The fact that Filipinos are not fond of saving is worrying due to a bothersome outcome- they are not prepared for emergencies. And as a result, many of them will fall into debt and be incapable of funding their needs in times of sickness. So why are Filipinos not saving money? Sad to say, there is no specific answer. But it’s primarily…

Credit: Ian Joughin Global warming has caused extreme ice melting events in Greenland to become more frequent and more intense over the past 40 years according to new research, raising sea levels and flood risk worldwide. Over the past decade alone, 3.5 trillion tonnes of ice has melted from the surface of the island and flowed downhill into the ocean. That’s enough melted ice to cover the entire UK with around 15 meters of meltwater, or cover the entire city of New York with around 4500 meters. The new…

Credit: National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian Institution A man’s claim to be the great-grandson of legendary Native American leader Sitting Bull has been confirmed using DNA extracted from Sitting Bull’s scalp lock. This is the first time ancient DNA has been used to confirm a familial relationship between living and historical individuals. The confirmation was made possible using a new method to analyse family lineages using ancient DNA fragments, developed by a team of scientists led by Professor Eske Willerslev of the University of Cambridge and Lundbeck Foundation GeoGenetics Centre. The results…

    Teams evaluate Hubble safe mode event, history of telescope leads to JWST

    Lead Image: The Hubble Space Telescope. Image Credit: NASA Thirty-one years after its launch, and 12 years after its most-recent servicing mission, the NASA/ European Space Agency (ESA) Hubble Space Telescope remains in safe mode on orbit as operators work to determine why the iconic observatory ceased science operations at 02:38 EDT on October 25. The latest safe mode event continues to publicly show the telescope’s age as its systems gradually deteriorate without servicing — all while NASA, ESA, and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) prepare for the December launch of a successor to Hubble in the James Webb Space…

Hustak (STScI) An international team of scientists, using the ground-based Gemini Observatory telescope in Chile, is the first to directly measure the amount of both water and carbon monoxide in the atmosphere of a planet in another solar system roughly 340 light-years away. The team is led by Assistant Professor Michael Line of Arizona State University’s School of Earth and Space Exploration, and the results were published in (October 27, 2021) in the journal Nature. There are thousands of known planets outside of our…
