Smallest ever Tylosaurus fossil sheds light on species

The smallest Tylosaurus mosasaur fossil ever found has been revealed in a new study, and surprisingly it lacks a trademark feature of the species.


World's fastest camera freezes time at 10 trillion frames per second

Researchers have developed what they call T-CUP: the world's fastest camera, capable of capturing ten trillion frames per second. This new camera literally makes it possible to freeze time to see phenomena -- and even light! -- in extremely slow motion.


Breakthrough in self-healing materials

Researchers have given self-healing qualities to polymers that are used in relatively inexpensive commodities, such as paints, plastics and coatings.


Death of a massive star and birth of compact neutron star binary



Posted: 11 Oct 2018 11:31 AM PDT


The unexpectedly gentle death of a massive star suggests that it was being robbed by a dense companion lurking out of sight.


Mouse pups with same-sex parents born in China using stem cells and gene editing



Posted: 11 Oct 2018 11:31 AM PDT


Researchers were able to produce healthy mice with two mothers that went on to have normal offspring of their own. Mice from two dads were also born but only survived for a couple of days. The work looks at what makes it so challenging for animals of the same sex to produce offspring and suggests that some of these barriers can be overcome using stem cells and targeted gene editing.


Do lizards dream like us?

Researchers have confirmed that lizards exhibit two sleep states, just like humans, other mammals, and birds. They corroborated the conclusions of a 2016 study on the bearded dragon and conducted the same sleep investigation on another lizard, the Argentine tegu. Their findings nevertheless point out differences between species, which raises new questions about the origin of sleep states.
