Believing that the impossible is a puzzle waiting to be solved is clearly a human feature.

We are driven to determine if “the truth is there”. If all the pieces are in place, they can be combined to form a bridge for better understanding.

On Thursday, NASA announced that the agency would put together a team to study unidentified flying objects (also known as UFOs).

The team collects evidence and analyzes data from empty unexplained events from a scientific point of view to determine if they are natural or need other explanations. The nine-month study will begin in the fall and the findings will be open to the public.

“I’ve spent most of my career as a cosmologist. I don’t know what makes up 95% of the universe,” said team-leading astrophysicist David Spergel.

Here are some other unusual things we have learned this week to get over you.

The artist's illustration shows a neutron star with a super-strong magnetic field called a magnetar emitting radio waves (red).

Mysterious fast radio bursts have long been intriguing astronomers because they do not understand the cause of bright millisecond-length flashes in space.

Currently, pulsating radio bursts have been detected in galaxies about 3 billion light-years away. This is even stranger than other galaxies.

Objects were constantly emitting weak radio waves during repeated bursts. There is only one other fast radio burst known to do this, and astronomers are wondering if there are multiple of these unexplained phenomena.

It’s lively.

For the first time, scientists have learned how to grow human-like skin with the fingers of a robot.

According to researchers, this advance is one step closer to giving robots the look and feel of living things.

The same cells that function as components of human skin were used in the study. Human-like skin was able to repel water.

Researchers are interested in adding a vasculature that can help the skin maintain itself, grow nails, and even sweat. With a human-like hand, one day the robot may be able to help with an amazing range of tasks.

Fernanda currently lives in the Faustlerena Giant Tortoise Breeding Center on Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos National Park in Ecuador.

Meet Fernanda. She’s doing a lot in the Galapagos Islands, so we won’t blame you for singing the “Fernando” version of ABBA to her in honor of her.

In 2019, only one small female turtle was found on the island of Fernandina in the Galapagos Islands. Her discovery shocked scientists, especially considering the active volcanoes of the island, as they believed the Fernandina turtle was extinct.

New genetic studies have revealed that Fernanda is certainly a native species of her island. This is especially true when compared to the DNA of male turtle specimens collected from the island in 1906.

And Fernanda may not be the last of her kind. Recent evidence suggests that there are more people on the island who look like her, but her future expeditions and the turtles themselves face formidable volcanic challenges.

Ingenuity helicopters are fighting the hazy winter shades of Mars.

Due to the arrival of periodic sandstorms, the NASA team lost contact with Ingenuity for two days in May. Small choppers now face frigid nights without heaters and lack of sunlight to generate less solar power. However, the helicopter team has plans to help Ingenuity survive and continue to fly high on Mars.

Perseverance Rover reportedly adopted Pet Rock in the meantime (and we’re not kidding).

Meanwhile, NASA’s DAVINCI spacecraft faces the opposite situation when it orbits and attempts to land on the hellish surface of Venus in 2031. Capture unprecedented images of planets down huge pressures and scorching temperatures.

This illustration shows that the dreaded Isle of Wight Spinosaurus may have appeared in life.

The newly excavated ancient bones on the Isle of Wight were once one of Europe’s largest predators. Spinosaurus, a two-legged dinosaur with a crocodile face, was larger than a double-decker bus.

Instead, the bones of animals that lived 125 million years ago may have belonged to a newly discovered species. But scientists need more information to make decisions.

Thanks to the many fossils recovered from the island, the Isle of Wight The capital of British dinosaurs. And if you want more dinosaurs, “Jurassic World: Dominion” was Released this week.

– I promise that this is not a Dr. Seuss riddle, even if it sounds like one. A California court has ruled that bees can be legally considered fish under certain circumstances, especially to protect them.
