Grizzly bears are doing their best to get along with people, but it still isn’t enough. Newly published research concludes that without large wilderness areas to replenish their numbers, grizzlies would disappear from landscapes they share with humans. “The persistence of bears near people, when we see them along highways or...
Sientists have identified several existing compounds that block the replication of the Covid-19-causing SARS-CoV-2 virus within human cells grown in the laboratory, by targeting a key viral enzyme. University of South Florida Health (USF Health) Morsani College of Medicine scientists recently worked with colleagues at the University of Arizona (UA)...
A spectacular image of the Comet C/2020 F3 NEOWISE above Rome, Italy, at dawn with the International Space Station (ISS) crossing the field of view has been published an astronomer. Gianluca Masi, with the Virtual Telescope Project (VTP), captured the scene on July 7 over Janiculum Hill in the Eternal...
Dilophosaurus, a dinosaur made famous by Jurassic Park that lived 183 million years ago, was 'bigger and more powerful' than the movie made it appear, study shows. From movies to museum exhibits, the dinosaur Dilophosaurus is no stranger to pop culture. Many probably remember it best from the movie...
A new analysis of white dwarf stars supports their role as a key source of carbon, an element crucial to all life, in the Milky Way and other galaxies. Findings from a study published today in Nature Astronomy show that the final breaths of these dying stars, called white dwarfs,...
Scientists often study the genomes of individual organisms to try to tease out the relationship between genes and behavior. A new study of Africanized honey bees reveals, however, that the genetic inheritance of individual bees has little influence on their propensity for aggression. Instead, the genomic traits of the...
Dinosaurs and flying pterosaurs may be known for their remarkable size, but a newly described species from Madagascar that lived around 237 million years ago suggests that they originated from extremely small ancestors. The fossil reptile, named Kongonaphon kely, or “tiny bug slayer,” would have stood just 10 centimeters...
The mysterious appearance of pink snow in the Italian Alps has sparked concerns over accelerated melting in the European mountain range. Scientists are investigating the phenomenon, which might be caused by algae usually observed in Greenland, after the discoloured snow appeared on the Presena Glacia, around 30 miles from the...
Researchers say they have the first direct evidence of a “blender effect” in the Gulf Stream, which is one of the main drivers of climate and biological productivity on the east coast of North America and the west coast of Europe. The multi-institutional study led by a University of Maryland...
Researchers at the University of Tsukuba use computer calculations to propose a new way to rearrange the carbon atoms in a diamond to make it even harder, which may be useful in industrial applications that rely on synthetic cutting diamonds. Researchers at the University of Tsukuba used computer calculations to...
