‘Frankenstein’ dinosaur could be the ‘missing link’, researchers say

‘Frankenstein’ dinosaur could be the ‘missing link’, researchers sayA strange ‘Frankenstein’ dinosaur may be the ‘missing link’ between plant-eating dinosaurs and theropods – a group which includes carnivores such as T-Rex. Chilesaurus lived 150 million years ago, and looked like a raptor – but was in fact a vegetarian. Researchers from the University of Cambridge and the Natural History Museum analysed 450 anatomical characteristics of early dinosaurs to place ‘Chilesaurus’ in the dinosaur family tree.

Ancient Egypt: Tombs More Than 2,000 Years Old Uncovered by Archaeologists in Hidden Burial Chambers

Ancient Egypt: Tombs More Than 2,000 Years Old Uncovered by Archaeologists in Hidden Burial ChambersArcheologists in Egypt have uncovered ancient rock tombs, carved almost two-and-half millennia ago during the time of the pharaohs, as they excavated chambers, two of which were hidden down burial shafts. The tombs from the 27th dynasty and the Greco-Roman era contain a number of sarcophagi, a type of ancient Egyptian coffin typically adorned with a sculpture or inscription, of different shapes and sizes, as well as a collection of clay fragments, the Egyptian Ministry said in a statement. The location of the dig, in the El-Kamil El-Sahrawi archaeological site, in central Egypt near the banks of the Nile, previously unearthed 20 tombs in a series of ancient catacombs in 2015.

Here’s why so many people believe in conspiracy theories (and it’s not because they’re thick)

Here’s why so many people believe in conspiracy theories (and it’s not because they’re thick)Conspiracy theories became big news last year as ‘fake news’ sites spread misinformation during the election – including conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton. It could be a sense that they are unique – and not part of the herd, according to researchers at Grenoble Alps University. The researchers found that people who agreed with the statement, ‘You’re unique’ more than the statement, ‘We’re all the same,’ were more likely to believe in conspiracy theories.

Giant tortoise that fled Japan zoo found 140 metres away

Giant tortoise that fled Japan zoo found 140 metres awayA giant tortoise that made a break from a Japanese zoo has been found safe and sound two weeks after it escaped -- just 140 metres from the park. Zoo keepers, unable to trace the truant tortoise, offered a reward of 500,000 yen ($4,500) for her safe return. "We were so relieved that she came back safely as she is so popular among children," said zoo staffer Yoshimi Yamane, describing Abuh -- who weighs 55 kilogrammes (121 pounds) -- as having a "gentle" disposition.

Google Lunar XPRIZE teams get more time and more cash incentives for moon shots

Google Lunar XPRIZE teams get more time and more cash incentives for moon shotsThe Google Lunar XPRIZE finalists now have $4.75 million more to shoot for with the moon missions they’re planning, and more time to shoot for the moon as well. The competition was set up a decade ago to encourage commercial moon exploration, with Google donating the prize money and the nonprofit XPRIZE organization handling the logistics. A grand prize of $20 million was set aside to the first privately funded team to land a probe on the moon, get it to move at least 500 meters (yards) on the surface, and have it send back high-definition video and images.

'Missing link' bolsters bold theory on dino evolution

'Missing link' bolsters bold theory on dino evolutionAn oddball, vegetarian dinosaur with the silhouette of a flesh-ripping velociraptor, whose fossilised remains were unearthed in southern Chile 13 years ago, is a missing link in dino evolution, researchers said Wednesday. A revised assessment of the kangaroo-sized Chilesaurus, reported in the journal Biology Letters, bolsters a theory unveiled earlier this year that threatens to upend a long-standing classification of all dinosaurs. "Chilesaurus genuinely helps fill an evolutionary gap between two big dinosaur groups," said co-author Paul Barrett, president of Britain's Palaeontographical Society and a researcher at the Natural History Museum.

How a total solar eclipse happens, explained with augmented reality

How a total solar eclipse happens, explained with augmented realityWith an elaborate augmented reality display, The Weather Channel set the stage for what to expect Monday when the total solar eclipse passes along the entire continental United States.  SEE ALSO: How to watch the total solar eclipse from anywhere on Earth An AR demonstration showed how the sun, moon, and Earth will align just right in the solar system for the "celestial Super Bowl." Meteorologist and TWC host Jim Cantore used AR graphics to show how the penumbra and umbra of the moon will cast a shadow on Earth.  Along a special path from Oregon to South Carolina, the moon's dark shadow will completely blot out the sun as it moves 1,700 mph across the country. That's pretty quick, so anyone on the path of totality will experience total darkness for only a few minutes before it moves along. No AR gimmicks were needed to remind everyone to wear appropriate eyewear while watching the solar phenomenon.

David Attenborough has fossilised damselfly named after him

David Attenborough has fossilised damselfly named after himDavid Attenborough finally earned his wings Wednesday after scientists named a 100-million-year-old damselfly after the veteran British broadcaster and naturalist. The delicate creature, dubbed Mesosticta davidattenboroughi, was discovered in Myanmar's Kachin province locked inside a nugget of amber dating from the mid-Cretaceous, when dinosaurs still lorded over the planet. "Dragonflies in amber are extremely rare," said Edmund Jarzembowski, a scientist at the Natural History Museum in London and co-author of the study that describes the insect and officially registered the new name.
