Study shows how electricity-eating microbes use electrons to fix carbon dioxide – Phys.org

A Washington University team showed how a phototrophic microbe called Rhodopseudomonas palustris takes up electrons from conductive substances like metal oxides or rust to reduce carbon dioxide. Credit: Bose laboratory, Washington University New research from Washington University in St. Louis explains the cellular processes that allow a sun-loving microbe to “eat” electricity—transferring electrons to fix […]

Paleontologists report world's biggest Tyrannosaurus rex: Nicknamed 'Scotty,' the record-breaking rex is also the largest dinosaur skeleton ever found in Canada – Science Daily

University of Alberta paleontologists have just reported the world’s biggest Tyrannosaurus rex and the largest dinosaur skeleton ever found in Canada. The 13-metre-long T. rex, nicknamed “Scotty,” lived in prehistoric Saskatchewan 66 million years ago. “This is the rex of rexes,” said Scott Persons, lead author of the study and postdoctoral researcher in the Department […]

Scientists find abundance of 500,000-year-old fossils in China – BGR

The thing about fossils is the older they are, the rarer they are. Earth doesn’t keep anything around forever, and the farther you go back in time the less likely you are to find evidence of the plants and animals that were alive then. So, when we’re talking about fossils of creatures that died over […]

Robots Allow Fish And Bees To Communicate With Each Other For The First Time – IFLScience

Robots Allow Fish And Bees To Communicate With Each Other For The First Time – IFLScience

Animal communication is fascinating and often way more complex than people realize. Humans are able to communicate with other species with some success but now, researchers have allowed two very different creatures to “talk” to each other. Using robots. As reported in Science Robotics, the team managed to get a group of bees located in Austria to telecommunicate […]

NASA snapped that monster meteor fireball over the Bering Sea – CNET

NASA’s Terra satellite caught sight of the fireball on December 18, 2018. NASA/GSFC/LaRC/JPL-Caltech, MISR Team A large meteoroid exploded over the Bering Sea on December 18, releasing an estimated 173 kilotons of energy, and almost no one noticed thanks to its remote location. On Friday, NASA shared images captured by its Earth-watching Terra satellite showing […]
