Reminds me of this episode of X-Files, which was inspired by an excavation in Greenland.

Historians are using facial recognition software to identify people in Civil War photographs.  Old photographs have problems that don't fit into modern facial recognition (lots of beards and profiles rather than full face) but technology is trying to solve that.

A recent experiment may have placed living organisms in a state of quantum entanglement.

It probably already landed (let's be optimistic :p). Now we have to wait for the delay. :sweat:

Even if things go bad with the manned missions, we can always at least set up a prison colony there. What could possibly go wrong, right?

There are a whole lot of things you could find there that are way more valuable than oil.

Not necessarily a discovery, just a theory, but it is very interesting.

 

Dark energy and dark matter could both be the same thing: a negative mass fluid.

It is a discovery, no one has ever done it before and it is scientific data, it's relevant... Not sure why being a smaller discovery makes it somehow irrelevant?

And I'm not sure there have been alot of world-changing discoveries in the topic to begin with - certainly none that have changed our lives as we know it hehe

Not a new discovery per se, but apparently we need find bigger and better particles. Or some such. Time to bring in the bigger guns in the hunt for particles of CERN is to be believed.

 

FCC - Four times larger and ten times more powerful than the LHC. Should they manage to open a gateway to a nightmare dimension in 2050, well, I'm too old to care :grin:

Who knows, maybe that is the answer to the Fermi Paradox. Every civilization eventually destroys their home planet with a particle accelerator. Or their universe.
