Mind-reading Machine

Winning at "I spy" would be a whole lot easier if there were just some way to know what your opponent was looking at. It's not too far-fetched an idea. A team of researchers in California has developed a way to predict what kinds of objects people are loo Read More



Manatees

Manatees inhabit the shallow, marshy coastal areas of North, Central, and South America, and the Caribbean Sea. They spend half of their day sleeping in the water, surfacing for air every 20 minutes. Read More

Peafowl

The term peafowl can refer to any of three species of bird in the genera Pavo and Afropavo of the pheasant family, Phasianidae. They are most notable for the male's extravagant tail, which it displays as part of courtship. The male is the peacock. Read More

Boosting Fuel Cells

Some people are happy to learn simply for the sake of learning. Megan Burger would rather use her education to create cutting-edge inventions with important uses. That's exactly what the 18-year-old has done. At this year's Intel International Science an Read More

Snakes

Although often described as "slimey", snakes are actually anything but. Like all reptiles their bodies are very dry, but the shine of their unique scales makes it appear as if their skin has a slick appearance. Read More

A Planet's Slim-Fast Plan

If you sit in a parked car on a hot summer's day, you may feel like you're melting. But that's nothing compared to what some planets go through. Read More

Backyard Birds

Birdwatching doesn't always mean hiking to exotic locations or wandering deep into the forest in search of feathered friends. Adaptable to almost any environment, many species of birds have made our homes their own. Read More

Chicken Eggs as Drug Factories

Medicine comes in lots of different packages. Painkillers in a tablet can make your headache go away. Antibiotic cream from a tube can prevent your cuts from becoming infected. But can medicine come packaged in chicken eggs? A team of scientists from Sco Read More

Llamas

The Llama skull generally resembles that of Camelus, the relatively larger brain-cavity and orbits and less developed cranial ridges being due to its smaller size. The nasal bones are shorter and broader, and are joined by the premaxilla. Read More

Cooking Up Superhard Diamonds

Diamonds are more than just sparkling gems. They also happen to be one of the hardest materials on Earth. Now, scientists have found a way to make diamonds even harder by cooking them under pressure with lots of heat. Using the new technique, Russell J. Read More

Watery Fate for Nature's Gliders

Talk about winging it. The albatross is an amazing glider. In windy weather, these ocean birds can stay airborne for hours without flapping their enormous wings. They've been known to follow ships for days to feed on garbage. Today, there are about 17 sp Read More

Oxen

Oxen (plural of ox) are cattle trained as draft animals. Often they are adult, castrated males. Usually an ox is over four years old due to the need for training and for time to grow to full size. Read More

A Whale's Amazing Tooth

The narwhal looks as if it belongs in a fairy tale. Or maybe a myth. This unusual whale has a long, straight tooth, or tusk, that resembles the horn of a unicorn. Most male and some female narwhals have such a tusk. It sticks out from the left side of the Read More

Inspired by Nature

People do a lot of things that plants and animals can't do. We can talk and read. We can play computer games and go snowboarding—stuff that no worm or fern could ever do. Read More

Walking Sticks

Phasmids (or Walking Sticks as they are commonly called) are one of the most remarkable orders of insects. They are typically either stick-like or leaf-like; camouflage or mimicry being their defining characteristic. Read More

Koalas, Up Close and Personal

Koalas are, hands down, the cutest animals I've ever seen in the wild. With fluffy fur, pudgy bodies, round eyes, and wisps of spiky hair sprouting from behind their ears, koalas look like teddy bears with attitude. Every time I saw a koala during my rec Read More

Opposum

Opossums probably diverged from the basic South American marsupials in the late Cretaceous or early Paleocene. A sister group is the Paucituberculata, or shrew opossums. They are commonly also called "possums". Read More

Seeing red means danger ahead

The color red often means danger — and by paying attention, accidents can be prevented. At railroad crossings, flashing red lights warn cars to stay back. A red light at a traffic intersection tells cars to stop, so they don’t run into other cars. And whe Read More

Digging Dinos

Dinosaurs didn't just roam the Earth's surface during their reign on the planet tens of millions of years ago. New evidence suggests that some dinos also spent time underground. Paleontologists from Montana State University in Bozeman made the discovery. Read More

Robins

The American Robin (Turdus migratorius) is a migratory songbird of the thrush family. The American Robin is 25-28 cm (10-11 in) long. It has gray upperparts and head, and orange underparts, usually brighter in the male. Read More

Lion

The Lion Panthera leo is a mammal of the family Felidae and one of four "big cats" in the panthera genus. The lion is the second largest living cat, after the tiger. The male lion, easily recognized by his mane,weighs between 150-225 Kg (330-500 lb). Read More

Watching deep-space fireworks

Space is full of fireworks: Galaxies smash into each other, dying stars explode and high-energy particles race toward us at the speed of light. The most powerful explosions in the universe are brilliant flashes of light called gamma-ray bursts. Read More

The Book of Life

So far, scientists have named about 1.8 million living species, and that's just a fraction of what probably exists on Earth. With so many plants, animals, fungi, and other organisms covering the planet, it can be tough to figure out what type of spider is Read More

Swimming with Sharks and Stingrays

Every day, boats full of tourists arrive at Shark Ray Alley, where tour guides feed chunks of fish guts to the animals. Read More
