The fact that this informative post has just two pages of comments shows the problem we have in this country.
It is finished.

i hope soon we can travel at d speed of light to explore other galaxies
the faster we go, the heavier we get which means more mass this means more energy is needed to move more mass which means an increase in speed leads to more mass this is why it's impossible for objects with mass to be light speed exceot photons themselves

sunnyeinstein:


Can our bodies survive effects of the speed of light? Not for now, I think

Our body system would definitely not be able to withstand the effect of travelling at the speed of light but a suit could be invented to make it possible with little or no effects to the human body


Just like how the spacesuit was invented to make us adapt to harsh environments of the outer space in order to travel there, so it's possible.

Awesome article! Educating and refreshing!! These are the kind if articles that are supposed to be on front page!!! I don't know but I believe very soon, Nigerians will begin to make scientific discoveries.... We are super smart just our society pollutes our mind but our future is in our hands! Its left for us to focus our mind power and energy on positive things....only then can we dig into our subconscious.... Every man/woman, black or white has a drop of greatness! Dig deeper and you shall discover!!!!

#4: The holy grail of paleontology
In September of 2018 a group of Australian scientists managed to finally identify a fossil that's been stumping experts since its discovery in 1947.

Found near the White Sea in Russia, this 5.1 centimeter-long oval-shaped fossil with symmetrical ribs was given the name Dickinsonia.

The creature died in a place that, back then, was a great ocean, meaning it was more than likely an aquatic creature, or at least able to survive in ancient waters. "Dick"insonia went unclassified for over seven decades but has finally been proven to be an animal. It's considered to be the holy grail of paleontology, as Dickinsonia is actually an animal that lived 558 million years ago. This makes it the oldest animal ever discovered and likely one of the first complex living things to exist on Earth.

I know these names are often given based on Latin, but come on, "Dick"insonia? Okay, we gotta name this thing. A lot of people are gonna be saying its name. Dick insonia. grin That's gonna be funny. grin

I didn't touch her. I just found my " dick" in Sonia.

Technology is advancing daily. Most of the time, it’s iterative: An interesting improvement on a system that came before. But occasionally, new branches of tech develop, offering completely new approaches to solving old problems.We asked members of Forbes Technology Council for their ideas on what they expect will be the next big thing in tech. Here is what they have their eyes on — and 
1. Blockchain
Blockchain is disruptive in the same way quantum computing will be. You can’t ignore the beauty of decentralization and this new way of exchanging information without involving a middleman. Blockchain is not cryptocurrency, and it can fit into enterprises as a part of their enterprise solutions. – Neeraj Sabharwal, Xavient Digital
2. The Internet of Things (IoT)
The next breakthrough will involve the combination of the Internet of Things with other leading technologies like AI and blockchain. Together, these technologies will create transformational value, first in the industrial sector, and then in the consumer market. The results will include improved business decision-making and a better quality of life at work and home. 
3. Healthcare
Advances in healthcare are desperately needed and are being tackled, whether it be through predictive analysis using genomic data, which can permit the prediction of disease and other people’s characteristics, or through novel drug therapeutics such as RNA targeting. The healthcare industry has long been in need of reform and know that tech giants and other companies are entering the sphere to tackle this problem. Gene modification poses the promise to be the next quantum leap in public health protection and that is just the beginning. – Alexandro Pando, Xyrupt
4. Generative Adversarial Networks
Generative adversarial networks are next. This is a way of pitting two neural networks against each other in order to train one of them to produce new things. For example, it may generate realistic-looking pictures. We’re not quite there yet but we will be soon. When that happens, it could conceivably become impossible to separate real information from false. For better or worse, that will be a very big thing. 
5. Human and Artificial Neural Networks
The next thing would be a new way to communicate with these new technologies including AI. It could be some new kind of wearable. It might be some mechanism to fit a receiver inside a body, similar to how pets are microchipped. Basically, something to seamlessly connect humans with the immense power of AI. We already have made some advances in AI. Now we need to make it more utilized.
6. Incremental Improvements
Breakthroughs continue to happen each and every day in the technology world. Recently, Fast Field Programmable Gate Arrays were added to Intel processors which will accelerate extreme real-time IO and machine learning. It is not the massive breakthroughs, but these incremental improvements that lower costs, improve efficiency and drive better customer outcomes. – Danny Allan, Veeam Software
7. Quantum Batteries
The ability to store and retrieve orders of magnitude more portable energy will change the world. Today’s battery technologies have lagged woefully behind other technology advances. When we break through with dense battery technology, such as applying quantum physics and other methods to get beyond simple chemical-based batteries, it will rock our world and solar power will eclipse fossil fuels.
