ABOUT SCIENCE

DEFINITION: Science (from Latin scientia, meaning "knowledge") is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe. In an older and closely related meaning, "science" also refers to this body of knowledge itself, of the type that can be rationally explained and reliably applied. Ever since classical antiquity, science as a type of knowledge has been closely linked to philosophy. In the West during the early modern period the words "science" and "philosophy of nature" were sometimes used interchangeably and until the 19th century natural philosophy (which is today called "natural science") was considered a branch of philosophy. In modern usage however, "science" most often refers to a way of pursuing knowledge, not only the knowledge itself. It is also often restricted to those branches of study that seek to explain the phenomena of the material universe.

SCIENCE CULTURE - GETTING SCIENCE INTO THE HEARTS OF PEOPLE WITH HANDS ON EXPERIENCES:
Science festivals are used to showcases science and technology with the same freshness and flair that would be expected from an arts or music festival. Events can be varied, including lectures, competitions, races or battles, exhibitions, workshops, live demonstrations of experiments, guided tours, and panel discussions. There may also be events linking science to the arts or history, such as plays, dramatised readings, and musical productions. The core content is that of science and technology, but the style comes from the world of the arts.

WORLD IMPACT: Science and technology have had a major impact on society, and their impact is growing. By drastically changing our means of communication, the way we work, our housing, clothes, and food, our methods of transportation, and, indeed, even the length and quality of life itself, science has generated changes in the moral values and basic philosophies of mankind.

Beginning with the plow, science has changed how we live and what we believe. By making life easier, science has given man the chance to pursue societal concerns such as ethics, aesthetics, education, and justice; to create cultures; and to improve human conditions. But it has also placed us in the unique position of being able to destroy ourselves.

Science is a scary, powerful, helpful, wonderful and INCREDIBLE thing to Experience at INCREDCON!

How Numbers Can Lie!
Itís easy to laugh off an academic squabble. When overeducated combattants square off in an arena that most people donít even know exists, few take notice. Yet some reverberate outside the academic world and I suspect that Paul Romerís assault on mathiness, ably summarized by Justin Fox at Bloomberg View, will be one of them.

'Heroes and Legends' NASA Attraction to Feature Astronaut Hall of Fame!
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. ó A quarter century after its start, the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame is set to be re-launched as a high-tech interactive public attraction intended to inspire a new generation of explorers. NASA officials, exhibit designers and more than 25 Hall of Fame astronauts gathered at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida on Friday (May 29) to announce "Heroes and Legends,"a new gallery that will incorporate and feature the hall when it opens in 2016.

We could travel to new worlds in NASA's starship Enterprise
US space agency commissions design for its first warp speed spaceship


NASA announced in 2012 that it was working to build a "warp drive" that could enable "faster-than-light" travel. Two years later and the space agency hasn't built a spaceship capable of such speeds yet - but thanks to artist Mark Rademaker, we now know what one could look like. The result is the IXS Enterprise, a ship that shares similarities with both its science fiction Star Trek namesake, and NASA's real-world space shuttle.

EmDrive: NASA's New Starship Engine Breaks The Laws Of Physics
An experimental engine that is gaining acceptance among NASA scientists may power a future generation of starships, and it only has to break the known laws of physics to do so. The EmDrive is a new type of engine that may represent a huge advancement for NASA's space program. The engine doesn't require propellant, according to Mashable, which is one of the most important parts of current space-travel systems. Rather, the EmDrive utilizes electricity to generate microwaves, which are then used to provide thrust in the vacuum of space.

Off Switch for Aging Cells
esearchers have discovered a switch that helps control the growth of telomeres - the timekeepers of our cells. Flipping the switch could turn off aging cells and encourage healthy ones to keep generating later in life. The study was published in Genes and Development last week. Each time a cell divides, its entire genome is duplicated. We depend on newly-divided cells to constantly replenish our skin, liver, lungs, and other organs as we age, but most of our cells can't divide forever. With each division, telomeres shorten. These little caps at the ends of chromosomes affect how quickly our cells age: when they become too short, the cells stop dividing. Recent work suggests that telomere length is associated with human illnesses and even lifespans.

Partial reversal of aging achieved in mice

Harvard scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute say they have for the first time partially reversed age-related degeneration in mice, resulting in new growth of the brain and testes, improved fertility, and the return of a lost cognitive function.

NASA Confirms There's a Space-Time Vortex Around Earth
NASA confirmed, through an epic space-time experiment, that predictions of Albert Einstein's theory of gravity are correct: there is a space-time vortex around Earth. Space-time around Earth is distorted just as Einstein's theory predicted. How did they do this? Using Gravity Probe B, of course! The experiment resulted in 13 new technologies and Clifford Will, a professor and expert in Einstein's theories, says the discovery will one day be "written up in textbooks as one of the classic experiments in the history of physics."

