Hum the first two notes of “The Simpsons” theme song. (If you’re not a Simpsons fan, “Maria” from West Side Story will also do.) The musical interval you’re hearing—the pitch gap between the notes—is known as a “tritone,” and it’s commonly recognized in music theory as one of the most dissonant intervals, so much so that composers and theorists in the 18th century dubbed it diabolus in musica (“devil in music”).
As nearby and familiar as it might seem these days, with rovers on its surface and spacecraft in orbit around it (and even more en route) Mars is very much an alien planet. Its landscapes may resemble parts of Earth but they’re much colder and drier, the sun may rise and set in its sky but its light is dimmer… and even the dust in its atmosphere is a bit unexpected, as recently discovered by an international team of researchers.
The rise of oxygen is one of the biggest puzzle in Earth's history. Our planet's atmosphere started out oxygen-free. Then, around 3.5 billion years ago, tiny microbes called cyanobacteria (or blue-green algae) learned out to carry out photosynthesis. They began using energy from sunlight to make their food from carbon dioxide and water, giving off oxygen as waste.

BORTH, WALES — There is a poem children in Wales learn about the sunken kingdom of Cantre’r Gwaelod, swallowed by the sea and drowned forever after. On a quiet night, legend has it, one can hear the kingdom’s church bells ringing.
ST LOUIS, MISSOURI—Excavations at the Sanyangzhuang site and the Anshang site along China’s lower Yellow River flood plain, and analysis of sedimentary soils deposited along the Yellow River over thousands of years, indicate that people were changing the environment nearly 3,000 years ago.
The bones of ground sloths, saber-toothed cats and other creatures of the Ice Age have been discovered in a deep underwater cavern on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, but the exploration of the site is actually happening on the surface, hundreds of miles away, in a lab in San Diego.
