New species of duck-billed dinosaur found in Japan
2021-04-30 12:54 It is distinguished by the absence of a characteristic hadrosaur head crest. Scientists from Japan and the United States believe that this discovery forces us to reconsider the ideas about the migration of duck-billed dinosaurs, which did not move from North America to Asia, but vice versa. Hadrosaurs are the most common type of dinosaur. They had flattened snouts, were herbivorous, and lived more than 65 m...
World could lose coral reefs by end of century, UN environment report warns
2020-12-23 17:20 Every one of the world’s coral reefs could bleach by the end of the century, unless there are drastic reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has warned.  “In the face of inaction, coral reefs will soon disappear,” Leticia Carvalho, head of UNEP’s Marine and Freshwater Branch said on Monday.  “Humanity must act with evidence-based urgency, ambition and innov...
Scientists discover a new complex europium hydride
2020-12-21 18:26 A team of researchers from Russia, the United States and China led by Skoltech Professor Artem R. Oganov have discovered an unexpected very complex europium hydride, Eu8H46. The paper detailing the discovery has been published in The Journal of Physical Chemistry letters. Superhydrides of rare-earth metals are interesting compounds that form under pressure: some exhibit high-temperature superconductivity t...
The oldest samples of mammalian wool were found
2020-11-23 18:34 RIA of news. Spanish paleontologists reported finding two unique amber specimens in the province of Teruel. In one of them, scientists found dinosaur feathers, and in the other — the world's oldest mammalian hair. The age of the finds is 105 and 110 million years, which corresponds to the early Cretaceous period. Cretaceous amber has been found in the province of Teruel before, but this is the first ti...
Beat the record temperature for superconductivity
2020-11-05 20:32 Compressing simple molecular solids with hydrogen at extremely high pressures, University of Rochester engineers and physicists have, for the first time, created material that is superconducting at room temperature. Featured as the cover story in the journal Nature, the work was conducted by the lab of Ranga Dias, an assistant professor of physics and mechanical engineering. Dias says developing materials...
Denisovan DNA found in sediments of Baishiya Karst Cave on Tibetan Plateau
2020-11-01 13:48 One year after the publication of research on the Xiahe mandible, the first Denisovan fossil found outside of Denisova Cave, the same research team has now reported their findings of Denisovan DNA from sediments of the Baishiya Karst Cave (BKC) on the Tibetan Plateau where the Xiahe mandible was found. The study was published in Science on Oct. 29. The research team was led by Prof. CHEN Fahu from the Inst...
