Ducklings understand complex concept of ‘same’ and ‘different’: Study

It was considered that abstract relational thinking is unique to humans only, but it is not true, unveils a new study. Researchers from Oxford University have found that newborn ducklings understand complex concepts like same and different, abstractions considered beyond capacity for most animals.

Multiple farmer groups spread farming in Eurasia

Multiple farmer groups spread farming in Eurasia

Research findings published in the journal Science has indicated that farming has resulted from a single source. In fact, multiple farmer groups have been responsible to spread farming across Eurasia. The researchers said that these farmers were genetically different from each other.

Study researchers have unveiled the same after assessing ancient DNA from the remains of four individuals who lived around 10,000 years back on the eastern side of the Fertile Crescent.

A First: Cloaking device made curved surfaces to appear flat to electromagnetic waves

A new research development has taken scientists one step closer to actualization of invisibility cloaks and disappearing sorcerers. Using composite material with nano-sized particles, researchers at Queen Mary University of London have made an object to become invisible.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory detects coronal hole phenomenon

Recently, NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory detected a massive dark spot spreading across the sun’s surface. The astronomical phenomenon, known as a coronal hole, causes no harm. It is basically a low density spot in the corona, which is plasma layer surrounding our sun. The hole opens the sun’s magnetic field to interplanetary space producing solar wind streams that push out coronal matter.

Scientists observe what they call ‘water snow line’ for first time ever

Scientists observe what they call ‘water snow line’ for first time ever

Scientists have spotted what they call a ‘water snow line’ for the first time ever. It is the point at which the temperatures within the disk rotating around a young star fall sufficiently low to enable snow formation.
