African elephants make a specific alarm call in response to the danger of humans, according to a new study of wild elephants in Kenya.
It sounds like a scene from a detective novel: The witness sees a body falling from the window, and then hears a loud noise that sounds like the body hitting the ground. But what if the noise actually came before the fall?
Scientists have designed a machine that they say can help women achieve orgasm at the push of a button.
In 71 percent of all songbird species with available data, the female sings, too. This is remarkable because in the wake of Darwin’s theory of evolution, birdsong has generally been seen as a characteristic of male birds, allowing them to compete with other males and attract females. The exciting question now is how females apparently repeatedly lost their song in the course of evolution.
Darwin's idea of natural selection is simple. Good mutations are passed on, because the animals who have them will survive to reproduce. But how do you pass on those good mutations in honeybee colonies, where most bees are sterile workers who never have babies? A group of researchers decided to find out.
In Palaeolithic Europe 40,000 years ago, two different human species; anatomically modern humans and Neanderthals met for the first time. This collision of cultures resulted in our survival, while the Neanderthals vanished forever.
In a new book, a paleoanthropologist incorporates his research with a synthesis of a vast amount of research from other scientists who study primate evolution and behavior. The book explains how apes and humans evolved in relation to one another, and why humans became a bipedal, tool-making, culture-inventing species.
Time-travel in Europe just got a lot less carefree, with the discovery of the hugest known land predator on the continent, with legs as long as the actor John Lithgow, and teeth the size of warbling wrens. It is called Torvosaurus gurneyi.
A tiny grain of crystal barely visible to the naked eye has confirmed that the Earth is a very ancient place indeed.
A crater on Mars appears to be the source of a type of meteorite widely found on Earth, scientists from the University of Oslo in Norway reported Thursday.
200,000-ton asteroids don't usually just disappear into space (okay, maybe sometimes do), but when astronomers at NASA trained the Hubble on this asteroid, they were puzzled to see it was falling apart right before their eyes, the first time they'd ever seen such a sight.
The Winklevoss twins, Cameron and Tyler, who once accused the Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg of stealing their idea, say they have used bitcoins to buy tickets for a trip on one of Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic space flights.

A US couple who unearthed gold coins worth more than $10 million might have to return them as they may have been stolen, a report said.
Researchers have discovered how Native Americans may have survived the last Ice Age after splitting from their Asian relatives 25,000 years ago.
The decline of Bronze-Age civilizations in Egypt, Greece and Mesopotamia has been attributed to a long-term drought that began around 2000 bc. Now palaeoclimatologists propose that a similar fate was followed by the enigmatic Indus Valley Civilization, at about the same time. Based on isotope data from the sediment of an ancient lake, the researchers suggest that the monsoon cycle, which is vital to the livelihood of all of South Asia, essentially stopped there for as long as two centuries.
French scientists bring back to life a giant, still-infectuous virus lying dormant from the Siberian tundra for 30,000 years, raising fears that global warming could unleash other ancient viruses deadly to man.
Scientists have carried out the first controlled medical experiment in 40 years with the hallucinogenic drug LSD which they used as part of a psychotherapy course to treat severe depression in terminally ill cancer patients.
After a class on out-of-body experiences, a psychology graduate student at the University of Ottawa came forward to researchers to say that she could have these voluntarily, usually before sleep. "She appeared surprised that not everyone could experience this," wrote the scientists in a study describing the case, published in February in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.
