Hans Asperger and the Nazis  

Big news this week as Hans Asperger, autism pioneer and namesake of Asperger's syndrome, is accused of having collaborated in the murder of children during the Nazi rule in Austria. The accusations come in the form of a long paper by historian Herwig Czech in the journal Molecular Autism. Czech presents an analysis of Asperger's activities as head of the Heilpädagogik Ward of the Pediatric Clinic at the University of Vienna, from 1935 to 1943. Here, Asperger was responsible for the evalu...

Fruit Flies Sure Enjoy Ejaculating  

Throughout history we've blushed and called it la petite mort, the sting of pleasure, the balsamic injection, the flood of bliss—the list continues. But let's cut to the chase: I'm talking about ejaculation. It's almost seems as if some deep-seated Puritanical modesty compels us to semantically sidestep addressing this perfectly natural function. Perhaps we're just a bit bashful that it feels really, really good. It's not polite to discuss such scrumptious pleasures publicly...

This Organ Helps Sea Nomads Dive Deeper for Longer  

When we think of the organs that help humans stay alive under the water, the heart and lungs top the list. But there's another organ that deserves recognition as well, though few of us would think to name it. It's the spleen. Mammals have a unique response to having our faces engulfed by water. Our heart rate slows and peripheral blood vessels constrict, shunting blood to vital organs where it's needed most. At the same time, our spleens release a cache of red blood vessels held for thi...

Hole-y Cow! Earliest Evidence of Cranial Surgery On Animals  

The average cow needs cranial surgery like it needs a hole in the head, but for one ancient bovine, it appears that's exactly what the doctor ordered. Researchers describing a hole in the skull of a Neolithic cow say it's possibly the earliest example of veterinary surgery — though it may have also been mere practice for performing the procedure on a human patient. Trepanation, or the act of intentionally making a hole in the skull, has a long history in our species (and it's sti...

A shark-shaped, climate-shifting blob of warm water — as wide as the Pacific Ocean — is rising from the depths  

The 'shark' will soon gobble up La Niña's cool surface waters. What might this mean for the climate later this year? It's not every day that you see an animated graphic like the one above hosted on the website of an ordinarily staid U.S. government agency. And yes, that is indeed an illustration comparing a complex Earth system phenomenon to, well, a shark. The comparison comes from the fabulous folks at the ENSO Blog, published under the aegis of the National Oceanic and Atmos...

One Simple Trick To Improve Credibility  

It's intuitive: We hear a message, think about it, and decide whether or not we believe it. We have to do it whenever we get a new piece of information in our lives, from politics to the news to gossip, so you'd think we'd be good at it by now. But studies constantly show that our squishy human brains don't make it quite so easy. Presenting information in different ways — whether there's a photo included, or changing the colors of the words — affects our interpretation of it, ...

Earth's climate went kind of schizo in March  

Earth has been taking a very slight breather this year from the seemingly unrelenting record-setting global temperatures observed in the previous two years. And this past month was no exception. By NASA's accounting, March 2018 was the sixth warmest such month in records dating back to 1880. In an independent analysis, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration pegged March as fifth warmest. And for the first quarter of the year (January through March), NOAA shows the period a...

At the Bottom of the Ocean, a Surprising, Gloomy Discovery  

Almost two miles below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, on a lonely outcrop of bare rock 100 miles from Costa Rica, researchers on a geological expedition found something odd. As their remotely controlled submersible sunk through the black waters toward the seafloor, they saw a collection of purple lumps dotting the rocky bottom. As they got closer, they resolved themselves into something resembling a bowling ball with suckers. It was a group of female octopuses, of the genus Muusoctop...

Your Next Pilot Could Be Drone Software  

Would you get on a plane that didn't have a human pilot in the cockpit? Half of air travelers surveyed in 2017 said they would not, even if the ticket was cheaper. Modern pilots do such a good job that almost any air accident is big news, such as the Southwest engine disintegration on Tuesday. But stories of pilot drunkenness, rants, fights and distraction, however rare, are reminders that pilots are only human. Not every plane can be flown by a disaster-averting pilot, like Southwest C...

No One Knows How Long the U.S. Coastline Is  

How long is the U.S. coastline? It's a straightforward question, and one that's important for scientists and government agencies alike. The U.S. Geological Survey could give you an answer, too, but I'm going to tell you right now that it's wrong. In fact, no one could give you the right answer, and if you look around, you'll find a number of estimations that differ by seemingly improbable amounts. One government report lists the number as 12,383 miles. The same report admits that a diffe...

