Study Finds Emotions Can Be Mapped to the Body by Shannon Firth, usnews: "Our data show bodily sensations associated with different emotions are so specific that, in fact, they could at least in theory contribute significantly to the conscious feeling of the corresponding emotion." Dr. Antonio Damasio, an expert in consciousness, said the study provided compelling evidence to support claims "that the content of emotion is largely based on the perception of body states." #Science #Mind_Body

The Super-Kamiokande detector in Japan, an underground tank that holds 50 million liters of water, captures neutrinos that emanate from a particle accelerator nearly 300 kilometers away. When a neutrino hits the detector, it can produce charged particles, whose high speed through the water emits a flash of light, triggering phototubes mounted in the walls of the Super-K tank. The experiment investigates muon neutrinos transforming into electron neutrinos.

Aerogel Cube & JPL Scientist Peter Tsou by NASA/JPL via wikipedia: Nicknamed 'solid smoke', aerogel is a synthetic porous material derived from a gel, in which the liquid component of the gel has been replaced with a gas, resulting in a very low density solid with thermal conductivity. It feels like styrofoam! #Aerogel #NASA_JPL #wikipedia
