Over the years science has continued to amaze, inspire and educate us. There have been a lot of amazing scientific discoveries that have been made in recent years. Most of the time these discoveries are not featured in the newspaper or on the news.
In this article, we are going to be looking at some scientific discoveries that have touched the lives of many today.
One popular children hospital that is run by Dr. Alan Flake and his team built an artificial womb that was used to keep lambs alive for about four weeks. If you don’t look at the device carefully, you will mistake it for a plastic bag. The bag-like device is filled with synthetic amniotic fluid.

Floating wind turbines
Wind turbines are excellent especially when it comes to generating electricity. But the problem with them is that they take a lot of space. Despite this, a lot of countries are investing in wind turbines because it has zero emission. Turbines need a firm ground to operate, but a Norwegian company that is called Statoil have invented a floating turbine. The only drawback of this technology is that it is very expensive. But if its price is reduced, it is going to give us a free and endless power supply
The lost lands of Zealandia
This is the exotic name of the continent that was discovered not too long ago. Most of it is still submerged under the sea. Divers who investigated it were able to come up with some fossil remains. It is located between New Caledonia and New Zealand. In order to learn more about the history of our planet, we have to dig deep and explore places that only a few will dare to go.
The golden-plated star
When the Neutrons of two large stars collided, the materials that were formed was silver, gold, and platinum. That occurrence is likely going to happen again within the next one hundred thousand years. The result of the collision of these celestial bodies gives us insight on how platinum and gold came into our universe.
There are discoveries that have been made in recent years have open the minds of many to new possibilities. In years to come, more mind-blowing discoveries are likely going to be made. The question is will you be there to learn about them?
