The Earth’s rotation is slowing, which is tied to a new notion about oxygen levels. THE EARTH’S SPIN IS SLOWING DOWN, and experts believe it’s due to low oxygen levels, which aided the formation of early life. The Earth’s rotation has been gradually slowing since its birth some 4.5 billion years ago, and as a result, its days have gotten longer. While it may go unnoticed by humans, it appears to be sufficient to cause big changes in our environment. According to new research, the lengthening of days is connected to increased oxygenation in the Earth’s atmosphere. Because Earth’s days…

Archaeologists have been blown away by the discovery of a ‘precious’ 2,200-year-old Roman shipwreck near Sicily. ARCHAEOLOGISTS were ecstatic to discover the remnants of a “precious” Roman-era shipwreck off the coast of Sicily, calling it “one of the most important” discoveries in recent months. Near Isola delle Femmine, northwest Sicily, a Roman ship carrying jars of antique wine sank to the bottom of the Mediterranean. The ship’s remnants have been dated to around 2,200 years ago, indicating that it predates the birth of Jesus Christ. The wreck was discovered at a depth of roughly 300 feet, according to a statement…

Archaeologists are taken aback by the discovery of a pre-Viking massacre grave: ‘Nothing could have prepared us.’ ARCHAEOLOGISTS were taken aback when they discovered a mass grave that pointed at a horrible killing on Sweden’s coast before the Vikings arrived. The Vikings are regarded as among of history’s most ruthless warriors. Between 700 and 1100 AD, they left their mark on Europe. During this time, numerous Vikings left their homelands in Scandinavia and sailed to adjacent countries such as Britain and Ireland in longboats, gradually capturing lands and pillaging goods. When they arrived in Britain, Britons greeted them by walking…

Iran’s anxieties are rising as the country takes a “key step” toward nuclear capability: ‘Beyond civilian use!’ says the narrator. IRAN is apparently refining uranium “beyond civilian usage,” in what is described as a “key milestone” in the country’s potential to manufacture nuclear weapons, as global tensions rise. Armed men commandeered a Panama-flagged oil tanker in the Gulf of Oman and commanded it to proceed to Iran. Although it is unclear who hijacked the ship, analysts believe Tehran is to blame. The reports were denied by Iran’s Revolutionary Guards as a justification for “hostile action,” yet they came after a…

As NASA warns Xi and Putin threaten a new space race, Joe Biden is urged to engage with them. According to NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, Joe Biden has been pushed to engage with China after Beijing announced a new cooperation with Russia that could risk a new “space race.” When it comes to space, the United States is the global leader, but China is catching up – and quickly. It has recently completed a series of successful missions, the most recent of which was Tianwen-1, an interplanetary sample-return mission to Mars. Beijing has joined the United States in setting its…

The tablet that “presented the earliest ever image of the Tower of Babel” startled archaeologists. ARCHAEOLOGISTS were taken aback when they were granted unrestricted access to a previously unknown site that revealed the “first ever photograph of the Tower of Babel.” The story of the Tower of Babel is still one of the most enigmatic in the Bible.

Others believed it was only legend or folklore. The delicate…

The Amazon rainforest has ‘reached the point of no return,’ according to scientists, who have issued a doomsday warning. The Amazon rainforest has reached a “point of no return,” according to scientists, who are sounding apocalyptic warning bells about the burning of the “Lungs of the Earth.” The Amazon rainforest is now spewing more carbon than it absorbs, in a terrible twist tied to the degradation of Brazil’s most valuable ecosystem. Until recently, the Amazon rainforest was thought to be a carbon sink, helping to mitigate the worst consequences of climate change. The Amazon, however, is now releasing a billion…

Albert Einstein proved Isaac Newton wrong, according to Neil deGrasse Tyson. NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON explained how Albert Einstein disproved Isaac Newton’s laws of motion and gravity while building on them for his own groundbreaking research. Science nowadays moves at breakneck pace. What was once believed to be true can be blown out of the water by some new, cutting-edge piece of technology in less than a year. One example is the COVID-19 vaccine: at one of the fastest periods in human history, scientists joined together and solved a problem that would normally require decades of research. The renowned astrophysicist Neil…
