science news

Even if you started off your morning with a nice omelette, you probably didn't spare a thought for where it came from, but scientists have long wondered why eggs from different birds can be so dramatically different. Now, after comparing an astonishing 50,000 eggs from 1,400 different bird species, Princeton University biologist Mary Caswell Stoddard finally thinks she's cracked the code, and her theory actually make a whole lot of sense.

Mysterious ‘Planet Nine’ might not actually exist after all

planet nine

Skywatchers have been theorizing and dreaming about a mysterious unknown planet hanging out at the edge of our Solar System for many years. Sifting through an incredible amount of data, both professional scientists and amateur space sleuths have suggested that a planet is hiding somewhere past the recently demoted Pluto, and have repeatedly claimed that they have evidence that the reclusive world is out there. Now, after extensive study of four large bodies in the outer reaches of the Solar System seems to cast some serious doubt on Planet Nine's existence, and it's a huge blow to the effort of many astronomers in the ongoing search.

Scientist says the sun is sneezing on Earth

space news

The sun at the center of our Solar System is one of the big reasons why we're here today, but it can also be a bit of a nuisance from time to time. Coronal mass ejections — when the sun spews a whole bunch of plasma and energy into space — can seriously mess up human communication infrastructure if they happen to graze Earth. For years, researchers have attempted to forecast and predict CMEs in the hopes that warnings could help prevent damage to electronics and the power grid, and when doing so, they've modeled the huge solar blasts as bubbles moving through space. As it turns out, a CME is more like a sneeze.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop responds after NASA calls BS on ‘healing’ stickers

What do you do when you have too much money? Most of us never have to worry about such things, but oftentimes celebrities find themselves with piles of cash and nothing to spend it on. Sometimes they go on benders, or buy a private island, but in Gwyneth Paltrow's case, she started a "wellness" company that is now trying to help sell special stickers that it claims can cure you of anxiety, balance your body's "natural frequency," and even relieve pain. Now, NASA — you know, that little group that does actual science — is calling BS on the whole thing.
