While there’s evidence of volcanic activity in Mars’ ancient past, it was presumed to have been quiet for millions of years. But now, orbiters have spotted a large volcanic deposit that appears to be relatively fresh – only about 53,000 years old – which may lend weight to the idea that the Red Planet was recently, or still is, habitable for subsurface microbes.

Nathanael Blake at the Federalist nails it, as he describes how many on the left have gotten so used to masking up and locking down, that’s it’s actually become part of their identity.
It seems many have become addicted to being shut-in, addicting to the idea of safety at any and all cost.
By turning modern scientific tools on an antibiotic discovered 70 years ago, researchers have unearthed a previously unknown mechanism it uses to pierce and pop superbugs like balloons. Promisingly, the scientists have also demonstrated how this approach to taking out bacteria can be supercharged by combining it with other antibiotics, potentially offering a new form of defense against deadly, drug-resistant bacteria.
The accumulation of plaque inside the arteries can be an insidious condition with grave consequences that include blood clots and strokes, but luckily it does give off some tell-tale signs. Researchers in the UK have developed a new type of glowing probe that focuses on one of them, increasing its fluorescence in the presence of a key enzyme and possibly acting as an early warning sign for cardiovascular disease.
Tiny robots could serve all kinds of useful functions, but shrinking their actuators has proven challenging. Now researchers at the University of Wollongong (UOW) in Australia have made artificial muscles that surpass your puny natural ones, inspired by the “supercoiling” of DNA strands.

Finally someone other than us edumicated dopes are telling the truth about the Covid scam.
An actual doctor has the courage to tell the truth, or at least ask some very obvious questions, like where has the flu gone? Every year millions contract the flu and tens of thousands die, but not this season.
A fascinating new study from a team of US researchers has used machine learning techniques to develop algorithms that can analyze naturalistic driving data and detect mild cognitive impairment and dementia in a driver. The work is still in the preliminary stages, however, the researchers claim it could be possible in the future to detect early signs of dementia using either a smartphone app or devices incorporated into car software systems.
- The U.S. Army’s Lancer Brigade showed off a video from its new Enhanced Night Vision Goggle-Binoculars.
- The ENVG-B displays a higher-resolution image than previous night vision devices.
- The goggles also include augmented reality capabilities and allow soldiers to see wirelessly through weapon sights.