This Flower May Make Multicolored Pollen Just to Please Bugs  

The trout lily is a North American spring wildflower that's cuter than its name suggests. Dappled leaves frame a little yellow blossom that keeps its face shyly toward the ground. Inside the bloom, the flower's anthers and pollen vary from bright yellow to dark red. Researchers could find no purpose for the different colors—except, maybe, to satisfy the whims of pollinating insects. Plenty of flowers come in multiple petal colors, and other research has explored the reasons, write...

100 Years Later: The Lessons of Encephalitis Lethargica  

In 1917, at the height of the Great War, a new and mysterious disease emerged into the world, before vanishing a few years later. Although it was to prove less destructive than the 1918 influenza pandemic which occured at around the same time, the new outbreak had a persistent legacy: some of the victims of the disease remained disabled decades later. The new syndrome was first reported by Constantin von Economo, a neurologist in Vienna. He dubbed the disease 'encephalitis lethargica', after

Your Weekly Attenborough: Electrotettix attenboroughi  

Last week I waxed mildly poetic on the ephemeral nature of living beings and the inorganic reality of a fossil. Fossils are just shadows, I said, or memories ... or something like that. Well, this week I've got something much more exciting and less poetic. It's an ancient pygmy grasshopper, Electrotettix attenboroughi, and it's no rocky fossil, no sir.

We've all heard of sweating bullets, but this is something else entirely. A medical case report from Italian researchers last year details a 21-year-old patient who began mysteriously sweating blood from her face and palms.

Climate Change Is Weakening a Crucial Ocean Current  

When you picture the rugged coastlines of Norway, tropical heat probably doesn't come to mind, but it should. Even in the country's Arctic reaches, the coast is typically free from ice and snow, and the weather is often more Seattle than Anchorage. How can that be? Residents can thank the Gulf Stream, an ocean conveyor belt that pushes warm water their way from the tropics. And Northern Europeans aren't the only ones who should be thankful, either. Much of Europe and the east coast...

Double Dose Of Ichthyosaur Updates: Big Daddy and Octomom  

Dinosaurs may hog the Mesozoic spotlight, but some of the neatest finds of recent note in paleontology come from under the sea: a very pregnant ichthyosaur and the partial remains of another that was a supersized specimen (think blue whale territory).

Brains or Biofilm? Doubts Over Famous "Soft Tissue" Fossils  

Few things get armchair paleontologists as excited as the phrase "soft tissue preservation." But a new study is casting doubt on some of the most stunning of these finds: Researchers argue that claims of brains, nerves and blood vessels preserved in animals for 520 million years are just a bunch of microbial goo called biofilm. For the last decade, researchers working in Southern China have described a number of fossils from Stage 3 of the Cambrian Period, more than 500 million year...

At about 13,000 years old, the tracks pre-date the end of the last ice age. Ancient trackways have provided valuable information about the presence and physical traits of humans and other hominins, and they've occasionally stirred up controversy. Today, researchers describe 29 human footprin...

Cheetah Hitches a Ride During African Safari  

People go on safaris in Africa to see wildlife and experience the wonders of nature. One safari group, however, got uncomfortably close with nature. Curious about the vehicle, a cheetah jumped on the hood of the group's vehicle. While everyone focused on that one,  another cheetah decided to jump into the SUV.. "The sheer tension of sitting in a vehicle thinking, 'I'm going to die,' and then living. We just, everyone in the car just looked at each other, we paused for 10 seconds as t...

Triassic Park: A Decade-Long Labor To Recreate A Lost World  

You've probably heard about The Great Dying, more formally known as the End-Permian mass extinction, when more than 95 percent of species worldwide went extinct. This darkest hour in the story of life on Earth occurred some 251 million years ago, most likely the result of monstrous, region-wide volcanic activity in Siberia that acidified the oceans, wrecked the climate and may have even ripped open the ozone layer to allow in rather nasty levels of ultraviolet radiation.

WWII Warship Lost with Five Sullivan Brothers Has Been Found  

One of the most well-known stories of family sacrifice in wartime is the loss of the five Sullivan brothers aboard the light cruiser USS Juneau during World War II. That story resurfaced after an expedition headed by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen discovered wreckage from the USS Juneau lying on the ocean floor in the South Pacific. Serving together aboard the USS Juneau, the Sullivan brothers were all lost at sea after their battle-damaged warship received a torpedo hit that blew the Ju
