A phys­i­cist has cal­cu­lat­ed that in four spe­cial places on Earth each year, for a thou­sandth of a sec­ond, ob­jects might be able to move slight­ly with no push of any sort.The prop­o­si­tion stems from an un­u­su­al the­o­ry of mo­tion that some re­search­ers have de­vised to ex­plain move­ments of stars and galax­ies which, oth­er­wise, seem to vi­o­late the laws of grav­i­ty. For in­stance, stars ap­pear to or­bit the cen­ters of galax­ies faster than they should. ... [full story]

WASHINGTON - A new NASA study has found that in 2005 the Arctic replaced very little of the thick sea ice it normally loses and replenishes each year. Replenishment of this thick, perennial sea ice each year is essential to the maintenance and stability of the Arctic summer ice cover. The findings complement a NASA study released in fall 2006 that found a 14-percent drop in this perennial ice between 2004 and 2005. The lack ... [full story]

When the cat's away, the mice will play. And for some­what si­m­i­lar rea­sons, bi­ol­o­gists have long be­lieved that the ex­tinc­tion of di­no­saurs caused the great flour­ish­ing of mam­mals on Earth - a pro­cess that pro­duced spe­cies in­clud­ing ours. That's not quite the way things hap­pened, a study has found.   A Cape Hy­rax (Pro­ca­via ca­p­en­sis), a small Af­ri­can mam­mal that looks like a ro­dent but is ac­tu­al­ly re­lat­ed to ele­phants.

An odd, six-sided, honeycomb-shaped fea­ture en­cir­cling Sat­urn’s North Pole has cap­tured the in­ter­est of sci­en­tists with NASA’s Cas­si­ni space­craft mis­sion.  The agency’s Voy­ag­er 1 and 2 space­craft im­aged the hex­a­gon over two dec­ades ago, but its ap­pear­ance in new Cas­si­ni im­ages shows it’s long lived, height­en­ing the rid­dle, sci­en­tists said. This night­time view of Sat­urn's north pole shows a bi­zarre six-sided hex­a­gon fea­ture en­cir­cling the north pole.
