Mathematics predicts a sixth mass extinction

Added: 20.09.2017 23:21 | 27 views | 0 comments

Scientists have analyzed significant changes in the carbon cycle over the last 540 million years, including the five mass extinction events. They have identified 'thresholds of catastrophe' in the carbon cycle that, if exceeded, would lead to an unstable environment, and ultimately, mass extinction.

Genome editing reveals role of gene important for human embryo development

Added: 20.09.2017 19:41 | 12 views | 0 comments

Researchers have used genome editing technology to reveal the role of a key gene in human embryos in the first few days of development. This is the first time that genome editing has been used to study gene function in human embryos, which could help scientists to better understand the biology of our early development.

New concept of terrestrial planet formation

Added: 20.09.2017 19:31 | 13 views | 0 comments

Scientists are proposing a new way of understanding the cooling and transfer of heat from terrestrial planetary interiors and how that affects the generation of the volcanic terrains that dominate the rocky planets.

Scientists make atoms-thick 'Post-It notes' for solar cells and circuits

Added: 20.09.2017 19:22 | 6 views | 0 comments

A new study describes an innovative method to make stacks of semiconductors just a few atoms thick. The technique offers scientists and engineers a simple, cost-effective method to make thin, uniform layers of these materials, which could expand capabilities for devices from solar cells to cell phones.

Guess who? Facial expressions can cause confusion

Added: 20.09.2017 19:04 | 5 views | 0 comments

Photos of the same person can look substantially different. For example, your passport photo may look quite different from your driving license, or your face in holiday photos. Research has shown when photos of an individual's face are judged too dissimilar to go together, people will tend to think they show several different identities. Scientists have tested this concept further by exploring what happens when the photos show faces with different expressions.

Bite force research reveals dinosaur-eating frog

Added: 20.09.2017 19:01 | 16 views | 0 comments

Scientists say that a large, now extinct, frog called Beelzebufo that lived about 68 million years ago in Madagascar would have been capable of eating small dinosaurs. The conclusion comes from a study of the bite force of South American horned frogs from the living genus Ceratophrys, known as Pacman frogs for their characteristic round shape and large mouth, similar to the video game character Pac-Man.
