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

    Denisovan and Neanderthals share a lineage that branched off from the ancestor of modern humans about 700,000 years ago. The two sister species then split apart about 300,000 years later.

    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.

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.

    This Is What Happens To A Shy Octopus On Ecstasy

    If you give an octopus MDMA, it will get touchy and want to mingle. What sounds like the premise of a children's book set at Burning Man is, in fact, the conclusion of a study published Thursday in the journal Current Biology. Neuroscientist Gul Dolen, who studies social behavior at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and octopus ex...

    Archaeologists Just Found The Oldest Drawing - A 70,000-Year-Old Hashtag

    Archaeologists who excavated a seaside cave in South Africa have discovered what they say is the world's oldest drawing. It is an abstract pattern, a crosshatch of red lines, like a hashtag, on a rock flake.

  • Parker Solar Probe Launched in NASA's First Mission to 'Touch' the Sun and Study Its Dangers

    Parker Solar Probe Launched in NASA's First Mission to 'Touch' the Sun and Study Its Dangers

    The sun's atmosphere regularly erupts with fast-moving flashes of protons and explosions of energetic particles that can hit Earth within minutes and disrupt radio communication, interfere with GPS, and fry the electric grid.

    This NASA Spacecraft Will Probe One Of Earth's Scariest Threats - The Sun

    The source of all light and life on Earth is also the source of one of its biggest natural threats: space weather. The sun's atmosphere regularly erupts with fast-moving flashes of protons and explosions of energetic particles that can hit Earth within minutes and disrupt radio communication, interfere with GPS and fry the electric grid.

    Hope Diamond, Mined In India, Was Born At Hellish Depths Of Earth: Study

    Before the massive Hope Diamond came to rest in a Smithsonian exhibit, before the gem passed among wealthy owners and thieves and French royals, before it acquired its cursed reputation, before it was mined in India, the diamond was born at hellish depths beneath Earth's crust.
