For every ten people hit by lightning, nine will survive. But what are the lasting effects of being exposed to hundreds of millions of volts? Sometimes they’ll keep the clothing, the strips of shirt or trousers that weren’t cut away and discarded by the doctors and nurses.   They’ll tell and retell their story at

Scientists studying the pattern of circadian rhythms have found that one central body clock could be controlling several others at the same time. By examining fruit flies – which, like humans, have several circadian clocks affecting the rhythm their daily biological processes – researchers have found evidence of a single ‘master’ clock that leads all other internal clocks related

Changing your meal times could be enough to reset one of your internal body clocks, researchers have found, giving us new insight into the relationship between when we eat and our body’s circadian rhythms. While previous studies have spotted a connection between nutrition, metabolism, and circadian rhythms in the human body, this new research pins

Perhaps one of the most intriguing and interesting phenomena in quantum physics is what Einstein referred to as a “spooky action at a distance” – also known as quantum entanglement. This quantum effect is behind what makes quantum computers work, as quantum bits (qubits) generally rely on entanglement to process data and information. It’s also the working theory

1. Lungs don’t just facilitate respiration – they also make blood. Mammalian lungs produce more than 10 million platelets (tiny blood cells) per hour, which equates to the majority of platelets circulating the body. 2. It is mathematically possible to build an actual time machine – what’s holding us back is finding materials that can physically
