Dumped Iron fillings in sea can trap carbon dioxide in the depth of the ocean bed?

A new study states the dumping and discarding of iron into the oceans leads to the burial of carbon dioxide in the ocean depths for centuries, diminishing the effect of the climatic changes. The novel study states that fertilization of the seas due to the addition of iron fillings lead to algae blooms. These algae dies and as time pass away, they deteriorate and then submerge into the depth of the deep seas. When these remains sink they tug along the carbon that they have absorbed right down to the ocean floor.

Strange characteristics of corn flour mixture's unravelled

According to a new study, it is due to the compression of particles just below the strike area which jams together when under a force, that the thick mixture of water and corn flour which otherwise pours like a liquid, solidifies.

Merging an ancient 500-Million-Year-Old DNA into Modern E-coli Bacteria! Molecular rewinding of life?

Is evolution being re-staged by the scientists? We hold on to the sides of our chairs as the scientists burn their midnight oil trying to recreate a dinosaur in their laboratories.They have been successful with bacteria and ancient plants and now have finally managed to merge a bacteria with a 500 year old gene !

White rot fungus may put an end to the development of Coal deposits?

Scientists feel that the development of coal deposits may have seen an end due to the evolution of the white–rot fungus. The study findings state that, it took nearly 60 million long years for the coal deposits to be formed but the fungi has the caliber to split down its organic polymer lignin. It is this polymer lignin that keeps the plant cell walls upright and rigid. This was an online study research mentioned in edition of Science on the 29th of June.

Guinness World Record on fire with hottest man-made temperature at 7.2 Trillion degrees

According to the scientists, a giant atom-smashing has just broken a Guinness World Record by reaching the highest man-made temperature ever recorded. It is in fact 250,000 times hotter than the center of the sun.

Did the "dull-witted" Neanderthals, our extinct cousins create cave paintings?

The archaeologists busy researching the age of the Paleolithic caves in Spain with new techniques discovered that the paintings on the cave walls were much older than they had anticipated. The paintings unearthed were done thousands of years earlier than they had estimated earlier. It pointed towards the time of the Neanderthals!

Plants evolve to live in nitrogen-poor environments

Carnivores plants

A U.K based biologists team found that round leaf sundew plants in southern Swedish bogs are taking up more nitrogen via their roots than those in northern and central bogs.

The meat eating plants in Sweden are so possessive on nitrogen pollution that they are able to eat f

Rare species of microbes unearthed on unfriendly South American Volcanic Mountains

The tallest South American Volcanoes in the Atacama region, with hardly any snow are under the microscope this time. These South American volcanoes with dry soil have no nutrients. These mountains have a top resembling the Martian-like landscape. Researchers are perpetually on the lookout for organisms residing in the most unfriendly dirty surroundings. The DNA analysis of the mountain soil has showed up a cluster of bacteria, Achaea and fungus communities.
