to find solutions up to 100 million times faster than existing techniques.   First formulated by Sir Isaac Newton, the three-body problem involves calculating the movement of three gravitationally interacting

The Universe is expanding much faster than scientists predicted, and nobody knows why. A team of researchers has confirmed this dilemma with data gathered using a new telescope technology that relies on shape-shifting mirrors. According to their study, which was published last month in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, precise measurements of

People sometimes forget that oceans contain a lot more than the water you see just beneath the surface. The depths below the ocean’s surface comprise a staggering 95 percent of the Earth’s living space, and much of it is unexplored by humans.    To put into perspective just how deep the oceans go, Xkcd.com created the illustration below (click the

It’s a lovely thought – a tunnel connecting two regions of space-time, a sort of cosmic shortcut. Such wormholes are mostly thought to belong in the realm of science fiction, since if one happened to actually form in our Universe, physics dictates it would be unstable and collapse immediately.   But supposing they could and

Hydrogen peroxide, water’s short-tempered sibling, has helped humans to fight infection since we discovered its antiseptic properties nearly two centuries ago. Unfortunately, it’s pretty unstable, making it tricky to transport where needed.   Now, researchers have found a rather simple way to generate the chemical out of water, air, and electricity, and it could be

The singer previously released videos of “unidentified” objects as part of his To The Stars Academy (TTSA), which where acknowledged by the US Navy. TTSA have now signed a deal with the US Army to enhance exploration into extra terrestrial activity. A statement said: “TTSA’s technology solutions, which leverage developments in material science, space-time metric
