How Earthquakes Might Trigger Faraway Volcanoes

There are several schools of thought about the relationship between earthquakes and volcanoes. Scientists have long thought that there is a connection between the occurrence of high magnitude earthquakes and distant volcanic eruptions. Using scientific notebook charting and recording of various events, these teams are coming closer and closer to determining the relation and likelihood […]

Scientists Search for 13 People to Help Solve Genetic Mutation Mystery

For all of the claims that 13 is an unlucky number, that doesn’t always appear to be the case. It’s been used to introduce horror movies and create panic in those who are superstitious, but today, it’s in more than one laboratory research notebook belonging to a number of scientists who study genetics. That’s because […]

The Science Behind the Earth’s Airglow

If you were to look in almost any laboratory research notebook that was used in the first year of a NASA employee’s term of employment, you might read terms like “airglow” and “Rayleigh scattering.” That’s because, like the average citizen, even new NASA employees aren’t always aware that airglow even exists, much less knows about […]

5 Science Podcasts You Should Be Listening To

Whether you are looking for new and interesting projects to jot down in your lab notebook or you just have to feed your need for endless scientific tidbits, podcasts are a great way to go. They are entertaining and educational all at once. Technology has given savvy scientists an engaging new format by which to […]

Science Beginning to Link Climate Change with Extreme Weather

If bad weather seems more extreme than you remember, you might not be wrong. Droughts are becoming more extreme, and hurricanes more damaging, but many have long denied its cause: climate change. The argument is over, though, because science can now link climate change to extreme weather. Take out your research notebook and take notes […]

Largest Rocky Planet Discovered

While one scientist might fill his laboratory research notebook with new inventions or chemical equations, others fill theirs with the dimensions of new planets. Such is the case with one astrophysicist and his team that discovered a new exoplanet with the help of the Kepler space telescope. What Is an Exoplanet? An exoplanet is a […]

Hubo – The Disaster Relief Robot

Robotics is a field that has benefitted tremendously from advances in technology. Leonardo Da Vinci may have been the original trailblazer in robotics and engineering. His engineering notebook has been a coveted piece of scientific history as well as a resource. The once clumsy robotic arm has now given rise to robots that can perform […]
