Scientists from the Gdańsk University of Technology and Lotos will jointly develop eco-asphalt for Polish roads

In September, we wrote about the latest research from Yale University, which clearly suggests that asphalt is a huge source of hazardous emissions, and that as much as 122.5 million tons of it is used annually worldwide, the problem is serious. What's more, according to scientists, we are somewhat deceived here by the construction industry, which ensures that it is a safe solution, because in fact our roads, sidewalks and roofs constantly - and long after laying - emit "a complex mixture of organic ingredients containing dangerous impurities" and the situation worsens threefold on hot days.

There is no evidence that SARS-CoV-2 mutations alter the characteristics of CoVID-19

There is no evidence that SARS-CoV-2 mutations alter the characteristics of CoVID-19

The analyzes were carried out by a team of researchers from University College London, which was based on more than 10,000 mutations of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. As it turns out, unlike what we have heard in the media, there is no evidence that some varieties are more lethal and others have a large higher transmission rate. Of course, the virus, like all the others, is constantly mutating, but at the moment these changes have no effect on the issues of interest to us. And although SARS-CoV-2 is a new virus for us, it can be safely said that at the moment it is difficult to identify another one so scrupulously and on a mass scale studied.

Microorganisms Discovered on Atacama! Similar could / may exist on Mars

Microorganisms Discovered on Atacama! Similar could / may exist on Mars

Scientists at Cornell University found a wide variety of microorganisms just tens of centimeters below the surface in Atacama's moist clay soil. Researchers are sure that this was how life flourished on Mars billions of years ago. Due to the extreme surface conditions that followed, the microorganisms hid beneath the surface where they protected themselves from radiation and low temperatures.

A Virgin manned test flight to the edge of space will take place in November

If it goes along with Richard Branson and his team of skilled engineers, and all the signs in heaven and earth prove it, we can expect space tourism for ordinary people to finally become a reality at Christmas or after New Year. Virgin Galactic announced that the test flight is scheduled to take place between November 19 and 23.

Apophis, the asteroid of doom is accelerating. The risk of collision with the Earth is increasing

Apophis is the name of the demon of darkness and chaos in ancient Egyptian mythology. This term is a perfect fit for an asteroid that is expected to hit our planet on Friday the 13th and end or change the future of our civilization. As more information was obtained about it, the vision of Earth's destruction began to recede, so it became quiet about it. Now, however, the topic returns as the latest data indicate that the risk of an impact has started to increase strongly.

The Rosetta probe captured the cosmic "snowfall" on comet 67P

A few years ago, the European Space Agency published raw images of comet 67p / Churyumov-Gerasimenko, the best-studied object of its type to date, taken at close range by an instrument called OSIRIS aboard the spacecraft.

Lightning strikes on Jupiter can look so amazing

Lightning strikes on Jupiter can look so amazing

NASA's Juno probe has been studying Jupiter's dense atmosphere for 4 years. Thanks to her, we learned that it is an incredibly dynamically changing place. In addition to the constantly raging powerful cyclones there, gigantic lightning strikes are also created there.

Hackers promise to reveal the truth about the origins of the coronavirus on a Trump campaign page

Hackers promise to reveal the truth about the origins of the coronavirus on a Trump campaign page

Interestingly, this time hackers are not demanding cryptocurrency from the Donald Trump administration, but are encouraging citizens to donate if they want to know the truth. A message appeared on the president's campaign website that they had access to secret conversations and top secret information, proving that the government of the current president is involved in the outbreak of the coronavirus. The website also featured a special FBI-style message, \"This page has been seized\", in which you can also read that the perpetrators, as a result of access to many devices, obtained information compromising the president and his relatives.