Tesla Announces Powerwall Solar Battery
Tesla announced a new solution for home energy in 2016, with their Powerwall Home Battery, the first product from new business division, Tesla Energy. The company will focus on ending dependence on grid power, helping homeowners convert to solar energy. The Powerwall does just that. The stationary battery (a rechargeable lithium-ion) can power an entire household, off the grid.

Scientists Develop Mesh That Can Separate Water and Oil
Researchers at Ohio State University have created a stainless steel mesh which boasts an invisible oil-repelling surface coating. This makes it possible for water to pass through the mesh, while oil is trapped, filtering out the oil from the water. This could have huge implications for future oil spills and environmental cleanups.

There's Water on Mars
In April 2016, NASA reported that their Curiosity rover had found water the below the Martian surface. Though still thought to be hostile to life, the discovery contradicts previous theories, which held that conditions on Mars were too cold and arid for liquid water to exist.

Scientists Develop Batteries That Can Charge in Seconds
As technology develops at an ever more rapid pace, the one thing that can hold back development is the battery that powers your smart-gadget. However, engineers at the University of California have developed a supercapacitor that can store as much charge as a typical battery, but can be recharged in just seconds (as opposed to hours). This new technology could have lasting impacts for hybrid and electric vehicles, space technology, and consumer electronics.

NASA Confirms Existence of an Ocean on One of Jupiter's Moons
Jupiter's moon Ganymede, the largest moon in our solar system, has been lying to us for years. Beneath its surface there is, in fact, a giant ocean beneath its surface. Since 1970, scientists have suspected this, but only since observations made with the Hubble Space Telescope has NASA been able to prove the existence of the ocean. The telescope spotted aurorae (think the Northern Lights), which moved in a pattern consistent with the existence of an ocean, as oceans affect the behavior of aurorae. Ganymede you tricky minx! Though still not the best place to look for life, this discovery does indicate that, as astronomer Heidi Hammel put it, "As far as we can tell, almost everywhere we look [in the solar system] there's water."

Scientists Slow the Speed of Light
A team of scientists in Scotland sent individual particles of light (called photons) through a special mask which changed their shape, and slowed their speed to less than light speed. And, interestingly, when returned to "free space" the light particles continued to travel at slower than light speeds. Light speed is regarded as absolute, and though it slows when passing through certain materials, like glass and water, it usually speeds back up again. But not in this case. The discovery may change how scientists have to think about measuring distances in space, and may have some practical applications as well.

Duke Announces First Laboratory Grown Contracting Human Muscle
For the first time ever in a lab, researchers have grown human skeletal muscle that contracts and responds to external stimuli the same way native tissue does. The team at Duke University grew the muscle using human cells that had progressed beyond stem cells, but weren't yet muscle tissue. The muscle responds to pharmaceuticals, electrical pulses, and other stimuli. This discovery could revolutionize personalized medicine and drug discovery, as new drugs could possibly be tested without human subjects and enable doctors to grow a patient's muscle for testing, rather than take a painful or even impossible muscle biopsy.

First Man Made Leaf, with Implications for Space Travel, Is Invented
Julian Melchiorri, a graduate of the Royal College of Art invented the first man-made, biologically functional leaf. The leaf, made of chloroplasts and silk protein is capable of absorbing carbon dioxide and light, and releasing breathable oxygen. This has huge implications for the future of long distance space travel, which is often limited by oxygen supplies.

First New Antibiotic in 30 Years Is Discovered
Scientists announced in January 2016 that they had discovered the first new antibiotic in almost 30 years. Teixobactin was found to treat a number of common bacterial infections (tuberculosis, C. diff, etc.) and could help prevent the growing resistance to other antibacterial drugs. The team of scientists at Northwestern University discovered the new drug using new methods, which could be a promising first step towards discovering even more new anitbiotics. Teixobactin could be available in as soon as five years.

Researchers Create a Three Cent Lens That Turns Your Smartphone Into a Microscope
Do you want to own a microscope, but only have three cents and an iPhone to your name? Well, great news because the University of Houston has created an optical lens that can be placed on your phone, turning it into a microscope. This could change the ways schools teach science, and has promising potential for small and/or isolated clinics that need access to a microscope, but cannot otherwise gain it.

Raffaello D'Andrea: The astounding athletic power of quadcopters
In a robot lab at TEDGlobal, Raffaello D'Andrea demos his flying quadcopters: robots that think like athletes, solving physical problems with algorithms that help them learn. In a series of nifty demos, D'Andrea show drones that play catch, balance and make decisions together - and watch out for an I-want-this-now demo of Kinect-controlled quads.
