    Cancer Breakthrough: Unexpected Link Discovered Between Most Common Cancer Drivers

    Lead Image: The study discovered connections between the PI3K/Akt and p53 pathways that provide potential targets for novel cancer treatments. An unexpected relationship between two of the most frequent cancer-causing factors might lead to more effective drugs. According to a recent study from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, two of the most common genetic changes that result in cancerous cells, which were previously believed to be distinct and controlled by different cellular signals, are really working together. To treat cancer, researchers have so far concentrated on developing medications that either inhibit one or the other. Treatments that work better could result…

    Russians Building a Satellite-Blinding Laser – An Expert Explains the Ominous Technology

    A powerful enough laser beam could blind spy satellites. According to a recent report in The Space Review, Russia is building a new ground-based laser facility for interfering with satellites orbiting overhead. The basic idea is simple: flooding the optical sensors of other nations’ spy satellites with laser light to dazzle them. Laser technology has evolved to the point where this type of anti-satellite defense is definitely plausible. However, there is limited evidence of any nation successfully testing such a laser. If the Russian government is able to build it, lasers like this would be capable of shielding a large…

    The Pitfalls of Evolutionary Genomics

    Lead Image: Recent research analyzes mathematical models created to deduce conclusions about how evolution works at the level of populations of organisms. A study examines the benefits and drawbacks of evolutionary genomics. Claudius Ptolemy, an astronomer and mathematician from Alexandria in the second century, had a lofty goal. He wrote the Almagest, a magisterial treatise that attempts to explain the motion of stars and the motions of planets. Ptolemy devised a sophisticated mathematical universe model that seemed to replicate the motions of the celestial bodies he had been seeing. Unfortunately, his cosmic plan had a catastrophic weakness at its heart. Ptolemy…

    Don’t Miss: Sturgeon Supermoon + Perseids Meteor Shower, Mercury, Saturn, Jupiter & Vega

    Lead Image: A supermoon rises behind the Washington Monument, Sunday, June 23, 2013, in Washington. Credit: NASA/Bill Ingalls The next full moon is a marginal supermoon and is called the Sturgeon Moon. It’s also known as the Green Corn Moon, the Raksha Bandhan Festival Moon, Nikini Poya, the end of the Esala Perahera Festival, and the Tu B’Av Holiday Moon. The next full moon will be Thursday night, August 11, 2022, appearing opposite of the Sun in Earth-based longitude at 9:36 p.m. EDT (6:36 p.m. PDT). This will be on Friday morning for the time zones east of Cape Verde…

    Unraveling the Mysteries of “Gigantic Jet” Lightning Bursts That Reach 50 Miles Into Space

    Lead Image: The telescopes at Maunakea sit calmly at an altitude of around 4200 meters (13,800 feet) beneath a sky filled with extraordinary light. Gemini North’s nighttime Cloud Cams captured this extraordinary light phenomenon. The column of blue and red lights surrounded by a bright blaze of white light appears so otherworldly that it looks like it must be a special effect. This breathtaking image, however, is entirely real. Credit: International Gemini Observatory/NOIRLab/NSF/AURA/A. Smith New information about an elusive atmospheric phenomenon known as gigantic jets has been uncovered by a detailed 3D study of a massive electrical discharge that rose…
