Russia Plans to Develop a Quantum Teleporter Within 20 Years
While it probably wouldn't have to do with Star Trek's 70th anniversary, researchers that are part of a state-backed strategic development program in Russia say they plan to develop a quantum-based teleportation device within the next 20 years.

While such a miraculous device might sound like it's a long way from being developed, Russian tech-sector investor Alexander Galitsky points to recent breakthroughs in quantum teleportation that hint that what is being done at the molecular level might one day be applied to the macroscopic. "It sounds fantastical today, but there have been successful experiments at Stanford at the molecular level. Much of the tech we have today was drawn from science fiction films 20 years ago."

The Mystery Deepens in the Case of Fluctuating Star KIC 8462852
Last October, researchers with the Kepler Planet Hunters program announced the discovery of unusual patterns in the light output of a star indexed as KIC 8462852, patterns that could only be explained by massive objects in orbit around the star, blocking a significant portion of its light. While many theories were put forward to explain the phenomenon, ranging from proto-planetary debris to massive comets, all of the explanations failed to fit what was being observed -- except for the otherwise controversial idea that the light might be blocked by massive alien artifacts.

First Mammalian Climate-Change Casualty: The Bramble Cay Melomys Wiped Out by Sea-Level Rise
Australian researchers have announced the first mammalian species to have been driven extinct by man-made climate change, with the loss of a rodent known as the Bramble Cay melomys, also known as the mosaic-tailed rat. First documented in 1845, this species was found only on the Great Barrier Reef's Bramble Cay, a tiny coral cay with an average area of only 8.9-acres (3.62-hectares). The creatures have not been seen since 2009, and a recent attempt to search for individuals came up empty-handed.

Climate Change is a Present-Day Reality: May 2016 Breaks Even More Temperature Records
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has released their temperature data for the month of May 2016, showing yet more broken temperature records around the globe, fueled in part by a record-breaking El Niño, estimated to have contributed to roughly 20 percent of the observed temperature increase.

The Laying on of Hands Challenge
Wednesday June 22, 2016
We've heard a lot about host Jeremy Vaeni's trickster-like experiences involving moving into a new home with his new love, Carol. This week, we hear from her for the first time. And then... Jeremy makes an open offer for scientific study of the energy that moves his body when he rests his sense of self, as Carol and he have made a startling discovery about it.

2,200-Year-Old Antikythera Computer's Purpose has been Deciphered
Recovered from a 1st-century Roman shipwreck in 1901, the Antikythera Mechanism is the world's oldest known analog computer, at an estimated 2,200 years old. While the device's mechanism has long since been known to have involved astronomical calculations, its full nature has been shrouded in mystery, with the mechanism's approximately 30 bronze gears having corroded into a single lump over the millennia that it lay on the seafloor. However, new examinations by a multi-national research team have deciphered nearly all of the surviving text that had been inscribed on the device by its builder from ancient Greece.

New Conversion Method turns Carbon Dioxide into Stone
A great deal of the carbon dioxide that our industry produces can be extracted at the source before it gets into the atmosphere, where it would otherwise act as a greenhouse gas, trapping solar radiation before it can radiate back out into space. While the gas can be trapped, storage becomes an issue, especially given the sheer tonnage that is emitted by power plants and factories across the globe. But a new process may allow CO2 to be processed into solid rocks, made up of stable compounds that won't enter the atmosphere.

Largest Coal Producer in the U.S. Funded Climate Change Denial Groups
A new report from the U.K's Guardian newspaper has unveiled that Peabody Energy, the U.S.'s largest coal producer, was actively funding over two dozen groups that advocated a policy of climate change denial, including various trade associations, corporate lobby groups, and conservative think-tanks. While long suspected by environmental groups, Peabody's role in climate change denial was uncovered when the company filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in April.

“These groups collectively are the heart and soul of climate denial,” says Climate Investigation Center founder Kert Davies, referring to the groups funded by the coal giant. “It’s the broadest list I have seen of one company funding so many nodes in the denial machine.”

Science Discovers the Secret of Superstorms
A new study has been released by renowned climatologist and climate activist Dr. James Hansen, that warns of dire consequences if humanity fails to curb it's addiction to fossil fuel use. These consequences include sea level increases and an ice sheet melt that may far exceed previous predictions, and he predicts the inevitability of the formation of massive superstorms, as illustrated by Whitley Strieber and Art Bell in their 1999 book, 'The Coming Global Superstorm'.
