Scientists think they've finally found the mechanism behind grey hair and baldness. Check it out!
Learn about the breakthrough discovery of the Beibeilong sinensis dinosaurus. The existence of this oviraptor was, until recently, unknown to researchers. It is therefore a new species, which scientists have named Beibeilong sinensis. The dinosaur lived about 90 million years ago!
We put triboluminescent, or "Smash Glow" crystals in a blender. Triboluminescence is the effect of light being emitted when something is broken, smashed, or otherwise broken. The substance in this video is a particular type of chemical called triphenylphosphinebis(pyridine)thiocyanato copper(I). Enjoy!
Researchers from the University of Windsor in Canada found a substance that works better than chemotherapy for cancer, without harming healthy cells. They have made more compounds in the laboratory to mimic the anti-cancer effect of the spider lily, a common plant. "They are extremely selective. Healthy cells are not being damaged, and the cancer cells were killed," said Professor Siyaram Pandey about the substances.
Most of us would believe that levitation is impossible. Of course we know that magnets can attract or repel metal objects. But what makes it possible to lock an object in space and keep it there? Josh Van der Zalm, nano-science student places a super-cooled ceramic plate over a magnet and then shows how it remains locked in whatever position he places it in. He even demonstrates how the plate can be forced to levitate in a circular path over a track. You have to see it to believe it!

NASA Released 100 New Photos Of Pluto In This Breathtaking Video! NASA's New Horizon spacecraft took over 9 years to reach Pluto, and the footage has now been released in the video below. We have never before been able to see such clear detail in photos of the dwarf planet, as it is more than 3 BILLION miles away. The New Horizon mission was the first mission that was able to capture a total view of our solar system, and now we're looking forward to the footage it sends back in 2019 of even more distant worlds! We hope you enjoy the video as much as we do!
A biodiverse 'herbal lay' can help improve farming by restoring soil biology, say researchers. This nutrient-rich grass is also the perfect feed stock for so-called 'green gas' power plants, as Matthew Stock reports. Credit to Reuters.

When it's -25°C/-13°F outside, soap bubble mixtures freeze faster than they pop, making for some very fascinating effects! However, frozen bubbles are still very fragile creatures, so 'ChrisRatzlaff' experimented with different recipes to create a durable bubble wall that won't pop in the slightest breeze. Check out the stunning results show to you here in real time.
