Ever Wonder How Astronauts Make Their Coffee? Watch This!

Pretty awesome!

If you’re like most people who can’t start the day without coffee, you have several ways to get your caffeine fix. You can make instant coffee or brew your own using a standard coffeemaker or one of those fancy French presses. Or you can just swing by Starbucks and get your coffee on the go.

But what about astronauts? I’m sure being in space doesn’t cure them of their caffeine craving. So how can they create coffee while confined in a zero gravity station where everything just floats around? The answer: vacuum-packed coffee and a straw. Watch and see how they do it.

Doctor Asks Billionaires Like Zuckerberg To Finance World’s First Head Transplant

Liver transplant, heart transplant. kidney transplant even skin transplants... all of these are perfectly acceptable to extend the life of the patient.

Italian scientist and transplant doctor Sergio Canavero is trying to convince billionaires from all over the world, like Mark Zuckerberg for donations so that head transplant can be carried out. One might think, who would be in their right mind to volunteer for such an endeavor? Well 30-year old Russian tech scientist, Valery Spiridonov eagerly volunteered upon hearing the proposition.

What compels Spiridonov to try this unknown and possibly life-costing head transplant procedure? ...

Scientist From California Believes This Could Be ‘Humanity’s Last Century’

According to this scientist, new technology will allow us to evolve down paths we choose, as opposed to the path nature decides.

We’ve all seen those grim post-apocalyptic sci-fi flicks where machines rule but if Doctor Seth Shostak is to be believed, it looks like that may become real in the future.

Actually, Shostak is not alone in his belief. Other scientists also think – and fear – that the 21st century may be ‘humanity’s last’ century. In the years to come, humans may be replaced by ‘genetically engineered super-men’ or cyborgs, as we call them from the movies.

SETI Institute's Dr Seth Shostak believes this could be "humanity's last century."

Watch What Happens If You Pour Molten Aluminum Over Steak. Pretty Cool!

He pours aluminum over steak to see how much molten metal can damage soft tissues.

The art and (science) of cooking have evolved tremendously through time. From stick and stones to metal oven and now by pouring aluminum?

In this video we found, a group of friends poured molten aluminum over a huge, fresh steak. Aside from inventing what may probably be the next sensational cooking method, they said the reason why they decided to do the experiment is to test how and to what extent molten metal can damage the muscle tissue.

The "scientists" used a thermal scanner to detect the temperature of the steak to see if it will cook all the way through. Aside from just pouring the aluminum, they also cooked the steak in a pan of molten metal....
