Astronomers observe most distant galaxy ever spotted

Astronomers have spotted what could be the most distant astronomical object ever seen – a galaxy. Named HD1, the galaxy candidate is some 13.5 billion light-years away, and scientists are speculating what exactly it is. Researchers proposes two ideas, with the first being that HD1 may be forming stars at an astounding rate and is … Read more

Asteroid killed dinosaurs on Earth?  Here is the first link found

Scientists have discovered a well-preserved leg of a dinosaur that dates back the story to the day of an asteroid strike. Know what scientists have found. We all have often heard about the giant asteroid strike on Earth around 66 million years ago, which killed of all the dinosaurs. This was the massive asteroid Chicxulub … Read more

Astronomers Find What Might Be the Most Distant Galaxy Yet

Astronomers Find What Might Be the Most Distant Galaxy Yet

Astronomers have been leapfrogging each other into the past lately. Last week, a group using the Hubble Space Telescope announced they had discovered what could be the most distant and earliest star ever seen, nicknamed Earendel, which twinkled 12.9 billion years ago, only 900 million years after the Big Bang. Now another international group of … Read more

Volcanic Activity Could Be Responsible for Triggering Marsquakes in Cerberus Fossae

Volcanic Activity Could Be Responsible for Triggering Marsquakes in Cerberus Fossae

Using seismic data from NASA’s Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport (InSight) lander, planetary researchers from Australia and China have discovered 47 previously undetected marsquakes, >90% of which are associated with the two previously known events located beneath Cerberus Fossae , a seismically active region on Mars that is less than 20 … Read more

Rare Videos Show Captive Squid Changing Color to Hide in Plain Sight

Rare Videos Show Captive Squid Changing Color to Hide in Plain Sight

A team of scientists in Japan captured video of squid camouflage with their surroundings, much like octopuses and cuttlefish do. While squid in the wild are known to change colorthe scientists set up an experiment to confirm this camouflage ability in a laboratory. Like other cephalopods, squids have thousands of chromatophores—color-changing cells—under their skin. The … Read more
