Group B contained the manned wolf, the dingo and the kit fox. These species only had facial markings that indicate the position of the eyes and the pupils aren't visible. They also tend towards the single life, or bonded pairs. All three species g
In the beginning of life these images are produced by the template itself, then pass to our primary parental contracts and on to us. The image changes only when we override the original template with our beliefs or our desires. Even so, it would only
Sheldrake probably provokes such strong reactions in part because he is a product of the scientific establishment—more specifically, of Cambridge University. He earned his doctorate in biochemistry there in 1967 and became a fellow and director of st
He was intermittently depressed, but that was only the beginning. His mother had suffered from depression and committed suicide on Mother's Day, when Kurt was 21 and home on military leave during World War II. His son, Mark, was originally diagnosed
The North Pole is moving. Not the geographic axis around which Earth spins, of course, but rather its magnetic pole, the north end of which is slowly but steadily wandering across the Arctic Ocean toward Siberia. Scientists have known about our plane
A new study of the tiny nematode worm C. elegans begins to explain this marvel of calorie restriction and hints at an easier way to achieve longevity. This image shows a nematode worm C. elegans with muscle cells fluorescently labeled in green and ge
It was the moment that humanity learned we had the awesome power to erase an entire species off the face of the Earth in the scientific equivalent of a blink of an eye: The passenger pigeon went from billions of birds to extinct before our very eyes.
Now, measurements from Herschel reveal that a molecule known as OH+, which is a positively charged combination of single oxygen and hydrogen atoms and can go on to form water, is spewed out as part of the nebula (it's highlighted in the image above)
Reisser said the research showed diatoms -- tiny algae that were the most commonly found microbe living on the microplastics -- were using the little pieces as a "boat" to move around on the surface of the ocean. As more and more diatoms -- wh
Turning science fiction into science fact seems to happen quite often these days and NASA did it by announcing the discovery of hidden portals in Earth's magnetic field. NASA calls them X-points or electron diffusion regions. They are places where t
Much of modern science remains stuck in an endless inward spiral of false paradigms. That's why "scientific" medicine, for example, offers no real answers to the really big diseases: cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer's, and so on. More im
"These studies suggest that surface waters are not the final destination for buoyant plastic debris in the ocean," researchers wrote in a study published on Monday, June 30, in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Where i
Frank Wolfs, Professor of Physics at the University of Rochester, provides his undergraduate physics students with a good working definition of the scientific method: "the process by which scientists, collectively and over time, endeavor to construct
During the experiment, Dr Canto-Soler's team were able to encourage initial growth of the retina, which then continued developing on its own. "When we began this work, we didn't think stem cells would be able to build up a retina almost on thei
Meditation is becoming very popular lately. Perhaps it's the anecdotal evidence friends are sharing with each other or the fact that more and more science is coming out to confirm the benefits of meditation that it's encouraging people to take up the
This effort to power down the transponder caused a power outage of the plane's connection with a satellite, requiring that connection to be renegotiated to establish a new "handshake." It is this highly unusual request for a new satellite handshak
He argues that if a thin wormhole stays open long enough, people might send messages instantly through time using pulses of light. Wormholes are theoretical tunnels that create shortcuts in space-time. Dr Luke Butcher at Cambridge University argue
space rock that slammed into Earth some 33.7 million years ago not only took a gouge out of the planet but also may be linked to the Eocene mass extinction, scientists say.
An extrapolation from data acquired by a recent global sampling expedition by research ships suggests 7,000 to 35,000 thousand tons of plastic debris is floating in the world's oceans, much less than the estimated 1 million tons data going back as f
n this case, 14-year-old Joshua Osborn fell seriously ill in the summer of 2013. Fluid collected in his brain and he had serious seizures. Yet all of the tests doctors gave him didn't found any traces of fungi, bacteria or viruses, the doctors repor
Ultrasound device "This is the first time anyone has demonstrated a working acoustic tractor beam and the first time such a beam has been used to move anything bigger than microscopic targets," said Dr Christine Demore of Imsat.
It started with an observation and a question. The girls noticed that if they slept with their mobile phones near their heads at night, they often had difficulty concentrating at school the next day. They wanted to test the effect of a cellphone's ra
Scientists in Australia tagged a healthy 9-foot great white shark as part of program to track these animals. Four months later they found the tracking device washed up on a beach.Something—something really big—had eaten this apex predator. But what c
More than 40 years after a Soviet nuclear physicist proposed an outlandish theory that trios of particles can arrange themselves in an infinite nesting-doll configuration, experimentalists have reported strong evidence that this bizarre state of matt
The agency intercepts "millions of images per day" — including about 55,000 "facial recognition quality images" — which translate into "tremendous untapped potential," according to 2011 documents obtained from the former agency contractor Edward J. S
This experiment would recreate a process that was important in the first 100 seconds of the universe and that is also seen in gamma ray bursts, which are the biggest explosions in the universe and one of physics' greatest unsolved mysteries.
The space telescope will scan an area of sky in the direction of the constellation Sagittarius to try and identify any objects orbiting within the Kuiper Belt. To discriminate between a foreground KBO and the clutter of background stars in Sagittariu
''If it ever does happen it will be far in the future.'' Prof Hanson's team showed for the first time that it was possible to teleport information encoded into sub-atomic particles between two points three metres apart with 100% reliability.
In living organisms, G, T, C and A come together to form two base pairs, G-C and T-A. The extra synthetic DNA forms a third base pair, X-Y, according to the study in Nature. These base pairs are used to make genes, which cells use as templates for ma
Humans rarely catch sight of the tiny catfish, and it inhabits only one area in the world: the Western Ghats mountain range in Kerala, India. Though the fish lives underground, it has been known to emerge occasionally in the springs, wells and floode
