Paleontologists have tracked the migration and extinction of mastodons
DNA analysis from the remains of mastodons from all over North America showed that these majestic animals could make long journeys, mastering the Northern territories, but as a result, they only died out faster. As the climate warms, some species may expand their range, moving further North: this was the case with American mastodons, relatives of our mammoths, during the interglacial periods. However, this...

Geologists have clarified the age of the earth's inner core
The massive iron-nickel core of our planet is divided into an internal solid and an external liquid. The convection transfer of heat from the center to the Earth's surface causes the liquid core to constantly mix. It is believed that the movements of this conducting fluid create a global magnetic field that protects the planet and life on it from constant and deadly bombardment by streams of cosmic part...
Lipid nanoparticles have been used in gene therapy
Scientists from Ohio state University have created lipid-based nanoparticles that can deliver genetic material to cells to fight diseases associated with mutations. Effective and safe delivery of "therapeutic genes" to the body is one of the most important problems in the development of gene therapy. Most often, specially designed viruses are used for this purpose. In the new work, the authors applied lipi...
Mauritius oil spill highlights importance of global maritime laws: UN trade body
The devastating oil spill off the east coast of Mauritius has highlighted the need for global adoption of international legislation that govern the seas and protect small island states and their vulnerable marine ecosystems against ship pollution, UN trade body UNCTAD has stated.  The grounding last month of the MV Wakashio in an environmentally sensitive and biodiverse area, has endangered marine life, fo...
Scientists have explained the skeletons of dinosaurs withstood huge loading
    A team of paleontologists, mechanical engineers, and biomedical engineers compared computed tomography of fossilized bones of hadrosaurs and other dinosaurs with those of extinct and living mammals and found that the architecture of the trabecular bone of dinosaurs is unique and can withstand large weights (up to 47,000 kg) and differs from mammals and birds.     The largest of the earth's dinosaur...
