Cloning Woolly Mammoths: Nothing Could Possibly Go Wrong

Cloning Woolly Mammoths: Nothing Could Possibly Go Wrong
Scientists have announced that they are close to cloning woolly mammoths. This could take place in as little as 4 years. While we won’t exactly get Jurassic Park, we may have a real-world Ice Age Park.

Carbon Nanotubes Makes Aerogel Even Lighter Than it Already Was

Carbon Nanotubes Makes Aerogel Even Lighter Than it Already Was
Aerogel is a man-made material that was invented a while back. It’s one of those products that is really cool, but hasn’t made its way into anything too interesting that I have seen yet. Aerogel is the world’s lightest solid though, and scientists have used our friends the carbon nanotube to make this stuff even lighter.

Steins of Science: Science I Can Get Behind

Steins of Science: Science I Can Get Behind
I think it’s really cool when you make stuff out of other stuff and the stuff you make out of that other stuff actually serve a purpose and stuff. Know what I mean? Such is the case with Steins of Science.

The God Helmet: Magnetic Field’s a Hell of a Drug

The God Helmet: Magnetic Field’s a Hell of a Drug
One of the most important questions known to man is one that is perhaps best not conclusively answered – the question of whether or not God exists. I’m sure the debate will continue and intensify as scientists gain more and more knowledge about the world, but what would be the effect of the definite answer to that question?

Researchers Develop Printer That Prints Skin

Researchers Develop Printer That Prints Skin
I once knew a guy that had been in a fire that burned his hands and arms badly. He had to get skin grafts that left him with scars elsewhere on the body to replace the skin that burned on his arms.

This Magnet That Will Make You a Lefty. Say What?

This Magnet That Will Make You a Lefty. Say What?
Apparently this magnet can make you left-handed, if you’re right-handed. Sounds kind of crazy, but it makes sense how this could help people who have either lost some function in their right arm. According to a study by researchers at UC Berkeley, when the proper trans-cranial magnetic stimulation is applied to the brain of a righty, you get a lefty.

Caveman Cola: Brew Your Own Soda Pop

Caveman Cola: Brew Your Own Soda Pop
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I think the whole DIY movement has gone a bit to far. Take, for instance, this kit which lets you make your own cola (presumably, just like the cavemen had to do.) The Caveman Cola kit includes the key ingredients for making your own competitor to Coca-Cola and Pepsi (that’s more than likely going to taste worse than warm RC.)

Killing Mosquitoes With Laser Beams

Killing Mosquitoes With Laser Beams
Talk about overkill. This new technology can track down individual mosquitoes and take them out using a laser beam. That’s definitely one way to kill bugs dead. Created by Intellectual Ventures Lab, the Photonic Fence Anti-Mosquito Laser System can hunt down and identify the little buggers with amazing precision.

Imicroscope Lets Your iPhone Take Perfect Pics of the Miniature World Around Us

Imicroscope Lets Your iPhone Take Perfect Pics of the Miniature World Around Us
While I knew for a while that you could use the iPhone’s camera to take really close up pictures of stuff, this is the first time I’ve seen an app that’s designed to help you take high quality scientific images with your iPhone’s camera. iMicroscope is a new app that helps you take precision pics of microscopic stuff.

Sugru: Mod Your World

Sugru: Mod Your World
Sugru might look like normal everyday clay but actually it’s a silicone polymer that cures at room temperature. Why is it so special? Well it can be molded in to any shape and stuck on to metal, ceramic, wood, leather and plastic!

Lab Chops: Scientists Create Artificial Pork

Lab Chops: Scientists Create Artificial Pork
Scientists in the Netherlands managed to create artificial meat using muscle cells extracted from a live pig combined with “a broth of other animal products”, which allowed the muscle cells to multiply and form muscle tissue.

It’S Science! Chemistry Magnets for the Kitchen

It’S Science! Chemistry Magnets for the Kitchen
If you’re curious about what’s really kicking in your holiday food this season, these chemical magnets will shed a little light on the science behind the flavor (and decorate your fridge). Love garlic? Thank the allicin–and celebrate it by plastering it to a metal surface. You can feed people and educate them at the same time.

Wire Recorder Lets You Record Your Voice on Random Metal Surfaces

Wire Recorder Lets You Record Your Voice on Random Metal Surfaces
Building on some of the same basic principles that eventually gave way to the cassette recorder, this kit lets you transcribe the sound of your voice into magnetic charges and play them back with a swipe of your hand.

Big Science at Neatorama: Expensive, Complicated & Awesome

Big Science at Neatorama: Expensive, Complicated & Awesome
The latest Neatorama exclusive talks about large-scale experiments and research and the massive and complex equipment that they require. I’m pretty sure that you’ve already heard of most of them, like the Hubble Telescope, the International Space Station, or the US and USSR’s space race, that culminated in the Apollo 11 moon landing.

Weird Insect Eggs Don’t Need No Special Effects

Weird Insect Eggs Don’t Need No Special Effects
They say that truth is stranger than fiction. I say that when it comes to eggs, fictional eggs are overall much much freakier.  I mean, are there any real eggs that spawn facehuggers? But as these pictures will show you, real eggs can be really weird too.

The Real Alien Ant Farm

The Real Alien Ant Farm
Remember playing with ant farms when you were a kid? You know, the type where you’d get sand all over the place and proceed to kill all of your insect friends within a matter of minutes as you tried to fill it up?
