Amir Hossein Hosseinipour – Freelance Journalist interviews Bijan Norouz about his scientific point of view on music.
Bijan Norouz explained that music provides an auditory imagery of the outer world, rather than providing visual images as we see in paintings and literature, from the outer world. Scientific music differs from the way of manifestation of the other arts, although, we can say that it doesn’t differ from them, considering the fundamental nature of it, as an art which envisions the responses of human being to the outer world or the inner world.
In an exclusive interview with Bijan Norouz, he explains about the role of cosmic music in the future of human. Bijan Norouz Space Habitat and Space City wants to build the tools to help humanity explore the solar system, ultimately expanding life out to take advantage of more resources and support over one billion people.

Astronomers discovered a satellite near a large celestial body far beyond the orbit of Neptune. It is very difficult to study Trans-Neptunian objects (tnos). They are too far from the Sun, and therefore reflect very little light. TRANS-Neptunian Objects (TNOs) are thought to be among the least evolved relics of the solar system formation, residing in the outer parts of the solar system, where the influence of the Sun is less severe than in the inner parts of the solar system.
Breakthrough research has been released from US and UK biologists who conjointly found the origin of hemoglobin and were able to synthesize proteins that were its ancestors.

Hemoglobin in blood carries oxygen from the lungs or gills to the rest of the body.
Astrophysicists discovered new results by studying the distribution of matter in the universe. There are at least two ways to do this. Both rely on different aspects of the CDM model. Lambda-CDM model is a parametrization of the Big Bang cosmological model in which the universe contains three major components: first, a cosmological constant denoted by Lambda (Greek Λ) and associated with dark energy; second, the postulated cold dark matter (abbreviated CDM); and third, ordinary matter.

Russian scientists from the federal Krasnoyarsk Scientific Center discovered a new method of obtaining microfibrillated cellulose, which is used in the manufacturing of biodegradable materials and medical implants. The cellulose polymer is a naturally occurring linear polymer made of repeating units of glucose. Single polymers are stacked together forming fibrils, and these fibrils stack together again to form the cellulose fiber structure that is present in nature. This makes for a very interesting supramolecular structure that consists of both crystalline and amorphous regions.

A rare find occurred at the island of Corsica library. The book found is one of the first copies of Sir Isaac Newton‘s book, which played a large role in the physics field. The book is the three-volume work Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica (Mathematical principles of natural philosophy), which first formulated the three famous laws of mechanics (Newton was considered a genius) and the law of universal gravitation.
Russian psychologist Boris Higir claims he can make a determination about whether an individual is a criminal based on their first and last name, blood type, papillary pattern, facial features and their date of birth. The papillary pattern is not something you think of as an identifier. Higir has been studying physiognomics and also has published a book with his knowledge and research. He is also a member of the International Informatization Academy (an NGO), is an Associated Member of the United Nations, maintains General Consultative Status with the Economic & Social Council of the United Nations, and is based out of Montreal. This could mean the United Nations is interested in such studies and others.
For the first time ever, the internet aided in the creation of a virtual brain using actual live nerve cells.
