Physicists expressed skepticism in September when measurements by French and Italian researchers appeared to show subatomic neutrino particles breaking what Einstein considered the ultimate speed barrier by traveling a fraction faster than light.

Astronomers finally know why the first documented supernova was super-sized.

The exploded star was observed by the ancient Chinese in the year 185, and visible for eight months. It was later found to be a bigger-than-expected supernova remnant, 8,000 light years away. Each light year is about 6 trillion miles.

No major medical group recommends routine PSA blood tests to check men for prostate cancer, and now a government panel is saying they do more harm than good and healthy men should no longer receive the tests as part of routine cancer screening.

The panel's guidelines had long advised men over 75 to forgo the tests and the new recommendation extends that do-not-screen advice to healthy men of all ages. The recommendation by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, being made public on Friday, will not come as a surprise to cancer specialists. Yet, most men over 50 have had at least one PSA blood test, the assumption being that finding cancer early is always a good thing. Not so, said Dr. Virginia Moyer of the Baylor College of Medicine, who heads the task force.

NASA's dead six-ton satellite fell to Earth early Saturday morning, starting its fiery death plunge somewhere over the vast Pacific Ocean.

Details were still sketchy, but the U.S. Air Force's Joint Space Operations Center and NASA say that the bus-sized satellite first penetrated Earth's atmosphere somewhere over the Pacific Ocean. That doesn't necessarily mean it all fell into the sea. NASA's calculations had predicted that the former climate research satellite would fall over a 500-mile swath.

The U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education, came out with their report on homeschooling. It's been all the talk on websites and blogs and Facebook.

The USAToday analysis is simplistic and ignores basic economic facts, while trying to create a sense that homeschoolers are somehow whiter and richer. They are misleading, and neglected to mention the more impressive growth in numbers of non-white children who homeschool.

Engineers at Duke University have designed a breakthrough gadget that captures microwaves and converts them into electricity.

Engineers at Duke University have designed a breakthrough gadget that 'harvests' background microwave radiation and converts it into electricity, with the same efficiency as solar panels. The development, unveiled on Thursday, raises exciting possibilities such as recharging a phone wirelessly and providing power to remote locations that can't access conventional electricity. And the researchers say that their inexpensive invention is remarkably versatile. It could be used to capture 'lost' energy from a range of sources such as satellite transmissions, sound signals or Wi-Fi.

A leaked copy of the world's most authoritative climate study reveals scientific forecasts of imminent doom were drastically wrong.

The Mail on Sunday has obtained the final draft of a report to be published later this month by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the ultimate watchdog whose massive, six-yearly 'assessments' are accepted by environmentalists, politicians and experts as the gospel of climate science. They are cited worldwide to justify swingeing fossil fuel taxes and subsidies for 'renewable' energy. Yet the leaked report makes the extraordinary concession that over the past 15 years, recorded world temperatures have increased at only a quarter of the rate of IPCC claimed when it published its last assessment in 2007.

A new study paints a nuanced picture of outcomes for young people as they age out of foster care and/or the juvenile justice system in Los Angeles.

A comprehensive study released this week takes a sobering and nuanced look at the experiences of youth as they age out of Los Angeles County's foster care and/or juvenile justice system. The study, funded by the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation and conducted by the University of Pennsylvania with the L.A. County Chief Executive Office, uses administrative data in the domains of public welfare, criminal justice, health, mental health, substance abuse, employment, earnings and educational attainment to asses how well these vulnerable youth are doing as long as eight years after exiting either or both systems.

Why won't America stand up for herself? Why is the country, once a country which possessed courage and conviction sitting idly by and allowing itself to be taken to the slaughter without so much as a whimper?

The answer to the above question lies in the psychological concept known as Learned Helplessness as discovered by Martin Seligman. "Learned helplessness occurs when an animal is repeatedly subjected to an aversive stimulus that it cannot escape. Eventually, the animal will stop trying to avoid the stimulus and behave as if it is utterly helpless to change the situation. Even when opportunities to escape are presented, this learned helplessness will prevent any action."

Traditional history suggests that dinosaurs and humans never crossed paths because their existence on earth was separated by tens of millions of years.

But a new discovery by scientist Mark Armitage of California State University may well turn the history of human civilization upside down. Armitage was recently on a dig in Montana when he came across the largest triceratops horn ever unearthed. Upon further examination of the unique specimen with a high-powered microscope Armitage discovered something that no scientist had ever seen on a dinosaur sample before - soft tissue. When he published his findings his colleagues were stunned, because the existence of soft tissue, which should degrade and disappear over millions of years, suggests that dinosaurs didn't go extinct 60 million years ago, but rather, were alive and well in North America just several thousand years ago.
