|115,000-Year-Old Engraved Bones Found in China
Posted: 19 Jul 2019 11:31 AM PDT
Archaeologists digging at an early hominin site in China have discovered two engraved bone fragments that date back nearly 115,000 years. The two weathered bone fragments were found at the site of Lingjing in Xuchang county of China’s Henan province. The specimens were examined by Dr. Francesco d’Errico from the Universities of Bordeaux and Bergen […]
|Researchers 3D Print Ferromagnetic Liquid Droplets
Posted: 19 Jul 2019 10:48 AM PDT
Using a modified 3D printer, an international team of researchers led by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has made a new material that is both liquid and magnetic, opening the door to a new area of science in magnetic soft matter. Their findings, published in the journal Science, could lead to a revolutionary class of printable […]
|Resveratrol May Protect against Muscle Atrophy Induced by Martian Gravity
Posted: 19 Jul 2019 06:56 AM PDT
In a study done in rats, a moderate daily dose of resveratrol — a natural antioxidant found in more than 70 species of plants such as grapes, cranberries, blueberries, and peanuts — preserved muscle function and mitigated muscle atrophy in the animals exposed to a ground-based partial gravity analog that mimicked Martian environment (0.4 g). […]
|Botanists Discover New Tree Species in Tanzania
Posted: 19 Jul 2019 05:36 AM PDT
An international team of researchers has discovered a new species of tree growing in the forests of the Usambara Mountains in Tanzania. The newfound tree species belongs to the genus Mischogyne (family Annonaceae, tribe Monodoreae), a group of small- to medium-sized tropical trees and shrubs. Named Mischogyne iddii, the species grows up to 33-66 feet […]
|TESS Observes Unusual Type Ia Supernova: ASASSN-18tb
Posted: 19 Jul 2019 03:40 AM PDT
Astronomers have used NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) to see what was happening around the supernova ASASSN-18tb in the first moments after it exploded — an unprecedented opportunity. ASASSN-18tb is a Type Ia supernova, a type of stellar explosion that can occur when two stars orbit one another — what astronomers call a binary […]
