Free Ivy League Education: Access Over 2,000 Classes From MIT For Nothing | Begs The Question “Why Even Attend College?”

by CHIRPon August 4, 2016
This is a repost from our friends over at Futurism and was written by the founder of CHIRP. ‘Over the past 15 years, MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) has been recording and compiling lectures/course material from over 2,200 of their courses and have made it all available for free on their Open Course Ware website. Is […]

New Stem Cell Fillings Allow Teeth to Regenerate

by CHIRPon July 8, 2016
Eliminating the need for root canals, scientists have developed a way to regenerate teeth with stem cells. The team behind the new discovery have earned a prize from the Royal Society of Chemistry for what judges called a “new paradigm for dental treatments.” Scientists from the University of Nottingham and Harvard have revolutionized the way we […]

Nevada to Begin Testing Autonomous Passenger Drones

by CHIRPon June 15, 2016
Chinese company EHang and the state of Nevada are set to test automated flying passenger drones by the end of this year! With flying passenger drones only a thing of science fiction, with the advances in drone technology in the past few years, they are more a reality than ever. Called the Ehang 184 Passenger Drone, […]
Brain Implants Can Allow People To Control Machines With Their Mind

Brain Implant Developed In Australia Can Allow People To Control Machines With Their Minds

by CHIRPon June 6, 2016
Scientists in Australia are currently in the process of developing an implant that will give paralyzed and heavily disabled patients the ability to control machines through their thoughts as well as monitor and predict seizures. Able to record specific brain activity and function, the tiny implant known as astentrode will eventually be placed into a blood vessel located […]

Watch This Time-Lapse of NASA’s Expandable Habitat Inflating On The ISS

by CHIRPon May 31, 2016
Just this past Saturday, NASA successfully deployed the first ever expandable habitat on the ISS (International Space Station). Astronaut Jeff Williams inflated the habitat called the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) with the help from ground control. Controlling a valve, he gradually released air into the module in about 25 short bursts. By inflating the expandable habitat in bursts, […]

Indian Space Craft RLV-TD

India Has Successfully Launched And Recovered A Reusable Space Craft

by CHIRPon May 26, 2016
India has just joined the reusable space craft game, and they’re rocket looks awesome. Launched and recovered just this week by the ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) around 9 AM local time, the rocket reached a height of 43 miles and then safely glided to a landing. At only 7-meters long, the prototype reusable spacecraft is […]

MIT's Invisible Cream Bandage

MIT Have Developed A ‘Second Skin’ Cream

by CHIRPon May 24, 2016
Biology
Researchers at MIT have developed a “second skin” of sorts. Applied in the form of two creams, once combined they form a very mechanically strong and invisible bandage. Resisting water/washing and tightening the skin, the new discovery has potential applications in both home use, cosmetics and medical procedures. FROM THE SOURCE

entropy directly linked to time

New Study Suggests That Dark Energy Is The Reason Time Moves Forward

by CHIRPon May 24, 2016
The Second Law of Thermodynamics tells us that the disorder of a closed system like our universe must always increase, never decrease. Also known as ‘entropy’, it’s the reason that things do no reassemble or come back to life. When objects like stars, our planet and humanity are created, they add energy to the universe. This in turn adds […]
