7. New Human Species
Biologists all over the world were intrigued upon hearing the 2015 discovery of a new species of human, Homo Naledi, allowing for an ever clearer picture of our ancient ancestry. The findings were unveiled deep in an underground cave in South Africa and is considered one of the greatest collection of human remains ever unearthed. So far, it is known that this species of human grew to an average height of 5 feet and had a brain no larger than an orange. The way the bones in the South African cave were arranged suggests that these human ancestors ritualistically buried their dead, giving scientists a glimpse into our cultural past.
6. Bionic Lens
While still in the testing stage, the founder of Ocumetics Technology Corp may have stumbled upon a revolutionary technology that could augment the way humans perceive the world. A new bionic contact lens will give wearers an ability to see the world with stronger than 20/20 vision. Some subjects, who have already tried the lens themselves, claim that they not only see better than ever before but have identified a unique spectrum of colors unfamiliar to the unaided eye. Is this perhaps the first step in the direction of a new era of superhumans?
5. Harder Than Diamond
Scientists may have recently discovered a substance harder than diamond, Q-carbon. What gives diamonds their excellent hardness are the chemical bonds that hold them together. The carbon in diamonds is held together by incredibly tight chemical bonds at the microscopic level, giving diamonds their prominent hardness. By the manipulation of carbon atoms, scientists were able to augment their chemical bonds, producing a material that is potentially 60 times harder than diamond. While this substance is still being experimented on, it is a potential prospect for the future of cheap, efficient technologies.
4. First Mammals
Researchers from the University of Edinburgh have discovered an ancient species of mammals that survived the notorious extinction of the dinosaurs over 65 million years ago. The reason this find is so significant is that it gives us a glimpse at how mammals began to rule the world previously dominated by their cold-blooded counterparts. The mammal is thought to have been a plant-eater closely resembling a modern beaver. Once the dinosaurs were eliminated these beaver-like creatures began to flourish, given that they were no longer victims of dinosaur predators. Because these little guys were able to withstand the destruction that wrecked havoc on the dinosaurs, an array of mammals, including our ancestors, were finally able to leave their mark on the world.
3. Whale Gene Mapping
Gene mapping is starting to look less like a theoretical nicety and more like an applied science with this new aquatic discovery. Scientists have finally discovered why Bowhead Whales are able to live to 200 years old by remapping their entire genome. By comparing the genome of Bowhead Whales with the genome of other mammals with a less impressive lifespan, scientists were able to point out marked differences. Bowhead longevity is due to its genes’ effectiveness in repairing gene deterioration, which is the cause of cancer and other ailments known to cut human life short. By further studying this animal’s genes, scientists may finally be able to restore our own faulty genetic system, substantially lengthening our lives.
2. Second Earth
NASA has recently confirmed their discovery of a possible second Earth. Kepler-452b orbits its sun in what scientists call the “Goldilocks Zone,” which is the habitable region in space, not too far or close to the sun, necessary for the possibility of life to flourish. The new planet appears to have a rocky surface as well as liquid water, which is another key ingredient for life to subsist. Although not much is known about if there is life beyond Earth, it makes sense to take notice of planets similar to our own.
1. Animal Re-animation
Scientists have always been intrigued by the prospect of re-animating creatures that have been extinct for many years. While bringing a dinosaur back to life would be kind of cool, bringing a Wooly Mammoth back to life would be just as cool, and that is just what scientists are trying to do. Because Wooly Mammoths and Saber-Toothed Tigers have only been extinct for tens of thousands of years, unlike the millions of years dinosaurs have been extinct, intact DNA samples are much easier to find. Scientists believe it is possible to recreate these extinct beasts by cloning them with DNA and tissue samples, which have been found, over the years, preserved in ice.
3:45 do you know the real reason nasa has to find water ! Because if the don't they have to admit velikovsky is right ( try the thunderbolts project for real science) ! Nasa has wasted years and years and billions and billions of dollars just to keep from admitting the universe is electric and velikovsky is right ( mostly far far closer than nasa )
Monkeys have SIV... humans have HIV. Giving monkeys HIV if actually different is retarded.
Glad the storage device can store any information put on it...retarded statement.
No didn't find water on Mars but evidence where water may have flowed.
