Roughly 4 billion light years away in the constellation, Leo, the explosive remnant of a stellar collision between two neutron stars – predicted to be the source of all the gold and platinum in our universe – may have been caught on camera by an international team of researchers.
A team of researchers from Canada and the United States have unearthed the oldest pachycephalosaur fossil in North America – maybe even the world – and said its existence hints that other dinosaurs may also have had dog-sized versions.
A prehistoric riverbed has belched the fossil remains of a new creature that an international team of researchers say, shows dinosaurs may have started walking into the fossil record, as much as 15 million years earlier than previously thought.
From just four teeth, an international team of researchers have identified a new species of anthropoid primate – the ancestors of humans, apes and monkeys – that’s approximately 37-million years old. Weighing barely 100 grams – about as much as a small stick of butter – Afrasia djijidae may help bridge primate migration from Asia to Africa.
After analyzing magma samples from Mount St. Helens, researchers from the United Kingdom and Germany have linked changes in crystal growth and composition, to the tools used to monitor the volcano's activity.
A team of researchers from the United States and Australia have measured the bite-force and tooth-pressures in all 23 living species of crocodilians – including alligators, crocodiles, caimans and gharials.
After analyzing the mitochondrial DNA from Viking age and modern-day mice found in Iceland, Greenland and eastern Canada, an international team of researchers have found mice colonized the islands, alongside the Vikings.
Researchers have characterized the near complete fossils of two species of giant penguins. The fossils are so complete, researchers were able to create a sketch of the bird that went extinct nearly 27 million years ago
