FEATURED STORY
 

Early Earth Was Less Hellish than Thought

 
 
Featured Story  
Conditions on Earth for the first 500 million years after it formed may have been surprisingly similar to the present day, complete with oceans, continents and active crustal plates. This alternate view of Earth’s first geologic eon, called the Hadean, has gained substantial new support from the first detailed comparison of zircon crystals that formed more than 4 billion years ago with those formed contemporaneously in Iceland.

Is the U.S. Doing Enough to Fight Ebola?

Thumbnail
The American strategy on Ebola is two-pronged: step up desperately needed aid to West Africa and, in an unusual step, train U.S. doctors and nurses for volunteer duty in the outbreak zone. Amid criticism that the world still is not acting fast enough against the surging Ebola epidemic, Pres. Obama travels today to the CDC to discuss the outbreak with health officials who've been there.

ADHD Brain Study Finds Slower Development of Key Connections

Thumbnail
A peek inside the brains of more than 750 children and teens has revealed a key difference in brain architecture between those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and those without. Kids and teens with ADHD lag behind others of the same age in how quickly their brains form connections within— and between— key brain networks.

Sugars Can Promote, Inhibit Cancer Depending Upon Stage

During cancer development, tumor cells decorate their surfaces with sugar compounds called glycans that are different from those found on normal, healthy cells. New research has found that sialic acids at the tips of these cancer cell glycans are capable of engaging with immune system cells and changing the latter’s response to the tumor– for good and bad.

Mars Meteorite Yields Evidence of Possibility for Life

Thumbnail
A tiny fragment of Martian meteorite 1.3 billion years old is helping to make the case for the possibility of life on Mars, say scientists. The finding of a cell-like structure— which investigators now know once held water— came about as a result of collaboration between scientists in the UK and Greece.

Image of the Week: Approach Creates Strong, Conductive Carbon Threads

Thumbnail
The very idea of fibers made of carbon nanotubes is neat, but scientists are making them neater— literally. The single-walled carbon nanotubes in new fibers line up like a fistful of uncooked spaghetti through a process designed by a chemist and his colleagues.

Cheetah Robot Can Run, Jump, Untethered, Across Grass

Thumbnail
Researchers have developed an algorithm for bounding that they’ve successfully implemented in a robotic cheetah— a sleek, four-legged assemblage of gears, batteries and electric motors that weighs about as much as its feline counterpart. The team recently took the robot for a test run where it bounded across grass at a steady clip.

Strange Quantum Changes Studied Near Absolute Zero

Thumbnail
Heat drives classical phase transitions— solid, liquid and gas— but much stranger things can happen when the temperature drops. If phase transitions occur at the coldest temperatures, where quantum mechanics reigns, subtle fluctuations can dramatically transform a material. Now, scientists have explored this landscape of absolute zero to isolate and probe these quantum phase transitions with precision.

Today in Lab History: Karen Horney

Thumbnail
Karen Horney was a German-born American psychoanalyst, born Sept. 16, 1885, who departed from some of the basic principles of Sigmund Freud. She suggested that environmental and social conditions— rather than biological drives— determine much of an individual’s personality and are the chief causes of neuroses and personality disorders.
