Massive squid caught near Antarctica

Professor calls it a "gelatinous blob with seriously evil arms on it" set to make its acting debut in the next horror movie The squid was eating a hooked toothfish when it was hauled from the deep by the vessel San Aspiring, and is now lying frozen in a Timaru coolstore "It is likely that it is the first intact adult male colossal squid to ever be successfully landed," Fisheries Minister Jim Anderton said today "The scientific community will be very interested in this amazing

New printer prints one page per second

If this isn't a hoax, its amazing New inkjet printer technology that analysts believe will revolutionize the imaging industry was unveiled today by secretive Silverbrook Research The company has released astounding videos of desktop, photo and wide-format printers that print pages and photos 5 to 10 times faster than products from current printer market leaders HP, Canon, Epson and Lexmark “This thing is gigantic, we've been in this business for 20 years and I've never se

The bees are dying in massive numbers

This is sad, millions of bees across America are dying off and no one knows why The absence of bees will ruin a $14 billion agricultural industry It could be the result of insecticides but no one is sure enough It could be a number of factors finally reaching a critical mass for bees Certianly its something to watch in the near future Bees are far more important than just for honey The phenomenon is recent, dating back to autumn, when beekeepers along the east coast of the US started

Caves found on Mars

A cave would be a great place to set up your base if humans ever reach Mars It would provide protection from the elements and if you could seal the end give an airlocked structure with little work Not to mention the obvious as well, a cave would be the most obvious place to find life Scientists studying pictures from Nasa's Odyssey spacecraft have spotted what they think may be seven caves on the surface of Mars The candidate caves are on the flanks of the Arsia Mons volcano and

Genetically modified maize may cause liver and kidney problems

Looks like Monsteranto will be under attack over reports on its franken food BTW most of the world won't even let it over their borders, and now you can see that such precautions might not have been so silly afterall Environmental group Greenpeace launched a fresh attack on genetically modified maize developed by US biotech giant Monsanto, saying on Tuesday that rats fed on one version developed liver and kidney problems Greenpeace said a study it had commissioned that was published

Mysterious cold water mills off Sydney

OZ seems to be surrounded from Perth to Sydney in strange crap ! What is going on over there SYDNEY: A mysterious, huge and dense mass of cold water is milling off the coast of Sydney, baffling researchers and delighting fishermen Experts currently know very little about what causes this large eddy or the influence it is having on the ecosystem of the surrounding Tasman Sea "What we do know is that this is a very powerful natural feature which [is tending] to push everything else

1000 lumen LED developed - new technologies emerge

Get ready for a hand held data projector, a search light the size of a penlight, and a wide number of light intensive applications Not to mention new styles of domestic lighting with LEDs built in that will last for 100 years or so and never need changing The Ostar Lighting LED, which will be launched on the market this summer, can provide sufficient light for a desk from a height of two meters, for example Its small size also enables the creation of completely new lamp shapes A lumen

Manta rays try to fly like birds

This is bizzare, manta rays are filmed jumping out of the water and flapping their wings, err fins, or whatever According to several researchers, manta rays are often seen jumping out of the water, as high as 2 feet, and then returning to the sea Scientists are not sure why this jump takes place - it is just one of the many things yet to discover about the manta [flash=425x350]http://wwwyoutubecom/v/6nYXyFxDkLk[/flash] Here is another video of it, its so bizzare [flash=425x

Massive water deposit found on Mars

Enough ice to cover the entire planet in 3 feet of water All you have to do is explode a few nukes overhead to release it However does free water boil off in the absence of a decent atmosphere New measurements of Mars' south polar region indicate extensive frozen water The polar region contains enough frozen water to cover the whole planet in a liquid layer approximately 11 meters 36 feet deep A joint NASA-Italian Space Agency instrument on the European Space Agency's Mars Express s

Sophisticated surgery in pre history

In this facinating article we see just how 'primitive' man was not that primitive There is direct evidence of sophisticated operations and reconstructive surgery Although the article is interesting the writer ends up by dismissing the intelligence and ingenuity of people so long ago by attributing it to UFOS sad http://wwwufoareacom/aas_surgerieshtml There is even more in http://enwikipediaorg/wiki/Trepanation showing how old boring holes in peoples heads is as a practice

Forests are rapidly advancing in Canada leading to global warming

Hows that for a confused situation As the century has heated up, the treeline in Canada has grown higher replacing the existing tundra The new trees are absobing the sunlight and emitting it as heat Therefore warming up the climate even more Scientists found that the treeline advanced considerably-as much as 85 metres elevation-on warm, south-facing slopes and tree density increased significantly-as much as 65 per cent-on cooler, north-facing slopes [quote]The mechanism of change ap

Scientists suprise themselves by creating impossible 2 dimensional sheet.

It exists because it undulates slightly giving it the 3rd dimension Its also only 1 atom thick Scientists have created the thinnest material in the world and predict that it will revolutionise computing and medical research A layer of carbon has been manufactured in a film only one atom thick that defies the laws of physics Placed in layers on top of each other it would take 200,000 membranes to reach high enough to match the thickness of a human hair The substance, graphene, wa

Scientists find hole in the earths crust

Imagine a cut that never heals, that seems to be the case in this massive hole where the earths crust seems to be missing Scientists are to sail to the mid-Atlantic to examine a massive "open wound" on the Earth's surface Dr Chris MacLeod, from Cardiff University, said the Earth's crust appeared to be completely missing in an area thousands of kilometres across The hole in the crust is midway between the Cape Verde Islands and the Caribbean, on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge The

Construction of the worlds highest bridge

This bridge is amazing, like something out of a science fiction story, You wouldn't want to suffer from vertigo when driving across it The Millau bridge over the River Tarn in the Massif Central mountains is more than 300m 984ft high - taller even than the Eiffel Tower With its concrete and steel pillars soaring high above the morning fog in the Tarn Valley, the construction makes a spectacular sight Click on the link to see the construction of the bridge, some amazing pictures

Take lavender or tea tree oil and grow breasts

Not good if you are male, scary Three young boys grew breast tissue after exposure to lotions and shampoos containing lavender or tea tree oil, researchers say It is not uncommon for boys to develop breast tissue during puberty or just after, but the boys affected by the plant oils were aged four, seven and 10 The natural oils may be “gender-bending” chemicals mimicking effects of the female hormone, oestrogen, the findings suggest The boys were otherwise normal,
