Space exploration is a small part let’s see if we can do this, and a large part let’s find out what we learn if we do this and that.
LONDON, England, October 16, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) -- UK scientists are experimenting on seven-day old humans to learn how to “edit” DNA before killing them and discarding them.
A team from the Francis Crick Institute is using “excess" living human embryos for their experiments who were frozen for in-vitro fertilization (IVF). They then "edit" the human DNA by taking out a vital gene from "healthy, normal" embryos.

This is not about creating zombies-those so-called living (or walking) dead that are very popular and make a really great theme for TV shows and movies.
Even the Game of Thrones has its version of the living dead with them nasty creatures called White Walkers and Wights.
But then again, that’s only science fiction, isn’t it? Well, maybe not. In fact, this science-fiction plot could soon play out in real life. Read on.
A research project that was conducted by a team of researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in San Diego, California that was titled A Statistical Description of Plant Shoot Architecture and was published in the journal Current Biology, concluded that plants grow very similarly like neurons in the human brain.
If only we were stuck in beta.
If the past 12 months have you feeling like you're stuck in the beta version of some giant, buggy simulation, we're right there with you, what with the World Series, the Super Bowl, the Oscars, and depending on which side of the fence you sit, the US and UK elections.
Several Native American tribes have passed down legends of a race of white giants who were wiped out.
We’ll take a look at a few such legends, including those among the Choctaw and the Comanches of the United States down to the Manta of Peru.
Horatio Bardwell Cushman wrote in his 1899 book “History of the Choctaw, Chickasaw, and Natchez Indians”:
Several times over the years one or more of my subscribers have asked me to explain what good science looks like. Well, it’s much easier to describe BAD science because it’s everywhere, right in front of your face.
Never mind nit-picking over the “p” number or sample sizes. The whole ambience sucks. This is especially true of medical science, where there are massive financial incentives to cut corners, to cheat, to outright lie.
I like the words of Jon Rappoport, investigative journalist extraordinaire…
Horseshoe crab blood is an irreplaceable medical marvel—and so biomedical companies are bleeding 500,000 every year. Can this creature that's been around since the dinosaurs be saved?
Meghan Owings plucks a horseshoe crab out of a tank and bends its helmet-shaped shell in half to reveal a soft white membrane. Owings inserts a needle and draws a bit of blood. "See how blue it is," she says, holding the syringe up to the light. It really is. The liquid shines cerulean in the tube.
UFO hunters claim that an image taken by NASA’s Mars Curiosity Rover shows an ancient tree stump on the surface of the Red Planet.
A video posted to YouTube by Paranormal Crucible highlights the feature on the surface of Mars, speculating that it could be the petrified remains of a Martian tree. “Object is around 3 feet in height, and with numerous discoveries of plant and animal life on mars, it would be logical to assume, that a variety of tree either existed, or still exists on this enigmatic planet,” it explained, in a post accompanying the video.
