Details Emerging on Tunguska Event Impact Crater. Imprimer
Écrit par (Dusty)   

Lake Cheko in Siberia has been noted as the probable crater of the 1908 Siberian Tunguska event. This news was covered and discussed in December, but details on the crater were scant. Now a new paper written by Luca Gasperini, Enrico Bonatti, and Giuseppe Longo ( the same team in Bologne, Italy that made news in December) has a horde of new details on the supposed crater.

No sex please, we're Amazonian Mollys Imprimer
Écrit par Smivs   

A fish species, which is all female, has survived for 70,000 years without reproducing sexually, experts believe. Scientists from the University of Edinburgh think the Amazon Molly may be employing special genetic survival "tricks" to avoid becoming extinct. The species, found in Texas and Mexico, interacts with males of other species to trigger its reproduction process. The offspring are clones of their mother and do not inherit any of the male's DNA. Dr Laurence Loewe, of the university's School of Biological Sciences, said: "What we have shown now is that this fish really has something special going on and that some special tricks exist to help this fish survive. "Maybe there is still occasional sex with strangers that keeps the species alive. Future research may give us some answers."

"She" (?) edits any and all entries to remove any text that addresses the other side of the GW discussion. Wikipedia logs apparently record all of her activity, and Solomon's blog entry here.

Workers Uncovering Mummified Dinosaur Imprimer
Écrit par bilbobaggins   
Unlike almost every other dinosaur fossil ever found, the Edmontosaurus named Dakota, a duckbilled dinosaur unearthed in southwestern North Dakota in 2004, is covered by fossilized skin that is hard as iron. It's among just a few mummified dinosaurs in the world, say the researchers who are slowly freeing it from a 65-million-year-old rock tomb.
