New Clues Add 40,000 Years to Age of Human Species

...ays McDougall. “The pumice clasts are produced by explosive volcanic eruptions, and the rocks were probably carried to the Lake Turkana basin soon after, providing a time stamp for nearby sediments,?he adds. The results revealed how long ago the eruption occurred: roughly 196,000 years. "This provided an un...

Researchers discover underwater volcano

... coastal communities. Such hazards may include the explosive reaction between red-hot lava and seawater, or tsunamis that may be caused by the collapse of the newly built volcano. "It is a good idea for us to keep our eyes on this area, but there is no real reason for concern about immediate danger," said Sta...

...nstable; this causes instability of the sea and an explosive mixture of air and methane above. Any ships or planes travelling over the area could sink or catch fire. "So ancient, deep-sediment bacteria may be a key to sustainable energy in the future and to explaining a few disasters," said Professor Parkes. ...

Researchers discover how malaria parasite disperses from red blood cells

...ites, also break apart. The entire process has an explosive appearance, dispersing the merozoites some distance from the cell. During the release, Dr. Zimmerberg explained, the cell membrane appears to collapse inward upon itself and fragment into pieces. One previous theory held that the red blood cells ...

York researchers develop pollution-busting plants to clean up contaminated land

...d if we can redeploy the enzyme which degrades the explosive making it harmless, it combines the capabilities of soil bacteria with the high biomass and uptake properties in plants "We are using an enzyme already existing in the soil but putting it into a more efficient machine to biodegrade the RDX. It is a ...

There's something fishy about human brain evolution

...created the necessary physiological conditions for explosive brain growth," says Dr. Cunnane, a metabolic physiologist at the University of Sherbrooke in Sherbrooke, Quebec. The evolutionary growth in hominid brain size remains a mystery and a major point of contention among anthropologists. Our brains weigh ...
