Was there any doubt that politics plays a big part in scientific conversation? No, not really, not since the Great Warming Debate. The worry approaches when doubt is cast upon scientific consensus. Science is normally and consistently neutral, for the most part, so the worry arises when science, as evidence-based is the main driver of public policy, and we all know who makes the policy decisions.
Deeper than the policy makers becoming influenced by lobbiests, modern swarm-minded ideas, fakenews, and such is the single thought of the power of one person added to another to another, to form a group with new consensus and a new direction. This is easily achieved. People are easily swayed by misstated facts, inflammatory dialogue and our modern social media fakenews and bully-mentality, thus allowing the present science, now a political frontier and expanding to be well within reach and possibly to sway in an entirely detrimental direction.

THE NEWLY DISCOVERED TOUGHEST AND MOST PRACTICAL MATERIAL
By: Rockwell Valentine
Have you ever wondered what the toughest and most practical material on Earth is? To answer your question the answer is, diamond. Recently scientists from the University of Cambridge have been trying to find an alternative material to diamond. The reason they are trying to discover this is because diamond is not very practical, although it is very useful when it comes to cutting material or being used as a tool, it is surprisingly very unstable. When this substance is heated above 800 degrees Celsius its chemical properties in air shift, and it begins to react with iron. You would certainly not want this to happen when constructing steel.
CAN THE HUMAN CODE BE CRACKED, HACKED AND MANIPULATED
By: Alexander Stone
Not only is our metacapital economy affecting our global economy, it is also affecting our scientific economy, efforts and direction. Amidst the direction of earth or man, the longevity of man, the quest for the elixir of life, the fountain of youth has long been sought, and now the question is, is it an elixir or have we had the power within our closed, human system all along. Moreover, can the human code be cracked, hacked and manipulated.
“When most people talk about water on Mars, they’re usually talking about ancient water or frozen water…Now we know there is more to the story…” (NASA). Ojha, one of the main scientist working on the project said. With the research of the NASA team, they have now proven that liquid water flows on the surface of Mars.
“Using an imaging spectrometer on MRO, researchers detected signatures of hydrated minerals on slopes where mysterious streaks are seen on the Red Planet.” (NASA).
A study from the University of California, San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering shows how nanoparticles can be an effective delivery system for drugs in the treatment of cardiovascular disease and systemic bacterial infections.
In the study, engineers disguised nanoparticles as human platelets to see if they could increase the healing power of drug treatments by delivering those drugs to targeted areas in the body or organs affected by dangerous bacteria.
