It is strongly suspected that these Amerindians have never made contact with the modern world. Assuming this is not a hoax or error of some sort, the captured images are nothing short of incredible -- as if the anthropologists had traveled back in time, as George Dvorsk... More

Worms calculate how much the strength of different tastes is changing — equivalent to the process of taking a derivative in calculus — to figure out if they are on their way toward food or should change direction and look elsewhere, says University of Oregon biologist Shawn Lockery, who thinks humans and other animals do the same thing.

The digital revolution now engulfing our world emerged from the events during and immediately after the Second World War, when intellectual titans such as Alan Turing, John von Neumann, Norbert Wiener, and Claude Shannon roamed the Earth. Many of the predictions they made for the future in those early days are now reality, or something close to it. Turing foresaw computers as artificial intelligenc... More

First there was the nuclear arms race of the 1950s. The space race followed quickly in the 1960s. While these nationalistic competitions continue today in 2010, the real race of the 21st Century may be the raw computing power to produce intelligent systems. About a year ago H+ reported on how IBM's supercomputer nicknamed "Roadrunner" was knocked off the top perch by the Cray XT5 Jaguar. The C... More

Finally experiments have been funded to test the viability of diamond mechanosynthesis as described in detail by Robert Freitas and Ralph Merkle. This is a major step towards achieving the long held vision of molecular nanotechnology as envisioned by Eric Drexler. UPDATE: Based on an interview of Robert Freitas in 2007. Based on the computational chemistry work, their latest estimates suggest... More

Magnetic forces at the center of the galaxy have twisted a nebula into the shape of DNA, the first time it has been observed in the cosmos. The DNA nebula is about 80 light-years long and about 300 light-years from the supermassive black hole at the center of the Milky Way. Magnetic field lines at the galactic center are about 1,000 times stronger than on Earth. They run perpendicular to the ... More
