Scientists have been able to reconstruct, for the first time, the intricate three-dimensional structure of the backbone of early tetrapods, the earliest four-legged animals. High-energy X-rays and a new data extraction protocol allowed the researchers to reconstruct the backbones of the 360 million year old fossils in exceptional detail and shed new light on how the first vertebrates moved from water onto land.

Overcame His Fears, Mesothelioma Survivor Fought Disease

Researchers discover key protein that is highly critical for cancer growth. The Melbourne research team showed that when denied the protein the cancer cell death was rapid. Kelly said, "It's dramatic. It occurs within 24 to 72 hours.

Eurypterid fossil

Eurypterid (sea scorpions) are an extinct group of arthropods related to arachnids which include the largest known arthropods that ever lived. Largest fossil in this group ever found about 8 ft.

Xiphactinus--a 20 ft. long predatory fish that swam the seas of North America during the Late Cretaceous. Check out the teeth.

Rare fish fossil over 50 million years old with teeth like Jaws unearthed in Colorado

Giant Carnivorous Fish (Xiphactinus audax) from the late Cretaceous Period

Very cool!

fossil hunting (only where it's legal) in Montana, North Dakota and Washington. Fun for all ages.

Why I Stopped a Cycle of Family Shame About Hearing Loss

Can you imagine hearing light? The technology "listens" for light waves and could help open up the last frontier of the electromagnetic spectrum-the terahertz range.

More small meat-eating dinosaurs than thought

University of Alberta researchers used fossilized teeth to identify at least 23 species of small meat-eating dinosaurs that roamed western Canada and the United States, 85 to 65 million years ago.

A more-accurate, less-invasive cancer test now on the market is based not only on genomics but on the same mathematical theories underlying data communication.
