Fantastic Photos of our Solar System
We've been looking at other planets through telescopes for four centuries. But if you really want to get to know a place, there's no substitute for being there. And in the past decade, more than 20 spacecraft have ventured into the deepest reaches of our solar system.*check out Photo Gallery* picked by Bornbad 4 months ago

 Freaky New Shark with a Sex Organ on its Forehead
Freaky New Shark with a Sex Organ on its Forehead
A new ghostshark species has been identified off the coast of Southern California, and it’s darker and weirder than any shark we know. The purplish black ancient relative of the modern shark comes packed with a suite of odd features that give its taxonomical family the name chimaera, after the mythical beast made from the parts of many animals. picked by equinox 4 months ago

 The Cause of Illnesses and Diseases All in Your Head?
The Cause of Illnesses and Diseases All in Your Head?
The main premise of the New Agers is that our thoughts create our reality—positive or negative. So, by extension, our thoughts make us sick or well. On an elementary level, that seems easy enough to accept. After all, we all know people who are stuck in a quagmire of self-pity, depression, and anger who exhibit physical symptoms that mirror their mental state picked by Bingo 4 months ago

Tokyo Scientists: Living in the city affects tits
Just as humans speak louder in noisy locations, great tits likely avoid low-pitched tones so that their calls will carry further, said the researchers, who will present their findings at an Ornithological Society of Japan's conference that began on Saturday in the Hokkaido Prefecture city of Hakodate. picked by kakana 4 months ago

genetically engineered dandelions ooze rubber
If you pop the head off a dandelion, white sap oozes freely from the wound for about a second.
But if you pop the head off the genetically engineered variety, the sap oozes for minutes, producing five times more latex than from the average dandelion. picked by kakana 4 months ago

 The Deepest Links
The Deepest Links
Most people can see and most textbooks point out the evolutionary similarity between a human arm, a dolphin's fin, and horse's leg. Insect legs, lacking bones are far different. Both type of limbs evolved independently of each other. However scientists are finding there is more homogeneity between the two evolutionary paths and similar seemingly disparate features than we thought. picked by 2manyusernames 4 months ago

 What our Universe does when no one is looking
What our Universe does when no one is looking
Many years ago a teacher asked me, "Hoosker, if a tree fell in the forest, and no one was there, would it make a sound?"
After several minutes of contemplating the question I replied "Yes, but only if you made me aware of it falling. If you hadn't told me about it, then it actually never would have existed, then No."
Turns out, I may have been on to something. picked by hoosker 4 months ago

Monkeys Cured of Color Blindness
Two male squirrel monkeys were given gene therapy and now the normally color blind animals are able to distinguish between shades of red and green in color vision tests. In normal situations, female squirrel monkeys can see a full range of colors, but males cannot see red or green. picked by Bingo 4 months ago

Fossils Are Not Necessary For Crude Oil Generation
Researchers in Stockholm have managed to prove that fossils from animals and plants are not necessary for crude oil and natural gas to be generated. This means, on the one hand, that it will be much easier to find these sources of energy and, on the other hand, that they can be found all over the globe picked by stinkobinko 4 months ago

Thanks to the Hubble Space Telescope we know the universe is 13.7 billion years old. The HST has helped scientists determine the process of how planets are born and detected the first organic molecule on a planet outside our solar system.

Rats as big as cats, fanged frogs and grunting fish - they sound like something from a horror movie.
But, incredibly, there is a 'lost world' on a distant island where these nightmarish creatures really exist.
