Space Based Solar Power To Become A Reality - Scientists have assessed the feasibility of space based solar power for a long time now. Solar power satellites, specifically made for this purpose, can collect the unobstructed sun light and send the power towards Earth using low density microwave. The generated power would be cheaper, and would provide an eco-friendly source of energy for Earth. Although, there has not been any progress regarding this matter for a long time, some movements…

‘Monster Sunspot’ Could Bring Powerful Solar Flares To Earth - NASA scientists spotted a dark hole on the sun’s surface that could send powerful solar flares to earth. This "monster sunspot" is 11 times wider (more than 60,000 miles) than the Earth turned to face our planet. Our star may soon start spouting off some powerful storms.

Researchers Create Brain-implanted Electrical Device That Helps To Restore Paralyzed Limbs - After a long spinal cord injury, patients usually damage their connections between brain and spinal cord circuits, which are sensual for any movement. Thanks to scientists at Northwestern University in Chicago, who have developed a Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) that would create the connections again between brain and spinal cord circuits using only the brain power. In simple word…
