Oldest fossils or just rocks? Scientists at odds over 3.7 billion-year-old structures.

This photograph shows stromatolytic putative structures in an outcrop (arrows). A new study says that some structures point downwards and some indicate: they are not traces of microbial mats grown from a seabed but are formed through geological processes, the authors say. (Abigail Allwood / NASA / Nature) It was an extraordinary statement: scientists studying a rock formation in Greenland …

Humans Are Wiping Out Species So Fast That Evolution Can’t Keep Up

With the consequences of human activities that push the Earth into a sixth mass extinction, a team of biologists has calculated that animal and plant species are swept away so rapidly that evolution can not keep up. Human activities, included pollution, deforestation, overpopulation, poaching, warming of the oceans and extreme weather events related to climate change – it is expected …

WATCH: Antarctic ice makes frightening ‘singing’ sounds

Winds blowing on snow dunes on Ross Ice Shelf of Antarctica cause the vibration of the massive surface of the ice sheet, producing an almost constant drum of seismic tones. Scientists could potentially use it to monitor changes in the ice shelf from afar, according to new research. . The "song" of the ice platform is too low to be …

New Memristor Boosts Accuracy and Efficiency For Neural Networks on an Atomic Scale

The new Memristor increases the accuracy and efficiency of atomic-scale neural networks Just like their biological counterparts, the hardware that mimics the neural circuits of the brain requires building blocks can regulate their synapses, with some connections that will strengthen others' expenditure. One of these approaches, called memristors, uses the current resistance to store this information. A new work seems …
