The best description of wormholes in science fiction was the movie Contact, based on a novel by Carl Sagan. While Sagan was writing the novel, he consulted an expert in General Relativity, Kip Thorne, at Caltech, to make sure that the way wormholes were treated in Contact was actually as close to being scientifically correct as possible. Ellie, played by Jodie Foster, travels through a series of wormholes to a place near the center of the Milky Way galaxy, where the crew meets the senders of a message to Earth guised as persons significant in the lives of the travelers.
Now, new studies from French and German physicists suggest that some unexplained objects in the universe might actually be "wormholes" -portals to other universes.

Last week we posted about cell phones being a possible cause for rapid bee colony deaths (see link below). Some scientists are also concerned about what risks Wi-Fi may pose for humans. More research is needed to determine what health risks Wi-Fi could pose.

US scientists have made an astounding new discovery which will surely make many dreams come true. A new " exercise pill" has been developed which will cause the body to burn at least 2X as much fat as normal by switching on a particular gene, without an physical effort.
Researchers who have tested it in mice say that it prevents the mice from putting on weight, even if they consume high amounts of fat. This pill is much different than existing drugs for obesity, which only work by reducing appetite or by attempting to prevent the absorption of fat. The drug causes the body to burn fat as if it were exercising, even when inactive. This causes more calories to be burned than consumed, which leads to weight loss.
