i had heard about the dna and dung beetles here i read about the tractor beam on some news site

The internet? That should suffice...

"I ******* love science", its a page on Facebook. They post all kinds of interesting things.

try www . newscientist . net for a size - make a free member and read the most in depth going article (for laymen) on the internet. (If you're a free-member you can read new articles for 20-25 days.)
Or http:// phys . org - not as orginized, but also ok.

Both sites have different sections like weopon tech, space tech, brain, nano, drugs etc. etc. (But NewScientist has the best comment section, with relatively good retoric and often intelligent discussions)

(and the first one is older than 1 week fyi)

they measured the temperature of the universe? thats a big ass thermometer
#129 to #123 - ucmerolling (01/29/2013) [-]
**ucmerolling rolled a random image posted in comment #2552923 at FJ RPG ** i believe the term is, "rectal thermometer".
User avatar #132 to #129 - bokkos (01/29/2013) [-]
"Large Rectal Thermometer" if we're being true to the statement.

**ucmerolling rolled a random image posted in comment #483 at What? Logic? Stop that! ** big*, although the word "big" hardly does this thing justice, it's gotta be more like gargantuan, massive, huge, extra large, xxxl even.

Ah yes, the ELRT. I remember when NASA flew it up in the 70s

I think everyone would be quite happy if these 'This Week in Science' posts became a weekly FJ tradition of sorts.
#135 to #88 - anon (01/29/2013) [-]
Except for the fact that nothing is cited. Yeah, let's blindly believe these 'facts' that we're told.

Wow. That sounds awfully familiar to FJ's old enemy, the banana.
User avatar #152 to #135 - gammajk (01/29/2013) [-]
You realise that these can all be found with a 30 second google search, right?
User avatar #160 to #88 - Crusader (01/29/2013) [-]
It wouldn't be so bad if they linked to reputable sources that proved the facts to be correct.
As it is now, it's just blindly believing in something.
And that's religion.

What do you use when you want to watch porn? Find pictures? Google. Use it.
User avatar #209 to #207 - Crusader (01/29/2013) [-]
Not everywhere on google is a reliable source.
Plus, you could quite as easily say that at the end of an essay, but it still doesn't prove anything, if you want people to believe you critically, then provide citation.
User avatar #102 to #88 - icametocomment (01/29/2013) [-]
Yes please.
User avatar #108 to #88 - Hreidmar (01/29/2013) [-]
Given the enthusiasm this idea is greeted with, if OP doesn't do it I might take a shot at it myself.
User avatar #112 to #88 - wishingwell (01/29/2013) [-]
but then this just becomes useless facts - if there's sources to the 'original' material/articles, or more than just a headline, then it'd be more knowledge per se.
If I don't get a job soon (this week), I might aswell do one my self
User avatar #97 to #88 - heartlessrobot (01/29/2013) [-]
I'd enjoy that, mostly because it would mean a faster advancement in scientific fields, but he's gonna run out of **** to post, because such studies usually take more than a week.
User avatar #105 to #97 - retardedcalculator (01/29/2013) [-]
Yeah, but there are so many fields of science that there is bound to be something interesting in any of them.....
User avatar #103 to #97 - Hreidmar (01/29/2013) [-]
Advancements are happening all the time, and even if they're not particularly important they can still be fascinating. A few weeks ago I mentioned to my chemistry class that it was discovered that a particular mixture of acids would etch crystalline patterns into a sheet of copper heated to exactly 250 C. Though this isn't a very practical or major discovery, it was enough to provide us with 2 full hour's quite vivid discussion.

A minute tractor beam... everyone knows things that start minute can turn into big **** (televisions for example)
I'm so ******* excited.
User avatar #189 to #24 - eldinarcus (01/29/2013) [-]
Thanks to your comment I realized OP was not talking about a measure of time when he said minute.
User avatar #267 to #189 - ICEDgrunge (01/29/2013) [-]
The way the word is pronounced is "My Newt", it just means that something's small or insignificant, if you didn't catch on already. I know the pronunciation always baffled me when I first heard the word.
User avatar #485 to #267 - eldinarcus (01/30/2013) [-]
I know the word lol, I just thought he was saying the minute for time.
User avatar #486 to #485 - ICEDgrunge (01/30/2013) [-]
Alright, sorry for wasting your time friend, I was just making sure is all.
User avatar #61 to #24 - xtnega (01/28/2013) [-]
The tractor beam is called a Bessel beam, however it can't simply be upsized (It is, after all, just photons acting in a certain way). But I'm sure we'll get there eventually.

So far, the tractor beam can only tug on polystyrene particles in water. Also, because of the mechanism by which it operates, if you were to scale it up for use on macroscopic objects, the intensity of the laser would vaporize the target.   
   
Still, it's a step in the right direction and should be taken as nothing but good news.

Cells are quadruple helixed?

WHAT A TWIST!
#360 to #114 - redrubber (01/29/2013) [-]
I think they found that cancer cells have quadruple helixed DNA strands only, and that it may greatly help the detection of early cancer cells. Praphrasing from SciShow on youtube, so I might've gotten some details wrong.

probably referring to the large band of stars visible on clear nights, one of the arms of the milky way.

The only one I have doubts on is "Scientists measured the temperature of the universe."
Seems kind of hard to do.
#109 to #96 - derpyllama (01/29/2013) [-]
Not all all. Objects with temperature (everything in the universe) emit light in blackbody curves, and we can tell the temperature of the object by where the peak wavelength of the curve lies using Wien's displacement law.
