It is currently widely accepted that both space and time started with the Big Bang. The universe started as a small singularity that was infinitely dense and has continuously expanded since. This can be evidenced by an observed pattern called redshift (a result of the wavelength of electro-magnetic radiation increasing). However, gravity in simple terms…

Real life Waters of Mars?

It may sound like an episode of Doctor Who, but scientists believe that they may have found an underground lake on Mars.   Blurry radar scans of the planet reveal what is believed to be a frozen, salty reservoir some 12- miles across and lying around one mile beneath the surface of the planet’s South…
