A black hole dubbed 'the Unicorn' may be galaxy's smallest one

Welcome to the Reuters.com BETA. Read our Editor's note on how we're helping professionals make smart decisions.Scientists have discovered what may be the smallest-known black hole in the Milky Way galaxy and the closest to our solar system - an object so curious that they nicknamed it 'the Unicorn.'The researchers said the black hole is roughly three times the mass of our sun, testing the lower limits of size for these extraordinarily dense objects that possess gravitational pulls so strong not even light can escape. A luminous star called a red giant orbits with the black hole in a...

Around 2.5 billion Tyrannosaurus rex have walked the Earth, according to new study

Getting audio file ... Audio for this article is not available at this time. This translation has been automatically generated and has not been verified for accuracy. If one Tyrannosaurus rex - the school bus-sized meat-eating dinosaur that stalked the Cretaceous Period landscape - seems impressive, how about 2.5 billion of them? Researchers on Thursday unveiled the first calculation of the total T. rex population during the estimated 2.4 million years that this fearsome species inhabited western North America during the twilight of the age of dinosaurs. They considered factors including...

Octopus research yields insight into the evolution of sleep

Octopus research yields insight into the evolution of sleep

The octopus is an extraordinary creature — and not only because of its eight limbs, three hearts, blue blood, ink squirting, camouflage capacity and the tragic fact that it dies after mating.A study by researchers in Brazil published last week shows that this animal, already considered perhaps the smartest invertebrate, experiences two major alternating sleep states eerily similar to those in humans — and it even might dream.The findings, the researchers said, provide fresh evidence that the octopus possesses a complex and sophisticated neurobiology that underlies an equally sophisticated...

Painstaking study of ‘Little Foot’ fossil sheds light on human origins

Painstaking study of ‘Little Foot’ fossil sheds light on human origins

ADSophisticated scanning technology is revealing intriguing secrets about Little Foot, the remarkable fossil of an early human forerunner that inhabited South Africa 3.67 million years ago during a critical juncture in our evolutionary history.Scientists said last week they examined key parts of the nearly complete and well-preserved fossil at Britain’s national synchrotron facility, Diamond Light Source. The scanning focused upon Little Foot’s cranial vault — the upper part of her braincase — and her lower jaw, or mandible.The researchers gained insight into not only the biology of Little...

Scientists extract from Siberian mammoth molars the oldest DNA ever recovered

Scientists extract from Siberian mammoth molars the oldest DNA ever recovered

ADScientists have recovered the oldest DNA on record, extracting it from the molars of mammoths that roamed northeastern Siberia up to 1.2 million years ago in research that broadens the horizons for understanding extinct species.The researchers said last week they had recovered and sequenced DNA from the remains of three individual mammoths — elephant cousins that were among the large mammals that dominated Ice Age landscapes — entombed in permafrost conditions conducive to preservation of ancient genetic material.While the remains were discovered starting in the 1970s, new scientific...

Dinosaur-era bird with scythe-like beak sheds light on avian diversity

By WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A delicate but exquisitely preserved skull of a crow-sized bird with a scythe-like beak that inhabited Madagascar 68 million years ago is showing scientists that they have a lot of learn about avian diversity during the age of dinosaurs.Slideshow Scientists on Wednesday said the bird, called Falcatakely forsterae, possessed a face unlike any other known bird from the age of dinosaurs - the Mesozoic Era - not only because of the beak shape but because of its underlying anatomy.Its beak looked superficially like that of a small toucan though the two species are not...

Brash and pugnacious, Trump has presided over a tumultuous presidency
