Embryos Created at Christmas Are Viable—Raising Hopes For the 2 Remaining Northern White Rhinos

Following up on their success of the last two years, the international collaborative effort to save the northern white rhino from extinction has extracted another 14 egg cells from Fatu, one of the two females rhinos that make up the living remainder of the species. These would end up offering two viable fertilized eggs for […]

‘Stunning’ Victorian Bathhouse Uncovered Beneath a Manchester Parking Lot

A stunning Victorian-era bathhouse over 150-years old was uncovered when builders upended a Manchester parking lot during the construction of a new public park.

Teeth pendants speak of the elk’s prominent status in the Stone Age

The elk was the most important animal to the people inhabiting the northern coniferous belt, with its incisors being perhaps the most coveted part of the body. Incisors were turned into pendants, which were attached using strings made of fibre or sinew. The manufacturing techniques of the thousands of elk tooth pendants discovered in the graves of hunter-gatherers who lived approximately 8,200 years ago depict a homogeneous culture and strict rules.

New U.S./U.K. startup collaboration brings clean energy and climate tech to

Inspired by kombucha tea, engineers create ‘living materials’

Engineers have developed a new way to generate tough, functional materials using a mix of bacteria and yeast similar to the ‘kombucha mother’ used to ferment tea. Using this mix, called a Syn-SCOBY (synthetic symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast), they produced cellulose embedded with enzymes that can perform a variety of functions, such as sensing environmental pollutants.
