HOUSTON, Texas (PNN) - August 25, 2015 - This mysterious object spotted by NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover will look eerily familiar to millions of Star Wars fans.
BOSTON, Massachusetts (PNN) - August 25, 2015 - Right now, the typical 3D printer is a tool for making plastic objects. Assembling them in layers according to a pre-programmed plan, the printers can quickly make weirdly shaped parts, but they’re often limited to working with just one material at a time. Additive manufacturing, as 3D printing is also known, offers so much more.
GENEVA, Switzerland (PNN) - August 12, 2015 - What in the world is going on over at CERN? Are scientists playing around with forces that they simply do not understand?
The European Organization for Nuclear Research (also known as CERN) is purposely smashing particles into one another at astonishingly high speeds. If you think that sounds incredibly dangerous, you are not alone. Scientists all over the world have suggested that the bizarre experiments taking place at CERN could open a black hole, destroy the entire world, or open up a portal to another dimension. But none of those concerns have been taken seriously. Instead, scientists at CERN just continue to smash more and more particles into each other at higher and higher speeds.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Kalifornia (PNN) - August 10, 2015 - Want to know who will win the 2016 Fascist Police States of Amerika presidential election? You might be able to find out simply by running a Google search on each candidate’s name, according to a new research by experts at the Amerikan Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology.

DRESDEN, Germany (PNN) - July 28, 2015 - Interplanetary travel could be a step closer after scientists confirmed that an electromagnetic propulsion drive, which is fast enough to get to the Moon in four hours, actually works.
NEW YORK (PNN) - July 27, 2015 - One of the best things about the Web is that it’s interactive. You communicate with friends and family, publish your own site, and leave comments on other people’s work. But a huge part of what we do online is simply consuming content.
A satellite broadcasting company called Outernet wants to bring all this content many of us take for granted to the estimated 3 billion people without Internet access. That catch is that in order to get content to as many people as possible efficiently and cheaply, Outernet’s connection goes only one way.
BOULDER, Colorado (PNN) - July 21, 2015 - Researchers have a hard time understanding how tiny changes to networks of neurons in an animal's brain can affect its behavior. Now a team of researchers has figured out a way to tinker with the neural networks of mice in real time, using a wireless controller that can both shine light on the brain and deliver drugs to it. The device even lets scientists control the movements of their test mice from afar.
EASTER ISLAND (PNN) - July 17, 2015 - As if they weren’t mysterious enough.
The giant stone statues scattered around remote Easter Island are even more impressive than they first appear. Hidden from view, the heads are attached to bodies that extend meters underground.
BERKELEY, Kalifornia (PNN) - July 17, 2015 - Artificial intelligence has the potential to be as dangerous to mankind as nuclear weapons, a leading pioneer of the technology has claimed.
Professor Stuart Russell, a computer scientist who has led research on artificial intelligence, fears humanity might be “driving off a cliff” with the rapid development of AI.
