Over the last few years, frustrated IT staff have spent their afternoons banging their heads against the desk.
“No, it’s not an actual cloud…” they repeat, time and time again, as they explain to clients about the power of cloud technology.
Just in case you are new to the world of cloud technology, this is a fancy name for storing large amounts of data which is accessible from multiple locations on a specific server. It’s called “the cloud” to most people, but in reality it’s for all intents and purposes a private location on the web that stores all your data.
It’s revolutionized the business world as important information, template documents and shared media can [...]
Usually, when we hear of a specific scientific breakthrough – especially in astronomy – we prepare ourselves for things being quite slow, and taking a while to heat up. With the recent Lisa Pathfinder satellite, though, things moved a whole lot quicker than expected!
The idea of this mission was to test out what kind of hardware would be needed for gravitational waves to be discovered in space.
The satellite was sent up into the sky to be used as a tester for a laser measurement system that could, in the future, be used on observatories. Rather than the usual slow burning approach, though, the satellite started to exceed expected performance parameters on the first day [...]
For longer than many of us have been involved or interested in politics, Hillary Clinton has been on the scene. She’s one of the most divisive figures in US – and probably global – political history.
To some, she’s the symbol of a greater future for the United States; one where they let women run things, where they can finally progress beyond the white, middle-aged dominance that the nation has seen for so long.
Indeed, many of her supporters see her as the true path to fixing the United States – to showing everyone that there is a chance to move beyond the normal hegemony of the system that exists today.
Over the years, the term “Dark Side of the Moon” has been utilized in many different formats. It’s been part of movie sagas, books, music and popular culture. It is a magnificent section of science and astrology, and it even plays a pretty major role in many different conspiracy theories.
From the housing zone to an alien species to a manmade Dark Side of the Moon that contains a hyper-intelligent and superbly advanced variety of the human race, the Dark Side of the Moon has long been something worth discussing.
The problem is, most people don’t really know why it seems to be called this. Today, we’re going to take a brief look at the term itself, what it actually [...]
All over the world, we have access to stories, myths and legends that on the surface would absolutely blow the minds of people if they were true. From the Chupacabra to various other stories involving supernatural beings, human mythology has been filled up over the years with plenty of candidates who would, on any given night we met them, break our minds!
One of the most popular myths and stories over the years, though, has been that of The Mothman.
Now, a man who is part Moth would not be that big a deal, right? After all, moths are puny!
However, it’s the actual story behind what (potentially) makes up the [...]
Look around the Internet enough and you can find it quite easy to come up with crazy videos and mental looking conspiracies from all across the globe. From the David Icke school of thought that we’re run by a trans-dimensional group of aliens to the conspiracies about murders and espionage that are rife in modern society, it’s very easy to look around and find a conspiracy on just about anything.
One of the most common themes, though, comes in the form of leaks from ex-officials, insiders and various other connected individuals. As you might imagine, those inside leaks can cover a wide range of things from military plans to, in this case, alien activity.
As part of [...]
Take a look around your home, and have a quick calculation of all the different products and systems that you make use of. How many appliances do you have in your home? How many of them need some form of electrical power to make them run? You will find that, without the use of electricity, your home would be a whole lot less cluttered.
You’d not be able to read the article, for one!
However, the truth is that the vast majority of the products that we use today are electrical based, with good reason. Electricity is a form of manipulation and powering our appliances and inventions that is controlled and utterly capable of being managed. Whatever you’re views on the way [...]
Every now and then, you hear some unique – and rather challenging – theories about how the world “really” works. From us all being a virtual reality to the world being flat, you can look around and find something that supports just about any world view.
One of the most unique answers we have come across in some time for a theory, though, is known as the Phantom Time Hypothesis and it is, without doubt, one of the strangest but most exciting hypothesis we have heard in some time. It’s about as crazy as you’re likely to get!
In this article we’ll start to take an interest in what the hypothesis is, some of the most convincing evidence around it, and anything else [...]
Look around the web long enough and you shouldn’t have many problems finding the various stories over the years about massive human skeletons being found. There’s more than one, but the most recent discovery – found in Australia at 5.3m tall – is one of the most impressive yet. With many people happy to believe in the story of giant men in the form of various myths and ideas over the years, this is just yet another point to add to the list of credible evidence that there was, at one stage, humans much larger than our current forms walking this Earth.
However, not everything is as it might seem when you read articles about the latest discoveries – especially when you turn to [...]
Last month marked the two year anniversary of the MH370 plane disappearance. Ever since that time, there’s been intense global interest in what actually occurred, especially as stories have come out since the event occurred to offer some kind of explanation.The Disappearance
After making voice contact with Air Traffic Control over the South China Sea shortly before an hour after taking off, the aircraft soon came out of range of the Malaysian radar and was never picked back up again.
After a massive search effort began across the SC Sea and also the Gulf of Thailand – the place of its last surveillance radar sighting – nothing was found.
Early analysis told us [...]
For readers of a certain vintage, the conspiracy theory we’re about to discuss might bring back a nice bout of nostalgia. After all, this was one of the biggest early theories of the 1960s and is, without a doubt, one of the most insane conspiracy theories we’ve ever come across.
One thing we notice quite a lot after the death of a celebrity are theories that they aren’t “really” dead – the idea that they all live on this magical island that nobody else can locate apart from dead celebrities.
From Tupac to Michael Jackson, every famous celebrity and musician seems to spend their time living away from the rest of the world, free from our expressions and love of their [...]
As you might have seen in the news recently, we’ve finally made one of the major breakthroughs that scientific minds and the like have been waiting for; we’ve discovered gravitational waves.
Gravitational waves are one of the most interesting theories in science and have been for some time, creating what many people thought of as the ‘next level’ for scientific discovery and improvement.
However, the discovery of gravitational waves is sending shockwaves through the scientific community as we’ve finally cracked the code! It’s now official – we live in a Universe which is loaded with gravitational waves. The announcement, made at the National Science Foundation [...]
Recently, we wrote an article about the fabled Dark Side of the Moon, what it means, and why China are looking to become the first country on the planet to get to this side of the moon and see it in the flesh.
However, another major factor that has been in the news for some time has been the discovery of “music” coming from the Dark Side of the Moon. Does this mean that when the Chinese arrive, they are likely to come into contact with an alien rock band?
Obviously not – however, the actual ramifications for hearing sound from one side of the moon has been massive from a scientific point of view. The reasons why and the excuses from those who want to disprove [...]
For years, the myth of the Dark Side of the Moon has been building. As one of the most interesting parts of many discussions to do with encountering other species and exploring space, the Dark side of the Moon is a topic of much consideration and discussion – and for good reason.
From being the home of an alien species to the “discovery” of massive items and buildings on the far side of the moon, more than set of theories exists about why it’s such a fabled piece of space history.
In recent times, though, its’ been the subject of far more discussion due to something a bit less outlandish. This is because China announced in early January that they would be showcasing a [...]
Look around long enough, and you can find that plenty of details exist about supposed intervention from other species, species far more advanced than our own. In an uncertain world where we seem to want to appoint ever-increasing lunatics and put them in charge of terrifying weapons of mass destruction, is there more to the idea of alien intervention other than to help people stay a bit more comfortable in their own minds?
Is it nothing more than a mechanism used to help try and avoid the negativity and the fear of potential long-term damage to the planet by ourselves?
Really, it’s hard to tell. From our piece on alien intervention during the Cold War to the [...]
