Did mosasaurs hunt like killer whales?



Posted: 12 Oct 2018 12:26 PM PDT


Researchers have examined the youngest-ever specimen of tylosaur ever found. Like orcas, mosasaurs might have used their bony noses to strike prey.


Researchers quickly harvest 2-D materials, bringing them closer to commercialization



Posted: 12 Oct 2018 10:53 AM PDT


Researchers have developed a technique to harvest 2-inch diameter wafers of 2-D material within just a few minutes. They can then be stacked together to form an electronic device within an hour.


World's fastest camera freezes time at 10 trillion frames per second



Posted: 12 Oct 2018 06:30 AM PDT


Researchers have developed what they call T-CUP: the world's fastest camera, capable of capturing ten trillion frames per second. This new camera literally makes it possible to freeze time to see phenomena -- and even light! -- in extremely slow motion.


'Vampire burial' reveals efforts to prevent child's return from grave



Posted: 12 Oct 2018 06:30 AM PDT


Archaeologists found the remains of a 10-year-old child with a stone inserted into his or her mouth at a fifth-century Italian cemetery. They think the stone was meant to keep the child from rising from the dead and spreading malaria to the living.


Human brain cell transplant offers insights into neurological conditions



Posted: 11 Oct 2018 11:31 AM PDT


Scientists have created a 'window' into the brain, which enables researchers to watch in incredible detail how human brain cells develop and connect to each other in real time.


Death of a massive star and birth of compact neutron star binary



Posted: 11 Oct 2018 11:31 AM PDT


The unexpectedly gentle death of a massive star suggests that it was being robbed by a dense companion lurking out of sight.


Computational model links family members using genealogical and law-enforcement databases



Posted: 11 Oct 2018 11:31 AM PDT


Researchers are reporting ways in which using genetic ancestry databases to solve crimes could potentially be expanded.


Mouse pups with same-sex parents born in China using stem cells and gene editing



Posted: 11 Oct 2018 11:31 AM PDT


Researchers were able to produce healthy mice with two mothers that went on to have normal offspring of their own. Mice from two dads were also born but only survived for a couple of days. The work looks at what makes it so challenging for animals of the same sex to produce offspring and suggests that some of these barriers can be overcome using stem cells and targeted gene editing.


Human retinas grown in a dish explain how color vision develops



Posted: 11 Oct 2018 11:31 AM PDT


Biologists grew human retina tissue from scratch to determine how cells that allow people to see in color are made.


Do lizards dream like us?



Posted: 11 Oct 2018 11:30 AM PDT


Researchers have confirmed that lizards exhibit two sleep states, just like humans, other mammals, and birds. They corroborated the conclusions of a 2016 study on the bearded dragon and conducted the same sleep investigation on another lizard, the Argentine tegu. Their findings nevertheless point out differences between species, which raises new questions about the origin of sleep states.


Newly described fossils could help reveal why some dinos got so big



Posted: 10 Oct 2018 01:47 PM PDT


A new, in-depth anatomical description of the best preserved specimens of a car-sized sauropod relative from North America could help paleontologists with unraveling the mystery of why some dinosaurs got so big.


Role of 'natural factors' on recent climate change underestimated, research shows



Posted: 10 Oct 2018 07:56 AM PDT


Pioneering new research has given a new perspective on the crucial role that 'natural factors' play in global warming.


Icy moon of Jupiter, Ganymede, shows evidence of past strike-slip faulting



Posted: 10 Oct 2018 07:55 AM PDT


A recently published study reveals Ganymede, an icy moon of Jupiter, appears to have undergone complex periods of geologic activity, specifically strike-slip tectonism, as is seen in Earth's San Andreas fault.
