According to a Duke University psychology study, 45 percent of everything we do on a daily basis factors in those daily habits. That's wh

Teens put all their Money in a Dangerous Project that’s Getting Global Attention

As a kid, Joshua Farahzad was thrilled by the very idea of rockets. Watching an aerospace thruster explode with the energy of a nuclear weapon to send a hundred ton vessel into the atmosphere, basically blew his mind. Moreover, it launched him into his own mission that shaped the next several years of his life. By age 19, the Duke University student was just as fascinated with the idea of sending rockets into space as he’d ever been. For some time, he didn’t do much with that fascination. But a certain

Deep-sea can be a terrifying place even for fish that live there. But at the bottom of the ocean, where sun's luminous rays cannot reach, several living organisms have developed bioluminescence to prey on smaller fish and creatures. However, there are evolutionary adaptations for threat response as well. Some deep-sea fish have evolved an ultra-black skin that can absorb 99.5 percent of the light to enable them to blend in the dark.
