Unraveling the mysteries of life

Unraveling the mysteries of life | Science | Scoop.it

Time, space and matter were created 13.7 billion years ago, when the Big Bang occurred. This pale, blue planet, so termed by Carl Sagan, our earth, came into existence about 4.5 billion years ago. Life originated on earth about 3.8 billion years ago. Our species, the home sapiens, came much later at about 0.2 million years while recorded history is merely 6000 years old.
However in the last 60 years or so, man has started to unravel many secrets of his own existence. There have been extremely rapid advances in science and mankind is now grappling with very profound aspects of life from intelligence, perception, aging all the way to death itself.
Moving forward to the next 60 years, there are several areas of research, which will have an extraordinary impact on our lives as we move forward.

Are hydrogen cars the wave of the future? Toyota thinks so.

Are hydrogen cars the wave of the future? Toyota thinks so. | Science | Scoop.it
The current conventional wisdom is that plug-in electric vehicles will be the clean, sleek cars of tomorrow. Think of Tesla's Model S or Chevrolet's Volt. These cars get most of the media attention, and policymakers tend to toss tax breaks their way.

I guess this is the next big revolution to take place in technology. Hydrogen is the best alternative to Hydrocarbons which cause a lot of pollution and greenhouse gases. Electric vehicles don't have the range although they are a viable alternative in cities. Hydrogen as such is highly volatile and it requires careful handling-this would include transporting it to refuelling  stations, and its transfer into the vehicles themselves. With time to come, all these issues will be addressed, I am sure.

Black holes are 'portals to other universes,' according to new quantum results

Black holes are 'portals to other universes,' according to new quantum results | Science | Scoop.it
Black holes may not end in a crushing singularity as previously thought, but rather open up passageways into whole other universes.

If this is true...
