Weekly Science Picks

It seems we come to the end of this week before we left the previous one. Time has passed so quickly, has not it? We just turned around ourselves and we are at the end of one more week of such an amazing month of July. Let us see what this fascinating week brought to us. This week’s selections appear as pretty attractive, but what dragged our attention the best is the story about hypnosis or how to get possessed by someone’s else mind. Quite spooky, is not it? Also we like the stories regarding astronomy discoveries, human history findings and much more. Well, let’s begin!
