A Stable Plasma Ring Has Been Created In Open Air For the First Time Ever  

New submitter mrcoder83 shares a report from Futurism: Engineers from the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have been able to create a stable plasma ring without a container. According to the Caltech press release, it's "essentially capturing lightning in a bottle, but without the bottle." This remarkable feat was achieved using only a stream of water and a crystal plate, made from either quartz and lithium niobate. The union of these tools induced a type of contact electrification kn

Science just proved that owning a dog makes you live longer  

Dogs are great, and caring for a canine often comes with plenty of benefits. They make us laugh, keep us from being bored, and are often quite skilled at the art of snuggling, but new research just proved that owning a dog actually reduces your chances of dying by a significant margin. Past studies have suggested that dog (and cat) owners are happier overall, and some of the data has pointed to longer life, but none of the research was even close to definitive. This new project is absolutely ma

Scandinavian-inspired teardrop trailer blurs the lines between indoors and out   

Teardrop trailers are a nice compromise for those that want to spend a lot of time outdoors but prefer a little extra nighttime comfort while there. Simple, spartan interiors keep you motivated to get outside and stay there the whole day and tailgate galleys force you to cook under the sky. But at night, you enjoy the softness of a mattress and the security of four walls - no leaking or flapping tent fabric or poking rocks and twigs to deal with. Canadian start-up Droplet further enh

The House's Tax Bill Levies a Tax On Graduate Student Tuition Waivers  

Camel Pilot writes: The new GOP tax plan -- which just passed the House -- will tax tuition waivers as income. Graduate students working as research assistants on meager stipends would have to declare tuition waivers as income on the order of $80,000 income. This will force many graduate students of modest means to quit their career paths and walk away from their research. These are the next generation of scientists, engineers, inventors, educators, medical miracle workers and market makers. As

Astronomers spot lava-covered “Super Earth” that might somehow have an atmosphere  

Exoplanets — that is, planets we know exist outside of our own Solar System — come in all shapes, sizes, and personalities. Some are super frigid, while others are boiling hot, and a few fall somewhere in between. A newly-discovered world called "55 Cancri e" is not the kind of place you'd want to hang out, as it's covered in free-flowing lava on one side and a charred husk on the other, but it might actually be a lot more like Earth than you'd imagine.

The Razer Phone has no 3.5mm headphone jack, meaning you'll have to use the phone's included USB-C-to-3.5mm adapter to listen to music or get some USB-C headphones. If the "new headphones" option sounds more enticing than the "dongle" one, then Razer's got something just for you. Razer now sells Hammerhead USB-C earbuds on its website.

'Skyrim VR' makes the 6-year-old game feel fresh again  

Skyrim has become something of a meme in recent years. Since being heralded as one of the best action RPGs of all time when it launched, it has been remastered and re-released repeatedly on the Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One, PS4, PC and even on the Switch. And now, in what might be its final restoration (until Bethesda finds a way to cram the game on to mobile devices), Skyrim has been adapted for virtual reality in the appropriately named Skyrim VR.
