Brit Scientist: Memories Can Possibly Be Edited

Do you want to spend the night with a hot actress like Marilyn Monroe? You can, a leading British scientist has suggested – in your mind.

That’s because Professor Tim Bliss, a British neuroscientist who is set to be awarded this year's coveted Brain Prize, has recently suggested that it may soon be possible to add and remove memories just like we save and delete data from a computer.

"I think that memory is one of the essential faculties of mind which we will eventually understand almost completely," he said. "I wouldn’t say that about other faculties of mind such…

Deep in the Peruvian Andes in South America, according to local legends, is a raging river filled with boiling water. Yes, boiling water – so hot that to step into the river would mean instantly being cooked alive.

And the most amazing thing is — such a river did exist, according to a Peruvian scientist, Andres Ruzo.

In a series of media articles and a book entitled “The Boiling River: Adventure and Discovery in the Amazon,” Ruzo, a geothermal scientist, discussed his discovery of the “boiling river” – now called the Mayantucayu River…

Japan taxi drivers reporting ‘phantom fares’

Taxi drivers certainly aren’t exempt from hair-raising experiences with ghosts and other supernatural creatures.

Take, for example, the case of Balete Drive in Quezon City, where a “white lady” has been allegedly terrorizing cab drivers in the area for years.

There are several versions of the story of the “white lady,” the most popular being the version where a young woman “wearing a white flowing dress” would hail a taxi and ask the driver to take her to Balete Drive – and would vanish by the time the taxi reaches the notorious street.

Now, taxi drivers in Japan’s Miyagi prefecture…

Lost Tapes Reveal Apollo Astronauts Heard Unexplained ‘Music’ On Far Side Of The Moon

The crew of an Apollo mission to the moon were so startled when they encountered strange music-like radio transmissions coming through their headsets, they didn't know whether or not to report it to NASA, it's been revealed.

It was 1969, two months before Apollo 11's historic first manned landing on the moon, when Apollo 10 entered lunar orbit, which included traversing the far side of the moon when all spacecraft are out of radio contact with Earth for about an hour and nobody on Earth can see or hear them.

As far as the public knew, everything about the mission…

Black holes can be Earth’s power stations

From hair around their edges to being able to escape them, Stephen Hawking has proposed a series of fascinating - if sometimes complex - theories about black holes.

In his latest theory, he claims that 'mini' black holes, with the same mass of a mountain, would give off X-rays and gamma rays at a rate of about 10 million megawatts.

This would be enough to power the entire world's electricity supply, but we would first need to find a black hole that small and harness its energy without it destroying us.

The comments were made in Professor Hawking's second Reith…
