Chemtrail Conspiracy Study Retracted, ‘Not Sufficiently Scientifically Objective’

September 4, 2015 12:57 pm | by Seth Augenstein, Digital Reporter | News | Comments

Chemtrails, the conspiracy theory that government planes are spraying substances from airplanes to “geoengineer” the environment and unsuspecting people on the ground, was investigated by a paper published on Aug. 11. Less than a month later, the journal retracted the study, partly because the “language of the paper is often not sufficiently scientifically objective.”

An international team of scientists have dated a species of fossil monkey found across the Caribbean to just over 1 million years old. The discovery was made after the researchers recovered a fossil tibia (shin bone) belonging to the species of extinct monkey Antillothrix bernensis from an underwater cave in Altagracia Province, Dominican Republic. 


Nature Provides Key to Defeating Superbugs

September 4, 2015 12:32 pm | by Skip Derra, Contributing Science Writer | Articles | Comments

In the war on disease, humans are at a loss. Armed with antibiotics, once thought to be miracle drugs, humans gained the upper hand and millions of lives were saved. But bacteria are smart and have been on Earth far longer than humans, so they began to develop resistance to antibiotics.

September 4, 2015 12:22 pm | by University of Vermont | News | Comments

Natural wonders like tumbling waterfalls, jutting rock faces and banks of wildflowers have long drawn visitors to America’s national parks and inspired efforts to protect their beauty. According to a study, visitors also value and seek to protect a different kind of threatened natural resource in the parks: dark nighttime skies.


Chemical Analysis Finds Pigments Persist in Dino Feathers

September 4, 2015 12:21 pm | by Greg Watry, Digital Reporter | News | Comments

An international team of researchers has found chemical evidence of melanosome preservation in fossilized dinosaur feathers, using evidence from a specimen of Anchiornis huxleyi. The evidence of animal-specific melanin in fossil feathers is the final nail in the coffin that shows that these microbodies are indeed melanosomes and not microbes.


New Horizons Sets Sight on Next Target

September 4, 2015 12:18 pm | by Greg Watry, Digital Reporter | News | Comments

NASA’s New Horizons team has eyed its next potential target, a small Kuiper Belt object orbiting nearly a billion miles beyond Pluto. Known as 2014 MU69, the celestial body, scientists estimate, is under 30 miles across, but still more than 10 times lager and 1,000 times more massive than typical comets. However, it’s still 0.5 to 1% the size of Pluto.

Study: Climate Change Will Force Marine Species to Move

September 4, 2015 12:08 pm | by UC Santa Barbara | News | Comments

As the world’s oceans warm in response to climate change, marine species are relocating — generally toward the poles — in pursuit of water temperatures that suit them. This in turn will increase biodiversity in many areas or lead to extinctions in others.


Researchers See 'Spin Current' in Motion for the First Time

September 4, 2015 12:05 pm | by SLAC | News | Comments

Researchers have for the first time seen a spin current – an inherent magnetic property common to all electrons – as it travels across materials. The result, which revealed a surprising loss of current along the way, is an important step toward realizing a next-generation breed of electronics known as “spintronics."
