Boffins Discover New 20-Million-Year-Old Ant Species Encased In Amber

Astonished scientists have discovered a previously unknown species of ant after scanning a 20-million-year-old block of amber. Researchers in Germany, France and Poland made the remarkable find after using micro-computed tomography to scan a block of amber from Africa dating to the early Miocene. The remarkably preserved specimen they found…

Bacteria For New Antibiotics Found In River In Chile

Scientists have discovered two bacteria with great antibiotic potential in a river in Chile. The breakthrough comes as the search for new bacteria to develop antibiotics is one of humankind’s greatest health challenges as bacterial infections are increasingly resistant to conventional medical treatments. The two bacteria were found by researchers…

Scientists May Have Discovered New Law Of Nature In Rain

A new law of nature could have been discovered as scientists think rain causes species to grow larger after an astonishing discovery in south America. The shaggy soft haired mouse was found to experience changes in size based on which side of the Andes it lives on. The ones on…

Balkan Cemetery Studies Reveal High Prehistoric Mortality Rate

A necropolis found in Bosnia and Herzegovina has revealed a high mortality rate in the prehistoric period after archaeologists discovered 46 graves and 53 individuals from the Bronze and Iron Ages. Picture shows burial construction with an outer ring of stones including three individual graves, undated. The discovery has been…

Swiss Glaciers Lose Half Their Volume In 85 Years, Study Shows

Switzerland’s glaciers have decreased by around 50 per cent within 85 years - and are now melting at an even faster rate. Experts studied tens of thousands of period photographs from 1931 onwards to reconstruct early 20th-century climate patterns. Between 1931 and 2016 the glaciers lost almost half their volume,…

Lab Creates ‘Synthetic’ Mouse Embryo With Brain And Beating Heart

A 'synthetic' embryo with a brain and beating heart has been created by British scientists. It features the foundations of all the body's organs - including neural and gut tubes that protect the developing spine and intestines. The 'world first' could solve the donor shortage crisis - and prevent miscarriages.…

Study Shows Camel Poop Does Not Treat Dysentery

Dutch boffins have debunked the myth that camel poo can help treat dysentery as was previously believed to have been done by nomadic Arab tribes in North Africa. The microbiologists from the Amsterdam UMC and the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands rejected the common belief according to which camel…

Human Noise Travels All The Way To Ocean Depths And Affects Seafloor Life – New Study

Scientists have demonstrated that noise caused by humans can carry all the way down to the seafloor and affect the marine wildlife that lives there. An increasing number of sounds caused by human activities - even low-frequency noises - are permeating the oceans' waters, with new evidence showing that "these…

Scientists Succeed In Reversing Alzheimer’s In Mice

Alzheimer's has been reversed in mice after scientists boosted the formation of new brain cells. A gene therapy fueled neurons in the hippocampus - a region vital for learning and remembering. The study was published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine (JEM). The breakthrough could lead to new treatments. The…
