Latest Articles In Science

The word science is derived from Latin “scientia” meaning knowledge. There are two distinctive definitions of science. The older of the two states that science is a body of knowledge itself, of the type that can be rationally explained and reliably applied.

The contemporary definition is that it is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe. A practitioner of science is known as a scientist.

From the classical antiquity and medieval science providing foundations for scientific method to the present day, science has been linked to a broad specter of branches until it became an all encompassing term with the definition given above.

The ever growing evolution of science in general has produced various branches or fields of expertise. The two major categories are natural and social science. The category of formal science is reserved for mathematics because it has certain elements of both natural and social categories but does not fit in either.

The documentaries and video materials complied in this category are concerned with all scientific matters, from the philosophy of science to the fringe and junk science.

Is it possible that the days of this planet are all but spent? Is the evacuation of the entire planet the only salvation of mankind? The answers to these questions are given in the documentary about the technological advance and the future plans that will enable planet scale evacuation.

The ever lingering question of the possibility of the eternal life is expected to be answered in recent future. To learn how humanity is about to defeat death, we will investigate the plans to grow replacement parts of the body in the laboratory, microscopic robots that could wipe out deadly diseases, and the possibility that aging itself may be reversed by taking a page from one of history’s darkest legends. A number of scientists, doctors, geneticists and nanotech experts-many with impeccable academic credentials insist that such a thing is possible. Find out what scientific methods and breakthroughs are behind this incredible claim. Will the gift of eternal life be finally given to mankind?
