Scientists successfully divert lightning strikes with laser device

Scientists successfully divert lightning strikes with laser device

Scientists have successfully diverted lightning strikes for the first time using a powerful laser beam directed at the sky. This looks to be the future of novel protection strategies. Without recovering Thor’s hammer, this is probably the next best way of controlling the fierce phenomenon of lightning. Scientists have demonstrated a first in the world of photonic studies, successfully diverting the natural path of a lightning strike by pointing a powerful...

NASA’s James Webb Telescope discovers first known rocky planet

NASA’s James Webb Telescope has peered deep into the universe and discovered the first known planet of rocky formation. Bearing an uncanny resemblance to Earth, LHS 475b is now the subject of intense observation.  Peering into the vast expanses of the universe is now possible thanks to the James Webb Telescope, in greater capacity than before anyway.  Successor to the Hubble Space Telescope, the James Webb Telescope has already provided us...

Scientists make historic breakthrough in quantum entanglement

Scientists make historic breakthrough in quantum entanglement

Scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory have uncovered a new kind of quantum entanglement, giving us an insight into a freaky phenomenon that causes particles to be intrinsically linked across cosmic distances. We’re about to explain a scientific phenomenon that once bamboozled a certain Albert Einstein, so grab a coffee and strap in. Scientists at the Brookhaven National Laboratory have completed a mind-bending study which sheds some light on the mystery of...

Social media ‘weight loss’ trend causes Ozempic shortage

Social media ‘weight loss’ trend causes Ozempic shortage

The Ozempic injection, which keeps blood sugar levels in check for patients with Type 2 diabetes, has been in shortage for months following tenuous claims online that celebrities are using it to lose weight. In 2022, social media inspired many of the ways we sought to improve our wellbeing – but not always for the better. Some began self-diagnosing themselves after being bombarded with mental health content...
