New NASA Instrument Brings Coasts and Coral into Focus

New NASA Instrument Brings Coasts and Coral into Focus

A coastal scene with deep blue seas and a coral reef is beautiful to look at, but if you try to record the scene with a camera or a scientific instrument, the results are almost always disappointing. Most cameras can’t “see” underwater objects in such scenes because they’re so dim and wash out the glaring […]

Bill Nye the “Climate” Scientism Guy

Facts don’t support his hypothesis, so he shouts louder, changes subjects and attacks his critics True science requires that data, observations and other evidence support a hypothesis – and that it can withstand withering analysis and criticism – or the hypothesis is wrong. That’s why Albert Einstein once joked, “If the facts don’t fit your […]

Close Encounters Could Have Led To Cracks On Icy Moons

Close Encounters Could Have Led To Cracks On Icy Moons

The icy and distant moon Charon is the largest of the five known moons orbiting the dwarf planet Pluto. Its surface is dominated by water ice that has cracked over time. But how did these cracks form? Until now, store it was thought that the cracks were the result of geodynamic processes, sildenafil such as […]

NASA Telescopes Find Clues For How Giant Black Holes Formed So Quickly

NASA Telescopes Find Clues For How Giant Black Holes Formed So Quickly

Using data from NASA’s Great Observatories, astronomers have found the best evidence yet for cosmic seeds in the early universe that should grow into supermassive black holes. Researchers combined data from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, Hubble Space Telescope, and Spitzer Space Telescope to identify these possible black hole seeds. They discuss their findings in a […]

POLITICALLY INCORRECT ZONE: NASA discovers Elvis at ‘Alien Megastructure’ next to Walmart in Space

For years now, many on the political right have insisted that modern scientists have become agendized, and allow personal, and even corruption-based biases to steer their findings on key issues such as Global Warming. And while I’m aware that anyone is subject to be biased in ways they may not be fully aware of, I […]

Climate Change: Where is the Science?

Climate Change: Where is the Science?

By Howard Hyde   Is it twice as likely that the Earth is cooling than that it is warming? That humans and fossil fuels have nothing, or everything to do with it, or somewhere in between? Or is it over 99% certain that anthropogenic carbon burning-induced warming is sweeping us to the apocalypse, with all […]

Climate Change Alarmists Desperation

Climate Change Alarmists Desperation

    When our Secretary of State (who has no scientific credentials) says man caused Climate Change is as real as gravity, you know he’s desperate. He said we don’t question gravity and we don’t question ice freezing at 32 degrees Fahrenheit. But, he asks, when scientists tell us man is causing climate change, what […]
