A Cretaceous-age, crow-sized bird from Madagascar would have sliced its way through the air wielding a large, blade-like beak and offers important new insights on the evolution of face and beak shape in the Mesozoic forerunners of modern birds. An international team of researchers led by Ohio University professor...
A group of Israeli scientists appear to have stumbled upon something akin to the Holy Grail, finding a way to take the human body “backwards in time", not only slowing ageing but literally reversing its effects. The shortening of telomeres, the caps at the end of each of our chromosomes,...
SpaceX successfully launched the NASA and ESA satellite known as Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich. The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite, a collaboration between NASA and the European Space Agency, lifted off at 12:17 p.m. ET from Space Launch Complex 4 East at California's Vandenberg Air Force Base. It was carried to the...
An international team of researchers has defied nature to make diamonds in minutes in a laboratory at room temperature - a process that normally requires billions of years, huge amounts of pressure and super-hot temperatures. The team, led by The Australian National University (ANU) and RMIT University, made two types...
The observatory became famous in more than just scientific circles after appearing in such movies like “GoldenEye”, “Contact” and the “X-Files” TV series. Its building was completed in 1963, and for more than 50 years it has been considered the world’s largest single-aperture radio telescope. The iconic Arecibo radio telescope...
An astrophysicist at the University of Bologna and a neurosurgeon at the University of Verona compared the network of neuronal cells in the human brain with the cosmic network of galaxies... and surprising similarities emerged In their paper published in Frontiers in Physics, Franco Vazza (astrophysicist at the University of...
A new research of non-avian dinosaur diversity shows they were not in decline and were still capable of generating new species at the time of their extinction by the Chicxulub asteroid hit 66 million years ago (Cretaceous period). A new research from scientists at the University of Bath and Natural...
The private water utility provider at Canadian Lakeview Estates says a potable water truck is on site while a broken water main is dealt with. "Upon investigation, our crews discovered the break was at depth, and would require heavier equipment than was readily available. It would also require more thorough...
A 67-million-year-old fossil pair known as "Dueling Dinosaurs" consists of a remarkably preserved T. rex alongside the bones of an equally intact Triceratops. For years, the skeletons languished in labs and warehouses as ranchers and paleontologists fought a legal battle over their ownership. On Tuesday, that fight ended: The North...
Researchers have known for some time that galaxies can grow by the merging of smaller galaxies, but the ancestry of our own Milky Way galaxy has been a long-standing mystery. Now, an international team of astrophysicists has succeeded in reconstructing the first complete family tree of our home galaxy...
