Reading a Cuttlefish's Mind — On Its Skin  

Pity the cuttlefish that tries to play poker. Where humans might blush when embarrassed or go white when frightened, cuttlefish wear their thoughts on their skins much more literally. Our own color transformations are caused by nothing more than changes in the blood flowing right under our skin, and it's a poor marker of what our actual thoughts are. Cuttlefish, by contrast, are covered in up to millions of tiny pigment-filled cells called chromatophores. Muscles in the cells stretch to ...

Why Dandelion Seeds Are So Good At Floating  

Dandelion blowing may be about as close to a universal experience as there is. Kids and adults alike delight in huffing the white fluffy seeds from a dried sample of Taraxacum officinale, and watching them fly away. But as with all things in nature, it only happens that way because it works. Dandelion seeds can travel for miles before setting down, making them particularly efficient fliers. And scientists didn't really know why. Other plant seeds, such as maples, use more of a wing-like...

Astronomers May Have Spotted Another Neutron Star Merger  

In 2017, gravitational waves and light were observed coming from the merger of a pair of neutron stars. The discovery proved that gravitational wave sources could also be viewed at visible, X-ray, and even gamma-ray wavelengths, but has remained the only such event observed to date. Now, researchers have identified a "cosmic look-alike" — an event they believe came from the same type of system as the one that produced the gravitational waves. Seeing Double Such a discovery woul...

Earliest Flesh-Ripping Fish Found (With Nibbled Victims)  

Jumping right out of nightmares and into my heart (it's kind of cute, isn't it?), meet Fincutter, the Bavarian Piranha. Less than three inches long, the Late Jurassic fossil is the earliest ray-finned fish with flesh-ripping teeth — and paleontologists say it was preserved alongside some of its prey. Piranhamesodon pinnatomus ("pinnatomus" = fincutter) turned up in the same fabulously fossiliferous Bavarian quarry that has given us specimens of Archaeopteryx and other key Jurassic an...

An Extraterrestrial Search Physicists at the University of California, Santa Barbara are taking a unique approach to the search for extraterrestrial life. Instead of searching the cosmos for radio signals, they're hunting for brilliant light beams to locate intelligent beings in the Andromeda Galaxy. It's inspired by UC Santa Barbara physicist Phil Lubin's previous suggestion that we could propel tiny spacecraft to nearby stars at about 20 percent the speed of light with lasers. If w...

How Climatic Changes Toppled The Ancient Megacity Of Angkor  

Angkor, one of the most significant archaeological sites in Southeast Asia, was a thriving metropolis at the center of the Khmer Empire in the 13th century. Then its inhabitants suddenly left town. Now, researchers find abrupt climatic changes and vulnerable infrastructure led to the city's demise. It's a cautionary tale for modern cities, many of which are already feeling the stress of climate change. Monumental Megacity Once a vast, urban hub, Angkor was the capitol city of a kingdom ...

The deformities aren't relics of early microbial life, says the team, but rather a snapshot of geological forces shaping and reshaping our world.

A dust storm in Greenland? Beautiful satellite images show one far north of the Arctic Circle

Even so, it was large enough to be visible from space. You can see it in the Sentinel-2 satellite image above: a grayish plume of fine silt being swept up by northwesterly winds. The source: a dry bed of a braided river valley that ends in Scoresby Sound on Greenland's east coast. This is about 80 miles northwest of Ittoqqortoomiit...

In 1927, a prescient astronomer named Georges Lemaître looked at data showing how galaxies move. He noticed something peculiar - all of them appeared to be speeding away from Earth. Not only that, but the farther away they were, the faster they went. He determined a mathematical way to represent this, and connected his relationship to Einstein's law of General Relativity to produce a grand idea: That of a universe continually expanding. It was a radical idea then, but today it fits with...

Saturn's Ring Rain is a Downpour, Not a Drizzle  

Before it plunged into the atmosphere of Saturn on its final death dive, the Cassini spacecraft made 22 orbits of the planet that followed a path no probe had taken before: It flew between the massive planet and its rings. During those final orbits, Cassini's Ion and Neutral Mass Spectrometer (INMS) spotted water ice and complex organic molecules flowing from the rings to the atmosphere of the planet: ring rain. But it turns out, "ring rain is more like a ring downpour," according to H...

This is What NASA Learned When Cassini Dove Into Saturn  

Over its nearly 20 year mission, NASA's Cassini spacecraft redefined our understanding of Saturn. And while Cassini sent its final transmissions to Earth as it dove into the ringed planet last September, scientists have just published more than half a dozen papers using data collected during its "Grand Finale." The studies, published in both Science and the Geophysical Research Letters help refine our knowledge of the planet and its rings and how they evolved. Planetary scientist Hunter

Wild Sparrows Learn Experimental Songs  

Researchers have taught a population of wild sparrows to sing a different song. Out today in Current Biology, the research suggests new answers to the question of how birds learn to sing. "This was a risky experiment we conducted because we didn't know if it was going to work," says Dan Mennill, lead author of the study. Mennill explains that song learning has been studied for years in controlled laboratory settings. But it's much more difficult to run an experiment in the ...

Honey Bees May Fight Off Viruses With Help From Fungi  

It's not easy being a bee these days. Apis mellifera, the Western honey bee, is crucial to agriculture worldwide but faces a growing number of pests and pathogens against which beekeepers have few weapons. But the bees themselves may be showing us the way forward: New research suggests the foraging insects may obtain protection against some viruses by consuming fungi, then returning to the hive to spread its medicinal value. Honey bees contribute more than $15 billion annually to U....

"Rather than flying away from the [Milky Way's] Galactic Center, most of the high velocity stars we spotted seem to be racing

An intricate web of cracks adorns the wrinkly, gray skin of Africa's bush elephants. The tiny crevices hold water, which helps keep the animals cool and prevents dehydration in their dry habitat.
