7 Recent Scientific Discoveries Nobody’s Talking About


Everyone is always talking about technological
advancements and science constantly speeding up with each year. But why don’t we know how dinosaurs went
extinct or if there was ever life on Mars? And what about space travel, hoverboards,
and flying cars?! Ok, we’re not there yet, but here are some
other recent discoveries that bring us closer to a bright future! #1: Evidence of the Moment Dinosaurs Went
Extinct We all kinda know that dinosaurs met their
total extinction when a giant meteorite struck the Earth 66 million years ago. But this information was only a description
of the most probable chain of events. There are tons of other theories, from climate
change to a mass dino allergy to flowers! Well, it seems like debates on this subject
are finally getting closer to the end. Paleontologist Robert DePalma found a huge
slate in North Dakota filled with all kinds of fossils. It’s basically a picture set in stone of
the next moments after an impact with the meteorite that ended the rule of dinosaurs
on Earth. This slate has tons of fish fossils, proving
that the ocean was devastated by this strike. There’s also a mix of fossils from small
mammals that already lived on the surface as well as the fossilized bone fragments of
a triceratops! That means that dinosaurs were alive up to
that very moment! #2: Mars Once Had Huge Rivers
It was already clear to scientists that Mars used to have a so-called “wet period.” But now a team of researchers led by Dr. Edwin
Kite from the University of Chicago provides more evidence for the theory that Mars had
multiple wet periods, the last one ending some 1 billion years ago. While these periods were active, Mars had
rivers much wider than those on Earth, and their flow was constant for a span of over
4 billion years. It’s still unclear how that was actually
possible with Mars’s thin atmosphere, but new questions are exactly what brings us closer
to the truth! #3: New Orca Species Found
No other discovery can become as much of a surprise as when someone discovers a new species,
especially when it’s something as big as a whale! Like, how did we miss that all these years? Well, the ocean is pretty big… Anyway, we now probably have ourselves a completely
new orca species. At the moment, they’re called “type D”
orcas. They’re pretty similar to their more famous
cousins. But they have some distinct features, like
a much more rounded head, smaller white eyepatches, and an overall smaller body size. For now, researchers have taken skin samples
from them and are waiting for the results of a DNA test. If this type D orca is a completely new whale,
this discovery would be a real sensation! #4: Coral Transplantation to Save the Ocean
And here’s more good news from the oceanic world. But first, it’s important to understand
just how crucial coral reefs are. They’re the living heart of the ocean, and
without them, the whole marine ecosystem wouldn’t exist. And even though they seem strong like living
stones, they’re actually very sensitive to their environment. In the last 20 years, a lot of Earth’s coral
reefs have been severely damaged, and over 25% of them are gone. The problem is that it’d take centuries
for those reefs to grow back naturally, and they just won’t do it because the conditions
aren’t right. Luckily, Dr. David Vaughan found a way to
rebuild our planet’s coral reefs, and he pretty much made the discovery by mistake! One day, Dr. Vaughan accidentally broke one
of the corals he was studying and left the piece that fell off in a tank of water. It appeared that this piece alone survived
and began to grow much faster. Since then, Dr. Vaughan has been experimenting
with this “microphragmenting” technique of coral growth and achieved immense success! In fact, his little patches of coral grow
25 times faster than corals normally do! With this advanced method, it’s possible
to transplant these corals to their natural relatives and watch those reefs live again! #5: New Way to Prevent Global Warming
If there’s one real reason to strive for scientific and technological breakthroughs,
it’s gotta be the question of how to stop global warming. This is the greatest threat to life on this
planet, and guess what? That includes us humans! From 100 billion to 1 trillion tons – this
is how much carbon dioxide scientists say we need to take away from the atmosphere by
the year 2050 to prevent catastrophic climate change. Sounds scary, I know, but researchers from
the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology may have the means to do just that. Phew, that’s music to my ears! Their method is based on using hot liquid
metal and liquid electrolyte to catch carbon dioxide from the air and turn it into solid
carbon flakes. The resulting solid carbon can not only be
buried but also used as an energy source. Sounds like a win-win! But this method still needs further development. Let’s hope it’ll be ready in time! #6: Type One Diabetes Treatment
In the past few years, we’ve already had some of the greatest breakthroughs in cancer
and HIV treatment, and the news regarding those diseases hit the world by storm. But here comes another one that really deserves
some praise too! There’s a great probability that the medical
community will find a way to deal with Type One diabetes in the near future. You see, this type has always had doctor stumped,
and it was almost universally admitted to be totally incurable. But the good people from City of Hope, one
of the leading medical centers in the US, don’t think so! The promising research program called The
Wanek Family Project aims to find a cure for this disease in the next 6 years. They’ve already made huge progress. One year ago, everyone thought that Type One
diabetes is an autoimmune disease, which means that it provokes a person’s immune system
to attack otherwise healthy cells in the pancreas. Those cells produce insulin, a lack of which
is basically what diabetes is. The project’s director Dr. Bart Roep turned
that conventional idea upside down with his study, which found that those pancreatic cells
aren’t being destroyed because of an immune system malfunction – it’s because of the
cells themselves. You see, they produce a false distress signal,
and the immune system just does its job right: attacks on demand. But this discovery is just a start, albeit
a really good one! The scientists from the City of Hope have
all kinds of ideas in mind as to how they can cure this problem, from cell transplantation
to growing these cells from scratch. #7: MRI in 70 Seconds
Another great advancement was made on the verge between medicine and programming. Now, if you’ve ever had an MRI scan, you
know that it can be terrifying. Once you’re in that big scary machine, you’re
in it for a long time in complete darkness with strange sounds and constant reminders
that you shouldn’t move at all. With this process taking sometimes over an
hour, it’s even tough for those with strong nerves. As for people with severe claustrophobia,
in many cases they even need anesthesia to bear an MRI scanning. But we now have 5,000 lines of code that will
save so much time and effort in diagnostics! A team of researchers led by Stefen Skare
and Tim Sprenger from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden came up with the idea of mixing
MRI tests with the technology used in much quicker scanning called Echo-Planar Imaging
or EPI. The results are close enough to traditional
MRI scans to be a good foundation for diagnostics. Recent tests of this method showed that multiple
patients can be scanned in the same amount of time a standard MRI machine can do just
one person. I’m sure their work will help save many
lives and make doctors’ jobs a lot easier and more efficient! And what discoveries interest you the most? Dinosaurs, space, medicine, technology? Let me know down in the comments! And don’t forget to give this video a like,

    You can't stop global warming, it's a natural cycle from the sun each 12,900 years. The proof is in blue hole stalactites. It was evident years ago, covered by National Geographic, though they had no idea there was a 12,900 year cycle related to the solar system passing through the galactic axis as well as an exposure to a particle stream from Sirius that comes for a day each 3.5 years for about 1000 years. That particle storm is known well to ancient people. Hindu call this the Samvartaka. Mayans call it the fire of the east or purifying fire. The bible refers to it in Timothy 2 and a few others, cryptic though it may be, yet had to be so as people over time would not understand it's place otherwise. Earth has mountains of proof of this energy storm, and even more of the fact that earth physically flips 120 degrees sometime during the series of energy storms from Sirius. As just one example, all Florida coral is full of fossilized arctic plankton 13k years old.
