On Hacking MicroSD Cards

Turns out that to correct errors, each SD card comes with a 100mhz microcontroller which reports on the size of the device and runs algorithms to block out certain errors. On at least one brand, the firmware loader is not secured. This opens up a host of possibilities, from a very cheap source of Arduino […]

Algae to crude oil: Million-year natural process takes minutes in the lab

In the PNNL process, a slurry of wet algae is pumped into the front end of a chemical reactor. Once the system is up and running, out comes crude oil in less than an hour, along with water and a byproduct stream of material containing phosphorus that can be recycled to grow more algae.

Simulations back up theory that Universe is a hologram – and it seems that wormholes can be created using entanglement

A team of physicists has provided some of the clearest evidence yet that our Universe could be just one big projection. In 1997, theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena proposed1 that an audacious model of the Universe in which gravity arises from infinitesimally thin, vibrating strings could be reinterpreted in terms of well-established physics. The mathematically intricate […]

evidence of transgenerational epigenetic inheritance: ‘Memories’ pass between generations

Experiments showed that a traumatic event could affect the DNA in sperm and alter the brains and behaviour of subsequent generations. A Nature Neuroscience study shows mice trained to avoid a smell passed their aversion on to their “grandchildren”. The animals were trained to fear a smell similar to cherry blossom. The team at the […]
