    A Mysterious Human Ancestor Gets A Face And A Body

    No one has locked eyes with a Denisovan for tens of thousands of years. These mysterious humans left behind few bones, unlike their close Neanderthal relatives, on their way to extinction. All the remains confirmed to be Denisovan - part of a pinkie finger, half a jawbone, some teeth - could rest comfortably in a shoe box.

    3.8-Million-Year-Old Skull Is An Iconic Specimen In Humans' Evolution

    About 3.8 million years ago, a distant human relative took his final steps. Swept into a river delta, his head was buried in sand that, over time, hardened into a stone helmet. The skull fossilized within the sandstone, to the delight of the scientists who discovered the cranium in 2016.

    Jaw From Mysterious Human Species Shows Early Embrace Of The High Life

    Fossils Show World-Wide Catastrophe On The Day Dinosaurs Died

    Sixty-six million years ago, a massive asteroid crashed into a shallow sea near Mexico. The impact carved out a 90-mile-wide crater and flung mountains of earth into space. Earthbound debris fell to the planet in droplets of molten rock and glass.

    Massive Garbage-Cleaner Won't Work, Experts Said. Ocean Proved Them Right

    The remarkable journey of a multimillion-dollar plan to remove plastic from the Pacific began with a teenager's TEDx talk. In 2012, 18-year-old Boyan Slat proposed an invention to collect garbage from the ocean's surface. His talk went viral.

    Saturn's Rings Are Already Halfway To Their Death

    If dinosaurs had possessed telescopes and the will to gaze skyward 100 million years ago, they might have seen a very different Saturn - one without its iconic rings. And if humans manage to survive another 100 million years, our descendants may also miss the discs of ice and dust that encircle the golden gas giant.

    Termites In Brazil Built Millions Of Huge Mounds, The Size Of Minnesota

    In northeastern Brazil, in a forest so dry that the trees blanch bone-white, termites have been busy at work for millennia. The only external signs of their labor are dirt mounds, garbage dumps from their underground excavations. Dirt and garbage normally inspire as much awe as toenail clippings - but these are truly marvelous slag piles. The conic...

    Whales Go Quiet And Dolphins Shout In Loud Oceans, New Studies Show

    The oceans are loud and getting louder all the time. And marine mammals must live in the din. These animals take different approaches to the noise: Dolphins perform the equivalent of shouting. Humpback whales, when competing with a nearby boat, go silent.
