Scientists have found the oldest DNA evidence yet of humans’ biological history. But instead of neatly clarifying human evolution, the finding is adding new mysteries.
An analysis of the femur of one of the oldest human ancestors reveals the six-million-year-old "Millenium Man" was bipedal but lived in the trees. The research, led by Stony Brook University researchers and their team of international paleoanthropologists, could provide additional insight to the origins of human bipedalism and is published in Nature Communications.
Would you eat cheese made with bacteria from a belly button?
Multiple tombs lay hidden in Egypt's Valley of the Kings, where royalty were buried more than 3,000 years ago, awaiting discovery, say researchers working on the most extensive exploration of the area in nearly a century.
The home of Egypt's mummies and King Tutankhamun's treasures is trying to make the best out of the worst times of political turmoil. But the Egyptian Museum is taking a hammering on multiple levels, from riots on its doorstep to funding so meager it can't keep up paper clip supplies for its staff.
Scientists have discovered that some ring-tailed lemurs in Madagascar regularly retire to limestone chambers for their nightly snoozes, the first evidence of the consistent, daily use of the same caves and crevices for sleeping among the world's wild primates.
Now that physicists have found the Higgs boson, what's next? One of the most successful theories in science, the Standard Model of particle physics, seems to be complete. But what lies beyond the Standard Model? While we wait for Europe's Large Hadron Collider to start up again, there are plenty of other mysteries to explore — and the nature of dark matter looks like one of the most promising frontiers.
A dense crystalline "rain" falling into Earth's mantle could explain how a mysterious seismic boundary forms beneath the crust, according to a study published Wednesday in the journal Nature.
The model, based on rock evidence from volcanic islands that smashed into Asia and Alaska, confirms long-standing ideas about how continents are born.
NASA's Cassini orbiter has taken many pictures of Saturn's weird hexagonal storm system — but never like this. Newly released views show the Great Hexagon as a full-frontal cloud system, with Cassini's camera looking directly into the polar hurricane.
Professor in Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Astronomic Observatory at the University of Valencia, Martínez explains that the range of cosmic distances achieved is "impressive and, therefore, it allows us to scan the cosmic evolution. In astronomy, looking away is looking at the past. We can get to know how galaxies were in early stages of the universe history."
Ever wondered just where humans fall on the food chain? Wonder no more. Researchers have calculated our precise location (somewhere right next a pig or an anchovy, apparently), along with another surprising trend: While we're firmly omnivores, we're also becoming more and more carnivorous.
It sounds like a factory farm legend. One day, the manure collected under the floorboards of a pig barn starts foaming uncontrollably. Then, the foam releases gas that explodes. In one incident — all too real — over 1,500 pigs were killed, and one human seriously injured. What's going on?.
When meeting someone for the first time, your impression of that person may be different if you meet that person at a formal dinner party, a cocktail party, or a pool party. These settings typically influence how the person dresses and how much skin they expose. Whether you consciously pay attention to a person’s exposed skin or not, focusing on their body may have unintended consequences.
Conjuring up a visual image in the mind -- like a sunny day or a night sky -- has a corresponding effect on the size of our pupils, as if we were actually seeing the image, according to new research.
A new study by researchers at Washington University, UCLA, and Indiana University claims that one can easily identify a person's height just by listening to their voice.
Bees have a much greater economic value than is widely known, according to a scientific probe into strawberry-growing published on Wednesday.
Insects prefer to eat green leaves rather than red ones, research from Victoria University has shown. Ignatius Menzies, who will be awarded a PhD in Ecology and Biodiversity next week, tested a long-standing hypothesis that plants use red foliage as a visual warning to deter approaching insect pests.
Nasa has reported that “faint signatures of water” have been found in the atmospheres of five planets outside our solar system, marking a further development in the search for planets capable of supporting alien life.
