Scientists given permission to create GM babies

Scientists have been given the go-ahead to create genetically modified humans, it has been revealed. The fertility regulator known as the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (HFEA) have allowed scientists to create a DNA-altering technique in embryos. As a result, researchers at the Francis Crick Institute in London will conduct further experiments into creating genetically modifying people. The only thing[Read More…]

New super-ocean discovered 400 miles beneath our feet

New super-ocean discovered 400 miles beneath our feet

Scientists have recently discovered an ocean 400 miles beneath the ground which could fill our oceans three times over, it has been revealed. The revelations about this giant reservoir of water was recently made after researchers spent decades theorising over what lies beneath. This new discovery appears to suggest that the Earth’s surface water actually came from within, as part[Read More…]

Ancestral memories can be passed down our DNA, according to new findings

Scientists reveal memories and ancestral experiences ‘inherited’ via our DNA

Memories may be passed down to future generations through DNA, according to a new study by US scientists. Researchers from Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta said that the emotions and experiences of our mother and fathers are passed down through future generations and inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. This may help to explain how[Read More…]

Stress can change the shape of your brain, research shows

The phrase ‘use your brain’ has taken on a whole new meaning, thanks to one pioneering scientist who has discovered how strong emotions such as stress or happiness can literally can change the shape of our brains. According to Rick Hanson, author of  Hardwiring Happiness: The New Brain Science of Contentment, Calm, and Confidence, the physical shape of the brain[Read More…]

Levitation made possible through sound vibration

Levitation made possible through sound vibration

Whoever said levitation wasn’t possible was lying – and now it’s been scientifically proven. Well, sort of. Swiss scientists have invented a device which allows several objects to be levitated at a time – through the use of sound vibration. A toothpick, water droplets, coffee granules and bits of polystyrene are just some of the objects that have been flying[Read More…]
