Heliocentrism theory


“It may be boldly asked where can the man be found, possessing the extraordinary gifts of Newton, who could suffer himself to be deluded by such a hocus-pocus, if he had not in the first instance willfully deceived himself; Only those who know the strength of self-deception, and the extent to which it sometimes trenches on dishonesty, are in a condition to explain the conduct…

Newest discovery in Science


Stubby squids, which grow to be about 2-1/2 inches long, are actually rather common in Northern Pacific waters. They spend much of their time feeding on shrimp in relatively shallow waters, averaging about 1, feet below the surface. So researchers were surprised to find a living individual some 2, feet deeper. “Encountering this individual significantly adds to what we know…

Scientific Breakthroughs 2013


Every year, the editors of Science huddle together and pick an outstanding scientific achievement as the Breakthrough of the Year. This year’s winner is CANCER IMMUNOTHERAPY: harnessing the immune system to battle tumors. Scientists have thought for decades that such an approach to cancer therapy should be possible, but it has been incredibly difficult to make it work. Now…

For the first time, scientists have discovered an Earth-size alien planet in the habitable zone of its host star, an Earth cousin that just might have liquid water and the right conditions for life. This artist illustration shows what it might be like to stand on the surface of the planet Kepler-186f, the first-ever Earth-size planet to be found in the habitable zone of its…

Photo by: rgbspace Viewpoint: Yes, early scientists believed that what appeared to be movement around Earth by the Sun and other entities was, in fact, just that. Viewpoint: No, later scientists such as Nicolaus Copernicus and Galileo correctly realized that Earth moves around the Sun, not vice versa, and thus cannot be the center of the universe. It is easy in our human nature…

What was the heliocentric theory?


The heliocentric theory argues that the is the central body of the and perhaps of the universe. Everything else (planets and their satellites, asteroids, , etc.) revolves around it. The first evidence of the theory is found in the writings of ancient Greece. Greek philosopher-scientists deduced by the sixth century B.C. that is round (nearly spherical) from observations that…
