Some of today’s biggest names unite with a selection of today’s most visually-gifted filmmakers for a unique cinematic experience that crosses 5 Galaxies!
A very interesting fossil was officially revealed to the public today at Canada’s Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology. It looks like a statue, but it isn’t. It’s an actual dinosaur, hardened into stone — and it’s one of the clearest looks we’ve ever gotten at prehistoric life.
People with a general idea of how space works may assume everything we left on the Moon from the US trips in the late 60’s and early 70’s should remain exactly the way it is, footprints and all, given a lack of interference. This isn’t entirely true. Future visitors to the Moon may see an odd white handkerchief on a pole instead of the Stars and Stripes.

It’s the time of year when things ice up and it can be a struggle to get down a sidewalk without breaking a hip. But most of us manage to do it. Scientists have recently discovered that this minor miracle is the result of a cluster of nerves in our spinal cord that serve as a “mini brain,” aiding in balance.
Using laser-driven compression, a team of researchers have created an experiment that’s giving new insight into what it’s like in the cores of giant super-Earths and during the birth of earth-like planets.
Every review I’ve read of the new Nintendo 3DS and its head-tracking technology has been impressed with how it improves the 3D effect, but scientists in Vienna are working on a new approach to glasses free-3D that might make Nintendo’s device seem as the magic lantern is to today’s HD movies.
A human being knows that the image in the mirror is she. That’s why we spend so much time staring into them. Great apes have a similar capacity for narcissism. Monkeys, however, don’t make the connection between the monkey in the mirror and themselves.
New research shows that blue eyes in people originated between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago with one single common ancestor.
Les Baugh lost both of his arms at the shoulder level to an electrical accident 40 years ago. It’s a long time to adjust to life without them, to forget them.
One might have expected NASA’s Voyager 1, the first man-made object to leave the solar system, would have nothing but quiet, peaceful sojourning ahead of it. But it’s actually been a rather bumpy ride.
