In the United States, a team made up of scientists from several universities conducted the first detailed analysis of shark intestines. The resulting 3D images amazed the researchers – they show that the shark’s intestines function exactly like the one-way valve invented by Nikola Tesla.
For the first time in the history of observations, astronomers have recorded X-rays reflected from the far side of the…
The Spektr-RG Space Observatory has helped astronomers see the early stages of the tidal disruption of a star by a…
Astronomers have recorded the shortest gamma-ray burst ever produced by the collapse of a massive star. The discovery may question the generally accepted classification of gamma-ray bursts based on their duration.
Juno’s onboard science instrument Juno Waves “listened” to radio emissions coming from the side of Jupiter’s magnetic field and gave scientists the opportunity to determine the boundaries of the regions with radiation.
Planetary scientists working with the seismograph SEIS of the Martian automatic station InSight have published new results of the analysis…
While our attention was preoccupied with Ingenuity’s historical flights in the rough Martian atmosphere, the rover found its way to the planned research location about a kilometer south of the landing site. It is almost time to begin its search for signs of ancient life on Mars.
Scientists analyzed old ice samples from the Tibetan plateau and found in them the genomic sequences of more than 30 ancient viruses, most of which were not previously known to science. The viruses from the Guliya ice cap have been given an approximate point of origin – around 15,000 years ago.
Paleogeneticists analyzed sediment samples from the Georgian cave of Satsurbia and found ancient DNA fragments of a wolf, a bison, as well as a person who lived about 25 thousand years ago. The woman whose DNA was studied belonged to a completely unknown human population.
In the process of genetic analysis of the microbial community of the swamp, American scientists discovered a new type of huge genetic element, probably capable of assimilating the genes of archaea. For this reason, they were named after the Borg civilization from the science fiction series Star Trek – Borg DNA.
An interdisciplinary team of scientists analyzed data from the Curiosity rover and identified the location of an unknown source of methane emissions, particles of which were previously recorded in the atmosphere of the Red Planet and intrigued the researchers.
The Event Horizon Telescope has obtained the most detailed image of relativistic jets erupting from the core of the Centaurus A radio galaxy. It turned out that the structure of the jets closely resembles the jet in the active galaxy M87 on a scale of up to five hundred gravitational radii of a black hole.
American geneticists analyzed 279 genomes of modern and 3 archaic people and found that the human genome is only 1.5-7 percent unique in relation to other hominins.
An international team of researchers led by physicists from the University of Cambridge found the first evidence of the presence of an anomalous phase of matter on our planet, the existence of which was predicted back in the 1960s.
Observations have shown that carbon-13 isotopes are present in the atmosphere of the planet TYC 8998-760-1 b, which have never been discovered on a planet outside the solar system in the past.
Almost half a century ago, scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology built a model according to which the unrestrained pursuit of economic growth and inattention to environmental and social problems will lead to the fact that 2020 will be a turning point, and two decades later, there would be a global civilization collapse.
Planetary scientists have proposed a possible explanation for the nature of Venusian phosphine without involving the activity of microorganisms. The emergence of this potential biomarker is assumed to be responsible for plume volcanism, which is still active on Venus.
Scientists have found that the possibility to breathe “with a full chest filled with oxygen” became appeared about 2.5 billion years ago and was caused by the impacts of city-sized asteroids.
Cosmic Explosions 10 Times More Powerful Than a Supernova To Solve 13-Billion-Year-Old Space Mystery
Hypernova outbursts could be the main suppliers of r-process elements in the earliest stages of galaxy formation. Astronomers came to this conclusion after studying one of the stars in the halo of the Milky Way.
Imagine finding out that you are a descendant of one of the greatest historical figures like Leonardo da Vinci.
NASA’s Parker Solar Probe, whose primary mission is to study the sun, detected something curious during its flyby near Venus…
Scientists have grown human cells in monkey embryos with the aim to understand how cells develop and interact with each…