This video was made by monkeys...and not smart ones.
oh my lord my,,, your name is bored badger,,, is that correct? Must mean your from state Michigan maybe, Gotta say you sure blew me away with the recent discovery of a plant going orbiting the sun in an area called the habitable zone,,, Maybe you could have said they discovered a planet orbiting a star called ________ and not called it the sun,,,,, when you did that I thought you meant our star, our sun, Sol. Ha ha, ya had me going there boy , I didn't get angry but I bet they did in Scotland when you butchered the name of a very proud and important city with a long history of a learning institute there as well,, Thier was something else but screw it,, Everyone makes mistakes,,, See the problem I see tho is those mistakes was from just not checking before recording the voice over,, You had no idea about these things so you let it slide,,,, Be better than that dude, I know my writing is awful but I'm old and will die soon so how cares, you have a life time, Pay attention to detail and go places!
Nano Machines! Anything bugging you lately? Aids was created by a group of GB scientists and were killed, or died in very weird circumstances shortly after the World was advised of the Aids Epidemic. In the End there will be Pestilence and Famine.
Main stream science and governments have got a lot of tecnology they won’t release to the public ,they are still using chemotherapy for cancer which will kill you medieval cures .they use it because they make money from it,they don’t care about the public
Food for thought, we widely believe our plant earth took millions of years to develop. Providing life then wiped out over and over again through violent catastrophic cycles. What if the plants we're observing and study are in early stages of the birth of earth like habitation. Even other forms of life perhaps. However it also could've been healthy planets whitch became uninhabitable obliterating life.
Number 7 featured the first group of politicians on earth with brains much larger than they now have. Some of the first had brains as large as an orange! Amazing! Now the larger ones are found to be no bigger than a small walnut.
why am i not excited about these discoveries? ah yes because they will fuck us all up, we are already at the limit. nature has been balanced out carefully for millions of years, it's bullshit to think we can improve such complex things, we will only fuck ourselfes up.
The antibodues that can prevent or stop HIV. There will be trials, it will be improved and made into something that can be used a treat it. But it will never make out to the public. Just like the cures for many dieases. The rich have it. But the rest of us nevwr.
Sorry man, but although these discoveries are real and super exciting, the interpretations are far too optimistic. I think it would be fair to say, at least some of these conclusions are exaggerated to the point of being half-truths. This goes beyond hyped and crosses into deception in my view. At minimum this video is heavily biased. For example, while a planet nearby has been found and the observations are tantalizing, we don't yet know anything about the temperature of the surface or what it's atmosphere is made up of. You've got to tell the whole story man. It's full disclosure or bust with me. I don't want to feel like I'm being lead to believe something that isn't quite true.
your right I don't believe it.. hundreds of millions of years ago?? You do not believe what people wrote in a book two thousand years go.. yet believe what someone said in 2015 about what happened hundreds of millions of years ago? So a goofy theory was he there Nope! Repent and believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Nice of mainstream astronomers to blame the discovery of another planet in our system.with a 20odd thousand year orbit out in the kyper belt we won't see it soon.
Discovered pah. People have known of another world for ever. Cosmologists even have said there should be one to explain how all the other wheels turn. Discovered. Confirmed with irrefutable evidence more like.
For #1 this video says "scientists believe it is possible to create these..." So yeah, still no discovery here, no progress, nothing recent, nothing worth #1. And because there is no discover, there is nothing to disbelieve. A more accurate title of the video would have been "15 topics". At least the 15 wasn't a lie. And probably somebody already commented that like 2 years ago between these thousands of comments complaining about yelling. Wonder if anyone will ever read this. I probably should stop typing now.
Why do Modern Humans *assume* they are related to EVERY human-like species found?
Could it be that the *THEORY if Darwin* was repeated so often that people's Subconscious mind - deems it Truth?
*Very much the same as Fox News "Psychology of Advertising applied to News Commentaries" uses to manipulate an audience and further manipulate their beliefs and actions.*
That should be in a Top 10 List of Thought Realities.
Welcome, withing ~3.500 comments that are here you made one of around 3.000 complaining about the yelling/shouting. But I'm (not) sorry, the author doesn't give a f*ck and stopped listening ~2 years ago or never did.
