Mind-Bending Study Suggests Time Did Actually Exist Before The Big Bang

 

“According to a straightforward interpretation of general relativity, the Big Bang wasn't the start of 'everything'.

 

“Taking Einstein's famous equations at face value and making as few assumptions as possible, a team of researchers has rewound the clock on our Universe to find it wouldn't lead to a stopping point at all, but would take us through a different kind of beginning into a flipped space.”

Ancient druid healing 'treatment' shows potential for killing today's superbugs

 

“Faced with the rising threat of drug resistant pathogens, researchers are all but giving up hope that new treatments can be easily cooked up in the lab.

 

“One recent discovery gives us hope that novel antibiotics are easier to find than we think, perhaps in plain sight right under our very feet. And it's possible their curative properties could have already been recognised centuries in the past.”

Simple animations by a NASA scientist 'prove' the speed of light is torturously slow

 

“In a perfectly empty vacuum, a particle of light, which is called a photon, can travel 186,282 miles per second (299,792 kilometers per second), or about 670.6 million mph (1.079 billion kilometers per hour).

 

“This is incredibly fast. However, light speed can be frustratingly slow if you're trying to communicate with or reach other planets, especially any worlds beyond our solar system.”
