We already knew about Venus. We had our suspicions about Mars. Now we’re sure.
Patches of water ice appear to be speckled across the surface of a comet, according to a new study using observations from a European space probe.
If the thought of the universe collapsing in on itself wasn't bleak enough, a new theoretical model envisions something even more apocalyptic – every atom being ripped apart.
“For all physicists know, dragons could have come flying out of the singularity,” said Niayesh Afshordi, an astrophysicist at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo, Canada. Big Bang was a mirage from collapsing higher-dimensional star, theorists propose. While the recent Planck results “prove that inflation is correct”, they leave open the question of how inflation happened. A new The study could help to show how inflation was triggered by the motion of the Universe through a higher-dimensional reality.
A team of researchers led by UCLA electrical engineers has demonstrated a new way to harness light particles, or photons, that are connected to each other and act in unison no matter how far apart they are —a phenomenon known as quantum entanglement.
Cat v mouse: it is probably the most famous predator-prey pairing, enshrined in idioms and a well-known cartoon.
When you look at a kangaroo or a wallaby, it’s obvious the animal is well built for bouncing around the outback. What may be less obvious is that its arms are built for fighting—if it’s male, that is. Males of these species have disproportionately long arm bones. And the more brawling a species does, the more exaggerated the difference between the beefy-armed males and their normal-limbed mates.
It’s no longer surprising when a primate other than us uses a tool. But to pick a nose? That’s what a bearded capuchin named Acacia did one day while lounging around in a national park in Brazil (see video, above). Males of these small New World monkeys are famous for wielding sticks to poke under rocks and into cracks to flush out lizards. Yet after a decade of observing this group of 54 monkeys, researchers had almost never seen a female use a tool.

Cheer up, lazy bones, you are not alone, even hard-working ant societies have workers that don't quite pull their weight.
Lurking in some of the world’s deepest caves is the aptly named Hades centipede, just discovered in Croatia.
Spiders are able to travel across water like ships, using their legs as sails and silk as an anchor.
MATSUURA, Nagasaki Prefecture--A shipwreck found here is the second confirmed vessel from a 13th century Mongolian fleet that foundered in a typhoon in a failed attempt to invade Japan.

A 5,000-year-old archaeological site in Afghanistan is under threat of demolition as a Chinese mining company, eager to access the world's largest untapped copper deposits, closes in.
Islamic State jihadis have destroyed a 2,000-year-old statue of a lion outside the museum in the Syrian city of Palmyra, the country’s antiquities director has said.

In April of 2015 I had the opportunity to visit Egypt during which time I viewed the Unfinished Obelisk in Aswan and the two Obelisks at Karnak which are the topic of this paper. I am an architectural technician who for fifty years has been figuring out how to build the Architect’s designs; thus, when looking at the Obelisks, the question arose – how did they construct and erect these amazing structures. I make no claim to be an “expert” but only that I approach everything with an open and enquiring mind, a beginner’s mind open to all possibilities.
About 2000 years ago in what is today western Illinois, a group of Native Americans buried something unusual in a sacred place. In the outer edge of a funeral mound typically reserved for humans, villagers interred a bobcat, just a few months old and wearing a necklace of bear teeth and marine shells. The discovery represents the only known ceremonial burial of an animal in such mounds and the only individual burial of a wild cat in the entire archaeological record, researchers claim in a new study6.
Scientists are one step closer to bringing a woolly mammoth back to life.
