Farmer digs up woolly mammoth bones in Michigan soy field

Farmer digs up woolly mammothA farmer near Chelsea made a startling discovery Monday night: bones of a woolly mammoth possibly butchered by early human hunters thousands of years ago.

James Bristle and a friend were digging in a soy field off of Scio Church Road west of Fletcher in Washtenaw County's Lima Township when they came up with something very out of the ordinary.

"It was probably a rib bone that


Nasa scientists find evidence of flowing water on Mars

Water on MarsLiquid water runs down canyons and crater walls over the summer months on Mars, according to researchers who say the discovery raises the chances of being home to some form of life.

The trickles leave long, dark stains on the Martian terrain that can reach hundreds of metres downhill in the warmer months, before they dry up in the autumn as surface temperatures drop.


Supermassive black hole bigger than scientists thought was possible

giant black holeAstronomers in England have discovered a supermassive black hole many times larger than should be possible.

In astrophysics, very few rules are hard and fast. There are mostly just loose parameters, theories and informed expectations -- expectations that are constantly being subverted by newly discovered phenomena.


Electron transport between species discovered in deep-sea research

Electrons transfer between speiciesResearchers at the California Institute of Technology have discovered two microbial species capable of sharing the energy needed to consume methane through electron transfer without direct contact.

Researchers say it is the first time interspecies electron transport, or the external passing of electrons from one type of cell to another, has been discovered among microorganisms in a natural setting.


Mini triceratops-like dinosaur could be new species

New triceratops speciessA team of Colorado researchers say there's nothing else like the dinosaur specimen they unearthed. Though it's yet to be given a scientific name, scientists dubbed the dino "Ava," due to its resemblance of triceratops relative Avaceratops.

The dinosaur's fossils were discovered at the Judith River Formation in Montana. They're dated at 75 million years old, placing the dino's heyday within the Campanian stage of the Late Cretaceous.


Scientists ‘Reeling’ From New Pluto Pics

Photos from PlutoAs celestial bodies go, Pluto is far more surprising than anyone could have expected.

“Pluto is showing us a diversity of landforms and complexity of processes that rival anything we’ve seen in the solar system,” said New Horizons Principal Investigator Alan Stern, of the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in Boulder, Colorado, in the official Nasa announcement that also claimed scientists were ‘reeling’ from seeing the new pictures.


Bones in South African cave reveal new human relative

bones of early relative found in so. AfricaScientists say they've discovered a new member of the human family tree, revealed by a huge trove of bones in a barely accessible, pitch-dark chamber of a cave in South Africa.

The creature shows a surprising mix of human-like and more primitive characteristics — some experts called it "bizarre" and "weird."

And the discovery presents some key mysteries: How old are the bones? And how did they get into that chamber, reachable only by a complicated pathway that includes squeezing through passages as narrow as about 7½ inches (17.8 centimeters)?
