Zircon in a meteorite opens the door on Mars’ past

A meteorite from Mars unexpectedly contains zircons that reveal the planets history. The rock likely comes from one of the solar system's tallest volcanoes. Analyzing the zirconium required smashing some very expensive rock. Just last week, we wrote about one lab's conclusion that water may be a common byproduct in the formation of rocky planets. This week, the same lab has announced that the very same Martian meteorite that led to that earlier finding has yet another secret to reveal: It co...

Water may naturally occur as rocky planets form, new study suggests

The meteorite behind the new research, Black Beauty, is 4.45 billion years old. This means it is from right around the time when Mars formed.It contained intact, ancient water-bearing minerals.The research indicates later asteroid-impact effects that could only have occurred if water was already present. Almost exactly two years ago, we wrote about a theory that about 1 in 100 of our water molecules came not from asteroids — as is widely believed — but from hydrogen in Earth's core, a remnant o...

New tardigrade species withstands lethal UV radiation thanks to fluorescent 'shield'

Apparently, some water bears can even beat extreme UV light.It may be an adaptation to the summer heat in India.Special under-skin pigments neutralize harmful rays.

Scientists stumble across new organs in the human head

Scientists using new scanning technology and hunting for prostate tumors get a surprise.Behind the nasopharynx is a set of salivary glands that no one knew about.Finding the glands may allow for more complication-free radiation therapies.

In addition to being a promising new technology for detecting t...

New Hubble images add to the dark matter puzzle

Scientists can detect the gravitational effects of invisible dark matter.Dark matter causes visual distortions of what's behind it.The greater the distortion, the greater the amount of dark matter. Maybe. Dark matter is believed to be important stuff, the glue that holds together the dust, gas, and stars that make up galaxies. It's the organizing force for the universe's large-scale structure, the shape you'd see if you were able to zoom way, way out, and it comprises most of a galaxy's mass.We...

How a musician locks onto a rhythm, according to science

When a person locks onto a beat, it's because their brain rhythms have become aligned with it.Listening and physically performing are brain functions not directly related to rhythm synchronization.The study tracked EEG brain activity during listening, playing along, and recreating rhythms. For as long as anyone remembers, parents have rocked their babies to sleep. The simple, regular rhythm soothes and relaxes a wee one, and research has shown that the same thing can even help adults sleep and ...
