In the video below, swiss scientists have been able to connect a paralyzed man’s brain with his spinal chord via a Bluetooth device, and he’s able to walk and climb stairs! The device is still fairly big and cumbersome, but it’s definitely a step forward (pardon the pun).
In this short video, Neil degrasse Tyson and Steve-o of Jackass fame explain the science behind 🤭 lighting farts under water. I thought it might make you chuckle.
I’ve been lucky enough to have seen the northern lights 3 times in my life. The first time, I was in Prince Rupert, in northern British Columbia, the second time was just outside of Stockholm Sweden and the last time I was in Hazelton in northern British Columbia again . All three sightings were so amazing ! It’s such a beautiful sight. But I had no idea what I was seeing, REALLY.
So apparently, being a 54 year old podcast host doesn’t mean you can’t learn new tricks 🤔
I’ve been following news about Neuralink for the past couple of years and have been very impressed with what it may be capable of doing for me specifically. The fact that I’m dealing with hemiplegia, which means that my left side is permanently paralyzed because of the massive stroke I had nearly 7 years ago. Most stroke survivors are able to recover relatively quickly from their paralysis while in hospital those people have hemiperesis, which is a temporary problem, temporary meaning more than a month but less than a couple of years. I watched from my hospital bed so many people walking out of the hospital and I really hoped I would follow them but I’m still having to use a power wheelchair, because it’s my entire left side, arm included. So you can imagine why this news is exciting to me.
I don’t want to see your opinions about Elon Musk as a person or a business owner. I realize he’s a controversial guy. I also don’t want your advice regarding the fact that I don’t want to live out the rest of my life this way. It’s my life, not yours. So if you don’t have anything positive to add to the discussion please remain silent.
I’m posting this for others, like me who are also excited by the possibility of being able to use their entire body again or possibly the first time.
I hope that you’re enjoying the videos of Neil degrasse Tyson explanation videos as much as I am.
This is basically a movie review of the netflix blockbuster, Don’t look up. I found what, our personal astrophysicist, Neil degrasse Tyson has to say about the premise interesting and thought that you might too.
