    Megalodon feasted on the noses of sperm whales
    Megalodon — the biggest shark that ever lived — ate sperm whales because it was attracted by their huge noses, a new study claims. Measuring up to 65ft long and weighing an estimated 100 tonnes, the prehistoric predator was one of the most ferocious animals when it swam in oceans around the globe between 23 and 3.6 million years ago. The sperm whale’s enormous snout, which makes up a third of its body, was particularly appealing to megalodon because it…

    Scientists cannot create drug for deadly pathogen that has killed THOUSANDS across 50 countries
    A deadly pathogen emerged in 2009 that scientists have yet to tackle with drugs and the reason is because it reproduces sexually. Most infectious bacteria reproduces asexually, meaning it creates strains that are copies of itself – allowing drugs to be made. However, Candida auris mate with each other and produce different strains each time. C. auris causes bloodstream infections, wound infections and ear infections and can sometimes result in death. It was first discovered in 2009 and has since…

    Stunning Roman mosaic featuring wild animals and marine scenes returns to Israel after tour
    A gorgeous and detailed Roman mosaic has come back home to Israel after more than ten years touring major museums worldwide. The 1,700-year-old mosaic was initially discovered by accident in 1996 by Miriam Avisar from the Israeli Antiquities Authority (IAA) during a dig that was trying to save archaeological finds in a squite on HeKhalutz St. in Lod. It took another 13 years for it to be fully unearthed by researchers. ‘It was the biggest and most impressive and unique…

    Invasion of the ‘rock snot’: Gooey algae that suffocates organisms are infecting Michigan waterways
    Gooey ‘rock snot’ that suffocates organisms living on the bottom of rivers and streams is invading Michigan waterways. Formally known as didymo, this algae creates a mat that can grow over six inches thick and some have been observed to be two-feet-long. While non-toxic, rock snot reduces habitat for macroinvertebrates that are an important food for the underwater ecosystem. The algae can also survive for 40 days in cool, dark, damp conditions such as on angling equipment, neoprene and felt-soled…

    Cyberbullying has a worse impact on its young teenage victims than ‘traditional’ bullying in person
    Cyberbullying has a worse impact on its young teenage victims than ‘traditional’ bullying in person, a new study has revealed.

They found that victims of online bullying in early adolescence are more likely to report suicidal thoughts and attempts than those who have experienced…

    People who have similar body odours are more likely to make friends, study shows
    It’s already known that mammals such as dogs sniff each other to decide who is friend or foe. Now, researchers in Israel have found that humans do the same, although on a more ‘covert’ and subconscious level. By smelling clothes with a device called an ‘eNose’, the experts found people who have similar body odours are more likely to make friends with each other. These new results suggest that the sense of smell may play a larger role in human…

    NASA is set to launch its ‘CAPSTONE’ spacecraft this morning
    NASA is finally set to launch its ‘CAPSTONE’ spacecraft mission on Tuesday morning, marking an important early stage in its Artemis programme. The spacecraft, which is about the size of a microwave oven and weighs just 55 pounds, will blast off from Māhia Peninsula, New Zealand at 5:55 EDT (10:55 BST). Over six months, it will test the stability of a halo-shaped orbit around the moon before this orbit is used by Lunar Gateway, NASA’s planned lunar outpost. Lunar Gateway…

    Is arthritis making your life a misery? Try a workout… or a chat!
    Exercise and talking therapy could help thousands of patients with rheumatoid arthritis combat crippling fatigue, a study suggests. Sufferers from other inflammatory diseases, such as lupus and axial spondylitis, could also benefit from the treatments, which should be part of routine care, experts say. Around 800,000 people in the UK have these conditions and four in five of them live with fatigue every day. This affects their ability to concentrate, go to work or live independently. Researchers from the universities…

    SpaceX and Virgin Galactic space ships could destroy the Ozone layer again
    SpaceX and Virgin Galactic have sparked a new era of space travel and although these joy rides to the final frontier are exciting, they have a dark side that is accelerating climate change, a new study reveals. A team of scientists, led by the University of London College, found that black carbon particles emitted by rockets are almost 500 times more efficient at holding heat in the atmosphere than all other sources of soot combined – and this is enhancing…

    Israel’s AI-powered system that can ‘SEE’ through walls
    The Israeli military is using AI-powered detection system that lets soldiers see through walls before attacking. Designed in part with Camero-Tech, Xaver 1000 uses algorithms to track targets behind an obstacle, which are then displayed on a screen fitted in the center of the device. Xaver 1000, which users place directly on the wall, produces such high resolution displays that users can determine if a person is sitting, standing or lying down. The system is also capable of providing measurements…

    Fossils in the ‘Cradle of Humankind’ are one MILLION years older than previously thought
    Fossils of early human ancestors in the so-called ‘Cradle of Humankind’ in South Africa may be more than a million years older than previously thought, according to a new study. The Sterkfontein Caves in Johannesburg contain more than a third of the world’s early hominid fossils – crucial links in the evolutionary chain to modern humans. Sterkfontein was made famous by the discovery of the first adult Australopithecus, an ancient hominin, by Robert Broom in 1936. It had previously been…
